I already posted this in the Warm thread, but there are a lot of devs using SVN, so I hope it can be usefull for more than just the Mynions


I figured out a really quick and easy way to update SVN ROM's using adb on Windows.

This is how to export only the changes since the last time you've installed the ROM using Tortoise SVN. Right click on the SVN folder and select TortoiseSVN -> Show log. Highlight the last revision you installed and all the revisions you wish to install, right click and select Compare revisions. In the new window highlight everything, right click select Export to. Create a new folder for this.

For adb sync to work properly you will need to create an Environment Variable. For Windows 7, and I believe Vista: Start -> right click Computer -> Properties -> Advanced system settings -> Environment variables -> New system variable. Variable name: ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT Variable value: the directory you exported the SVN revisions to, I named mine C:\Android\3VO\Warm\Current

I also recommend adding adb to the PATH so this can be executed from the RUN command. To do this, highlight Path in System Variables click edit, do NOT remove anything from Variable value, at the very end add
Code:
;C:\android\platform-tools\
Reboot your computer

After this to update you phone just delete the contents of the ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT directory, export SVN revisions to the directory and execute adb sync and lastly reboot your phone.

Depending on the time since the last update the whole process can take just a couple minutes.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that this only syncs changes to /system and /data. There's no need to worry about META-INF changes but keep an eye out for changes to other files and folders, this will probably only be boot.img and /sdcard

EDIT:

For HBOOT 1.50 unlocked via the HTC Unlock method

Open a command prompt and reboot to recovery
Code:
adb reboot recovery
In the recovery menu navigate to Mount Menu then select mount /system and mount /data

Then you can adb sync as usual while in recovery. A bit more of a pain fvck you very much HTC for that, but still quicker than flashing a .zip.

The digitizer on my phone died, took it in to Sprint and they gave me a new phone. I had a bit of a tantrum in the parking lot when I found it had HBOOT 1.50
However, I am now able to experiment with ADB sync on a phone with the HTC "unlock"

I'm running Warm TwoPointThree, root apks work, but apparently HTC has cut off adb at the nuts with the "unlock"

I managed to get ADB to run as root using unrevoked's zergRush

but, from the looks of it, with S-ON /system is read-only, at least while the phone is booted to system, maybe I can get it to work form recovery. It's just so much simpler to update a ROM from SVN using ADB sync than with a zip.

Well adb thinks it writes to /system from recovery

but clearly this did not stick after a reboot.

I'd read that booting a recovery image from fastboot may allow alterations to /system

still no go.

Thought I'd give booting recovery from RUU mode a shot

Got it!

Reboot to recovery
Code:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]<br />
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.<br />
<br />
C:\Users\Administrator>adb reboot recovery
on the phone (this is for TWRP) -> Mount Menu -> mount /system + mount /data

Then on the computer
Code:
C:\Users\Administrator>adb sync<br />
syncing /system...<br />
push: C:\Users\Administrator\Android\AndroidSDK\ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT\system/app/Settings.apk -> /system/app/Settings.apk<br />
