    well i was pointed to this link today when i was searching for a fully functional recovery for my new intercept (which is in the mail. can i please get a clean esn this time!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    I'm not sure if this is even doable for our tablets or not since i was told our tablets don't have a "recovery Mode"

    but maybe there's someone out there with more knowledge than me about these things who can make some use of this info

    okay so the guide says to use dump_image on the device to pull an image of boot but when i run

    Code:
    #cat proc/mtd
    dev:    size   erasesize  name
    mtd0: 00200000 00080000 "ramdisk"
    mtd1: 00600000 00080000 "kernel"
    mtd2: 08000000 00080000 "resv"
    mtd3: 0c000000 00080000 "system"
    mtd4: 3d800000 00080000 "userdata"
    mtd5: 04000000 00080000 "cache"
    mtd6: 1ff00000 00080000 "Local-disk"
    mtd7: 00100000 00080000 "panic"
    #
    It doesn't show an mtd label boot

    anyone got any guesses which one i need to try to pull?

    so i pulled it all but don't know what to do with any of it or how to see what i pulled here's what i did

    You will need root to dump i do believe i don't know for sure

    i used in terminal on the tablet ( it could be done in adb shell as well)

    Code:
    su
    cat proc/mtd
    it should return something like this

    Code:
    dev:    size   erasesize  name
     mtd0: 00200000 00080000 "ramdisk"
     mtd1: 00600000 00080000 "kernel"
     mtd2: 08000000 00080000 "resv"
     mtd3: 0c000000 00080000 "system"
     mtd4: 3d800000 00080000 "userdata"
     mtd5: 04000000 00080000 "cache"
     mtd6: 1ff00000 00080000 "Local-disk"
     mtd7: 00100000 00080000 "panic"
    Then to dump those to an img file i used dd

    EX.

    Code:
    dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd7 of=/sdcard/panic-dump.img bs=4096
    Change the mtd7 to what ever you're trying to get a dump of. This dumps to the SD card in the form of an img file.

    Hopefully this will put minds brighter than my own on the right track to getting some necessary things working on our tablets.

    a working recovery would be awesome.

    I'm only guessing but i'm thinking that panic may be where the recovery image is installed and we may be able to use that to put the recovery on some of the folks tablet that got the message that there was no recovery image installed.

    anyways just an update
