If this is not the case, create a new virtual volume with case sensitive fs on and mount it. In this post I use the cross arm-eabi- compiler created in the post below. MacPorts has an arm-elf- cross compiler that can be used if you do not want to compile one by yourself.
Search for "arm-elf". With the build infrastructure is in place it is time to configure a kernel. Don't forget to specify architecture and path to cross compiler. This header file is deprecated and not available on Mac.
A GNU alternative to this elf. Because we have the AOSP repo, this is a breeze. Finally, you will boot the image to test it, and finally flash it to make it persistent. At that point, welcome to level 0 of android kernel hacking. Examine the Prebuilt We will start close to the official kernel build guide, but for the Nexus 5 instead of a HiKey.
It will also be from the perspective of already having the AOSP repo checked out. The official guide assumes you have not, and need to check out the kernel repo separately.
The first thing you must do, is check the pre-built kernel binary directory for your device and use git to determine the last commit from the kernel source repository which we will visit soon. Of course, if your intention is to use a different kernel as a starting point, then you are probably way over my head. Name here is the codename for the device, hammerhead for the Nexus 5.
We will check that repo to figure out the commit hash of the kernel source repo that was used to build it. Installing Xcode and other packages Install the Xcode command line tools: xcode-select --install For older versions of macOS Use a virtual machine, as you said yourself. However, the kernel source must be downloaded manually. Reasons to Learn C C is not a hard language to learn, so all the benefits from learning it will come quite cheap. This activity is to be added to the application launcher android. You should try and use that if you can.

Tested Gsi for Redmi Go. Select case sensitive, journaled as the volume format.
This creates a. If you need a larger volume later, you can resize the sparse image with the following command:.
For a disk image named android. After you've mounted the android volume, you do all your work there. You can eject it unmount it just as you would an external drive. On macOS, the default limit on the number of simultaneous open file descriptors is too low and a highly parallel build process may exceed this limit. Your build environment is good to go!

Choosing a branch Some requirements for the build environment are determined by the version of the source code that you plan to compile. Setting up a Linux build environment These instructions apply to all branches, including master. Installing required packages Ubuntu Setting up a macOS build environment In a default installation, macOS runs on a case-preserving but case-insensitive file system.
Creating a case-sensitive disk image You can create a case-sensitive file system within your existing macOS environment using a disk image.
