The basic features working on Replicant 9 have been confirmed to work on Replicant 10, but not everything has been tested yet on either version. Replicant 9 source code and build instruction have been kept to do regression tracking: [[DeprecatedPortingToAndroid9|Porting Replicant to Android 9]].

h4. Allow system binaries for building
44
45
By default, the Android 10 build system can only use the prebuilt binaries it ships. However, in Replicant's path to freedom, we would like to use the system binaries instead. Setting the following envrionment variable allows that:
46
47
<pre>
48
$ export TEMPORARY_DISABLE_PATH_RESTRICTIONS=true
49
</pre>
50
51
Note that setting this variable does not automatically make the build system use the system binaries, it just allows it. Prebuilts are still being used now. Lots of further effort must be put into transitioning to the system binaries.

The Java heap size is automatically set according to the available system memory. On machines with 8 GB or less RAM, it is set to a value which is too low, and will result in the following error during the build:

115 266 dl lud
h3. Get adb
116 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
117
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:
118
<pre>
119
$ sudo adb shell
120
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
121
* daemon started successfully
122
i9305:/ #                                 
123 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
$ sudo adb kill-server
124
$ adb shell
125
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
126
* daemon started successfully
127
error: no devices/emulators found
128
</pre>
129
So make sure to kill the adb-server and run it as root:
130
<pre>
131
$ adb kill-server
132
$ sudo adb shell
133
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
134
* daemon started successfully
135
i9305:/ # 
136 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
</pre>
137
138 272 dl lud
h3. Boot progress
139
140
You can also follow the boot progress with adb:
141
<pre>
142
adb logcat
143
adb logcat -b main
144
</pre>
145
146
Note that the device can go into suspend at any time, so adb might be interrupted. That looks like that:
147
First you get a shell
148
<pre>
149
$ sudo adb shell
150
i9305:/ #
151
</pre>
152
153
Then the connection is interrupted:
154
<pre>
155
$ adb shell
156
i9305:/ # [randomdev@fullyfreelaptop ]$                                                                                                     
157
</pre>
158
159
The effect with adb logcat is similar.

h3. Getting the latest changes
162
163
* 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.
164
* 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:
165
<pre>
166
$ rm -rf .repo/manifests/ # This enables me to force push and rebase the manifest repository as well
167
$ repo init -u https://git.replicant.us/replicant-9/manifest.git -b replicant-10-dev
168
$ repo sync --force-sync
169
</pre>
170
* 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: 
171
<pre>
172
$ repo sync --force-sync
173

h3. Build VM
176 199 Kurtis Hanna
177
If you use Parabola, you may be interested in running Trisquel 8 in LXC.
178
179
To do that first debootstrap a Trisquel 8 rootfs. 
180
181
Parabola's debootstrap does support Trisquel 8 and its manual has an example on how to do that:
182
<pre>
183
$ man debootstrap
184
[...]
185
# debootstrap flidas flidas-root http://archive.trisquel.info/trisquel
186
</pre>
187 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
188
Then you can use virt-manager to setup the LXC instance.
189 199 Kurtis Hanna
190
The advantages of this solution are that:
191
* The LXC guest and host shares their resources (CPU, RAM) with almost no penalty
192
* Trisquel 8 is not a rolling release distribution
193
194
The disadvantage of this solution are that:
195 267 dl lud
* you need to configure the Trisquel 8 LXC instance (vimrc, sshd_config, etc)
196 199 Kurtis Hanna
* It's more complicated to setup
197 267 dl lud
* The Android build system outputs a warning message about not being able to use namespaces which may become mandatory in newer Android versions
198 272 dl lud
199
h2. cleanups to be done
200
201
* Make adb work as user by using the right USB IDs, and make userspace do the USB setup.
202
* -Make the kernel not use hardcoded CMDLINE_FORCE- Not possible unless the bootloader is changed or Linux is very heavily patched.
203
* Make the kernel not use hardcoded partitions if possible (though we use system as root)
204
* Make a clean Gatekeeper HAL module implementation instead of using the same hack than goldfish
205
* 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

h2. Upstreaming status
208
209 261 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* The stock bootloader is incompatible with Linux, see [[BootloadersIncompatibleWithLinux#Devices-with-the-Exynos-4412]] for more information. So we maintain patches to enable the Galaxy SIII, and Galaxy Note II to boot with the stock bootloader. In the long run we need to look into using u-boot in the kernel partition as using u-boot instead of the stock bootloader currently require nonfree and non-redistributable software (BL1).
210
* For the patches that are not merged yet, see the "issues of the redmine upstreaming sub-project":https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/upstreaming/issues
211 153 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
212 227 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
h2. Modem status
213
214 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
*libsamsung-ipc:* 
215
* Fully tested under GNU/Linux only
216 235 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* Can initialize completely the modem and receive messages (see the #1954 bug report for the logs)
217 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* Needs more cleanup but there is now a better abstraction
218 229 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
219 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
*libsamsung-ril:* 
220
* Ported to Replicant 9 using a wrapper for the API >=12 in libsamsung-ril source code that needs to be removed
221
* Tested under Replicant 9 without up to date libsamsung-ipc (no modem init)
222
* Tested and validated under Replicant 6 (doesn't break telephony)
223
224
h3. Modem status TODO
225
226 227 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.
227
* 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.
228
* 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.
229
* 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.
230
* Test the code under Replicant 9 when the graphics status will enable to have decent enough speed to do some testing through human interaction.

* It might be interesting to contact the people doing ports once we have something working well enough.
330
* 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.

lineage-16.0 branch | hardware/samsung/macloader | | Loads the MAC Address of the WiFi network interface | Might be useful |
349
| hardware/samsung/wifiloader | | Loads the wifi kernel module (like modprobe) and setup firmware filesystems permissions | May be useful |
350
| hardware/samsung/audio | | seems to contains ril related stuff as well | Look if the ril stuff is required, go for standard audio |
351
| hardware/samsung/lineagehw/hidl/livedisplay | | livedisplay is a feature similar to what redshift does on GNU/Linux | Not sure if it works with mainline |
352
| hardware/samsung/exynos/multimedia/utils/ | seem meant for audio/video decoding offload | assembly obtimized color conversion and resize code | check assembly code license, not sure if useful |
353
| all other directories in hardware/samsung/exynos/ | nonfree firmwares, nonfree software?, smdk kernel? | audio/video decoding offload | Avoid using that |
354
| hardware/samsung/exynos3 |/2. nonfree firmwares?, nonfree software?, smdk kernel? |/2. some light libraries, display stuff (gralloc, etc), 2D acceleration (FIMG), camera (FIMC), 3D acceleration, etc |/2. Avoid using that for now |
