Default (MANDATORY) Rules for Original Development


"Original" in this sense are only ROMs that are compiled from source, so AOSP, AOKP, CM Versions. Additionally SOME Sense-Roms may be inducted here, if they include truly extraordinary development. This decision is to be made by moderators.

Please post your thread in development section and then contact a moderator to move it in the Original Development section.
  • Try to keep the development forum CLEAN! No offtopic posting and no questions.
  • Use the report button in an offending post to let us mods know we need to take action. Dont take matters into your own hands!!!
  • Sources need to be posted for all kernels!!! Also for all ROMS where license demands it.
  • You need to use TAGS like [ROM] or [KERNEL] and so on as used in all dev forums throughout XDA
  • Any disputes between developers should be handled by pm. No public posting in a dev thread regarding these matters
  • Rom issues should be discussed within their respective threads
  • Thread titles should ALWAYS coincide with ROMS ALREADY AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD!!! No advance notification of incoming ROM through thread title. A changelog for the yet unreleased Rom can be included in the OP or in another post CLEARLY MARKED as EXPECTED CHANGELOG
  • Posting in the original development section means automatic ACCEPTANCE of the above Rules
All posts that are NOT about Original ROM development, or Original development in general will be closed or deleted and posters that will choose to disregard the previous guidelines will be infracted.

The title of the thread must also include this in a chronological order:
  • [Tag] - ROM, FIX, MOD etc.
  • [Date] - Date of latest version
