Building Android (Lineage 17.1 or /e/) for LG G6 (h870)

Building Android requires lots of RAM (at least 16GB) and a good CPU required. Here are a set of helper scripts to build ROMs for the LG G6, leveraging the OVH Public Cloud infrastructure.

Typical build time (from scratch) for a ROM is about 3 hours, which is about 1€ with the current hourly prices (2020).

Details

This repository is made of three components:

  • The main build_android.sh bash script which handles the actual build of the ROM (for the h870 device).
  • A small Python module (ovh_orchestrator) responsible for spawning and purging instances in OVH Public Cloud.
  • The main entrypoint run.sh which spawns an instance, runs the build on it copy back the built files and clean everything afterwards.

Installation

cp ovh_orchestrator/config.example.py ovh_orchestrator/config.py
$EDITOR ovh_orchestrator/config.py  # Edit according to your own credentials / needs

Usage

To spawn an OVH instance, and build on it the default flavor (/e/), just run:

./run.sh
