Port JellyBean Rom from Galaxy Ace II GT-i8160

EDIT: Official Development Thread Now Open:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=38911651



I opened this thread hoping that some dev would be interested in porting this rom to our Wonder.

Do i think it could be done? I'm not sure that's why i'm asking.

Do i think it's possible? Of course! that's why i opened this thread.

We have a working, super smooth, fantastic CM10 already, why want this?

Of course i love CM10, Arco's latest update Alpha 6 is super smooth. I'm using it right now. But i'm just thinking of the benefits if somebody would be able to port this rom. This is a stock Samsung rom, meaning we can have a fully working:

1) Original Samsung Camera 2) Original Samsung FM Radio

Perhaps there are some other things, but these 2 are worth mentioning.

Here's a comparison with our phone and why i think it's possible to port this rom:

Code:
                           SGW i8150                    SGA 2 i8160      

cpu                     1.4 Ghz                           800Mhz dual core
ram                     512 Mb                           768 Mb
internal              4 Gb (2 Gb rom)            4 Gb              
display               480x800                         480x800
Click here for a detailed comparison

Of course there are some challenges, big challenge i guess:

1. The chipsets are different, SGW is using a Qualcomm MSM8255T Snapdragon, while SGA II uses NovaThor U8500

2. The GPU's are also different. SGW: Adreno 205 SGA II: Mali-400


Here's the link to the thread hosting the official JellyBean update for the Samsung Galaxy Ace II

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2139206

But hey! who knows what our great devs here can do with it.
So, let's pray that someone would be interested and take the challenge.

It's going to be great if we get this ROM. I guess it's needed to change drivers only, but if it's only that, I still don't know how hard it is.

For the chipset and related drivers i think that we can use Arco68's JB 3.0.XX Kernel

Yes we do, unfortunately they are very much focused on CM right now. So let's just hope.
I'm trying to contact some developers from other threads on this also, but no progress yet.
