Um, no. It's actually less limited. What led you to think it was more limited?

Quite a few rom chef's have spent month's customizing their rom. This means refining registry entries, picking and choosing what programs to include, maintaining current programs versions. These folks have put countless hours into these. I have my own rom preference. I personally prefer OMJ's rom and his customizations. And honestly, I don't use a couple of programs my chef chooses, and I usually add a couple of my own programs. This tutorial will help you cut down on the time that UserCustomization takes. We all know the benefits of a Custom Rom! This brings the art to the end user level.
If you really want to cut down on User Customization time, learn to use PPCkitchen.org's kitchen. It can be used as a drop in replacement for bepe's buildos, but it's real power lies in it's additional features for end user rom customization. There is no substitute.

Re: How to Customize a Custom Rom: Adding/Removing Programs

I probably removed something important just now on my first time editing. My edited ROM didn't want to load up(just blank screen after the HTC screen). Good thing I was able to reflash my phone using the SD method. :P

Same problem here. But I didn't remove anything... I just ran throught the process to see how it works. I did notice that the newly created rom is 10mb smaller then the input even though I didn't remove anything...Does anyone have ideas...

Re: How to Customize a Custom Rom: Adding/Removing Programs

I have noticed shrinkage of about 1-2mb in the past, but 10mb is significant. When you run PrepIt.bat are you waiting until it says complete? Same with BuildIt.bat. Both of these processes pop up several dos windows and it does take a while.

Yes I some roms work fine others don't. I happen to be using derek's new 19.1 vista/ gpsd rom and just tried it with that one. The input file is 73mb and the signed ruu is only 60mb. All I did was prepit, then buildos, then builtit and flash it. I make to the 2nd splash and then black screen. So I then flash from the card.... Any advice????

I'll look into that tonight. Are you sure he isn't packaging his RUU folder with his rom in the exe? That is between 8-19mb.

A kitchen is what you use to build and package a Rom.

How about this link...post 134
OMJ's WM6.1 Custom Touch ROM w/ UC, GPS, REV A! Updated 5/29/08

There are 3 boot up images. I think we were introduced to the first (change) one with the PPCKitchen. Most roms never messed with changing this one, so we never noticed it before.

I did the 5 steps, and here is what I got...Exactly the same.

The kitchen in the link utilizes "BigStorage" technology that saves you on average 10megs when you flash your rom. Giving you more room on your
device.

So your problem is no problem at all right? You gain 10 megs thanks to compression! I've used this kitchen for so long, I almost forgot about it....
