Changelog - OS Builder V1.3.187 FULL (03.11.2011)
. Fixed issue with deleting a parameter defined in boot.rgu, if the removing directive was stored in other packages - the post http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=564
The second step to full WP7 support
. Relocation engine is totally redesigned. (Hats off to Ultrashot
for valuable help with WP7 modules Z .reloc sections)
. Added possibility of porting/rebuilding XIP (NK) and the assembling IMGFS partition file for Windows Phone 7 with real registry recompiling and relocations according to WP7memory model (tested on HTC HD2, HTC HD7 and HTC Mozart. Credit for tests goes to Feropont
I want to warn that the registry files have to be checked by registry preview, because there is a hell of syntax errors in the original registry. Frankly, it seems (IMHO) that first the registry was generated and then some comments for dumb and mistakes were added.
Registry Preview will define incorrect lines to help you to fix that. The most common errors are:
- Parameter name without the quotes
- The comments are not marked with a semicolon or marked with colon.
- HEX type values end with point (the last or the only parameter line)
- The value MULTI_SZ contains comments between the lines parameter
- Existence of Directives for conditional compilation IF ... END (it's not a mistake, but currently these directives are not processed, so you should label them as a comment)
. The dsm-editor has now the feature to set/clear Z-flags for modules.
This flag is used for WP7 XIP modules only if the RW section of a module must be located within the boundaries of RAMStart-RAMFree (nk.exe, kernel.dll, kitl_noplat.dll and similar)
. For WP7 - Added ability to edit the file MsDefaultcerts.dat (see Additional Tools)
. For WP7- Added ability to edit files CoreOS.dat and initobj.dat (see Additional Tools)
. Added ability to automatically insert a certificate which will sign files while assembling DefaultCerts.dat and MsDefaultCerts.dat (for WP7) - see the settings in Build Dump and ROM. The original files stay untouched.
. XIP Port settings - added the list of additional MS packages (for WP7). When porting WP7 XIP, the packages specified in this list will be replaced with donor packages.
At the moment, we can safely add the following packages to this list:
. In Configuration and packages tab of Setting - added the option "Always include 0409packages." If your WP7kitchen allows the language selection, it is recommended to use this option enabled to include English-language packages by default to your ROM, otherwise there is risk to get non-bootable ROM.
. Added - the ability to build NB files (! For the moment only D000FF container !, NB assembling for the new _wmstore structure devices is not supported yet) and NBH files for WP7
To build NB you should have the original NB and should define the way to it in Build ROM settings, for example ".\NB\OS.nb". Unfortunately, to get rid of the original NB is not yet possible, but the work is in process. Hats off to AnDim
for help and information provided. NBH build configuration settings are similar to the previous version, except that the CID tab can contain multiple values (each value in a separate line)
If you plan to use for cooking WP7 dump obtained by earlier versions of OSBuilder, I would strongly recommend you to dump again, and to copy the new ROM template \ ROM.tpl to your kitchen. The new template will contain additional service information, which was not recorded in earlier versions of OSBuilder
. OSBuilder is fully backward compatible with WM6.x kitchens, (it was a big deal btw, but it was implemented). When you open the kitchen OSBuilder automatically detects the required mode WM6/WP7.
This compatibility will remain for the future, but no new features for WM kitchens will be added. OSBuilder WM Kitchens Development is terminated due to the termination of WM6.5.x development from MS side.
Thanks again to the team (AndrewSh
) - for the support, for the tests, for your work!
Special thanks to HD2Owner
