    Sounds good. It is actually rather easy.

    For the system pull, copy and paste the adb.exe into a new folder, cd into that folder in command prompt, then type

    Code (Text):
    1. adb pull /system
    For the boot.img, while still in command prompt type
    Code (Text):
    1. adb shell
    Then
    Code (Text):
    1. dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p? of=/sdcard/boot.img
    Where ? is the partition for the boot.img (If anyone knows it please let me know and I will update this post, thanks). There will then be a copy of the boot.img on your sdcard. Thank you so much for the help!

    Awesome! The only way is to upload them :( If you can zip it up in different folders and upload it that way it would be great. Or you can check out dropbox. You can get a free account and it has a lot of other cool features!

    I can give you an FTP acct to upload to and I can host it, if you want.

    I planned on doing a 2.3.5 AOSP, deodexed when I can get my hands on the device files. I can't ever get ADB working on my machine, so I have to wait for someone else to do a dump. :/

    What kind of problem are you having with adb? In Linux I have to do
    Code (Text):
    1.  sudo ./adb kill-server
    2. sudo ./adb start-server
    everytime I restart. Might give it a try.

    I'm using a VM box and I can't ever get it to recognize phones connected via USB. Admittedly, I haven't tried with the Spectrum, but it hasn't found any of the others I've tried to connect.

    *Edit* Actually, I'll give it a try for S's and giggles.

    Ah. Can one of you pull an extract from ADB for me? I can't get adb working on my vm box. If you need somewhere to upload the files, I can give you an ftp acct to my server.
