How to start with custom roms ? First of all i want to say that i'm 100% noob i don't have any knowledge at all . All i've doing for last 3 yrs is flashing roms and themes almost every single day ,but now i want to go to next level i want to start "cooking" roms and writing apps for Android.
What kind of books i suppose to read abour Java ? or about C++ ?
Please guide which programing language is the best for android.

mr. budden as for as i concern it depends upon your personal interest that what kind of apps you are going to make.. you can get started with the app called "AIDE" from google play store :thumbup:

If you're looking on to building ROM from source you should definitely start from here. Android Chef Central contains most tutorials on ROM building. You can also refer to XDA University.

If you're looking for coding Android apps, starting from java will be good as most apps are written in Java. Do coding exercises to attain skills and logics. Time, dedication and passion is the most important things that matters if you get into these. And 34 years is not at all old for learning stuffs
