Good find. I made the stupid mistake once to simply try to flash a updata.app for a (slightly) different device. It took me quite some time to restore the G300 back to normal. Be warned that your precious device may well end up in an expensive piece of plastic :unsure:

We have a single perl script that dumps the contents of update.apps.

Also, the stuff in that GitHub repo is probably for the old update.app format. Consider what we have to be "update.app V2".
