Banana pi BPI-M3 - Android build procedure

Hi all,

I’m new to BPI family and trying to build Android 5.1 source code. Can anyone please share the correct build procedure and source code.

I’m able to compile BPI-M3-BSP fine. While compiling Android source i’m getting various errors in lichee/kernel and android.

**No rule to make target device/target/softwinner/octopus-bpi-m3/kernel

Appreciate your help and support.

Total WAG

I do not Android

However I found that on the linux tree the binutils and gcc did not have a select case for the armv7l kernel. Adding a choice to linux.h and one of the config files in binutils correctly identified and allowed GCC to build.

You might look for where the M2 is recognized and add a similar line for the M3.

Another thing that I saw was a series of commits back in 2015-2016 that did not include the identifier 0X007 or ARMv7l. Perhaps android has a similar set of changes. Reverting these may allow a build.

Mostly what I have observed is that all of the pieces are there but not arranged and scripted for the BPI-M3 in later kernels much of the steps are the same but omit the A83T.
