[DEV] HELP: Porting AOSP ROM to HTC Explorer

So, i currently have an HTC Explorer A310.

The device already has a valid method to unlock the Bootloader, and the "only" thing missing is CUSTOM ROMS.

There was already one called MasterMind, but, unfortunately, the dev sold his device and development was discontinued. Even if this was a custom rom, it still had all that HTC/Sense crap which most of us hate.

So, i was wondering, what do we have to do to build an AOSP based ROM (CM maybe..?), as clean as possible, to this device?

I have some programming knowledge (c, c++, java...) and i'm currently studying IT @ university.

I just need someone to guide me, so i won't turn my phone into a small brick.

I was thinking that a good start would be to find a similar divice which already had AOSP ROM's. With some search i found out that some HTC Aria users were trying to Port the Sense 3.5 of the Explorer to their phone, and that Aria already has CM7, for example.

Sorry for my "not so good" english, but if you have some knowledge in this subject, please, help

What is your status?

- Have you found information about a similar device?
- Have you successfully rooted your device?
- Did you already compile some existing AOSP rom?
- Have you found/read a guide/post about porting android?
- Did you backup your original firmware?

Don't own the phone anymore, but, as i said on the op, the HTC Aria seems quite similar.

Since i don't have it anymore it would be quite difficult to do it.

Besides, nobody showed any interest in this...
