Let's say i were to remove "cube" in the kitchen, which has a soft key in DG21. I want to reassign that soft key to something else prior to the build process.
Or is there a way to dump the ROM on my phone after i make registry edits and other sorts of revisions?
there isn't a way to dump the rom after you make the registry edits.
1. a rom dump only dumps whats in rom, not what you have changed, so you'll get the exact file cooked.
2. you can get a registry dump if you need to make changes to the registry.
a. you can use a registry editor on your phone like dotfred's task manager to export (LOVE THIS)
b. you can also use a program to export registry through activesync
I use Soti Pocket Controller, as it gives me remote control of the phone, AND can export registry.
The reason I don't use dotfred's anymore, is because it doesn't export consistantly. What I mean is the lines are not the same everytime, so you are looking at a before and after registry capture, it is extremely difficult to find the exact registry as they are on different lines. Soti exports them uniformly and is easy to use WINMERGE to fine the exact lines that have been changed.
anyway to answer your question, try these registry entries for your kitchen:
;used to stop error debuging which is useless for us
also look in mxipcold_zzzOEM_001.provxml for this
<parm name="Open" value="\windows\Phonebook.lnk" datatype="string" />
<parm name="" value="My Contacts" datatype="string" />
<parm name="Open" value="\windows\Cube.lnk" datatype="string" />
<parm name="" value="Cube" datatype="string" />
Incase you didn't know the .rgus are processed into your default.hv, and user.hv files located in temp\dump.
They are processed alpha/numerically so if you have the same registry entry in two .rgu files, the last one processed will prevail.
The .provxml files will get processed on first boot. These are also alpha/numerically executed. so you need to check those as well if something you changed didn't take effect.
I have a folder called "custom_settings" and I put a file called ffffffff-ffff-ffff-ffff-ffffffffffff.rgu in there, so I KNOW that my reg entries will get processed/take effect last. Unless of course there is a .provxml that changes them back on first boot.
