Hi All,

After a fair bit of trial and error (and reading) I have got a clean dump of the i910 rom, DSK1 part 00,01,02 and DSK2 part00.

Here are the instructions:

c:\itsutils>pdocread -w -d dsk1: -b 0x800 -p part00 -t
real nr of sectors: 691 - 1.35Mbyte, 0x159800

c:\itsutils>pdocread -w -d dsk1: -b 0x800 -p part01 -t
real nr of sectors: 1260 - 2.46Mbyte, 0x276000

c:\itsutils>pdocread -w -d dsk1: -b 0x800 -p part02 -t
real nr of sectors: 64953 - 126.86Mbyte, 0x7edc800

c:\itsutils>pdocread -w -d dsk2: -b 0x800 -p part00 -t
real nr of sectors: 45168 - 88.22Mbyte, 0x5838000

Now we have our offsets, the read is next:

c:\itsutils>pdocread -w -d dsk1: -b 0x800 -p part00 0 0x159800 part00.raw
CopyTFFSToFile(0x0, 0x159800, part00.raw)

c:\itsutils>pdocread -w -d DSK1: -b 0x800 -p Part01 0 0x276000 part01.raw
CopyTFFSToFile(0x0, 0x276000, part01.raw)

c:\itsutils>pdocread -w -d DSK1: -b 0x800 -p Part02 0 0x7edc800 part02.raw
CopyTFFSToFile(0x0, 0x7edc800, part02.raw)

c:\itsutils>pdocread -w -d DSK2: -b 0x800 -p Part00 0 0x5838000 dsk2part00.raw


The last two take a while (5 minutes or so each) as they are larger files. Make sure you use your own offset values if they differ from mine (see part 1).

I'm uploading my rom at the moment, good luck to all the people who want to play with it, I'm looking forward to a better, updated rom.

Now I have to learn about ROM building - need a WinMo 6.5 ROM for the i910.

I think you can replace all this by:

pdocread -l

it will list all the above auto.

c:\itsutils>pdocread -w -d DSK2: -b 0x800 -p Part00 0 0x5838000 dsk2part00.raw

this one is useless IMHO, should be your actual installed WM os, not the installer.


The point is, what do you do next to flash it back ?

pdocread -l doesn't work properly to give exact offsets for me at least, I had to specify the options to make it work. The only reason I copied the DSK2 partition was in case anyone wanted it for comparison's sake.

Hey guys how's it going? Has anyone had any luck flashing back a Samsung i910 rom?

I've been playing around with mine and I guess I played with it too much. The phone is still functional but I noticed something odd about the Hard Reset. The out of the box phone came pre-installed with two or 3 programs outside of the defaults. I don't remember the other 2 but I know that ".net Compact Framework v2" was installed. When you do a hard reset, it restores the phone without this program. When I go to reinstall it using the download from the microsoft site it tells me that I "already have that version installed". However, when I try to install certain programs that use the .net Framework they no longer work. I got into the phone's registry and found that the Hard restore adds ".net Compact Framework v2" records to the registry without actually installing the program. I removed the registry traces of .net CF v2 so that I could reinstall it. And viola! it worked. However, my programs still don't work right.

I guess essentially, my phone no longer works the same way as it did when it was first out of the box. It would be great to be able to flash the rom to an original out of the box state because the Hard Reset clearly does not cut it.

I LOVE READING THESE FORUMS!

I was a hacker back in the C=64 and C=128 days, and found that I was fairly good at it...way bacj when. I kinda got out of it when went to college.

I have an i910 (VZW) and after having a T-MO MDA for 2+ years and allthe ROMS which were available for it I am hoping that someday there will be as many custom ROMs for the OMNIA.

I mean, do these SW and HW manufacturers not realize that there are 1000's of people out there that get no better joy than to rip apart a ROM or hardware product, make it different and then share their results with the rest of the world. Why not just GIVE out the steps and ROMs in the first place. To quote a line from some movie I once saw "It give me no greater joy to destroy in an instance, what took someone a lifetime to create." Feel that makes a profound statement in light of the WM and other PPC hackers/builders out there. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK GUYS.

I have a couple of questions if someone would like to answer them:

1) I would be willing to try the ROM or ROMs built for the OMNIA i910, but I would like a sure fire way of backing up my OMNIA so that if need be, I could put it back to its "true" OOB state. How is this done?

2) I would like to try my hand at ROM COOKING, and did a great deal of reading in the MDA (HTC forums) when I had that phone. I think that I would like to try may hand at it. How would one get all the needed tools to start a kitchen?

I would consider hosting a server at my home with approx 1TB of storage for people to place their ROMs, tools, patches, etc. Would anyone be interested in such a venture?

Looking forward to a new hobby - creation through destruction. :excl:

We've been talking about it here, since there is a leaked rom. I've started cooking a bit, and can help others out if they need it.

Hey BH, I'm right there with you. I would love to test out more roms for the i910 if only I could find a way to restore mine to an original state. I just got my phone last week but I've been so inspired by what people have done with the i900 I've decided to host my own site dedicated to the i910. The site is http://www.omniai910.com. I'm going to begin loading it up with any and every i910 specific tools, software and tips I can find. I may even try out some roms. I'm still in the 30 day period so I may just say f*ck it, if I brick it I'll just swap it out for a new one.

Can Anyone post the stock .img file that VZW ships their i910 devices with? I need to send mine back to Verizon and would prefer not to have it sent back with Wozzers rom installed. Think it may raise a red flag, if anyone could I would aprreciate it! If not, maybe someone could explain how I can get the .img file off this stock omnia they sent me??
