This is a port of the excellent Da_G Fuze (GSM) Kitchen. It has been fully modified to work on all CDMA Touch Pro's. I personally have a Sprint Touch Pro.

Da_G has been gracious enough to consider this the "CDMA Version" of his very popular kitchen. Without his help over the past two weeks, I would have never been able to get the new Bepe (Ervius) style kitchen working. I also received a lot of initial help from MightyMike. His kitchens and personal OEMs are what got me started. So, here are the usual "thank you's":

Da_G, MightyMike (PPCGeeks), Bepe, Ervius, Dan-HTC-Touch (PPCGeeks), Tsowen, Showaco, TPlane37, Calkulin

If I have forgotten to mention you in the above list, don't worry, I didn't forget about you. (Wait, yes I did.) But, please send me a message so I can add you to the list!

Information on where the Kitchen was built from:
SYS: Da_G
XIP: Da_G
OEMs: MightyMike, Da_G, Tsowen (Taskbar), Showaco (Titanium Weather), Me
EXTs: Same as OEMs list
Kitchen Design: Da_G modification of Ervius' base kitchen based on Bepe's new style kitchen (PlatformBuilder)

Stable enough for every day use? Well, I am :D (Yes, I stole this from Da_G, BUT, I REALLY AM USING IT DAILY!)

Instructions for Pre-Built ROM Flashing (Via PC)

Step 1. Be sure your phone is Hard SPL unlocked and ready for a ROM. (Check the link at the bottom of this post).

Step 2. Extract your desired ROM to a clean folder.

Step 3. Connect your phone to PC via USB (Make sure ActiveSync/Mobile Device Center goes connected).

Step 4. Run Custom_RUU.exe in the folder you extracted the rar to.

Step 5. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Step 6. Wait for entire Windows Mobile customization process to complete and phone to soft-reset.

Step 7. Hard Reset. (Start->Settings->System->Clear Memory)

Step 8. Wait for entire Windows Mobile customization process to complete and phone to soft-reset.

Step 9. Job done!

Instructions for new style kitchen (build 21501 and above)

Step 1. Extract to a clean folder

Step 2. Run erviuskitchen.exe

Step 3. Click "load rom"

Step 4. Choose "dB_ROM-21501"

Step 5. Scroll down to section labelled "HERMAN-Device: HERMAN_External_Packages" in blue text

Step 6. Double click packages here to enable or disable them (first column reads True for enabled, False for disabled) (Leave alone for Defaults)

Step 7. Do the same for section under that labelled "SHARED-Devices: WindowsPhone_Components" as step 6 (Leave alone for Defaults)

Step 8. (Optional) Click "Save ROM" and choose a filename, to save your package choices for loading in the future

Step 9. Click "Create ROM"

Step 10. ROM is available in .nbh form in kitchen folder \HERMAN_RELEASE, you can either flash it with the included RUU.exe or rename to RAPHIMG.NBH and place on fat32 formatted SD card, for SD flash

General Notes for ROM and Kitchen

  • Always hard reset after initial flash. (I always wait till Autorun/SDAutorun complete and device soft resets)
  • Soft reset after hard reset doesn't hurt anything. (Comes from my old Titan days)
  • Don't worry about all the "Overwriting..." in the kitchen build process. It's normal and expected.
  • DO NOT use XIP 21502 in Kitchen. It's broken. I know what it is, but there is no change from the 21501 XIP, so just use it.
  • Report all bugs, etc here. Da_G and I have worked hard to make this as bug free as possible, but, Shhhtuff happens.
  • Don't blame me if you brick your device. It's not my, or the kitchens, fault. You recognize the potential problems that can arise from flashing your own ROMs on your phone. Da_G and I will take no responsibility. "Use at your own risk."
  • All that being said, I have had no issues during flash processes. I use this as my daily phone and have no ill side effects.
Before you Begin
If you have never flashed a ROM before, PLEASE read the information posted by egzthunder1 in the sticky thread of this forom. You must first unlock your SPL. All the information on doing this has been gathered and placed in a easy to follow step-by-step guide in the thread. Here is the direct link.

How To Create EXT Packages for New Style Kitchen:
  1. Download the EXT_Package_Tools.zip below and extract the two exe files inside to the <TOOLS> folder of the Kitchen.
  2. If you have a cab, run Cab2OEM.exe on it first. Otherwise, goto step 3.
  3. Run EXT_Packages_Rebuilder.exe on the OEM Package directory.
  4. Place the resulting folder in the <EXT\Herman\Common\*> Directory it belongs in.
Example:
Open two explorer windows. Have one window open to the <TOOLS> directory of the Kitchen. Have the other window opened to the directory containing your CAB or Original OEM Package.

Now, if its a CAB, drag the CAB file and drop it on top of Cab2OEM.exe. This will open a command prompt and close it. You should now have a folder in the Explorer window containing the CAB file.

