    I am currently making a stock rom, making sure everything i compile works, and i'm gonna test it out tomorrow, and after that i'll start working on adding features to the kernel like new cpu governors, as of right now i just have deodexed apks, waiting for my new connect to test it on.

    ok i keep my eye on craigslist and once in a while theres a phone with a missing sim or a bad esn or such. does any developer need a phone to get started?

    Great news! Any plans for LV kernel at this point (getting a little ahead I know with no custom roms yet)? Thanks for working on this! The deodexed apostle alone will be nice. I have no skill in this area but I'd be happy to test if that helps.

    If someone can get a device tree forked for this phone ics will not be far off ;) maybe even cm9 I have a little bit of experience from the optimistic and would be interested in helping if any help is needed.

    you mean my cwm files?

    so far ive seen markolo and data head spending hours in teh irc channel talking about roms and such. they may be learning but they are doing a damn fine job

    Is that the source code for the phone? If not then we need to fork it onto github and we can go from there on ics and or cm9! Ill have to jump into irc here soon and see what's going on lol. I may not know a whole lot. But I know a bit that might be helpful lol

    no its not teh source code for the phone, its the device profile you use to make cwm. but its the closest youll get to get anything building/booting.

    and its been on github this entire time. everything i do is opensource

    The source code for the phone is in LG's opensource site under LGMS840, I believe this is a good starting point if you're gonna do anything relatiung to CM9 and ICS, but i believe it will take a good amount of experience to get CM9 to work on this thing as the Source code we have are GB.

    It'll help for sure, but I'm doubtful very much at this point. I did read about the latest Adreno 220 driver for ICS having a noticeable performance boost though so I'm hopeful to see us with that much later on (especially with ROM and kernel development still having a little ways to go first with even GB). Good to know it is available though.

    not really, its changes in the kernel mainly, tho those would help in the final product, just not a most have to get ICS/CM9 running.

    I will prolly attempt a CM9 port for the Connect, but I need to get past the issues I have with my esteem port b4 I try another device. Well thats unless it has ICS stock, then it shouldnt be as hard a task lol.

    with the exception of the kernel src, the rest is about useless ;)

    oh and I have compiled CM7 for it ;)

    Cm7 would even be nice to have for this phone until cm9 is available

    I want to begin building a rom but i dont know anything about developing, does anyone know a good place to start? I have an old galaxy indulge and want to begin testing on that, but ultimately i want to make a rom for my current phone which is the Connect 4g.
