This short guide assumes you're on Ubuntu 11.04
First, we need to create directories for the build:
$ mkdir -p ~/bin $ mkdir -p ~/android/system
Now we'll need repo. Let's download it and make it executable:
$ curl https://dl-ssl.google.com/dl/googlesource/git-repo/repo > ~/bin/repo $ chmod a+x ~/bin/repo
Log out and back in so the changes take effect.
Now initialized the repository and pull the source (with my repos attached):
$ cd ~/android/system/ $ repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b gingerbread $ repo sync -j16
Depending on your connection, this might take awhile.
We need Makefiles and other stuff for the device. Take it from the repository
$ cd ~/android/system/devices/huawei/ $ git clone git://github.com/supertoast/android_device_huawei_u8510.git u8510
or download the tarball https://github.com/supertoast/android_device_huawei_u8510/tarball/master and extract it to ~/android/system/devices/huawei/ and name the new directory u8510
We will need to reuse some proprietary files from the stock ROM:
$ cd $ cd ~/android/system/device/huawei/u8510/ $ ./extract-files.sh
Once thats done you can start compiling.
Follow the aosp instructions on setting up the build environment. - http://source.android.com/source/download.html
When the environment is setup, we need to grab a copy of Koush's ROM Manager. This is necessary to build CM7.
$ cd $ ~/android/system/vendor/cyanogen/get-rommanager
Now, we build:
$ cd ~/android/system $ . build/envsetup.sh && brunch cyanogen_u8510-eng
If the build was successful, you can now take the update zip found in out/target/product/u8510/ and flash using a custom recovery. Make sure to grab the latest Gapps to complete the experience.
Before you syncing to the latest CM src remove the changes in vendor/cyanogen that was made from the script setup-makefiles.sh.
$ cd ~/android/system/vendor/cyanogen $ git reset --hard HEAD
When you want to rebuild with new changes or after syncing to the latest CM src make sure to do the following before you recompile.
make clean clobber
