Question

[attachment=341365:NEODroid.png]

I am proud to announce, that I have been working on a custom rom for the Samsung  Galaxy S4 for the Neowin Community. 

 

I present you with NEOdroid, the first Android rom built for the Neowin community.  In the past, the community of Neowin has built their Linux Distros, now I thought it was time to put some fun in our pockets. (pun intended)

This is a community rom and would love for everyone

Seems like a REALLY odd idea.  A ROM for a specific phone based upon the theme from a forum.  Bearing in mind the trouble a poor ROM can cause - just seems odd.  BUT, fair play :)

 

Not really.. Neowin has made some Linux distros before that were pretty neat.. It is for a specific phone at them moment because ROMs are not universal.. If this project gains the attention of other neowin members with other Android devices, I would be more than happy to port it after we have a finished S4 rom..  The base is CM.. which most custom roms are based from that.. 

No screenshots or videos?

 

No yet.. Looks pretty much like a stock ASOP ROM ATM.. Trying to optimize the build.prop and go from there..

I've moved this to the Android sub-forum, and also pinned it, it's a pretty awesome idea (y)

I can port this as soon as I get the first release out for the 9505 if you are interested.. that shouldn't be an issue at all..

I understand your intentions, but it seems a bit gimmicky. Good luck though.

Let's try to keep it positive until release.. If you don't like the idea or dont want to use it.. Simply don't post..

This is going to be an very exciting and fun project for the ones interested.

To those who are questioning the point of this, the OP just wanted a fun project and this gave them a theme to work towards rather than just making a generic ROM.

This could be good fun. I'm still fighting to root my S4, but when I eventually get it done I would be interested in trying this out.

Now, why would anyone, except perhaps the owners of this site, want that as their wallpaper?

You claim your goal is a Neowin themed ROM, and then you didn't even scale the logo correctly!?

I love you guys but I'd far sooner have my phone themed like my Mustang message board before I themed it like Neowin. :laugh:

 

Cool project though. Good luck. I'll see if there's anything I can help out with when you get a little more past the planning stage.

Nik, I used the same template as CM 10.2.  Instead of complaining about it, fix it.  This is suppose to be a group effort. 

 

You have done nothing but complain or talk down about this project. If you don't want to help, and talk down to others, please do so somewhere else.

This.

 

If you have something negative to say about this.. please just refrain and move on. Not everything has to have some lofty, revolutionary outcome. Perhaps he just wants to learn more about creating and compiling ROMs and the general process, and the Neowin theme gives some direction for it. Personally I think it's cool. Projects are more fun ways to learn than just studying.

 

Neowin is, among other things, about encouraging other 'geeks' and facilitating things like this through collaboration and helpful input. Constructive criticism is fine and in fact encouraged, but please don't be negative just for the sake of it. Thanks!

 

(fusi0n, Haggis, others.. rock on, looks neat so far. :) )
