How to create the Development Environment and download the Source Code

Regarding the development environment, you need to first make sure to comply with the AOSP requirements. Note that it requires a 64-bit version of Linux. In this regard, follow the instructions at this link:

Building Lollipop version or above only requires to have OpenJDK v7.

~$ sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk

In addition to the AOSP requirements, the following packages are needed to build NXP components:

~$ sudo apt-get install uuid uuid-dev zip lzop gperf zlib1g-dev \
liblz-dev liblzo2-2 liblzo2-dev u-boot-tools lib32z1 flex git-core \
curl mtd-utils android-tools-fsutils

Next step is downloading the source code. To do so you need the repo tool which has been developed specifically for Android in order to manage the hundreds of Git repositories this project contains.

~$ cd ~
~$ mkdir Android_UDOO
~$ mkdir bin
~$ curl > ~/bin/repo
~$ chmod a+x ~/bin/repo
~$ cd Android_UDOO
~$ ~/bin/repo init -u -b android-5.1.1
~$ ~/bin/repo sync

The last command loads the most needed repos. Therefore, it can take several hours to load.

Build instructions

~$ cd Android_UDOO
~$ source build/
~$ lunch udooneo_6sx-eng
~$ make -jN

where N is the number of available CPU cores of your building machine. This last command could take several hours.

Last but not least

This is an alpha version, so be patient if something needs to be tweaked up a bit.
We’ve opened a topic in the forum, so to gather all your concerns and issues.

Happy testing guys!
