And what I mean, no android kitchen and those kind of tools. Simple from the start where you are forced to do all the work yourself.

Ah, thank you. I will look into that.

Small problem I (probarly) have. I also have a mediatek phone (main phone) and I heard there are a few problems when you want to make roms for those. It was due to lack of released source or something?

that is true, the kernel of mediatek has problems with Cyanogenmod so its a little hard. mediatek kinda sucks to develop for.

always start with modifying the stock rom, every few changes you make you should check out if they work and repeat that process.

Hmm I'm pretty sure there should be a few more things, go to CyanogenMod and download a random file for whatever phone and check out those files. Make sure its a stable and not nightlie
