I have a Sprint HTC EVO 4G and the Spring Galaxy S4. I am fairly well versed with Linux in the PC/Server world with compiling, developing, and installing, but I am a noob to the Android world.
I have used Cyanogenmod on my Evo before, but I am still not 100% happy with it. I would like to compile and install my own pure stock version of Android with the Google Play Store app so that I can install only the app and programs I want and need.
Can someone tell me how to go about compiling the stock Android source code into a ROM in order to put on my phones?
Is doing something like this fairly easy to accomplish with a couple of days of tinkering? Or is something like this a massive undertaking with lots of complexities with drivers, software packages, kernel modules, etc, etc, etc?
