The best bet for device to device port would be to use the porting tool, and then tidy up whatever's left broken based on logs which obviously depends on what's broken. :P

No worries, Ubuntu counts as linux. first step downjload XmasterNinni porting tool from the folloiwng link

https://github.com/Z.../zipball/master

Open the file with archive manager and extract it to your home folder.

Once that is done open up the terminal you can usually do that by ctrl+alt+t

In the terminal use the "CD" command to get to the portingtool foler. once there type in command

/portingtool.sh

the instructing for using the tool are quite self explanatory. It is trial and error sometimes you get flashable roms sometimes you don't. I am not tech enough to fix what is broken on them unfortunately...

If any on the devs who use these forums have any tips on how to fix issues with faulty roms or any beginner guides at being able to runderstand logcats for things like broken wifi or roms that don't flash if they could post it i would appreciate it

(Sorry for the questions)

I think it depends which ROM you used as the base, if you used the portingtool and were porting 2.3.5 it doesn't matter, if you used 2.3.7 flash the tmv kernel straightaway afterwards as per the instructions on the original topic for the rom.. But this is only an assumption on my part

I just ported this ROM http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1849750 to our devices,and it booted up but USB-Mass storage won't work gonna post a Logcat soon

@UK DUDE: Get Dazzozo's respective Cm build, and got to /system/usr/idc and take all the files you don't have, that's how i fixed it. At least if you are talking about getting the mouse cursor
