Default [Q] How to build AOSP rom for unsupported new device?

Hi, I have a samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 tablet but it has very small developer community so I couldn't find any AOSP roms suitable with my device. Is it possible to make an AOSP rom work on my tab or is it possible to build rom for my tab? Please help, thanks in advance.

If you have knowledge in making a whole new device tree from scratch, then it'll be possible. But you also need to find the right kernel source. For building AOSP from source you need 3 components:
  • device tree
  • kernel source
  • vendor tree

If you have these 3, you can start building.

Hi, thanks for reply. I don't know how to obtain those. Is there a noobish-written tutorial or something to help me get started? And, can I find these kernel sources, etc in the http://opensource.samsung.com/ because my device is samsung.

There is no tutorial for this. But you can take an example: https://github.com/CyanogenMod/andro..._samsung_i9300
This is a device tree for Samsung Galaxy S3 International version. You can get all these from your device itself. For vendor look here: https://github.com/TheMuppets/propri.../cm-11.0/i9300
But vendor is very easy. But I don't think you can make it as for now. I think you should first start building a ROM for a device which has all his dependencies on CM's repo. Start with this tutorial: http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexu...od-11-t2515305
