Password requirement when fetching source code?



I’ve tried to fetch source code following this guide
But, i got an issue when “Fetching project android_packages_providers_CallLogProvider”. It hanged on!

I pressed enter and it required password,

i tried my github password but it’s not working

How can i resolve it?


Why did you go to download the repository ‘android_external_svox’? It is not exsit on github.

  1. You need to verify the file default.xml
    $ cd ~/project/vim/nougat/.repo/manifests
    $ git log
    $ git status
    $ git diff
  2. You need to verify the file manifest.xml
    $ cd ~/project/vim/nougat/.repo
    $ ls -ln manifest.xml

Give that informations for me.


Hi terry, I have the same problem,

I do not have a “~/vim2/.repo/manifests” in the working directory, but it has a “~/.repo/manifests”

How to fix it?


@Vitak @mike1991.phil I’m sorry for that. The repository ‘android_external_svox’ is not exist on GitHub. I don’t know why the repository was deleted. Some peoples downloaded Android Nougat source code successfully two weeks ago.
I will update the repository at Oct 9.


@Vitak @mike1991.phil
The repository ‘svox’ was token down by Github due to the copyright

I updated the download link of svox repository to google server, you can download the source code again with ‘repo sync’ command.




I downloaded it successfully.

You can delete whole exsit svox repository in repo and try again

# cd ~/vim2
# rm -rf external/svox
# rm -rf .repo/project-objects/android_external_svox.git
# rm -ff .repo/project-objects/platform/external/svox.git
# rm -rf .repo/projects/external/svox.git
# repo sync external/svox


Thanks Terry. It’s worked again!
