Hi everybody,

 

Sorry for mi English, I'm a french student and I'm not very good for write in English ...

 

I'm trying to Cross compile Android on MCIMX6DL-SDP and I don't want to flood my computer with all branches of Android repository.

 

So, my question is : Is it necessary to make a repo sync command for acquire all branches of Android git ?

In the User guide documentation there are two parts which are discussing about this mistake. In effect, in the lollipop 5.1.1 doc package, The part 3.1 in Android_User's_guide.pdf explain which is possible to take Android sources in the first paragraph (page 2) and it's possible to make a Freescal git to take source of Android in the second (page 3). This is a little bit trouble to understand this part for me ... I have to execute this 2 parts or can I choose just one of this 2 solutions ?

 

And if this 2 parts are nedded, are there an alternative to make a repo sync for just take Android lollipop branch ?

 

Thank you so much !
