It was an ICS rom if that helps.

anyone wondering how I fixed it?

use winrar but dont extract go in and delete update-script, and update-binary it will make you one that works.

recommend it anyways because it unclutters your scripts

Could anyone help me on root permissions?
I've selected the 2nd item from main menu to add root permissions but after flashing screenshot app can't run, it says: "Root required!".
Thank you!

I need some help with setting up the kitchen please. I had the HD2 version previously installed and working fine. But now I am on Sensation I uninstalled cygwin completely, redownloaded cygwin_packages and the 188 version of the kitchen and reinstalled everything. I have the SDK set up and working, Java 1.7.0_02, etc etc. I installed cygwin following the instructions exactly again (clicked arrows to set All > Install) then ran bash shell. On first run I got the java not installed error so I added the java path to bash_profile. Now bash shell runs fine. But when I get to ./menu to run the kitchen I get a short list of errors (chmod not found, rm not found, clear not found...). All the files are in C:\cygwin\bin. I read the FAQs again and again and the only instruction relating to this is to make sure you click All > Install during setup which I have done several times but still get the same error and the kitchen won't start. Can anyone assist me without flaming me please?

Thumbs up This guide takes the cake for simple, easy, and user friendly
I've been reading a lot of guides but this one really helped me out and get me started fast.
This is a prime example of how to set up ADB and SDK and start developing ROMs, This is exactly what I was looking for, simple, basic, and user friendly!
Keep up the great work!

@OT: Maybe you could try to recommend my tool as a NOOB- build-from-source?
