1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I was hoping you guys here could guide me on the start of a path that eventually leads me to building my own rom from scratch.

    I don't know any programming language in detail, but I know the basics of Java and C#, and I've done a lot of scripting with a program called Autohotkey. I have Windows and know very little about Linux, although I have a VM and will happily install a Linux distro and mess around with it and learn the ins and outs of basic Linux stuff.

    My question is basically, what are all the things I need to teach myself in order to become proficient enough to build a rom? Although as I said, I don't have much programming expertise, I am very technically minded and confident in my ability to learn. I also am willing to put a lot of time into this effort.

    Where do I start? What do I need to know? What would help me on this journey? Thank you for your ideas and help!

    to get you started, you will need this:

    [TUT] Build your own AOSP ROM

    & this:

    Google

    lol but seriously, you will need to setup Linux (I recommend Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit), download Eclipse, and a bunch of other stuff (Android Developer). It's quite a hefty undertaking to go from 0 to Developer without knowing any programming, but that should get you pointed in the right direction.
