I'm no longer updating this! All of the new changes have been pushed to the atools version. L1q1d is going to be taking over from here on out so check out his thread HERE.


Here's an editor to select which settings you want for your nbh!
All this does is hex edit different things, including the cmdline info, like you could do with a hex editor. It's just a lot more user friendly.

Disclaimer:
I'm not responsible for ANYTHING that happens to you, your phone, or your computer. I would not release something that intentionally harms a computer or phone, but there's always that chance when using unofficial software.

__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ __________________________________

What everything means:
Device:
-Vogue: LINK
-Kaiser: LINK
-Polaris: LINK

Resolution:
-240x320: The native resolution on these devices. Will give the best overall picture quality.
-320x428: The smaller version of the 320x480 that fits our screens better.
-320x480: The native resolution for the G1 and most 1st gen Android devices. Things will fit better as they aren't scaled down, but everything will look blurry/squished.

Version:
-This is the Android version. Be careful not to get it mixed up with a user's release version. Most builds say either Donut, Eclair, or Froyo, but if not then you can install the system and look under Settings>About Phone and look under "Android Version"
-Donut: 1.6
-Eclair: 2.1
-Froyo: 2.2

Panel Type:
-Only Vogues have auto panel detection, so for Kaiser and Polaris users you will just have to pick one. If there's weird pixels, things don't look right, sleeping issues try a different panel.

Keyboard Types:
-Look HERE for more info if you don't know which keyboard type.

More Settings:
-ppp.nostart: If you set this to 1 it should prevent data from starting on boot. Helpful for some people but if you don't have to worry about data then leave it 0.
-CPU Overclock: This uses the same method that myn uses with Rogue Tools. Our CPU's are set to run at 400 MHz, but we can overclock them to over 500 MHz. I would suggest not going over 500 unless you know what you're doing, but some users have reported running at 550 just fine. It could decrease your device's life expectancy if using constantly, but probably won't notice for quite some time.
-System/Data Partitions: You can use this if running system or data off an EXT2 partition to use all of nand. Also helps when using an older Sense build that needed a larger system partition.
-Disable Vibrate on boot: Check THIS POST for more info on that.
-Battery Capacity: Self explanatory.

Last but not least... Thanks! I've said it all before but this wouldn't be possible without the mighty one, DZO. Thanks to DZO, kallt_kaffe, myn and l1q1d for pointers, and all the other devs that are helping get these what should have been extinct devices back to life!

To Do:
Taking suggestions!

Nice work man. This will really make things easier for alot of people.

I'm hoping so.

And it's just a lot to take in without any real experience. It's not too bad but I probably could've started somewhere a little easier.

LOL... I was just working on this yesterday...
although my version is for linux.

I will check to see if this runs in wine before I bother more development.

the only difference between yours and mine is that mine compiles a new nbh from zImage
and I included ppp.nostart and battery capacity settings as well.

Edit: I can't easily get it working in wine... I will try a few tricks and report back.

Nice. I plan to add more to it like ppp.nostart and battery capacity and clock settings. And eventually get it so dzo and others only need to make one nbh for all devices.

Let me know if it works in wine.

If it's written in c# try mono NameOfApp.exe instead of wine.
