Initial Setup

The typical choice for firmware is the official firmware. For simplicity and consistency, this website will be using it. However, there are other very popular unofficial distributions, and the steps will work the same for any distribution.

Other firmware forks will operate the same way for setup, so you can use whichever fork you want.

Cloning your first repository

  1. Ensure that your machine has access to git.
  2. Navigate into the directory you would like to store your local copy
  3. Run the following command:
         git clone --recursive

Voila! You now have the firmware source on your computer.
