General :: Update To 1.8 Error - Can't Sync CM Repo
Feb 9, 2013
When I'm in the ~/kelso/android/ system directory in the terminal and try to repo sync,it just keeps saying " update repo to latest version 1.8" then it downloads a files and stops. I try to repo sync again and same thing...
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...
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 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.
Do I take it you do need HTC Sync on your PC to do the update as I still can't get HTC Sync to install let alone be able to use it ! (Error 1713 component missing - told I need to delete something but not sure what, if I uninstall the drivers it still makes no difference)
I purchased a MiniX Plus H24 TV Box for about $35.. arrived, plugged it in and all seemed to be working well. [URL] ....
However, I noticed the audio is slightly out of sync over HDMI and S-Video.. my guess would be this is something firmware related? I've tried different players.. confirmed the audio is in sync when playing on my laptop but for some reason it's out on the Android TV.
I have a copy of the recovery firmware here [URL] .....
Video is being streamed via Wifi from NAS, so I first suspected a bandwidth issue. However it's out of sync on SD video files and will play 720p without buffering the video (however audio is still out of sync) so to me that doesn't suggest a bandwidth issue as I'd expect it to just stutter on the 720p content.
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?
This is driving me nuts, I seem to be unable to download app updates anymore. It attempts to download forever, the progress staying at zero, and eventually gives me error 495.
I tried Googling this, and attempted every solution I could find. I tried signing in and out of my google account, clearing the cache of ALL my apps, rebooting my phone, turning off my WiFi, and clearing more space. Nothing worked.
I just received a notice from Verizonwireless that there is a new software update available. So I went ahead and downloaded the update and attempted to install it. After a few seconds a new window opened showing the stupid Android robot laying on its back and the word "error" displayed. Thinking something bogus is going on with my phone I did a factory erase and retried the software update - same results.
Any way to determine what the error is and correct it so I can do the SW update? Out of curiosity I tried using ClockworkMod Rom Manager to install a custom ROM but got the same error indication.
My phone is a Verizon Galaxy S4 with Andriod version 4.3. The baseband version is I545VRUEMK2.
I have lots of funny contact names because of the SKYPE nicknames. Also, some contacts are made from email handlers.
So to organize them nicely, I spent last few hours on my Gmail / Contact account, renaming, adding photos, merging etc... Except, that when I want to SYNC it. Not all of the contacts update, and some remain as they were.
I would trash them all and import new set from Gmail, but I'm worry that when I do that, it might trash my gmail contact as well
Also, is there any way to change the contact font size? I have many long names, and lots of contacts. The screen cuts most of the names off and many of the contacts share same name. I have to open the contact, to find out details in order to know who I'm looking for.
So I was having a problem with my Optimus V (Virginmobile) and I couldn't send or receive texts. I did a factory restart thinking it would work but then found myself at the recovery menu. When I try to flash xionia_cwma_12518.6.zip it says E:cant find update script. When I try and flash CM7.2RC1_VM670-BobZhome-052012 it installs and when I reboot i get taken back to the recovery menu.
In short; My Virgin Mobile Optimus V is stuck in a recovery loop that I am unable to get out of due to an error while trying to flash ROMs/ Custom Recovery.
The error reads at the end of all attempts: E: Can't find update script.
I have just got an new phone from Orange. The PC companion is saying i can upgrade the software. Following the instuctions I get to the point where the phone is being prepared for update when I get a faild to start update components. What should I do
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?
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.
