Hello NXP Community,

I am trying to create the image of Android Q10.0.0_1.0.0 for IMX8M development kit.

I am new to this kind of stuff, but eager to learn.

Flashing the prebuilt image of Q10.0.0_1.0.0 works.

But I cannot get to build the image from source code.

I followed the steps mentioned in the Android User Guide.

It fails with the error:

...

[100% 157/157] out/soong/.bootstrap/bin/soong_build out/soong/build.ninja

FAILED: out/soong/build.ninja
out/soong/.bootstrap/bin/soong_build -t -l out/.module_paths/Android.bp.list -b out/soong -n out -d out/soong/build.ninja.d -globFile out/soong/.bootstrap/build-globs.ninja -o out/soong/build.ninja Android.bp
Killed
11:20:38 soong bootstrap failed with: exit status 1
ninja: build stopped: subcommand failed.

Some of warnings I also received:

1) "make[1]: warning: jobserver unavailable: using -j1.  Add '+' to parent make rule."

2) "WARNING '/home/mihai-gisca/Projects/1370/sources/Q10.0.0_1.0.0/android_build/vendor/nxp-opensource/uboot-imx/lpddr4_pmu_train_1d_imem.bin' not found, resulting binary is not-functional"

I found this file not in .../uboot-imx folder, but in .../imx-mkimage/iMX8M.

3) "Warning (unit_address_vs_reg): Node /images/uboot@1 has a unit name, but no reg property
Warning (unit_address_vs_reg): Node /images/fdt@1 has a unit name, but no reg property
Warning (unit_address_vs_reg): Node /images/atf@1 has a unit name, but no reg property
Warning (unit_address_vs_reg): Node /configurations/config@1 has a unit name, but no reg property"

4) "Android GCC has been deprecated in favor of Clang, and will be removed from
Android in 2020-01 as per the deprecation plan in:
https://android.googlesource.com/platform/prebuilts/clang/host/linux-x86/+/master/GCC_4_9_DEPRECATION.md"

The Android User Guide specifies that the GCC is deprecated and Clang has to be used. But I do not know how to

do it.

and other warnings.

OS: Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS x64 as guest OS

Appreciate your efforts.

Best regards,

Hello there!

Thank you for feedback.

Well, my problem was actually solved by adding more RAM.

I am aware that for building images from source code, a minimum of 16 GB of RAM/swap is required (as per documentation).

With my environment, I could only assign 5 GB of RAM to the VM. After some HW changes, I was able to assign 9 GB of RAM

to the VM and the image has been built without errors.

I have another question though. Is it the right way of executing the flashing using the command:

sudo ./uuu uuu_imx_android_flash.sh -f imx8mm -a -e -d mipi-panel

The thing is I receive the following error:

sudo: ./uuu: command not found

Best regards,

Mihai Gîsca

Hello again.

The problem with the command was that it did not have the execution permission.

I now face the following error when executing the command and turning on the

board in sdp mode:

1:1      1/ 2 [Can find validate IVT header          ] SDP: boot -f "./uuu_imx_a

Any ideas?

Best regards,

Mihai
