This is where we store the patches and revision of the v8 repository that we use in the Android port of Titanium Mobile. Build Status

To build V8, you'll need:

  • Android NDK r11c

Build V8 for Android against the NDK:

$ ./ -n /path/to/android-ndk


$ export ANDROID_NDK=/path/to/android-ndk
$ ./

To publish V8 to S3, you'll need s3cmd:

The Whole Shebang

# Apply our patches to v8
git apply 0001-Fix-cross-compilation-for-Android-from-a-Mac.patch
git apply 0002-Create-standalone-static-libs.patch

# Install Android NDK
export ANDROID_NDK=${PWD}/android-ndk-r11c

# Download s3cmd
tar -xzf s3cmd-1.6.0.tar.gz
export PATH=${PWD}/s3cmd-1.6.0

# Configure s3cmd
s3cmd --configure

# build v8 for ARM, and then x86
./ -n /path/to/android-ndk-r11c -j16
./ -n /path/to/android-ndk-r11c -j16 -l ia32

# Generate a tarball to publish
./ -t

# Publish
./ build/release/libv8-

Full usage:

$ ./ -h
Usage: ./ options

This script builds v8 against the Android NDK.
    -h              Show this help message and exit
    -n <ndk_dir>    The path to the Android NDK. Alternatively, you may set the ANDROID_NDK environment variable
    -j <num-cpus>   The number of processors to use in building (passed on to scons)
    -m <mode>       The v8 build mode (release, debug. default: release)
    -t              Build a thirdparty tarball for uploading

Note: This build is designed to work on a 32-bit Linux. If you wish to install it on a 64-bit version, you would need to install 32-bit libraries:

sudo apt-get -y install gcc-multilib g++-multilib
