I have been learning how to work in the android environment for a little while now, and want to move onto learning how to create roms from AOSP rather than other peoples existing work. This would allow a lot more freedom. The current dream is to create a JB 4.1.2 rom from AOSP, then release it as a base rom to allow anyone else to rip it up just as they want. Once developed it could be used to show examples of how to use apktool and others to customise your own rom.

Potentially the process could be documented here so that other people could build there own. I don't know how many people still use this phone, but it would be a good learning process.

So is anyone else interested? Currently I know next to nothing so we would be starting from there

Awesome, as a progress report I have so far managed to download and install the sdk, with JB4.1.2 APIs. Next I'm going to read, this is going to be a nice slow burner.

Thanks Bratusm,
I am still dreaming of a Vanilla for as many Androids versions as I can muster, however I have been informed it is a complete nightmare for our device, so the first step I am taking will be learning to build CM10, if I can get anything like the stability Lloir and Maxwen got, I'll use that learning to go forward, either with a Slim build or another. I doubt I will release much work as it will fall short of what others have achieved, but I will be available to help others as I learn along the way. I am already thinking of adding a what is tutorial for the SlimRom I've messed with, along with a guide to apks compiling and decompiling. The idea is to make an easy route for anyone who wants to learn what I have so far, and then they can take it and smash up other peoples roms to there hearts contents just like me
