Prepare Build Environment

Cleanup

cd ~ && sudo rm -Rf ~/'android/lineage-15.0/'* ~/'.ccache' ~/'.jack-server' ~/'.jack-settings' && sync

Install git-repo

mkdir -p ~/'bin' && wget -O ~/'bin/repo' 'https://storage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo' && chmod +x ~/'bin/repo'

Configure Git

Motorola Manifest

  • If pulling in fresh sources, do not add this until the sources are backed-up 1)

cm-14.1

mkdir -p ~/'android/lineage-15.0/.repo/local_manifests' && nano ~/'android/lineage-15.0/.repo/local_manifests/motorola.xml'

Sources Management

Pull-in and Update Sources

Network Sync

  • As of 2017/10/29, this downloads 11.3GB for lineage-15.0
  • If pulling fresh sources, this command is good to leave running overnight, and then followed up with a backup
cd ~/'android/lineage-15.0' && repo sync --current-branch --network-only --jobs='4' --force-broken --force-sync && sync

Complete Sync

  • Performs both Network and Local file sync
cd ~/'android/lineage-15.0' && repo sync --current-branch --network-only --jobs='4' --force-broken --force-sync && sync && repo sync --current-branch --local-only --jobs='16' && sync

Backup Sources

cd ~/'android/lineage-15.0' && tar -cvzf ~/'Downloads/lineageos-lineage-15.0-'$(date +%Y-%m-%d)'.tar.gz' '.repo' && cd ~ && sync

Restore Sources

mkdir -p ~/'android/lineage-15.0' && cd ~/'android/lineage-15.0' && tar -xvzf ~/'Downloads/lineageos-lineage-15.0-'*'.tar.gz' '.repo' && sync

Modifications

Allow Signature Spoofing

  • This allows microG Services Core and FakeStore to fake GApps properly
wget -O ~/'Downloads/GmsCore-android_frameworks_base-O.patch' 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FreeMobileOS/android_packages_apps_GmsCore/20c65a1fc33ee28ae0d12a927bd243d4ee2e3abc/patches/android_frameworks_base-O.patch' && cd ~/'android/lineage-15.0' && patch --no-backup-if-mismatch --strip='1' --directory='frameworks/base' < ~/'Downloads/GmsCore-android_frameworks_base-O.patch' && rm -f ~/'Downloads/GmsCore-android_frameworks_base-O.patch' && sync

Allow Location Providers Outside /system

  • This allows microG Services Core to provide UnifiedNlp without having to be installed to /system/priv-app or having to have an outdated NetworkLocation.apk there
wget -O ~/'Downloads/UnifiedNlp-android_frameworks_base-N.patch' 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/microg/android_packages_apps_UnifiedNlp/master/patches/android_frameworks_base-N.patch' && cd ~/'android/lineage-15.0' && patch --no-backup-if-mismatch --strip='1' --directory='frameworks/base' < ~/'Downloads/UnifiedNlp-android_frameworks_base-N.patch' && rm -f ~/'Downloads/UnifiedNlp-android_frameworks_base-N.patch' && sync

Remove Deprecated HWUI GCC Flag

  • Removes the deprecated -mapcs flag and prevents clang++ from reporting an error about it later on
  • Only has effect and needed if HWUI_COMPILE_FOR_PERF is true
sed -i 's/-marm -mapcs/-marm/g' ~/'android/lineage-15.0/frameworks/base/libs/hwui/Android.mk'

Avoid GNSS denials

echo 'allow hal_gnss_default vndbinder_device:chr_file rw_file_perms;' | tee --append ~/'android/lineage-15.0/device/moto/shamu/sepolicy/hal_gnss_default.te' > '/dev/null'

Tweaks

  • If this file doesn't exist, this is likely being ran on fresh sources, and requires breakfast to be served first
  • Place this at the top of the file underneath the copyright 3)
nano ~/'android/lineage-15.0/device/moto/shamu/device.mk'

1)
that way the backup can be a clean-slate and be used for other non-Moto devices
2)
refer to branches
3)
this ensures the custom PRODUCT_PROPERTY_OVERRIDES are used, see comment
