VIM3/3L Download Android Source Code

The Android Source Tree of our Khadas VIM3 are hosted on Github. There are many different repositories. Walk through the steps below to download the Source Code.


Firstly, install git-lfs tool for downloading Android SDK.

$ mkdir git_lfs
$ cd git_lfs
$ wget
$ tar xvzf git-lfs-linux-amd64-2.3.4.tar.gz
$ cd git-lfs-2.3.4
$ sudo ./
$ git lfs install

Create an empty directory to hold your working files:


Run repo init to download the manifest repository first:

android 9.0 64 bit:

$ repo init -u -b khadas-vim3-p-64bit

Needed after repo sync go to the following directory and execute the git lfs pull command to pull large files. Otherwise, compilation will report an error

/users/amlogic/vim3/vim3_64bit$ cd device/khadas/
/users/amlogic/vim3/vim3_64bit/device/khadas$ git lfs pull

android 9.0 32 bit:

$ repo init -u -b khadas-vims-pie

Run repo sync to pull down the Android Source Tree:

$ repo sync -j4

The initial sync operation may take an hour or more to complete.

You might need to run above command repeatly if it fails halfway. Or you can try with this script instead.

repo sync -j4
while [ $? = 1 ]; do
	echo "Sync failed, repeat again:"
	repo sync -j4

If needed, press Ctrl+\ to quit.

Begin a new branch for development:

$ repo start <BRANCH_NAME> --all
