Quote: "what to do with menu type "main menu" & "sub menu" option?"
The 'Main menu' is the menu that file 'loader.bin' launch when EasyBoot starts up. To simplify we in this tutorial name 'Main Menu' as 'start.ezb' You can open your 'Main menu' (whatever its name is) and use 'Save as' and give 'Main Menu' the new name 'start' You then have a copy of your original 'Main Menu' with the name 'start.ezb' in folder EZBOOT Note: as soon you use 'Save' or 'Save As' that particular menu is saved in EasyBoot as the menu that is the 'start-point' (loader.bin is starting exactly that menu when you pushed to 'Save' or 'Save As') So make sure you open 'Main Menu' and again push to 'Save' to set 'loader.bin' to launch the 'Main Menu' and not some 'sub menu'
Okay.... Let's manipulate the copy (start.ezb) of the original 'Main Menu' that you created above
1. Open 'start.ezb' (push 'Open' in EasyBoot and scroll to folder EZBOOT and click to 'start.ezb' (or open folder EZBOOT in Windows Explorer and double-click to 'start.ezb'
2. You can now manipulate 'start.ezb' menu (new menu entries with new commands etcetera)
3. You now create a menu command: run start.ezb to 'start.ezb'
4. Now in 'Menu Type' tick to 'Sub Menu'
5. Push on 'Save as' and give menu (which now is an sub menu) a new name (I used 'format' as name)
6. Again open your 'Main Menu' which was 'start.ezb' and create a new menu entry with menu command: run format.ezb
7. Push to 'Save' ('start.ezb' menu is now the 'Main Menu' and is launched by 'loader.bin'
You can now jump (run format.ezb) from main menu 'start.ezb' to the 'sub menu' (format.ezb) and from sub menu 'format.ezb' jump (run start.ezb) back to the main menu 'start.ezb'
You can of course change backgrounds etcetera and create up to 9 menu command entries in any menu. EasyBoot also support 'User-Defined accelerated keys' (such as 0-9, a-z) to directly select menu item.
You can have up to 31 different menus (but only one 'Main Menu' (in this example 'start.ezb')
This means you can jump around between a lot of different sub menus and at any time jump back to the 'Main Menu' Note: you can of course launch anything from a sub menu - even directly boot to the 'harddisk' or 'shutdown' or 'reboot' or whatever.
Above tells us that EasyBoot is extremely powerful as you can build really complicated menu structures
Hope above was to some help
