Things you will need installed on your PC
Notepad++
Winzip/Winrar

Q) What device should i port from?

A)These Devices are the Best!
Xperia S
HTC Sensation
HTC Desire
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
DELETE "app,fonts,framework,media"
Open Port ROM and go to system folder
COPY "app,fonts,framework,media"
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

Now open build.prop of PORT ROM and find

ro.config.ringtone=
ro.config.notification_sound=
ro.config.alarm_alert=

COPY there 3 lines and replace them in the BASE ROM's build.prop

Now Open updater-script

scroll down and find the lines starting with set_perm (there will be lots of them!)

Copy only those lines From PORT ROM's updater-script to BASE ROM's updater-script

If You find any extra file or folder in system folder of PORT rom than copy them to your base rom system folder.

Open updater-script from PORT ROM and copy all the set_perm lines and replace them with the lines in BASE ROM

To prevent bootloop copy

libandroid_runtime.so
libandroid_servers.so
libmedia_jni.so

from system/lib in PORT ROM and REPLACE it with the files in system/lib of BASE ROM

Now ZIP the ROM and flash it

THIS WILL WORK. MAY BE******
can you give us a sample BASE rom and PORT rom i really want to try this method!

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"..

Haha not even close. If anyone wants to port a ROM to Runnymede (sensation xl) go search a bit, there is so many porting threads that are way better than this one. For best luck when porting, use a ROM that are having the same hw specs. At least SoC.
