Now, he’s launched an all-out help thread for any and all of your rooting, porting, and development questions. In the words of the developer:
If you have any other problems or need help or even want to learn about Android and become a developer then just post in the thread, I’ll get back to you. ALL OF YOU.
So don’t worry if I don’t get back within the first hour or so, I’ll help you don’t worry.
I’m not doing this for my own benefit, I’m doing it for yours, I’m patient and I understand how daunting places like this must be, I felt the same way when I first joined, I was scared about rooting my phone and still get a bit scared when it doesn’t boot straight away but once you know the basics things just flow to you
I want to help you, help yourselves. so drop by with any questions about android, I’m going to be there from the moment this is posted.
