I understand this guide is for compiling from any CyanogenMod and CyanogenMod source-based source for any phone. I have two questions:
  1. What steps would need to change (or to be added) if we were compiling from the master branch of the AOSP instead? I can't seem to find a tutorial of how to do it. I am not being able to connect the dots from different sources (being in a bit of an hurry doesn't help it...).
  2. I want to build a custom ROM to a device and need to know what I need to ask the vendors for. I understand I might need to create modules and devices for the HAL (and something else? answers to question 1 might help on this) because it is not an officially supported device. What do I need to ask the vendor for and in which format? Do providers usually make drivers available in the format Google does?

I have already spent a lot of time looking for answers here, at the official AOSP page and all over the web, reading and watching videos. There's always something I don't understand. This guide seems to be a very nice starting point. I would be very thankful if someone could help me on this one! I am a software engineer, don't worry about some technical stuff. I just do not have any experience, yet, with embedded systems.

Just search proprietary_vendor_lg/samsung/motorola or any other phone on google or best known themuppets on guthub.
If you have any custom roms for your device, you can also look into the devs github, there you should also find the vendor.
