    Proprietary Drivers Extractor for Windows

    Okay, so you're trying to build Android from source in a Cloud VM? Well, here's the thing. You need all the OEM-specific drivers. Google CAN'T distribute those. So do you give up? NO. As long as you have at least FTP access to your CloudVM you can upload the drivers to your build directory.

    So that led me to the thought, that why can't I manually adb pull the files needed? Well, there is 125 files that gets pulled. That is a no-go. Now, I had an even better idea. Why not create a script to do the hard work?

    And, voila. It took 15 minutes at most to complete a simple script for Windows.

    Either way here are your download links:

    No one actually cares about this. Feelings are hurt.

    I'm not allowed to post in the dev section of XDA since I'm still on "noob status" on those forums. I think I need 50 posts or something like that. Either way, I doubt I'll reach that anytime soon, since I hate that place.

    Nice work, thenameisnigel!
    I'm going to test it soon!
    But by looking at the code, it doesn't seem very "generic"!
    For example, if we have a different wifi chip other than bcm4330, it will not extract any wifi drivers...
    Isn't there a better way of detecting the non-Google-native files in the system folders and extract them?
    For example looking at time stamps, vendor information inside binary files or some configuration files?
    That would be really useful!

    Will do! I'll try to get the script updated soon.
