Anyone into Android development?
I have recently compiled my own android linux kernel for my device, as the sources released by my manufacturer were for 1.6 and 2.2. With some difficulty, I was able to compile a working Gingerbread 2.3 kernel. It's much, much harder when your vendor does not release the full and proper sources for all hardware components--we had to piece together the light, proximity and gravity sensors, along with other things. It was definitely a painful experience.
Anyone else do this, or any kind of application development for Android? Would love to compare notes.
FYI - I started from AOSP gingerbread branch, pulled the kernel config off my device from manufacturer, borrowed some parts of the device source tree from similar hardware phones with open sourced devices, and about a thousand source hacks later, had a working compile. Is there a better way, when we don't have the full device tree sources?
