7 267 dl lud
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
45 283 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
By default, the Android 10 build system can only use the prebuilt binaries it ships.
46 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
47 283 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
While having binary toolchains is better for reproducible builds, and that the binaries are free software, this creates a number of issues:
48
* We need to be able to rebuild the binaries, and so far no one did it yet.
49
* Binaries are way harder to trust than source code and not everyone trust Google.
50
51
As GNU/Linux distribution's tools can be rebuilt and are easier to trust, we are using that for now.
52
53
Setting the following envrionment variable allows to use your distribution tools:
54 274 dl lud
<pre>
55
$ export TEMPORARY_DISABLE_PATH_RESTRICTIONS=true
56 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
</pre>
57
58 283 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
Note that setting this variable does not automatically make the build system use only system binaries: if a prebuilt binary exist, it will use it, if not, it will use your system binary.
59
60
Lots of further effort must be put into transitioning to the system binaries and/or creating a scripts that would build all the required tools.

h4. Java heap space
84
85
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:
86
87
<pre>
88
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
89
</pre>
90
91
The heap size can be "increased with an envirnoment variable":https://stackoverflow.com/a/60474592/1313087:

h4. Reduce parallel jobs to avoid killed processes
98
99
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.
100
101
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:
102
103
<pre>
104 281 dl lud
$ make -j1
105 278 dl lud
</pre>
106
107
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
111
112 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
<pre>
113 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
$ source build/envsetup.sh
114
$ lunch lineage_i9305-eng
115 281 dl lud

h3. Install the images
119 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
120 282 dl lud
h4. From scratch
121
122 268 dl lud
<pre>
123 281 dl lud
$ cd out/target/product/i9305
124 271 dl lud
$ sudo heimdall flash --BOOT boot.img --USERDATA userdata.img --SYSTEM system.img 
125 282 dl lud
</pre>
126
127
h4. Update previous installation
128
129
<pre>
130
adb remount
131
adb sync
132 268 dl lud
</pre>
133 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
134 266 dl lud
h3. Get adb
135 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
136
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:
137
<pre>
138
$ sudo adb shell
139
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
140
* daemon started successfully
141
i9305:/ #                                 
142 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
$ sudo adb kill-server
143
$ adb shell
144
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
145
* daemon started successfully
146
error: no devices/emulators found
147
</pre>
148
So make sure to kill the adb-server and run it as root:
149
<pre>
150
$ adb kill-server
151
$ sudo adb shell
152
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
153
* daemon started successfully
154
i9305:/ # 
155 256 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
</pre>
156
157 272 dl lud
h3. Boot progress
158
159
You can also follow the boot progress with adb:
160
<pre>
161
adb logcat
162
adb logcat -b main
163
</pre>
164
165
Note that the device can go into suspend at any time, so adb might be interrupted. That looks like that:
166
First you get a shell
167
<pre>
168
$ sudo adb shell
169
i9305:/ #
170
</pre>
171
172
Then the connection is interrupted:
173
<pre>
174
$ adb shell
175
i9305:/ # [randomdev@fullyfreelaptop ]$                                                                                                     
176
</pre>
177
178
The effect with adb logcat is similar.

h3. Getting the latest changes
181
182
* 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.
183
* 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:
184
<pre>
185 279 dl lud
$ rm -rf .repo/manifests .repo/manifests.git .repo/manifest.xml
186 277 dl lud
$ repo init -u https://git.replicant.us/replicant-next/manifest.git -b replicant-10-dev
187 269 dl lud
$ repo sync --force-sync
188
</pre>
189
* 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: 
190
<pre>
191
$ repo sync --force-sync
192

h3. Build VM
195 199 Kurtis Hanna
196
If you use Parabola, you may be interested in running Trisquel 8 in LXC.
197
198
To do that first debootstrap a Trisquel 8 rootfs. 
199
200
Parabola's debootstrap does support Trisquel 8 and its manual has an example on how to do that:
201
<pre>
202
$ man debootstrap
203
[...]
204
# debootstrap flidas flidas-root http://archive.trisquel.info/trisquel
205 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
</pre>
206
207 199 Kurtis Hanna
Then you can use virt-manager to setup the LXC instance.
208
209
The advantages of this solution are that:
210
* The LXC guest and host shares their resources (CPU, RAM) with almost no penalty
211
* Trisquel 8 is not a rolling release distribution
212
213 267 dl lud
The disadvantage of this solution are that:
214 199 Kurtis Hanna
* you need to configure the Trisquel 8 LXC instance (vimrc, sshd_config, etc)
215 267 dl lud
* It's more complicated to setup
216 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
217 272 dl lud
218 278 dl lud
h2. Cleanups to be done
219 272 dl lud
220
* Make adb work as user by using the right USB IDs, and make userspace do the USB setup.
221
* -Make the kernel not use hardcoded CMDLINE_FORCE- Not possible unless the bootloader is changed or Linux is very heavily patched.
222
* Make the kernel not use hardcoded partitions if possible (though we use system as root)
223
* Make a clean Gatekeeper HAL module implementation instead of using the same hack than goldfish
224
* 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
227
228 261 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).

237 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
*libsamsung-ipc:* 
238
* Fully tested under GNU/Linux only
239 235 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* Can initialize completely the modem and receive messages (see the #1954 bug report for the logs)
240 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* Needs more cleanup but there is now a better abstraction
241 229 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
242 228 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
*libsamsung-ril:* 
243
* Ported to Replicant 9 using a wrapper for the API >=12 in libsamsung-ril source code that needs to be removed
244
* Tested under Replicant 9 without up to date libsamsung-ipc (no modem init)
245
* Tested and validated under Replicant 6 (doesn't break telephony)
246
247
h3. Modem status TODO
248
249 227 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.
250 1 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* 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.
251 227 Denis 'GNUtoo' Carikli
* 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.
252
* 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.
253 284 dl lud
* Test the code under Replicant 10 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.
353
