*** THIS IS NOT JUST ANOTHER EFFORT TO CREATE YET ANOTHER CUSTOM ROM***

Though Android is opensource, a lot of things are unknown regarding ROM development/modification. There are many custom ROMs available for Galaxy 3 (and also other phones) and lot of people are flashing them and making their phone more responsive, productive and faster; but very few people actually knew how to go about developing the ROM.

What I intend here is to find out and document correct way to build ROM for our favorite Galaxy 3, which is very popular in India.

The goal will be to develop the ROM from Android source + Drivers from stock ROM while documenting the process so that large number of people can contribute to the development.

I will shortly update the posts with what I have done.

Thanks rudolf895

I have experience in Android SDK and NDK development, but I am a noob when it comes to ROM development. Thats why this effort.

I have fetched android source using repo as well as I have also downloaded source for I5801 from Samsung open source website. After this I will look into extracting drivers from stock ROM and successfully compiling it for Galaxy 3.
