Build environment/scripts for mAid - [m]anage [A]ndro[id]

The project was named “FWUL (Forget Windows Use Linux)” up to v3.x and has been renamed to “mAid ( [m]anage [A]ndro[id] )” with the release of v4.0.

Rebranding a big project like that is a challenge so you will still find the old “FWUL” brand in several places. That will change but that takes time.

Official XDA thread:


Setup & Prepare (Arch Linux)

No other distribution then Arch Linux is supported (for both: build system and release).

Usage / Build

This is the only supported architecture for mAid!

Use ./ --help to find all possible options like working directory etc.
