How To Compile Your Own Kernel From Source

382px-Kernel_Layout.svg

Seen all the threads at XDA about kernels? Waiting for a new release? Well, if you fancy having a go at compiling your own, take a look at the comprehensive guide that XDA forum member adrynalyne has helpfully put together.

If you don’t feel up to the challenge just yet, the guide is also a good read for those interested in what goes into compiling a kernel.

You’ll need Linux, dsixda’s kitchen (to easily split and repack kernels), a source, and a cross compiler toolchain.

The XDA member gives an introduction from installing Ubuntu to getting the source code, grabbing the toolchain, grabbing and setting up the kitchen and finally compiling and packing the kernel.

For the detailed guide including download links, head on over to the tutorial thread.
