    Is there a better site than "android developers"?
    Looking for more of a step by step rather than a general overview.
    Books or websites would be helpfull. Or somone else that use's eclipse and the adt plugin.

    What exactly are you wanting to develop?

    develop

    trying to learn how to develop app's, themes and custom roms.
    the help guide for eclipse and on the web site android developers is good, but not enough for me to really learn. really looking for a basic step by step guide.

    I doubt you will find a step by step guide like you want. I haven't. All I have found is a few guides on how to compile a rom from source, but not how these guys do the fancy customizing. Here's my three:

    start [CVPCS Android Wiki] (watch the commands for adb, it's based on the last release, not the latest)
    Compile CyanogenMod for Sholes - CyanogenMod Wiki
    Howto compile ShadowRom from source : ShadowROM

    Here's one I found for theming:

    https://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0AcdxIJRSH9ypZGZzc2pxNDlfMjdnazk4OHNxZA&hl=en

    As far as apps, I haven't found anything yet, except one needs to know/learn java to write them. If you find some easier guides, please let me know!

    good luck
