    Simple Porting Guide for Motorola Z6, V8, E8, EM30, U9, ZN5 (Motomagx) (En)
    [ ] 25-Oct-2009, 00.36.19

    Porting Guide for Motorola Z6, V8, E8, EM30, U9, ZN5 (Motomagx)

    updated 01.12.2009

    Requirement: OS - Linux

    If you want to compile under windows use a coLinux based distro (andLinux, Topologilinux, Ulteo Virtual Desktop)

    download motomagx-toolchain.tar.gz, megaupload-mirror and unpack it to a linux shared folder

    Install enviroment:

    run 'Konsole' under andlinux


    sudo mkdir /mmc
    sudo chown user -R /opt
    sudo chown user -R /home
    sudo chown user -R /mmc
    mkdir /opt/toolchains
    mkdir /home/z6
    mkdir /home/z6/build
    mkdir /mmc/mmca1
    tar -C /opt/toolchains -xzvf /mnt/win/motomagx-toolchain.tar.gz
    cp /opt/toolchains/motomagx/ /home/z6
    cp /opt/toolchains/motomagx/ /home/z6

    Note: If you use a Linux OS (Ubuntu, Mandriva, Debian, e.t.c.) that doesn't have KDE environment installed, then you can input all the commands under your linux console (Access it with the combination Ctrl+Alt+F1, return to your environment using Alt+F7)

    now when we have installed the enviroment, we can try porting an application

    run enviroment

    cd /home/z6

    download any source
    for example newvox 1.0
    extract to /home/z6

    cd /home/z6
    tar -xzvf /mnt/win/newvox-1.0.tar.gz

    cd newvox-1.0

    Configure it for your MotoLinux OS

    ./configure --host=arm-linux-gnueabi

    Compile the application



    if everything was configured and compiled without errors
    we compiled an executable file 'newvox' and now we can test it in the phone. To do so, copy the executable file to your memory card
     and run under console

    cd /mmc/mmca1
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/mmc/mmca1/.system/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
    chmod +x newvox

    Note: to check your applications under windows access your start menu, click 'Run' and input cmd. After launching dos input


    Now under telnet input the commands written higher

    Info: export LD_LIBRARY_PATH means that you supply the folder where you have your SDL libs installed to (The folder may vary depending on the phone)

    if you don't have a configure file in your sources then you must manually edit your makefile - search and replace strings:

    CC:=gcc ---> CC:=arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc
    cc=gcc ---> CC=arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc
    cxx=g++ ---> CXX=arm-linux-gnueabi-g++
    ld=ld ---> LD=arm-linux-gnueabi-ld
    ar=ar ---> AR=arm-linux-gnueabi-ar
    as=as---> AS=arm-linux-gnueabi-as
    oc=oc ---> OC=arm-linux-gnueabi-objcopy
    ranlib=ranlib ---> RANLIB=arm-linux-gnueabi-ranlib
    strip=strip ---> STRIP=arm-linux-gnueabi-strip

    Solution for adding autohide app(s)  when you receive an incoming call (sms, flip, other phone events) with suspending audio based on replacing procedure SDL_PollEvent with own mySDL_PollEvent

    int mySDL_PollEvent(SDL_Event *event);

    // audio use sdl-lib
    SDL_AudioSpec obtained;
    boolean _audioSuspended;

    void suspendAudio();
    int resumeAudio();

    // audio use sdl-mixer lib
    void suspendAudio();
    void closeAudio(void);

    int mySDL_PollEvent(SDL_Event *event)  {
        int _r= SDL_PollEvent(event);
        if (!_r)
            return 0;
        if (event->type == SDL_ACTIVEEVENT) {
            if (event->active.state == SDL_APPINPUTFOCUS && !event->active.gain) {

                for (;;) {
                    _r = SDL_WaitEvent(event);
                    if (!_r)
                    if (event->type == SDL_QUIT)
                        return 1;
                    if (event->type != SDL_ACTIVEEVENT)
                    if (event->active.state == SDL_APPINPUTFOCUS && event->active.gain) {
                            return 1;
      return _r;

    // if audio use sdl-lib
    void suspendAudio() {
        _audioSuspended = true;

    int resumeAudio() {
        if (SDL_OpenAudio(&obtained, NULL) < 0){
            return -1;
        _audioSuspended = false;
        return 0;
    if audio
    use sdl-mixer-lib
    void suspendAudio()

    int resumeAudio() {
      int r = Mix_ResumeAudio();
      if(r == -1){
        return -1;

    void closeAudio(void) {

      Check the examples (sound use sdl-lib) hheretic-0.2.0-1200-lubomyr.patch and hhexen-1.6.0-1200-lubomyr.patch (sound use sdlmixer-lib) More info to come...

    Monitoring "Segmentation fault" problem
    Download gdb and unpack to phone /mmc/mmca1/games folder
      application must be compiled with prefix '-g' and must not be stripped

    ulimit -c unlimited

    Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    <core> file will be created
    ../bin/gdb ./<app> <core>

    utility strace

    ../bin/strace ./app

    To be continued...

    Is there any form to do this in windows ?(cygwin)

    1 Pantamorph   [Entry]
    Newvox didn't compile for me after configuring it, I recommend making a better and a bit harder example, such as OpenJazz (It's not big, you don't have to configure it much)
    Just add info for every command that you used when you changed the makefile

    2 lubomyr   [Entry]
    for me - configure & compile ok
