New instructions for building Android ICS for Cotton Candy

Hi All,

It has been little news from FXI the last 6 months. FXI Technologies is still strong and we are continuing developing software for the Cotton Candy. The last months has mostly been spent by the Engineering team to set up a better build environment for Android ICS 4.0.4 for the Cotton Candy. In the spirit of the Open Source development we are opening and giving access to the git repositories and information regarding the Android build process.

The build process can be found here

The relevant changes that can be found in the source tree:

  • New firmware for the video decoder, giving better stability in video decoding
  • Enabled support for most USB-to-Ethernet adapters
  • General stabilization of the platform.

Feel free to clone the git repository and start the compiling:-)

A pre-built release can be download from here: Android 4.0.4 Pre 2013 12 11

(This is a zip file, and needs to opened with a program that can unzip files)

    Please compile an image for download. I don’t have a linux cpu.



  2. Does that mean there is finally going to be a new release on Can we expect an email update of what has been happening with the product? I wouldn’t have seen this if I hadn’t thought to check the website and I’m sure there are plenty of others in the same boat.

    • Oh and you may want to point out that the compiled image is a zip file as the extension has been omitted from your S3 bucket.

      Hi Nick,
      There is going to be a release of Android for the Cotton Candy. We are working on it now. All our changes can be viewed in the source tree. We need to perform extensive testing before releasing the image. When the image is ready for release it will be available here.

      There will also be available intermediate releases along the way also.

      We will take note of your email, and inform you when there is a new release.
