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]].

43 274 dl lud
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.

$ rm python && ln -s /usr/bin/python python

74 270 dl lud
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:
83

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>
95 281 dl lud
$ make -j1
96 278 dl lud
</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).

h3. Launching the build
102
103 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
<pre>
104 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
$ source build/envsetup.sh
105
$ lunch lineage_i9305-eng

h3. Install the images
110 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
111 282 dl lud
h4. From scratch
112
113 268 dl lud
<pre>
114 281 dl lud
$ cd out/target/product/i9305
115 271 dl lud
$ sudo heimdall flash --BOOT boot.img --USERDATA userdata.img --SYSTEM system.img 
116 282 dl lud
</pre>
117
118
h4. Update previous installation
119
120
<pre>
121
adb remount
122
adb sync
123 268 dl lud
</pre>
124 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
125 266 dl lud
h3. Get adb
126 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
127
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:
128
<pre>
129
$ sudo adb shell
130
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
131
* daemon started successfully
132
i9305:/ #                                 
133 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
$ sudo adb kill-server
134
$ adb shell
135
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
136
* daemon started successfully
137
error: no devices/emulators found
138
</pre>
139
So make sure to kill the adb-server and run it as root:
140
<pre>
141
$ adb kill-server
142
$ sudo adb shell
143
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
144
* daemon started successfully
145
i9305:/ # 
146 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
</pre>
147
148 272 dl lud
h3. Boot progress
149
150
You can also follow the boot progress with adb:
151
<pre>
152
adb logcat
153
adb logcat -b main
154
</pre>
155
156
Note that the device can go into suspend at any time, so adb might be interrupted. That looks like that:
157
First you get a shell
158
<pre>
159
$ sudo adb shell
160
i9305:/ #
161
</pre>
162
163
Then the connection is interrupted:
164
<pre>
165
$ adb shell
166
i9305:/ # [randomdev@fullyfreelaptop ]$                                                                                                     
167
</pre>
168
169
The effect with adb logcat is similar.

h3. Getting the latest changes
172
173
* 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.
174
* 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:
175
<pre>
176 279 dl lud
$ rm -rf .repo/manifests .repo/manifests.git .repo/manifest.xml
177 277 dl lud
$ repo init -u https://git.replicant.us/replicant-next/manifest.git -b replicant-10-dev
178 269 dl lud
$ repo sync --force-sync
179
</pre>
180
* 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: 
181
<pre>
182
$ repo sync --force-sync
183
</pre>

h3. Build VM
186 199 Kurtis Hanna
187
If you use Parabola, you may be interested in running Trisquel 8 in LXC.
188
189
To do that first debootstrap a Trisquel 8 rootfs. 
190
191
Parabola's debootstrap does support Trisquel 8 and its manual has an example on how to do that:
192
<pre>
193
$ man debootstrap
194
[...]
195
# debootstrap flidas flidas-root http://archive.trisquel.info/trisquel
196 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
</pre>
197
198 199 Kurtis Hanna
Then you can use virt-manager to setup the LXC instance.
199
200
The advantages of this solution are that:
201
* The LXC guest and host shares their resources (CPU, RAM) with almost no penalty
202
* Trisquel 8 is not a rolling release distribution
203
204 267 dl lud
The disadvantage of this solution are that:
205 199 Kurtis Hanna
* you need to configure the Trisquel 8 LXC instance (vimrc, sshd_config, etc)
206 267 dl lud
* It's more complicated to setup
207 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
208 272 dl lud
209 278 dl lud
h2. Cleanups to be done
210 272 dl lud
211
* Make adb work as user by using the right USB IDs, and make userspace do the USB setup.
212
* -Make the kernel not use hardcoded CMDLINE_FORCE- Not possible unless the bootloader is changed or Linux is very heavily patched.
213
* Make the kernel not use hardcoded partitions if possible (though we use system as root)
214
* Make a clean Gatekeeper HAL module implementation instead of using the same hack than goldfish
215
* 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

217 153 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
h2. Upstreaming status
218
219 261 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).
220
* For the patches that are not merged yet, see the "issues of the redmine upstreaming sub-project":https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/upstreaming/issues
221 153 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
222 227 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
h2. Modem status
223
224 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
*libsamsung-ipc:* 
225
* Fully tested under GNU/Linux only
226 235 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* Can initialize completely the modem and receive messages (see the #1954 bug report for the logs)
227 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* Needs more cleanup but there is now a better abstraction
228 229 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
229 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
*libsamsung-ril:* 
230
* Ported to Replicant 9 using a wrapper for the API >=12 in libsamsung-ril source code that needs to be removed
231
* Tested under Replicant 9 without up to date libsamsung-ipc (no modem init)
232
* Tested and validated under Replicant 6 (doesn't break telephony)
233
234
h3. Modem status TODO
235
236 227 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.
237
* 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.
238
* 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.
239
* 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.
240
* Test the code under Replicant 9 when the graphics status will enable to have decent enough speed to do some testing through human interaction.

lineage-16.0 branch | hardware/samsung/macloader | | Loads the MAC Address of the WiFi network interface | Might be useful |
359
| hardware/samsung/wifiloader | | Loads the wifi kernel module (like modprobe) and setup firmware filesystems permissions | May be useful |
360
| hardware/samsung/audio | | seems to contains ril related stuff as well | Look if the ril stuff is required, go for standard audio |
361
| hardware/samsung/lineagehw/hidl/livedisplay | | livedisplay is a feature similar to what redshift does on GNU/Linux | Not sure if it works with mainline |
362
| 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 |
363
| all other directories in hardware/samsung/exynos/ | nonfree firmwares, nonfree software?, smdk kernel? | audio/video decoding offload | Avoid using that |
364
| 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 |
