The book on the subject. Book was good enough that I took a week long class with the author to further my knowledge. Karim knows his stuff.

There is little documentation for this anywhere else that I could find.

Karim is an expert on Linux and Android By S. Vemparala on Jul 19, Karim is an expert on Linux and Android and usually the information presented in his books is fairly thorough.

Great source of knowledge By Amazon Customer on May 26, Absolutely wonderful for not only customizing your android installation but it takes you through a well laid out overview of the Android system. It goes more in-depth with the build systems and customizing Android. It has a bit of system coverage of the internals of the Android system. I wish it covered building your own Androidized Kernel. More for the system developer not the app developer. Excellent book.
