That was fast man, you did it! First of all, let me congratulate and thank you for your great work. It was really nice of you to take time out of your schedule and make the very much needed kitchen for gene. Thanks a lot! It really must have been some hard work. Atleast somebody took the initiative to do it.
Now coming my experience with it. I have a P3400i (New Gene) with Onbl 1.17.000 and SPL 1.07.Oref (patched).
I, for obivious resons selected the "New Gene" radio button while building the ROM. As my first experience with it, i tried to build the ROM with default settings, just added back the Transcriber packages to the OEM part.
At first, the process started and BuildOS built the files, but on the registry part it gave an error building the main registry hives. I looked at the log file in dump folder and it listed a .rgu (registry setting) file missing which, on checking , i found that is present in the XIP_OLD folder but not in XIP folder, so i copied the file from there to the XIP folder and tried again. Bingo! it worked, G'Reloc ran and then the htcrt tool merged the OS_new.nb and extrom.nb successfully.
For people who are experiencing the registry error, please look at the log file in dump folder which is automatically created during the build process and look at the last line where it is saying that xxxxxxx.rgu file is missing. Find that file in the folder where your kitchen is. It will be in some XIP_NEW folder, copy it to the adjacent XIP folder.
After that, when i flashed the ROM to my phone, it flashed completly fine to 100% and the RUU tool showed No Error. But after that, phone was hung on the HTC splash screen/boot screen. It is showing the Onbl, spl, radio and OS versions and after some time, the radio starts which is chracterised by the blinking of green LED. but it doesn't boots furthur. I checked for 20 mins.
I tried some combinations of packages as well but no avail. I think the problem is with the XIP as i have read many times on this forum, this problem happens whenever ppl flash invalid XIP partition to the device. And after radio initialization, i think the next thing that happens is the initialization of XIP area for loading the main parts of OS (i could be wrong, these are just my assumptions).
Also, if i select the Single Package option, the exe that does it gives and error and quits. But the build process continues even after that.
So, all in all the UI is great, its usable and pretty and we can talk about it later. First this issue needs to be ironed out.
What do say brother?
PS: I tried all these operations on Vista as well as XP Pro SP3.
