Okay guys, so I know you want to port ROMs yourself, but you still ask for developers to port ROMs for you. I like noobs and I like supporting them, so here's a porting ZIP. The ZIP can port Any MT6582 ROM to Micromax Unite 2 without need to open and make changes in original ROM! Look great? Let's see how it will work!

1. Backup your current ROM!!!!
2. Open the META-INF folder of the ROM to port and delete lines like "format("ext4", "EMMC", "/dev/block/mmcblk0p5")" or any line which formats the partition [Do it only with Notepad++ or any other GNU editor, but don't do it with Notepad/Wordpad etc. ZIP it again.
2. Format /System and make a factory reset.
3. Flash any MT6582/MT6582M ROM in your Micromax Unite 2.
4. Flash my "ROM_Porter_Micromax_Unite_2.zip" after flashing your ROM.
5. Reboot!

~Bug Fixing guide:

1. If the UI appears to be upside down, then change a line with "hw.rotation" to 180..! If there is no such line then add "ro.sf.hwrotation=180" line in build.prop ANYWHERE!!
2. If the ROM seems to be 'zoomed' in or 'not fitting screen', then edit a line with "ro.sf.lcd_density=XX" to "ro.sf.lcd_density=213" or add "ro.sf.lcd_density=213" line in build.prop if you cannot find any line like that!
3. There is a loop in bootanimation: Just change "bootclasspath" in init.rc which is inside the boot.img [Don't ask me how to do this, just google it out!].. if porting Color OS, then newbies, don't do this because it needs many changes in init.rc.

How To Release a ROM after bugs fixed!:

1. Wipe userdata.
2. Make a Nandroid backup using any recovery [CWM recommended!]
3. Upload the Nandroid backup.
4. Ask users to download the "Backup_x_x_x" folder and place it in "SDcard/Clockworkdmod/Backup/" folder and restore that Nandroid backup!!

Miui ROM shows this error even if you put boot.img in the ROM. Even my MIUI ROM has this error. The script is working fine.

Thanks for testing. Could you please test any other ROM from Coolpad 7295C? There is a problem in my porter obviously. Please manually move and replace the files and the ROM will boot, i'm sure.

Sorry, CM is not for MT6582 and we don't have a kernel source too.
