    o_O that's quite a task your taking on. It's quite difficult to understand especially if your new to it. Not to depress you, I'm just saying it will take some time. I suggest you start at the google AOSP page and poke around there to get an idea of things: Welcome to Android | Android Open Source

    Here's some other links that will help:
    https://developer.android.com/index.html
    https://developer.android.com/guide/index.html
    https://developer.android.com/resources/index.html

    Hope that helps :)

    By the way android apps are coded in Java (however I herd you can implement objective C in them). Heh.. you sounded kinda like me when I wanted to start to get into it. You can follow that here: http://androidforums.com/warp-all-things-root/491932-how-port-rom.html

    best thing to do is just pick a project and jump into it

    I think trying to tackle CM9 may be too much for you, until you get more experience


    here is an idea for a good starting project for you

    port the N850 (aka Fury aka Sean) ROM to the Warp

    it is Android 2.3.6

    so if you succeed, you will be giving us an upgrade

    I will try to help you when you get stuck, but I am not going to spoon feed you


    Use some of my Return to stock ROMS zip files as an example, but replace the stock recovery in it with CWM recovery

    here is a system dump of the N850

    this zip is NOT flash-able, it is just a dump



    N850V1.0.0B14_system_dump.zip

    take your time on it, the most important thing is that you learn how ROMS work and such


    and if you could post detailed posts of what you are doing, and what files you are changing and stuff like that, other people will be able to help you, and other people will be able to learn from your posts

    I am getting interested in this too and my brother who works on Linux for a living gave me some pointers concerning it. He was adamant about me learning Java and C before even touching Android itself :afraid: . Regardless, I think I can do it. Android and the ability to modify it is a god-send for computers. :driver:

    If you want to later on you can port the rom from HTC evo v :p

    Though I think you'd still have to port the HTC kernel to the phone if im not mistaking..

    I suggested the one v because its ics, HTC, and has a res of 480 x 800 which is what our phone is.

    Yeah by no means should you take this as your next project. It's quite an advanced task to do something like this
