    I greatly enjoy learning as much as I can about everything...I specifically enjoy computer related material...I basically can learn anything in a short amount of time...I recently turned my interests towards building custom kernels and I am gathering as much information as I currently can...I want to build a kernel for the LG Esteem and I need help...I just want to hear your opinions...Sooooo, I'll list some questions...Thank you for your answers in advance...

    1. Best Linux OS (for android sdk and compiling...arch? haha)?*
    2. most RECENT guides or creating custom kernels?**
    3. requests?
    4. Is this really wanted at all?

    * 'Best' as in compatible, lightweight, and stable (I don't want to start an OS war)

    ** Notice the plural for guide? I want as much as you can give me

    Thank you, Daazed

    Edit: Shit, forgot to ask for source on ZVE kernel or means to obtain

    old ubuntu or xfce ubuntu are fast, arch if you don't mind going through the long installation, and for requests well the 2.3.4 kernel in the esteem is shit, but it's be cool to have better multitasking but not allowing many apps to be open, like closing the apps that were open the longest or something, probably better to make one from scratch though lol or from a pure AOSP 2.3.4 kernel, I think there's a lot of guides over on XDA so I'd check there and yeah I'd want some custom kernels

    That is the restore file for LGPNST correct? (haven't played with that much) What I'm actually looking for is the uncompiled source code.. Like what is found here.. https://www.lg.com/global/support/opensource/opensourceList?types=ALL&search=ms910 Unfortunately they only go up to ZVE.. Thanks for trying though.. I just wrote LG an email asking about it..

    Also would ROM matter for USB OTG ?
