Default [Q] [Help] Implementing features from one ROM into another?

Hello,
So I'm running a Nexus 4 with C-RoM on it. Before hand I was using Nexus5Experience, but had a few problems with it and I liked the features in C-RoM. However, C-RoM has stopped support for Halo. I was wondering if it was possible if someone could tell me a way to put Halo into C-RoM as I loved using it in N5X. If someone can lead me to a few guides to doing something like this, even if it's not specific to Halo. Thank you!

If you're willing to work from source then it's possible, but the Halo commits are all over the place and it's a rather large project, so it'd be very difficult. You might be able to find a dev willing to help.

I'm willing to learn and work from source. Are there any tutorials or guides you have in mind that can help me get started?

I'll warn you again, it's really difficult, but if you're willing then almost certainly you should check out XDA Uni.

Here's some more stuff:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2639611 for Ubuntu 14.04
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2464683 for Ubuntu 13.10
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2364970
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2329228 very useful
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2060017 moar

Of course don't sync CM source but sync C-ROM source: https://github.com/X-ROM/android

As for actually implementing Halo.... you've got a long way to go. Good luck anyway

Thank you so much! I've been meaning to learn this stuff as I've been working with Android phones for quite a while and really want to learn more of the in-depth stuff, so this is a perfect excuse to get started! Thank you for all the resources ^_^
