Hello,

I’m relatively new to building Android and I was hoping to learn using Fairphone Open. I’m following the instructions here: https://code.fairphone.com/projects/fp-osos/dev/fairphone-os-build-instructions.html

But as far as I can tell these are all written for Android 6. What do I need to change to be able to build Android 7?

Hope you can help. Cheers.

I don’t build it myself anymore, but as far as I can remember there were no adjustments from Android 5 to Android 6, either. There is a good chance that it will work with the instructions that are already there.
By the way: Fairphone doesn’t seem too eager with updating that page or updating the blobs. That’s one of the reasons I decided to go with pre-built images. But it is still good for learning, I guess :slight_smile:

Edit: I think you will need JDK 8

Thanks for that. You are right. It seems that it’s not straightforward. The instructions and blobs on the website are designed for Android 6. I had a look at the repository and can only find references to 18.04.1 (Android 6).

I’m going to try building 18.04.1 for the learning experience, but feels like a step back :slight_smile:.
