Default LG TOT Extractor

Well, there's this guy on XDA who has figured out how to extract bin and tot files. The structure of the tots and bins are different for each phone. But I got the information for xonar_ to add support for this phone and the tool will now extract tots for:

MS770
LW770
MS870
VS870

Thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1879915

Compiled exe for windows: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=39745676&postcount=127

Compiled Linux script: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=39761727&postcount=130

How to use:
Open cmd or terminal
type
Code:
Binextractor -ebh "file name"
Binextractor -extract "file name"
y
y
That's it. Just wait and all the partitions will extract.
To open system.img either mount it with linux or use ext2explore for windows.

Thanks to:
xonar_ (for making this and providing the source to compile)
interloper (for linux version)

Wait!!!!!!!!!! I'm not done....continued on post 2. You must be wondering how to get the tot file...right?

Ok, you must have the firmware for the phone: (Questions on Updates/Update Releases Here) Official Motion 4G 10c/d/e/f Firmware
Or look for firmware for intended device you are trying to extract.

Convert the cab file to KDZ by following directions in this thread:
http://androidforums.com/motion-4g-all-things-root/610609-guide-unbrick-lg-motion-unroot-getting-1-5ghz-kdz.html

If already a KDZ, then leave it as KDZ.

Download this (Windows only, there's no source )
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1566532

Code:
LGextract -kdz "filename"
You should now have a tot. Enjoy

(I am asking navossoc about a Linux version.)

Thanks to navossoc (for LG kdz extractor tool)

I believe the LGextract.exe program also works with WINE on Linux. I've used it before.

Well... that is nifty....

Question.... will this help us be able to flash over something without a locked boot loader? (I'm asking because someone else is going to real fast...so I figured I'd cut to the chase)

It only extracts, not compiles.

Same as a bin. It contains the firmware that is flashed on our LG phones.

I can honestly say I'm not a fan, but that is funny.
