It didn't work, so I am going to stick with the old ROM I have til I get someone who has ported a ROM in the past(already talking to him) to help me get it ported. Purity ROM from what I heard is alot smoother than CM11, so I want that ROM.

I need some help! I want to port LG O1 Kitkat ROM to LG ONet. They have the same specs, the ONet just has a 800MHz cpu. I don't know what ROM should I use as base, because for ONet there was just cm7.2/9/10 and there is no 10.1/10.2/11 for my phone. Is it safe to use cm 10 as base and cm 11 as port? And i've heard that you need cwm 6 to flash kitkat roms, is it true? I have cwm 5 and haven't encountered any problem flashing cm10(latest rom for my phone).

    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

    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:

    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.
