Quick steps to sync and build Evervolv

Getting Started

Install the Android SDK.

Not strictly required to build, but if you want adb / fastboot / monitor, you'll want it see googles instructions

Install the Build Packages

See initializing the environment for googles detailed instructions

For Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit:
$ sudo apt-get install git gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential \
    zip curl libc6-dev libncurses5-dev:i386 x11proto-core-dev \
    libx11-dev:i386 libreadline6-dev:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 \
    libgl1-mesa-dev g++-multilib mingw32 tofrodos \
    python-markdown libxml2-utils xsltproc zlib1g-dev:i386
$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/

If you have dependency issues, try installing only a couple of packages at a time.

Install Java

As of KitKat, Android cannot be built with openjdk6. You will have to install Oracle's JDK6 manually.

Alternatively. KitKat experimentally supports openjdk7. On Ubuntu install openjdk-7-jdk and you must put export EXPERIMENTAL_USE_JAVA7=true in your bashrc in order to use it.

Create the Directories
You will need to set up some directories in your build environment.
mkdir ~/bin
mkdir -p ~/android/system
Install Repo
Enter the following to download and make executable the "repo" binary:
$ curl > ~/bin/repo
$ chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

Add export PATH=~/bin:$PATH to your bashrc You may need to logout/login for path changes to take effect.

Download Source
Now enter the following to initialize the repository:
cd ~/android/system/
repo init -u git:// -b kitkat
# Then to start the Sync. (This is gonna take awhile)
repo sync -f

All proprietary files are kept in the repo, no need to pull them from your device (unless adding devices).

Configure Build
Now, your environment must be configured to build specifically for your device. To set up your build environment:
. build/

And choose your correct device.

The first time you run lunch the device, vendor, and any dependencies will be automatically downloaded.

Next, we will build the actual ROM.

We will specify the amount of jobs you want to run (replace # with number of cpu cores, or be adventurous and max it out!) 'otapackage' creates the zip file that can be flashed through recovery

make -j# otapackage

Your compiled Evervolv rom will be located at:
