well, this is going to be a rather long explanation, but i felt i should share so i could let some in on how this all came about and how it was put together. maybe you'll try it for yourself
i was determined to build a ROM from scratch with dsixda's Kitchen. in order to do this, you need a system.img and cache.img. system.img holds almost everything needed for /system. cache.img holds CSC stuff as well as some carrier stuff that you don't really need. both of these images were pulled from the Odin TAR that can be found on Sammobile. i put them in Linux, mounted them, and copied over the files i needed. the next step was to de-odex most of the files. you can do this with the Kitchen, but i do not. it is because of this that my files will never exactly match another devs. after de-odexing all of the system files, i then loaded them into the Kitchen. the Kitchen itself is rather self-explanatory so i won't go into too much detail with that other than i used 0.223_rev8. i'm not sure if the newer ones work or not but i know this one does work with the jfltetmo variant. after that, the rest is history. init.d scripts were taken from across xda from sources that required no recognition (that i'm aware) but i'll be happy to give credit should any of those guys happen to visit my thread. updater-script and update-binary are directly from the Kitchen with the exception of a few minor tweaks including added symlinks and intro/outro of the ROM.
Apollyon was named after a dear friend of mine who recently passed while trying to save someone else. a true hero. may you rest in peace, Antonio Thorpe.
