    hello all,

    im growing very interested in ROMs as of late. im even flirting with the idea of making one for my personal phone. please point me to a link or article where i may read and learn some basics. i have built a linux machine, and i started to prep my machine following the steps on the source.android.com site but their repos seem to be down. thats as far as i go with that.

    i bought a C programming book and set up a compiler on my windows laptop just so i can study on the weekend.

    i just downloaded the "ice cream sandwich" dump from Jerry and i have little idea of what to do with it?????

    okay so i got the entire source code to download, that took about two hours.

    i compiled the code but ive yet figured out how to run the Android emulator.

    i signed up to an Android code building google group. (this is turning out to be invaluable)

    oh.....i found a sweet video by a company Marakana > marakana.com



    once i figure out this emulator part ill have more to report document.

    another video i found

    P.S. To that person out there a lot like me. "I won't leave you out there in the dark. Ima take you into the light with me."
