HTC Kitchen OS Builder for Windows Mobile
Here we have this great visual kitchen, presented by XDA member HD2Owner. This is a new kitchen is not based on the old platform re builder and was tested working for the following devices:
HTC blueAngel, Touch 2 (Mega), Touch of 3450 & 3452 (Elf of & Elfin), Diamond, HD, Diamond 2, Max 4G, Iolite, HD2, Mini, Kovsky and Whitestone W
The basic purposes of this OS builder are:
-Assembling flat dump from the packets
-Assembling ROM-File (for supported devices)
-Extract/dump ROM-File (for supported devices)
In the words of the developer, “OSBuilder can build NB0, NB and NBH files and for supported devices it can change rom version, date and/or some other data.
Also, many other functions are included (Manila other language exclusion for example), which can be useful during creation and assembling of dump and ROM.”
No doubt a great tool to have in mind if you are willing to learn the art of Cooking your personal flavor.
Be sure you know what are you doing before proceeding and please leave feed back.

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
