Hi there,

 

We want to build an Android system on iMax8 mini, I checked the documents, it's really frustrating that the Android document contained few useful information, I have no idea how to prepare the whole build environment for Android.

 

For example, in the `Android User's Guide' document, it states:

 

```

The i.MX Android release source code consists of three parts:
• 1 - NXP i.MX public source code, which is maintained in the CodeAurora Forum repository.
• 2 - AOSP Android public source code, which is maintained in android.googlesource.com.
• 3 - NXP i.MX Android proprietary source code package, which is maintained in www.NXP.com.
```

 

That's all the info in the doc, nothing else.

 

I know above #2 is standard AOSP code, I was able to get it from Google, as this is a well-known way for most of Android developer.

 

And I know above #3, as I can download it from NXP website.

 

But for #1, how to get it? I visit the link(Code Aurora git repositories ), it contains many many git, how should these git/directories be put under standard AOSP code? And so many git, need I download them one-by-one manually? 

 

To be honest, the document from NXP is really frustrating, it didn't say anything about these at all.

 

Shouldn't NXP provide a clearly-written, and a step-by-step  document for developers, instead of very unclear statement?

 

Thanks
