How To SVN

You will need:
A PC running a newish version of Windows
TortoiseSVN, choose 32 or 64 bit depending on your OS
7-Zip archive program to zip the ROM

Step 1-3 is only for people who haven't set up the SVN yet,
if you have already set up and just want to update to the newest revision,
go to Step 4. "Updating" and then Step 3. "Exporting and zipping"


1. Setting up folder structure

Once you have TortoiseSVN installed, browse to a directory where you would like your ROM to be stored.
Once your in that directory create new folders:

"soldier9312-g96x" - [will contain rom files]
"soldier9312-g95x" - [will contain rom files]
"soldier9312-flashable" - [will be the folder where you zip up your ROM]

You don't have to use these names, it just makes things less confusing if you do.

2. Downloading the ROM

To checkout the desired ROM, right click the folder soldier9312-g96x or soldier9312-g95x and select "Checkout".
Now you have to enter the URL from our SVN Repo.

soldier9312-g96x: http://www.renovate-ice.com/svn/soldier9312-g96x/trunk/

soldier9312-g95x: http://www.renovate-ice.com/svn/soldier9312-g95x/trunk/

Copy and Paste the correct URL into the "URL of repository" and press OK.

If all done correctly the ROM should start downloading, this could take a while depending on your internet speed.
This is the one and only time you will have to download the full rom.
Only a rebase will trigger a full redownload of new ROM, because we remove all old files then.

Once it has finished you will see the checked out Revision number in the Log screen.
You can tell if everything has synced correctly as there will be a green tick on the folder icon.

3. Exporting and zipping

Open the folder from your checked out ROM and you will see the rom structure.
Your instincts will probably tell you to add this to a zip and then just flash on your phone,
but as this is the folder linked with the SVN, there are hidden files which we don't want to
include in our rom.zip.

To get rid of these hidden files, all you need to do is right click either "soldier9312-g96x" folder,
(you need to select the folder you used) go to "TortoiseSVN" then click "Export".

Clicking on "Export" will open a file browser window where you have to select the "soldier9312-flashable" folder.

Once the export has finished, you're going to zip up the rom so you can flash it.
Open "soldier9312-flashable" folder and select all the folders and contents.
If you have 7zip installed click "Add to Archive".
This will open a dialogue, all you need to do is set the the format to ".zip", choose a name, and where to save it.
Once you have done this click "OK" to start the zipping.
Once finished this is your completed rom.zip, simply transfer this to your phones memory and flash in recovery.
Now you have to delete all files inside the "soldier9312-flashable" folder. Keep this folder clean.

4. Updating

If we push an update to our rom, svn users can stay up to date change by change, and only by downloading the modified files, not the entire rom everytime.
To update to the latest revision all you need to do is right click on your synced svn folder and select "SVN Update".

This will update all the changed files to the latest version, keeping you up to date.
Once the update is complete, you'll have to export the rom again (step 3) before zipping it up and flashing.
Before you export though, make sure you deleted the previous revision from "renovate-flashable" folder!
