Sorry for my english
I'm not being sarcastic or mean.. No, I can't. It's not that I don't want to, it's that I'm not capable. I tried with someone in this (or perhaps another) thread. I'm not a good teacher, as I don't have patience.

That's a hard question to answer. I learned back in the days when you had to know hardware to write software. My first programming lang was assembly. I learned "C" as a way to shortcut writing code - I'd write the stuff in C, and then hand-optimize the generated assembly.

For the majority of my life (I'm 41), I've been developing software, and I tend to enjoy life more when I'm closer to the hardware (which is why I enjoy kernels, but hate java.)

Where did I learn? Well.. I remember when I was about 12 years old, I was carrying a stack of punch cards at my school and dropped them. They got all out of order and someone ripped me a new one. They made me put them back in order, but I was happy just sequencing them - I had to understand what they were, what they meant, etc. I learned the basics of software development that day.

From that point forward, I learned by diving into the deep end and figuring it out as I went along. My brain seems to work well like that (at least for software/hardware - not so much in other areas.)

Oh, and it's also my profession.

Gary

Thanks, I'm not sure my brain is big enough to learn Java but I'm going to try anyways. I'm a miserable machine mechanic at domino sugar and need a hobby and hopefully one day a way out! Just bough Java for dummys and this is where I'm going to start. I wish I grew up with a smart friend or new someone else that had the same interest. All my friends are dummys and can't move music from there computer to there phone
Look I remember periods and new sentences for ya

Here are some of the tutorials I've found on building kernels, its a lot harder than people think, well at least for me as I'm linux illiterate. Took me a weekend to get a linux box up and running to the point of connecting to github but then ran out of free time. The android central link is a little dated, the dev was building for the HTC Hero that came out 3 years ago but its still has some useful information.

The link to Google's site would be the one to follow for building for the Nexus as that is what the site is meant for.

http://source.android.com/source/building-kernels.html

I was trying to follow the one from Android Central for the GTAb as source code is available from Samsung. The first step for me would be to learn how to build a Honeycomb kernel from source then move on to an AOSP kernel for CyanogenMod or MIUI. Only problem is a lack of time and/or commitment as this is just another hobby and not a priority right now.

Hi Gary, I know your busy learning your new device. Was wondering if your still developing for us? Please don't shoot.
Take care.

There isn't much to do. My kernel for HC on this device is extremely stable for me (been about 2 months since I've rebooted it) with most of the samsung bloatware frozen. Unless samsung actually releases the wifi source, I don't see anymore need for developing this kernel.

Like everyone else, I'm waiting for ICS. Then I'll be waiting for the source release.
