Updated version can be found HERE included linux instructions and setting up adb/logcat This guide is from my own experiences and from various sources i've found from various sources including xda, miui forums and rootzwiki. So you found a rom that you want to port to the Optimus Elite but don't know where to start? This simple guide will hopefully give you a basis and guide you how to begin. This guide assumes you are using windows. Important things to be aware of: Find a rom from a phone that is as close as possible to the Elite The version number MUST MATCH, so if you are using phenom's cm10 which is android 4.1.2 the port rom MUST be the same version. Download the base and the port roms, open them both up using either 7zip or winrar (i use winrar myself). Do not extract them because it'll mess with the structure and permissions. With both of them open, inside the base rom delete the folders: and replace them with the folders in the port rom. Open up the build.prop in both base and port using notepadd ++ and at very least you want to change the following lines: with the values from port, other roms have other values, for example paranoid android has: so check to see if the rom you are porting has any specific values. MIUI and Paranoid also have specific values for the updater-script which i'll cover in another guide. Most roms don't need to edit the updater-script. After these are done, close the archives, rename the base zip, pop it on the elite and flash. Next post will cover what to do next.
