This is not work at all thanks to the XDA DEVELOPERS who made porting easy all credit goes to them iam just sharing it..

So lately so many custom Roms are ported and i thought let's share how to port a custom Rom in easy steps!! Did i said easy steps? yes!! porting is that easy shuffling things from here to there replacing files and you are done so let's start how to port a rom.

Notice
First Iam not Responsible if you somehow brick your phone always make a backup. Second This will not work on MIUI and LEWA SINCE YOU NEED THE RAMDISK FILES in next tutorial i will tell you how to pack and unpack the boot.img to get the Ram disk...

Things you Need


  • Open Mind other wise not possible ;)
  • Any working Rom for your phone
  • Rom to port
  • Rooted Phone

Remeber!!! All Rom will not work on your device

  1. First of all you need to choose a porting rom of phone with similar spec's as your phone have i.e Processor,Ram,internal Storage,size,Camera and same android version otherwise it will not boot up
  2. Then make two folders one named base and second named port
  3. Put any working Rom files for your phone to folder named base
  4. Then put the downloaded working Rom you want to port to the folder named port
Copy these files from stock to port:
System/etc/firmware (whole folder).
System/lib/modules (whole folder).
System/usr/keylayout/generic.kl
Meta inf/.../update script
Meta inf/.../ update binary
Boot.img

Repack it in Zip folder not Rar..Put it into the root of your SD go into recovery wipe data wipe cache and flash your created Rom and you are done Happy Porting ;) Please give feedback if got success and need anyhelp.. Dont Forget to click the thanx button. This is all i need in Return :cowboy:

Question: I have a stock rom of my Samsung Express i437. I have located everything you mention in the System folder but there is nothing named Meta Inf/ in my ROM and no file named "update script" or "update binary". So can you give me some guidance here on what I am supposed to do. All the other folders and files have been located. Where do I find Meta inf/.../update script and Meta inf/.../ update binary?

status 6 error is due to wrong updater script so edit ur updater script very carefully specialy in writing those mounting lines of run program nd also remove format system line if any !!

Now this Status 0 error is due to update binary file located in meta-inf folder.
To fix this just took out update binary file from any rom which works on ur phone nd then copy it nd paste it in ur port rom's meta-inf folder.
Problem done now u will not get any status 0 ,6,7 error.!!
Nd one more thing this guide is for mediatek smart phones not htc or samsung phones!!
