Dear All,
Please help, as am new to android porting,

Am not sure of the follwoing:

1) I didn't follow the below step as specified in section 2.1 Get Android Source Code (Android/Kernel/uboot)

cp /opt/imx-android-r10.2/code/r10.2/default.xml .repo/manifests/default.xml

Is the above step is mandatory to follow because this was not specified in & am so concerned whether this step is really required while applying at later stages of i.MX patches

could you please confirm whether the above step is really required because without performing the above step i downloaded android sourcecode from google repo is there any harm further without performing the above step?


2) I am facing below problem when am applying i.MX Android patches as specified in i.MX Android R10.2 User Guide in section 2.2 Patch Code for i.MX & when i executed the follwoing commands,

$ . /opt/imx-android-r10.2/code/r10.2/
$ help

I was not able to see "c_patch" function, could you please let me know the appropriate steps of how to install this "c_patch"

As specified in as specified in in section 2.2 Patch Code for i.MX, how to install in advance the patch script ( utilizes some basic utilities like awk/sed. as it is not available on my LinuxPC

The below is the problem when i started applying i.MX patches:
