Hey glad you and others are looking Into this! I hope to someday find the time to pick up this phone again. I still have it and do plan to but have just been far too busy to sit in front of a PC for an extended amount of time unless I'm doing homework, have hardly seen the PC view of xda in like 6 months!
Anyway here's a thread I made for a different phone but the 6th or so post also has references to a lot of guides I found helpful in the past, a few even I made
For the most part this thread is useless here as like I said its for another device but the links should help any aspiring dev get a start
Best of luck all! Hope this phone finally takes the next big step!
