Hello Phillip,
I do not know, is this the place to ask for mksquashfs support for android.

Could you please provide exact
1). Toolchain information.
2). Necessary compressing libraries
3). Steps to compile mksquashfs for android.

Because when i cross compiled the source provided here with arm-eabi- and used on my android target. it gave magic number 7f45(ELF error). non executable on arm.

Please provide the requested items to get mksquashfs for android, since it's utility is more in embedded field.

Thanks in advance,
Zaheer

  • I was able to get this working with some minor changes to the code. Unfortunately this was two years ago, so I can't remember exactly which compiler flags I needed, but you can see the code changes here: https://github.com/vasi/squashfs-tools/commits/mac/squashfs-tools
