This week was about getting the Gentoo stage3 to work on Android (as a subsystem of Android currently), and replacing init located in the initramfs, which was part of the boot.img that was used to boot the system. To ease the process of compiling for a different architecture, I installed a Gentoo guest in Hyper-V on my laptop and built a cross-compile toolchain for aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu in it. As the three things does not relate to each other very much, I'm splitting them into three separate articles, and placing the link below for reference.
