    Hi, i have flashed 3 images on my rooted desire:

    • the original backed up image
    • splitted & recreated boot image with the same kernel and initrd as the original boot img
    • boot image extracted from update-cm-6.0.0-N1-RC3-signed

    Only the first image boots up, the other 2 do not even start on adb logcat. I have to reflash the original to boot up. This is what I do in recovery:

    Code (Text):
    1. # ./split_bootimg.pl  boot.img
    2. # mkbootimg  --kernel boot.img-kernel --ramdisk boot.img-ramdisk.gz --cmdline 'no_console_suspend=1' -o newboot.img
    3. # adb push newboot.img /sdcard
    4. # cat /dev/zero > /dev/mtd/mtd2
    5. # flash_image boot /sdcard/newboot.img
    this does not boot up. If I flash the original boot.img however, it goes up.
