Sent from a Cool Phone stuck with crappy KingUser

Use tar -xJf file_name.tar.xz to extract *tar.xz....

Ans: If your archive is in .7z format, do this:

  • Open Terminal
  • Download 7zip if not done before (sudo apt-get install p7zip-full)
  • Now cd to the drive where you have downloaded the sources
  • 7z x (file name here).7z

If your archive is in .tar.gz format, do this:
  • Open Terminal
  • Now cd to the drive where you have downloaded the sources
  • tar -xvzf (file name here).tar.gz

Now you have extracted the source.

Q2> I am not able to extract the source. What should I do?
Ans: You cannot extract source with GUI on the Archive Extractor. So, try the method I mentioned.

Q3> Is the size of all files 2GB? I saw the size 2GB on Androidfilehost!
Ans: The mentioned size on the thread is correct. AndroidFileHost has some problems while showing file sizes for files above 2GB.

Please press the "Thanks Button" if I helped you and quote me if you have a problem!

Hey, first of all....A BIG Thanks to you guys, you guys are awesome and keeping the spirit of xda to help your friends......
A request, Add the method to extract *.tar.xz as "tar -xJf file_name.tar.xz"

I will definitely spread this thread because I know a few people who may need it. It's the least that I can do. Thanks.

@Perseus should this thread be moved to Misc android development? So more people can see it? Or is it fine here...

Thank you very much!
I always wanted to build a ROM but 18GB downloads always stopped me to do so. This is amazing!
However it could have been a little better if the archives were broken into parts so that they could be downloaded on two or more systems and on FAT32 SDcards (4GB max file limit).

Well done!

Umm.. Why dont you format ur sd card as ntfs? Its an android? No prob.. Use exfat! We didnt break them into parts as they might create loads of confusion for extracting files
