Android 3.2 Honeycomb Kernel Source Now Available For Devs


Jean-Baptiste M. “JBQ” Queru software engineer with Android Open-Source Project,@ Google, announced the release of the Android 3.2 Honeycombsource code for the GPL and LGPL components  under the tag Android-3.2_R1.

Its not the full code of the 3.2 it is only the kenerl source code, but if you are a developer you’ll know what to do with it.

As usual, and just like we had done before for Android 3.0 and 3.1,
the source code for the GPL and LGPL components of Android 3.2 is
available in the Android Open-Source Project, under the tag

The process to build it is the same as what we had for 3.0 and 3.1:

# start from a master client
repo init -m 3.2-base.xml
repo sync
repo forall -c git checkout android-3.2_r1

# build with the regular process

# to come back to a plain master
repo init -m default.xml
repo sync

The caveats are unchanged since 3.1:
-the checkout command will return an error message because the tag
doesn’t exist in all projects, ignore it.
-the compiled isn’t any more likely to work on actual hardware as 3.1
did, since the same binary incompatibilities are still there.

Questions sent directly to me that have no reason for being private
will likely get ignored or forwarded to a public forum with no further
