Can lollipop-release branch be considered the latest for development for all platforms?

I'm not sure I would build the platform for specific devices until the nexus binaries have been updated.  You could try kitkat binaries but I would not recommend it.  It could cause unforeseen bugs and possible no boot.

The factory image for Fugu (Nexus Player) is available for download.

Proprietary Binaries are also available for Fugu.  No proprietary binaries are needed for Volantis. The proprietary vendor binaries are on a separate 'vendor' partition, which is flashed with the factory image update, should not change for AOSP development builds (only boot, recovery, and system partitions need to be updated).

For those who really can't wait :)

The Kitkat Binaries for the 2012 Nexus 7 are okay and result in a successful boot after a little fixup of the keymaster.grouper project. This also had to be done to build master for about a year now so no change
The manta binaries ( both kitkat and preview blob ) seem very broken and fail to initialize GLES,

Thanks

Hi Bill,

What kernel source tree can I use for Nexus7 (grouper) with Lollipop?
i need to incorporate my own drivers, as part of my development.

I did get the "tegra" kernel git, but it does not include any Lollipop branch.

Thank you,

Hi Trevd, I'd really appreciate it if you could give some pointers to what you needed to fixup in keymaster.grouper to get Lollipop working on Grouper with the KitKat binaries.
Cheers,

We pushed two kernel projects for lollipop release.

For Nexus 9 (volantis), the kernel source can be found on android-tegra-flounder-3.10-lollipop-release branch in the kernel/tegra project. It has the following tags:
android-5.0.0_r0.1 first release
android-5.0.0_r0.3 update #1

For Nexus Player (fugu), the kernel source can be found on android-x86_64-fugu-3.10-lollipop-release branch in the kernel/x86_64 project. It has the following tags:
android-5.0.0_r0.2 first release
android-5.0.0_r0.4 update #1

You are more likely to have success with the binaries preview for Nexus
devices,
https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/blobs-preview

Those worked for me on several Nexus devices (4, 5, 7 [2013], 10) with
android-5.0.0_r1. Obviously not officially supported and you shouldn't
use them once official ones become available, but more likely to work
than the KitKat binaries.

Hi Bill,

Small typo I think in the Build Numbers page ( http://source.android.com/source/build-numbers.html ) Lollipop\5.0 is API level 21 (not 20 as shown in the table). Maybe you know who at Google to pass this on to.

Cheers!

Pete.

I noticed lollipop-release still hasn't been pushed for manifest and possibly some others. Any estimated time when this will be done? Is it waiting for all the device trees to be ready?

Hi all,

I have a problem for uploading change for this release.

In fact, there is a build problem with the project platform/bootable/recovery for some platform.
I patch this issue but I can't upload it to perform a review.
(The manifest for android-5.0.0_r2 does not contain a review remote).

Should I checkout the lollipop-dev branch?
Can someone help me?

Thanks,
Adrien

I haven’t done it yet but I do see 4.4W now in AOSP repo.

Google said awhile back that the 4.4W platform push would happen around/during the 5.0 push - so it wasn’t open source… but it is now!

We don't accept changes to the release branches. We plan on pushing
all the new L changes to AOSP master soon and you will be able to send
your fix there.

Hi John 

If you haven't already worked it out ( and for others :) )  change line 39 in vendor/nvidia/grouper/keymaster/keymaster_grouper.cpp from "#include <utils/UniquePtr.h>" to "#include <nativehelper/UniquePtr.h>" 

Hope that Helps

Speaking of kernel source:

Updated prebuilt kernel binaries for a number of devices including flo have been pushed.  The most recent flo binary was committed on October 14:

https://android.googlesource.com/device/asus/flo-kernel/+/308c8240af0c392f99fea928bb97a1a61d60de9f

The most recent source commit to a flo branch/tag was on August 16 to the android-msm-flo-3.4-l-preview: https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/msm/+/2dda0e5bdeb5a77ed4dab668b0ca93eae538a0cb

All evidence indicates that the most recently pushed flo source was NOT what was used to generate the most recent flo binaries.

What branch/tag was used to generate the binary that was pushed to the flo-kernel repository on October 14?
