Okay, so I downloaded the stock images from google and i've tried and tried and when I come up to load the system.img file in ext2read it will not show up at all. i select the image but the program does nothing. any ideas what I might be missing?

Windows 7 64bit
Java JDK 32 and 64bit (dont ask)
dsixda ver. 181

ext2read is for ext2 images, the GN has ext4 but not one compatible with the dsixda kitchen. I'm currently trying to work out what to do but no one really wants to help :(

I don't use Windows, so you may need to set up a VM running something like Ubuntu to sucessfully do the update.

The images from the google update are a 'Sparse EXT4" volume. You need to use utility called simg2img which can be found within ext4_utils.zip (attached to the following)

http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1081239

Download the sources, and compile them by using 'make'

Then extract the system.img from the Google Update to the folder where the simg2img binary has been compiled, and type:

#./simg2img system.img sys.img

This will create a sys.img file (around 640MB), copy this new file (aswell as the boot.img file extracted from the update) into dsixda/original_update and run the kitchen :)

As a quick note, Don't run simg2img on boot.img, it's not needed!

I already have a fix for this issue in the Android Kitchen but have not checked it into GitHub yet. ;)

Or rename file to system.img.ext4 before extracting, and then run kitchen.

Well, using the above tips I've got a ROM built. Happy days you'd think? WRONG!

ROM won't flash, getting 'error status 0' - anyone know how to sort it? I think it's to do with the updater-script but don't know for sure

It's down to the updater-script and also where certain parts of the ROM now need to be as we no longer have separate locations for internal and external files. It's all a bit confusing!

I'll just be waiting for this Git push hopefully if that is what dsixda was intending :-D. I could what I use to do and just copy that stuff and use someone else's updater scripts.

Basically, the su and busybox binaries needs to go to /xbin as opposed to /bin and then use someone's updater-binary/updater-script and it seems to work

one more noob at building source question...

Can you download Google apps source code to compile into your own builds yourself or no?

I've been trying to find it myself but I can't find anything from Google directly

dsixda has updated the kitchen but it's still wrong, the kernel doesn't flash properly and I kept boot looping once I got the updater-sript working so I'm gonna try again in the new year and make my desktop a complete linux box as opposed to using a VM
