[Q] ATTN Devs & PRO Users: Good Place To Start Learning?
So check this out. Who's gonna help me get a leg up and start learning the real stuff now that I have the basics down pat. I have been flashing these great themes and Marvelous Roms and just started to get down correlations between bases and ports etc... Although I still don't know in depth about these matters - I have learned if you don't port - you come up short.
I am working on figuring out how to replace my boot animation in the HoneyHD theme, and how to take that and take out the Sense Parts that aren't available in NoSensi, and finally merging that into NoSensi so that instead of flashing four times - or relying on a recovery, I can make an assembled and flashable Rom package that is perfect from the first flash. Guess I should have asked Victoryo (NoSensi OP), but these aren't even really any of my works, and I am sure a Dev has plenty other stuff to take care of. I know that there is so much more to this than I realize, but every step I learn makes that much clearer how the processes from bootloader to splash to boot to Themed Awesomness and Ultimately Rom Superiority actually work and integrate together. I start school in a month, with a declared major in computer programming, and until a few months ago didn't know diddly about Roms, Kernels, Rooting, or even Android for that matter... So where do I start learning? Or rather, what would be the best way to expand on the knowledge I gain here everyday at XDA, and please be mindful that until my school money is in, I am computerless...
Everything is Inspire Acquired, and Edited, Flashed and Composed from.... Thanks to all the kickarse peeps who remember asking themselves "Where in the world do I begin?"
