Templates: Custom Start Menu's for your ROM - 9/29/08

Here is my contribution to the Diamond Community. I am still waiting on the Touch Pro, but I suppose I can help out some chefs here too.

What it is? Custom Start Menu's for your Diamond's!
This is gonna be pretty cut and dry, so here goes.

1. Extract the appropriate OEM into your kitchen's ..\OEM directory.
2. MOVE the file initflashfiles.dat from the OEM to OEM_Lang_0409. (overwrite the existing)
3. Follow My Rom Building Tutorials to customize other OEM's you have added to your rom.

What I have done, is taken all of the \Windows\Start Menu entries from the ..\OEM\OEM_Lang_0409\initflashfiles.dat and moved them into an OEM's initflashfiles.txt. Most seasoned chef's here can finger it out. Once you look inside, do the same with your oem's you add into your rom. Look inside the initflashfiles.txt and MOVE the start menu entries to your new start menu oem.


There are two packages. One for Sprint, and one for Telus. Both are very similiar except carrier added stuff. Here they are:

zzz_My_Start_Menu_OEM_Diamond_Sprint

zzz_My_Start_Menu_OEM_Diamond_Telus


That's it. Cut and dry. If you have any questions, ask.

Telus is Based off Stock Rom from FTP (well, actually tc/gf's v1.04 OEM package, but it'll be the same...)

Sprint is Based off Stock Rom from FTP (this one is actually the stock rom. )

Enjoy all!

got a download link to the stock rom? The one for the diamond should work. I'm sure it's just a matter of a couple files. To delete them, add the entry to the provxml file, then add the entry to the initflashfiles.txt in the OEM to put it where you want it. The windows files will be the same, I'm just not sure what additional programs they've added to the touch pro...

Oh, and here is the method I use for ppckitchen. I don't have to edit the initflashfiles.dat at all. I use provxml to delete the start menu entries and then initflashfiles.txt to move them where I want as mentioned above. This is where this has evolved into...This method should work with minor modifications with any SYS version...

Re: Templates: Custom Start Menu's for your ROM - 9/29/08

Is there any way to add this start menu to an existing rom without cooking it in?

Re: Templates: Custom Start Menu's for your ROM - 9/29/08

Whoa...I'd forgot about this one... You can add this to an existing rom with some trickery, but I wouldn't recommend it. It would cripple any other programs the original chef added and the way windows moves them around.

However, it's easy enough to do with your favorite file explorer. The startmenu is basically determined by the placement of those files in \Windows\Start Menu on your mobile device. So you can copy/remove the links to where you want them and get the same results. Unless your like me and flash everytime you get near a computer with a kitchen on it...lol!
