My 1st ROM-Need help

My goal is to remove all unused applications from the ROM. I use surface kitchen (couldnt find anything else). I put Rom files into the Base ROM folder in the kitchen and used option 1. All finished ok. However when i start !COOK.cmd I cant see any packages (i can see them in the OEM folder) to select. In the readme file I found this:

3. Open !COOK.cmd and Buildos will open.

-Check/Uncheck the packages you want to add in the rom(if there are no things to check, add the option.xml file to each of the oem packs)
However I couldnt find any option.xml file. I checjked Wicki but there is only Kiser kitchen. I would love to use it for Diamond but I'm not sure if I can. So I'm stuck for now. If anyone could help me it will be great.

Just tried it. It works ok. Just a quick question. How do I remove unwanted packages. Should I just remove them from the casserole folder?

lolek74,

What do you mean by "My goal is to remove all unused applications from the ROM". Is that unused by yourself or do you mean to create a stripped down ROM removing as many apps as possible.

The later is what a few of us have been looking for and it would be great if you could create a ROM like that.

lolek: r u Polish?
^.^

Anyways, after the "concat" part, you will have an OEM folder and a SYS folder in casserole.

Each package (nearly) is prefixed with package_diamond_xxx
Some of them have accompanying language/mui folders

You can delete any pair you don't like.


Be careful while removing SYS packages though, or OEM_prefixed packages.

This usually happens if you're trying to extract a "protected" ROM like bepe's, DP, Swift or Dutty's.
