****This thread is now only for the 4.1.xx series of cyanogen ROMs. For the newer versions, please see the thread by Radix999 - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=568032
Please keep in mind that the port files from Radix's thread will likely work fine on these versions. If not, I may use the updated kernels to make 4.1.xx compliant kernel packages. We'll see.

*************************************************************************************
New Process to Port Cyangen ROMs
*************************************************************************************
  1. Use CyanogenMod Updater to download the Dream/32B ROM
  2. Choose either Apply Now or Apply Later as per the onscreen instructions
  3. When the new ROM has been applied, apply the signed-cyan-32a-port_v4.x.x.zip below to port to 32A
  4. Done :)
--OR --

  1. Download the most recent Cyanogen ROM (either experimental or stable)
  2. Push it to your SD card
  3. Download the newest port-update from below (ie. signed-cyan-32a-port_v4.x.x.zip or rad-4.1.11.1-kernel etc)
  4. Push it to your SD card
  5. Reboot into recovery
  6. Apply Cyanogen ROM
  7. Apply signed-cyan-32a-port_v4.x.x.zip
  8. Reboot and enjoy

This update.zip contains the files that are updated with a ROM is ported from 32B -> 32A (wlan.ko, kernel, AudioPara4.csv, etc)
This should work on ANY cyanogen ROM. The only required updates will be if the kernel is updated (even then this should continue to work).

This update.zip could easily be made to use a more universal kernel (not cyanogen specific) and could be used to port any 32B ROM.

All kernels are courtesy of TigerTael and Cyanogen.

I was thinking about trying this out myself, it's a good thing someone with more knowledge did it before me :D

Anyway, is Wi-Fi working fine? I tried the latest CyanogenMod port for the 32A (3.6.8.1) and Wi-Fi didn't work, it just stayed at "Obtaining IP Address" and nothing else.

It worked for me. I know one person who tried it reported that they were having issues with obtaining an IP. I do not have the issues though.

Interested to know if wlan actually works.

I've made several ports of dream roms (including cyanogen's) myself using the same instructions, but each time wifi will see AP, can connect.. but never gets an ip and comes up 'Connection unsuccessful' then keeps retrying.
I've tried a couple of your older ports that you posted in threads too bcrook and had the same issues.

What radio are you using bcrook?

With the exception that it has the bleeding edge donut and community additions and the usual cyanogen enhancements. We can't take advantage of the kernel, but we can at least take advantage of the latest apps he's compiled for us.

I'll give it a try and post back here if I have any issues.

UPDATE: bcrook is right - wifi works like a charm otb! Nice work! :)

This is very good news! I'll give it a try then, I've been craving for Cyanogen's latest stuff on my 32A :D

Could you please add the htc magic boot screen in your build. Thought something was wrong when the screen went black. Lol. Thanks for the port. Testing now!
 
So I have a very basic conversion of the Sapphire 32B port Cyanogen's experimental 3.9.7 ROM to 32A

Original Dream thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=537204
Port to 32B: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=538633
Steps I took: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=4040214&postcount=23

Thanks to Cyanogen, jerpelea, Amon_RA, hakyuro, and anyone else who has helped.

I added in the HTC keyboard, some wallpapers from the Palm Pre theme, ringtones from cupcake, etc. I also pushed wlan.ko, AudioPara4.csv and busybox.

I have tested this on my Rogers Magic and everything I can think of is working. No compcache, swap, etc because it uses the regular Magic kernel not the customized one used in the Dream ROM.

I wanted to update the palm pre theme also. So I flashed the 3.9.5 Pre theme.
but it didnt boot so i took the boot.img from signed-cyanm-3.9.7-32a.zip and flashed it in fastboot mode. (fastboot flash boot boot.img)
Now it works fine! me like!
:)

Must say its very fast!


EDIT:
It was buggy as hell so now wiped everything and will try to flash KspecOreo_v39.zip (theme for dream i think)

EDIT AGAIN:
Didnt boot,
but somehow working when I got into fastboot mode and, fastboot boot boot.img (original boot.img from cyanogen 3 9 7 32A)

You can try this if you want. Someone requested it from me in a pm...I believe it works fine.
http://briancrook.ca/magic/signed-1.8r1_cyan3.9.5_32a.zip

Its the pre-themed version of 3.9.5

Same thing happened to me, freaked me right out. I will look into it. Sorry about that!
