Tutorial for Cherry Picking and Compiling CM9 on the Samsung Galaxy S I9000
Getting CyanogenMod or AOKP working is a rite of passage for many Android devices, and creating a bug-free port can often be a challenge. We recently covered the updated CyanogenMod Compiler that already helps users on a variety of devices get some CM-flavored AOSP goodness. However, while the app helps users get a build to boot, debugging the new build is a whole different story.
Samsung Galaxy S I9000 developers now have a more in depth tutorial that’ll help you get everything working even more quickly thanks to XDA Senior Member Perka. The tutorial was written with the I9000 in mind, and helps new developers get past the booting stage and into the bug-squashing phase.
The tutorial starts off with the basics, and then runs users through obtaining and compiling the code for CM9. This includes downloading all the code from the various sources, getting it all put together, and of course building. What makes this tutorial unique, however, is that Perka is kind enough to add in a tutorial for cherry picking specific fixes and features for their device that have not yet been merged into the official source tree.
If you have the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 and are looking to compile and cherry pick commits on CM9, continue on to the original thread to get started.

We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device. The Lolliflash is a Lollipop-shaped external flash and the ZenPower is a thin 10,000mAh external battery. In today's video, Jordan shows off the Lolliflash and the ZenPower Accessories. Additionally, ASUS and XDA have teamed up to give away 5...
