I am still very junior over here in this section but i still want to port this ROM...Please everybody give me your suggestions so as to if there is any harm in doing so !
Thanks in advance
It's perfectly safe. Plus it's easy to port from HTC Explorer!
Just extract both
- Delete from golfu and Copy Apps, Media, Framework, and Fonts from pico to Golfu
- The go to etc>init.d, delete all except banner or something and don't copy the ones from pico yet
- Go to etc>permissions Copy the permissions from pico except platform and handheld_hardware
- Go to system>lib and copy over libmedia, libandroid and libandroid_runtime
Change the boot.img's over, zip and flash, if it flashes and boots, great! Go back an edit the build.prop using notepad++
If you get errors like set_perm failure, open the updater script in the meta inf folder, and copy the set_perm para from pico and paste in golfu
If it boots, add in the init.d scripts and reflash, may or may not boot.
it may or may not have root access.
Use NOPE boot.img
