hi Guys,

as some of u maybe know from the Samsung Galaxy S3 or OPO area i'm doing a "build-service" for non official boeffla kernel builds and as we recently also got a boeffla kernel
for the One Plus Two device (kudos to @Lord Boeffla!) i want to share with u my self made Linaro/Uber builds for that device in addition.

i'm gonna reduce redundancy and keep it shorter this time as about how this started and my primary intention can also be taken from the corresponding Samsung Thread

for people who asks themself: Linaro, Sabermod, Uber what? here some good info about it: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1C-ehLWl6XcStOmB30QHDA_DOdceXiGIyzXT_0eIg5nQ/edit (thx to @ViditM14 for providing the link!) and finally more infos about Uber Toolchains : https://plus.google.com/+ChetKener/posts/YzMJEkzPQgp and here: https://plus.google.com/communities...3/stream/ac70dec1-dad7-438d-baeb-f8d6644217fd

so without further ado let's go:

First of all the obligatorily Disclaimer:

As also written in the title please note these builds are UNOFFICIAL, are NOT SUPPORTED in any way by Lord Boeffla or myself and might be EVEN UNSTABLE! So take them as they are! As always flash them at your own risk and make a backup before flashing! (yeah take this advice seriously!)

About bugs: Before you report ANY issues with the linaro/uber builds provided here (doesn't matter which one!) FIRST TRY the non-linaro/uber official builds from HERE to see if they will be gone then. if they wont, you can go on and report your problems in the official boeffla kernel thread! I hope you understand that we have to treat and keep these builds here completely separate from official ones as they have in no terms something to do with each other! Not respecting this will force me to stop building further linaro/uber builds of boeffla kernel.

About benchmarks and comparisons between toolchains:
It's common known that linaro (maybe also uber?) builds might give us higher benchmark rates and that seems great for some people (in fact it's pointless per se in my opinion)
so please if you really must, post them ONLY here and NOT in official boeffla kernel thread, thanks!


Now some more precise informations about what's going on here:

what i did:

  • the images are always build with original sources from official boeffla kernel OPO repositories from HERE
    with some not worth to mention minor changes to be able to build it on my build environment with non stock toolchains.
  • all images are compiled from special branches from this forked Boeffla Kernel repository
    with a self compiled Linaro Toolchain 4.9.1-2014.07-1 (source: https://github.com/zanezam/ct-ng_linaro) + recent version of Uber Toolchain 4.9.4 (Credits to Team Uber for the pre-configured/-build toolchains)

all images are build with changes from different branches in following repository:
https://github.com/zanezam/boeffla-kernel-oos-oneplus2

Beside of some additional fixes from my side all changes are taken from repositories of @ak
so all credits to him, and thx again for the starting point! ;)

before someone asks some last words about the used toolchain versions: i did a lot of testing before releasing these builds here
and the used Linaro / Uber versions are the maximum versions which can be used to make working builds with pure boeffla
kernel sources and without changing a lot of code in addition. So if u are able to biuld a kernel and still want to try higher versions i must state here that Linaro versions
above 4.9.1 and Uber verisions above 4.9.4 might produce a "messed up" image which at the end gives you a boot-looping or not booting device and that might even be dangerous, so be aware !!
if someone has a clue what exactly has to be done to use higher versions of the corresponding toolchains (with respecting the original kernel source of course) feel free to let us know,
it will be definitely appreciated!


what i will do:

  • build the source code with linaro/sabermod toolchain and (like Lord Boeffla usually does) provide a CWM image of recent boeffla kernel versions.
  • do a test for about 1 day with this builds and if they work without any big issues, add them here in the thread.
  • i will try to keep the linaro/uber toolchains as up-to-date as possible till the need of bigger code change will be reached.
  • not providing versions that are not released by Lord Boeffla yet.
  • not providing an image if it is not working - well of course not *g* but it will be marked as "canceled" then for info.
  • not change the source code to add/remove features or fix boeffla kernel related bugs.
  • not support the whole stuff here.

what i will maybe do (sooner or later):

  • provide ZZMoove Governor test builds if there are any new versions to test - more infos and discussions about ZZMoove Governor can be found HERE
  • maybe tune the build flags if some more linaro/sabermod/uber experienced dev comes up with "better" ones (feel free to post and let me know, toolchain specialists! *g*)

@ZaneZam do you own our device or are you just optimizing the Lord's builds?

yeah i got one lying in front of me (but not as a daily driver yet) so yes i'm also running these builds :)
i'm doing this only for devices i own, otherwise it wouldn't be possible to provide anything decent

btw guys don't be confused about the "COS" naming in the images that's just a typo and will be gone in next version, sry ;)

New Builds!

Whats the difference between U494 & 1491 ?
Just wanted to be sure before i flash, thanks !!
u494 = Build with Uber toolchain (gcc v4.9.4), l491 = Build with Linaro toolchain (gcc v4.9.1 ) apart from that optimization flags are the same atm. ;)
u can flash any of these on top of offical builds or vice versa settings of boeffla app are preserved. which one is better or IF there are big differences isn't known yet
but let us know if u face any pros or cons with these builds here, thx !

and btw:

builds of...

Boeffla-kernel-1.0-beta2-OOS2xx-OnePlus2

uploaded!

Enjoy!
ZZ

Thanks Zam for your explanation, running the beta2 for few hours now and it looks promising.
Cheers !!

Didn't try but as boeffla kernel uses this as base I can say : Only with v4.9.4 from uber and a self made Linaro 4.9.1. with uber 5.x or 6.x there are errors which I was able to fix (except one ice on latest 6.x but that's a bug in gcc which will be fixed in next toolchain version hopefully) but however the 5.x and 6.x images are not booting at the moment. this needs some special attention or some special knowledge which I don't have atm ;)
