[Q] Create Custom ODIN Images for Backup/Restore

1 post in this topic


I found a solution thanks anyway, i also made some customizzation starting from the stock Samsung Firmware XWKE7 deodexing framework and apps and i themed everythings!

Hi guys, i am trying to make my custom backup, after i did some changes on the framework, app, configs...

Now the problem is that i can't figure out how to create a valid Odin image.

Here is what i did so far..

From my phone terminal emulator i typed:


dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p9 of=/sdcard/factoryfs.img bs=4096

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5 of=/sdcard/zImage bs=4096
I moved these two file on my PC and, as i am running Windows OS, I used Cygwin in order to create a tar file as following:
tar -H ustar -c factoryfs.img zImage > my_temp_package.tar

md5sum -t my_temp_package.tar >> my_temp_package.tar

mv my_temp_package.tar my_temp_package.tar.md5
At this point, when i flash this through Odin by selecting my_temp_package.tar.md5 in PDA, it fails and i got the following output:
<OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully..

<OSM> Leave CS..

<ID:0/011> Odin v.3 engine (ID:11)..

<ID:0/011> File analysis..

<ID:0/011> SetupConnection..

<ID:0/011> Initialzation..

<ID:0/011> Get PIT for mapping..

<ID:0/011> Firmware update start..

<ID:0/011> factoryfs.rfs

<ID:0/011> NAND Write Start!! 


<ID:0/011> Complete(Write) operation failed.

<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)

This is driving my crazy!!! :D

Any clues?
