Build kernel for M4 aqua E2303

Good afternoon. I wanted to modify the kernel for my phone, but I found out in the building tutorial that the M4 doesn't have its lines for compiling it. But in the github repository I can find files for the M4 (in the folder /device-sony-tulip). Is this enough for my purpose. And if so, which would be the arguments for the mkqcdbootimg tool? Thanks in advance

Re: Build kernel for M4 aqua E2303

I'm trying to build AOSP for the Xperia M4 aqua, focusing specially on the kernel, in which I want to make some modifications. But doing so, I'm facing difficulties. I managed to build one following the tutorial available in sony's web, but after flashing it the phone couldn't boot, so probably I've made something wrong. The only step that I do have to modify is to add the kanuti and tulip repositories to the .xml file? Or should I do anything else?
