    Hi guys me again (Official Noob) trying to port a rom using Gannon's tutorial/guide. I'm having some problems. I got it to boot, Installed a different launcher (because the original wont work) and basically it's running to my surprise, however many things don't work. I keep getting a constant message saying "android.process.acore" bblah blah blah. I did some research and found no solution. The phone app isn't working, the contacts app isn't working, also when trying to type something up using the keyboard it will close due to the acore message. I'm sure they're interrelated. Also the statusbar will have a sort of cutoff when using some apps.

    Here is the rom I am trying to port.
    [ROM] IOSdroid M1 - xda-developers

    If it's too much of a job for me or just too much of a trouble to help me with I'll understand

    Haha small world. That guy, kssood, has learned everything he knows from me. Lol I basically ported that ROM for him
    But back to the business: I wouldn't port from that one. I would port this one: [ROM][2.3.7] JOYOS v1.1.6 [4/10/2012] - xda-developers

    It has info on there about the .acore and stuff, so you'll be able to do it yourself.

    So I got as far as fixing some issues and all. I'm still having problems trying to figure out how to fix mms, I've read your guide and I don't know what to do. I don't know how to use apk tool, how to decompile files, and all of that. I'm not sure if I have to do it but oh well.

    So how do I fix mms? Can you make it as noob friendly and simple as possible?

    Apktool is actualy quite simple once set up correctly
    What you need to do is to download the androidsdk, then download platform tools.

    Then you add the folder containing your platform tools to the PATH in the properties of the computer, so that way you can open up command prompt and jist type "apktool"

    Before I ramble any further... does any of this make sense?

    So far I understand I need download the files, decompress them (if I need to) into a folder, and place that folder into another location. Am I right?

    Yes yes!! You also need to add java to your variable PATH so apktool can access the java code.

    Once you get it set up, you just type away

    Apktool -d apkyouwanttodecompile.apk C:/locationyouwanttoputthedecompiledapk/nameofapk

    That decompiles^^

    Then

    Apktool -b C:\placeyouputapk\apkname

    And boom, its built. Just remember you need to sign the built apk using signjar.jar

    Edit: I use windows 7

    The nice thing about using Linux, is there is no need to miss with paths for apktool. Just drop all three files in /usr/local/bin/ after giving them both root, and making them excitable.

    Okay, here is what I did, I got the files "apk tool", and "apk tool install windows" and extracted them to the computer> local disk (c> windows> system32.
    I also installed java in the same directory however whenever I type in "apktool" into the command it gives me a message saying "'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command"

    That means it can't find it

    right click on computer and select properties, then select advanced system settings, then select environment variables. Then scroll down till you see PATH, and click edit. Then at the end of the list put a ";" and then add C:\whereveryourfolderis\java (if the subfolder java is in is called that) and then just click ok.

    Then try typing apktool again into the prompt.


    @earthnfire, I bet its so simple... my dad wont let me partition his hard drive though

    What is the specific location of the apktool and the specific location of the java files ( the C:\name\name thingy)

    Well I originally just installed it in the default location. I think you should just tell me where to install everything in a noob way

    Haha ok. So... java installs to C:\Program Files (x86)\java\jdk1.5.0 (assuming you have java 1.5 installed). It will be different depending on what java installed. Just look in the location I just mentioned and use the latest version of java.

    Then follow what I said before and add this location C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\name of the java subfolder add that to the path variables as I described in a previous post.....

    Currently in your PATH, there probably should only be something like C:\Program Files

    Therefore to add another, you simply put C:\Program Files;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.5.0 (OR WHATEVER THE JAVA FILE IS ACTUALLY CALLED)

    That should do it for the java problem

    Edit: I tried to put it as noobishly as possible if I'm doing a terrible job explaining, google may render better results

    Okay so this is all that came before. "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Roxio Shared\DLLShared\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Roxio Shared\DLLShared\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Roxio Shared\12.0\DLLShared\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Shared;C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\Windows\System32\java"

    Then without a space or quotes I entered this. ";C:\Program Files (x86)\java\jre6"
    I still get the bad command :/

    I believe you need a jdk installed, not a jre. Jre = runtime environmemt jdk = all the java files. If you have a jdk in the java folder use that instead of the jre6.

    Oh and also.... you MUST run the command prompt as administrator or else it will not have access to the java. That actually could be your problem

    Edit: jre is ok, I think it will work if your run in administrator.

    Okay so I added entered this C:\Program Files (x86)\java\jre6\bin
    Then I get a message saying "unable to access jarfile C:\System32\\apktool.jar"
    I'm sorry I'm probably being really annoying, if you wish not to help anymore I can understand however if you do want to help what do I do next? I appreciate your patience and help!

    I don't know about you guys, but I just put apktool and all it's other needed files in a folder and opened terminal, CD'd to the directory, and ran
    Code:
    java -jar apktool.jar d apk.apk
    And for recompiling
    Code:
    java -jar apktool.jar b apk
    Of course I have the sdk and java installed.

    Make sure now that you have C:\System32 added to your path (the resting place of the apktool).
    No I'm not getting tired of helping, I'm just getting tired.... imma fall asleep :yawn:

    I'm trying to get mms to work on a rom I'm trying to port. I may have something though! I'm not out yet!
    I held shift, ctrl and right clicked in a folder that I extracted the apktool files, then chose "open command window here" and entered apktool and I believe it's working now!

    Okay so I decompiled the framework.jar for the BASE and then got a folder called "out" inside I got "apktool.yml"
    What do I do next?

    After decompiling, don't you replace the CDMAdispatcher or something like that from another Gingerbread rom?
