Port Sense ROMs Between Sense Devices in Six Easy Steps!

Mmmm! Smell that? Sorry to get your hopes up; it’s not bacon. That’s actually the smell of DEVELOPMENT! Here on XDA-Developers, we love developers of all shapes, sizes, and skill levels. We also take kindly to those older, more established developers who help the new guys out by writing helpful guides.

Luckily that’s precisely what XDA Recognized Developer samuel2706 has accomplished. To all the budding ROM chefs out there looking to get started with porting a Sense UI ROM to another Sense device, this is a great resource that you must check out. In this guide, the developer has compiled an easy to follow guide that should get you started in no time. Following the guide, you will learn the appropriate mixture of host and target device files for a successful port.

This screenshot-laden guide is only six simple steps long, making even the most novice chefs feel right at home. However, realize that any messes you get yourself into are yours and yours alone. As a precautionary mesure, make sure to create a Nandroid backup before loading up your new creations.

As stated in the guide:

 Hello and welcome to my porting guide, it works 9/10, the 1/10 it doesn’t use mans best friend

ADB LOGCAT. It works wonders you know. PM me with any questions or helpful tips.

Disclaimer: I am not responsible for bricking or blowing you up or causing your balls to shrink or you to see ghosts or anything, i am not responsible, your an adult act like one. you choose to do this on your own values, please dont expect me to buy you a new device, you broke it. i am not saying these work 100% of the time so don’t blame me if it doesn’t.

Continue on to the guide thread to get started with easy ROM porting between Sense devices!

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
