total noob here - web developer turned bad
I was wondering how to merge manufacturer source code into android source code? I see instructions every where for compiling android's source, and the manufacturer's source, and they all say "merge the source code", but they don't say how to do that. i've downloaded, via android's "repo" script, allllllllllllllllllllllllll 20gb of android source code (once it's setup), and i've also got all the LGE source code (for their hardware kernel drivers, i guess?). the instructions are pretty clear, but, there's that 1 damned step that is not clear for this noob "... And, merge the source into the android source code".
what i'm stuck on, is "HOW do i do that, and WHERE do i do that"? Do i just copy the manufacturer source into a specific android source folder, or what?
thanks in advance.
