Install < 1 hour
Download Depends on net connection. 100mbit/s+ (~40 Minutes), 5mbit/s (6-8 hours)
Building Depends on PC specifications
  • If you're looking to upgrade your computer for better build times, consider these few pointers:
    1. Better CPU: A processor with more powerful Single Core processing can process code faster. We recommend getting intel CPUs as they are better in that aspect. Anything higher than the i5-3570 can build in <2 hours
    2. SSD or HDD with higher RPM: This allows faster R/W Speeds and results in faster build times. Its better to always get more drives such that there is less stress on the drive and theres more data flow per SATA connector
    3. Bigger RAM: More RAM allows more instructions to be sent over to the CPU and will allow the CPU to be more efficient. It also helps if you want to use applications whilst building and not ressult in build failures caused by insufficient memory
    4. Faster Internet: Nowadays internet connections are around 2mbps+ There is not a need to upgrade your internet that quick. If you have a tendency of re-downloading the full source code or downloading source code for other ROMs, consider a faster internet connection.

How to build with Resurreected Scripts:

Simply run the setup script to get your PC ready

cd ~/
git clone git://github.com/ResurrectionRemix/ResurrectedScripts.git -b marshmallow scripts
cd scripts
./setup.sh

After setting up, cd to the source code folder directory and run the build script

cd <path/to/rr/source> [Default is /home/username/rr]
bash build.sh <device>

The build script will then prompt you for your device codename you wish to build, incase you didn't pass it as a parameter For Example; Hammerhead, Huashan Once you have input the device codename, RR will start building for your device. It will either fail and require you to fix the errors, or it will be successful.

If the build was successful, the zip file will be located in:

<path/to/rr/source>/out/target/product/<device-codename>/ResurrectionRemix-M-<version>-<date>-<device-codename>.zip

Tips and Tricks

  1. Use Screen When you build RR, you might get disconnected from your SSH session or someone may close your Terminal Session. By using screen, RR will continue building in the background regardless if your SSH or terminal session is closed unexpectedly. To open a screen session type;
screen -S android

To diconnect a screen session, press CTRL+A+D. To connect to screen session;

screen -R android

To connect to a session that has closed unexpectedly;

screen -D -R android

To close a screen session;

screen -X -S android kill

To list screen sessions;

screen -ls

  1. Store your builds in a seperate drive for faster compilation This results in the Read and Write operations to run simultaneously. Hard Drives benefit from this as it places less stress on the drive head. Generall, all SATA drives benefit as data can only be transferred in one direction at the same time frames. More SATA ports mean more lanes for data to flow.

To do so, you will need to find where your 2nd drive is mounted in Linux. Assuming your 2nd drive is mounted at /disk2, add this to your .bashrc or other similar file

export OUT_DIR_COMMON_BASE=/out

Make sure your user has write permissions to that of course.

Instead of the old build output, it will be here instead: /out//target/product//ResurrectionRemix-M-(version)-(date)-(device-codename).zip

  1. Store CCache in a seperate drive for faster compilation The explanation here is similar to the previous trick although CCache is a bunch of compiled data that will be frequently accessed by the build generator to cut down build times. By placing CCache in a seperate directory, again, the data will be accessed faster and more efficiently.
export CCACHE_DIR=/disk3

Your ccache will be stored in there then. If you want to clear the ccache, just simply delete the folder

How to make unofficial builds Official

Incase you are building an unofficial build, and want to make it official, feel free to contact one of the team members [you can find them in the Google+ community]. Namely, Atlan KRK, Varun Date and Akhil Narang, Brian Koluch, Andres Pascual Enjoy! :D
