Due to the lack of a simple guide for compiling kernels, XDA Recognized Developer Droidzone decided to create his own specially for Devs. This guide includes an interactive menu and includes topics such as:
- Getting the sources
- Setting up the compilation box and preparing source code
- Setting up kernel parameters
- Compiling and distributing kernel
All very well explained for those who speak the language. You will need before staring Ubuntu Box a toolchain–either the Android NDK, or your own toolchain, HTC Desire GB/Froyo source from htcdevs.com, or sources from github and more importantly being familiar with the linux shell and basic linux commands.

[DEV] Kernel development HOWTO and Interactive menu
I havent yet found a simple guide for compiling kernels. Some of them assume too much, and some are just outdated. So I thought I’d write my own for devs/budding devs. Here you go!
This is not a guide for newbies. It’s a dev guide for devs.
Research before asking questions, please
