    ROM

    Default Re: Building your own ROM

    OK, so several forum members have now successfully built a working ROM from the IHO repository. So you may be asking yourself, what do I do with all these files, how do I customize it, how do I make the changes I want to make? Here's a good video tutorial by TechTV that can help you get to the next level in building your own ROM.

    Thanks Jerry! A week ago I never even touched Linux before, but your instructions on the third post of this thread walked me through building my own rom, I like simplified instructions, I'm pretty new to any of this still.

    Default Re: Building your own ROM

    Jerry, can you update the 3rd post? It seems like there are some outdated/contradicting info. use '-b gingerbread' or not? There are a lot of good details there that are lacking in the current wiki page to help someone new to build. Or could clean it up a bit and just add it to the wiki too. I'm itching to build my own ROM now, but would like to get a clearer understanding of the steps first.

    Default Re: Building your own ROM

    I'm attempting to build this on a freshly installed Ubuntu 11.04 AMD64 system, 15 minutes into 'make bacon', my last line is:

    make: *** [out/target/common/obj/JAVA_LIBRARIES/framework_intermediates/noproguard.classes-with-local.dex] Killed

    Anyone know what this is? I followed Jerry's post #3 & added all of the components after fresh Ubuntu install. Here's more recent lines from the stdout before the killed part:

    Yes, do use the gingerbread branch. As for your error it looks like you probably ran out of memory.

    Did you ever get past this? I had the same error a couple of times recently, and I ended up deleting the entire source tree, including the hidden .repo file, and then doing a fresh repo init and repo sync. Built fine both times I had that error after fresh syncs. I'm not sure why we both get that same error, are you using the default install of Wubi like I am? If so, Blarf is probably right, since it creates a pathetically small space for Ubuntu to run it.

    I have been getting the same error for a week, I thaugjt it had something to do with me running a 32bit vmware Ubuntu. I thaught I had it fixed when I cleaned up my builds and started completely fresh, but now it freezes up at installing system_network, so I'm guessing something didn't sync right and I will start all over AGAIN. Thanks again for your help jerry

    Another brand-noob guy trying out his first build. I tried setting up my arch linux system to do this, but I was running into trouble finding all the packages necessary ( for example I can't find the libsdl1.2-dev package for arch. Are some of them debian (and/or Ubuntu) specific?)

    So I switched to my new Mint Debian Edition install and got everything in place that I needed (I think).

    When I tried to make my bacon, I got the following, and have no idea how to fix it:

    $ make -j2 bacon

    Hope it isn't something really obvious (and stupid!)... I wonder if some directory isn't in the right place, or...

    I give up. Me and my PC just aren't meant to compile our own rom. Ok I don't give up, but I'm going to take a break. I will try it with debian alater and see if I have any luck

    ROM

    Default Re: Building your own ROM

    Okay. For my purposes at least, this thread has formally been succeeded by two things:

    1.) The wiki entry located here.
    2.) The porting IHO to a different Optimus phone thread on XDA.

    Like the official thread dev threads the move to the wiki is designed to encourage people to develop a single reference where usable build instructions can be found instead of spreading it out through a lengthy forum thread. As usual I'd like to request that any significant changes to the wiki be coordinated with Centinel.

    Damn. I may have missed a step. [blush] I know I did the . build/envsetup.sh, but I don't remember doing "lunch"!

    Sheesh. Noobs, ya know?

    I'll try again tonight... Thanks!

    ps Is your "2" above shorthand for "make -j2 bacon" ??

    There seems to be a problem with main Android repository
    See here

    I would not delete the local repository or try to fix. The error is in the main repository and, it seems to me, we can only wait for it to be fixed.

    This is a horribly newb question, but how is this ROM I just built different from YOUR latest, for example. I notice mine is, like, 80-something megabytes in size...and yours is more like 60MB ...

    Yes, the killed msg & other hangs have been solved after I increased the Wubi Ubuntu default swap space from 256 MB to 2 GB. It's an old machine, so only has 1 GB of RAM, AMD64 3200+ single-core CPU. Build took about 3 hours.

    The main differences from a pure IHO build and BACKside are:

    changed bootanimation
    changed 2nd boot logo
    removed all wallpapers, themes, and large ringtones
    added bootsound support
    added video camera icon
    replaced LatinIME with an english only version (much smaller)

    It's removing the wallpapers, themes, ringtones, and replacing LatinIME that makes my build smaller.
