Fire up "Vox Rose Kitchen.exe" in the normal kitchen folder ("C:\Vox Rose Kitchen") and go to the build tab. It'll look like this:
The first step is to start G'Reloc and check if the values are right for the Vox (look at the picture) and click on "Do it"!
If you are cooking with WM 6.5 you might get errors, because G'Reloc isn't ready for Wm 6.5. In this case you click OK and then "Do it!" again and it'll tell you which module is producing the error. You can now either go to that folder and use Unlocker to unlock the "tmp"-file and delete it and then click "Do it!" again to keep going or you use recmod to make a file out of the module (better if you are cooking more then once). I recommend the recmod path it's easier and faster once you've eliminated all "bad" modules!
The WM 6.5 package I supply has all modules already fixed, so you don't need to worry!
When G'Rleoc is done (it might look like it hangs and then unexpectedly is done), you can close it and continue on with BuildOS. Here you can choose what to include and what not to include (only OEM packages, if you don't want certain languages (all the xxx_LANG_0XXX folders) or SYS packages you'll have to delete them manually! Please do not remove the package I have marked in the picture, unless you are re-integrating customer service (but why would you ).
Click on the green play button once you have selected everything you want! It'll say done at the bottom once it's done!
When it's done you can close it and click on "Create Vox ROM".
This will automatically insert a xip into the new ROM if there is one present in the ROM folder (xip.bin). You don't need a new XIP for 6.1 and I integrated the right one in my WM 6.5 package. So basically you don't have to worry about XIPs.
The cmd window will do everything on it's own and it's done when the window closes itself. You now have a OS.nb in the temp folder.
Now open then "Start HTC ROM Tool" and click on "Build!":
Under "Device" choose Excalibur.
Change the "Version" to what ever you want and leave the rest alone.
Then select a OS and choose the OS.nb in the temp folder.
Then click on "Build" and save the ROM in TOOLS\VoxFLASH and you are done with cooking!
I´m completely new to Vox world, I´m coming from Excalibur, and I want to know if I´ll be able to backup my current rom with this tool. Also, I want to know if it´ll be possible to restore this backup if something goes wrong with a WM6.5 upgrade, for example.
I´m currently using WM6.0 Stock ROM. My vox never saw another rom in it´s life.
Also, is there a step-by-step guide to do this backup/restore procedure? I found some articles (using the search tool), but they seem to be incomplete or outdated. I´m really afraid of bricking my expensive device.
