I'm having trouble deodexing the lewa rom with dsixda kitchen. Any other tool or script that could help me out?

On a side note I still cant solve the dialer crashing issue.

hello all

I'm trying to port Lewa OS to my phone.

But there is one thing I don't manage to do : enable soft-keys (because my phone has no hardware keys)

I tried :

- qemu.hw.mainkeys=0 --> no effect wheras it works in all my other ROMs
- modifying in framework-res.apk config_shownavigationbar=true in bools.xml --> no effect


Does anyone have a clue ? :confused:

Hi I ported JoyOS (not with this guide) but I get SystemUI.apk FC and android.process.acore FC.When I push libsqlite files from cm7 it doesn't even boot the same goes if I push libandroid_runtime file.What can I do?

For me, pushing a systemUI.apk from a different device with the same resolution fixed the systemui.apk force close. I can't remember if it fixed the acore problem though :)

    LewaOS Porting Guide

    Hey Folks !
    I am going to show you one of the easiest way to port LewaOS To Your Device, which will hardly take 2 minutes.

    PREREQUISITES :

    adb- This will help you out in deadly conditions
    winRAR - For opening zip files
    Notepad++ - For editing text

    ROMS YOU WILL NEED :

    Base ROM : CM7 For Your Device
    Mod edit: No longer available - see the note at the top of this post.
    NOTE:
    -----Use S5830 to port if your device is MDPI
    -----Use U8800X, V880 to port if your device is HDPI

    STEPS TO PORT :

    STEP 1:
    Open both ROMs using winRAR in two windows..No Need To Extract
    STEP 2:

    Go to '/system' and delete '/system/app', '/system/framework' and '/system/media' folder from Base ROM (CM7)
    STEP 3:

    Copy '/system/app' , '/system/framework' and '/system/media' folder from LewaOS to Base ROM.
    Copying can be done by simply drag and drop between the winRAR windows
    STEP 4:

    Go To '/system/bin' of Base ROM
    --Copy all files present in '/system/bin' to LewaROM.
    --Now from LewaROM copy all files from '/system/bin' folder to '/system/bin' of Base ROM
    --This replaces all existing files of same name and adds missing files
    STEP 5:

    Go To '/system/etc' of Base ROM
    --Copy all files (except the folders) from '/system/etc' of BaseROM to '/system/etc' of LewaROM
    --Now from LewaROM copy all files from '/system/etc' folder to '/system/etc' of Base ROM
    --This also replaces all existing files of same name and adds missing files
    STEP 6:

    Go To '/system/etc/init.d' of Base ROM
    --Copy all files '/system/etc/init.d' of LewaROM to '/system/etc/init.d' of BaseROM
    STEP 7:

    Go To '/system/etc/permissions' of Base ROM
    --Copy all files from '/system/etc/permissions' of BaseROM to '/system/etc/permissions' of LewaROM
    --Now from LewaROM copy all files from '/system/etc/permissions' folder to '/system/etc/permissions' of Base ROM
    STEP 8:

    Go To '/system/lib' of Base ROM
    --Copy all '*.so' from '/system/lib' of BaseROM to '/system/lib' of LewaROM
    --Now from LewaROM copy all files from '/system/lib' folder to '/system/lib' of Base ROM
    STEP 9:

    Go To /system/xbin of Base ROM
    --Copy all files present in '/system/xbin' folder to '/system/xbin' of LewaROM.
    --Now from LewaROM copy all files from '/system/xbin' folder to '/system/xbin' of Base ROM
    STEP 10:

    Open 'build.prop' from both ROM using Notepad++

    Add these lines below 'ro.cm.device=YOUR_DEVICE_NAME'
    ro.lewa.version=YOUR_ROM_NAME
    ro.lewa.device=YOUR_DEVICE_NAME
    Add these lines in # ADDITIONAL_BUILD_PROPERTIES below 'ro.com.android.dataroaming='

    ro.compcache.default=0
    ro.lewa.swapper.part_path=/dev/block/mmcblk1p3
    ro.lewa.swapper.flash_swappiness=99
    ro.lewa.swapper.sd_swappiness=60
    ro.error.receiver.system.apps=com.lewa.fc
    ro.error.receiver.default=com.lewa.fc
    persist.sys.notif-speaker=1
    persist.sys.ring-speaker=1
    persist.sys.alarm-speaker=1
    Remove the following lines

    persist.sys.themeId=Cyanbread
    persist.sys.themePackageName=com.tmobile.theme.Cyanbread
    Rename BaseROM to whatever and Flash It..
    Now Your Device has LewaOS

    Really nice.
    I have one question ( Sorry if it's dumb, but I am a noob).
    The base rom, CM7, should be a .tar file or a .zip ? Cause I have both. Thanks

    It should be .zip

    Thank you for the guide!
    When I validate my pin code, the phone bootloop ..

    CM7 as base
    U8800X to port

    Nexus S

    May be you havent followed correctly..
    OK .. Only for ROM to boot..
    Use CM7 Base ROM..
    Delete app, framework , media folder from base and copy the same folders from U8800x to base ROm
    It will boot..
    If Not Logcat will help you..
