To Unpack boot.img


1. Right Click on Cygwin and run as an administrator

2. Type cd kitchen
3. Type ./menu



4. Once Android Kitchen opens type "0" without ""



5. Now type 12





6. Now type "w" without "" (note : you first need to set up a working folder, steps to create working folder at the end of post)



7. It will extract the stock boot.img in the folder where you setup Cygwin and Android Kitchen



8. Now type "a" without ""




9. A folder with the name bootimg_xxxxx_xxxx will be create copy and paste the Port boot.img in the folder



10. Press enter after placing the Port boot.img in the new bootimg_xxx_xxx folder



11. Now after the Port boot.img ha been unpacked open the kitchen folder



12. Now open BOOT-EXTRACTED and bootimg_xxxx_xxxx in two different windows



13. Open boot.img-ramdisk in both the Port and Stock folders and copy everything that is inside Port boot.img-ramdisk folder except for init.rc



14. Now delete all the folders in Stock boot.img-ramdisk




15. Now paste and replace all the files from Port boot.img-ramdisk folder in Stock boot.img-ramdisk folder



16. Now right click on the Stock and Port init.rc and select edit with notepad++



17. Now go to the export BOOTCLASSPATH line of Port init.rc and copy the entire line and replace it with the Stock export BOOTCLASSPATH (make sure they are in the correct category see image to understand)



18. Now save the Stock init.rc file and close notepad++


19. Now open cygwin and type "b" to repack the ported boot.img



 20. After the boot.img is successfully repacked you can find the ported boot.img in the Working_xxxx folder




DONE!!!

All CREDITS GO TO ME

Now to create Working Folder

1. In Cygwin type 1 and put your stock rom.zip file in original_update if you do not have it you can use the boot.img and settings.img 



2. You can get system.img and boot.img from this guide BackUp Using MTK Droid TOOLS follow step 1 to 8 on the guide


4. Now Follow the steps on Android Kitchen to create working folder

  1. I tried to port Lollipop kernel (not all rom, just kernel for set cpu and gpu easily) to Stock Rom of Elephone
    P5000, when i finished, i put boot.img in stock rom and flash it with sp flash tool but remains stuck on black screen..
    (the stock rom is not .zip i can't install from recovery)
    Help please

    1. LOL, are you crazy trying to flash a wrong kernel not meant for your device that also of Lollipop ?
      what android version are you in. ?\and what do you mean by this line "I tried to port Lollipop kernel (not all rom, just kernel for set cpu and gpu easily)"

      Delete
  2. and from which device did you get the Lollipop boot.img provide me the link. i will examine it.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I mean lollipop kernel of your ROM (it is 4.4.2)
    http://mtk65roms.blogspot.it/2015/03/442-pure-lollipop-rom-for-mtk6592.html?m=

    real lollilop for mt6592 does not exist :( ..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. can you access recovery ? just take any custom ROM which has the same chipset as yours port it and flash it, easy
      and if you already have a SP Flash tool backup then flash the backup. (recommended) i have a guide on how to flash stock ROM using SP flash tool.

      FYI : 2-3 mt6592 devices already have got lollipop. and Micromax, Coolpad are soon going to release Lollipop for MT6592 in this year. it was going to be released sooner but there were some bugs and Coolpad is making it's own custom ROM based on Lollipop so it is taking time.

      Delete
  4. Maybe i will port S5 ROM but i think that it is hard to working finger print and NFC , it that true? (S5 ROM kernel is the same of lollipop rom 4.4.2?)
    Kernel for me is important because with stock kernel I can't modify frequences/mV of my MTK

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. LOL. ofcourse the fingerprint will not work -.- without a fingerprint sensor in your device.

      you can modify frequencies in MT6592 just google for a CPU control app i prefer No frills CPU control get it from google play. it allows to change Min and Max frequencies but does not overclock or underclock the device it just changes the stock frequencies
      eg. if your device is 1.7Ghz it will allow you to set you Min frequency to 1.7GHz and change governers

      Delete
  5. and for a matter of fact the S5 and the Lollipop ROM do not use any custom kernel LOL

    ReplyDelete
  6. It is impossible underclock CPU and GPU? The phone goes in overheat easily and drains so much battery

