Well, nothing to fear as two guides which are useful to newbies and even old-timers will be introduced here!

A not-so-developer developer, active in the XDA-Developers Forum. Still learning things on the run, but knowledgeable enought to identify frauds and can't stand to see more and more wannabe "developers" making false claims about their "work".
