Freescale iMX51_R92_Android OS X build

10 Jan

It is confirmed that the Freescale iMX51_R92_Android_source_code package can be unpacked and installed for development under OS X 10.6.5 & 10.6.6 this includes the capability to correctly patch the local Kernel/Android and boot-loader GIT repositories.
However downloading must be accomplished using Firefox, the use of SAFARI corrupts the down-loaded file(This may actually be an issue with the Freescale host).

Secondly: It is CRITICAL that the packages be processed on OS X inside a disk image that has been configured with the format set as:Mac OS Extended (Case-sensitive, Journaled)
The space allocated to the image will need to be about 8Gb (a 13Gb sparse disk image appears to work correctly)

Thirdly: The various utilities including GIT must obviously be installed beforehand.

    where can i find this code? has it been uploaded anywhere? I just ordered Apad IMX515 , and I will look into creating some custom roms for it (port cyanogenmod). I already have some experience porting to phone.
