[GUIDE] How to make your OWN CUSTOM ROM
Hi friends !
Many of you asked me to include different languages to NEO ROM. As I have been unable to do so, So I've come up with links to different guides/tutorials for MODs that are used in NEO ROM.
By following these guides you will be able to make your own fully functional CUSTOM ROM with various MODs.
I used the same links to build my own ROM (NeO RoM).
(1) Basic features of a CUSTOM ROM includes: deodexed, rooted, zipaligned, init.d scripts support, busybox, custom bootanimation, bootsound, vold.fstab, build.prop tweaks etc.
These features can be implemented in any ROM using dsixda's Android Kitchen
to know how to use kitchen for making custom ROMs.
Just grab .tar file for any of stock ROM that you wish to use as base build.
It will give you a CWM flashable zip of your ROM. However there may be some problems with updater-script.
So before flashing the ROM to your device, upload this file here, I'll look for problems & modify for you.
(2) Next modification that you can make to your ROM is theming.
Basic theming includes changing icons, fonts, transitions, transparency, status bar mod, quickpanel icons mod etc
Use UOT kitchen
for theming purpose.
video on how to use UOT kitchen.
(3) For advanced MODs, you must know how to compile, decompile APKs, comparing apks using NOTEPAD++ & winmerge tool
Follow these guides to setup android sdk & apktool:
(4) Lets start adding advanced MODs to our ROM:
a) simplest one CRT OFF ANIMATION CRT OFF
b) LIDROID 14 toggle MOD 14 toggle
c) CRT ON Animation CRT ON
d) SWIPE to remove notifications
e) ICS style settings.apk
I'll add more links to the other MODs later.
Before that you should try to implement the above MODs in your ROM.
Post here your problems, errors etc, I'll provide assistance to you all.
Why depend on DEVs when you can yourself make your OWN ROM?
Believe me, NEO ROM is the result of all these links/tutorials/guides.
So, start making your OWN first custom ROM !!!
