Recommended Posts

Hi guys i'm lupohirp, the developer behind cm9 for optimus one. recently i received an acer liquid a1 and i want to start kernel develop for this device. i've tried that metod that i can find in relevance thread but unfortunately this doesn't work.

i do this

1) make clean

2)make acer-q8k-a1-dvt_defconfig

and here i have problems like that i haven't x86 config in arch/x86/configs folder. but acer is an arm device so it isn't needed

someone can help me?

You must specify architecture:

make ARCH=arm acer-q8k-a1-dvt_defconfig

then when compiling do

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=<path to your cross compiler>

to make boot.img

./mkbootimg --cmdline "console=null" --base 0x20000000 --pagesize 4096 --ramdisk newramdisk.cpio.gz --kernel zImage -o boot.img
to flash
adb reboot bootloader

fastboot -i 0x0502 flash boot boot.img

fastboot -i 0x0502 reboot

[/code]
