react-native project cannot find github repo of dependencies from new fork

I’m new to Gradle and Android development, but I have a React Native project that relies on the “react-native-sqlite-2 (GitHub - craftzdog/react-native-sqlite-2: SQLite3 Native Plugin for React Native for iOS, Android, Windows and macOS.)” library, which itself depends on “sqlite-android” (specifically version 3.36.0). I want to make some custom changes to the “sqlite-android (GitHub - requery/sqlite-android: Android SQLite support library)” library and then incorporate those changes into my own fork of the “react-native-sqlite-2” repository.


dependencies {
  implementation "com.github.requery:sqlite-android:3.36.0"

Could you kindly guide me through the steps to achieve this? I’d greatly appreciate your assistance in making these modifications and integrating them into my project.
I’ve already tried google and stackoverflow from past 2 days. I’m clueless at this point.

This is what the ./gradlew build throws up -

Could not determine the dependencies of task ':react-native-sqlite-2:compileDebugAidl'.
> Could not resolve all task dependencies for configuration ':react-native-sqlite-2:debugCompileClasspath'.
   > Could not find com.github.hashg:sqlite-android:gradle-simple-SNAPSHOT.
     Required by:
         project :react-native-sqlite-2

Where is the rest of the error message?
