Android 6.0 marshmallow on DragonBoard 410c


#1

Hi, All

Since the DragonBoard 410c is officially supported by Qualcomm,
will Qualcomm release the Android 6.0 codebase for DragonBoard 410c???

I have some features want to test, but it needs Android 6 .0 codebase.

I have checked the below site, it seems the 6.0 codebase for 8x16 is on-going.
https://www.codeaurora.org/xwiki/bin/QAEP/release

If anyone knows the information, please don’t hesitate to answer me.

Hi,

According to Qualcomm, Android M source would potentially be available by March 2016.

Hi Ramesh,

I have followed this link to download and build AOSP for dragonboard 410c. It could be downloaded and built sucessfully but there is an error about display as follows.

dmesg will output the following error

It seems that I could not build system.img correctly. Do you know how to fix it?

Please refer to the following guide: https://developer.qualcomm.com/download/db410c/linux-android-software-build-and-installation-guide.pdf

Sync the LA.BR.1.2.7-01010-8x16.0-4 manifest

Use the following BSP: https://developer.qualcomm.com/download/db410c/android_board_support_package_vla.br_.1.2.7-01010-8x16.0-4.zip

Hello,

  I have downloaded the source from code aurora and the board support packages from qualcomm. After compilation of images and flashing, com.android.phone process fails. Below is a portion of my logs from logcat:-

If this issue is regarding telephony services, is there a way to disable it or any suggestion regarding this issue ?

Thanks,

#11

+1 We’re also experiencing this problem. Wondering how to remove the phone component from Android… since we don’t need it. thanks.


#12

Hello,

I have made the following changes to disable phone component and it works properly:-

in build/target/product/telephony.mk
PRODUCT_PACKAGES :=
#CarrierConfig
#Dialer
#CallLogBackup
#rild

          PRODUCT_COPY_FILES := \

in build/target/product/core.mk
comment Telecom and Teleservice

in device/qcom/msm8916_64/system.prop
change ro.telephony.default_network=0
telephony.lteOnCdmaDevice=0

in vendor/qcom/proprietary/common/config/device-vendor.mk
#PRODUCT_PACKAGES += $(QTI_TELEPHONY_FWK)
#PRODUCT_PACKAGES += $(TELEPHONY_APPS)
#PRODUCT_PACKAGES += $(QTI_TELEPHONY_FWK)
#PRODUCT_PACKAGES += $(QTI_TELEPHONY_RES)
#PRODUCT_PACKAGES_DEBUG += $(TELEPHONY_APPS_DBG)

Let me know in case of further issues.
Thanks


#13

Thanks Arun, this seems to have done the trick. I think I still see errors in logcat but I’m going to ignore it. But your instructions are great, I think I can figure out how to do it myself for other modules now. Thanks a lot!


#14

Hi All,

If I need phone component, how could I fixed this issue?
I am trying to porting RIL with Quectel EC20 modem, but phone always died, OS can’t recognize SIM and can’t use phone function.
Could anyone know how to fixed it?

Thanks so much.
Johnny


#15

Thank you, Arun for posting a workaround. Instead of disabling RIL entirely, the error can be fixed with a commit from CyanogenMod, which causes the telephony service not to fail if Qualcomm’s proprietary extended telephony framework is not present: https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_packages_services_Telephony/commit/9827225f3a4cb25060a72fe0abd27a69906c27bf


#16

Hi Jake,
Thanks for the fixed.
I tried to download pure Android M from google.
But it seems the code is different with CyanogenMod.
And I try to replace TeleService from google pure Android M, the phone still died and didn’t work.
If I just need 3G/LTE data connection but no need dial/message or other phone function.
Do I have any other method to do that?
Because it seems Qualcomm remove phone components from APQ8016 BSP, could I replace Android OS to pure Android which I download from google and build by myself?

Thanks.
Best regards,
Johnny


#17

Hi Jake,
Maybe this post is old, but I just tried following the procedure above for Android 6.0.

Please refer to the following guide: https://developer.qualcomm.com/download/db410c/linux-android-software-build-and-installation-guide.pdf

Sync the LA.BR.1.2.7-01010-8×16.0-4 manifest

Use the following BSP: https://developer.qualcomm.com/download/db410c/android_board_support_package_vla.br_.1.2.7-01010-8×16.0-4.zip

Unfortunately I am stuck when running ./DB410c_build.sh. Get this error:

Applying patches …
applying patches on ./bootable/bootloader/lk …
./DB410c_build.sh: line 44: cd: /home/osboxes/dragonboard/linux_android_board_support_package_vla.br.1.2.7-01010-8x16.0-4/APQ8016_410C_LA.BR.1.2.7-01010-8X16.0_6.0.1_Marsh_Mallo_P2/./bootable/bootloader/lk: No such file or directory.

When I list the contents of this directory… it is empty and same with the parent: /home/osboxes/dragonboard/linux_android_board_support_package_vla.br.1.2.7-01010-8x16.0-4/APQ8016_410C_LA.BR.1.2.7-01010-8X16.0_6.0.1_Marsh_Mallo_P2

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Randy


#18

Hi Johnny,

The BSP is only meant for use with Qualcomm’s fork of Android at the CodeAurora forums and may have issues with AOSP. Please try with CAF and see if that resolves your issue.


#19

Hi Randy,

Are you sure that the platform synced correctly? Can you see the rest of the build environment?


#20

Hi,
The repo sync failed the first time due to out of memory. I increased the memory for the virtual box image, and then tried again. still out of memory, so I created a swap partition and then the repo sync was successful. Is it possible the original failure would have caused this?

Anyways, maybe I should just clear everything and start over.

Thanks, Randy
