As you know, all of this would have been easier if Mediatek had released the source code of their MT6582 processor, or if Karbonn was creating updates for their devices. THEY AREN'T.
@superdragonpt did build a few Kitkat kernels for Mediatek MT6582 devices, but, apparently he is busy, and does not want to be bothered by us, so don't disturb him.
@Entropy512 (of the OmniROM team) explained it here :
See post 67, 68, 69 and 70.
I had ported the Xperia ROM v3 successfully, and it even had the new Xperia Nav Bar. But, as I was uploading it, my hard drive broke down. It was in my SD Card, but that build had just a few minor changes over Xperia ROM v2 that could be done with the Xposed Framework and GravityBox. So, I thought it would be better just to discontinue it.
If you guys can find anyone who can help in building a Kitkat kernel for this device, or even learn it yourself and create a working boot.img from that, then Android Version updates for this device can continue. Else, we are stranded with Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
Hope I helped till now !
Ps. : Guys, get someone to build or help me build a new Kitkat boot.img for our device, please. You'll be grateful to yourselves.
If you're wanting to port Jelly Bean 4.2.2 ROMs from other devices to this device, then check this page out : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...RMv7_Quad_Core
THANKS ! THANKS ! THANKS ! THANKS ! THANKS ! THANKS ! THANKS ! THANKS ! THANKS ! THANKS !
Yaay ! @superdragonpt (finally) can help for our device's updates !!!
It is Karbonn Titanium S5 Plus, a clone of Coolpad 7295C, having Android 4.2.2 Jelly bean, 4 GB Internal storage, 1 GB RAM, Mediatek MT6582 chipset, An Oncell IPS Screen, external SD Card support of up to 32 GB, DUAL-SIM, Kernel version 3.4.5, having an aspiring dev like me asking great devs like you to make Kitkat kernels for his device.
Same specs as the Android One (Indian) devices, but with a lower Android version, a lower Kernel version and only a few ROMs. Waiting for new updates, occasionally tried some, etc. etc. etc.
I can go on all day or even all year, if you ask me.
I was trying out this Carbon ROM that I was porting over here, so could you just look into it? And also, could you just give some info on how to port newer Lollipop ROMs to this device ? Thanks again.

Again, THANKS !
Precisely the problem I have been working on since I first created this thread : Porting ROMs having different Android versions to different devices having the same SoC. It isn't that easy. I have been going head over tail everyday, trying to fix it. Multi-device compatibility isn't that easy.
Summary : I wish it were, BUT IT ISN'T THAT EASY !
