Hey Folks,
I'm contributing this tutorial video for people that want to make an Android kernel!

Step-by-step tutorial:
http://ohheyitslou.blogspot.com/2011/09/ohheyitslou-custom-android-kernel-guide.html

Things that are needed:
Just check the vid out!

Part 1: Configure, Compile the kernel
youtube.com/watch?v=IV4jhXWc7AE

Part 2: Install your kernel
youtube.com/watch?v=gjN8x8Pfcl0

Enjoy it! :laugh::p

Caution: Commands in the video are for Fedora not for Ubuntu, Ubuntu commands are in the step by step guide, above!

Extra:
- If you want to give your kernel extra features like new governors or overclocking, check this guide on XDA-University out!
http://xda-university.com/as-a-developer/adding-features-to-your-kernel
- Keep in mind you need to share your source after you've compiled the kernel due the GPLv3 licence. (GPL?)

I give the full credits to:
- OhHeyItsLou (Youtube)

Please rate 5 stars and press Thanks!

Ported a ROM for experience sake, but this is what I have been looking for. If a complete newb like myself can do it anybody can.
Will post results in a few weeks. Busy, Busy, Busy.

Thanks for the tutorial.

It should work on Ubuntu 12.04.
BTW For earlier than Android 4.0, 32-bit is enough. But if you want to compile a kernel for a more recent version like Android 4.1 and 4.2 you'll need a 64-bit machine!
Keep it in mind! :p

I compile ROMs so I should be good. I got a x64 machine with 12GB of RAM. Just seems like every other guide had the wrong commands or didn't have all the commands. Thanks for all the help!! :)
