I'm releasing a revised version of the nicOS-Remaster Options tool.

Change log:

1. The previous version (as is the case with Puppy's builtin tool) copies the /root, /etc and /var directories to /tmp of the running file system. The result is that RAM or savefile space will be occupied by the contents of these folders even if you have chosen another working partition. This revised version addresses this issue. Your chosen partition will now handle the full remastered process (unless you choose the RAM option). Note that you can choose a partition with a non-linux filesystem (like ntfs and FAT) as your working partition.
2. The compression options have changed.
3. Some other minor stuff.

Attached to first post.

I've reworked the ISO section of the Revised Options version to make it more compact and user friendly. Try it instead. Added to opening post, replacing the previous one. The whole remaster process now comprises of 5 (4 if you only remaster the base sfs) steps, ie:
1. Choose your working partition
2. Choose to make an iso or only remaster the base sfs
3. Choose to copy files from the distribution's live-cd or iso (only for iso making).
4. Choose the compression method
5. Choose to save hardware settings (customise) or not and opportunity to make final changes.

I've made a few very small changes. This will be the last upload (well, until something significantly changes in future). Attached to first post.

I'm releasing a streamlined version of the Options-tool of the remaster suite. This script does not replace the options tool in the official nicOS-Remaster-Suite but may be useful to some. Note: This one is different from and replaces the version I posted yesterday. I'll stick with this one.

Attached to first post.

I'm updating the streamlined options version. Replacing previous version, attached to first post. Changes:
1. User input screens reduced to only two.
2. Compression settings set to default xz compression.
3. Changes to alsa settings were not saved when choosing to customise. Fixed.
4. Some changes to text in dialog boxes.

Another update of the streamlined version basically adapted because of the "new" trend to have a seperate (extra) fdrv for firmware. Changes:

1. The remaster script will produce only one remastered file, the new base sfs, which will EXCLUDE any contents of an existing zdrv and fdrv. This means that the existing zdrv and fdrv will remain untouched. Previously, any firmware in the zdrv and fdrv were added to the new base sfs. The zdrv (if it contained some firmware) was also reconstructed and a new one created, this will not happen anymore.
2. Fixed the alsa settings store issue.
3. User dialogs updated.

Added to opening post, replacing the previous effort.

I've decided to publish only one official script to replace all previous work on this. I feel this satisfies my objectives of a user friendly alternative to puppy's builtin script. Attached to opening post.

I agree with Rockedge.

I used the NicOS-remastering tool for the first time the other day and was very pleased with the result.

Thanks for the effort you have put into it.
