Lightbulb [APP]ROM Customization Wizard (RELEASED)

Overview:
This started as a project for my ROM, for the HTC Diamond CDMA, but since many people like it I have decided to release it to all ROM creators.

The ROM Customization Wizard is an EXE file that runs on WM5.0 - WM6.5.x devices. It allows you to choose exactly what applications you want in your ROM on first boot, without the need of an Internet connection.
The wizard guides you through software categories, for example Media, Games, Internet, Themes, etc. It allows you to choose to install all applications individually or skip an entire group. The app can also run an EXE when it is complete, customized by the ROM developer (If you don't know how to write applications, I can write one for you to display a message).
After that, it will soft reset your device.
To add to this, there is a small review of each aplication before installing.

In summary, it lets you install the necessary software for your ROM without downloading anything, and allows you to customize it to your liking.

Requirements:
The requirements are minimal. Any screen size, a touch screen and a WM5.0+ device.

Cooking:
This can be cooked into a ROM to run at first boot. More on this and a tutorial coming soon.

Included Software:
The included software will be completely freeware/open source. If you would like your software included, post a link to a CAB file and I will add it.
So far, here are the applications that are included:
Internet:
-Opera Mobile 10
-Opera Mini 5
-Skyfire
-UZard Browser
-Dorothy Browser

Media:
-SciLors GrooveMobile
-MyPlayer

Games:
-XTract
-Experiment 13

LOTS more to come...

XDA is about developing and is for developers. Any user that recognizes that will gain the most benefit from this site


 
This is and always will be a site for developers, pure and simple. Without them we are nothing, without them there would be no reason for XDA Developers to exist; we should never ever forget that. Without them this place would not be called XDA-Developers but something else, e.g Mobile Phone User Support Services For Ungrateful Nerds.

Previous devices: HTC: Treo 650 - Excalibur - Diamond - Diamond 2 - Maple - HD2 - Rhodium - Desire Z - Desire HD - Vivid - Sensation - One V - One X - Titan II - One X+ - DNA - Butterfly
