Default Android NBHCREATOR [v0.3] on Ubuntu. FROYO SUPPORT & ADVANCED SETTINGS [July-29-2010]

NBHCreator v 0.3

NBHCreator makes the nbh file for flashing android to nand.

This utility works for Vogue, Polaris and Kaiser.

Currently supporting Donut, Eclair and Froyo

Prerequisites:
1. you need to be running Ubuntu (other Debian distros may work, give it a try) NBHCreator v2.0 will be cross-platform
2. you need to have wine installed ( I am using v1.1.42)
Make sure to "Completely" uninstall previous versions before installing newer versions.


Directions as follows:

a. select the zImage you wish to make an nbh for... try one from here:Working Kaiser GPS!! or here:DZO
b. change parameters to your liking...
c. click on the "compile" button...
d. select output folder.

and Flash Away...

Please Search for how to flash if you don't know how.

that being said...
I welcome any and all criticisms of this program
and I would appreciate any advice, suggestions, questions or comments.

Version 0.3b
-Fixed Window issues.
-For now...do not save output to a FOLDER on the Desktop.
-DOES NOT WORK YET WITH 2.6.32 ZIMAGES


Version 0.3 (07-29-2010)
-Now Supporting Froyo
-New Advanced Settings for things like Clock speed and Memory.
-Added a Date Stamp option for output filename.
-Removed internal Error checking[/B]
-This version has window issues with the xfce desktop environment. fixed in 0.3b

Version 0.2b (07-01-2010)
-Fixed false errors when creating for Vogue and Polaris

Version 0.2 (06-15-2010)
- Added ability to select zImage with name extentions ie... "zImage-12-06-10"
- Output filename now refects device type ie... "VOGUIMG, POLAIMG and KAISIMG"
- Added some error checking to make sure nbh was built correctly
- misc internal code fixes.
-False Error messages are popping up for vogue and polaris. Resulting nbh should still be usable. Fixed in 0.2b.

Version 0.1 (06-09-2010)
- should work for Kaiser, Vogue and Polaris
- Device specific options
- Settings for hw3d (donut/eclair)
- Settings for Resolution 240x320, 320x428, 320x480
- Settings for Panel Type 1, 2, 3
- Settings for Battery Capacity
- Settings for ppp.nostart (Data)
- May not work with loser's editor (let me know...)
- more options to come
- NBHs are all being named KAISIMG.NBH will be fixed in v0.2

I have a "Donate" button...for those of you that feel compelled to do so.
However, I don't feel I deserve it. Nor will I guarantee any results in return from any such donations.
Although I do appreciate the gesture, a simple thanks will suffice.

Honestly? I think it rocks, since I'm to lazy to build my own NBH's

I see the similarities, and also the differences, and I think you should continue development personally, it's a different approach, and I can see the possibility to add to it by being able to include boot splashes perhaps, or edited initrd/zimage combinations for instance.

So yeah, keep at it

Yep, sounds like a great idea. A nbh editor is good for beginners, but it would be nice to be able to build your own. Could open up a lot of opportunities for customization.

Just make a Windows and a Mac port as well, for the future.

ok....so far progress is going along very well. I have this functioning on my setup
but I still have to work out making it transferable to other computers.

while I work on this, are there any additions that you would like to see added.
I will see if I can squeeze any changes into the beta release.

It would be fairly portable if written in Python with GTK or Tk.

I am using gambas2 in ubuntu.
I am still trying to port my visual basic knowledge to gambas. it doesn't all function the same.


I have minimal experience in Python. but if you know any good tips I am all open for suggestions.

I have to get around to install Ubuntu, and I don't have the hard disk space for it just yet. Been meaning to go buy a terabyte hard drive to dual boot.
