Thanks everyone!! I truly appreciate your help!!! It would appear I followed the directions to the LETTER (which was the wrong thing to do )
First, did I understand this correctly:
- lunch kvim-userdebug-64 needs to be lunch kvim2-userdebug-64?
Next, I definitely built the u-boot first. However, I’m starting to doubt that I did that correctly now. Here is what I typed:
make CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu- kvim_defconfig
Sounds like this should have been this?
$ make CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu- kvim2_defconfig
$ make CROSS_COMPILE=aarch64-linux-gnu-
BTW - thanks ssehovic for the tip regarding the OTA package. I’m so familiar with modifying the firmware images that I’ve downloaded that I forget there’s an easier way. As you can tell, I’m new to compiling the source code. But, I’m reading and learning.
Finally, I hooked up a serial interface and captured the log. It looks like everything goes pear shape after the Kernel starts “Unpacking initramfs…”. I compared my log to a working firmware log.
I will try all new suggestions now and let you guys know my progress.
