I've been attempting to do this to have my own backup.

 

Problem is, I don't know how to build it back into a signed update package that recovery mode would recognize and auto-install.  Stumped.

 

To create your own backup of all system files, connect the device thru ADB (make sure it has root access, watch for Superuser prompt) and do "adb pull /system"

 

This may create permission problems if you're doing it in Windows -- suggest linux.

 

To send them back, adb push /system

 

^---Haven't attempted the latter yet; did 'pull' from Windows and didn't want to brick myself.

 

Has anyone politely requested the original firmware dump from Arnova?

Admin,
I have question on dump files. I have extracted 4 files from the G3. boot.img, bootloader.img, recovery.img and system.taz. They all 4 total 203MG, I extracted the system.taz with winzip and it IS a lot of my files including my apks. QUESTION..... how to I convert these to a file for Live suite to Use? If these files are correct, I will have to do a restore and extract them again as from what I can tell this is an exact copy of my files in the system.taz, including all my stuff and probably some of my personal information. Can you help me with this, maybe we can get a restore image for those that need it.Isa

I believe the data partition is the only one with personal information, please correct me if I am wrong.

 

To create a image.img file that is compatible with livesuite you will need to use a10_flash_kitchen_v2, since you already have the images it should be pretty easy

 

Here is the kitchen zip

http://android.sztupy.hu/dl/a10/a10_...kitchen_v1.zip

 

(Quoted from xda-dev) link at the bottom

If you have initialized the kitchen, you have to copy the four files from linux (system.img, root.img, recovery.img and bImage) inside the _input directory. You will also need to rename the .img files to .fex (so they should be system.fex, root.fex, recovery.fex).

If you are done with this, then run create_image.bat. It will create an output.img file, that can be flashed to the device using LiveSuite.

OK well, with other restore imgs, it restores all your apks and gmail with your user name and password ...just like it is when you make the image. I don't have a BImage file. I have kitchen v2 for ICS , put the 4 files that I have in input with each changed to .fex ....ran it and got 3 files boot,bootloader,recovery each about 4kb, so know that's not right. Tried several times same results. Was hoping for info on BImage file. I read instructions for getting it but didn't understand it. Plus used another dump.bat to extract those images as couldn't get the ones to work in the thread you posted.

I believe bimage is the bootloader image file, which you have just rename to whatever it says to rename to, but be very careful, make sure I am correct first as this could brick your device if you overwrite your bootloader image with something other than a bootloader (I have done this to a polaroid PMID702c tablet myself and had to return it, it wouldn't even turn on after I screwed up the bootloader so it makes it impossible to fix without screwing with the hardware.

 

Make sure you are running the create_image.bat your files have to be in the input directory and renamed from .img to .fex, the output should only be one .img file which is the livesuite file you want.

ALD3 - what method did you use to extract those .img files?  I'm stumped there.

Hey ninjaduck,
Not at home right now, but I used a 2dump.bat program that I found. It extracted all and seems to work well. Problem is the 4 files being boot.img, bootloader.img, recovery.img and system.taz. I couldn't get the other bat too work and haven't used adb much in a long time, plus wasn't that good at it. I'm going to try the other bat again and been reading up on adb dump. Just seems if I could cook these files to work on livesuite and testmit on mine, I could help those having boot problems and software problems. Any thoughts?????

Nope.  Believe I'm at the same position you are now.  Firmware dumped, now needs to be reassembled....

Had an annoying error trying to pull bootfs -

 

"pull /bootfs/??? boot.axf -> ??? boot.axf"

at the end of the bootfs steps yields "can't create ??? boot.axf no such file or directory" (syntax error on file name)

 

Did you come across this error?  Steps to resolve?

 

On a side note I feel like we're making real progress on getting a backup ROM prepared.  One of us is going to stumble on it in the next few days, then it's only time until CM9 🙂

I couldn't ever get their extract.bat to work, or pull/ bootfs . That's why I used another 2dump.bat, it worked but don't know how to assemble for live suite. Do you know the commands for abd? I have tried several and they don't work either

Am not aware of one.  All I know of is adb backup, which I don't believe backs up full system (just apps/data)
