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?
