Chrome ROM WM6.5 Kitchen (Release thread and User-to-user Guide)
• Post 1 - General info (Preface)
• Post 2 - Download section
• Post 3 - Hints and tips
• Post 4 - User submitted guides
• Post 5 - Screenshots (slightly outdated, but still give you the general idea)

I wanted to leave a little something before I back out of XDA and WinMo for a while (Lets try not to discuss reasoning at this time). I have uploaded my kitchen, which I have been using for several months now for anyone who likes the Chrome ROM look and feel. I have made it as easy as possible to cook your own ROM without too much thought. There are several builds included as well as a ton of choices to include or exclude.
I am not going to be real technical about this stuff, and am relying on you (the users) to help each other with any minor problems. I have tried to put everything into the simplist terms without misinterpetting. I will be checking in now and again to help where I can, and possibly update some items.
The kitchen is based on (or derived from) Da_G's ErviusKitchen releases, so thanks to him for the original idea and his great thread which has taught me almost everything I needed to know. Also, how can I leave out the other great chefs here and the people on the sidelines whom without I would not have made it so far (TPC, NATF, AtomAng, NRG, Programatix, Shep, Noonski, special thanks to Hilaireg, and anyone I may have overlooked). If you get lost, I would suggest searching either that thread or the new build release thread found here. There is much info there that will help you in your quest to have the best ROM possible.

PREREQUISITES: (Before you begin)

• The kitchen will need approximately 1GB of free storage space after extraction. Best to keep it on the root of your drive to avoid errors, or at least make sure there are no spaces in the title of the containing folders. This can cause some errors with certain executables.

• There is a readme file attatched as well as included in the kitchen for the extraction process and cooking process. The following is a slightly modified excerpt from that README (which you should look at before beginning):
Code:
In order to save yourself from unwanted problems it is best to exclude your kitchen folder from any virus detection software.
It is also recommended that you change folder settings so you can view hidden, system, and all other types of files.
It has been a while since I had to make these changes, so I do not remember exactly how it is done, but here is an example thanks to Endosurf. 
Tools--> Folder options. Click on the View Tab. Select Show hidden files and folders. Unselect Hide Extension. Unselect hide operating system files. Then click ok . 
You may also need to turn UAC (User Account Control) off in the control panel. Start --> Run type in msconfig. I think it’s the tools tab has a thing to disable UAC.
All kitchen executables should be run as administrator to avoid errors. Turning off UAC should help to avoid these issues.
• If you have an issue, I suggest first cooking one of the preset ROMs and going from there. It is most likely something that you have added or excluded that is causing you trouble.

• Although I would never charge for my services, a small graditude for my months and months of labor would not hurt

Sorry, is this along the same lines as what you had started to talk about in the ROM thread? Can I have a bit more info, actually I'll put this here so others will know what I need to check things out on my end (a checklist sort of):

• Path to kitchen
• You did exclude from virus software before extracting?
• Which Build?
• Which Preset? Any changes to selected packages?
• ROM boots? Initial configuration Runs? Other issues? Be specific.
• Error in kitchen? Try to write it down.

Thanks for helping to get everything straight so I will feel more confident in having this in the public If there are issues then I would not want many ppl downloading it before I get them resolved.

• Path to kitchen : Root
• You did exclude from virus software before extracting? Yes
• Which Build? 23518 2.5
• Which Preset? Any changes to selected packages? 23518 2.5 Full a few minor things removed like zip and add rar programs but nothing changed to sense 2.5
• ROM boots? Initial configuration Runs? Other issues? Be specific.
Rom boots fine, seems to work great, can't get past 2nd page of windows live when setting up. then after I'm up and running for awhile I get that problem w/all contacts tab freezing manila and when I open a text it reboots manila
• Error in kitchen? Try to write it down. Just says "Error building rom" at the very end

EDIT: REDOWNLOADED THE NON MEDIASHARE FILES, RECOOKED AND WINDOWS LIVE ISSUE IS GONE ALONG WITH CRC ERROR IN THE EXT FILE. SO FAR I HAVEN'T MANAGED TO MESS UP THE ALL CONTACTS FREEZING OR TXT MSG OPENING CAUSING THE REBOOT OF MANILA. WILL REPORT BACK MORE IF I FIND ANYTHING. ALSO STILL GET THE GENERIC ERROR AFTER COOKING...FROM WHAT I REMEMBER , I USED TO GET SOMETHING SIMILAR WHEN I USED TO COOK. BUT MINE WAS CAUSED BY THE THUMBNAIL FILES WHEN VIEWING THE FOLDERS IN MY KITCHEN.. I'LL CHECK THAT ALSO..

Thanks for your help

Without trying to sound like an arsehole...

You really should post your question on the thread, rather then speaking to JMC in a PM..

Why?

Because what you may consider a n00b question may help others down the track as well And it isnt fair to burden JMC with supporting everything to do with the ROM. Some of us might have the answer. Some may have a different approach to things that may improve on everyones knowledge and benefits us all

I really wish this kitchen was never released... Now I'm going to be tempted to develop a ROM.. And I've really been avoiding this... That's all I need, another time wasting IT thing

Better get my propeller hat and coke bottle glasses out of storage
