How to /dump/ the ROM image ?

77 posts in this topic

Hi ! :)

I have a Orange FR HTC Desire who is waiting for the generic'ifying process. But the Stock ROM for this operator is not available, so I want to dump my Stock ROM in order to have a backup when needed. (and I will host the ROM)

So, how ?

I searched, and I found a tool called "Nandroid", but you need to have root, do you ? And if I root my device, the stock ROM will be replaced...

Is there no solution to dump the ROM without root access ? Can't the /system partition be readable in no-superuser mode ?

Thank you anyway ;)

PS: I want to do a dump, not a backup: I don't need write access.

Install busybox to /data/local then tar the /system directory to a file on the SD card.

Currently tar'ing ! Thanks a lot ! :)

Now that I'll have my .tar, how can I create the .img ?

EDIT: The tar process exited before the end due to "previous errors". I'm trying again.

I did with the adb shell:

cd /sdcard

ls // to make sure it's correctly here

chmod 755 /data/local/busybox // to make it executable

/data/local/busybox tar cvf dump.tar /system

EDIT2: Same thing the second time ! "tar: error exit delayed from previous errors"

EDIT3: Just did a /data/local/busybox du -s /system and it was 239200, my tar is 239540. Allright then ?

So...

Is it enough to have the /system partition ? If yes, how do I convert the system.tar to system.img in order to execute with the RUU if needed ?

If not, which partitions do I have to dump ? How do I obtain the splash image if needed ?

Thank you :)

You will need:

1. Linux OS

2. Yaffs2 tool

3. your System folder

The Code:

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

# ./mkfs.yaffs2 system /system.img

# exit

Please correct me if i'm wrong... :)

mkfs.yaffs2.x86.tar.gz

The /system partition is enough. The 'exiting with errors' is fine, if you watch it go through you'll see there are some files it can't read (not real files), so don't worry.

Rather than making it into a .img, you're better off making it into an 'update zip' for flashing via the custom recovery.

I think you're right.

So Minishlink, do you need help to create an update.zip ?

Here is the update.zip:

http://louislagrange.free.fr/dl.php?f=Andr...FR_StockRom.zip (pass: "desire")

This archive has to be extracted to give the "update.zip". :)

It doesn't have a META-INF folder nor a boot.img inside, does it matter ? Or the recovery tool just replace what's inside the archive ?

U need the META folder which includes the update script! Without u cant use the update.zip.....just grab it from another rom and delete all lines and let the first 2 there and the last! Hope this will help you

OT:

Cant we dump ALL Partitions of the Desire and flash them on a bricked device, to solve the USB Port problem?
