Could you point me to those build scripts?
well, the problem there is also with the issue itself... like, obviously it's desirable to get TIDL to work on a newer kernel, and if it were easily done then the TIDL images would already *have* a newer kernel ;)
my notes on building a custom kernel: https://pastebin.com/eLhrp1Hg (in your case you'd want the ti-linux-4.14.y branch of the ti-linux-kernel-dev repo)
Well, there was no official word on if it's even still being worked on or not, hence the issue. If I got a reply like "nope, we don't have time to ever realistically suport that" I'd be fine at least knowing that^^
