Cooking ROM's

general ROM cooking question.
I've figured out how to add cabs to my kitchen. But how do I create a link for it in the start menu of windows (cooked into the ROM)? I could do it afterwards, but I know there is an easier way.

p.s. and yes I tried to search and came up empty.

For visual kitchen its in app.dat
For PPCK its in initflashfiles.txt

For example if you want facebook in startmenu:

Directory("\windows\start menu\programs"):-File("Facebook.lnk","\windows\Facebook.lnk")

If you want it in "startmenu>Multimedia" :
Directory("\windows\start menu\programs\Multimedia"):-File("Facebook.lnk","\windows\Facebook.lnk")

.lnk can be creted with OEMizer
App.dat can be edited with notepad

Re: Cooking ROM's

ok, now i'm really confused. i'm no programmer.
using oemizer, can i just pull cab files into the kitchen, or do I need to convert them first to .xml? i think i can do that and add them that way and just use the program manager I have to add folders after ROM cooked and quickly sort them.

Re: Cooking ROM's

If you baked OEMized package,its will be "installed" right after flash.
If you added some cabs to kitchen,you still have to install them manually or with autorun/run cc after flash

Lets say you want facebook in multimedia,you write in app.dat
Directory("\windows\start menu\programs\Multimedia"):-File("Facebook.lnk","\windows\Facebook.lnk")

It will automaticly create "Multimedia" folder in start menu

If you write:

Directory("\windows\start menu\programs\Media"):-File("Facebook.lnk","\windows\Facebook.lnk")

It will automaticly create "Media" folder in start menu

You need to start from simple cabs (with 1 .exe in it)

Re: Cooking ROM's

so the oemizer that comes with caulkulin's kitchen doesn't actually put the programs into the ROM??? I thought that it did. i want everything but games cooked in since it is supposed to be a little faster/ more stable that way.

tried to use the oemizer but not sure that it took. edited everything I wanted, added a couple of folders to start menu, imported a couple of cabs.
clicked create oem and it did. but then when i tried to save, it errored than kicked me out. how do I know if the oem took?

I can tell you an easy way,but your OEMs will be autoselected (like a system package)
Here is what you do:
Lets say you have Facebook_v1.2.cab
1)In kitchen tools drag and drop Facebook_v1.2.cab to Cab2OEM.exe
2)It will create Facebook OEM folder in same kitchen location
3)Move Facebook_V1.2 OEM to

Calkulin's Visual WVGA Kitchen >OEM>Touch_Pro2>Common

4) in Calkulin's Visual WVGA Kitchen >OEM>Touch_Pro2

open packages.txt with notepad.You should see something like:
Dummy FWUPDATE=True§
Dummy SQM=True§
OEMDrivers=True§
OEMMISC=True§
OEMVERSION=True§
System - App Service 1.76.0.0=True§

Add your OEM name to package list:

Dummy FWUPDATE=True§
Dummy SQM=True§
OEMDrivers=True§
OEMMISC=True§
OEMVERSION=True§
Facebook_v1.2=True§
System - App Service 1.76.0.0=True§

Your facebook will be autoselected and cooked

Inside of Facebook_V1.2 OEM you can find initflashfiles.txt and you can "move" Facebook shortcut anywhere you want like I said earlier

Normally for games you dont have to edit initflashfiles
