I'm going to give it a go when I've finished downloading from a site that virgin have already blocked on windows.

What kernel does it use?

It depends on which ROM you use as base...

The tool changes the whole boot.img, so, if you port a 2.3.5 ROM it uses the Stock Kernel.

I'll add some tips on how to get things working after porting in post #3 later... ;)

Ah...

If you have a Skate, put the Blade ROM into Skate/port_rom.

Let the base_rom folder as it is.

And read the readme first, there's an importanant note!

Did you first start the tool, then extract the ROM you want to port to Skate/port_rom and finally continue?

hi

i want to port this blade rom : free_romT2 to a zte skate phone

what i have done

1) i installed cygwin : ok

2) i extract the portingtool archive to Cygwin/home/your_user_name : ok

3) i start Cygwin, then type "cd portingtool", then type "./portingtool.sh" (if you type only ./portingtool it doesnt work) : ok

then in cygwin

i choose 1 - portingtools

b - zte skate

a - continue

a - android 2.3.5

i unzipped free_romT2 to \portingtool\Skate\port_rom\

and now i have to download the zte skate 2.3.5 rom (skatie rom) i don't understand why have i to download a skate rom

i download it : ok

then i choose in cygwin

a- continue

and then "Your zip is here: /Skate/port_rom/port.zip Just flash the zip in a Recovery"

but it seem to be a porting of skatie rom not porting blade rom ???

Can you take a look at \portingtool\Blade and \portingtool\Skate

in \portingtool\blade there is 3 files "download_2.3.5~", "extract_files_2.3.5~" and "first_step_2.3.5~"

but no file in \portingtool\Skate

thanks

Hi.

Why do you think, that its a Skatie Port?

I used the ROM Skatie by C3C0 as the 2.3.5 base_rom.

It should be definitly the "free_romT2" port.

Have you already flashed it?
