Okay, I started this project about a month ago and I never really got into it. Now that I have some spare time I decided to continue.

I'm writing a program to download the latest CyanogenMod or TheOfficial Nexus ROM. After that you will choose what you want in the ROM (eg. wifi tether, Amazon MP3, Spare Parts)

Once you decide what you want in the ROM the program will remove whatever you do not want and rebuild it for you. After you rebuild it, it will give you the option allow the program to move it to your sdcard and even reboot your phone into recovery where you can perform a Nandroid and apply the ROM yourself (I will not write the program to apply the ROM because it's not really a good idea).

The program will be free of charge and you can download it and install it directly on your computer. (Windows only, sorry)

Now this sounds a LOT easier than it really is so if anybody has any experience with C# let me know if you want to help. Send me an email at [myscreenname] gmail com. Please do not email or chat me unless you're wanting to help develop the code. When I need testers I will let you know.

Q & A
Quote:

Q: How is this different than Modaco's ROM kitchen?
A: Mine is software, installs on your computer with updates, and it will be free.
It's not exactly the same thing but close.

No hard feelings Modaco, don't take it personal.

Q: When will it release?
A: I can't tell you a date or a specific time but I'm working on it and I will post it the minute I think it's stable enough to pass out.

Q: Will it work on Linux or Mac?
A: Originally no, but I've had some ideas come in about Mac so I'll let you know


Since this will be free of charge I will take donations [no obligation, donate as you please]

I was waiting on this question.

Free (no need to be a paid member of somewhere) and it's not a web app.

Funny because I use linux as my main OS but I have more experience writing software for Windows.
