Move to CM 11.0?
I feel that porting CM to the i8730 will take some time. In my case, building the ROM an configuring the device parameters is one thing but porting drivers is quite out of my skills.

Now that CM 11.0 already works in some devices, wouldn't it be more useful to do the porting effort directly on the 11.0 branch?

Also there is some news on the net about a possible Android 4.4 from Samsung for the i8730 in the future that would be a nice source of resources.

Best.

Yes it will. It's really frustrating right now.
Like whenever I try to build a kernel from msm8930-common, make throws me different errors with each try.

Oh, and on a side note, @jt1134 said that for CyanogenMod 10, we can use the stock kernel.
Just saying.

Error at 5
Thought I'd have another go at compiling a rom.

@ 5. Syncing up
this line
repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b cm-11.0

gives me

error.GitError: manifests var:
*** Please tell me who you are.

Run

git config --global user.email "[email protected]"
git config --global user.name "Your Name"

to set your account's default identity.
Omit --global to set the identity only in this repository.

fatal: unable to auto-detect email address (got '[email protected](none)')

Think this is something to do with the new way github is setup. Probably need any account and am pointing at the wrong directory if I want to try and build from @szezso's content

Any help appreaciated

Do what it says.
Code:
git config --global user.email "[email protected]"
git config --global user.name "Your Name"
Replace "[email protected]" with your email address and "Your Name" with your full, real name.

Then run repo sync.
