Android 5.0 Lollipop Source Code Pushed to AOSP

Orange Pi Development Boards

As Nexus 6 smartphone, Nexus 6 tablet, and Nexus Player have now started to ship, Google has pushed Android Lollipop to AOSP (Android Open Source Project), as well as images for Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013), and Nexus 10.
Android_5.0_Lollipop

You’ll soon be able to retrieve the source code with the following command lines [Update: I still can’t use the lollipop-release branch to retrieve the code, so instead you can use android-5.0.0_r1 tag for Nexus 9, or android-5.0.0_r2 tag for Nexus Player / Android TV]:

repo init -u https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -b android-5.0.0_r1
repo sync

Currently repo init fails with:

error: in init -u https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -b lollipop-release --repo-url=https://gerrit.googlesource.com/git-repo --repo-branch=stable: revision lollipop-release in manifests not found

But everything should come online soon. In the meantime, you could still browse the code. Anyway that means Android 5.0 images for mini PCs, TV boxes and other devices will hopefully be available in a few weeks, or a couple of months.

There’s a missing word there “You’ll soon be able to the source code”.

It’s nice that the source code is available and that Google releases it so quickly. We should start seeing some ports soon and maybe it will be easier than it was before given that the kernel has device tree support now.

According to this post on the Android Building group, the android-5.0.0_r1 tag (LRX21L) is for the Nexus 9, and android-5.0.0_r2 (LRX21M) is for the Nexus Player, which means that R2 (LRX21M) is for Android TV.

[…] Android 5.0 source code was pushed to AOSP less than a week ago, but oma7144, a member of Arctablet, already managed to have a preliminary firmware boot on Odys Iron, a tablet powered by Rockchip RK3188. This is still work in progress, and the firmware image has not been made available for download, but it looks promising, and that means Android Lollipop firmware images for Rockchip tablets and mini PCs could be released sooner than I initially expected.
