Comprehensive Guide for Building PAC ROM for Your Device
Pac-Man isn’t just a funny-looking character from the earliest moments in gaming. PAC ROM is also the name of one of the most popular ROMs available for many devices here at XDA. The developers of PAC take the best features from popular ROMs like CM, Paranoid Android, and AOKP, and put them together while adding their personal flair.
PAC is pretty easy to port, even with a moderate amount of Android building knowledge. If you’ve ever tried to take a stab at building PAC, you might be interested in reading a guide by XDA Recognized Developer iurnait.

The build process is scripted, so compiling should not be a big challenge. But nevertheless, the guide is very helpful.
