This will be a holding page for the updated i920 kitchen. I will be providing a link for a test stock 23529 rom. If it works, I will pack up the kitchen and have it ready for you tonight.

Ok. That was the easy version I had hoped would work. I guess I'll have to go about it a more difficult way then. For now, Use XIPKitchen to port, and just place the new xip.bin in /rom.

after getting the error, I tried it anyway with moving the new xip.bin to the rom folder and I flashed with my image, and It won't boot (ugly pixelated green screen again).

I saw your other post Lancez. Someone should give that kitchen a try. I can only do so much without an actual device to test it with.

Anyone have a link to an explanation of what XIP porting is? All I can seem to find is that it stands for execute in place and maybe has something to do with the way information is loaded into memory? But I have no idea what the purpose of XIP porting or what exactly it does. Maybe it can be summed up in a sentence or two? I don't mind doing my homework though. Thanks.

XIP: From Da_G's latest SYS thread at XDA

The Native Kernel Partition (XIP)

This is generally Partition 2 in the Partition table (following ULDR, and preceeding OS). It is split up into 2 Major ROM Packages, and several possible Minor ROM Packages. OEMXIPKernel makes up the device-specific part of NK, and MSXIPKernel makes up the device-agnostic part of NK. When porting from your current WM version to 6.5, you want to keep OEMXIPKernel as is, and only change the MSXIPKernel files and modules. An important module to consider in OEMXIPKernel is nk.exe - this module is the Native Kernel for the device and handles Virtual Memory, which has changed for WM 6.5, and is discussed in the following post.

You can check to see if you have a 6.5 Native Kernel by dumping xip.bin, and opening nk.exe/s000 in a hex editor. Search for the ASCII string "platform" - near this string should be the build number this nk.exe was compiled against. WM 6.5 builds began around 21100, and nk.exe compiled against them can take advantage of the new memory model discussed below. WM 6.1 and previous builds will be <=21058. nk.exe compiled against these builds will not be able to use the new memory model.

I can help test now... Was a bit preoccupied with get the rom up Omnia and Omnia II.

Personally WoZZer (even though u've said u liked the challenge), I think your work is already done (unless u feel like creating a kitchen that can uses Platform builder ;) ). U gave us the kithen and u pointed us to a XIP Kitchen that works.

All that's needed for the kitchen is instructions for porting xip and replacing sys. I can help with that. With that said, its your kitchen and it smells good. Let me know how I can help.

Thanks again. Your work (and the i8000 GSM gurus) is the only reason I'm keeping the Omnia II.

Did the 1.1 version of the kitchen with SYS ever get finished? Or is there just the one version 1 kitchen to work with? (From post 95 in the "ROM dumped from update" thread.
