vpu_fw_imx6d.bin

When I build Android I get an error stating:

 

"ninja: error: 'vendor/nxp/linux_firmware-imx/firmware/vpu/vpu_fw_imx6d.bin', needed by out/target/product/sabresd_6dq/vendor/lib/firmware/vpu/vpu_fw_imx6d.bin', missing and no known rule to make it."

 

I am attempting to build Android from source for imx6q on a saber sd board. I have not made any mods to the android or the board. Everything is stock. I am using Ubuntu.

 

I have searched for solutions. On the yocto project the vpu firmware is proprietary and is downloaded after agreeing to license. I tried to download yocto but 'repo sync' fails due to timeout. I never get the point where I can build it to get to the license prompt.

 

I really don't need the vpu for my project. I am investigating how to remove it from the Android build. I am a novice at building Android.
