    Could someone please post a system dump from this phone? There is probably an option in recovery called "backup /system." We are trying to port ics to the Pantech breakout and this phone's ROM seems the most promising.

    If you boot into recovery, is there an option to "Backup /system"? That would be a useful start. And I am talking with one of the devs on the Pantech breakout forums about how to port cwm recovery to your phone, which I think would be the best way to root it. I will get back to you once i've heard back.

    When I boot into recovery there isn't a backup option there is
    Reboot system
    Apply zip from external storage
    Wipe data/cache
    Apply update from cache
    Root
    Those are the only ones I will try to put A screen shot up.

    If you connect through adb, try the command:
    Code (Text):
    1. adb pull /system
    It should pull the system folder to the directory that the adb command is in.

    Here's a system dump of my Marauder. I hope this is going toward rooting the actual phone and not just the Breakout. I'm itching to root this thing.

    Thanks. I'm doing some research for my own benefit and my hope is that I'll be able to help you all too :). Unfortunately I don't own a marauder, so I probably would need some Guinea pigs if I can figure this out.

    Hey how where you able to do a system dump ratso. Every time I did it it either froze up or did nothing.

    Can you get into fastboot on the marauder?

    #terabyte128: The Marauder really only has two hard keys on the case -- the power button and the volume rocker. The only combination at boot up that seems to get a response is POWER + VOLUME-DOWN, which takes me to the little android in repose with his case open and a trianglar yellow warning sign. A push the buttons again and get the stock recovery mentioned by greyishere earlier. Could "Apply update from cache" work as a place to load CWM or a rooted img file?

    #greyishere: I read your problems on the PC end so opted to use the ADB tools for Mac instead. From the Unix prompt, I used terabyte128's push command that dumped the system, which I then zipped up.

    I should mention that the Marauder has a slide-out, five-row keyboard. Could any combination of these buttons be pushed at boot-up to initiate a fastboot?

    Stupid me. :hmmmm2: The Android screen IS the Fastboot. I guess I was expecting some sort of header or something. I imagine the warning sign disappears if I'm hooked up via usb.

    In that case you could try
    Code (Text):
    1. adb reboot bootloader
    to get into Fastboot. I don't know if Pantech's locked this one up more though.

    The warning sign screen is recovery, not fastboot.

    Fastboot is volume up +volume down + power . It will bring you too a warning screen then do do as the instructions say to get into fastboot, pdl mode or reboot

    Thanks guys. Some ignorance of the android terminology on my part. The fastboot comes up -- a black screen with the fastboot header.

    Is this a possible way for me to flash the CWM, perhaps?

    That's where you would flash them, yes. Unfortunately I don't know the specifics of flashing recoveries and whatnot at the moment, but this is what I have found so far:

    You *might* be able to do this and have it work:

    1. In adb shell, type:
    Code (Text):
    1. $ cat /proc/mtd
    Make a note of what "recovery" is mounted to.

    2. Type
    Code (Text):
    1. adb pull /dev/mtd/mtd2
    ,
    replacing "mtd2" with whatever "recovery" is mounted to.

    3. There will be a file called "mtd2" or whatever you pulled, rename it to recovery.img (to make it easy to remember).

    4. Go to Recovery Builder and upload your recovery.img. See if they can use it to build a new clockworkmod recovery for your phone.

    5. I'm not sure about the specifics of flashing recoveries, let me know if you get this far

    There's no mtd directory, but recovery seems to be mounted at
    /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery

    In any case, I can't pull anything from /dev/ since permission is denied. And, since I'm not rooted, I can't activate su. A catch-22.

    Dang. I though that might happen. There must be some other exploit for installing a recovery, I am looking through the system files on my phone to see where the backup recovery.img might be located.

    I know I'm bumping an old thread here, but does anyone have a lead on the stock Marauder ROM?

    I need to reflash mine and can't find one anywhere...

    EDIT: Turns out Verizon is just going to ship me a new phone. If anyone needs the stock ROM in the future, I'm going to make a full backup as soon as I get it.
