I am new to android and was wondering can we use another android phones rom on a another phone? Like can we use Galaxy Mini Cyanogenmod on Xperia Mini? And Can we do this by changing the firmware or kernel version?

You can't use Galaxy Mini Cyanogenmod on Xperia Mini . Other wish you break your phone.

As stated above only do this if you need a brick. Only flash things ment for your device.

u cant use a rom
but there is something called porting
u cant even flash kernel because drivers are different
but there are some things u can use like stock apps that too if its same version

Dude you asked the same question thrice, just differently worded. For god's sake.

Read up on porting ROMs if you want to know how a ROM for one device is made to work on another. It usually requires a device specific kernel that's made to be compatible with the other device's ROM, and then there's resizing work to be done for all the apps if the other device's screen is of a larger resolution.

Judging by your questions, it's obvious you don't have any developer knowledge, and porting requires quite a bit of it. So, for the last time, NO you can't do whatever you're asking.

same specs device
hi,
i have a similar question but for an identical hardware phones.
my device is with mt6577 cpu (neo n002), and running ICS i searched for a JB rom but didn't find one.
there are other devices with that chipset even same ram (size), screen resolution, maybe same camera, so i wonder if i can port
the JB rom to my device or even install the rom as it is?
if so, can i keep specific drivers from the ICS version, in case i get a problem with gps/camera/mic.....?

thanx.
