    Default [QUESTION] Attention FW Cookers. How to preinstall apps within FW?

    I've asked this same question many times, but perhaps it's worth its own topic.

    I want to know how one can preinstall an app into the cooked FW? Naughtypope did this by putting Maps 3.03, Ovi Store and Rompatcher+ into Z:
    I can't seem to reproduce this. Opened up the sis files with Siscontent, but the files inside don't seem to make much sense. For instance, the contents and folder structure within Maps3.03.sis doesn't match that of naughtypope's rofs2 file. I tried to copy the contents of the sis file into the corresponding folders of my ROM, but after flashing my phone just bricked.

    Maps sis contained folders like "c_private..." and so on. I copied the contents of those folders into the corresponding folder in the rofs2 (the prefix "c_" is of course excluded). There were other files I couldn't find out where the hell I should put them. Files such as "License_Manager.pkg". Where the flying f**k should those be copied?


    If people could post some tutorials regarding preinstalling some of the most usual apps, I think more folks than I alone would be very grateful.

    I did it with Youtube client, it works like a charm. You simply have to copy the content following these rules:

    - c_resource, c_private, c_sys ---> resource, private, sys in rofs2
    - c_sys contains folder bin, copy that content also in sys/hash (you have to create that folder)

    Example:

    example.sis content

    -c_resource
    -file 1,2,3
    -c_private
    -folder 00000000
    -file 1,2,3
    -c_sys
    -bin
    -file 1,2,3


    >>>


    -rofs2
    -resource
    -file 1,2,3
    -private
    -folder 0000000
    -file 1,2,3
    -sys
    -bin
    -file 1,2,3
    -hash
    -file 1,2,3

    Thanks! Will try it.
    What about the .pkg files in the sis folder root?

    And another thing: Does this mod work also if placed in rofs?:

    Any ideas on themes, how to have them installed with firmware?

    .pkgs are not necessary. They are used to pack the .sis.

    Hmm. What the hell am I doing wrong?

    There's a folder called "License_Manager" inside the Maps sis. It also contains "c_private" etc. folders. Did you also copy those to the same locations?


    EDIT: OK. I am now doing them one at a time. Tried only Ovi Store first. It worked! The trouble is with Maps then.
