Kernels are tricky to develop, and you also need some sort of linux distro. You need to know quite a bit of coding in order to create a custom kernel. Building a rom can be as simple as copying and pasting, but can also be quite tricky because you have to logcat every single second of time that you're running the rom. They're actually both pretty advanced. I can do rom building, but kernel building is a bit out of my zone.

im now (sort of) trying to build a CAF kernel using the sources of @Codename13 's github :p

You can just make it linux terminal though. Why use source, and how would you build from source in the first place? I understand you can build Roms from source (so easy), but kernels?! Kernels use only meta-inf so unless you know coding of meta-inf, then it's probably not possible. I believe the only way is by linux terminal.

Yes youre right but the build process does everything you only need to fix (sometimes) some errors more not, just let the terminal do everything :p
and building is possible in linux and mac-os x68

The CAF kernel is not ready yet. And of course the kernel is built from source. Dunno nothing about meta inf! Everything is built from a source even @s7560m :p.

Well, technically speaking, everything is built from source. But did you really read my statement correctly? My statement simply stated that you cannot just edit/modify a pre existing kernel and build from there, as the kernels contain meta-inf files that are probably non-editable. So if you want to try and modify meta-inf, be my guest, but you will either brick your s duos, or the kernel might be corrupted and so it won't be flashable. And lastly, you need access to a linux terminal in order to create a kernel in the first place, as kernels are loosely based on linux, so if you're running windows, it will be quite tricky.

Edit: My mistake, you can edit a kernel if you have the correct sources, but also given the correct sources in the first place :p

Well speaking from whatever I read every word but didn't understand what you want to say. Meta-inf idk where should this be? What you can do is extract the ramdisk and the zimage from the boot.IMG and make changes to the ramdisk. And for your interest I use to build my kernels with Ubuntu 14.04.

I think you mean .so files (lib-files) that are the files you cannot/very very hard compile/open, and those files are builded from meta-inf files etc.

I think I may have worded it wrong, my apologies. I know you build your kernels using a linux distro, considering it is the only way other than cygwin and android kitchen. I'm not trying to cause a fuss or doubt you, and i admit that your kernels are great; if you went from a rom builder to a kernel developer, it will seem impossible. Rom building is as simple as copying and pasting, kernel development consists of various codings. What I meant was that it would be very difficult to transition from a rom builder to a kernel developer, because there is a greater chance of caution (bricking for example). So to make such a transition is going to be difficult. I know a whole lot of linux commands, and I actually use it to hack, but I don't develop kernels because it's out of my interest, although I know how.

Lib files? I have never seen a .so file in a kernel. Lib files don't really correspond with kernel development; the only relation is that they both have to do something with hardware.

I don't speak about kernels but i think you thought that kernel is builded of meta-inf filed but lib files are builded meta-inf and those lib files don't have anything to do with kernels, i only said it because you was wrong and i just said the file that WAS build from meta-inf

Oh sorry then, I must have misunderstood what you previously have said.

    I fixed the sound problem, sound is now working BIG thanks to @Codename13 without his help i won't be fixed this error today :p.
    I upload a new build in an half our.
    I try to fix the camera problem fast and make a new build again :p
    EDIT: I tried the camera but same error:confused:
    I try some other things and i hope it works.

    Is it working on GT-S7560 Trend? I don't need hard brick. Anyone tested it?
