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.

Watch out, there have apparently been a few bricks from trying to create flashables for L

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?

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
