Because there aren't too many of those already. Pro tip, this isn't how you hire software developers. This is how you hire idiots who just learned Java from a "Java for Dummies" book.

Also, I just killed pichu.

Don't wait for me to tell you your project is a failure, you'll see for yourself soon enough.

"make sure you know the basics of the Android SDK"

Did you ever work on any custom ROM? Are you sure that you know what you are into here?

Well ok then. There are just to many people around here who are like "I want to program this and that" and have no idea what they are doing.

I strongly suggest to work with the cyanogenmod team. They built an awesome thing out there and as far as I know they don't have a rom for the galaxy player.
As someone who is not specifically into Android development(I am more into PC related development), but a long time custom rom user, just some general advice that may or may not be helpful:
- Stay vanilla as much as possible, people who install custom roms want to customize their system on their own.
- For small teams which need to focus: bug fixes > new features.
- For every app you put into the system yourself: maintain the holo style. Always.
- Stability > speed. A rom that is a little slow is no problem. A rom that crashes every once in a while is really annoying.
- Try to keep it c. Java is inefficient and slow as fuck. This is arm, not citrix!

Android itself is C++. I was talking about the applications, just in case you want to add some of your own.
