Post [Q] LG Recovery Rom/Rom Making from source code for LG Phoenix P505

I was wondering I'm looking to get into android development and I have a few questions that I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction?

I'm looking to make custom roms for the LG Phoenix P505 from scratch or use someones to learn how to? Tutorials or books or something would help, I'm not familiar with the code but I wanna learn so any help would be great, I'll be going into Computer Engineering Technology at a local college so I'm looking for a little head start in some areas.

I understand that a recovery menu or something around those guide lines is needed to use those custom roms? Is there one out for the P505 or is there a compatible one made from a previous rom?

I have the source code for the P505 its up on the LG open source website, can someone tell me what my next step would be?

url for LG Open Source: " lg.com/global/support/opensource/opensource.jsp"

It would be nice, yeah... seeings how theres a fair amount of developers here,
even tellings us if someone is trying would be nice. I wouldn't mind
customizing my phone a bit more than what stock can do. So a shout
out to the developers, please let us know if anything is going on?
Or is everyone ditching this phone and going for the Thrive?

Any update on this?
I bought a Pheonix as my first android phone and would like to learn how to develop roms for it.

Unfortunately not that I know of, I haven't done any recent searching but yeah like you, the phoenix was my first phone too. Guess perhaps the devs don't wanna do anything for this phone?

Same here. There seems to be progress being made in this thread with the prepaid counterpart but this forum's pesky 10 post minimum doesn't allow me to post in that thread to glean some more information.

instructions can be found here (i believe for your scenario you only need to do steps 3 and 5 and your ready to go):
