    i think if making a rom is something you would like to do you should have some linux experience. Also learning how android runs real time is a big help. There is only so much you can find on the internet about building roms and alot of it does NOT carry over to the admire.

    deodexed is getting the apks to run without the odex files right?

    Well it's combining the odex files with the apk files

    would you be willing to teach me the ways, oh wise one?
    i dont have linux experience... but if learning to make a rom requires it then i need to learn that too. i dont mind reading...but im mostly a tinkerer.
    and yeah... admire cant do a lot of things.

    Hey bo , if i deodexed the stock odexed rom .... do i have to use an ext4 recovery or can i still use the rfs recovery

    rfs is fine. deodexing will not change the fs.

    OK thanks... but now it seems I'm having issues with the script ... it won't install properly
    Something about write raw 'boot error .. lol well something like that

    Assert write raw image error. Near the end of your updater script, remove:

    package_extract_file boot.img /tmp/boot.img assert(write_raw_image) /temp/boot.img boot

    Or something like that. I'm on tapatalk so I can't check :p

    So if i do that do i have to remove the boot.img from the folder it self

    Thats up to you, doesn't really matter.

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. assert(package_extract_file("boot.img", "/tmp/boot.img"),
    3.        write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img", "boot"),
    4.        delete("/tmp/boot.img"));
    5.  
    Just remove that and boot.img if you want and you'll be ok :)
    (And as you can see, I was no where close to what I said in my last post :p)

    if you remove that there will be no kernel. just an fyi. but who care if its just stock based.

    Oh ok im going to try it...





    So doesn't it need the kernel to boot properly ...because I actually got it to boot but got stuck on the android screen

    If your already on stock, then you should have no problems because you're already on the stock kernel :) Send meh or Bo the ROM and one of us will check it out :)

    use notpad++ to view it... http://www.mediafire.com/?48uzw4fkkg4ak09

    this is what builds my scripts (updater-script) , when ever it builds the rom the script is a mess and it says ext4 instead of rfs
