1. Is it possible to port a Lollipop 5.1.1 rom from ‘Android One’ device’s update of Micromax Canvas A1 (mt6582/4.5″ screen/4gb internal) to Lenovo S930 which is 4.4.2 kitkat (mt6582/6″/8gb). Since they both have the same mtk chipset, can it be ported?

    • I have exactly the same question! I would like to port any 5.1.1 and found CM12.1 for Android One. But my Lenovo S930 is 4.4.2. Please could anyone answer our questions and try to help us?

      • Is chipset same of both devices? But I have heard that There is some other files in Android one which can not be ported to other MTK devices. Actually, Android One is exceptional for MTK devices. You can browse XDA forums for more info.

  2. i have may stock rom i want it to port but i cannot find meta inf which i already extract my stock rom…
    so can pleas explain it clearly guy i want you’re answer

  3. I have a MTK 8125 chipset. Could I use this method to port from another MTK chipset to mine? Will this work for porting marshmallow as well?

    Thank you


  4. Listen carefully, if you have MediaTek and your kernel is 3.4.5 you can’t port android KK, LP and M. Some custom roms may be installed succesfull but it wont boot. If someone’s wants to try, first take backup because next you must find a ROM which is made for your phone.
