    If you want to be successful at it, first learn how Android works. Learn what each portion of a rom does, and where to go to fix something. If you are doing a copy and paste jobbie, which I have been doing lately due to lack of proper kernel source, you need to know what to do to fix something broken, how to properly set permissions, what you can get away with removing, what you must keep. Its also good to have several rom junkyards for spare parts, but this once again, goes back to learning how Android works. A 1976 pinto engine won't fit into a 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo. Well, it might fit but it for sure won't work.


    If you really want to learn, sit down, and bury your head into some guides for compiling your own from source. This is pretty simple, IF you are good with GNU/Linux. If not, its still doable, just a lot tougher.

    Good luck.
