How to Cook ROMs using Spocky's kitchen
HOW TO COOK ROMS USING SPOCKY'S KITCHEN
1. Download the kitchen and unzip it.
2. Download the eXpo or IQ base rom and place it in the folder BaseRom\GW820 (the file will have a dz extention)
3. Launch Start.bat and enter 7 and press enter. This will allow the kitchen to know you are building a rom for the for the eXpo/IQ.
4. Press a then enter. This will extract the files you need to build a rom from the .dz file.
5. Press b then enter. This will extract the files from the flash.bin file. It will also create a xip.bin file in
TOOLS\XIPPORT. If you are not porting a new build don't worry about the xip.bin file. If you are porting
a new build we will get to that soon.
6. Press c then enter. This will extract the sys files and the oem files into the temp\dump folder.
7. Now you are going to arrange your files that are in temp\dump into two separate folders OEM\GW820
and SYS\YourBuildVersion (eg. SYS\23563). Here is what you will put in each folder:
*Note: If you are porting a new build (such as a 6.5.5 build) you will be downloading the files that
match your build and will not find them in the temp\dump folder.
a. You will see a folder named OEM. Take the contents of that folder and put it into OEM\GW820.
b. Now you will create 3 folders within SYS\YourBuildNumber. DPI_192, dpi_192_resh_480_resv_800,
c. Now within each of those folders you will create two folders; 0409 and COMMON.
d. Now go back to temp\dump (I recommend having two windows open. One for temp\dump and the
the other for SYS\YourBuildNumber.) Go into the temp\dump\SYS\0409 folder. Now copy every folder
ending in Lang_0409_DPI_192 into your DPI_192\0409 folder.
e. Next copy all files ending in DPI_192 from temp\dump\SYS\COMMON folder to your
f. After that copy Base_Lang_0409_DPI_192_RESH_480_RESV_800 and
Themes_Lang_0409_DPI_192_RESH_480_RESV_800 from temp\dump\0409 folder to
g. Next copy base_dpi_192_resh_480_resv_800, MediaOS_dpi_192_resh_480_resv_800,
MediaOS_dpi_192_resh_480_resv_800, and Redist_dpi_192_resh_480_resv_800 from
temp\dump\SYS\COMMON to dpi_192_resh_480_resv_800\COMMON.
h. After that copy all files ending in Lang_0409 from temp\dump\SYS\0409 to SHARED\0409.
i. Finally copy all the rest of the files from temp\dump\SYS\COMMON to SHARED\COMMON.
*Note: If you are porting a build then do all of step 8. If you are rebuilding the stock rom do steps 8,
8d, 8e, 8m, 8n, and 8o. For some reason the kitchen won't build the rom properly if you don't.
8. Go back to the windows launched by start.bat. Press 9 and enter. This will bring up the options you will
use to port.
a. You will need a xip.bin that matches your build. It should come with the build files you downloaded.
b. Go to tools\xipport and rename the xip.bin that is in the folder. (eg. xip.GW820.bin) You will need this
c. Copy the xip.bin file you downloaded to tools\xipport. (Make sure it is named xip.bin)
d. On the start.bat windows press j and enter to launch xipport.
e. Click dump xip.bin
f. Click "make pkgs".
g. Now, you've got a "out" folder with files and modules separated in different subfolders.
Rename the out folder into something else. (eg. OUT.235xx).
h. Delete the downloaded xip.bin (or rename it if you want to save it) and rename the original
xip.bin back to xip.bin.
i. Repeat steps 8d-8f.
j. Now, you've got a out folder with files and modules separated in different subfolders from eXpo/IQ
k. Now replace modules\msxipkernel and files\msxipkernel with the ones from the newer xip.
l. Click "undo" to flatten out folder again.
m. Bring up the start.bat windows agin. Press k and enter. When a message tells you so, click "realloc
p", "write maps", "build xip_out.bin (ignore error messages in reallocp part). And finally, hit a key on
the dos prompt to finish this step (DO NOT HIT A KEY BEFORE BUILDING XIP WITH XIPPORT ELSE IT
n. Bring up the start.bat windows and press "l" and enter to use the new xip in the kitchen
o. In the start.bat window press 9 and enter to go back to the normal options. (Now you have
everything you need to port. Proceed to step 9)
9. Bring up the start.bat windows and press d and enter. This will dump your xip.bin file.
10. Go to the ROM\GW820 folder. You will see a XIP folder. Go into that folder and then go into the
WinCENLS_WWE folder and copy the wince.nls file. Now go into the OEMXIPKERNEL and paste wince.nls in
there. After that copy the OEMXIPKERNEL folder. Next create a folder in ROM\GW820 and name it your
build # (eg. 23563). Now paste OEMXIPKERNEL into that folder. After that copy MSXIPKernel from
ROM\GW820\XIP. Go to ROM\SHARED and create a folder and name it your build # (eg. 23563). Paste
MSXIPKernel into that folder. It is important both folders are named the same.
*Note for those that are porting:
If you are porting a new build you need to go to TOOLS\XIPPORT\OUT.235xx\FILE\MSXIPKernel
and copy 723fb954-d931-4348-b672-82a188e587b5.dsm
After that paste the file in ROM\SHARED\YourBuildNumber\MSXIPKernel. This will allow the correct build
number to show in the about screen on your device
11. Bring up the start.bat window again. Press e and enter to launch the ervius visual platformrebuilder.
(Note: If building with vista or windows 7 you will need to right click on erviuskitchen, select
properties,choose the compatibility tab, check Run this program as an administrator, and click ok).
Once it is launched you will need to set a few options on the top bar of the kitchen. First select
GW820 as your device. Then select your rom res. Choose dpi_192_resh_480_resv_800. After that
select your XIP and SYS Builds. Finally you can select to leave out certain SYS files from your rom, but
do be warned that leaving out some SYS files can result in a rom that won't boot. Once you have
made all your selections click create rom. The kitchen will now build your rom. When it is done it will
launch a flashing program just exit it and the visual kitchen. Go back to the start.bat prompt.
12. Press f and enter. This will build the new imgfs.bin.
13. Press g and enter. This will build the new flash.bin.
There is an additional step for IQ owners. Download this ADD-ON FILE
and place it in Baserom\GW820. Without it
you won't be able to repack the rom into a dz file.
14. Press h and enter. Then enter a name for your new rom (no spaces) and press enter. It will then create
a new dz file for you. You can find it in BuiltRom\GW820. It will be called rom.dz. This is the file you will
use to flash your phone.
Your rom is now built. Good luck and I can't wait to see what you guys cook up.
Here is the link to Spocky's Kitchen:
Spocky's LG Multidevice Kitchen 2.2
eXpo Add-on Package:
eXpo Add-on Part 1
expo Add-on Part 2
IQ Add-on Package:
IQ Add-on Part 1
IQ Add-on Part 2
Note 1: To use an add-on download all parts to the same folder and extract Part 1. Part 2 will extract automatically. Once they are extracted move the folders to your kitchen, overriding the existing folders.
Note 2: IQ users - If you are using the add-on package; remove fwua.mbn from Baserom\GW820 and place it back in there when after step 13.
Note 3: If you use the add-on only do steps 1-3, 5, 8, 8d, 8e, 8m, 8n, 8o, 9, and 11-14. If you are porting arrange your folders like in step 7 and also do all of step 8 and step 10.
Note 4: Step 9 needs to be done because there is a process in step 9 other than dumping the xip.bin that allows the ervius visual platformrebuilder to build a rom correctly.
