Custom ROM build does not retain changes

I’ve managed to successfully build the android source with some personal modifications but when I flash the build to the VIM2 and boot the device, nothing has changed. Customizations I made include:

  • Adding my own launcher as a system app. However, once I build the src (both in it’s entirety and just the system img) my app’s folder doesn’t appear in out/target/product/vim2/system/app or out/target/product/vim2/system/priv-app

  • Enabling multi window and free form modes in frameworks/base/core/res/res/values/config.xml

Seems like the kvim2 build is pulling from somewhere else than a usual aosp build or perhaps I need to modify a makefile or something?


Hey @nblandfo,

  • adding your launcher:
    • did you add your Launcher to PRODUCT_PACKAGES in your device configuration (i.e. in device/khadas/kvim2/
  • enabling multiwindow:
    • did you edit the config.xml file in the overlay directory of your device configuration (i.e. in device/khadas/kvim2l/overlay/frameworks/base/core/res/res/values/config.xml)?

Best regards,
