Edit: For v5.2.19202 or any other version, can I simply replace the original ROM with my intended version?

Many thanks for that!

One question... I would like to add my custom apps to the kitchen. I understand I have to place the files to C:\Torn\WORK\OEM\App_name, put registry entries to RGU file, and make appropriate initflashfiles.txt and option.xml files.
But how to choose names for DSM and RGU files? Does it only have to be uniqe?

You need to replace the system files too (SYS directory) with the newer ones. The original ROM is used only for the XIP (kernel). I've never had the free time to use this kitchen with the new OS, btw.

There is a utility from Microsoft for generating those names. But I simply use a random name and it works.

Thanks Nitro. I will play around with it. Probably I can get the system files using Molskis kitchen and move them over. Will keep you posted. Edit: too risky... dare not risk my old faithful
I did some cooking test. However, apps that were omitted were in the nk.nbf eg. Celetask and a few others. Is anything wrong or my doing is incorrect?

Thanks again.

Edit: Since NiTro isnt full time with us here, hopefully someone can followup on this and upgrade it for WM6.1. OR someone with the expertise can give a guide on which WM6.1 files to populate which folders in the kitchen remembering to keep NiTro's fantastic tweaks! That would be very helpful. (I use Molskis' kitchen to view contents of the nk.nbf, so that wont be too difficult, for me I think, to proceed.)
