Mac:
  • Does not use e2fsdroid for building img files as I am not able to compile it for Mac so far.
Windows:
  • No longer being updated. v3.2.1.3 is the last version. The Linux kitchen runs perfectly in WSL.

  • If the kitchen can't find an internet connection, try whitelisting sr-code.com in your antivirus browsing security. If it still does not find a connection, try using a VPN.
  • The colors are not perfect due to Windows not supporting ASCII escape codes by default. If you want it to look more like Linux, you can run the Linux version in WSL (formerly known as "Bash on Ubuntu on Windows").

Thanks for the info. This project is still Beta as marked in the OP. Once we figure out how to solve all the small issues I will update the documentation and the kitchen to try and help everything along as much as possible.

Running as admin in windows brings up another point I forgot about. Apparently Windows can only create symlinks as admin, so if you need to create a system.img you will need to run as admin.

You could try creating a batch script that self escalates, and calls "python superr" as Admin. I'm not great with Python by any means. I have a bit more experience with batch.

Is there no log file anywhere for errors? Tried to extract a 7.1.2 ROM, and it says there was a problem, but no info or anything.

@SuperR. Do you provide a Free version soon? Does we have to pay another $10 if we using version 2?

I believe he wants to hold off on a "free" release until more issues have been resolved. That leave those that paid for it with access (limited number of people) to help test it. Also sounds like it leaves those with a slightly more vested interest in it to help with input, as they paid for it, and therefore use it more than those that typically just have the free version.

At least in my case, the $10 I put up is all I needed. No additional money is (currently) required.

I don't know anything about batch scripts. If you want to write it to help out, I am sure some people would find it useful. I don't even know how to start cmd.exe as admin without right clicking lol

Is there no log file anywhere for errors? Tried to extract a 7.1.2 ROM, and it says there was a problem, but no info or anything.
There is currently very limited logging. It is something that I would like to improve on for sure. Please send firmware as requested in the OP and I will have a look.

edit: I just downloaded and extracted the latest bullhead 7.1.2 release on Windows and Linux with no issues.
edit2: Just added the pip commands to the install instructions in the OP :)

There is already a free version of the kitchen https://forum.xda-developers.com/ap...chen-superr-s-kitchen-v1-1-50-v2-1-6-t3597434

There is no plan for a free Python version. The free version is Bash and the donate version is Python. Eventually, support for the Bash donate version will end. All donors have already been added to the Python repo. There is no need to donate again for access unless you want to :)

I got this Error message when i want start the Kitchen and psutil is installed. I'm on ubuntu 14.04 :confused:
I dont think basic psutils is enough
Might be overkill, but enter this in your terminal
Code:
sudo apt-get install psutils && sudo apt-get install python-psutil && sudo apt-get install python3-psutil && sudo apt-get install python3.5
I had the same error on Linux Mint 18 Sarah, but the kitchen fired straight up for me after I entered the command and received the updates.

    v3.2.1.9 has been released :)

    Details can be found in the release post.

    v3.2.1.8 has been released :)

    See the release post for details.

    edit: Oops, I forgot to change the version on the server so your kitchen knows there is an update available. Fixed now :)

    edit2: Oops again. I also forgot to list the new run command after full ROM build feature. It has been added to the release post with instructions.

    Support for .ext4 or .mg files, do you have any instructions on creating them? After all, I extract the files to repack
    .ext4 files are just ext4 img files. You can rename system.ext4 to system.img, and system.img to system.ext4. Rename as needed.

    It would be nice if you added a feature to be able to turn on a beep at the end of making (and zipping) a new ROM.
    I know it's not high on your list, but it's just a simple printf '\7' before the "would you like to sign the zip" after the ROM has been made and zipped.
    It's a kitchen, after all. It needs a "bing", once the cooking is done.
    The next version will add the option to run a command/commands at the end of a Full ROM build. It will have a global configuration entry (kitchen/tools/srk.conf) and you can run any commands you want.

    For example, I have MPV Player installed on my machine. I set the configuration to mpv "/home/user/music/my_favorite_song.mp3" and now it plays my favorite song at the end of the full ROM build.

    In your case, you could just set the configuration to printf '\7' and your beep will play. FYI, the beep does not play for me. That is why the command is changeable. Anyone can make it do anything they want after the build. One could even extend the kitchen this way if they were so inclined :)

    Sorry to bug ya. I'm unable to download the busybox zip from the kitchen. Tried whatever I could think of to get it to work. I ended up putting the busybox magisk module zip in there with the hopes that it would work. Will it work? Also, is there any data I can provide that would give you what you need to help me fix the busybox download?
    Busybox download issue is leftover from when XDA moved to the new site. The kitchen parses the page to find the download, but the format changed so it was not being found. It will be fixed in the next update.
    In the srk.conf file it says "forcee=fileencryption", can this setting be used to completely disable force encryption?
    If not, is that possible with the kitchen? How would I do that if it's possible? Can DM-Verity also be disabled?
    As far as I know the kitchen already removes forceencryption and dm-verity. The line in srk.conf is keeping track of what it removed so it can add it back if you want.
    Would you ever consider (if possible) adding makesysrw or superunpack to your kitchen? Maybe with increased functionality?
    I reviewed the code from both projects you linked. It seems like all they do is remove the shared_blocks ext4 feature. I believe you can accomplish the same in the kitchen by building the ext4 img file without the shared_blocks feature. In the file kitchen/tools/srk.conf, add the line shared_blocks=No and save the file. Now when you build your img file it will not contain the shared_blocks feature.

    If you have a problem running out of space when building, you can enter the img size manually and increase the size by any amount you need to make it build.

    You're awesome. When I get the chance I'm totally sending another donation your way. Wish I could give more.

    Update on Android Pie deodex:

    anestisb has finished Android P support for vdexExtractor. Android Pie introduced a new dex format, Compact Dex (cdex). anestisb created a new tool to convert cdex to standard dex which is required for Android Pie deodex. Unfortunately, the new tool will not currently work on Windows as it requires many AOSP dependencies and Google does not support compiling AOSP on Windows. It will only work on Linux and Mac. There are many Windows kitchen users, and I have no idea what to do about it.

    More information can be found here.

    If anyone can help, please do. Thanks :)

    EDIT: The Windows aapt.exe binary was not functioning properly. I have reverted to the previous aapt.exe that works. The win_tools package has been updated on the server. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    If you are on Windows and have already updated to v3.1.6.3, you can find the working aapt.exe here. Replace kitchen\tools\win_tools\aapt.exe with the one in the zip.

    Hello everyone :)

    The kitchen is moving to a new server. There could be some strange behavior if you reset a PC or register a new account right now. The DNS can take up to 48 hours to propagate globally. If you reset your PC now, it may result in failing authentication after the DNS is propagated. You can reset again if this is the case.

    I do not expect any problems or downtime, but this information serves as a warning just in case :)
