xPerfect Full Android Development Environment
Fed up of spending too much time messing around with environments, and unable to find a live cf or kitchen for cooking ROMS, XDA forum member MrHassell decided to build his own and release to share with the rest of the community.
xPerfect provides a full Android development environment in the form of a virtual machine and is free for anyone to download and use as required for building and developing Android sources, kernels, drivers and more.
Built using the Virtual Box and Ubuntu 10.10 x64, latest sources and builds for Froyo and beyond require this 64bit environment.
Please note that this is still a work in progress and is in initial release for feedback and suggestions.
For more information, including the download link, check out the forum thread.

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
