i have a question that is probably going to be a bit noobish....
I'm guessing (based on what I know from reading over the months) that the source code isn't tied to a particular phone, but a factory image is.
How do you take a source code release and compile it to work on any phone? Is it possible because (on this phone) Samsung already developed the kernel and Verizon already gave us radios? I'm not looking for a step by step development, but im trying to get a broader understanding how the updates work on the two different phones.
I understand leaks and I'm running the stock 4.0.4 IMM30B, but i imagine the new code has quite a few improvements.
