after fighting with adb on win7 for 2 days...i installed the SDK and google drivers...the driver provided above says it did not contain information for my hardware..on both win7 and xp..the google driver installed fine on xp but im just getting "device offline" from adb (unlike device not found) on win7...
so xp..adb connecting fine...i try the steps above..i cant get rkdump to the data folder even tho im rooted with z4mod..so i pushed it straight to /flash/ (2gb free on the 4gb pad!)..next i run cat..get whats show above..and move on to actually dumping..so running rkdump from flash..oops no execute perms!..so hunt around with a esfile explorer in root mod and found a folder that had wr-x perms..i copied rkdump to this folder /data/app-private/ and then set execute permissions on rkdump in that folder..i can now run rkdump from adb...and make a dump finally!
so what i want to know now is...do i need to dump all the partitions? (ive got boot, kernel, recovery,system and backup)..
what do i now do with my update.img? (backup) ..
and how can i get into it to add and change things?..
