If it is closer to the V500 than the V510 then probably not, however I am not aware of anyone who has tried to do a conversion of this sort. The first thing you would probably need is a way to unlock the bootloader. Last I knew the V810 does not have an unlocked bootloader.

doesn't matter because we have a bootloader exploit

the partitions on the GPE are different, think it needs some work to be ported over, and you probably won't get LTE access

heck, my vk810 cm11 build still doesn't have LTE access yet... haven't made any useful findings
Current Device:
Oppo Find 5 - experimental kernel

did you try my cm11 build then?

I probably can build AOSP kitkat for vk810 (with the same broken LTE/GPS)... let me know

Which partitions are different?

Quite a bit of work was done early this year to try to port the V510 ROM to V500. While the result was reasonably stable, it was unuseable because the developers could not get WiFi to work. Hardware & drivers were sufficiently different between the two devices to be problematic. You can find old threads in Android Development and in the General section.

I'm not trying to tell you guys this won't work. Just letting you know about some previous work.

Would it be easier to port a v510 rom to the Verizon GPad? I just want KK. I don't care about having aosp and I don't need LTE. I'm just using Wi-Fi.
