We’ve had the Linux source code for RK3188 for a little while, which allowed a preliminary Ubuntu image to boot on devices such as Tronsmart T428. But AFAIK, we did not have any Android SDK for RK3188 HDMI TV Stick, until now. A new user on ARMTvTech has uploaded 5 rar files that can be decompressed into a single 3.2GB file called mk908_RK3188_R-BOX_ANDROID4.2.2-SDK.tar.gz.
I’ve had a look, and this is the content of the file which appears to be a complete Android 4.2.2 SDK for MK908.
There’s 2 documents in Chinese:
- mk908_checklist.doc – Apparently some instructions, or recommendations specific to Android
- MK908_checklist_kernel.docx – Some details about the kernel config
There are also more documents and directories in RKTools/docs, but I haven’t checked the details:
Infrared remote control
R-Box Platform User Manual_V0.9.pdf
RK USB Application Note_V2.0.pdf
Rockchip Parameter File Format Ver1.3.pdf
Back to the root directory, we’ve got a Makefile, and mkimage.sh script, but both are called by 3188.sh script which apparently builds all, and generates a firmware upgrade image. I’ve tried to run 3188.sh, but the build failed with the following error:
make: *** No rule to make target
out/target/common/obj/APPS/Calendar_intermediates/classes.jar', needed byout/target/common/obj/APPS/CalendarTests_intermediates/classes-full-debug.jar’. Stop.
I haven’t tried to investigate the error further. If one of you is successful with the build, please do let us know.
