Abstract
The fragmentation in the Android world is a pain that affects everyone, users and developers. First of all for security reasons, then for the development effort. Some open source projects were born to avoid this, such as Cyanogen. Many developers are cooking ROMs to ensure support to latest Android version even on older devices, overcoming the obsolescence life cycle of manufacturers for the benefit of the community. Google is also working on this with the project Treble, but the road is long and uphill!

Open source wants you!

In the talk we will learn how to make a difference, cooking a brand new ROM. Obviously, this talk will not turn you into started Chefs, but we will learn to build custom ROM starting from AOSP. We will see how to extract our device tree, build the HAL and we will analyze the most difficult points of this sweet art.