    My device has a fingerprint sensor and i asked to you if I can port it (NFC too)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. you can underclock the Max CPU speed. yes i know MT6592 gets hot fast so i use no frillis cpu control to underclock the Max frequency, but you cannot undersclock the Min frequecy you get the idea right ? just install no frills xpu control from play store you will get the idea

      Delete
  7. For GPU there is no solution? And for fingerprint sensor? Thank you

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. why do you want to uder/overclock the GPU ?

      yes pay $800-$950 buy a Samsung S5 or S6 whola you get the fingerprint sensor.

      are you crazy bro ? how are you supposed to get a fingerprint sensor for your device -.-

      Delete
  8. O.o are you serious??
    I already said before that my device (elephone p5000) have a fingerprint sensor and i would port it to S5 ROM/Lollipop442 it is possibile?
    I want undervolt etc for increase battery life

    ReplyDelete
  9. FYI : you never said your device has fingerprint sensor, and i do not have any interest to check the specs of the device you mentioned just to see if it has any fingerprint sensor.
    Just undervolt the Max CPU Freq. and the battery backup will become good

    ReplyDelete
  10. "My device has a fingerprint sensor and i asked to you if I can port it"

    Maybe you did not read it..and i did not say anything about to check the specs of my p5000 ...
    Okay i will do it, but you did not answer to my questions, for custom kernel and finger porting there is no solution? Just that

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no you did not

      no there is no custom kernel. and i do not have any fingerprint device so i cannot build a fingerprint supported ROM

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. evein i currently dont know how to unpack Zimage, it is freaking hard, and even if you manage to decompile zimage and edit it you have to make sure the size remains exactly same as it was before decompiling for it to work and properly recompile. Eg the size of the zimage was 5.35 mb before decompiling and after you edit it and compile it the size must remain exactly 5.35 mb

  17. Hey I have a doubt.
    Here, it's given that we have to copy all files from ramdisk except init.rc
    But the mount points particular to my phone are listed in stock fstab
    If I replace it with fstab from port, how will it work?

    And.., in my stock ramdisk, I have files like init.sprout.rc init.sprout.usb.rc which are specific to my device.
    Do I have to leave those files as it is or delete them??

    Thanks

  19. Hey ajit, as you know many mmx and some other devices having 6589 chipsets got kk and lolipop upgrade unofficially thanks to their original manufacturers disclosed their full source. now as u find out the way to port kernel so is there any options or chances that those devices whose chipsets are same as 6589 but dont have source can get those upgrades by some how porting kernel or recoveries? waiting for ur reply

    1. you need source code, but it is possible without source code to upgrade 70:30 ratio where 30 is the chance of success.

    1. if it is a custom kernel you cannot port it because a custom kernel is made for only a certain device and wont work on others.

      and if you ported a kernel form a ROM then you must also port and flash the ROM with the ported kernel

      Delete
  24. I have a custom kernel made for micromax canvas2 MT6577. The developer of that ROM has said that any mt6577 device with same specs can flash it so I m trying to port it. But i m not able to port it since its init.rc doesn't contain this line ro.build.type=userdebug. Its an fully featured kernel. Help me to port it to mt6572.

  25. hi... I found a rom I really liked.. its MIUI v6.. and I found a version that has been ported to mt6572 chipset.. which is the chipset of my mtk device.. but sadly this rom is 4.4 based.. and my phone is 4.2.2.. I was wondering if this kernel porting tutorial will enable me use this ROM (MIUIv6 4.4) On my 4.2.2 based machine?? or is there any possibility of me ever being able to use this rom on my device?

    Awaiting you reply. Thanks.

  26. I have a MyPhone Cube (4Gb version) device that runs on MT6582 with 1Gb RAM and the latest official Android release for it is 4.4.2, I am wondering if it is possible to port Android L to it? I didn't find anything helpful about it on either XDA or forum.android.com.pl ... There is a device with almost same specs, Dogee Titans2 DG700 uses the same chipset and also 1Gb RAM, even the same resolution. the only difference is that it's 8Gb but I think partitions aren't such a big problem? Anyway - is it even worth trying? I mean, if it is do-able then I don't see a reason to not try it!

