But that’s all just background info. The two files we are interested in are (1) <code>recovery.img</code>, which contains ClockworkMod recovery, and (2) <code>WOP<nowiki>-[</nowiki>something].zip</code>, which contains WebOS Ports Open webOS.

Installing and running the image

[[comment_install-the-build-for-{{{device_name}}}|Add a comment to this section]]


Assuming the build completed without error (it will be obvious when it finishes).

Once you have built the image, you'll likely want to install it and run it on your {{{device_name}}}. See Testing Images for further details on that process.

Success! So....what's next?

You've done it! Welcome to the elite club of self-builders. You've built your operating system from scratch, from the ground up. You are the master/mistress of your domain... and hopefully you've learned a bit on the way and had some fun too.

Now that you've succeeded in building WebOS Ports open WebOS for your device, here are some suggestions on what to do next.

Also, be sure to take a glance at the Dev Center on this wiki for all kinds of more detailed information about developer topics ranging from collecting logs, understanding what's in the source code directories, submitting your own contributions, porting WebOS Ports open WebOS to new devices, and a lot more.

Congrats again!
