Creating a backup

5 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi guys,

I got my two daughters Andypads for xmas. The first one came with the android market, the second didn't......No amount of installing various APKs will get the market working on Pad #2.....It either FCs before starting or FCs when you attempt to download....

My idea is to try and clone the 1st pads image and then restore it back onto the second pad.....What tools would I require to do this and do you guys think it would work? Ideally I would like to be able to make /system rw so that I could install SU.......Any thoughts?

Many thanks in advance!

In theory, the only way you can backup your image is by dumping mtd from backup.img, which contains the latest ROM that has been flashed onto it. Make sure SD is plugged in.

This can be done using rkdump by fun_: http://files.androta...ump_android.zip

push the rkdump binary onto your /data/ partition (adb push rkdump /data/), then, adb shell:

/data/rkdump /dev/block/mtdblock5 /sdcard/update.img

Next, you should be able to unpack the update.img using APKTool.exe by Wendal and flash using e.g. RKAndroidTool.

Your other option is to flash one of the ROM's released in this forum, as they all contain MarketPlace (at least, mine does)

Hope this helps you further :)

I'm not sure, but you can always try. I'm sure it won't brick your device, the worst thing that can happen is that you have to reflash that previous update.img, which you've dumped before, to undo the changes. When you try it, let me know how it went :)
