Hello, fellow Evo LTE brethren. I have grown weary and quite impatient in waiting for different things to be released (in this case, a custom Sense kernel), so I am going to pick up the torch and try to figure this one out for myself.

Currently, I am updating my Ubuntu base with the required packages, and possibly even a few more that aren't needed or outdated. I'm doing my required readings to learn the ins and outs, and also about the different rules and regulations regarding cherry picking, kanging, tweaking, and the sort.

Any advice/assistance/direction is appreciated, and I will request this thread to be moved to the Dev section when/if it is finally ready for the public, or I might make a new thread, depending on the size of this one.

Just a heads up you will need to fix some stuff to get it to compile. I compiled it and got it booting on sense 6 just need to see if I can get sound and cam working. Will keep you guys up to date with my fixes.

I believe he is talking about building a custom kernel.

Indeed, I was. It is noted in the OP as well.

Just a quick update. Kernel building is a lot of reading! I finally got my file paths to straighten out, and I am making progress in building my first kernel. It will only be stock...I need to get it to boot first, then I will worry about other things later.

*Currently trying to understand github.
