[Q] Need some guidance for developing a ROM
I currently own a GT-i9100T (Australian), but I have installed an i9100 ROM on it, so I guess they are the same models.
Firstly, I want to develop a ROM for GT-I9100 phones, but I need some guidance. I need a clean, booting kernel that will work, regardless of which custom ROM I will develop.
Secondly, I want to know if there is way to test my built ROM. Maybe dualboot? The last phone I had, I developed CM10 for it, and to test it I booted the ROM from an sdcard, by changing the locations of /system, /cache, /data in the boot image. So, is there a way to boot from the sdcard for this phone as well?
OK. So, to summarise it, I am asking for the following:
- A clean kernel that can be used to develop any ROM, and the ROM will boot.
- A dualbooting method to be able to test the new ROM. Possibly booting from sdcard.
I will look more deeply into the 'booting from sdcard' question myself, but I am still looking for guidance regarding it.
