Awesome job! I'm starting right now with developing (so expect me from now haha)

I got a question: what Ubuntu distro would you recommend? I heard each version has its own issues while setting up the whole thing.

I just want a stable base to develop smoothly.
Anything upto 12.04 will get the job done

You don't need to resize each image just the set the resizer to half of original resolution

y r u getting confused....just follow the procedure in one of those guides....
u really dont need to resize anything...just phone app and launcher like TW need to be resized...rest all launchers adapt to all dpi's..
the only and main issue while porting is phone force close and ril issue. The dialer buttons are made for mdpi and not for our resolution, so solve dat and resize launcher, patch ril... u r done with ur port

It won't work terbuchet looks up for aapt configuration in device base.... So the port will boot definitely but it will be oversized don't take my words see it for yourself... Ps if posted wrong answer...
