Default MS690ZV3 and MS690ZV4 BIN images

I have extracted the contents of the BIN files that LG uses to flash updates. Here is a list of the files:

amss.mbn
appsboot.mbn
blb
boot.img
cache
calbackup
efs2
fota_sto
fota_ua.mbn
mibib.mbn
oemsbl2
oemsbl.mbn
qcsbl.mbn
recovery.img
splash.img
system.img
userdata.img
web_dl

The .img files are the same images that have been posted here before, at least for 2.2. I'm not sure anyone has posted the images for 2.2.1 yet. I have no idea what the .mbn files are. The files without an extension are mostly empty and probably all useless.

Download then here:
2.2 image: MS690ZV3.zip
2.2.1 image: MS690ZV4.zip

The images were not in zip format. I zipped them myself after I extracted them from the bin.

I have been working on this for almost a week now. It wasn't too hard because the data is not compressed. It just took a lot of time examining the file with a hex editor, and then writing the program to chop it up and remove all the extra bits.

I am still working on the program to unpack the image. I am beginning to thing that only boot.img and recovery.img were extracted correctly. It appears that all of the oob areas are missing from system.img.

I just tested the boot and system image. The boots good but the system image is a no go. Is there a way to repack the bin files? If so then it would be very easy to root 2.2.1 without having to downgrade

Was it flashed on? I tried flashing it on my g1 to pull the files but ran out of memory...

If anyone would like to try it, let me know.

No I used unyaffs to test the system image. If theres anything wrong with a system image unyaffs won't work. For the boot image I just used split_bootimg.pl and everything worked good. So I have to assume that it's good. I'm not gonna flash it on my hero unless I end up making a rom for it. I'm sure one of the many beta testers won't mind testing the boot image

There is no way to repack the bin file yet.

I tried modifying the file with a hex editor, and it flashed back just fine. I didn't change much. I added some comments to a text file, just to see if it could be done. At least we know there is no checksum that prevents flashing a modified image.

I don't know if it can be done but is there any way to change a values inside the bootimg while still in the bin file?
I ask because inside the ramdisk of the boot image there's a file called buildprop. Inside the defaultprop there's a line that says ro.secure=1. If you have ro.secure=1 changed to ro.secure=0 you now have root.... basically. You would be able to remount the device and push su binary and chmod it's permissions.

I can change some things in the system image. The boot image is a lot harder to modify because because it is gzipped.
