Carbon-Dev Source

Getting Started

To get started with the Carbon-Dev sources, you'll need to get familiar with Git and Repo.

Create the Directories

You will need to set up some directories in your build environment.

To create them run:

mkdir -p ~/bin
mkdir -p ~/carbon

Install the Repository

Enter the following to download the "repo" binary and make it executable:

curl > ~/bin/repo && chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

You may need to reboot for these changes to take effect. Now enter the following to initialize the repository:

cd ~/carbon


Before you continue --> run this in the terminal

repo init -u -b kk && repo sync -f

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST USE THE -f flag when repo syncing/initializing if you want to sync with our default -j4 setup as android.googlesource seems to like to reject your requests if you set your -jflag too high. if you wish to avoid this issue run it repo sync -j1 otherwise -f (force) is reccomended so it will resync the repos it gets error codes on. Thank you and have a nice day.

Building the System

Initialize the environment with the script. Note that replacing "source" with a single dot saves a few characters, and the short form is more commonly used in documentation.

. build/

Enter the number of the build you want to start and press enter

Build the Code:

make carbon -j7 = Run Squisher/Run Opticharger
make otapackage -j7 = No Squisher/No Opticharger

Git TrickMarks

Creating a git branch with no ancestry:
git checkout --orphan <foo>
git rm --cached $(git ls-files)
git add NOTICE
git commit -m "dummy commit"
Then u push the goodies ;)

Submitting Patches
