I've been working to port the L Preview from Nexus 5 to HTC One M7 but having issues with updater script. A lot has changed and I have experience with ROMs compiling and flashing but I have never ported ROMs between devices. Anyone has experience doing so? Can work together then

How much has the script changed from KitKat? I don't have much experience with porting, but can help when I can.

Here's the full DMESG: http://pastebin.com/Gb38U9YD

What I've tried to do so far:

1. Copied app, priv app, media, fonts and framework folder from L preview to a GPE 4.4 ROM for HTC One along with certain files and libs like libart.so, etc and the boot.img
STATUS: Stuck on HTC Logo

2. Copied proprietary files from GPE 4.4 ROM for HTC One along with the boot.img to the L preview ROM.
STATUS: Stuck on HTC Logo

I also merged some code from the updater script of L preview ROM with the GPE ROM and vice versa, same issue.

Am I missing something?

what errors are you getting?

The error lies in the dmesg, I am seeing a lot of this:

E/kickstart-htc( 246): myexecv: fork+

E/kickstart-htc( 246): myexecv: fork-

E/kickstart-htc( 246): myexecv: waitpid+, pid=[540]

E/kickstart-htc( 540): myexecv: fork-

E/kickstart-htc( 540): myexecv: execv+

E/kickstart-htc( 246): myexecv: waitpid-, ret=[0]

You can't have sense stuff in an AOSP ROM. this is what you have, since gpe boot.img has sense style ramdisk and everything. Because gpe has sense stuff in framework etc then you'll need everything to match

I thought you'd have more chance from CM base because they're both aosp. Think of this, you can't port aosp ROMs with sense base :)

Ah, makes sense! Let me try merging stuff with CM, hopefully that will work

    Here's the first build of the ROM: PULLED, we will create a new thread soon

    Some instructions:

    1. It takes at least 10-15 minutes for it to boot up for the first time (ART optimization) so let it boot
    2. AFTER flashing ROM, flash this: http://download.clockworkmod.com/superuser/superuser.zip
    3. Wipe system, cache and dalvik cache BEFORE flashing the ROM and wipe cache and dalvik cache AFTER flashing the ROM. Repeat everytime you flash a build
    4. If you make any changes and upload the ROM, increment the build number in the ROM ZIP name, like l_port_htc_one_build2.zip, l_port_htc_one_build3.zip, etc. Makes it easy to track changes

    Guys, this has become a WIP development thread so can we keep it development only? Please avoid the posts such as:
    Good job!
    Download link pls?
    This will be my daily driver
    Can your port to [another device]?

    and any requests that have nothing to do with this port.

    Thanks.
