what can be ported here? i found "similar" phones that share same chipset but not same resolution, would i still be able to port?

only reason i want to do a port is becauese the cm12.1 for our device has broken camera , random reboots when wifi/mobile data is toggled, random reboots while in sleep mode and wireless data does not work....and i don know how to patch

I am trying to get from Samsung Galaxy A7(SM-A700H) 5.0.2 rom to Run on the (SM-A7000). The later don't have Google Apps. The file structure of the Stok does not look like that. I have a system.img.ext4 in the A700HXXU1BPB2_A700HOJVU1BPB1_A700HXXU1BOF7_HOME.tar.md5 file.

I can mount the system.img.ext4 in ubuntu and get the same file structure. but it is read only and gives me errors when I copy between the two images.

if one of you sessoned developers can help and port the files over It would really make my day.

Dum question =)))

I'm sorry to ask this but.. I think there might be a little mistake as BASE.zip is supposed to mean the working ROM and PORT.zip is also supposed to mean the ROM i want to port, right mate?

How to port roms to your Device

Sick of seeing roms for other devices ? wanna experience them in your device ?

Well here's a guide to teach you just that .

Code:
KEEP THESE POINTS IN MIND
               
                This guide wont make you a full fledged dev.
                It teaches you the basics of porting ROMS. 
                If anything happens to your device I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE for IT ! try it on your own risk !


So to begin before starting right away have a check list of these items -

Code:
The rom which you want to port for your device is named here as [B]BASE[/B] 
            The rom which is already working for your device is called here as [B]PORT[/B]
             Your final ROM is in PORT

STEP 1

Grab a rom
Make sure to grab a rom of same resolution. for ex- 320x480.
And prefer to use the roms with same android version. for ex - android 4.0.4=android 4.0.4
also prefer to use roms from same manufacturer for ex - use htc desire S for htc desire HD
use either aosp or cm 7,9 or 10 working for your device as port
Download and install notepad++ and a archiver. ( I use winrar)

STEP 2

3PNGPNG_zps764c6a51.png


First open both the roms side by side in the zip form
perform these actions in PORT.zip
Go to system> then delete the app,media,fonts & framework folders.
now drag and drop the app,media,fonts & framework folders from base.zip to ported.zip



STEP 3

Now go to the etc folder in base.zip and the port.zip now see if the base.zip has any extra files other than those in the port.zip
if you find any put them in your etc folder of port.zip

STEP 4


4_zpsdb409c3b.png




Now open buid.prop file using Notepad++ and make changes to these of Port.zip
ro.build.id=
ro.build.display.id=
ro.build.date=
ro.modversion=

In build.prop file change these to same as Port Rom build.prop values. you can find these in additional build properties

5_zps67756f9e.png


6_zpsb8e74cca.png


ro.config.ringtone=
ro.config.notification_sound=
ro.config.alarm_alert=

If you want to port for htc devices try this if you face issues :

to fix network auto select,
decompile framework-res.apk
go to \framework-res\res\values\bools.xml change
<bool name="skip_restoring_network_selection">true</bool>
to false.

to fix graphichal issues,

decompile framework.jar

change these files with cm9 base

smali\smali\android\os
Environment
SystemProperties
smali\smali\android\view
HardwareCanvas
HardwareRenderer$Gl20Renderer
HardwareRenderer$GlRenderer
HardwareRenderer


Happy porting ! ;) :good:

Thank you for a great post. I have a noob question. I can unpack the system.img from my stock ROM into a folder of files to do all these import from another ROM. However, after I'm done with import and editing build.prop, how do I re-pack these files back into either a system.img (for Odin) or system.new.dat (for flashing under recovery)? Thanks

yes you can
but be sure to choose the rom you wanna port from a device having same resolution i.e same as your mesmerize

Hey bro, i flashed aosp extended and resurrection remix unofficial version both with nougat in my Micromax canvas fire 4 a107. All was good but whenever i made a call after 10 to 20 seconds of calling my both sim networks would go nil and call would auto disconnect. Doing *#*#4636#*#* and changing wcdma preferred to gsm auto prl would extend call upto 2 minutes and again network would go and again checking in *#*#4636#*#* would show network mode wcdma preferred again. Is there any way to fix it?

For the same issue i am trying to port those roms rr and aex with my stock mmx a107 rom. How should i port it so that problem would get fixed? Thanks in advance. [email protected]

    just look for roms in lg p500 or galaxy ace if you like any port them
    but remember to take their developers permissions first

    Two more Galaxy gio and most important HTC Wildfire S.
