I just tried to build my first cooked rom and it makes me crazy.
I have 3 questions :
1° In point N°5 you said to delete the XIP directory from /ROM. I couldn't find any XIP directory in /ROM. What's going wrong ?
2° I tried to continue then do the other steps to point N°7 and at the end of processing I had this error message
3° Sorry but I don't understand very well the point N°6. What do you mean exactly ?
Thanks for you help.
1) you have four main folders : ROM , SYS , OEM , and CUSTOMER CSC : in the ROM folder , you should find a XIP
folder , an imgfs.src
, and ROMHDR.bin
To port a new build , you have to port XIP and SYS which contain different parts of system core : so you should delete the old XIP folder from ROM
folder ( and not the.ROM folder which lays within the SYS folder ) to replace it by the new dumped one ( from xip_out.bin ) . The dumping command allows to create from xip.bin the new xip folder and the new ROMHDR.bin which contains the same informations as ROMHDR.txt ( when you manually port the xip ) , but in a different format , because the tools used in the kitchen are able to use .bin files and unable to use .txt files
2 and 3) With the "classic" G'Reloc.exe , there is an integer overflow ( it' s your error ) : before
dragging os.nb on BuildRom.cmd and after
finishing the Rom customization, you have to replace the TOOLS folder in the Kitchen , by the archive provided by Sector in the first post
depending on the OS on your PC , drag and drop xip_out.bin on dump.exe may not work : you have to open shell.cmd and write
@Sector : Hi bro , I use the files you uploaded ( without any modifications ) in the second post , everything is fine , but when I flash , the pop up windows during preconfiguration are grey . as far as I remember what Sztupy said , it means that the porting is defective .Therefore , the rom is able to change the operator settings , connect to internet through opera , phone calls and SMS are working ; most of the applications that I ( briefly ) tested worked as they should ( I didn' t test cab install ) , but I don' t like go on with a defective porting
Any idea ? I think it could be the MS visual C++ 2008 version ( my OS : Windows XP SP3 ) installed on my computer
