That was probably for Froyo but maybe it does. I'm thinking if someone could get a custom recovery working, we could root it by just flashing Superuser.

1. How to sync htc kernel sources (2.6.35.10) with upstream linux kernel 2.6.35.14 to apply newer bfs patches? And where should i look for various patches (like OC patches for example)
3. Compiled bcm4329.ko never workes for me, gotta stick to stock one. What am i missing?
2. I've managed to adjust HTC Wildfire Cyanogenmod device config to compile CWM and CM.7.1.0 for HTC Wildfire, however builds are troubled with various bugs (framebuffer in cwm and not working touchscreen in CM). What is the correct way to debug various parts of ported Android, and again - what am i missing.
3. Where should i look for some documentation about making configs for android build system - for example what TARGET_LIBAGL_USE_GRALLOC_COPYBITS := true mean, and is there complete list of these defines.
Thank you in advance

I'd like to try and become a developer, mainly because my Samsung Droid Charge hasn't received any AOSP love yet and I want to try and help the dev(s) that are working on it, also I would like to make my own rom. But I have no idea where to start, and I have questions like do I need Linux, do I need to/where do I learn terminal commands, how does smali/baksmali work, how to compile/decompile, how does github work, what is a toolchain, do I need to know how to code, do I need to know any languages, what is Eclipse...stuff like that. I'm a complete noob at this kind of stuff and I feel it's a bit far out of my reach but I'm willing to give it a shot if I can get a decent start. I realize it won't just happen overnight, I have the patience to keep learning and doing research to figure it out, but I would like help getting started.

@samuel2706: I have a Droid x2 and as you it has a locked bootloader. I also have a Galaxy Tab 7" which does NOT have a locked bootloader. I've been in Android for a very very long time, I am an experience flasher and rooter, but I want to get into the development side.

Could you direct me to what I need to read up on and learn about and do for me to become a developer? I would like to develop from my devices, I know that a locked bootloader steeply limits what I can do, that's why I am more interested in developing for my tablet. I mean a lot of things interest me. I look at my logcat on my devices, I see errors, and I just want to go in and fix them, I want to make my device smooth as butter, lol.

I'm also interested in finding an exploit of some sort for my Droid x2 so that I can crack it. There has gotta be a way to crack it open.

Thanks!!!

Thumbs up Stock rooted Gingerbread for HTC Inspire
Hey Samuel. Thanks for doing this. I got my Inspire about a weeks ago, rooted it the day I got it, and have been lurking these forums since. Saw this opportunity to ask a n00b question, and registered. So, I'm looking for a stock, rooted Gingerbread ROM. It was suggested I don't return my phone to stock, update, and then re-root. Not sure why, but I'll listen. Thanks in advance, and thanks for doing this.
