    I think that would be very hard to do and also not many people would want that ROM in comparison to what we have now.

    if that rom was portable to motion it would have to use a motion rom as a base and would only be as stable as the base rom.

    Sounds good to me...i'm sure the stock made rom would do..and if i had an inch of know how to do this myself i would be all over it..rom #2 was the #1 choice for esteem and L is updated it to the max to run at the best...i'm sure people here would give it a try and love it....

    Can someone give me the definition to porting? or what is the mechanics

    ok i see this might be to hard as this is a duel core phone and the esteem is single core
    well if anyone wants the challenge it's yours....thanks in advance.

    That's not what he's saying, the base would have the same issues at the CM10's we have now, only way to fix all of this is to build from source, which takes a LONG time and would come up with issues of it's own.
    The Dual Core had nothing to do with it.
    It's just that it would have the same issues that we already have.

    Also, downgrading from ICS/Jellybean(unofficial) is just something that most people wouldn't want.

    Downgrading from ICS/Jellybean look* my bad forgot to type that in.
    I don't honestly know why you'd want that, but if you're up for it, then you have all my encouragement and help if you may need some while you're porting :D

    Well it starts my first snag..plus i'm not porting rom #2 went with a rom made for ics..but when i'm moving build.prop coding to and from base and port build.prop says to...

    Open /system/build.prop
    Copy & Replace the following:
    ro.modversion
    ro.cm.version
    ro.config.ringtone
    ro.config.notification_sound
    ro.config.alarm_alert
    ro.config.sms_received_sound
    ro.config.sms_delivered_sound
    persist.sys.themeId
    persist.sys.themePackageName
    and anything similar to that, to: BASE's build.prop

    Then says to..

    Inside BASE:
    Open /system/build.prop
    Highlight from: ro.build.tags=
    to: # ADDITIONAL_BUILD_PROPERTIES
    Shown in this picture
    Copy & Replace that highlighted part to: PORTED's build.prop's highlighted part

    Copy everything from: # ADDITIONAL_BUILD_PROPERTIES
    To: the end of the file
    Paste it to PORTED's build.prop

    I do not understand where the to put the highlighted from where to where i'm stuck there and zephyr101 said would aid me and i'm going to hold you to this...

    Oh goodness :p
    Hit search in notepad c++ and then find ro.build.tags file on BASE and highlight from there ALL the way down to # ADDITIONAL_BUILD_PROPERTIES
    then on Ported hit search and find where it starts to say ro.build.tags and then highlight all the way down to # ADDITIONAL_BUILD_PROPERTIES
    and then hit paste.
