How to /dump/ the ROM image ?

I'm slightly confused. This post by Paul (about rooting the HTC Desire) says that "This process will wipe your device and there is currently no option to backup your device ROM before you start". Is there some caveat that I am missing or, can we use the method described here to backup the original ROM?

i read the unrooting thread, seems there's some problems on desire with hboot 0.80, im still very blur

actually i wanna backup my stock rom in case anything happen, i can revert back & send for svc.

btw, im using 1.19.707.7, the only asia stock rom ruu i found close enough is 1.19.707.6, kinda different.

believe the slight ver difference could be due to my mobile provider

So I just dumped my /system folder as explained above, untared it and made a META-INF folder and used this update-script: http://android.modaco.com/index.php?s=&amp...t&p=1280676 and finally I signed it by following the mentioned guide.

Is this really everything needed to get my phone back to stock if I flashed a custom ROM before? No boot.img? No need to dump /data ?

Hey I have a dump from my 1.20 Taiwan ROM (CHT). Can you help me with it? Thanks.

here's the link:

http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=7fbbcf2...3d3b27b45453728

By the way, I've noticed that the HTC_CIME inside actually works WITH multitouch. However, when I extract it out and install it by itself , it won't show up as an input device...

I don't suppose anyone has the official vodafone uk rom? Or knows where I can download from?

When FroYo is released for the Desire, will Vodafone release a new rom? I am getting a bit nervy that I am not going to be able to put it on my phone because its rooted and flashed with the HTC generic rom.

The nerves have set in because I can't do the recent update. It keeps failing with a red ?. I tried a couple of times, the second time my phone kept rebooting at the HTC screen. It rebooted about 20 times before it booted properly.

Any advice please?

Thanks

Daz

Is dumping the /system folder really enough to backup before rooting/flashing/generic'ing? I am new to this but it just doesn't seem right that only the system folder would be needed.

Edit: I am dumping the T-Mobile Czech Republic ROM which, I presume, nobody here has (or is it the same one as T-Mobile UK?).

Dumping the Orange UK ROM doesn't look too difficult, though digitally signing it looks like a bind. Is anyone else trying to dump it? I might have a go but I feel overwhelmed still. :lol:

Yeah I am trying to do it. I have made a dump of the system and found out some info on the boot.img. Look at this thread for the info I got. As you can expect I am now stuck as I could put it together but I have no guarentee it will work. So if you have any help/input then we might be able to get this sorted! I have pulled the config.gz from my phone, now I just need to try and find out whether the OrangeFR uses the same kernel as the UK. If I am honest I'd be suprised if the french version didn't use the same. Then I was just going to use the Meta-inf from the French rom as I have had a look and it seems like it uses pretty much identical pieces of software.

Tried & failed Orange UK ROM Dump

I thought I would give this a try and see if it worked, my fiancee has the same HTC Desire as I do with the same Orange software, so I thought I would give it a go, but it didnt work!

The following is what I did & the guides I followed (many thanks to the people listed for their guides!!)

Followed Minishlink's guide as below:

1) Install Android SDK or simply adb

2) Download busybox for Android

3) Launch Windows console (cmd) and go to the directory where busybox is with the "cd path/to/the/file" command.

4) "adb devices" <- Is your device detected ? If not, install HTC Sync // Of course, before you have to plug your device in... (Sync mode I guess)

5) "adb push busybox /data/local/busybox

6) "adb shell"

7) "cd /sdcard/"

8) "chmod 755 /data/local/busybox" (something like that)

9) "/data/local/busybox tar cvf dump.tar /system"

10) When it's finished, you will have a normal error like 'tar: error exit delayed from previous errors'.

Then I followed moodi's guide below:

You will need:

1. Linux OS (I used Cygwin's Linux for Windows package instead of a Linux OS for this)

2. Yaffs2 tool

3. your System folder (or if you dont have this, extract the dump.tar file, for this I placed this into Cygwin's folder, directory tree: 'C:\cygwin\home\my-user-name/dump')

CODE

cd /where/your/dumped/system/folder/is

./mkfs.yaffs2 system /system.img

exit

My Own Steps:

1) Take the Boot.img from the latest RRU (extracted the testrru.exe file and boot.img is in the '\testrru\rom' directory.

2) Take both the Boot,.img & system.img and dropped them into my Cygwin kitchen, run Cygwin and then run ./menu

3) Choose option 1 (Set up working folder from ROM)

4) Then Option 3 (boot.img & system.img (e.g. from a shipped ROM or Nandroid backup)

5) Then I just used option 99 (Build ROM from working folder

6) Once completed, copied the produced ZIP file to memory card & flashed through recovery

After Formatting SYSTEM then copying files I got errors:

E: Can't symlink /system/bin/dumpcrash

E: Failure at line 5:

symlink dumpstate SYSTEM:bin/dumpcrash

Installation Aborted.

I even tried to replace the system.img into the '\testrru\rom' directory and run ARUWizard.exe but this didnt work either!

As I said before, a big thanks to the guys (and gals?) that made the above guides, if anybody knows what went wrong, please share!!

Arty.
