Simplify Rom Cooking with PreKitchen Tool

Are you a veteran rom chef? Or maybe you are beginning to explore the possibility of making your own roms. Whatever the case may be, we all know that cooking can be both problematic and time consuming, especially at the time of making sure that our kitchens are structured properly. With this idea in mind, xda moderator and developer TehPenguin has released a tool that is bound to make chef’s lives much easier.

The tool’s core function is to merge files and modules from dumped roms with pre-existing kitchens by comparing, merging, and cleaning up all the files needed to make a functional rom for any HTC device. This is a universal application, which means that it can work with many kitchens including (but not limited to) EVK, OSKitchen, and many more.

So, if you are still considering cooking your own roms, this tool will make your life considerably simpler.

New and Improved – Much more functionality than the old one!
I’m trying to make this a general cleaning\sorting\worker app for processing dumped folders. If you’d like a feature added, please let me know.

What is it?
This is a simple program designed to take the hard work out of rearranging, cleaning and merging dumped ROMs with Kitchens.

What can it do?

  • Clean – Removed all files with the same name as their directories (This is very useful when converting files to modules)
  • Sort – Files and Folders can be sorted by:
    • Ervius Kitchen’s folder format
    • osKitchen’s folder format
    • By comparing to a donor folder (should work with any kitchen)
  • Unsort from:
    • Ervius Kitchen’s folder format
    • osKitchen’s folder format
  • Merge missing file and folders from a donor directory (useful when the dump is missing files\folders) (SVN Directories are ignored (‘.svn’ and ‘_svn’))

You can follow the development in the application thread.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
