Android AOSP source code back online with a new home

In a post on the Android-building Google group, Dan Morrill announced that the AOSP tree (the "Master" and "Gingerbread" branches) are once again available online.  Because of problems with the kernel.org servers, the source has been MIA for a while, and in the downtime Google ramped up work for their own git hosting on Google's servers. 

For now, only the code is available.  Google is working hard to get the Gerrit code review site back in operation, then gitweb afterwards.  Dan also reiterates that the Ice Cream Sandwich source code will be available as soon as devices running it are delivered. 

With new servers comes new download and building instructions, which Dan outlines in his message at Google groups.  Be sure to have a look and get your new repository set-up -- you can find all the information at the source link.

  • Awesome
  • Good let us see some 4.0 source code. Hopefully soon! This closed source 3.x kills my buzz.
  • 4.0 source will be released once the Galaxy Nexus is out to people.
    "We plan to release the source for the recently-announced Ice Cream Sandwich soon, once it’s available on devices."
  • I saw that too. The nature of closed source nature of 3.x still kills my buzz.
