    Do I need to download the latest system.img? or do I extract it from my phone?

    Or can I use one of my downloaded roms to get system.img?

    (Wanting to mess around with custom rom build, removing unneccesary apps/such)

    do a nandroid back up of your 100% stock rom and pull the nandroid folder out. it will give you boot.img system.img cache.img and data.img all you need is the 1st two.
