cat /proc/config.gz
tmp-mksh: cat: /proc/config.gz: No such file or directory

Is there another place to find it?

  • Welcome to Android Enthusiasts! It's not quite clear what you're asking for here. Could you please edit your question and add some more details? What kind of .config file should that be, and what for do you need it? – Izzy Jul 4 '14 at 15:05
  • Do not close this question. It has been answered, and seems like a valid question. – geffchang Jul 8 '14 at 11:28

/proc/config.gz (and consequently .config), a file containing all needed flags for the Linux kernel building process, can only be found if the kernel maker / your device manufacturer explicitly enabled config.gz availability when the Linux kernel was being built.

So if it's not present in /proc, you'd have to either do a trial-and-error, get help from somebody else, or contact the manufacturer.

  • I can confirm this. It's not stored on the device at all. You need to find the right kernel build options elsewhere. – Dan Hulme Jul 4 '14 at 19:21
  • @Dan Hulme The .config 'stock' is not available period. I found a custom ROM image and used that. The the blacklist feature on the partitions bricked my phone. Samsung/AT&T engineers got me. – brad Jul 14 '14 at 18:01
