Hi guys, this is my first question here. I wanted to build the kernel for my Micromax device (Spark 4g Prime), but micromax doesn't release the kernel source for its devices (gpl violation, yes, but it's a small company). I really searched everywhere, but could not find anything to help me. I did see a post by @dev_harsh1998 here where he mentioned that lenovo had given broken kernel source for his device, so he "reverse engineered" the kernel source from the boot.img. I didn't find anything on how to do that, can someone please help me out (or point me in the right direction)? Thanks:)
