Quote:

Let's setup ADB and fastboot


Windows:
- You can use my ReducedSDK Kit from Here
- Automated: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2588979 (follow the steps in the software)

- Manual Method:

Download this file and extract the folder called "adb" to your C: drive. Your path should look like this:


Code:
C:\adb\
You will need to open a command prompt window using this method:

Code:
- Go to the C:\adb\ folder 
- hold down SHIFT key and RIGHT-CLICK 
- select "Open command window here".
In order to use ADB & Fastboot from anywhere - use the following steps to setup windows environment variables:

Navigate to & click on Start > Right-Click on Computer > click on Advance System Settings >
Click on Environment Variables (under the advanced tab) > Click on New (User Variables) >
Variables Name: ADB (Or anything you want) Variables Value: ;C:\adb (this is the Path of my adb.exe file)



Mac & Linux:
you can use the reduced SDK as in attachments or :

Install ADB & fastboot using: this file

1. Extract the downloaded zip to your desktop
2. Open Terminal and type in:


Code:
su
cd Desktop/Android/ (note: Android is the directory extracted from zip file)
3. Now type

Code:
./ADB-Install-Mac.sh
Note: By using the method above, your adb and fastboot files are stored at this location on your Mac: /usr/bin/

----

^I have taken 90% of this from @vomer 's installation procedure for flashing android M on shamu


2.Backup all contents of your phone ,your phone will be completely wiped in this process
3.Extract the downloaded android m .tgz file and further the tar file in it .
(If using the ReducedSdk) then :Place the ReducedSdk file in this folder
4.Connect your phone with your pc in fastboot mode (boot using Volume down and Power button)
5.click flash all and wait..
6.Enjoy Android M
For linux users
After step 3
{IN TERMINAL }cd to the directory having the extracted files and then run
Code:
 sudo ./flash-all.sh
All those having problem installing or bootloops
either factory reset via stock recovery or See : Here

It works for me.

it's only the zImage as i made no modifications on ramdisk. You MUST flash stock MPZ79M boot.img, and then as usual flash this with "fastboot flash zimage zImage-dtb"



PS: Thread on Portal .Thanks for your support

Any chance there'll be a modified kernel with permissive or disabled SELinux when this ROM gets updated to a flashable zip? Just wondering. I'm already on M Preview but I hear that the kernel change is like the only way to use root for now until SuperSU is updated.

Normally @sykopompos and/or his team seem to come up with this first i believe
