[KITCHEN][16.10.2011] nsourm Kitchen
This thread is meant for Kitchen discussion only! (e.g. problems with cooking, possible fixes and/or updates for the kitchen, etc.)
Pre-built stock nsourm’s ROMs ready for flashing (built using this kitchen)
This is the same kitchen i've used for my rom
The kitchen is prepared in 9 languages:
0C0A = Spanish rom
040C = French rom
0406 = Danish rom
0407 = German rom
0408 = Greek rom
0409 = WWE rom
0410 = Italian rom
0413 = Dutch rom
0419 = Russian rom
How to cook a ROM
Step 1: Extract the Kitchen
Extract nsourm kitchen in a folder of your choice eg c: folder.
Step 2: Starting up
Once you've extracted the file, you can start the kitchen by launching osKitchen.exe.
This is how it should look like: (see pic1)
Click on the button "Open Project" and select the inside the htc photon folder the type of ROM you want to use as a Base. You can choose between the five versions. (pic2)
Once you have loaded up your kitchen, you have the same setup i used for the release of my roms.
You could now just press "Start building rom" and build your first rom, however this kitchen is meant so users can create their personal ROMs (with only the stuff you need)
Note that i have already dissabled some packages but you can pass the message and build the rom.
Step 3: Customization
Once you've loaded a «stock ROM», u can customize it to your own needs. U can exclude packages, add new packages, or edit some of the app.reg files to tweak it even more.
To exclude a package, u simply need to unmark the package by pressing the box next to the package, and the packages will be disabled and not used while building the ROM.
The sys tab is for windows mobile build. Be careful with this tab, because there are some packages that can’t be disabled. I've already include sys packages 23152, 29013, 29017, 29020, 29022.The last one is new one so if you build a rom with that you are going to have a brand new rom.
The ext packages tab is the main tab and this can be modified easily.
Keep in mind however that some packages are required for some core functions of the ROM and/or sense. I did my best categorising the stuff in folders so it's easier to know which packages can be removed without affecting functionality.
There are 2 extra folders
1. Sourmelidis apps
2. Sourmelidis cht modifications and tweaks
Both folders include extra apps and modifications that can be excluded from rom without affecting anything
The advanced tweaks tab is for some tweaks for the whole rom, such as cfc compressed rom, pagepool. Splash screen etc
Step 4: Building and flashing
Once you're ready, just go ahead and press the "Start building" button, this will take a while (it depends on how fast is your pc, laptop).
Once done, you will get a file called "ruu_signed???.nbh" in the HTC photon output folder
This file is your ROM, it's built and now ready to be flash, with the known procedure using cottulas sspl
And of course the link to download.
I would like to thank:
1. Airxtreme for kitchen
3. And of course all of you who have provided me with feedback, bug and reports because you make the kitchen- rom better.
Unfortunately due to lack of time i can’t support it as i want to but you can find answers to the windows mobile development thread, or by posting in the kitchen’s thread so someone except me(if i can) will answer your question
As i mentioned before i don’t have much time so i can’t promise many things for future versions of the kitchen. I will try to do my best………..
You can use the kitchen to publish your rom in any site, but it will be nice if you mention somewhere my name……..But if you don’t want there is no problem.
At last i want to mention that i’m not a programmer (i would like to,but…) so you can make the kitchen even better.
