I am new in android rom development, but I am very experienced in object-oriented languages, especially Java, so I thought I can check it out. I have a Nexus 5. I have followed AOSP guide (I've synchronised whole android repo). I want to build Android 8.1.0 for my Nexus 5, but I need drivers, right? On google driver binaries there ARE Nexus 5 drivers, but only for android 6.0.1 and below.
My question is: Can I use these drivers (for 6.0.1) with android 8.1.0? If not, How much changes will i need to make?
If you know any good tutorial for porting device drivers, please include the link.
Thanks for every answer, tip or advice.

EDIT: Oreo is on project treble, right? So if I contact the guy who made 8.0.0 rom for Nexus 5 and get the drivers from him, can I use them with 8.1.0?
