I'm just wondering, but is it actually easier or would it be the same to port ASOP instead of CM?

also since the build being used (at least so i thought) is nexus, why not use the Sensation's CM build and modify that, they're so similar that it'd seem like little would have to be done?

i am obviously uneducated with the whole ASOP roms but it just seems logical to my ignorant self lol

I'm pretty sure you can't just take a port and drop it onto our phone. Device specific files such as drivers and the RIL (radio interface layer) and lots of other things need to be modified to work with our phone. The biggest thing seems to be getting RIL working, and that will make it a lot easier to port over AOSP/MUIU/etc, it seems like it's not any easier to get AOSP on there else that's probably the route they would have taken. It's a complicated process which people are working hard at.

Out of curiosity, does anyone know if getting CM9 working will make it easier to get Sense4 or are the RILs completely different?

I'm no expert so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

reading about why Sense4 hasn't been ported yet is because of it so deeply "tying" with the drivers, that it's just as hard as "removing" sense

We have a better understanding of what is needed for RIL, which is also helping the sense guys. You can take a few commits and our device repos to build straight AOSP, AOKP, Evervolv, or whatever your favourite source variety is. We're doing source building though, not precompiled copy and pasting, so it's quite a bit different.

Edit: Zacgoesrawr, we're not using a nexus build, but using source. You can check the manifest on the github page to see where the repositories are being taken from. At this point most are from CM, or CM based (the playground).

Edit: this was a failure. Meant to edit the previous post, not quote.

Flashed build 4.1 still no radio,wifi,usb with windows,sound,storage. Something to note which i've posted before. Flashing the kozmi kernal causes a no service message on the lock screen. Where flashing the attached boot.img doesn't initialize the radio. Unfortunately the kozmi kernal causes force closes all over the place so its impossible to see whats really going on.

The fcs might be why. RIL is still a WIP and needs some framework changes now.

To be exact. Sense 4 port has not been release because of ril not working yet. Everything else works just as well as on our sensation sister. And no working ril on asop or cm9 will not really make a difference. The framework is different.

So porting from the Sensation/Evo 3D is harder than it looks?
