I have a git submodule (RestKit) which I have added to my repo.
I accidentally changed some files in there and I'd like to go back to the source version. In order to do that, I tried to run
Mac:app-ios user$ git submodule update RestKit
But as you can see here, this did not work as it is still "modified content":
Mac:app-ios user$ git status
# modified: RestKit (modified content)
Mac:app-ios user$ git submodule update -f RestKit
doesn't revert locally modified files.
How do I reset the content of that submodule?
Move into the submodule's directory, then do a
git reset --hard to reset all modified files to their last committed state. Be aware that this will discard all non-committed changes.
