By request from other overworked developers on this forum, I proudly present Develop NOW! - A Basic Manual to Help ANYONE Begin Android Development.
Now you can learn how to build your own ROMs, Kernels, and MODs!!!!
This manual is Primarily made for HERCULES T-989 and T-989D Owners! If you have another device you will have to change some of these instructions to your device name instead!
Develop NOW! currently has 40 pages! From these pages you can learn…
- How to set up an android build environment
- Basic Development Terminology
- How to build with Linaro
- How to tweak ROM manifests to build your own ROM.
- Kernel building (Basic)
- Flashable ZIP Creation
- Starting you own ROM
- LOTS MORE!!!!!
For Everyone – Please try to post relative questions here. If you want verification that you have the correct xml string in your manifest this would be the place to post. If you run into weird errors as you follow the manual, this would be the place to post! If you want to let me know how grateful you are for this manual you can either 1) Join my Google+ Community and write a little thank you note there 2) Click “Thanks” below this post or 3) you can send me a dollar. (Nothing says thank you like I little tip once in a while)
