Thanks. Do you have a url for that newer than 4.4 android work?

I was able using NDK 10e at least that worked here, able to make a
rockbox zip file. The problem comes now when I do a make apk and I get

warning: [options] bootstrap class path not set in conjunction with -source 6
error: Source option 6 is no longer supported. Use 7 or later.
error: Target option 6 is no longer supported. Use 7 or later.

I see much on google but don't understand the fixes, possibly
something to do with jdk? I'm using the meta default-jdk package on
the debian12 vm. This gives openJDK 17.
