    Hi,

    I have done several Nandroid backups during Installation of Froyo Nightly build. complete clean phone, phone with main settings adjusted, phone with applications, etc.

    All well and fine, but, unorganized as I am, I don't know anymore which is which. I believe that, If I can see a lsit of the files in each .img file, I could figure it out. How do I look into those files?


    The answer to that question, at least for the data.img and system.img files, is a small tool called unyaffs. A compiled binary for windows of this file is available at http://www.megaupload.com/?d=XMGZSYOM

    Put the unyaffs.exe and the file.img files in a new folder, open up a terminal window (windows-run-cmd), navigate to the folder where the files are and type: unyaffs file.img.
    All the files of the image are than extracted to the folder you are in.

    Hope this helps other people.

    Cheers,
    bresslau
