Since you've made it through the setup (I assume). For your stock Rom, (in recovery) run a nandroid, now clear all your data (factory reset) and run another nandroid (just something I like to do to ensure no data will be pulled... Probably not necessary but it gives you your revert to (with data) and your (clean) build nandroid. Now take your build nandroid and open it up with a file manager (ie es explorer). You will want to grab two files from this nandroid... boot.img & system.img (may have called it system.yaffs2.img but just grab it and rename it to system.img). Ok now you have your ingredients for your first build. Connect the phone to your computer (USB storage) pull the two files across to the folder in your home directory that says put Rom here. You are ready to start cooking. Start the kitchen and use those 2 files to build your working folder. You can also try out the various features dsixda has built in. For example lets say you make your Rom rooted, you add apps2sd support, and just for giggles you deodex too. Now any additional changes you want to make can be done in the working folder. So, for our figurative example lets say you wanted to delete flashlite and add a full flash player, download the apk (think there are links to flash player or new market in the app & theme forum), delete flaslite.apk from the system folder in your working directory and paste your full flash player.apk in... Ok you've done all the editing to your working folder that you want to do (lots that you can change, but you want to have a working build and you don't have to make any changes to working folder if you just want to go through the options and read what the kitchen can cook in automatically; as you gain knowledge, you will edit your working folder more and more by hand, but that time will come). Ok start back up your kitchen and make sure all the options you wish have been completed (option 10 I think). Then if it all looks good, cook it (option 99); Also make sure you convert the update script back to updater. Go to the output folder and there you will have your flashable Rom. And thus concludes the lesson for today ;)
