Hi there guys I'm interested in porting a rom for an Android tv box, the box in question is called the q-box there is two types the earlier one has the s905 amologic chip the newer one has s905x chip otherwise they are the same except for the 905 having Android 5.1 and the 905x having Android 6 will it be easy to port the 905x firmware to work with the 905?

Mostly depends on device but if you going to do ROM then do kernel to match

Meant to reply someone else.

i wanna know that if i want to port a lineage os rom .should i change my stock kernel with lineage kernel?lineage doesnt work with stock kernel

In most cases, patched stock boot.img is used. So search for custom roms for your device or you have to patch boot yourself.

how are you gonna say delete the system/app and then you say put the files back into the system/app you just deleted? i think you need to re-read what you quoted from the source and then re-edit it. to some,the experienced,may know what you meant. to a beginner,hmmmm quite confusing.

Boot.img

I thought we may need to change stuff in boot.img? Im porting a rom made for a different device so do i need to change boot.img? Does the kernel need to be changed? Or do I leave it all alone? Help me please :D :) :eek: :good: :fingers-crossed: :good: :rolleyes:
