Question [Q] Porting android 4.4

Hello. Prompt, please, can I port android 4.4 (in this case CyanogenMod 11) in this manual ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexu...od-11-t2515305 )? Is it even possible to port it, at least 4.0. Sorry for my bad English.

No drivers. It is completely infeasible. Stop asking.
I miss Windows Mobile.

The HP touchpad just got CM11 and it uses the same snapdragon s3 APQ8060 as the jetstream. Maybe its possible to port that?

the problem is the HTC drivers, which cannot be ported from any other device. maybe there's something in the HP.

As silly as it may sound. I literally now have no use for my jetstream as I am fully fed up of the OS it has. I have it rooted and CWM 6.0 installed on it and flashed BMW Boy rom on it. At this point, I am willing to work with developers to come up with a custom rom for it. I will be more than happy to test it on my device if they need me to. Plus, I can provide any information needed about this device. I am getting into developing, so perhaps Jetstream could be used as an ultimate sacrifice lol.

Just rooted SGH-I317M (NOTE II-Rogers) and installed CM 11 Nightly on it. I refuse to go back to stock. Im loving my phone so much more.

Default can we?

Is it possible to build the drivers from scratch? Even if it is not for free we can all pitch in and pay a developer. Hopefully HTC can help despite our many failed efforts. I am willing to pay to get this device up to date, it feels to wrong to let something so full of potential go to waste. Even today it still looks better than most tablets available. I love my jetstream !

Go to www.codeaurora.org and find the Android for MSM project. I tried to backport some of the code from that project into Hive kernel.
