h1. Replicant Sources h2. Browsing the source The Replicant source code is currently hosted at Gitorious: https://gitorious.org/replicant There is a branch per Replicant version, like @replicant-2.2@. h2. Code tree location Start by defining the place where you want to download Replicant tree. *Important: the name of the path to this location must not contain spaces!* h2. Installing the tools Then, download the @repo@ tool and set it executable: <pre> mkdir tools cd tools wget http://commondatastorage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo chmod a+x repo cd ../ </pre> h2. Getting the source manifest The source manifest is the list of all the git repositories that are present in the Replicant tree. Each Replicant version has a dedicated branch with the proper source manifest. h3. Replicant 4.2 <pre> mkdir replicant-4.2 cd replicant-4.2 ../tools/repo init -u git://gitorious.org/replicant/manifest.git -b replicant-4.2 </pre> h3. Replicant 4.0 <pre> mkdir replicant-4.0 cd replicant-4.0 ../tools/repo init -u git://gitorious.org/replicant/manifest.git -b replicant-4.0 </pre> h3. Replicant 2.3 <pre> mkdir replicant-2.3 cd replicant-2.3 ../tools/repo init -u git://gitorious.org/replicant/manifest.git -b replicant-2.3 </pre> h3. Replicant 2.2 <pre> mkdir replicant-2.2 cd replicant-2.2 ../tools/repo init -u git://gitorious.org/replicant/manifest.git -b replicant-2.2 </pre> h2. Downloading/Updating the source from the repos Now that you have configured the repository to use a manifest, you can start downloading Replicant sources for the desired version. *This step is very long and can take the whole day to complete!* <pre> ../tools/repo sync </pre> Depending on your internet bandwidth, using the @-j@ argument may speed up the process (if you encounter errors, retry without the @-j@ argument): <pre> ../tools/repo sync -j9 </pre> Once the source is ready, you need to get the prebuilt applications (they are downloaded from F-Droid): applications: <pre> vendor/replicant/get-prebuilts </pre> FDroid.apk and Android Terminal Emulator are downloaded from f-droid.org. You must redo these steps each time you want to sync your tree, in order to keep it up to date. Future syncs are faster than the first one.
