Been trying to build my own Android build server only to find insufficient resource to do so like here. After some digging around, I found the perfect deal for this to happen.
- 2 CPU Cores
- 1 GB RAM
- 200 GB Disk
- 1000 GB Bandwidth
- Price: US$ 5/month
Got it for cheap using a coupon code available at the blog post link I posted above.
Now for the last round of cheap and cheats, instead of checking out the CyanogenMod source codes, I did a full mirror. It’s faster to download and more memory friendly.
$ repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b cm10.1 --mirror
It’s still downloading all the source codes now and it’s doing so a lot faster than before.