    1. partitions is a big deal. but yes there is a 20-30% chance of success with bugs of course. But the process is very different

  33. Hey Ajit,
    Few queries for few,but before that the history :/.
    I have a HTC 816G MKT 6582 chipset, MALI 400MP graphics card, with ANDROID 4.4.2 . Well accidentally I flashed the stock ROM but luckily the phones working. Bad news one, is I can't go into recovery ( I'm guessing the recovery module is corrupted). Bad news two, is I dont have a backup of the Stock ROM.
    Now Query 1, looking at your tutorials on Stock Rom using kitchen and other tools. I figured it's important to ask you where can I find the stock ROM for HTC 816G.
    Query 2, if everything thing goes well with the recovery and stuff, can I install CM 12 on this phone ?
    Regards

      Delete
    5. i will upload a audio patch soon wait for it.
      the camera specs will not be the same, this ROM is not built for your device and will not have the same specs as your device.

      eg : if your device has 20 MP but the ROM you ported was built for 2MP, The ROM will utilize only 2 MP and not the 20MP

    6. Can you tell me which files to move from stock to port?

    7. i just checked and I have already added the sound files in the ROM.
      Don't know why you are having a issue.
      What exactly is the problem ? Do you get sound while playing youtube videos and stuff ? have you installed any audio drivers like dolby or viper4android, if so uninstall them

      Delete

      And plz tell me the camera fix

    9. have you set a ringtone ? go to settings and check it.
      No you cannot get your megapixels back, you either have to return back to your stock rom if you want your original megapixels or stick with the megapixles in this ROM. I already told you this before and also gave you an example

      Delete
    10. Yup did set ringtone but no difference and i m not using any scripts

    11. have you tried changing ringtones ? do not use custom ringtones

    12. Yup,did change but no use and also ussd codes aren't working and dialer force closes sometimes..plz help bro

      Delete
    13. dude all the bugs in the ROM are CM source bugs which cannot be fixed until Cyanogenmod does something about it, why are you not understanding ? If you hate bugs so much please do not use the ROM. A lot of hard work has gone to make this ROM at least try to appreciate it.


      Check your volume settings, there is no question of not hearing ringtone if the sound is working in other places

  65. Hello! I hope somebody can help me! I have a mtk8382 pcba. I need to change the configuration of the cameras resolution. From 0.3 and 2.0 mp, to 1.3 and 3.0 mp…. Is there a way to do so by software?… I guess so, but have no idea how to. Please help! Is urgent…

    1. it is hardware, how do you expect your device to use 10 MP when your device only has 5 MP hardware ?

      Delete
    2. Actually, we do not expect it to work like double. We bought 50 units for a bid, won it, just found out the specs are not like in the catalogue... nobody will use the cameras, but has to comply with catalogue we presented... no support on this one... that is why I asked about this... Do you think it might be doable?

      Delete
    3. no, it is hardware. Just by a new camera and lens and wire it to the device. That is the only thing doable

  71. Hi,

    firts thank you for your work,

    then I just want to ask you for help. Im trying to port CyanogenMod 12.1 beta 6 for all MT6582 davices runing kitkat 4.4.x into Arty A3. It runs kitkat 4.4.2 (3.4.67). I have stock ROM from gigabyte website. I did everything like you in tutorial. Everything working, but when i open port init.rc in notepad++ and look for BOOTCLASSPATH lines, there is nothing like that. I know where it should be, but it looks like these lines missing. Am I doing anything wrong or i just cant port this rom into my davice? Realy thanks for your answer.

    1. the boot.img you are using is corrupted

      Delete
  73. Could you clear my doubt? You have opened init.rc of both stock n port, then you have copied boot classpath from stock to port ryt. Then what is the use as you are replacing stock boot files from port and init.rc file of port will have no use...sorry if I failed to explain :D

    how do i upgrade it to kitkat?

    and in the tutorial above, what is the portrom kernel? i mean from where should we get that kernel?
    thanks please reply

    1. your attempt to upgrade your android version is futile, you cannot port a higher kernel version without building it form source

  80. hey dev, i've tried this tutorial and actually i get stucked on tutorial no 6-7 because in my laptop just have 2 choices on it, "a" and "x" choices only and i think its because my jdk is version v6 and not v8, i tried to download the v8 and its not showing the web page, so i think to try with v6, is it giving the number of choices effect? thanks man
