Android and Linux Kernel porting to OMAP-3530
At the order of an American startup company working with Android-based mobile devices, we have ported Android and Linux kernel to the OMAP-3530 hardware platform by Texas Instruments. While working on the project, Promwad experts adapted Linux kernel and launched Android correctly on the board.
The biggest challenge was that the original version, Linux kernel 2.6.29, which was supplied with a development board, did not support the functionality required for Android installation. We analyzed the compatibility of different Linux kernel versions with the OMAP Stalker board. This led to the selection of Linux 2.6.32 version from the linux-omap project. In addition to the Linux kernel configuration, we also corrected approximately ten problems in the low-level Android source code to effectively perform the engineering task.
