Building from Source:

Requirements:
  • Linux, (I use Ubuntu, works with other distros, too, but maybe you have to make some changes to the commands)
  • A working Build Environment, (here is a guide how to set up a Build Environment on Ubuntu)
    (needed steps till "Identify Yourself to the Repo")


Create working directory and init repo:

Code:
mkdir ~/Android/Darkkat
(you can use a directory name and path you like, but you have to change the commands to match to your local path)

Code:
cd ~/Android/Darkkat
For Android 4.4.3/4.4.4 version:
Code:
repo init -u git://github.com/XXMrHyde/android.git -b darkkat-4.4.3
For Android 4.4.2 version:
Code:
repo init -u git://github.com/XXMrHyde/android.git -b darkkat-4.4
Sync the repo:

Code:
cd ~/Android/Darkkat && repo sync
(now it`s time to drink a big cup of coffee, tea, or ... this can take some time)

Get the needed binaries for the Nexus 7:

Run the scripts:

Code:
cd ~/Android/Darkkat
Code:
./<filename>
(Confirm Licensing Agreement)

Build the rom:

Code:
cd ~/Android/Darkkat && . build/envsetup.sh && brunch flo
(time for the next big cup of coffee, ...)

That`s it,
you (hopefully) compiled successfully your own DarkKat rom


Update the sources:
Code:
cd ~/Android/Darkkat && repo sync
(this time it doesn`t take much time)

Now build again,
(if there are a lot of sourcecode changes, or your last build is some times ago you may need to clean your "out" directory):

Code:
cd ~/Android/Darkkat && . build/envsetup.sh && make clobber

Darkkat Addon

Included:

  • Custom installation with Aroma Installer
  • English and german language
  • Bootanimations:
    • AOSP 4(.1/.2)
    • AOSP 4(.3/.4)
    • Galaxy Nexus
    • OmniRom, (old)
    • CM10(.1/.2)
  • Fonts:
    • Ubuntu
    • Roboto, (Android 4.4)
    • Roboto, (Android 4.3)
    • Roboto, (Android 4.2)
  • Install SuperSu
  • Additional Apps:
    • RootBrowser
    • BoatBrowser
    • Airdroid
    • Terminal Emulator
  • Install backup script:
    • Bootanimation
    • Font
    • SuperSu

Some infos:

General:

If you don`t like you don`t have to use the addon,
but take a look at post #2 "Installation" -> "Without DarkKat Addon"

You only have to flash the addon one time, (if you choose to install the backup scripts),
all your custom changes will be restored after an update.

The Darkkat Addon will work with all Darkkat Builds,
you don`t have to look at the addon date and rom date.

Additional Apps:
Don`t use the addon to update the apps, (this should be done via Play Store)
There is no need to install apps which are already installed.

Well, for a guy who seemed reluctant to put out a new 4.4 rom, this is a great rom with everything working. I like the fact that you included the new Google and Launcher. Thank you very much. Will donate.
