But has some understanding so If you could share porting procedures I may give a try... & if that didn't work... Surely will ask some N4 dev to help to port.

well if there aren't any problems then even your grandma should be able to port it :P

afaik - unlike OSX - iOS doesn't use EFI. and even if it would, this doesn't automatically give you the possibility to boot it on any device. (U)EFI is just for booting the OS, how many drivers are implemented using stuff like ACPI and how much needs full kernel drivers is up to the OS designer.

And looking at how many driver kernel modules both OSX and Linux need in UEFI boot mode I'd say UEFI does almost nothing.

Hey, I compiled nouefi lk for Xperia z3 Compact.
I tried to boot it with "fastboot boot lk.img", The device returned status that image was flashed propely, LED light remained blue as if device was still in fastboot mode, but I couldn't communicate with device. ( fastboot devices didn't show any devices connected) Xperia Z3 Compact has the same CPU as 1+1 (msm8974AC) What could be wrong?

I synced the repo, added device using my compiled boot img (stock with little mod. - working ), then compiled lk for sony/aries as added and chosed msm8974, Then I did as I said in the last post, LED was still blue, no fastboot communication with device and the finalize_device command also didn't work (like it was waiting for fastboot)
DT command, you mean when I am using dtbtool I have to add command from wiki? Also I used dtbtoolCM for preparing DT.img but it isn't a problem, is it?

I'll try building with current sources, but it should work just fine (but no LCD on fastboot boot)

NVM I just solved it, The kernel wasn't booting, The dt.img wasn't prepared correctly.

could i get some clues of the principal of operation? will alternate roms run on the sdcard, or slower for other reasons? likely to port successfully to the sgh-t989?

rom's can be stored on any filesystem, but usually either internal memory(datamedia) or sdcards are used.
The speed depends on the the speed of the sdcard. If you're using it in adoptable mode it's encrypted which makes it even slower.

the device uses a qcom APQ8060 wich is part of the msm8960 family so it should be pretty easy to port.
