ive made a kitchen to edit boot.img

this is for windows only you need ActivePerl

download it here

extract my kitchen to your c drive


(1) then click 1.bat to extract the boot.img-ramdisk.gz , boot.img-kernel Ramdisk folder

then you can edit the ramdisk folder like e.g change startup logo , edit init.rc

(2) then click 2.bat to rebuild the boot.img

(3) put your phone into fastboot then click 3.bat to flash the boot.img

hope this helps people out

hey ricky i just wanted to ask you, im having errors relating cygwin since i didnt have it installed when repacking my boot.img, what packages should i have installed on windows?

it says "application failed to start because cygwin1.dll was not found. reinstalling the app may fix this problem"

not sure what to do, i have cygwin installed

edit: nevermind i fixed it :mellow:

I extracted a boot.img & after without modify i made a boot.img from extracted files.

New boot.img not same with original, I don't get any error message.

I flash images original is working, new isn't working.

Can somebody help me?


I made 4.bat:

cd c:\Workfolder

mkdir tools\flash\

mkbootimg --kernel boot.img-kernel --ramdisk boot.img-ramdisk.gz -o C:\Workfolder\tools\Flash\boot.img --base 0x02e00000

I unpack with your 1.bat & repack with 4.bat the problem is same.
