    Yes and no I'm sure, it'll give you a baseline to work from for it but you'll need to add/remove and edit a lot of things

    Directly from this guide, no. For example the repo init line would be changed to:
    repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b ics

    There would have to be several other changes, but I'm at work right now, and only have my phone, so I don't have time to type out more...

    I know, I need to update the guide. I will get around to it soon. There are a few changes I need to make a point of.

    We dont build using the "bacon" switch. If you want to do the build all in one step, this is the command:

    Code:
    . build/envsetup.sh && brunch shadow
    "shadow" is the Droid X, which you probably already knew. lol

    Optionally, if you want to see that command line laid out in pieces, it would be slightly different, like this:

    Code:
    . build/envsetup.sh
    brunch        (or "lunch" if you want)
    [COLOR=#ff0000]## This is where you choose which one you want to build[/COLOR]
    make -j6 otapackage

    Basically the same. Just in the beginning use "jellybean" instead of "gingerbread"

    Now since we are on JB is it possible to build from source for DX. I did not see the files for the Dx in the source? Again I am a noob and I tried running first before crawling.Lol

    I don't believe so. I'm not sure what all is planning on being supported.
