h4. Getting lastest changes

54
* The repositories are being constantly modified with git push --force as we are trying things out, and don't want to make the commits history look too dirty, so be sure to backup your local changes.
55
* Sometimes the manifest repository is also modified with git push --force. In that case the following commands will loose all the work you did locally but will make the repository consistent with upstream repositories again:
56
<pre>
57
$ rm -rf .repo/manifests/ # This enables me to force push and rebase the manifest repository as well
58
$ repo init -u https://git.replicant.us/replicant-9/manifest.git -b replicant-10-wip
59
$ repo sync --force-sync
60
</pre>
61
* The following command might also be necessary to make the state consistent with upstream repositories again, when the manifest history wasn't rewritten, but it will also loose all the work you did locally: 
62
<pre>

$ repo sync --force-sync

h4. Get adb
71
72
As the device IDs are the ones given by the Linux kernel, they are not in the adb udev rules, so for now it requires to run adb as root:
73
<pre>
74
$ sudo adb shell
75
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
76
* daemon started successfully
77
i9305:/ #

80
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
81
* daemon started successfully
82
error: no devices/emulators found

84
So make sure to kill the adb-server and run it as root:

174
h4. Get adb
175
176 147 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
As the device IDs are the ones given by the Linux kernel, they are not in the adb udev rules, so for now it requires to run adb as root:
177 138 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
<pre>
178 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
$ sudo adb shell
179
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
180
* daemon started successfully
181
i9305:/ #                                 
182
$ sudo adb kill-server
183
$ adb shell
184
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
185
* daemon started successfully
186
error: no devices/emulators found
187
</pre>
188
So make sure to kill the adb-server and run it as root:
189
<pre>
190
$ adb kill-server
191
$ sudo adb shell
192
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
193
* daemon started successfully
194
i9305:/ # 
195
</pre>
196
197
h4. Booting
198
199
At some point during boot, the device goes into suspend, so you will need to press some buttons like the power or volume button to make the boot continue until the graphical interface.
200
201
You can also follow the boot progress with adb:
202
<pre>
203
adb logcat
204
adb logcat -b main
205
</pre>
206
207
Note that the device can go into suspend at any time, so adb might be interrupted. That looks like that:
208
First you get a shell
209
<pre>
210
$ sudo adb shell
211
i9305:/ #
212
</pre>
213
214
Then the connection is interrupted:
215
<pre>
216
$ adb shell
217
i9305:/ # [randomdev@fullyfreelaptop ]$                                                                                                     
218
</pre>
219
220
The effect with adb logcat is similar.
221
222
h3. cleanups to be done
223
224
* Make adb work as user by using the right USB IDs, and make userspace do the USB setup.
225
* -Make the kernel not use hardcoded CMDLINE_FORCE- Not possible unless the bootloader is changed or Linux is very heavily patched.
226
* Make the kernel not use hardcoded partitions if possible (though we use system as root)
227
* Make a clean Gatekeeper HAL module implementation instead of using the same hack than goldfish
228
* look at "init.rc":https://android.googlesource.com/platform/system/core/+/master/init/README.md documentation to see if init.rc can be overriden clearly with the override statement to see if it's possible to keep the serial console patch for -eng
229
230
h3. Using SwiftShader instead of Mesa3D llvmpipe for software rendering
231
232
To use SwifShader you need a kernel that supports UDIV/SDIV emulation, you can checkout the branch GNUtoo/udiv-emulation for kernel/replicant/linux. After doing that that run the following commands to use SwiftShader:
233
234
<pre>
235
$ adb remount
236
$ adb shell
237
i9305:/ # rm vendor/lib/egl/libGLES_mesa.so # or move it somewhere safe meanwhile you test SwiftShader
238
i9305:/ # nano system/build.prop # set ro.hardware.hwcomposer=ranchu and ro.hardware.gralloc=default
239
$ adb reboot
240
</pre>

244
h3. Status with AOSP 9
245
246
* The Galaxy SIII 4G (i9305) boots (with graphics hacks) under AOSP9, without having to import nonfree libraries:
247
** The device boots until the lock screen
248
** The graphics work but are really slow as they have not been optimized
249
** Sometime the display content is corrupted
250
** The touchscreen works
251
* The kernel used is based on Linux 5.0-rc6 and has ~150 Android specific patches on top and some patches for the Galaxy SIII 4G (i9305) on top

