Can you go through the actual "porting" process because from what I understand you have done it? If I'm correct to port a ROM you need to have working ROM from other device? If yes, does that device have to be same manufacturer? Lets say I do have working AOSPA kitkat for my device so I need to get AOSPA lollipop and exchange the certain files and then I'll able to run it? Once again if it's like that then I use your tool and get necessary blobs? I don't have a clue about this stuff, I only build ROMs but now time has come that my device is unsupported so can you give me some tips, thanks.

If you don't have a clue then dont do it, please! Work your way up. First step in this hypothetical is to wait for aospa 5.0

Is it possible that each wl12xx library only relies on AOSP libraries (has no dependencies?)

See if they can be built from source!
