Hi! I'm currently making a somewhat desperate attempt at porting cm12 to the d950. I know some basic things, I once tried to make a custom kernel. I have the device and vendor trees set up, with the cm12 source and the files from the flex source, and I've been making some changes. Can anyone help point me in some direction from here?

Okay, so now I need to run extract-files.sh, only problem is it doesn't exist. and from my understanding, I have to already be running cm12 to do this, which obviously is not possible. Can anyone help me get the proprietary blobs?

You're better off looking at the g2 proprietary blobs as when I was trying I had the most success with them on CM11, its a good starting point

Yeah, its a good place to start, but it won't suddenly make it compile, it helped sort a couple of issues once we'd got it compiling in the first place....

Alright, I've got something that looks pretty good going, but I can't do anything without a working kernel. And as I don't know much about kernels, could Someone possibly try to make one for cm12? Also, I have the blobs from my boyfriend's g2, and I've made a lot of changes, but I might need a little more guidance. Any help is appreciated.

Do you have coding experience though thats the question.

Either Build a dummy kernel or modify the original kernel from cm11 roms that your device has and built it alongside the system images.

CyanogenMod doesnt allow Building of only the system.

Youll need to modify the following:
Kernel Source
Device Trees
Vendor Files

A good way to look at what is required for a cm12 bringup is to check other similar devices with the same architecture and compare the changes and the sources you have on your pc.

So I just forked the blobs from playfulgods repo, and I've made a lot of changes to tbe devices folder, as well as 'POSSIBLY' do something good as for a kernel, but I doubt that will work. How does one build the kernel to test it? Using linux btw. I have all of the dependencies and everything, could someone explain breakfast/brunch/lunch?
