Which step failed for you when you followed the: ?
The OpenJDK 6 and 7 source-code is not designed to be easily cross compilable so unfortunately I cant give you any better tutorial.
This OE-Core cross compile build recipes is the most tested way to cross compile both OpenJDK 6/7 and all software that OpenJDK itself depends on to create a complete system to run on armv5 hardware.

If you are interested in cross compiling OpenJDK directly against a custom armv5 linux root filesystem then you may try use the latest OpenJDK 8 source.
OpenJDK 8 have recently got a new configure based build system that is more cross compile friendly.
Scroll down to section 7.3. Cross-compilation in this guide:
