Yes I'm aware of the extract-files.sh. There is an unzip too, but this is designed to extract working proprietary files from a CM7 ROM for your device. It doesn't work taking them from non-cm7 roms. Maybe you'll be lucky but from my experience it has never worked. The CM guides all say you must have CM running on the device first.

To be honest, learning development whilst trying to build the first rom for a new device is particularly difficult. The latter really should only be done by experienced developers. I've been developing a while but not at that level. I do not believe I would be able to take source and get it working on a device completely on my own.

Best of luck though, please keep us updated.
