[Q] (Q) How to port roms?
I have been looking at roms for my device for quite a while. Some are ports of s4 and xperia stock roms. How to port the latest version of android to my device? I read up on some guides and they all state that the port rom can be any working rom for my device and the base rom should be from any device which has a similar chipset. But there aren't many devices in the market with MTK6589 chipset and the existing ones don't have android 4.3. My question is , how did people manage to port the s4 stock rom to a mediate device. (the s4 has an exynos chipset). And how do people manage to port the latest android versions to their devices.
This may be a noob question but I searched through the forums and couldn't find anything much helpful.
PLS:I have some experience with Linux and its commands but don't know much of coding.
