How can i build 32-bit android Oreo for Hikey960?


#1

Hi, I have a question.

I want to build a 32bit Android system to compare the performance of 32bit and 64bit.
so i referenced and copied hikey32 config file to Hikey960 config.

but, there’s a lot of error in boot time. System cannot run servicemanager, and show this err message on logcat.

How can i build 32-bit Oreo for hikey 960?
is 32-bit Android system require a 32bit kernel?

Thank you.

@ric96 Any insight on this one?


#3

A 32bit AOSP build would still have a 64bit kernel, that is what the TARGET_USES_64_BIT_BINDER := true option is for.

Can you also post the new .mk file you created for 32bit build?

This is new modified .mk file in /device/linaro/hikey/hikey960/BoardConfig.mk
and Bold line is changed or added line.

include device/linaro/hikey/BoardConfigCommon.mk

@jstultz any ideas on this?

I’ve not tinkered much with 32bit only, though I know @pundiramit and @vishal-bhoj have experience from back in the day. I’d also take a look at the hikey32-userdebug lunch target in hikey32/BoardConfig.mk.

Thank you for reply guys. please let me know, if you have any ideas
