[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
