You gotta either do a video or rewrite this because as-is this is obtuse. Has anybody successfully ported anything with this?
Lol yeah I'll do an update. But meanwhile, try to understand and reread again

I've tried to port CM7, but it failed... But during the process there where a few steps that I wasn't sure about...
First of all, I'm using a HTC Explorer (ARMv7) and using JaggyRom as my BASE.
I went to CM page and downloaded a HTC Desire S (ARMv7) ROM to use as PORTED.

I didn't had any camera.apk in my BASE (I guess the camera will not work properly xD).
When I had to edit the build.prop and the updater-script files, there were a lot of command lines in BASE that didn't had a matching line in PORTED (ex: I had some ro.htc... lines in build.prop BASE and there where no ro.htc... lines in build.prop PORTED).
Should I had to PORTED the lines that are missing? Or just update the ones that exist to the right values?

In the updater-script file from BASE there were a lot more "symlinks" lines too... These 2 steps are confusing as hell =\

Thank you for reading

Yea I'll keep trying. If i can't do it I'll try another Base because this isn't even the stock rom... It already had Apps2SD and other stuff that require the SD card to have a partition and whatnot... So when I get a stock Rom I'll keep trying it

First of all THANKS for the guide! Have been unable to find one this detailed. I still can't get this to work though.. Is this the same process used for ICS based ROMS? I keep getting animation bootloops.. boots to the animation fine but just chills here infinitely.

Ive tried porting 2 different ROMS(many times each..) and get the same issue each time. Im trying to port to a Motorola Photon, an ARM-7 device and tried Roms from different devices(both ARM-7) but can't get it to work. Is there anything differently I need to do for ICS ports? Using CM9 as a base and trying to port other ICS based ROM. And do you have a tool to pull apart kernels with Windows 7(don't have linux at the time being) Ive followed several tutorials and they all lead me back to bootloops.. and idk how to logcat it or diagnose what im missing here..
