Things you will need installed on your PC
Q) What device should i port from?
A)These Devices are the Best!
HTC Desire HD
Feel Free to try other devices
Base ROM and PORT ROM
Base ROM is what is Developed For XL
Port ROM is what ROM you want to port for XL
Note: If you are porting a CM(PORT) which is ICS the BASE should Be cm9... same for JB
Now Let's start Porting!
Extract the BASE ROM to a Folder named Base
Extract the PORT ROM to a Folder named Port
Open Base ROM and go to system folder
Open Port ROM and go to system folder
and paste it in System folder of the Base ROM
Open Port ROM and go to etc folder
Open Permissions Folder copy everything EXCEPT handheld_core_hardware.xml and platform
and paste it in the etc folder of the BASE ROM
Open Base ROM and go to system/etc/init.d folder
DELETE all files except 00banner
Open Port ROM and go to system/etc/init.d Folder
COPY everything Except 00banner
and paste it in the init.d folder of the BASE ROM
Now open build.prop And edit
ro.build.display.id=add what you want here
ro.modversion=add what you want here
Take any of SXL ROM As Base, and for PORT take any other device ROM.
For Example : RUNNY KITKAT is "BASE" and KITKAT of another Device is "PORT"..