Make sure the folder contains all the files, including the *.rgu file, etc. Now Take that entire folder and drop it on top of EXT_Packages_Builder.exe (Drag the Folder, not the files inside, but the ROOT folder). This should restructure the Folder created in step 2 to have a <files> folder inside of it that contains all the files for the Package, including any .provxmls. There will also be an <app.dat> and <app.reg> file (if applicable). The <app.dat> is the old "initflashfiles.txt". The <app.reg> is the old "*.rgu".

Now check the reg file and make sure it looks setup properly. Cab2OEM.exe likes to bork registry files sometimes. So I would look over this carefully. After you're sure its good, move the folder to the appropriate area in <EXT\Herman\COMMON>. Load up your fav ROM pref from my Kitchen. Scroll down to your package and make sure its "TRUE". Cook and be done.

EXT Package Folder Structure:
<Root Folder> - Name of Package
--<files> - Folder that contains all files that will be installed to \Windows
--<app.dat> - The old <initflashfiles.dat>, contains instructions to copy files, etc.
--<app.reg> - Contains all registry entries for the Package.

Gotta have pizza to go with that Keg....

You should enjoy that keg mate. Good work :) I did wonder when you would be bringing this kitchen out after noticing your posts in the original thread (I own a GSM Raph but have been thinking of cooking roms for CDMA aswell and wasnt sure if it was possible).

EDIT: Oh yeah, I have quite a good copy of Xboxmods new Manilla port in EXT packages if you want a copy that works in this kitchen :)

I have been debating adding XBoxMod's TF3D2 for a while now. I have seen it cause some issues in other kitchens, so have been very skeptical of adding it until more stability is shown.

However, I wouldn't mind throwing it in my test kitchen and firing off a test build to see how it runs for a day or two. Getting off TF3D and onto TF3D2 (Rhodium!!) would be my next logical step, and very much worth it.

The reason it took so long for me to release this is my own perfectionism. I can't stand to release something that isn't nearly flawless. I have had it "almost finished" for about a week. Then I would notice another issue and have to fix that. Then another, and another. Most were very minor (sounds would not list properly in settings, mortscript wouldn't delete from autorun, provxml's would backfire, etc). I finally set a goal of having it released by this weekend, regardless of status. Luckily I feel this is in great shape as most of the issues I have found are resolved.

Thanks for the support!

These are the packages that I cook by default into my ROM. The main thing with this kitchen is that it seems to crash when you try overwriting a module with a file, in TF3D2 there is a taskmanager.exe that tries to replace the original module which is why the kitchen dies when cooking, in my version I have just removed the exe and all works fine :)

EDIT: Here is the link!! TF3D2_EXT_Package

Is there any way you can make this an installable RO for the Fuze? I know it's a kitchen, but the only computers i have access to are the ones at work at this time, and I don't want to install anything to them. I love the taskbar icons!
BTW - what color is the selected items?

Thanks in advance

Wrong thread

I see bad things happening with this being in the GSM forum. I see nebies flashing this to their Fuze and bricking there phones. This should be moved to CDMA. One quick question why do we have a CDMA forum and a separate GSM forum if we are going to allow CDMA in the GSM forum.??????????:confused:

I stand corrected. The moderator's have spoken and this thread has been moved to the proper location. Now if they can clean off the "Wrong Forum" posts, we'll be in business! :D

Thank you for so forcefully pointing out it was in the wrong location. The Forums for the Raphael area a bit misleading.

I don't mind being the guinea pig on this. I'm having some issues with Mighty Rom 5 anyways, so hopefully this ROM addresses some of those. Any known issues? Thanks!

P.S. If this ROM bricks my phone....watch your back. j/k. :D

btw: I have a Sprint Touch Pro

----------------------------------------------

Edit:

Just got done flashing and hard resetting. So far, so good. I like the fact that Titanium Weather is already installed. Any chance of getting ATContacts in the ROM? I know I can install it, but I'm just saying... Thanks!

@djbeames

Good work, pal! Now, considering the amount of misinformation floating around in the whole Raphael section, you may want to link to my first post in this section (This Sticky). This contains all the needed stuff to HardSPL and flash the roms. I know that you are familiar with PPCGeeks, but a lot of poeple aren't, so giving them instructions on how to do it will probably save a few people from either bricking their devices or simply from posting questions such as "how do I put this in my phone?"
Again, good work and it is great to finally see some Chefs in the Herman section :D!

Thank you for trying it! But, trust me, you are NOT the guinea pig. I have my wife and my touch pro's I try it all on first. Then I have a couple friends that also have them. Between the 4 to 5 of us, we thoroughly test it all. I have been developing this initial release for quite some time now. See below...

Btw, let me know how it goes. I'm here to fix things and make improvements and adjustments. As far as ATContacts is concerned, hit me up with a link and I will check it out. At the very least I might add it to the kitchen as an external package.

Consider it done. As soon as I get home for the evening I will post more information in the OP and link to your sticky. Thank you for pointing it out.

Edit: Done. XDA was down all night, so I didn't get it added until this morning. Thank you again for putting that info together. Good documentation.

Great work, linking from my thread

:)

Yep. We finally did it, eh Da_G? Thanks for all you have done on this kitchen. It truly is because of your willingness to share, this has been released.
