prebuilt can not be downloaded (error while building: cannot find zipfile directory)

Added by Fil Lupin about 1 month ago

Hello, I try to build replicant 4.2 (see https://redmine.replicant.us/issues/1826).

Hello,
when trying to download the replicant 4.2 sources according to https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/ReplicantSourceCode#DownloadingUpdating-the-source-code I launched

vendor/replicant/get-prebuilts

and got the following output:

Archive:  vendor/replicant/prebuilt/common/apps/TerminalEmulator.apk
  End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of vendor/replicant/prebuilt/common/apps/TerminalEmulator.apk or
        vendor/replicant/prebuilt/common/apps/TerminalEmulator.apk.zip, and cannot find vendor/replicant/prebuilt/common/apps/TerminalEmulator.apk.ZIP, period.

and indeed, here is the content of vendor/replicant/prebuilt/common/apps/ directory:

$ ls vendor/replicant/prebuilt/common/apps/
FDroid.apk            TerminalEmulator.apk

Is it possible the wiki is documented for replicant 6 and failed for replicant 4.2?
Do you know how to build the replicant 4.2 version?

Since Replicant 6 does not currently allow to import SMS & MMS without Silence and I lost my SMS with Silence crash, I can not receive SMS since 2 months.

Then, my only solution is to go back to replicant 4.2 which worked before my update but this build error forbid me to do so.
This is heavily incapacitating since I currently can not use my phone for SMS.

Could someone help me with this?
Thank you.

Does anyone understand the origin of this issue?
It currently forbid to build former Replicant 4.2 (at least for Galaxy s3)
