hey guys, i've got a real noobish question
i've tried to figure it out by myself, but i don't get it fixed:
i've extracted the latest htc rom, deleted some packages, added some packages, created rom, flashed it...till now no problems BUT:
on first boot the "automatic customization" appears and tries to install things, that i've thrown out of the rom => error massage => reset => rom without anything
i tried to find something about that in google, in this forum and in this thread...but found nothing...i'm sorry if this problem has already been reported and solved, but this thread is much to huge to read it page by page..
thanks for your help

Hi lauchi,

You shouldn't have that problem with this kitchen as it is posted.

Assuming you built a "net new" kitchen after extracting an official HTC ROM, I suspect you may not have removed some of the post-customization entries. Have a look at the following folders (packages):

ConfigAP
OperatorPkg
OperatorPkg_PT


They typically contain .TXT and .PROVXML configuration files that initiate post-customization actions.

In this kitchen, the files in these folders have been modified such that very little actions occur. You can find the original versions of the files in packages that begin with DEVICE_. The DEVICE_CUSTOMIZED_ package (as per my notes) is the package you should use to tailor some of the ROM settings.

HTH,

Reminder: Tools, Profiles, Docs
@all:

Here's a few tools that I use when building a new kitchen:

- emEditor (Edit & File Search)
- Hex Editor
- BeyondCompare (www.scootersoftware.com)


I've included "budget" version of some of these tools (along with many others) in the kitchen:

- Notepad2 & xp_persisthandler.vbs
- XVI32


I assume that all chefs downloading the kitchens in this thread take an hour or so to get acquainted with all of its components such as the TOOLS folder. At the very least, it's really important to go through the ReadMe, ChangeLog, and PackingList as I put a significant amount of time capturing any change that I make in those files.

Additionally, I try to make a point of adding a comment (XDADevelopers) for any change that I make to .PROVXML, .RGU/.REG, APP.DAT/INITFLASHFILES.TXT.

For DEVICE profiles, I know it's a pain but ... chefs should thoroughly examine the contents of the DEVICE_CUSTOMIZED profile as it should serve as your baseline for your own personal version of DEVICE_CUSTOMIZED. The files originally started from the HTC 5.05.405.1 stock ROM files and i've commented changes as I went along. The other DEVICE profiles serve as a container of sorts for the ROM stock files - they are meant for reference more than use.

Lastly, cooking is an art, the culinary experience is entirely in your hands. I've attempted to provide a recipe book assuming that you, the aspiring chefs, will change it to your liking.

Reminder: Manila, Dialer
@all:

Since the new Manila 2.1/2.5 ports are out, keep the following in mind. The G-Sensor 4 SDK package contains a Blacklist entry to prevent Manila and Phone Canvas rotation.

You may need to remove both of these entries and place them in the Whitelist for rotation to function. These changes may be done via the included the .RGU/.REG and/or .PROVXML (overrides .RGU/.REG).

I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but since I'm using this kitchen I had to ask here..

How can I exchange the HTC Black.tsk with a custom one?
And how can I install custom Taskbar icons?

Sorry if this is the wrong place too post this..

The HTC Black.tsk file is in the OperatorPkg; make sure to search in the *.txt, *.dat, *.ini, *.rgu, and *.*xml files for instances of HTC Black.tsk as well as you will likely need to change any references to HTC Black.tsk.

There should be an taskbar package in:

.\EXT\SHARED\System - Final Configuration\


Some icons are also handled inside resources, which means that you may need to look at some of the packages in:

.\EXT\Raphael\COMMON\System - Configuration Profile (Single Selection Only)\
.\EXT\Raphael\COMMON\System - Enhancement\



In order to keep the kitchen size below 200MB, I had to move some packages into the Application Packs (1-4) ... you may need to download those packs to obtain all of the enhancements you are looking for.

HTH,
