[edit] Using the Prebuilt Release Image

The prebuilt release image can be obtained from here.
After you download the binaries, follow the flashing instruction from "Flashing eMMC image" section.

[edit] Rebuilding Android from Sources

[edit] Build PC setup

You would need a 64bit machine for building Android file system. You must have sudo permissions on the PC for installing packages

The following commands will install the correct packages to your PC:

Ubuntu 10.04

sudo apt-get install git-core flex bison gperf libesd0-dev zip libwxgtk2.6-dev zlib1g-dev build-essential tofrodos x-dev 
sudo apt-get install lib32readline5-dev libstdc++6 lib32z1 lib32z1-dev ia32-libs g++-multilib libx11-dev libncurses5-dev 
sudo apt-get install uboot-mkimage libxml2-utils

Ubuntu 12.04

sudo apt-get install git-core flex bison gperf libesd0-dev zip libwxgtk2.8-dev zlib1g-dev build-essential tofrodos 
sudo apt-get install lib32readline6-dev libstdc++6 lib32z1 lib32z1-dev ia32-libs g++-multilib libx11-dev libncurses5-dev 
sudo apt-get install uboot-mkimage libxml2-utils

For more up to date information on initializing build environment for Android, refer to official Android page here

If you are behind proxy/firewall, workaround it using the instructions in [1]

For installing repo make sure you also export https_proxy environment variable.

export https_proxy=<local_site_proxy_server> eg:
mkdir ~/bin -p
sudo apt-get install curl
curl > ~/bin/repo
chmod a+x ~/bin/repo
export PATH=~/bin:$PATH

If you do not have sudo rights to your machine, contact your System Administrator for assistance.

The Kernel and Driver sources are built using the Android linux-x86 toolchain for ARM GNU/Linux version. This tool chain can be obtained when you pull the Android code based on the released manifest that will be given.

[edit] Build Instructions

[edit] Setting up build environment

From your work directory (5AJ.1.5 folder):

export MYDROID=${YOUR_PATH}/mydroid
export PATH=$PATH:${MYDROID}/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-eabi-4.6/bin/
export CROSS_COMPILE=${MYDROID}/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-eabi-4.6/bin/arm-eabi-

[edit] Building usbboot

This is for creating the emmc boot

cd ${YOUR_PATH}/usbboot
export CROSS_COMPILE=${MYDROID}/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-eabi-4.6/bin/arm-eabi-
make MACH=omap5 BOARD=omap5uevm clean
make MACH=omap5 BOARD=omap5uevm

[edit] Building Kernel

Follow the steps below to build kernel image.

cd ${YOUR_PATH}/kernel/android-3.4
export CROSS_COMPILE=${MYDROID}/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-eabi-4.6/bin/arm-eabi-
make ARCH=arm mrproper
make ARCH=arm android_omap_defconfig
make ARCH=arm uImage modules

[edit] Building Android Filesystem (AFS)

. build/
lunch 25  #(specific lunch target: full_omap5panda-userdebug)
make -j2 clean
make -j2

[edit] Building TI WLAN Drivers

WLAN connection will work only on uEVM with PG2.1 wl8 chip.

OMAP5 Panda boards with model number uEVM5432x-02-01-00 and uEVM5432x-02-11-00 both have the WL1857 ES2.1 on them

export CROSS_COMPILE=${MYDROID}/prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-eabi-4.6/bin/arm-eabi-
export KERNEL_DIR=${YOUR_PATH}/kernel/android-3.4
cd ${MYDROID}/hardware/ti/wlan/mac80211/compat_wl18xx/
make ARCH=arm

[edit] Preparing Android image

[edit] Rebuild Android Filesystem (AFS) to include kernel and connectivity drivers

Copy WLAN kernel modules:

cd $MYDROID/out/target/product/panda5
mkdir -p system/lib/modules; cd system/lib/modules
cp -fp ${MYDROID}/hardware/ti/wlan/mac80211/compat_wl18xx/compat/compat.ko .
cp -fp ${MYDROID}/hardware/ti/wlan/mac80211/compat_wl18xx/net/wireless/cfg80211.ko .
cp -fp ${MYDROID}/hardware/ti/wlan/mac80211/compat_wl18xx/net/mac80211/mac80211.ko .
cp -fp ${MYDROID}/hardware/ti/wlan/mac80211/compat_wl18xx/drivers/net/wireless/ti/wl12xx/wl12xx.ko .
cp -fp ${MYDROID}/hardware/ti/wlan/mac80211/compat_wl18xx/drivers/net/wireless/ti/wl18xx/wl18xx.ko .
cp -fp ${MYDROID}/hardware/ti/wlan/mac80211/compat_wl18xx/drivers/net/wireless/ti/wlcore/wlcore*.ko .

Copy Kernel Image

cp -v ${YOUR_PATH}/kernel/android-3.4/arch/arm/boot/zImage device/ti/panda5/kernel

Rebuild AFS to generate update images

. build/
lunch 25  #(specific lunch target: full_omap5panda-userdebug)
rm out/target/product/panda5/*img
rm out/target/product/panda5/obj/PACKAGING/systemimage_intermediates/system.img
make -j2

[edit] Preparing eMMC binaries/images

mkdir emmc_files
cp -v ${MYDROID}/out/target/product/panda5/*img emmc_files
cp -v ${MYDROID}/device/ti/omap5sevm/boot/ emmc_files
cp -v ${MYDROID}/out/host/linux-x86/bin/{simg2img,make_ext4fs,mkbootimg,fastboot,adb} emmc_files
cp -v ${YOUR_PATH}/kernel/android-3.4/arch/arm/boot/zImage emmc_files/kernel
cp -v ${YOUR_PATH}/usbboot/out/omap5uevm/omap5uevm_GP_ES2.0_MLO emmc_files
cp -v ${YOUR_PATH}/usbboot/out/omap5uevm/usbboot emmc_files

[edit] Flashing eMMC images

This is done using usbboot and fastboot tool. usbboot is used to put the OMAP5 uEVM board in fastboot mode and fastboot is used to flash the images to emmc.

Follow the steps below to flash the binaries to emmc of the board:

(Refer here for DIP switch location)

Required switch settings on the Panda5 board to enable eMMC boot.
    3   2   1   0

1. Connect your USB3 cable from the target to your flashing station, the power supply, 
& the micro usb cable using a terminal or screen 
(for screen the command is: screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200)

2. Make sure the board is powered OFF

3. Start usbbboot in fastboot mode:

      sudo ./usbboot -f
         When running this command you will see: 
         usbboot -f:  starting in fastboot mode
         waiting for device...

4. Power up your board

     From the terminal you should see something similar to this saying the device is in fastboot mode: 
            r1Texas Instruments Inc Bootloader 1.1.0-jenkins-OMAP5_usbboot-102^0
            Build Info: Apr 20 2012 - 05:01:26
            Entering fastboot mode...
   From the command prompt where you ran the usbboot command you should see something similar to this below:
    reading ASIC ID
    CHIP: 5430
    IDEN: cfd7d499ed40beab470795a5cfbc5707807b4b6a
    MPKH: 351edf8f4d739d50f7449a6d3d3d983d6220974836f039c752dae7226bb19955
    CRC0: 06e92275
    CRC1: 3894aaf5
    device is ED/HD (EMU/HS)
    sending 2ndstage to target... f0030002
    waiting for 2ndstage response...
    received 2ndstage response...

5. Run your script
     sudo ./
       This will flash the binaries into the emmc on the Panda board.

6. Now reset the board and let it boot up.
