PREREQUISITES :
adb- This will help you out in deadly conditions
winRAR - For opening zip files

ROMS YOU WILL NEED :
Base ROM : CM7/MiUi/old Lewa(didn't tried on stock rom) For Your Device
LewaOS ROM : Get it from official site.




STEPS TO PORT :
  1. Open both ROMs using winRAR in two windows..No Need To Extract
  2. Go to '/system' and delete '/system/app', '/system/framework' and '/system/media' folder from Base ROM (CM7)
  3. Copy '/system/app' , '/system/framework' and '/system/media' folder from LewaOS to Base ROM.
    Copying can be done by simply drag and drop between the winRAR windows
  4.  Go To '/system/bin' of Base ROM
    --Copy all files present in '/system/bin' to LewaROM.
    --Now from LewaROM copy all files from '/system/bin' folder to '/system/bin' of Base ROM
    --This replaces all existing files of same name and adds missing files
  5.  Go To '/system/etc' of Base ROM
    --Copy all files (except the folders) from '/system/etc' of BaseROM to '/system/etc' of LewaROM
    --Now from LewaROM copy all files from '/system/etc' folder to '/system/etc' of Base ROM
    --This also replaces all existing files of same name and adds missing files
  6.  Go To '/system/etc/init.d' of Base ROM
    --Copy all files '/system/etc/init.d' of LewaROM to '/system/etc/init.s' of BaseROM
  7.  Go To '/system/etc/permissions' of Base ROM
    --Copy all files from '/system/etc/permissions' of BaseROM to '/system/etc/permissions' of LewaROM
    --Now from LewaROM copy all files from '/system/etc/permissions' folder to '/system/etc/permissions' of Base ROM
  8.  Go To '/system/lib' of Base ROM
    --Copy all '*.so' from '/system/lib' of BaseROM to '/system/lib' of LewaROM
    --Now from LewaROM copy all files from '/system/lib' folder to '/system/lib' of Base ROM
  9.  Go To /system/xbin of Base ROM
    --Copy all files present in '/system/xbin' folder to '/system/xbin' of LewaROM.
    --Now from LewaROM copy all files from '/system/xbin' folder to '/system/xbin' of Base ROM
  10. Open 'build.prop' from both ROM using Notepad++
     Add these lines below 'ro.cm.device=YOUR_DEVICE_NAME'
    ro.lewa.version=YOUR_ROM_NAME
    ro.lewa.device=YOUR_DEVICE_NAME
    Add these lines in # ADDITIONAL_BUILD_PROPERTIES below 'ro.com.android.dataroaming='
    ro.compcache.default=0
    ro.lewa.swapper.part_path=/dev/block/mmcblk1p3
    ro.lewa.swapper.flash_swappiness=99
    ro.lewa.swapper.sd_swappiness=60
    ro.error.receiver.system.apps=com.lewa.fc
    ro.error.receiver.default=com.lewa.fc
    persist.sys.notif-speaker=1
    persist.sys.ring-speaker=1
    persist.sys.alarm-speaker=1
    Remove the following lines
    ro.config.ringtone=Playa.ogg
    ro.config.notification_sound=regulus.ogg
    ro.config.alarm_alert=Alarm_Beep_03.ogg
    persist.sys.themeId=Cyanbread
    persist.sys.themePackageName=com.tmobile.theme.Cyanbread
Now Your Device has LewaOS

    1. Find what the drive is called You'll need to know what the drive is called to mount it. To do that fire off: sudo fdisk -l You're looking for a partition that should look something like:   /dev/sdb1 . Remember what it's called. 2.

Karabiner: Mouse/keyboard customizer for OS X

For beginners, or the one who migrated from Windows environment, Natural Gestures (Scrolling and Swiping) might be bit confusing. But, once you get familiarized with them, it may feel like "What was I doing, all those days?". It all changed, when I connected external mouse to my Macbook. When you start using that WHEEL, you will be confused. Luckily there is a setting for mouse, to change scroll behavior (natural or the other way). But, here's the catch. If you toggle that setting, it also toggles the same for TRACKPAD!!!!! I've seen that many people were freaked out and even raised BUG report to Apple. But, all those reports were closed, saying that is not a bug, but intentional feature!!! For those, who can't leave with such one-sided settings, here is a simple util, which came to my rescue: Karabiner It's simple, powerful and stable mouse/keyboard customizer for OSX. Without going into much detail, here's the configuration I used to ret

Java: Use BigInteger in for-loop

In my previous post , I mentioned a way to handle large integers by using BigInteger. Now I'm going to provide a very important usage of it. We often use for-loop. So here is the way to use it: Ordinary integers: for(int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {  //Task to do } BigInteger: for (BigInteger bi = BigInteger.valueOf(1);                 bi.compareTo(n) <= 0;                 bi = bi.add(BigInteger.ONE)) { //Task to do } here n is a BigInteger variable.
