Default [Q]Porting MiniCM 10 to golfu

Hey everybody,

I just learnt the method for porting ROMs...
So i am trying to port MINICM 10 from HTC Explorer to Desire C and i want to know whether there is no harm in doing so, i would be using cm 10 build 3 as a base ROM, so i hope when i complete the base rom and when i flash it, it doesn't brick my phone !

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

Reflash.

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

theres always a risk of soft brick, which is bootlooping. Its an easy fix, just reboot into recovery and restore your backup or flash cm10 for you device

P.S: do a full wipe before flashing port roms as a dirty flash causes bootloops
