There's a lot of editing that's going to need to be done on a few things.

We used the totem because the mounting worked the best. Once we better at working with the vold files and can manipulate them perfectly with the other roms we might rebase the Rom.

But for now, this is a good start.

I'm not the best with compiling and decompiling kernels. But I'm more than willing to help the devs out with any kind of testing that needs to be done.

I'm more then willing to help never know I might learn more always up for learning new tricks.

I agree with this, generally if you don't have experience porting ROMS you should be focused on doing your best to debug. Once most of the stuff is fixed and we're on the level of the bugs in Viper/Sense 4.1 we can open up more porting projects because it's silly to port stuff which is broken that nobody can actually use lol.

I'm probably just going to port one thing and release it, help fix, or do my best to attempt to fix bugs. Once stuff is mostly fixed and usable we'll start porting more stuff.
