We are building android for Toradex Apalis iMX6 boards, but we are stuck at downloading android source after executing following commands:
$ ~/bin/repo init -u https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -b android-7.1.2_r9
$ ~/bin/repo sync
it's downloaded over 100 GBs of files and still continuing to download so I stopped it because it exhausted the partition space. Is it that big? What would be approx. size of the source code?Can we discard some files from downloading?
Also, how do I add hardware support for Quectel GSM modules and mSATA drives in it.
And how to build APIs for app development to access them from apps.
