OESF Portables Forum _ Gemini PDA - Android _ Compiling Oreo kernel for rooted WIFi model

Posted by: Kero Jul 7 2019, 02:31 AM

On Android 7, I think non-rooted, I had this working

Did a `git fetch` on https://github.com/dguidipc/gemini-android-kernel-3.18
Checked out the Gemini_WIFI branch
did a `make oldconfig` which had two questions only.

Repacking and flashing `root_boot.img` so far resulted in an infinite boot loop.

What I do not know:
- Where is the Planets `.config` for Oreo? I may be starting from a non-bootable starting point and fail forever
- There is an ID in the boot configuration, but `abootimg` is not meant to set it to the value that Planets put in. I have no idea whether this is relevant.
- How is my image "rooted"? Is that something in the kernel? ramdisk? other partition?
