Default [ROM] Htc Explorer (pico) - Explorer_ICS

Hello Friends!

So, i'm trying to port HTC Desire C rom to our HTC Explorer.
All help and advice are welcome, I don't want this rom to be "my rom" but a rom for all of us and a little bit of everyody SEE UPDATE NEWS BELLOW!!

Drooling mode:



Still not able to boot but it installs!

I followed this guide for help.

Help needed

I have doubts of what to do with this files I upload above. Now i'm trying with Stock rom and golf rom...the files are: build.pro, build.img, update.bin and update script,i'll update a folder with theses files from both roms! I guess this files are giving the problems because the rest of the tuturial is easy

So, Golf ---> Explorer, can someone with experience edit theses files so the rom dont have errors in booting up??? I made arrangents as I say below, but no sucess :S

-> build prop must have where is device and all...pico instead of golf!
->boot image must be of golf with bootclasspath line edited with stcoks'
-> Update binary (can i copy paste the stocks one?)
->Update script: this is the trick one, i dont know much :S

Advice would be good too and take action in the port too, let's talk about it in this thread, let's make it a "Explorer's Community Rom"

Rosie ICS Mod_by ourico4@XDA


I bring u guys,yet, another mod! This time another one to our beloved Rosie, the love of our eyes and the eye candy of our Explorer!

Same drill, flash through recovery,choose stock or jaggy version (this time have no unmod thing, so flash if u really want to, I don't know why u wouldn't :P )

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/?gcbxp7jbwhk4mhb

Just flash through recovery!

1)‎>>>>BLUEMOD_ZIP: FOR STOCK ROM AND JAGGY ROM!<<<<<<<<


>ZIP for install mod, and.....BIG NEWS: zip for remove mod (yes remove and back to before mode!!)

>Back story: I applied the blue-mod theme (see original thread) to my phone but not manually, i tried as dicribed but still getting error in android commander so i make a zip to flash. I creat bluemod_zip based on the mod by user jinjamal in xda (great mod sir!!!)
I sucessful created a install zip, but how to unninstall? I didn't know..I started to think and I came with a way to do it!!

Ladies and gentelmen I present you the files:


>>>Download (it says green but is the blue mod!)<<<<<

>To those who have stock rom: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?6w7m9b2lrx8gs87

>To those who have jaggy rom: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?z06ue2ur76s393e

How to install/unninstall: zip of the folder in download (mod ou unmod) in sdcard, then just enter in recovery and "install zip from sd card"...Enjoy!! How simple is that???

I will try to get this working this weekend, also for everyone else, try to use this forum for HTC explorer development rather than the Facebook group, makes things easier for everyone.

Don't forget to vote so that the HTC explorer gets its known section, (sorry I don't know the link, you can search for it).
And lastly if anyone has free time, try to help modafoca with porting cyanogenmod, do it for the community.
Thanks.

Get boot.img tools from here- https://github.com/sakindia123/kernel-htc-pico

Split both Htc Explorer and Desire C boot.img's
Code:
tools/mkbootfs boot | gzip > unpack/boot.img-ramdisk-new.gz
mkdir -p target_img
tools/mkbootimg --kernel unpack/boot.img-zImage --ramdisk unpack/boot.img-ramdisk-new.gz -o target_img/boot.img --base `cat unpack/boot.img-base`
cp target_img/boot.img output
COmpare bootclasspath and init scripts and take care of permissions,esp. ril and radio
Asus Nexus 7(2012): AOSP Kitkat(Android 4.4) @1.5 Ghz
