AOSP snapshot for hikey


#1

Hallo, i am a new owner of the hikey. I installed already debian and android. Android work well with the factory image, but i would like to use an actual snapshot. I followed these instructions:

and downloaded the files here:

The link for hisi-idt.py is broken, so i downloaden it here:

https://snapshots.linaro.org/96boards/reference-platform/components/uefi-staging/latest/hikey/release/

If i use the downloaded l-loader.bin, fastboot don’t recongnize the board. So i used l-loader.bin from here:

https://releases.linaro.org/96boards//hikey/linaro/binaries/latest/

With this fastboot works … then i flashed the bootloader, kernel and filesystem how it is descripted in the documentation. The bootloader starts, but not the kernel … the green led is on and the boot process stops.

What can i do?

I got help at the irc-channel #96boards

The bootloader has to be the newest, i got the files from here:

https://android.googlesource.com/device/linaro/hikey/+/master/installer/hikey/

With this files the aosp snapshot boots on my hikey.

Thank you
