The hardware of the OPPO Find 5 and ASUS Padfone 2 are very much the same, have a look here

My NOOB question: would it be safe to try the Oppo Find 5 Rom on the padfone 2?

Cheers,
Adrian

You'd be risking a brick.

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.

Thanks,
Adrian

Kernel is a big part of it, blobs are too.

Just because the SoC is the same doesn't mean there is much else. Display (1080p 5" means nothing - there are at least 5-10 different displays that all meet this criteria), charging circuitry, audio routing, camera, etc.

Ok, thanks for the answer Entropy512.

Guess it means I have to be hopeful and patient..... I definitely do not have the skills to do this myself.
