[Q] How simple it is to port rom from Desire Z?

18 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hello.

Im not a coder or anything, but i began to wonder how hard it is to port a rom from desire z to u8800.

Some of you have experience on this so can you tell how hard it is? I think that it would need atleast following:

1. Deodexed desire z rom and u8800 rom.

2. changing libraries. I mean those . so files.

I have read this guide, but i got error 0 when flashing:

[DEV][sENSE] Porting sense to other sense devices (XDA site)

Hopefully you can give some tips.

Jesse.

AOSP based roms like CM7, MIUI are easy to do. Sense will be pretty difficult. I don't even know if Sense can be done.

Okay

I took the sense topic as example, as it has lot of info that needs to be replaced.

Well if i want to port the miui, where should i began?

There are alot of guides, but i cant understand them and i think it would be simpler to port a rom from device that has same kind of hardware. I don't have a lot of experience on coding, but i want to try.

@Fibblesan

Can you give me a short guide how did you port the miui, so i can try to port one too?

Mostly now in the beginning i would appreciate the info how did you make it to run.

Get a file comparing tool like winmerge and compare miui desire z with the u8800 build. make a note of any file differences. Any files that are only in the desire build can be removed as they aren't needed. libs, wpa_supplicant and wifi libs are the most important things. remove any specifically for the desire and use files only for the u8800.

It's not something I can make a guide for as it really needs you to spend some time looking for file differences. Once you know what the different files are you can make a list of them to assist you in future roms.

I'm interested in porting too.

A question: I want to port CyanogenMod on the phone, with what should I compare the files and where to get the libs? From the stock rom?

Sense should be possible. Tbh I don't think it'd be that much harder to port than any other Desire Z ROM

Where is the file? :P

But is it so easy like described in that guide (port sense guide), just delete and replace files?... I followed the guide in like 15 mins, then I realized I would not dare to flash the file I was making :P

I may be wrong but I thought Sense ROMs will only work with Sense Devices? Which the U8800 is not :D

Changed libs... Now i have destroyed my phone. Imei is 0. After flashing my cust got corrupted Realised that it formatted to ext3, and i had to format it because i have windows pc... It flashed a raw image of miui boot to my phone. I had blue screen, but then i reverted to stock rom. What to do now? To warranty in stock rom? Suggestions, please.
