    Wouldnt work. When porting you need to port from a phone that's most identical. And we would need a kernel too

    Yes and no. We need a kernel. Without source we can't make one

    But if your blind does it matter? Perhaps you have no nerve endings and you cant feel or you are a sociopath who does not feel? What if....What if....What if..... Are we all connected? Is there 6 degrees of seperation? Was Sisyphus right to want to commit suicide? If a toaster toasts toast, then does a toast toast a toaster? We need Ms. Cleo

    Ok guys you need to read and understand what source code it..

    Android is a User interface that runs on top of a Very modified Linux Kernel Created for Arm Processors.
    This is writing in Java Programming language. The Source Code. is the Java language (syntex scripting language) Used to Compile the Binary files needed for the CPU To read. So in order to Compile a Kernel for a Device You must have the original Source with all the scripting syntex and Drivers to compile your changes against. This is how software manufactures protect there Kernel/ operating system.. The source code is what is used to compile the binary kernel . You can pull this from a existing rom . BUT ONLY WITH THE Original to compile it again. Ant needs to know what its digging for so to speak..

    This is Quick and crude version of how this really works . Written in a way to kinda make logical sense to those who are less Program knowledge . Hope this helps you all somewhat understand..
