I was just wondering if I want to sync to the latest Eclair repo which one of the following would be the correct command? What is the difference between them? Currently I am using cupcake version and wanted to move up to eclair. Would I need to do any thing else as far as syncing and building the eclair branch? Currently I am using "Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope)" and java version "1.6.0_16". Code...
I am using Virtual Box with KUbuntu Linux on x86(Windows XP) system and setting up system for Android Source SDK. I have installed repo through (curl http://android.git.kernel.org/repo >~/bin/repo). Now I am trying to initialize repo by $ repo init -u git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git but here I am getting an error shown as follows:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/main.py", line 235, in <module> _Main(sys.argv[1:]) File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/main.py", line 217, in _Main repo._Run(argv) File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/main.py", line 123, in _Run cmd.Execute(copts, cargs) File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/subcmds/init.py", line 218, in Execute self._SyncManifest(opt) File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/subcmds/init.py", line 123, in _SyncManifest m.PreSync() File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/project.py", line 1440, in PreSync cb = self.CurrentBranch File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/project.py", line 271, in CurrentBranch b = self.work_git.GetHead() File "/home/tirtha/mydroid/.repo/repo/project.py", line 1226, in GetHead fd = open(path, 'rb') IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/tirtha/ mydroid/.repo/manifests/.git/HEAD'
I have try to go to the mentioned folder and it looks like /home/ tirtha/mydroid/.repo/manifest.git/HEAD rather '/home/tirtha/ mydroid/.repo/manifests/.git/HEAD'. Can anybody suggest me the reason of the error and any solution for this.

I've googled for hours with no results. Back when I had Ubuntu 10.04 this was never an issue.now that I'm running a clean installed version of 12.10,compiling CM isn't going so smooth...
When I use PC Companion and try to sync my x10 it tells me to select sony ericsson sync in the data sync folder on the phone but it is not there. Where is it and why isn;t it where it says it should be?
I am looking to sync my hotmail account with my Droid X. I currently get all of my hotmail email that comes to my Inbox, but not to my specialized folders. To specify, I have folders for emails from my university, emails I send to myself, etc. I only get the generic emails that I do not filter to a folder.
Is there anything I can do to fix this or any app to help? I pretty much get my junk mail, but not my useful mail.
I'm basically looking for an app, that can provide syncronisation between a folder on my device, and a folder on <insert cloud storage here>. I'm personally trying to migrate away from Dropbox, of which I've been a heavy user for many years. But in the light of the recent NSA gate, I thought I'd take a look what else is out there. I've chosen MEGA, as they provide (on paper) the security I like, and enough storage for my cloud-storage-needs.
I've been using Dropbox to automatically store the images I've taken with my phone camera and I take a backup of my texts every night at 2pm, which is also, automagically, uploaded to Dropbox. The official MEGA app takes care of the first, but the latter is taken care of within the backup app itself. It can be disabled, though.
I've looked for sync apps, but neither those or apps like Helium doesn't support MEGA.
When I wanted to get Android source code, I knew that I have to use "repo". So what is repo? Why do they use repo and not just use GIT?, and is there a GUI for repo that enables me to pause/resume syncing, because every time I get disconnected occasionally it seems that repo starts syncing from the beginning!
i did repo sync platform/packages/apps/Contacts.git and i received the specific src files for that project now that i modified what i wanted, i want to ubild my changes and patch them to my current Android OS. I tried running make from working directory, but there is no makefile. How would i go about doing so?
This has been one of only a couple of bugbears I'm experiencing with my Hero. While Exchange syncs perfectly for mail, contacts and calendars, it fails to display Outlook folders in the proper way. Does anyone else experience this?
I have something like 20 folders, most of which have subfolders, and then some of those have more subfolders. In Outlook, it's perfect (naturally). On the Hero, it seems to display them almost randomly - certainly not in the hierarchy they should be, or even alphabetically. With 100+ folders (some with the same name), this is a pain when on the move and relying on the phone to give me access to stuff.
Does anyone have a fix for this?
I've tried the 5 day trial of one of the Exchange apps (can't remember the name) but found it clunky and removed double-quick. Don't like RoadSync either. Plus, I don't see why I should pay for an app when the default one should do the job properly.
Also, on the subject of Exchange, is there any way to get tasks to sync? I'm having to use Gmail to "copy" tasks from Outlook (PITA), and don't really want to add a third party app to manage just those.
I guess it's a case of waiting a few months for some kind of update ... or is that me being a little too optimistic?
I am trying to set up a private repository of Android source code while hosting the git trees on github as private repos. I have no problem changing the manifest.xml file to point to public git trees hosted on github in the same way that CynagonMod does, but when trying to point to private repos I get the following error when trying "repo sync":
Initializing project username/android_external_webkit ... fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly error: Cannot fetch username/android_external_webkit Where username/android_external_webkit is of course a private github repo of the same name. I understand the error occurs since I did not specify my user name and credentials to github, but I fail to see how to do it in the manifest.xml with repo.
I am trying to download the android source onto a new ubuntu 8.10 installation on a x86 machine. All the steps worked fine until I tried to init the repo client. I get the following. I can't find anyone else having such an repo error. I did find an obscure message that said the python error might be due to a missing readline module. I tried to install lib32readline5-dev as in the download instructions and got the following error Any ideas anybody? I am somewhat new to linux but have had a fair amount of unix experience in the past. Code...
I ran the command to sync with android-4.1.1_r1. Its literally been syncing for hours and still not done. I'm currently on /platform/pdk. As for Ubuntu, I've never used it before but I'm running the guide posted on XDA for building with Ubuntu and I've done everything to the point of syncing...which I'm waiting to advance after this is done.
When you have to pull the proprietary files it says to use the device name. In my case it would be Samsung_d2tmo (for T-Mobile sgs3) correct?
I am trying to play a video in android emulator I have the video in my assets folder as well as the raw folder.But after doing some research still i cant play video in my emulator.i am working on android 2.1 My video format is mp4 so i don't think that should be a problem.Could anyone just give me an example code so that i can understand a bit more?The problem is that the VideoView that I need to display the Video will take only a URI or a File path to point to the Video.If I save the video in the raw or assets folder I can only get an input stream or a file descriptor and it seems nothing of that can be used to initialize the VideoView.
I am working on some a application where I have to update some files present in assets / raw folder runtime from some http location.Can anyone help me to by sharing how to write files in assets or raw folder programmatically?
