Anyone familiar with porting roms? looking to try and port a u8180 2.2.2 rom to the u8150. I know it can be done because most of the 2.2.2 roms for this phone are based on the 8180 rom. The problem is they are all themed and changed too much for what I want to do. All I want is the ability to use agps properly on this phone. The 2.2.2 rom officially available for this phone doesn't include the agps ability so it is no better than 2.2.1 roms really.
Any help would be awesome.

Ah well, not so worried about this now that the X5 does everything I need my phone to do. If anyone is looking for a rom that has more app storage, runs for 2-3 days on moderate use and up to four on standby/light use, give my mod a try. It is also smooth and quick due to a custom kernel with over and underclock and a heavily tuned smartass v2 governer. Also has memory tweaks and ext3/4 baked in. Close to stock froyo, but also has custom sounds and fonts baked in to give it a different feel.

Oh dear now that you have an X5, I suspect your motivation to work on your Ideos U8150 rom may decline significantly!

You shouldnt need to do much "Porting" at all really, Just use your devices kernel (or boot.img) for a start and see if it boots, maybe take the modules folder also

Cheers, yep, it may decrease a bit now! Not much more I can do with it anyway unless I try to get involved in the GB porting for it and I am a long way off being useful there.
I copied my new kernel into a 2.2.2 rom from the 8180 and it booted fine, but wifi kept giving me an error when I tried to start it. I copied the system/wifi folder and still no dice. Might be a config script somewhere I am missing.
