Good day all,

I was able to modify a GPE ROM to work on the Verizon M8. I would love help from more knowledgeable members to maybe get this thing to take off. But I have a few questions:

1. What forum should it go in?
2. Would it be worth posting?

Working:

Boots
Bluetooth

Not Working:

Wifi
3G/4G/LTE

Thanks!

It would go into Android development, you could add WIP to the title name if you post it. Maybe some of the devs can help getting data to work, does calls/sms work?

Calls and SMS do not work. I currently have no cellular connectivity.

Love to see threads like this

For the data/cell, move over the libril* file(s) in /system/lib from our Verizon stock ROM to the GPE ROM (do one at a time) and see if that fixes the issue with data. Also may want to verify the build.prop references the appropriate RIL ffilename if different from in GPE build.prop.

For SMS/MMS, try moving the *apns* files from /system/etc on our Verizon stock rom to GPE and again see if that fixes the SMS/MMS issue. If that doesn't resolve it, it's probably buried in the framework-res.apk under /xml/. You could try extracting the contents of the Verizon framework-res.apk and simply copy over the /xml/apns.xml into the GPE framework-res.apk.

Biggest advice I can give you is only move and test 1 file at a time. Sounds Tedious but it will save you sooo much time in the long run.

Good to see you working on this

Awesome to see you here myn, the WIP thread has been posted in Android Development but if you don't mind I copied this post and pasted it in the other thread. Thanks for the advice really am looking forward to this awesome rom

Can I pull all the files and then push them one at a time without having to restart?
