That’s it, Now you can Add or Remove System App from System/app folder, but make sure that the name of Apps must be without spaces.

Now .zip the Port Folder and Flash it in your Phone with Recovery, before flashing Please Make sure that you have Backed Up up device because in case of bricking i may not be responsible for that.

    I downloaded 2 roms and they do not have those folders inside. Only .bin and .img files. I can’t extract those files either using 7-Zip. Help please!

    • Valentine Filyov

      That’s because you downloaded a ROM which is flashable through Flash Tool and not through recovery ! 🙂

  • Apek

    i stuck at bootloop .. it just restart again and again. .what should i do?

    • Valentine Filyov

      Just flash another ROM 🙂 If you can’t get to the recovery then flash a rom through Flash tool 🙂

    • Ben

      I also got stuck at boot/ or faced a restarting issue. But I fixed it by replacing the boot.img of port with stock boot.img
      .
