Since you are using a newer version of GIT, you will want the --recursive option
added to the ./scripts/switch_submodules_to_head_and_clean script. (replace
'drankin@' with your user or delete it completely) I use:

git reset --hard HEAD
git clean -dxf
git pull
git reset --hard HEAD
git clean -dxf
sed -i "s/system@/drankin@/g" .gitmodules
git submodule init
git submodule update --recursive
git submodule foreach --recursive "git checkout master"
git submodule foreach --recursive "git pull"
git checkout -- .gitmodules
