It's time to port Lollipop for our phone.

First of all. I'm not a developer. I'm just a Computer Teacher. And i have some skills about linux and android.This project will be an educational for me too.

Fİrst of all, all thanks to feroxxx and Ravikirancg for helps


And there is a beta version. watch it​


Here is the link with feroxxx's words :)

Hi guys,
i'm sharing Omnirom 5.1 with you. This rom is not stable but you can use it if you don't mind camera. we know what is working and not working .
please dont write again and again same errors.
how to flash rom:
1.flash our twrp 2.8.7.0 recovery (linked below)
2.make a full backup
3.make a full wipe (exclude sdcard)
4.then flash omnirom 5.1 zip
5.reboot system
wait a bit and now taste a bit lollipop

A suggestion from me: Dont forget to take backup for your stock rom and omnirom seperatly. with this you can easily back to your stock rom and back again to omni.

I would like to ask you that whether uve seen the kernel source or not...its not complete. ravikiran was trying to get the kernel working and got few success on booting it. So i think first of all we should try getting the kernel source working.

I'm interested in helping in this project, the thing is that I do not have any previous experience in CM porting or android kernel building.

Do you have any links/documentation for how to do that? what will be of a great help if there is some high level overview of the activities, something like a road map, for example, we need to have the kernel sources, then we need to compile it, then what? I mean, something to lay out the milestones so we can seek for closure.

I've noticed that Sony Xperia Z2 (CM code name Sirius) is very close in terms of HW specs to E7, can that be leveraged for the sake of this effort?

Please let me know how I can help as I have he interest and time.

kernel

About building kernel i wanna point out tha kernel does seem to work just that it doesn't have display drivers I tried xperia z1 KitKat and that shows sign of booting but no display
Our best shot is with one plus one i guess. anyway i will be back trying again after 8th to get some kernel working. As it seems ravikiran and GTAraja is back too. Maybe we can finally get some Cyanogenmod goodness

just ask some good devs to build a bootable kernel for us..

Oneplus One devs could surely help us here because they both use the same size display from same manufacture JDI

some devs who could help us..

Kardeşim lollipop yaparsan süpersin var ya. Bende s4 var. Lollipop kullanıyorum. Çok beğendim. fakat arkadaşımda olduğu için yazıyorum. Gm kitkat için söz verdi temmuz 2014te fakat alt modeli discovery için bile verdi elite e vermedi. İnşallah romu yapabilirsin. Tanıdığım iyi arkadaşlar var . İngilizcen iyiyse sana çok yardımcı olurlar. @alemtro @AL_IRAQI @citymen34
Citymen34 özcan romu yapan bir Türk. Zamanları varsa sana yardımcı olurlar. Rom hakkında çok geniş bilgiye sahipler. Onların yaptıkları romları kullanıyorum.

in this situation you must send us a log so we can look at it and say whats wrong. about messages in turkish. a friend sai to me: we are waiting for kitkat update and then they will update the kernel. so you can get this kernel and work on it.

hi sorry for not posting logs actually twrp is not letting me copy logs every time i copy logs to sd-card the file is empty. Anyway there are only two errors
1. unable to execute update binary
2. unable to mount system
i think we need to build cm12 from one plus one source hoping that stock cm12/11 of one plus one would work directly was too much i guess. but kernel boots and display works means we can use one plus sources right?

its hard to say. it can be a yes or no. display problem is oone of our our problems. its workiing ok. but. opo uses snapdragon 801 and we use 800. opo have 16/64 gb and we have 16/32. so hoping to directly work is so far from us. but of course we can use some fatures from opo.
