Questions about kernel

Hey guys,
So I've been searching around for a while now and I could not find any updated guide on porting/building custom kernels. I need a lot of help for this, as I am completely new and do not know anything to do with kernel stuff. I do my part by finding out whats a ramdisk and stuff, but please pardon me if I ask very stupid questions which may give you cancer.

I asked quite a few people, but all those don't reply. I won't list names, but just to let you know I tried.

Anyways, my problem here is I want to port a kernel which isn't available for my device, i9305. First kernel I want to try porting is boeffla kernel. Here is the repo --> I am continuing off @ 's work, as his laptop spoilt or something. In the first place, when I tried to use the script bbuild.sh, the terminal window immediately closes after a bunch of stuff happened and I cannot find the .zip. I don't even know if there's an error in building because terminal window immediately closes after a huge bunch of text showed up

I would also want to port other kernels in the future but I guess I'll get some basic knowledge of kernels first.

Thanks,
limjh16
