Hi. I try to build source code of Waze using this manual http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Buil ... roid#Notes . Zip archive from https://github.com/mkoloberdin/waze .Version 2.4. But there is no script "BASE_SRC_DIR/src/build_android.sh" that i need on steps 7,8. There is another sourcecode maybe ?
Thanks

Hi, p37td8.

As this is meant to be open source code, if nobody can answer your technical question, could we ask the Waze devs directly?

Thanks,

Chris.

No one is trying to build the source for android ? Waze developers don`t read this forum?

I'm not sure whether or not the developers read the forum. I just meant that if anyone has real technical issues, they could always ask the developers.

Thanks,

Chris.

Well, the latest version v.3.2.2.2 is not available for download...
Maybe it is possible to retrieve the source code from the APK file?

No. Anything extracted from the APK file is impossible to work with. Function, class, and variable names are lost and converted to identifiers with no meaning.

OK, then is there any documentation in the community about how the software is supposed to work?
Routines (input/output), format of strings saved in CSV GPS files, ... ?
If not, we could start a new page in Wiki/Forum about this subject.

On twitter they just replied to me:

@stackTrase Since version 3.0 we haven't had an open source code :(


Don't know how that fits in with the OpenSource technology they use in their software.

That's already been said about the possibility of there still being gpl code in the product, but there's no way of knowing.
