Lightbulb Original Android Development vs. Android Development

A question for understanding forums selection:

For me is "Original Android Development" that the ROM based on Stock ROM from Device, for example : HTC M8 with Sense6 is stock and original and HTC without Sense6 like CM is Android Development

Is this right or give me please another explanation!?

Thx in advance

No, you have it reversed. Also kernels, recoveries and stuff tends to go into original. This should be mentioned in a sticky in one or both of these subforums.

The wording is bad, the distinction arbitrary, and all over it's a terrible idea.

This has been brought up a few times.

Original Android development can have both sense roms and non sense roms eg CM, recoveries and kernels. The difference is the OP of the ROM has had to have made a large contribution to make the rom, recovery or kernel different to anything else of its type. This means that there has to be a large number of features that are unique to that rom and not offered in other roms.

Also any builds that go into OAD forums should be official builds by official maintainers as well. All non official builds should be in AD forum.

This would apply to kernels recoveries etc as well.

Edit here is the link to the main page that says what can go in to OAD and what cant: Introducing Original Development Forums for More Devices
