[TOOL] Edit boot.img

7 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hey. I've modded the old kitchen that rickywyatt posted here before (thank you). This one works and doesn't require any external program.

Install instructions:

All you need is to unzip the file to a folder and you are ready to go!

How to use:

* Place your boot.img in the same folder as you extracted the kitchen (windows or linux folder)

* Open "start" or run "start.sh" and it should start the program.

Just follow what you see on screen:

Windows:

Run "start.bat"

* Press 1 to decompile the boot.img

* replace the ramdisk.gz (if you want)

* replace the kernel (if you want)

* Press 2 and it will compile the boot.img again!

Linux:

open your terminal and do ./start.sh

* Press 1 to decompile the boot.img

* Press 2 to compile the ramdisk from the ramdisk folder or ramdisk.gz

* Press 3 to create an update.zip with the boot.img

you can press ctrl+c everytime to stop the script

Download:

Version 2.0 Size: 1,71 MB | md5:e1ae1f5f80a16ec5d71b56f598f9ee3b

I tried with 4 different boot.img's and the created boot.img is exactly the same size and content has the original... I can't reproduce your problem

are you using windows vista/7 and running this as admin? Maybe you have some security software that is deleting a file that he thinks it's malware... i don't know...

edit: you can't edit the ramdisk on windows. If you do that you currupt one system link (windows doesn't support that). i've edited the 1st post.

Updated the program. You can't edit ramdisk on windows... you can only list his content because windows doesn't suport systemlinks.

Also added a linux version. Enjoy

Super thanks! With your tool I finally changed my logo.bmp directly on the boot image. But on my Ubuntu 10.10, it's doesn't function. I did unpack and used manually. (Sorry by my english, I'm brazillian). One more time, thanks!
