    I know of many instances where unsupposrted devices have gotten versions of Android and ROMS built for them, including our Optimus V; for example, tdm's source-build CM9.



    How exactly do they do this? Is it THEORETICALLY as simple as building for a different device (albeit similar, probably MSM7627 or MSM 7600 since I dont know the exact phones that have this board) and overwriting with the OVs proprietary files?

    Idk how tdm did it for the ov, but for the g1 I just took the cm7 device and vendor files and used that as a starting point for building cm9. I looked at changes tdm made and changes for the htc hero as a reference on how to fix the cm7 files for cm9.

    Yeah, I really want to learn how to at least build CM7. This is all such hard work, and Im glad to do it if i can figure out how but Im completely lost.

    There's a building your own rom thread to get you started. You'll need Linux you can multi boot if your not too comfortable in it.

    I kinda dont trust myself to start a dual boot because I am afraid I will mess something up and lose all my files D:


    I have a Linux Vm and Im fine with using it :P
    Ive seen several things on makign ROMS



    Also, could I build CM9 (How exactly do I do CM9-I m aware on Android AOSP code but not the CM9 code building from source) and inject the Quattrimus kernel into it?

    I've only done a few private cm7 builds for myself and they were more or less just pure IHO.

    I've never really used it... I run Linux Mint mainly. You can use a virtual machine but it'll be slower and you'll want to have a pretty powerful computer.

    There's no quick way about it. Your going to be in for some reading

    I do have a good computer, but through my VM the internet just is SOOOO SLOWWWW.
    I'd much rather have it normally run as a standalone OS.

    On Windows my internet is fine, I have 100Mbps bandwith and 15/5 Down/Up (Advertised- Truth is usually 4-8Down, 1-5 up)


    Welp. Installing Wubi.
    Wish me luck.

    On github.com/thebigq there is a local_manifest.xml that you use and it will fork all of the files for you. But if you are going to build, start out with gingerbread.

    If you plan on releasing anything, please read the sticky at the top regarding developer rules. PM me if you have any questions.

    As far as Wubi goes, you install it just like a Windows program (and uninstall it the same.) It's awesome.

    I was going to suggest maybe recovery mode-fix broken packages?

    To further along what thewraith420 said:

    Try these in order. It might fix some broken packages if you have any. (Try recovery mode with networking).

    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    sudo apt-get -f install

    No, it literally wont boot up. I select Ubuntu from my boot menu and after the purple screen it either goes spastic or goes black.
    Win 7 still works
