VIM4 Download Android Source Code


This document mainly introduces how to download the Android source code of VIM4.

Get Source Code

Install git-lfs tool to download Android 11.0 SDK

$ sudo apt install git-lfs

1) Create an empty directory to store working files:


2) Run repo init to download the manifest repository first:

$ repo init -u -b khadas-vim4-r-64bit

3) Run repo sync to pull down the Android Source branch:

$ repo sync -j4

It will take approx one hour to complete the initial sync operation.

If repo sync operation failed, you need to run the command repeatly; or you can try with this script:

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

If needed, press Ctrl-\ to quit.

4) Go to the following directory and execute the git lfs pull command to pull large files. Otherwise, compilation will report an error.

/users/vim4_code$ cd vendor/amlogic/common
/users/vim4_code/vendor/amlogic/common$ git lfs pull
