I know this is my 1st post here. I have a Samsung Omnia i900. Im new to Samsung ROM building, but I have done my share for the Motorola E398 and V3i (Long time ago)
I've been reading a lot about how to make your own Roms for the Omnia.
What I want is changing a stock update (I'd love wm6.5).
I'd like an origional rom from wich I'll just remove a lot of crap wich I don't use.
Now I've tried everything described in the how-to, but I can't get it to work.
Everytime I try to extract the roms, I get a message saying Access Denied (Soz for not posting a screenshot, but I have a dutch version of Windows)
There are a lot of extra files (Including the 3 new maps when extracting)
But the map for OEM and SYS is empty. (Both of these have the error)
I tried with a lot of ROMS here and all give the same error.
When I try to extract an official rom (Downloaded from the Samsung site) it doesn't unpack anything, giving the message no files can be found.
Now I have installed everything (.net framework including all updates and the C++ packages) but nothing seems to help. I even tried installing Visual C++.
I have also tried on 2 PC's. 1 is a Windows 7 PC, running VMWare XP. (I try it on the XP machine) the other PC is just regular XP.
Both give the same Access Denied error.
I searched the forum, but can only find 1 person with the same error, but didn't see any ways around it.
Is there any specific ROM i can use for my intentions? a clean, out-of-the-box ROM from wich I can remove my unwanted software? I don't need to add anything.
I know I can use many of the great roms here on my phone, but most still have either too much (unwanted) software, or apps wich I do want to keep are removed.
I hope anyone can help me here :)
