Step by Step: Learn To Cook Custom ROM

Recommended Posts

it doesnt extract it so to speak....highlight it, then Control & page down, you should see 2 or 3 more files (under it), UPDATE.exe will be one of them.

Now copy that (UPDATE.exe) out of there, drag and drop it on your desktop (or wherever you wnat it).

It works, as this is what i do (and others - lots of).

Then put the exe thru Pako'a app.

they need to be converted into packages...

You can use sztupy's cab2pkg command in shell, but i use also ervius Package creator v2.7 as it is simple easy and works most of the time.

Doing this, does not guarantee that the packages will work. SOme cabs cannot be turned in packages, and some will not work at all.

Sometimes deleting the .rgu file that is created can work, depends on what the cab is for.

Good luck. There is a txt file in the kitchen for cab2pkg commands and how to use it.

that doesnt look like the same file i used...

Is this from samsung site?? I used DXIA5 for singapore, maybe you should go to samsung site and try again.

Have you tried to put that file thru pako's i900EXEcutor?? I think it may work??

I am at work, so can try anything myself.

Maybe you are trying the wrong EXE...

Before it... you have to use the i900 Extractor...

Or, try this method:

if this DXIA5 is from the Samsung site, you need to extract the updater from that.

Use Total Commander or Winrar. Then you can put the exe you get thru the kitchen. :excl:

If that is your problem.

I used to use XP SP3 and i have no issues, so it's not that bro...

Good luck

When I use a ROM original (UPDATE.exe), Samsung site, the system does not allow me to extract the files, but when I use a modified ROM, I can extract it.

I want to work with an original source.

Tks a lot,

Pedro.

Pedro,

Você tem que usar esse UPDATE.exe no i900_Executor!

(You need to use UPDATE.exe in i900_Executor)

E você não está fazendo isso, com certeza!

(And I'm certain that you aren't doing it)

When I extract the Rom.exe it gives me the 3 folders...but nothing is in the OEM folder, and v.little in the SYS Folder, (only /.ROM

/.VM and Beta, make your own rom), what have I done wrong?

you cannot extract a cooked ROM , you have to choose a stock one

Ok, thanks, sorted that out.

I have now extracted a rom, but where is the .rgu file to open? In which folder?

I'm rather stuck at this point too. Perhaps it's because I'm using Secany's DXID1 exe as a base, could it be that the .rgu file is missing from specific ROM releases?

PaSSoA mentioned he removed the rgu's from his releases, but I assumed the semi-official Samsung ROM update should have the rgu's intact? Or, do people construct their DXID1 derivative ROMs based on rgu's they got from yet another ROM?

Basically I'm trying to create a lite DXID1 ROM with Windows Mobile 6.1. Haven't seen one around anyway. ;)

*edit*

Just tried shokka9's guide, searching for rgu's there does produce a list:

_dats\Install_20757XIP\ROM\XIP\723fb954-d931-4348-b672-82a188e587b5.rgu

_dats\Install_20757XIP\ROM\XIP\boot.rgu

_dats\Install_20757XIP\ROM\XIP\boot_ms.rgu

_dats\Install_20954XIP\ROM\XIP\723fb954-d931-4348-b672-82a188e587b5.rgu

_dats\Install_20954XIP\ROM\XIP\boot.rgu

_dats\Install_20954XIP\ROM\XIP\boot_ms.rgu

_dats\Install_Favorite_hackings\FavHacks\e27fa0d5-0ff5-4d41-9fb4-8647b8190b56.rgu

_dats\Install_HTCTaskMan\HTCTaskMan\a0e9457e-943c-44b4-9fe9-aed55e8a775f.rgu

_dats\Install_M2D19b\ZM2D19b\5490c94e-9d76-496b-bd6c-73ddf6166fd1.rgu

_dats\Install_M2D19b_Lite\ZM2D19b\5490c94e-9d76-496b-bd6c-73ddf6166fd1.rgu

_dats\Install_M2D21\ZM2D19be6eabc-1053-4e1a-a8ea-51edf3ecdbc5.rgu

_dats\Install_Remote_Tracker\RemoteTracker\bd859fbb-d361-4c95-8def-8536ff88474c.rgu

_dats\Update_dotNET_CE_to_35\Netcfv35\a8f43c9f-bc38-430e-81d1-a2e6c650f225.rgu

_dats\Update_flash_to_31\ZZ_AdobeFlash\d726fef1-c84d-40f5-9010-07a6a3fd70a7.rgu

So at least I'm getting somewhere now with the kitchen from that thread. :D

Though unless I need any of the ROM\XIP\boot*.rgu files, 'the rgu' as mentioned in the topic still seems to elude me.

Maybe you should wear glasses :D : take a look at Shokka's threads for WM 6.1 Roms , Sector' s or Stevenh's ones

Searching before posting is always better

Right, I need glasses. Where did you see a *lite* WM6.1 DXID1 ROM? Especially ones without that bloated fullscreen volume tweak. :D

I think shokka's ROMs are nice, but AFAIK he only released a WM6.5 DXID1 ROM, and called it his last? :D

Either way, I'm still interested in building my own ROMs anyway. ;)
