Large Storage VPS for Android Mirror


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.

I found Reliable Hosting Services while reading through some blog posts here. The specs I went for is below:

  • 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.
