I know this isn't a coding question but it relatetes to it.

I was wondering what tools I need to make my custom android os, for this requires probably java.

I know to make andoid apps you need eclpses for andoid SDK but that only makes apps, it can't customise the os

Dear TechXSoftware,

Oficially is known, that Android consists of a kernel based on Linux kernel version 2.6 and, from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich onwards, version 3.x, with middleware, libraries and APIs written in C, and application software running on an application framework which includes Java-compatible libraries based on Apache Harmony. Android uses the Dalvik virtual machine with just-in-time compilation to run Dalvik 'dex-code' (Dalvik Executable), which is usually translated from Java bytecode. The main hardware platform for Android is the ARM architecture.

Android is the open source system, you can grab code there:
