SO AS OF NOW WE HAVE GUIDES ABOUT HOW TO MAKE A KERNEL , ROM FROM SOURCE CODES..THIS GUIDE WILL TALK ABOUT PUSHING THE DEVICE TREE OR KERNEL TREE TO YOUR GITHUB ACCOUNT ...THIS IS A BEGINNER'S GUIDE IN THIS GUIDE I WILL ASSUME THAT UR BUILDING CM 11

STEP1:- CREATE A GITHUB ACCOUNT :P
STEP 2 :- CREATE A REPOSITORY BY CLICKING THE "+" beside ur user name and name it "vanir_device_samsung_i9082"
STEP 3 :- in the terminal navigate to the device folder
Code:
cd vaniraosp/device/samsung/i9082
then we type
Code:
 git init
this command sets up the git files required to push the files to the github account
STEP4: WE TYPE
Code:
 git add .
THIS COMMAND ADDS ALL THE FILES WHICH ARE REQD TO BE PUSHED
STEP5: WE ADD A COMMENT TO THE FILES WE ARE ADDING .. IN THIS CASE WE WILL ADD "INITIAL REPO"
Code:
 git commit -m "initial repo"
STEP 6 : WE ADD THE REPOSITORY TO WHICH WE HAVE TO PUSH THE FILES TO
Code:
 git remote add origin https://github.com/username/vanir_device_samsung_i9082.git
STEP 7: THIS IS THE FINAL STEP WHERE WE ACTUALLY PUSH THE FILES TO THE GITHUB REPOSITORY
Code:
 git push origin master
thats it ...YOU HAVE NOW SUCCESFULLY PUSHED UR FILES TO UR GITHUB ACCOUNT .... U SHOULD ADD THIS LINE IN THE README FILE .... VANIRAOSP DEVICE TREE FOR I9082 DERIVED FROM PAWITP'S DEVICE TREE


THIS GUIDE IS A WIP ... I WILL UPDATE IT SOON WITH PICTURES ..TO MAKE UL UNDERSTAND BETTER

[GUIDE]Git Advanced Methods
Sometimes,you might be wondering how can i update the device tree without deleting my current device tree but through applying the latest changes

Well today i will teach you a new function call cherry-picking.This function is one of the most known features of git as it provides simple and easy copy-pasting job for you

First of all,add the remote first.Note:The hello is the main remote for this link
Code:
git remote add name url
eg: git remote add hello https://github.com/AOGP/android_packages_apps_Lightbulb.git
Second,fetch the remote
Code:
git fetch name
eg: git fetch hello
Thirdly,once finish fetching.Copy the commit id from github
Code:
git cherry-pick SHA-1/Commit ID
eg: git cherry-pick a7d0c5fc6df49a07855ccb36fb22fdaf321e20ba
If you faced any errors,solve them by typing and then see the red color files name in the terminal and fix them by comparing between <<<<<<<HEAD
Code:
git status

Once done solving all the errors,push the commit to github to keep the authorship of the commit as it is rude to just use their work and put yourself as author
Code:
git push [name of the remote] [your repository branch]
eg: git push origin master
