-Now I should see "remotes/origin/roku_dev" gone, and "remotes/origin/SDK_4.2.P2_Roku" appear. 
-I still have local branch called "roku_devand it's set to track  &quot;remotes/origin/roku_dev&quot;.  Since &quot;remotes/origin/roku_dev&quotis no longer there, if I try &quot;git pull&quoton that branch it will say remote reference doesn't exist.+==== Creating a branch (and possibly pushing to upstream origin) ==== 
 +  $ git checkout -b new_branch 
 +  Switched to a new branch 'new_branch' 
 +That was the same as "''git branch new_branch; git checkout new_branch''" 
 +And now if you want to create that branch name at the remote branch, then: 
 +  $ git push --set-upstream origin new_branch 
 +==== Changing a local branch to a new remote branch ==== 
 +This'll work if you don't have a local branch with that name already. 
 +$ git checkout --track origin/branch_name 
 +==== Making the current local branch track a new remote branch ==== 
 +git branch -u origin/branch_name 
-Since I don't have any changes on that local branch that I haven't pushed up to the server before the name change, I can safely delete this local branch, and create a new local branch from "remotes/origin/SDK_4.2.P2_Roku".
