DSIXDA’s ROM Kitchen for HTC Android Devices

Ever wanted to create your own custom ROM but don’t have enough coding experience to actually get started? Luckily, XDA Senior Moderator Dsixda has created a wonderful kitchen for HTC Android devices that should fulfill all of your ROM baking needs. This kitchen is compatible with both Linux and Mac OS X, so if you’re running Windows, you will need to use either Cygwin or a virtualization technology such as VirtualBox. Details for getting either of those solutions are available in the Kitchen FAQ.

According to the developer, this kitchen is targeted towards:

  • Those who are brand new to creating custom ROMs and want an easy place to start;
  • Those who just want to modify shipped ROMs or someone else’s custom ROMs to their liking;
  • Those who are confused by all those scripts and complex commands required for building and extracting.

So far, the following devices are known to be compatible:

  • Buzz / Wildfire
  • Desire
  • Desire HD
  • Desire Z
  • Dream / G1
  • Droid Eris
  • Evo 4G
  • Evo Shift 4G
  • HD2 – using NAND ROM
  • Hero / G2 Touch
  • Incredible
  • Legend
  • Magic / myTouch 3G
  • myTouch 4G
  • Nexus One
  • Tattoo / Click
  • All other rooted HTC Android devices (untested)
  • All other HTC Windows Mobile devices that can run Android NAND ROMs (untested)

Even some non-HTC devices are compatible, according to other forum members:

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
