I'm a rom and kernel developer since my Galaxy S Plus. Now our devices are more complex than before and making a rom alone is very difficult! I think that a team should be better! So, if you think that you should take a part of this team, check requirements!


Quote:

Requirements:

-ROM:
You must know how android works. For example, you should know that all apps are system>app folder or in system>priv-app folder!
You must know how to make a flashable zip. META-INF folder? updater-script file? Do you know what these words mean?
You must know how to write updater-script and optionally, aroma-config (Aroma Installer)
You should know how to use paint.net to make some graphical changes
You should know how to edit build.prop file

-APPS:
You should know how to decompile and recompile apk files (system apps)
You should know how to deodex system apps
You should know how to edit language strings located in apk's xml files (optional)
You should know how to make an app (only for app developer)

-KERNEL:

You must know what's that
You should know how to add governors, schedulers and other file (only for kernel developer)
You should know how to compile a kernel (only for kernel developer)
You should know how to edit ramdisk (only for kernel developer)

-EXTRA (optional):
You should know how to build a rom from source (like CyanogenMod from Github)
You should know how to build a kernel from source
You should be able to make a theme (only for graphic designer)


At the moment, these are needed people (at least one each category, two is great!):

ROM DEVELOPER: AlbertoSONIC(me), .......
KERNEL DEVELOPER: AlbertoSONIC, .......
GRAPHICS DESIGNER: AlbertoSONIC (not much)
APP DEVELOPER: ......


So, if you want to take a part of this team, just reply to this thread or send me a PM

Not forget the KNOX now. All and in first the kernel is controled by Knox Bootloader:
See this and the links on : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...79&postcount=1

And the SE Linux for Android that is a complement from Kernel. See here: http://linux.die.net/man/8/selinux On this link on bottom You have many option to programing.

This is only to remember, I'm not Dev.

Good work.

Turned out that it was just a misunderstanding.
