    Community based roms?

    I was just wondering other than CyanogenMod and AOSP roms are any other custom roms open sourced (ie SS, BB, Sourcery, UD or any others)?

    yes I realize SS and UD are CM7 based but do they open source their edit?

    thanks in advance

    I think pretty much all the Devs here are doing open source ROMs.

    As said they all are, dont think there are any devs that hide things. Maybe Im wrong but I think it has more to do with the size of the team and the amount of extra time the dev has.

    Bigger team = more time to work with other rom makers. CM is fairly large I think, or the dev just has a lot of time, he puts out updates none stop. Also helps that CM is very stock looking, small add ons so its not Pre built so much as a base line with tools

    CM has way more than a few add-ons. Their source code is highly edited.
    Cyanogen builds the base, his team port to different devices. It makes for faster output for sure.

    I keep hearing people saying UD is based off of CM. From many random arguments here, to my knowledge, IT IS NOT. It is based on ASOP just like CM.

    I'm just saying this cause I hate to see Raffixca jump down your throat about it.
    Let's make an effort not to start anything between these 2 Devs. I enjoy both of there Roms.

    Sorry I wasn't looking to pick a fight.
    I was really looking more for links to where I could find their edits.

    And sorry if I was wrong about what anyone based their roms off of I just wanted to see how they accomplished the magic.

    Thanks

    Naw, no worries. The Only rom I think is actually built off of CM Base is MIUI.

    You want to go to the Custom Rom area or Android Rom area and poke around a little.
