    I have someone asking for system partitions in an attempt to unlock the boot loader or at least get a 2nd init recovery onto our phone, any idea in how to do this? I'm good with modifying the phone after someone else does all the nity grity lol.

    The entire partition? On a rooted phone, adb pull /system/*

    I have not idea, I was up at 3 am last night trying to pull partitions with tokenpoke to try to find a Loki system to unlock the bootloader, we tried

    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p0 of=/sdcard/part0.img

    But I got an error saying no directory found. We looked into it and we have no idea where they are located, it would have helped allot more if tokenpoke had the phone but he doesn't have one yet.

    Edit: forgot to mention we did this on Terminal Emulator

    Well I got the partitions, just not able to upload sadly, anyone have a way to upload? I could walk you through it, pm me if you do, this could help us with unlocking the bootloader, if anything, get us a 2nd init. Recovery.

    For future reference the problem was an unnoticed typo DX
    Should have been dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p1 of=/sdcard/part1.img
