thank razzmataz, here is where I am confused, my latest 64-bit ubuntu 12.04 just does not seem to have oracle or sun as alternative for jdk.

did you install oracle (aka rip sun) manually or via apt ?

what does

update-alternatives --query java

and

dpkg -l '*' | egrep '(java|jdk)' | grep ^ii

look like?

reason to ask is that I wonder why own built ROMs do not work as they should, perhaps my specific java env?

I installed it manually. You can't use the openjdk.

Woah. You're using the CM skate repo. You should not do that.

How can I change that? Changing it in local_manifest.xml doesn't help, it always downloads it from cyanogenmod...

Sorted out.

He used the JellyBean device config. This uses the common msm7x27 config, which wasn't given.

@razzmataz1478

thanks! having used OpenJDK may explain why my own built ROMs did never work reliably, I recall it is in some FAQ to use Sun/Oracle SDK 1.6 (not 1.7), but, since OpenJDK is based upon Sun/Oracle JDK, I let ubuntu 12.04 choose.

I have now manually installed Sun/Oracle SDK 1.6 (+ integrated and set in update alternatives) and just built a ROM which I will soon try.

With my own builds (this time latest cfx cm9), even with sun-oracle

1.6 jdk, I have 'trebuchet launcher' loop stopping, and, next, after

cleaning dalvik, cache and data factory reset, I have 'setup wizzard'

loop stopping.

I am starting to believe skate android building is not meant for me

...

In any case, one can experiment and always recover so it is fun.

My goal is to see DVB-T TV on galaxy s2 in CyanogenMod using VLC one

day, this might be an utopy but still, one can try.

@C3C0

nice catch!

I do have correct ones in ~cm9/vendor/zte/proprietary_vendor_zte/skate/proprietary/lib/egl

(coming from 'git clone git://github.com/tilal6991/proprietary_vendor_zte.git -b ics')

But they are not in the system/lib/egl directory of ~/cm9/out/target/product/skate/cm-9-20120910-UNOFFICIAL-skate.zip

meaning: somehow they did not make it into the ROM zip

(I will look around a bit in the makefiles and build logs how that is possible)

here is a fix for the recipe

% mkdir -p ~/cm9/vendor/zte/

% cd ~/cm9/vendor/zte/

% git clone git://github.com/tilal6991/proprietary_vendor_zte.git -b ics

% ln -s proprietary_vendor_zte/skate # <<-- new because build system looks in vendor/zte/skate

the ROM now has the egl (and perhaps more missing proprietary stuff)

thanks all for help

Or...

% cd ~/cm9/vendor/

% git clone git://github.com/tilal6991/proprietary_vendor_zte.git -b ics zte

This will clone into zte directory - no need for symlink.

I think Ceco had that problem with paranoid. It may be related.

Yes. You need to decompile framework-res and adjust skate related parameters in xml files under values and xml directories

Use framework-res from working ICS rom as a base for config values.

And check your mic during call - this is often problem when porting ICS roms. Other side can't hear you.

This requires config changes in Phone.apk. Again you must decompile and change values.

Just seen a tweet by Dazzozo that says AOSP r4 has broken compiling, sigh.
