Colonel Zap - Stock Rom Dump

64 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

OK Guys,

Lets continue where we left off from The BlueMonte topic.

So Far we've got a clean dump from ColonelZap, but missing the boot image. Trying to root it without changing the stock image, with a view to further unlocking efforts.

Paul is taking a look, but not sure exactly where we are.

Tillaz/Colonel - can you do a quick overview of where we are?

Cheers guys, and thanks Paul

Pete

No root atm AFAIK, concerns about unclean superboot wiping files needed by the Devs.

He got the partial image relatively quickly, should be just a matter of time with the right help. It got a bit crazy in the wrong thread, but everyone is hoping that the stock unlocked Rom will be key to unlocking ours.

Hmm...

Someone pointed me in this direction... how on earth did he manage to dump the system but not the boot?

You should be able to boot a copy of clockwork mod using fastboot and then dump the boot partition that way...

Yeah, I was kinda wondering that. It seems CWM won't boot from Fastboot.

I wonder if the base address is different on his device perhaps, an 'adb shell cat /proc/iomem' should tell us. It'd be handy to know more about the device, where it came from, if it's retail etc...

Here are a couple of excerpts from the other thread:

Here's the good news:

K1849.png

And here's the bad news :(

Resized to 99% (was 659 x 319) - Click image to enlargeO2tgn.png

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

So, it THAT what I should do? You want me to do a nandroid backup by the instructions from Sebastian404?

Edit: No success :(

I connected the phone via ADB:

wOmb1.png

Quote

type 'adb-windows.exe reboot bootloader'

and your phone should reboot and stay at the android/SFR logo/

phone rebooted and is now recognized as:

6COj5.png

but all I get to see is the green Android, no SFR Logo?

Quote

type 'fastboot-windows.exe boot clockworkmod.img' and clockwork mod will boot...

Did that and from the adb command everythig looks fine:

sV73A.png

Quote

once there you can use clockwork mod to do a full nadroid backup

I WISH!!!! Nothing I can do but stare at my little green friend:

NtMVn.png

Any suggestions?

Of course it is and the ADB commands seem to work just fine

sV73A.png

But the PHONE simply isn't doing anything.

Vista :-)

6l79G.png

As soon I do fastboot the connection is lost, so when I re-enter the fastboot command the "waiting for device" makes sense. When I unplug the cable and press the Vol down button when the green Android shows up, I get into this "FTM" (<----factory mode???). I also tried this with Vol UP but that simply let the phone boot.

Edit: By the way, to get into MY recovery mode, I need to press home + vol UP and power. I tried that combination as well after the fastboot / unpluging, but of course it only took me into my recovery mode, not the clockwork one :(

Another edit: I also replaced my android drivers with the latest ones from the android sdk (as it was suggested before the post was edited)

Cololel's got an unlocked Skate from the UK...

Not quite right, I got it directly from China but I guess that doesn't make a difference ;)

Sorry for this off topic but VERY soon A LOT of unlocked Skates will be around, at least in Germany :lol:

Aldi does it again ;-)

That's approx. 172 GBP, not bad for an UNLOCKED phone, 4GB SD-card, car mount and Gopal Navigator included.

Patience young one...the dump in good time we shall receive!!!

Go for Bluemonte for now, properly good rom that's stable for everyday use (Tillaz, I think I should be on commission for recommending your rom!!tongue.gif)

Might want to keep an eye on this thread as well - http://android.modaco.com/topic/346953-help-factory-unlocked-zte-skate-shipped-with-235/ another stock Skate untouched by Orange hands!!

I don't know much about android, but I must say I will be very happy if unlock will come out of this

You are such experts!

Aldi offer is also good, but now OMC now costs 130 GBP, quite cheaper, of course many of us need unlock...

Kind regards.
