    Java and xml. You up to sync source? Try builds? You don't have to, but it does help. If your not familiar with it, I'll help you out.

    Who knows, you might be a contributor!

    I know XML, not Java. Let me get this rooted tonight and I'll help where I can.

    I found some info about clearing security so you can restore a different ROM backup

    2 schools of thought.
    Ya, I'm a developer in the Win environment, C# - Some Java - though the syntax is close to C#, it's the libraries that are really different. XML yes, I have done some XML edit in Framework in the past. Not sure if my apk tools are current. And I don't have the Android development studio installed, though I certainly could do that with a little guidance.

    Let me know what I can do, I'm working on a really huge FUBAR'd project at work, but certainly have a couple of hours a day I can devote.

    I think it's so cool to have a dev here... Anything I can do I'm glad to.

    I don't use Eclipse, or any other development studio to build my ROMs. I simply have the source, and build in command line. So much less work. :cool:

    Here is my source. Setup info in the readme.

    SteelDroid/platform_manifest ยท GitHub

    Not familiar with GitHub, we use Team Foundation Server. Care to point me to some reading material so I can get up to date ?

    I'm guessing the "repo" command is a GitHub command.

    The "Build" command ? - 'fraid I'm clueless, is that a script ?
    What do you compile with ?

    The more I think on this, the more I like it. I've kinda avoided development other than my personal theming adventures.

    The build command is for Linux Shell Scripts but I'm lost on the repo.

    edit - Repo is to get from the repository, much like TFS's Get Latest Version.

    GitHub Desktop I'm installing this.

    New edit - Downloading the Source | Android Open Source Project

    I just started reading the GitHub site, best guess repo is a GitHub command.

    Linux commands for the build will be a challenge for me. Never done a dual boot machine, never used Linux.

    But who says "Old Dawgs can't learn new tricks" - this could be the motivation for that....

    Repo isn't a GitHub command, it's Unix.

    Requirements | Android Open Source Project

    I've never used dual boot into Linux either. I'm installing the latest Ubuntu in VirtualBox, hopefully that works. https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/virtualboxes.org/Ubuntu 15.04.ova.torrent 1.5GB. I'll have to download that at home. My Phone doesn't have that great of a connection here.

    **Looks like both of us old Dawgs are going to be learning something.

    @chevycam94 - Question, I read the requirements for building - 16gb of memory for the build.. Really ? I have 8gb, tons of disk space, but not the memory.

    Thinking of using VMWare Worksation to create the Ubuntu VM.. probably can get a license through work, we use it exclusively there to for our development platforms.

    I'm sure you can build with less. Those specs are always overblown

    Guess we'll find out. I'll start seeing about getting VMWare setup and may need some guidance setting up Ubuntu if you're willing..
