Lately I’ve been working on a research project concerning android’s dalvik vm. Unfortunately, to compile cyanogenmod (at least for the Nexus 7), some proprietary drivers from the device are required (i.e. via ./extract-files.sh in the build guide for grouper ).
Now it may be inconvenient for you to actually attach the device (like if you are using a build server). So how to get the drivers? Surprisingly google didn’t offer any hints, but there is a straightforward way to do it… extract them from a cyanogenmod nightly build!
To make it even easier, here is a modified extract-files.sh that pulls them from the extracted grouper build of your choice
