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.

h4. Java heap space
75
76
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:
77
78
<pre>
79
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
80
</pre>
81
82
The heap size can be "increased with an envirnoment variable":https://stackoverflow.com/a/60474592/1313087:

h4. Reduce parallel jobs to avoid killed processes
89
90
Increasing the Java heap space is not enough to get a successful build on machines with 8 GB or less RAM. It is also necessary to reduce the number of parallel jobs, to avoid processes from being killed due to lack of memory. This typically happens during the build of @frameworks/base@ components.
91
92
For greater speed, you may let your build run with the defaults, wait for it to fail due to killed processes, and then relunch the build with:
93
94
<pre>
95
$ make -j1 bacon
96
</pre>
97
98
By default, "Ninja":https://ninja-build.org/manual.html, the underlaying build system for Android, used when you run @make bacon@, computes the number of parallel jobs according to the number of CPUs on your machine (typically #CPUs + 2 parallel jobs).

110 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
111 268 dl lud
<pre>
112 271 dl lud
$ cd out/target/product/i9305/obj/PACKAGING/target_files_intermediates/lineage_i9305-target_files-eng.<username>/IMAGES
113
$ sudo heimdall flash --BOOT boot.img --USERDATA userdata.img --SYSTEM system.img 
114 268 dl lud
</pre>
115 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
116 266 dl lud
h3. Get adb
117 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
118
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:
119
<pre>
120
$ sudo adb shell
121
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
122
* daemon started successfully
123
i9305:/ #                                 
124 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
$ sudo adb kill-server
125
$ adb shell
126
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
127
* daemon started successfully
128
error: no devices/emulators found
129
</pre>
130
So make sure to kill the adb-server and run it as root:
131
<pre>
132
$ adb kill-server
133
$ sudo adb shell
134
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
135
* daemon started successfully
136
i9305:/ # 
137 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
</pre>
138
139 272 dl lud
h3. Boot progress
140
141
You can also follow the boot progress with adb:
142
<pre>
143
adb logcat
144
adb logcat -b main
145
</pre>
146
147
Note that the device can go into suspend at any time, so adb might be interrupted. That looks like that:
148
First you get a shell
149
<pre>
150
$ sudo adb shell
151
i9305:/ #
152
</pre>
153
154
Then the connection is interrupted:
155
<pre>
156
$ adb shell
157
i9305:/ # [randomdev@fullyfreelaptop ]$                                                                                                     
158
</pre>
159
160
The effect with adb logcat is similar.
161
162 269 dl lud
h3. Getting the latest changes
163
164
* 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.
165
* 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:
166
<pre>
167 279 dl lud
$ rm -rf .repo/manifests .repo/manifests.git .repo/manifest.xml
168 277 dl lud
$ repo init -u https://git.replicant.us/replicant-next/manifest.git -b replicant-10-dev
169 269 dl lud
$ repo sync --force-sync
170
</pre>
171
* 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: 
172
<pre>
173
$ repo sync --force-sync
174
</pre>

h3. Build VM
177 199 Kurtis Hanna
178
If you use Parabola, you may be interested in running Trisquel 8 in LXC.
179
180
To do that first debootstrap a Trisquel 8 rootfs. 
181
182
Parabola's debootstrap does support Trisquel 8 and its manual has an example on how to do that:
183
<pre>
184
$ man debootstrap
185
[...]
186
# debootstrap flidas flidas-root http://archive.trisquel.info/trisquel
187 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
</pre>
188
189 199 Kurtis Hanna
Then you can use virt-manager to setup the LXC instance.
190
191
The advantages of this solution are that:
192
* The LXC guest and host shares their resources (CPU, RAM) with almost no penalty
193
* Trisquel 8 is not a rolling release distribution
194
195 267 dl lud
The disadvantage of this solution are that:
196 199 Kurtis Hanna
* you need to configure the Trisquel 8 LXC instance (vimrc, sshd_config, etc)
197 267 dl lud
* It's more complicated to setup
198 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* The Android build system outputs a warning message about not being able to use namespaces which may become mandatory in newer Android versions
199 272 dl lud
200 278 dl lud
h2. Cleanups to be done
201 272 dl lud
202
* Make adb work as user by using the right USB IDs, and make userspace do the USB setup.
203
* -Make the kernel not use hardcoded CMDLINE_FORCE- Not possible unless the bootloader is changed or Linux is very heavily patched.
204
* Make the kernel not use hardcoded partitions if possible (though we use system as root)
205
* Make a clean Gatekeeper HAL module implementation instead of using the same hack than goldfish
206
* 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
209
210 261 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).
211
* For the patches that are not merged yet, see the "issues of the redmine upstreaming sub-project":https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/upstreaming/issues
212 153 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
213 227 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
h2. Modem status
214
215 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
*libsamsung-ipc:* 
216
* Fully tested under GNU/Linux only
217 235 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* Can initialize completely the modem and receive messages (see the #1954 bug report for the logs)
218 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* Needs more cleanup but there is now a better abstraction
219 229 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
220 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
*libsamsung-ril:* 
221
* Ported to Replicant 9 using a wrapper for the API >=12 in libsamsung-ril source code that needs to be removed
222
* Tested under Replicant 9 without up to date libsamsung-ipc (no modem init)
223
* Tested and validated under Replicant 6 (doesn't break telephony)
224
225
h3. Modem status TODO
226
227 227 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.
228
* 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.
229
* 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.
230
* 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.
231
* 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.
331
* 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 |
350
| hardware/samsung/wifiloader | | Loads the wifi kernel module (like modprobe) and setup firmware filesystems permissions | May be useful |
351
| hardware/samsung/audio | | seems to contains ril related stuff as well | Look if the ril stuff is required, go for standard audio |
352
| hardware/samsung/lineagehw/hidl/livedisplay | | livedisplay is a feature similar to what redshift does on GNU/Linux | Not sure if it works with mainline |
353
| 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 |
354
| all other directories in hardware/samsung/exynos/ | nonfree firmwares, nonfree software?, smdk kernel? | audio/video decoding offload | Avoid using that |
355
| 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 |
