Since the dawn of time, people have been naturally scared of things that are not understood. The sheer fear of the possible consequences of venturing into something new has given humanity sweaty palms and chills for ages. Well, luckily, somwhere along the way we learned how to re-transmit information in writen form, so if something was done before, we could follow previous findings and build upon them. Rom cooking is not the exception to this rule. While roms are only made by a select few, it is not that complicated to make one yourself or at least modify an existing one to suit your needs better. For instance, how many times have you gone to a chef asking to have xyz app or theme added? Why waste your time waiting for an answer when you can easily mod the rom you are using yourself? XDA Recognized Developer freeza brings us a fantastic guide that will show you exactly how to do this without even having to have a kitchen installed on your PC. The guide is still being put together, but quite frankly it shows not only a step by step, but also the logic needed to understand the inner structure of a rom. Again, this is not rocket science, but it will require you to read.
As previously stated, this guide is a work in progress and it is aimed at the EVO 3D, but the general concept is the same across all Android devices. Please leave your feedback and thoughts for the dev.
ROMs aren’t scary things, they’re actually quite simple in terms of structure. As long as they’re built correctly from the get go, you will learn how to mod it to suit your needs.
You can find more information in the guide thread.
