[GUIDE] How I ported roms?How I Port Roms
* Base rom(CM7/CM9)
*Rom you want to port(Must be MDPI I believe)
*7-zip or Winrar
OPTIONAL: APKtool if you want to fix MMS
Open Base Rom,
If CM7: Delete Apps, Framework, and Media
if CM9: Delete Apps, Framework, and go INTO the media folder, delete everything but the EMD files.
IF CM7:Copy Apps, Framework, and Media from Port, to Base
IF CM9:Copy Apps, Framework, And audio folder.
MIUI: Copy Everything in the media folder except EMD files
Go into bin of both roms, Copy EVERYTHING from Base, to Port. Next, copy everything in Port to Base. This will fill in missing files.
Go into etc/Init.d/ in both roms. Copy EVERYTHING from Base, to Port. Next, Copy everything in Port to Base.
Go into etc/Permissions in both roms. Copy EVERYTHING from Base to Port, then Port to Base
Go into etc of both roms. Copy other files(NOT FOLDERS) from Base to Port, then Port to base.
Go to Lib of both roms. Copy all Lib files from Base to Port, then Port to Base.
IF it's a special rom, you need some other files. (Search XDA if you get problems)
Go into Xbin of both roms. Copy all from Base, to port. Then Port to Base.
After those are done, you should be able to flash the BASE rom with no problem, and enjoy the ported rom.
Post #2 will be Hotfixes(MMS, How to include Tweaks properly, etc)
I'll add screenshots when I get a chance.

Re: [GUIDE] How I ported roms?
Typically. When porting you stick with the same screen size and CPU instruction set. If you have an hdpi armv7 device, port from hdpi armv7 devices. If you have a tegra tablet, porting from other tegra tablets is easiest. If you have a crappy mdpi phone with an obsolete armv6 CPU, you know what to do.my roms & kernels (based on iho)

Re: [GUIDE] How I ported roms?
I have op V and op slider. And I have been waiting for some fun with slider. And... just waiting ; kind of interesting to see the huge difference between op V and op slider, where the slider is supposed to be the big brother, but not much custom ROMs.
