Hi,
does anyone know where the source codes of this version are? Repo https://git@bitbucket.org/TinkerBoard_An...nifest.git is on the version 14.3.2.82.

hi maartinus,

maybe, 
somewhere here... https://bitbucket.org/TinkerBoard_Android/

Tinker Board Android / AOSP manifest   sbc/tinkerboard/asus/Android-7.1.2   android_20190515_v14.3.2.82.xml

also.. kbungo - Compiling Tinkerboard's Android might be a good place to start..

not sure if this will help.. How to Build Android ROMs on Ubuntu 16.04..

...
aaaaah... I think I may have misunderstood ;-[... 

you are asking for the source files.. Asus used to build Tinker Board Android 7 Nougat V14.4.0.14...
 
I thought all Android Open Source Project comes from Android Platform Manifest...
Nougat 7.1 API level 25 / Manifest for Android 7.1.2 Release 9

& OEMs only provide / add the Chipset vendor blob.. 
& didn't Rockchip release RK3288  source for U-BootKernel

found GitHub for Tinker Board --- android-7.1.2_u-boot  /   android-7.1.2_kernel

I think you should be able to find working proprietary blobs for 7.1.2 
from latest Tinker Board Android 7 Nougat OS ]]]]....

------------------- ;-]..
hope you find it,

Hi k247tEK, thank you very much for response. I've always used the site bitbucket.org for making of my modified build. The problem is that the latest TinkerOS version on this page is 14.3.2.82 (May 2019). So I would like to know where is an Asus git repo for actual version 14.4.0.14.

hi maartinus,

I don't think its the source code your looking for.. 
as I thought the default manifest file for the last Nougat 7.1.2 released by google can be found 
here.. Manifest for Android 7.1.2 Release 9  default.xml
note... "modify the default.xml  setitng when sync code base..."

so.... if you look @ Tinker Board Android / AOSP manifest   sbc/tinkerboard/asus/Android-7.1.2   

you have three manifest files... 
--------------------------------------------------------------------
android_20180817_v14.1.2.50.xml 72.69 KB 2018‑09‑05
android_20190103_v14.2.2.73.xml 72.69 KB 2019‑05‑22
android_20190515_v14.3.2.82.xml 72.69 KB 2019‑05‑28
---------------------------------------------------------------------
that were modified from the default.xml 48.03 KB 2018‑09‑04 file..

so does that mean three different configurations using the same source files..????
hmmmm.... this is all very new to me.. ;-]...

if that's the case... then that would mean.. 
Manifest for Android 7.1.2 Release 9  default.xml will pull down source code..
from the last Branch revision by Google of Android Nougat 7.1.2... 

sooooo.. its all about the configuration manifest default.xml file.. ???

now, maybe... 
TinkerOS_Android v14.4.0.5 & Tinker Board Android 7 Nougat V14.4.0.14 are both.. Beta releases..
that would explain.. why Asus has not pushed out the manifest files to the main Branch yet ]]]...

well.. that's just a guess..  

I got an old Lenovo Yoga 700-11ISK.. with Samsung 860 EVO 2 TB SATA M.2 (2280) 
Intel Core m3-6Y30 2 x 0.9 - 2.2 GHz, Skylake / with 8GB LPDDR3-1866, dual-channel, soldered RAM...
have just clean installed.. Ubuntu desktop 20.04 LTS
Code:
k247@yoga700-11isk:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS

k247@yoga700-11isk:~$

I'm re-reading.. kbungo -- Compiling Tinkerboard's Android
following.. How to Build Android ROMs on Ubuntu 16.04
& this....... Sony Open Devices Build AOSP Nougat 7.1.2

the first problem I have.. Requirements..
"Before you download and build the Android source, ensure that your system meets the following requirements,
then see Establishing a Build Environment for installation instructions by operating system. "

Hardware requirements 
"If you're running Linux, you need at least 16 GB of available RAM/swap."

I have 8GB.. ram.. so.. I setup 16GB swap, set filesystem partitions with noatime, in /etc/fstab file..
& set swappness to 40 in /etc/sysctl.conf..
Code:
...
vm.swappiness=40
...

Building AOSP 7.x Nougat with only 8 GiB RAM
I have read on some forums.. problems with jack-server.. when building with less than 16GB ram..
The solution.. need to edit ~/.jack-settings, and add this line
Code:
JACK_SERVER_VM_ARGUMENTS="-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -XX:+TieredCompilation -Xmx4096m"
hmmmmmmm...  lots' of fun 4 me... ]]]]]]]]..... tbc..

first setup.. Build Environment.. & get flashing tools setup from.. http://opensource.rock-chips.com/wiki_Tools
Rkdeveloptoolrkflashtool then.. 
for Rockusb...
Code:
adb reboot loader
* daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
* daemon started successfully
see if I can use these tools on TinkerOS_Android 7 Nougat v14.4.0.5 to make..
boot.img, kernel.img, system.img, recovery.img, misc.img, resource.img... etc...

then Build AOSP Nougat 7.1.2 using android-7.1.2_r9  to make system.img

then GitHub for Tinker Board --- android-7.1.2_u-boot  /   android-7.1.2_kernel

then use Rkdeveloptool & rkflashtool tools... to flash files to tinker board..

I've definitely gone down the rabbit hole now,
will let you know what happens,
when I come back up for air ;-]]]....

hi maartinus,

looks like I've made yet another classic typical tEK_Newbie error... ;-]]]]]........

just looking @ the commit date of the default.xml in android / platform / manifest / refs/heads/android-7.1.2_r9
Mon May 01 15:14:02 2017 -0700....

Many thanks for the hint to look @ site.. bitbucket.org.. this is where I should be getting source code from..

just surfaced briefly to catch some air..
back into the rabbit hole I go ;-]..

got out of the rabbit hole, after 8 hours & 32 minutes..
