i am wanting to experiment with making a ROM for my WFS. i have ROM kitchen, but it doesnt natively support these phones. i have seen a thread or 2 from people that have made a ROM with the kitchen, so i was wondering if the ones that have done it can point me in the right direction to making the mount file needed to make it work right. any help is greatly appreciated, and i plan on sharing my creation here if i get one stable and working.

*note-i tried to ask this question in one of the mentioned threads, but it wouldnt let me post in the dev forums. not a problem, but wanted to explain why i asked here.

I've used it. What carrier you with? And what software number you got fron that carrier [Found in menu settings about phone software info]? What version of kitchen did you install on what kind of platform? Ok I asked three questions, shoot me the answers back and feel free to ask three of your own.

Rom Kitchen
Since you've made it through the setup (I assume). For your stock Rom, (in recovery) run a nandroid, now clear all your data (factory reset) and run another nandroid (just something I like to do to ensure no data will be pulled... Probably not necessary but it gives you your revert to (with data) and your (clean) build nandroid. Now take your build nandroid and open it up with a file manager (ie es explorer). You will want to grab two files from this nandroid... boot.img & system.img (may have called it system.yaffs2.img but just grab it and rename it to system.img). Ok now you have your ingredients for your first build. Connect the phone to your computer (USB storage) pull the two files across to the folder in your home directory that says put Rom here. You are ready to start cooking. Start the kitchen and use those 2 files to build your working folder. You can also try out the various features dsixda has built in. For example lets say you make your Rom rooted, you add apps2sd support, and just for giggles you deodex too. Now any additional changes you want to make can be done in the working folder. So, for our figurative example lets say you wanted to delete flashlite and add a full flash player, download the apk (think there are links to flash player or new market in the app & theme forum), delete flaslite.apk from the system folder in your working directory and paste your full flash player.apk in... Ok you've done all the editing to your working folder that you want to do (lots that you can change, but you want to have a working build and you don't have to make any changes to working folder if you just want to go through the options and read what the kitchen can cook in automatically; as you gain knowledge, you will edit your working folder more and more by hand, but that time will come). Ok start back up your kitchen and make sure all the options you wish have been completed (option 10 I think). Then if it all looks good, cook it (option 99); Also make sure you convert the update script back to updater. Go to the output folder and there you will have your flashable Rom. And thus concludes the lesson for today ;)

thanks insink71 for your help. but I think what he mean is kitchen template in 'edify_defs' dir.
there is no template for marvel (I'm stuck too )
example:
Code:
edify_defs # cat vivo

# HTC Incredible S

change_mnt=yes

param1=ext3
param2=MMC

param1_sdcard=vfat
param2_sdcard=MTD

sys_mnt=\/dev\/block\/mmcblk0p25
cache_mnt=\/dev\/block\/mmcblk0p27
boot_mnt=\/dev\/block\/mmcblk0p22
data_mnt=\/dev\/block\/mmcblk0p26
sdcard_mnt=\/dev\/block\/mmcblk1p1

You are correct, but the tips are invaluable to me as a beginner. I have read somewhere that there isn't a new template to make for the marvel, but I don't know if its true. That was the reason for my asking lol. I appreciate the responses.

edify defs
I didn't make one [and cooked a couple stock roms], but thanks for bringing it to my attention. I'll look into it.
