Download The Android Source Code

The Android Source Tree of our Khadas VIMs 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 9.0 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
  1. Create an empty directory to hold your working files:
    $ mkdir -p WORKING_DIRECTORY
  2. Run repo init to download the manifest repository first:
$ repo init -u -b khadas-vims-pie
  1. 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.

Tip: 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.

  1. Begin a new branch for development:
    $ repo start <BRANCH_NAME> --all
