Helpful Tips/Files on building Roms for Treo Pro

After MANY i repeat MANY hours of scratching my head with this device and wondering what that hell Palm did lol I think I have about everything figured out. This device is not set up like most and can be quite confusing for a novice or anyone for that matter. In this thread I will share my knowledge Ive gained so far on it and share some files with you.

First and foremost, these files are being shared with you as a courtesy, PLEASE DO NOT put these files in your rom and claim them as your own, all I ask is a little thanks or reference to where you got them from... thanks in advance.

Now onto the technical details of this device.
Carrier Settings/Bloatware:
Most HTC devices have carrier settings/cabs in the OEMOperators, and OperatorPkg, not so on the Treo. Palm wanted to be different. On the Treo pro, Palm mounts and EXT Rom on first boot to a partition. This EXT Rom cant be accessed unless you change some registry entries, to save you the trouble, here are the files contained in it: EXT ROM FILES . This rar file contains all XML's/Cabs for carrier settings and some bloatware. This dumping of bloatware can be disabled by deleting the references the EXT rom in the RGU in OEMOperators.

UC Autorun:
Palm again likes to be different and doesnt use the standard UC, they use something called "Varnish" its basically a prettier, more locked down version of UC Autorun. To disable, find the regs refering to it in OEMOperators. After it is disabled, simply drop a normal UC Autorun OEM in and your good to go.

Packaging of OEM's:
Although not just a Palm thing, it is still highly annoying. All CDMA devices tend to dump all files/Rgu's into one folder in the OEMAPPS. I have painstakingly compiled them and separated all the files and rgu's into separate folders. You can find that here: PACKAGED OEM's

Thats about all for now, please consider a donation if I helped you. Not mandatory but definitely appreciated.

Thanks,
-Cfay

Re: Helpful Tips/Files on building Roms for Treo Pro

So how does one go about cooking a ROM, then? I'm very interested in learning how to do this...

Thanks!

I would start off PPCKitchen and start disecting stock roms. There is no set instructions on building a rom, its mostly trial and error and learning as you go

I downloaded PPCKitchen but it didn't list the Treo Pro under kitchens... Also, where can I get stock ROMs?

Thanks a million!

So if it doesn't have a kitchen, how am I supposed to cook a ROM?

I've got the 1.04 executable installer but I don't know where to find the .nbh file, which I'm assuming is what I need?

Kitchen: Use any newer HTC kitchen.
EXE: If you have winrar installed, right click the EXE and click extract files. NBH will be extracted.

Re: Helpful Tips/Files on building Roms for Treo Pro

CFay,
A couple of quick questions.. do you recall what the executable name was called of the customization script that loads everything from Extended ROM? Also is the Extended ROM something someone can have custom to a ROM or is it independent of upgrades/custom roms, etc. I am currently running what I've started of a 6.1 ROM but since I am still just figuring things out I haven't gotten as much cleaned out as I'd like. Lastly do you have any suggestions for getting 6.5 running in a new custom rom? I had only briefly attempted based loosely on your existing ROM but wasn't able to get very far so I abandoned it (the ROM that Ervius was spitting out was only 7MB in size).

Thanks!