265

272

275
</pre>
276
277
h4. Building it
278
279
Once this is done, see the device/putti/i9305/README.md for the build instructions.
280
281
h4. Trisquel 8 LXC
282
283
If you use Parabola, you may be interested in running Trisquel 8 in LXC.
284
285
To do that first debootstrap a Trisquel 8 rootfs. 
286
287
Parabola's debootstrap does support Trisquel 8 and its manual has an example on how to do that:
288
<pre>
289
$ man debootstrap
290
[...]
291
# debootstrap flidas flidas-root http://archive.trisquel.info/trisquel
292
</pre>
293
294
Then you can use virt-manager to setup the LXC instance.
295
296
The advantages of this solution are that:
297
* The LXC guest and host shares their resources (CPU, RAM) with almost no penalty
298
* Trisquel 8 is not a rolling release distribution
299
300
The disadvantage of this solution are that:
301
* you need to configure again the Trisquel 8 LXC instance (vimrc, sshd_config, etc)
302
* It's more complicated to setup
303
* The Android build system output a warning message about not being able to use namespaces which may become mandatory in newer Android versions

307 215 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* "Unbreak 5.2 booting:":https://www.openwall.com/lists/kernel-hardening/2019/06/14/4 This is really tricky as to work with the stock bootloader we'd have to disable the caches and the MMU. We need to look if upstream u-boot would accept something like that. Else we'd need to maintain a stub it.
308 224 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* -"add flash support to galaxy-s3 boards":https://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/linux-arm-kernel/2019-June/660361.html- "Made it in 5.3":https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?h=v5.3&id=4e4dfcb2a425cccc6dd1fb7d46e060cd57999afc

* Can initialize completely the modem and receive messages (see the #1954 bug report for the logs)
321 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* Needs more cleanup but there is now a better abstraction
322 229 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
323 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
*libsamsung-ril:* 
324
* Ported to Replicant 9 using a wrapper for the API >=12 in libsamsung-ril source code that needs to be removed
325
* Tested under Replicant 9 without up to date libsamsung-ipc (no modem init)
326
* Tested and validated under Replicant 6 (doesn't break telephony)
327
328
h3. Modem status TODO
329
330 227 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* Implement the missing part to shut down the modem, close the interfaces and such, in order to need to reboot after each test.
331
* Continue to clean up the libsamsung-ipc and libsamsung-ril patches, test the patches in Replicant 6 when applicable, and merge them in the upstream repositories.
332
* Convert the firmware loading driver to the upstream API and then adapt libsamsung-ipc for that. This should also benefit other devices like the Galaxy SIII 4G, and the Galaxy Note II 4G which probably don't need much more to get their modem supported by upstream Linux.
333
* Cleanup and convert the rest of the drivers to look like the ones for the Nokia N900 and adapt the userspace in libsamsung-ipc, and merge libsamsung-ipc support for that once the kernel API is stable.
334
* Test the code under Replicant 9 when the graphics status will enable to have decent enough speed to do some testing through human interaction.

| -add partial (no modem) support for the Galaxy SIII 4G (i9305) and- factorize the code with i9300 | 14h | * The source code on which the work was based changed from AOSP to an unofficial LineageOS port to a port of i9305 support for AOSP by Joonas to the official LineageOS so it's now supported by default
372
* The work to factorize the code between the i9300 and i9305 still need to be done |

| -create new- update the install and upgrade instructions | -35h- | -Our current install instructions don't scale as we have one copy for each device.-
381
-We also created generic instructions but they tend to be harder to follow[1] than the device specific ones.-
382
-This will be made in a modular format (for instance in LaTeX) that enables to generate per device install instructions without requiring to have multiples copy of the same text.-
383 214 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
-The instructions will need to be able to be modified and compiled on an FSDG compliant distribution.-
384
Mostly done: 
385
* The installation instructions are now generic enough. 
386
* Some long standing TODO were also done along the way like adding backup instructions for the EFS.
387
* The current instructions are still for Replicant 6.0 and will need to be updated for Replicant 9.0 |

* It might be interesting to contact the people doing ports once we have something working well enough.
434
* It is also interesting to look at other attempts to understand if a given device is powerful enough to run Android 9 and what configuration was used to achieve it.
