This will Allow you to build CM7-Nightlies or "Kangs" at any time you please.

Compatible with Ubuntu or rpm distros

It's a bash/sh script for automation, as simple as a double click.

it's downloading and installing all files/repos/sdk/adb/fastboot and compiles. (If you already have some of this installed, it prompts before installing)

-------

Please test it, and report bugs here (files attached)
No donations wanted, just click that THANKS button ;)

new build.sh menu
Screenshot-Terminal.png


just unzip on ubuntu/linux and run ./douchebuild.sh
if ./douchebuild.sh is not recognized as an executable, just
Code:
sudo chmod 775 douchebuild.sh
You will be asked for sudo pass (since you edit repos and add adb in bin) and some info for git.

after completing you can always create a fresh build from the Desktop shortcut build.sh

ofcourse i don't take any credits for cm, all credit goes to cyanogen and teamdouche. the script is just a shell compilation of the cm wiki.

guys i made a small shell script for automation. tried it twice on clean ubuntu builds and it works just fine!

it's downloading and installing all files/repos/sdk/adb/fastboot and compiles. if anyone has a clean installation (or has the time to create a new vbox to test it try it)

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6751304/androidmake

just unzip on ubuntu/linux and run ./androidmake

if you are on x64 run this first:
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install git-core gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential zip curl zlib1g-dev gcc-multilib g++-multilib libc6-dev-i386 lib32ncurses5-dev ia32-libs x11proto-core-dev libx11-dev lib32readline5-dev lib32z-dev sun-java6-jdk gitg qt3-dev-tools libqt3-mt-dev eclipse valgrind pngcrush && sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun

after completing you can always create a fresh build from the Desktop shortcut build.sh
Thanks. this should come in handy since I just reinstalled my linux desktop. I'll try it out later tonight.

I was planning to do a GUI or text-based version with more options (more phone support etc) but i don't have the time. if anyone wants to do it the script is there have fun ;)

Thanks. I'll give it a shot tonight.

glad to see that this is helping you guys. if anyone has another phone (except N1) it would be really helpful to send me the proprietary files so i can make this for other devices also (i can do it without but it's easier for users if i have the files) i can explain how to obtain them.

mmmm but the latest merge aren't on rom (like profiles on power down screen etc.)

with this repo we build rc1? or nightly? ^_^

and... build.sh doesn't work properly... i modified like this:

cd ~/android/system/;
repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b gingerbread;
repo sync;
cd;
cd ~/android/system/vendor/cyanogen/;
./get-rommanager;
cd ~/android/system/;
. build/envsetup.sh;
lunch cyanogen_passion-eng;
make -j`grep 'processor' /proc/cpuinfo | wc -l` bacon;
cp ~/android/system/out/target/product/passion/update*.zip ~/Scrivania/update-cm7-N1-$(date +%d_%m-%H.%M.%S).zip
echo -e [=-This is an ALPHA-test version of whatever this is-=];



instead of

repo sync ;
cp ./vendor/cyanogen/products/cyanogen_passion.mk ./buildspec.mk;
. build/envsetup.sh;
lunch cyanogen_passion-eng;
make -j`grep 'processor' /proc/cpuinfo | wc -l` bacon;
cp ~/android/system/out/target/product/passion/update*.zip ~/Desktop/update-cm7-N1-$(date +%d_%m-%H.%M.%S).zip


is correct? ^^

thanks for you're replay)

    You'll actually need to edit android/default.xml and copy your modified file to .repo/manifests/default.xml. Next repo sync, you should see less projects. Mine is now down to 198 from 234.

    WARNING:
    If CM team does make any changes to upstream manifest (add or remove new/obsolete projects), these changes will not be synced to your machine, since default.xml has been modified. To force re-sync with upstream manifest, you'll have to do this ...
    $ cd android
    $ git reset --hard
    $ cd ..
    $ cp android/default.xml .repo/manifests/default.xml
    $ repo sync

    In fact, to discard ALL changes you've made to ALL projects/repositories, do this ...
    $ repo forall -c git reset --hard
    $ repo sync
