Build and Installation Instructions
Building the Bootloader, Kernel and Android File System
The final Release RC tag from L25x manifest for the source should be used. Perform a clean build of u-boot, x-loader, kernel and the android file system. Instructions on how to build can also be obtained from Android Wiki
Pre-built binaries from this release can be obtained from Package. Please follow the below instructions to modify the file system to make it work.
DSP binaries package
IMPORTANT: First you need to rename/move a couple of libraries to make them work. The libraries are in /system/lib:
Rename them to something else (e.g. libOMX.TI.AMR.decode.so.bak and libOMX.TI.AMR.encode.so.bak). By default, AMR libraries have been already renamed in available pre-compiled binaries Froyo_Zoom3_RlsL25.INC3.4P3 Package.
If you are booting from NAND then once you have booted your filesystem, on your terminal type the following:
cd /system/lib mv libOMX.TI.AMR.decode.so libOMX.TI.AMR.decode.so.bak mv libOMX.TI.AMR.encode.so libOMX.TI.AMR.encode.so.bak
To access the graphics package - following steps are required
- Send an email to 'firstname.lastname@example.org' requesting access to the OMAP – Mobile Gaming extranet
- You will get an e-mail as a response to your request. Follow instructions in the e-mail to register at TI extranet site
- Go to OMAP Gaming website - https://www-a.ti.com/extranet/cm/product/wtbugaming/wtbuext/general/homepage.shtml and log in with your newly created credentials
- Download the file named: OMAP36xx_Android_SGX_SDK_zoom3_20100506.zip referred as OpenGL®ES Graphics Android SDK for OMAP3630 Zoom3 Development platform Supports OpenGLES v1.1 OpenGLES 2.0 and OpenVG 1.1 on the web-page. Please note you will need to accept the licensing terms before downloading the package.
- Copy to Linux PC, after unzipping the package you should get Linux installer with the file name OMAP36xx_Android_SGX_SDK_zoom3-188.8.131.5266.bin
- You may need to give execute permission with below command $ chmod +x OMAP36xx_Android_SGX_SDK_zoom3-184.108.40.20666.bin
- Now run this installer $ ./OMAP36xx_Android_SGX_SDK_zoom3-220.127.116.1166.bin
- Read the license terms and accept them to install the graphics SDK on to your system. After successful installation you will get a directory with name OMAP36xx_GFX_Android_SDK in a given path. Refer the readme.txt file in this package for using the SDK.
