Default Port past Sense builds to HTC one?

I thought I would post this just out of curiosity and open up the discussion, has anybody ever tried to build a kernel that would support port development on past sense builds?

As far as i know the kernels and drivers will not allow back porting, especially touchscreen driver, so if someone wants to port a previous sense version, say sense 3.0, the developer would have to edit alot of files in order for the phone to accept the flash and even then there's no guarantee that the phone will be operational after due to touchscreen drivers. That why you wont be seeing any backports on this device and countless others but there are a few devices that have back ports.

I seem to remember someone around these forums talking about trying to port old school Windows Mobile 6.5 to the GSM One. Haven't seen anything about the project being finished though.

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

Windows mobile is closed source and licensed so even if he was able to port it he wouldn't be allowed to upload it for the public
