Hi all,

good news I managed to put back online a repo, with liab sources version for now. The infamous svox is out of the repo now, and need to be cloned from google repo directly (check the readme on the repo). I hope this will be enough to be away from DMCA notification.

The new repo is there: https://github.com/ChrisP-Android/BananaPi-Android-4.2.2-Liab

I will put back the lemaker and Mattrix version later.

Just to make you aware, I have no time to maintain it (as you probably noticed ;) ), so if any volonter want to involve, I will transfer the repo to him.

Mattrix, can you pin this post please, I will update it when I'll add the others repos.
thanks for posting the repository.

Hello ChrisP,
I am pleased to see you here again.

In my mixed sources I improved a lot. Who is interested, can download the changes here:

1. lichee is complete
2. In android use the complete new folders device and hardware and use from frameworks the files in the last folder. It's important for 5 button mouses. Middle=menue, side1= Home, side2=Mute
3. Take the new scripts and user folders
4. Read the readme's

liab can you share your lastest android img. ?

Thanks Mattrix ^^

Liab, to understand the changes, what folder should I reinject in my repo to be up to date without replacing everything ?

If I understand well you post, it should be folders:
android/hardware
android/device
scripts
user

What about lichee, the full folder ?

Hi ChrisP,
The changes in lichee are not so much, but to have the same it's better to swap the whole lichee.
The same with the whole folders android/hardware and android/device.

In android/frameworks only rename the original files input.h and InputReader.cpp to -org and insert the new input.h and InputReader.cpp.

Hi ChrisP, thank you for your work! It works perfect!

WLAN works, a five button wireless mouse works, sata works and the four additional commands are working and the BusyBox v1.23.1 (2015-03-13 04:13:22 CET) multi-call binary is very busy.

For all who want to build it, here a short instruction, but all you find in the readme:

1. clone the git
2. copy /lichee/linux-3.4/arch/arm/configs/bpi_defconfig to /lichee/linux-3.4/.config
3. if wanted make your own thing in .config
4. goto /ANDROID/scripts/ and open a console
5. time ./build_kernel.sh
in 5 minutes its ready
6. time ./build_android.sh
choose 15, 17 works too, I use it to play with the mk's and flex files
in 50 minutes its ready and the image is in /lichee/tools/pack/

If there is an error, you have the wrong Linux. I compiled zig projects, believes me, kubuntu 12.04 32 is the best, but for android the 64 Bit version is strongly necessary. I never use a VM, in our time HDD's are unbelievable cheap, no reason to use a VM.

Cool, glad to see something so usefull back online available for everybody

In addition, to avoid any further DMCA notification on the repo, I removed the svox folder from android/external, but you can get it directly from google sources. However, it doesn't seems mandatory for most usages.

I give up putting back the lemaker and Mattrix version online, I just have the push hanging after a while. I think I was very lucky putting this one, and since I consider to be the best of all, it's perfect
