    I am trying to learn how to build my own ROM. I have found a bunch of info regarding the Android Kitchen. I have set it up in Cygwin and in an Ubuntu Terminal i run and have had no luck so far. So my question is what programs/OS do you use to build your roms and should i just get a linux box up and running? i have an oldish laptop laying around somewhere i can put it on. if it still works.

    the kitchen is for porting roms.. and does not support all phones, you have to have the required files to port a rom to an unsupported phone, if you want to build a rom or learn how, i suggest going tot he Android Open Source Project page to set up your system to repo the quired files and set up the build environment, you will come upon a few hitches when following the guide to set it up, but google is your friend, and the information is easily available to get everything up and running, may i suggest starting here Initializing a Build Environment | Android Open Source

    You may also want to check outt he Cyanogenmod Wiki at cyanogenmod.com as it can be very useful

    I use the HTC Kitchen to cook stock ROMs and to repackage others n certain mods etc. Works great, but I do it on a dedicated ubuntu installation, no vm or cgywin for me ;).
