Compile Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from Source

Less than twelve hours ago, we brought you news that source code for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean had been released to the Android Open Source Project. As one would expect, this means that we should expect a deluge of source-built Jelly Bean development for various devices in the near future.

In order to help beginner builders get started creating tasty treats from source, XDA Recognized Developer dastin1015 has outlined the steps required in getting started making your own source-built port. The Ubuntu-based guide is not meant to be a complete A-to-Z guide, but it will get you on the right track to make things work.

The guide covers setting up the build environment, connecting to and downloading from the repository, adding a device, and building. As described in the thread:

To compile Jellybean on Ubuntu I’m going to first give you steps to set up your computer to get this thing rolling. Also note that this appears to be a development preview source code.

This will NOT make a fully functional ROM, but will give you a place to start. Also I CANNOT fix every error you run into.

Note: The source download is approximately 6GB in size. You will need 25GB free to complete a single build, and up to 80GB (or more) for a full set of builds.

To get started, head over to the original thread. Your source-built dreams are now possible.

XPrivacy for Android Lollipop – XDA Xposed Tuesday

Have you ever been on the Google Play Store and saw an app that you wanted to try, but the sheer amount of permissions put you off? Why does a LED Color app need access to my calendar? Sometimes app developers tell you that it’s because of the ads. However, other times, apps don’t explain why they are spying on your text messages.

XDA Office Space: Frankenstein’s Perfect IM Client?

The portal’s decentralized XDA office lies in a Hangouts chatroom, where we discuss the latest developments that hit the blogosphere, critique them and figure out what we can do to add a new or original point of view. We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team. The main problem that we have faced since early on is that Hangouts is not versatile enough for in-depth discussion.   What...
