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 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?
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.
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...
1. I added a google account. Without asking it synced everything. 2. I turned off all sync except gmail. 3. But when I add a new contact it still warns me that it will sync it with my google account! 4. I tapped ok. Now by default the google account is on the top of the screen where I add contacts - obviously it syncs it.
Also, when I now go to settings > account > google account I can't seem to turn on/off settings. Eg if I touch an item that is turned on it starts to sync it instead of switching it on.
Obviously I could remove the google account altogether but I would prefer to keep it just for gmail sync. How to do this?
I'm working for Freescale Semiconductor on the i.MX series linux BSP. Now we have android running well on i.MX515 platform, and hope to push android kernel repo into android.git.kernel.org. Then what's the process need us to follow? How reviews will be done? And what we should provide?
I'm implementing my own sync adapter and everything works great. A strange i'm having is that after the sync is over, the Android still shows the sync icon (the one with the rounded arrow) in the account activity, and that someone (i guess its the account manager) repeatedly calls the sync again and again, every 30 to 60 seconds. Now i tried all sort of things to test this issue and i have discovered something strange. In my code, i do resolver.applyBatch every 50 new rows. (each new contact i sync has about 5 rows). If i remove the applyBatch (which means i retrieve the data from the next, sort it and prepare it, but never "commit" it) - the problem goes away. The icon disappear and the account manager never calls it again on its own (I'm using Android 2.1). I must also state that no exception is being thrown in any of the cases and that all the methods finish gracefully.
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 just made the switch to Android with a new Galaxy s4 gt-I9500 running JellyBean 4.2.2
On the notifications window my phone keeps trying to sync memos, contacts and messages.The memos gets stuck at 7% and the result is that I have duplicate memos in S memo.The messages and contacts never goes beyond 0%
I dont have memos syncing checked in any of my accounts! I think it has something to do with SmartWitch cause these are memos from my old iphone (even memos I deleted from my iphone keep syncing back onto the galaxy). I only used smartswitch once and since then every morning my phone brings this sync back into notifications.
I am having trouble getting with syncing my contacts between Google and my Galaxy Note 2
Any contact changes made on the Google website show up fine in my phone contacts but the opposite is not true. Changes made to my phone contacts are always overwritten and revert to the original version saved on Google servers.
Did a search on this but couldn't find what I was looking for. Is there a way that I can sync my stock calandar to the one on my wife's gs3 and vice versa so that when an entry is made the other one can see it?
I am looking for a way to keep my contacts and calendar from GMail in sync with Outlook. What is the best way to do this? I used the Google Calendar Sync in the past, but I didn't like it. As for the contacts, I am wanting to keep EVERYTHING synced with Google, such as contact photo, notes, ect. I do use more than one calendar on Google. I am not sure if that would make a difference or not. Is the best thing to do set up my own Exchange/Activesync server? Or is there an app that will do just this?
