How to build Android 5.1 for x86_64

May 142016

Dear Visitor,

This post is intended to sum up basic steps to produce own bootable image for Android 5.1 on x86_64 system.

$ mkdir android-x86
$ cd android-x86
$ repo init -u git:// -b lollipop-x86
$ repo sync -c

In the end of synchronization you would have Android tree with all necessary packages needed to build Android 5.1.

To prepare build environment you would need to do:

. build/

Now if you want to construct bootable iso image you would need to run:

make -j4 iso_img TARGET_PRODUCT=android_x86_64

-j4 could be replaced with relevant number of CPUs on your system.

Best regards,

Dear Visitor,

By this post we are starting new company blog regarding Android OS specific tricks.

The first theme is related to network configuration.

Android 4+ static network configuration

First of all set the IP for device and GW:

ifconfig DEV [IP] netmask [NETMASK]
route add default gw [GATEWAY] dev DEV

Next DNS settings:

setprop net.eth0.dns1
setprop net.eth0.dns2

Android 5+ specifics

To be able to reach any external network resource you would need:

ip rule add from all lookup main

 Best regards,
