Build kernel from source for ZTE Open

Posted

Hello Firefox OS users and developers,

I have a ZTE Open phone running Firefox OS 1.1, and I need to modify some parts of the kernel for my project. I've tried several versions of kernel sources but none boots up. The most promising one is https://github.com/yan12125/zte-kernel-roamer2@211d61fca37432254f0f8698fd549d6309b382fa. It keeps rebooting while I can dump a few lines of logcat. I guess I need a correct version of kernel. Anyone know where to find the correct kernel source tree?

Here are some details of my device: Model: ZTE Open OS: OPEN_US_DEV_FFOS_V1.1.0B02 Stock kernel version: Linux version 3.0.21-g7b553d6 (zhangchun@zte) (gcc version 4.4.3 (GCC) ) #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Jan 7 16:30:01 CST 2014

Official updates are released by the manufacturer, and unfortunately Mozilla has no control over the scheduling of these releases.

However, the ZTE Open C developer device allows you to build and install updates manually - but please be aware that there is a possibility that this may brick your device.

You can find more information about upgrading, rooting, and making builds for your ZTE Open C device on the following MDN (Mozilla Developer Network) document:

Thanks for the fast response. However, what I have is the ZTE OPEN, not ZTE OPEN C. ZTE OPEN C is flame and ZTE OPEN seems inari [1]. I've tried both flame and inari in the ./config.sh step. flame fails due to lots of differences in ./device/t2m/flame/extract-files.sh. inari builds with some slight fixes but boot.img is missing [2].

Anyway thanks for the help, and I think I should ask ZTE rather than Mozilla.org for help on device specific problems.
