thanks for the answer Chasmodo.
may I bother you with another beginners question? I am a true layman in these matters. What does it take to get Omni running? would it mean a lot of work to make the Oppo OmniRom "fit" the Padfone? Would the fact that the hardware is so much the same an advantage, less work to be done?
If i understand it correctly the hurdle to tackle is mainly the kernel as it is the handler between software and hardware.
If answering is too much of a hassle ( I would understand and this might not be the correct place to ask), perhaps you know a good starting point for me to learn more about the basics of adapting KitKat ot a new phone.
