[edit] Using the Prebuilt Release Image

The prebuilt release image can be obtained from here.
After you download the binaries, follow the flashing instruction from "Flashing eMMC image" section.

[edit] Rebuilding Android from Sources

[edit] Build PC setup

You would need a 64bit machine for building Android file system. You must have sudo permissions on the PC for installing packages

The following commands will install the correct packages to your PC:

Ubuntu 10.04

sudo apt-get install git-core flex bison gperf libesd0-dev zip libwxgtk2.6-dev zlib1g-dev build-essential tofrodos x-dev 
sudo apt-get install lib32readline5-dev libstdc++6 lib32z1 lib32z1-dev ia32-libs g++-multilib libx11-dev libncurses5-dev 

Ubuntu 12.04

sudo apt-get install git-core flex bison gperf libesd0-dev zip libwxgtk2.8-dev zlib1g-dev build-essential tofrodos 
sudo apt-get install lib32readline6-dev libstdc++6 lib32z1 lib32z1-dev ia32-libs g++-multilib libx11-dev libncurses5-dev
mkdir ~/bin -p
sudo apt-get install curl
curl > ~/bin/repo
chmod a+x ~/bin/repo
export PATH=~/bin:$PATH

If you do not have sudo rights to your machine, contact your System Administrator for assistance.

The Kernel and Driver sources are built using the Android linux-x86 toolchain for ARM GNU/Linux version. This tool chain can be obtained when you pull the Android code based on the released manifest that will be given.

If you are behind proxy/firewall, workaround it using the instructions in [1]

[edit] Downloading Release Software

[edit] Android Filesystem Sources

Note: You should export environment variable "https_proxy", since Android repo initialization downloads repo tree from Google server over https connection.

export https_proxy=<local_site_proxy_server eg:>

You can get the Android source for this release by doing:

cd <your work directory>
mkdir -p 5AJ.1.4
cd 5AJ.1.4
export YOUR_PATH=`pwd`
mkdir -p mydroid; cd mydroid
export MYDROID=`pwd`
repo init -u git:// -b 5AJ.x -m RLS_panda5AJ.1.4.xml
repo sync

cp -v ${YOUR_PATH}/usbboot/out/omap5uevm/usbboot emmc_files

[edit] Flashing eMMC images

This is done using usbboot and fastboot tool. usbboot is used to put the OMAP5 uEVM board in fastboot mode and fastboot is used to flash the images to emmc.

Follow the steps below to flash the binaries to emmc of the board:

(Refer here for DIP switch location)

Required switch settings on the Panda5 board to enable eMMC boot.
    3   2   1   0

1. Connect your USB3 cable from the target to your flashing station, the power supply, 
& the micro usb cable using a terminal or screen 
(for screen the command is: screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200)

2. Make sure the board is powered OFF

3. Start usbbboot in fastboot mode:

      sudo ./usbboot -f
         When running this command you will see: 
         usbboot -f:  starting in fastboot mode
         waiting for device...

4. Power up your board

     From the terminal you should see something similar to this saying the device is in fastboot mode: 
            r1Texas Instruments Inc Bootloader 1.1.0-jenkins-OMAP5_usbboot-102^0
            Build Info: Apr 20 2012 - 05:01:26
            Entering fastboot mode...
   From the command prompt where you ran the usbboot command you should see something similar to this below:
    reading ASIC ID
    CHIP: 5430
    IDEN: cfd7d499ed40beab470795a5cfbc5707807b4b6a

    CRC0: 06e92275
    CRC1: 3894aaf5
    device is ED/HD (EMU/HS)
    sending 2ndstage to target... f0030002
    waiting for 2ndstage response...
    received 2ndstage response...

5. Run your script
     sudo ./
       This will flash the binaries into the emmc on the Panda board.

6. Now reset the board and let it boot up.
