[Q] Start Theming without Device
Hey guys/girls! ;D
For the past few months, I've wanted to theme Android devices. Not just create a theme, but fully customise a ROM; so that a user can install a different ROM; since my customisations will run deep.
My first theme is to port perfectly the TouchWiz UX, since for some devices a "perfect" port does not exist. However the problem is that I don't have that specific device. So I'm stuck, and have been looking for ways around this; but no luck sink decided to ask this question to you guys/girls; whom are experts in this area.
Would it be possible for me to customise a device without actually owning the device? Can I not just use the SDK to view my development? If so, would it also be possible to customise a pre-packaged ROM? For example, develop/theme on top of CyanogenMod; and still view my customisations as I debug them on my computer, still without the device?
Or am I put of hopes? Do I need the device?
Sorry for so many questions, and for a long post. I sincerely appreciate your help. Thank you very much.
If anyone is also interested in an answer to this question (even if you're seeing this years ahead), feel free to post here to bump the thread.
