Hello mates,



Today I am back with the new Port Tool , which will help you to port android roms more smoothly and fastly to your device . It will work on all linux like operating system and windows + cygwin too .

It is using some general set of rules of porting and I don't know actually the percentage of success .

Just try it! Hope is the key of success :thumbup:
There is a high chance of getting a ported ROM , if two devices have same configurations .

Tool itself is a guide . It has a simple ui and I explained everything on it .
The thing you need is two ROMs (base and a port ) in zip format .

It worked for me well,
this is just a working model of my port guide ( a compination of 3 others and my observations too )
something I noticed while porting different roms follows,
1 . Showing some errors like file doesn't exist on some roms (not a problem actually , but I just forgot to skip them )
2 . Some problems with updater-script (partition info )
EVERYTHING IS FIXED RIGHT NOW , and added more well known guides

This tool is at its initial state and i will update when i get some time (too busy with exams)
TRUST THIS TOOL LIKE A PORT GUIDE , NOTHING MORE THAN IT NOTHING LESS THAN IT !
