Basically, I want to a mobile OS, that can be used to learn about the creation of mobile operating systems. I'd prefer one thats based on Android.

Something like Minix for desktop: A clean and small OS perfect to use in didact's examples and things like that. I know that I can use any linux/unix version (even Minix) and put it in a mobile device, but I believe that mobile devices has some specificities that needs special treatment and it will be good to know a specific system to deal with this.

I'm trying to avoid Cyanogen or systems with some "commercial purpose" (huge systems with many users and many specifics) .

    Not sure about what you're really looking for to do with it, but as you mention CyanogenMod and giving "commercial" as only reason against it (you're not confusing this with Cyanogen OS, do you? The former is community, the latter commercial), you might be interested in Replicant – which is completely open source.

  • I want to use a Android Distribution to start learning about the development of mobile OS and I believe that a distribution created for didactic purposes maybe could be a good option. I used "commercial" in a wrong way for CyanogenMod, but I just don't believe that CyanogenMod can be a good start point. I'll see this Replicant. Thx.

    Don't know, I'm not a dev. And this site is not the right place to ask for that (and no, Android.SE neither). Pointer, on our sister-site: Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions?

    @James I reworded your question to better fit the needs you expressed here in the comments. Please, do have a look if I got it right. I'd recommend Open Moko but haven't looked at its code in ages. Jul 15 '15 at 11:39
