h1. Porting Replicant to Android 9

h2. Status

* The Galaxy SIII 4G (i9305) boots (with graphics hacks) under AOSP9, without having to import nonfree libraries. Not much has been validated beside that.
* 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

h2. Repositories and changes

* git://git.putti.eu/aosp/manifest_i9305.git
* git://git.putti.eu/aosp/kernel_i9305.git
* git://git.putti.eu/aosp/device_i9305.git

h2. Building

First get the source code:
<pre>
$ repo init -u git://git.putti.eu/aosp/manifest_i9305.git -b android-9.0.0
</pre>

For Trisquel8 (WIP):
<pre>
sudo apt-get install git-core gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential zip curl zlib1g-dev gcc-multilib g++-multilib libc6-dev-i386 lib32ncurses5-dev x11proto-core-dev libx11-dev lib32z-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libxml2-utils xsltproc unzip bc python-mako
</pre>

Then see the device/putti/i9305/README.md for the build instructions.

h2. TODO

|_. Task |_. Time estimation |_. Comments |
| -Boot a device under AOSP9- | DONE | Only boots with graphics, not much more |
| Build it under a "FSDG compliant distribution":https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-distros.html like Trisquel8 | 8h | It's difficult to do precise time estimations as it could work out of the box or require one full time month of work depending on how much issues are encountered |
| Port the changes from AOSP9 to LineageOS 16 | | |
| Find and remove proprietary software in LineageOS 16 | | |
| Find and remove privacy issues in LineageOS 16 | | |
| Cleanup the device code, build the kernel from within Replicant | | |
| Add support for Audio | | |
| Port the sensors libraries and other device specific libraries | | |
| Add support for the i9300 and factorize the code with i9305 | | |
| Add support for the i9300 modem, touch keys, and flash led | | |
| Add internal WiFi and external WiFi dongles support | | |
| Make the modem driver and libsamsung-ipc work together | | |
| Port libsamsung-ipc and libsamsung-ril to Android 9| | |
| Rebrand LineageOS as Replicant | | |
| Create a recovery | | |
| Create install and upgrade instructions | | |
| Reduce the attack surface | | |
| Add in-system upgrades | |

Add support for smartphones that were supported in Replicant 4.2 and 6.0 if they meet the [[HardwareRequirements]]:
|_. Device |_. Time estimation |_. Comments |
| Galaxy Note II (N7100) | |/2. | Similar to the Galaxy SIII (I9300) |
| Galaxy Note 8.0 (N5100) and 8.0 WiFi (N5110)| (N7000) | | |
| Galaxy S II (i9100) Nexus (I9250) | | linux: devboard dts upstream? unknown status |
| Galaxy Note (N7000) S II (i9100) | | unknown linux upstream status |
| Galaxy Nexus (I9250) Note 8.0 (N5100) and 8.0 WiFi (N5110)| | |/2. OMAP4, no dts upsrteam |
| Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (P3100), 7.0 WiFi (P3110), 10.1 (P5100), 10.1 WiFi (P5110) | | |
| GTA04 >= A4 | | TODO: a RIL needs to be written, userspace GPS support is missing, audio scenarios, etc |
