    Initialized empty Git repository in /home/benkramer/android/vendor/samsung/toro/.git/
    fatal: https://github.com/koush/proprietary....git/info/refs not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?

    I assume this is an easy fix of cloning a different link, but I am not sure exactly how to find this link. I notice if I follow that link in a browser I see there is a directory named "toro" so I tried https://github.com/koush/proprietary.../toro/toro.git however that did not work either so I think perhaps the directories may have changed?

    Any help would be appreciated, as I do not have much experience using git and am not sure!

    UPDATE 1: Ok, so I ended up noticing at the top of the page when taking that link in a web browser it had the link "https://github.com/koush/proprietary_vendor_samsung.git" so I tried a git clone on that link in a separate folder to test it out. I believe I received within all of that, the toro folder I need. So, I am going to try continuin just copying and pasting that folder to the vendor/samsung where I believe it should be.

    UPDATE 2: That seemed to work just fine doing it the way I did, however, it would probably have been easier to get JUST the toro rather than his entire ICS tree (or whatever it is exactly that I got). Either way, compiled (only took about 1.5hrs on my machine!) and followed the last few steps with SU and GApps and am about to install it on my phone to test. SO EXCITED!



    Hey BMKDROID,

    Did this work out for you? I am getting the same error. Im curious if just grabbing the whole tree and moving the toro folder over to vendor/samsung worked fine. Let me know.
