DONATE TO ME
Same progress must be done like on X10. So please be patient. First i (or somebody else who is faster) must fix X10flash, so that we are able to flash everytime to a desired version of rom.
then SPL must be hacked. We can try to port softspl from goroh. but first other progress must be made.

Hi Binary, thanks for the information. As I'm a noob in this, I'm trying to follow the complete progress. So I don't know how the progress will be and what steps need to be taken before you developers can make ROM's. But now I have an idea and i will be happy to follow the progress.

Regards

They need a tool that can flash the ROM into the device without bricking it, without that tool creating ROMs is first of all useless and secondly hard to test.

Good thinking. And it seems Bin4ry is advance and has already thought of creating ROMs at the back of his mind. And true let us go step by step.

Bin4ry, could you through some light why its hard to flash roms?
I think the hardware for rom is same between x10 and x10 mini. If you could share some knowledge on what blocks the custom flashing could help many of us to have broader understanding.

Is the device drivers or is it the software protections that keeps away from overwriting the ROMS?

Some insights required.

As far as C/C++ goes, even i can chimp in some hands, provided i know what to do, how to do and where to start from.

THIS might be of help, Viny - at least that's where I'm going to start and it seems it's a must to start there in order to understand how the AndroidOS works, and info about ROMs.
