Galaxy Note 2 (N7100) Build

This explains how to build Replicant for the Galaxy Note 2 (N7100).


Before building, you must make sure that:


Do not build as root, always build as user.


First, the toolchain needs to be built:


If you have executed any of the commands below and you want to run the toolchain build again, you will need to open a new shell.

Then, prepare the shell environment for the Replicant build:

. build/
lunch replicant_n7100-userdebug

Start the build:

parallel_tasks=$(echo "$(grep 'processor' /proc/cpuinfo | wc -l ) + 1" | bc)
make -j$parallel_tasks bacon

The -jn argument is to indicate the number of parallel tasks during the build.
You can remove it from the command line to have only one task at a time. With fast hardware, best results will come with -j9, -j16 and -j32.

Finally, sign the resulting images:

./vendor/replicant/sign-build n7100

The first time you run the script, it will ask you a few questions that are needed to generate the necessary signing keys.

Output files

The produced files are located at:
  • built target images: out/dist/n7100/
  • built host tools: out/host/linux-x86/bin/
