Default [Q] TMO Wi-Fi Calling for UVMC 6 TW

Definitely need Wi-Fi Calling in the area where I live.
I have seen apps that offer Wi-Fi Calling from the UVMC 6 Release by TMO but some of them don't.

What files do I need to manipulate (I'm guessing some .so files from lib and .jar files from framework) would I need to put Wi-Fi calling into my ROMs that are UVMC 6 but may not have Wi-Fi calling?

Anybody have any ideas or leads that I can follow?

Thank you.

Seriously...take this advice...Just install a tmo based rom.

This is a catch 22. If you were good enough to add tmo wifi calling to a non-native rom, you'd be building your own kernels from scratch and would be experienced enough to know how. In not saying you're not experienced because I don't know. What I do know is what you're asking for is 1. not easy and 2. not for beginners.

Edit: and I forgot the most important thing...tmo's wifi calling is a closed source feature so there's no code to build from.

Well see that's the thing. I am using a native T-Mobile ROM (uvmc6) latest release with their radio...not sure about kernel but it is just missing the feature WiFi calling.

Do you have wifi calling enabled? Is it enabled on your account? Do you have the proper SIM? Has it worked before for you?

Okay. It is the stock rom; debloated; deoed and zip aligned.
On the past stock ROM (Same radio, same kernel, same release (UVCM6)), I had wi-fi calling working. This is a new ROM (the awesome Embryo 6.11 to be exact) and I am trying to get the files necessary from a native UVCM6 ROM with wi-fi calling working onto the Embryo ROM.

Sum it up:
-Currently Using Embryo 6.11 (debloated UVCM6) ROM without Wi-Fi Calling feature.
-Trying to put the files from a Tmo released stock UVCM6 ROM with Wi-Fi calling feature.

Need the files necessary

I don't think embryo has been rebased.

I see in the release notes they added wifi calling:
Quote:
14-APR-2013
* [6.11] T989 - UVMC6 binary bits and blobs added.
* [6.11] T989 - UVMC6 wifi calling apk added
* [6.11] T989 - UVMC6 extra apks added in /data. Install via ROMCustomizer -> Apk Management -> TMOBILE tab.
* [6.11] updated to UCMC1 binaries and other binary blobs.
* [6.11] updated to Cymbaline 3.6
* [6.11] Added BLN support in ROM Customizer.
* [6.11] Swype keyboard updated if you are facing issue with Swype please read post #1937.
My suggestion is ask in the thread if that option is not showing up on your phone. And make sure its not there. If its not maybe re-flash the ROM.

DONATE TO ME
The embryo ROM is based on the skyrocket from AT&T. Its not a native Tmo build. Yes, stuff was added for WiFi calling but the code is not intended to work with it. Try another rom. I sure could use WiFi calling as well but seeing as I need a new sim card(to lazy to get a new one) I switched back to embryo from countless Tmo 4.1.2 ROMs. I guess its the theme that got me lol
To answer your question, no. WiFi calling won't work on the Embryo ROMs.

There's Jedi Mind Trick, Infamous, Jellybeast and a couple other stock ROMs in the dev section that run as smooth as embryo minus the customization. Just give the ROMs some time to add custom features...

Well, I know all this. He did an awesome job with the ROM with customization and everything. I like Embryo probably the best of all the TW Roms. But even with his inclusion of wi-fi calling apk, the framework didn't transfer over for TMO UVMC6. I am hoping in his next release he will work on it.

But, what i was hoping to make was a flashable zip file with the necessary framework and apk to add on to his ROM. I wanted to know if devs knew what files were workable with.
