How To Use SVN – A Comprehensive Guide

Flashing, upgrading, and more flashing. This is what most people at xda do to try and keep up with the times. This is almost a full time job/hobby for some people and sometimes, not even the devs can put out roms fast enough. Because of this, there are ways to provide junkies or ORD addicts with a faster fix. SVN, which really stands for subversion is a command that allows updates of software giving you the opportunity to easily roll back and update without any major difficulties. Basically, using SVN would allow anyone to update the builds directly from the developer’s repo. The advantage of this is that you will not have to download a full new build every time as this will allow you to simply update the builds every time with whatever changes the dev may have made from the previous one. This works great for people who release nighties. If you are curious as to how this is done, XDA Recognized Developer LiquidSolstice has put out a fantastic guide, which is in essence fool proof to get this up and running in no time. The guide is complete with explanations, examples, links to files and programs, and even a full list of repos from devs present in the EVO 3D area. However, this is universal enough to be used with any dev that works with a SVN server.

Intrigued? Please be sure to stop by the tutorial and make sure that you read the whole thing as you can end up flashing a bad zip if you don’t.

As promised, I’m posting this graphical guide up for those who wish to use SVN in order to obtain nightly builds of ROMs and all other items that utilize SVN for distribution.

You can find more information in the guide thread.
