Sorry for not providing the full info.Here it is.I am working on a MIPS based broadcom board which has a BCM91103 processor.I have the BSP provided by the vendor and it is based on 2.6.17 kernel. I want to have android OS onto broadcom board. Android relies upon the linux kernel for process management,memory management, IPC and other underlying services.Embedded Alley - a company has ported android onto MIPS architecture. So, i have got their android port for MIPS and the kernel they have used is 2.6.27 version. I now need to place my kernel sources I have 2 questions here:
1.I have the BSP provided by my vendor which is in 2.6.17version. The android port for MIPS is based on 2.6.27 version. So, can i upgrade my BSP from 2.6.17 to 2.6.27?How far is it feasible?How can i find the changes that have gone into the kernel between the 2 versions?
2.Embedded Alley has ported android OS onto MIPS architecture. What are the steps to be performed while porting an OS to an architecture?
Thanks & Regards
