    New dev help?

    Not sure where to put this but figured here would be the best place.....

    Like the title says im interested in starting to develop for android (eventually moving up to working on roms for the d2g). However i have no idea where to start. If anyone could kind of point me in the right direction/give me any resources it would be much appreciated. I know how to script and use python as well as a little bit of java but its much the same, dont know where to start to really learn....

    Yes, i know im on the GRD dev team and a member of the beta team. Thats from my helping troubleshoot so the real dev's dont have to take time away from their work.

    Edit: forgot to say I have win7 and Ubuntu 10.10 64bit dual booted and am comfortable with both.

    Hmm thanks for those links.... I looked around a little on the sdk site but could only find the "hello droid" tutorials.

    I know it caant be compiled from source which is really annoying but still then.....

    If you have downloaded eclipse they have tutorials on there. I would recommend starting with Java because once you understand Java you will be able to learn other programs for Apps, like Ruby, or Python, very quickly. If you want to start developing I would use JavaDr because it is less bloated. If you want more help you can email me.

    I am sure davros (@_davros) and swallisa (@stevewallisa) could be of some help.

    ~/android/system$ repo init -u git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/manifest.git -b froyo
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/home/dusty/bin/repo", line 603, in <module>
    main(sys.argv[1:])
    File "/home/dusty/bin/repo", line 570, in main
    _Init(args)
    File "/home/dusty/bin/repo", line 184, in _Init
    _CheckGitVersion()
    File "/home/dusty/bin/repo", line 213, in _CheckGitVersion
    proc = subprocess.Popen(cmd, stdout=subprocess.PIPE)
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 672, in __init__
    errread, errwrite)
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 1213, in _execute_child
    raise child_exception
    OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory
    any help would be appreciated...

    Best guide bar none is droid concepts for aosp here Compile Android Based ROMs - DroidConcepts

    Unfortunately tailored for the Droid1 but invaluable for learning and just need to find device specific instructions after you have everything set up.

    Ty Cush, tried CM's and it worked (not sure if that was because of the reboot or CM).
