Following on from the great work Sleuth255 has been doing around UC ROMs, I have joined the party and created a tool which will ease with the creation of the SDConfig.txt files for UC ROMs.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=366337




There is a long way to go with this app and I would like the community to guide its development.

Comments and feedback welcomed

I added several files (about 7) to the tool (see attached), but my sdconfig file only shows 3 files to be executed... Looks like this:

LOCK:Enabled
CAB:\Storage Card\Apps\Cabs\PocketCM-0.20b.cab
CAB:\Storage Card\Apps\Cabs\LiveSearch.cab
EXCH:\Storage Card\Apps\Cabs\MyMobile10_70821.exe
LOCK: disabled
RST:Reset

Am I doing something wrong...?

nice...

Over all, very nice improvement over your last built. Awesome job and keep up the good work! Here is what I've noticed...

Bugs:

When loading a folder that contains cabs AND additional folders, no cab files are loaded into the left pane (see first attached image).

Also, when you change move up a cab, all of the cabs in between stay selected (see second attached image).

Moving a cab down does not seem to work at all... :confused: The selected cab and the cab below it seem to only trade positions.

These problems should be easy to fix if you're using VB.NET or C#

?:
In the CAB & Copy tab, the convert button for the " convert .reg to .xml" function is not enabled. I don't know if you did this intentionally or not but just wanted make sure that you know:).

Requests:

On the left pane, can you add in a "select all" cabs and a "de-select all" cabs function? I am sure that lots of users have already sorted out the cabs they want into one folder.

is there a way, if not could you add the feature, to import your own text file (previously created) to edit or add more cabs to the sdconfig.txt great prog for a great tool. thanks

Working on this but want to get all of the bugs out of the beast first.

Thinking of making this app flow based, like a wizard...

In that case, make it a selectable interface option (a la WinZip), so that you can start with the "wizard" whilst you're getting used to building your config, then when you're ready to get down and dirty, allow the user to switch into "hardcore" mode :D

Just a thought.....;)

Mark.

@doedoe: looks like various ideosyncracies with spaces/no spaces after different comnads that you might want to code for:

Examples
command with space after: CAB: \Storage Card\Cabs\mycab.cab
command with no space: CPY1:\Storage Card\Cabs\mycab.cab

Commands that require no space after the command
CPY1:
CPY2:
HIDE:
Commands that require a space after the command
CAB:
XML:
Commands where space requirement is unknown
LOCK:
RST:


I'm going to code this logic into SDAutoRun eventually.

It seems to me, and looking at all the 'ready made' config.txt files in operator ROMs, that if the command has 4 letters eg EXEC:, LOCK: there must NOT be a space after, but if the command has 3 letters eg XML:, CAB: there MUST be a space after.

It has the other advantage of making everything line up nicely if you view using a non-proportional font, something like Courier New :)

Welcome.not trick is working on ELF.

But it would be great if people could Capture the Registry settings for those HKLM\HARDWARE\\DEVICEMAP\\etc..... TOUCH values before they do choose to skip welcome.

Shouldn't be to hard for you to ad this as an option.

Great work i've been waiting for this.

I don't know how your doing it, this whole building an aplication.

I'm not a developer.

Eureka! You may have figured it out! first 4 characters are reserved for the command field, parameter starts at 5th character.

If it seems to work, it might be good to mention it in the User thread, possibly in the first post ;) - in the hopes that it may solve some of the problems people are having... building their SDConfig.txt files....

It's a real pity the ROM I'm using isn't UC compliant, I've got lots of plans!!

Hi DoeDoe,

I recall that sometime last month you posted images for the WinCE SDConfig. I was wondering if you were in any beta stages and/or if you were looking for beta testers?

I think your prototype screenshots were amazing. I'm sure if you created a new thread for this, tons of people would be knocking on your door to give feedback!
