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.
