Ok so I'm going to start.
I just cooked in your Packages into a JH2 Clean ROM with only Samsung Dialer, Keypad, Call Log and Phonebook included, as well as Adobe Reader LE that comes with the original JH2 ROM.
Cooking worked fine, i also included the German mui files by my man tom33 from Germany, files i excluded following files from your Packages:
From HTC Messaging Client 1_8_20171628_00:
From Manila Twitter v2.5.20161326.0
and from the Original ROM I excluded (from OEMApps folder)
These were the files mentioned by BuildOS as duplicated files when cooking.
And now here's what happens with the phone:
It boots as usual, everything is fine, looks just like my basic Clean ROM. Sense won't start automatically on startup. I can enable it via Settings -> Today -> Elements on today, but it still won't start. I looked for manila.exe in \windows\ but didn't find it. I guess most of the other Manila related files are present, except manila.exe.
Anybody got similar errors trying this? Or any other chef know's a solution?
By the way, I'm cooking a German ROM. Is any fine-tuning necessary?
Thanks for your help,
