    Well the only issue left in the ports I'm working on is drivers. Every time I load a driver something screws up and hangs at boot. I'm thinking the best path is making a custom kernel to load my new setup.

    WAKE UP Everybody!!! :p

    I have recently bought a 7" pad with 4.03 AND a 3e version of CWM (branded by InfotMIC, of all people!) :eek:
    (known as 'updater')...

    Long-story-short, I am attempting to get it to work on another 4.03 so that the system can be saved/restored and:

    I have successfully:
    stripped the original 64-byte header,
    gunzipped it
    and cpio'ed it into a temp directory,
    then modified the recovery.fstab from the version that had ONLY ONE WORKING device... the external TF (as /dev/block/mmcblk1p1).

    Unfortunately, once re-assembled, the resulting UPDATER file is not being loaded by the boot-sd sequence.
    I can only believe that it is caused by the saved-off 64-byte header is 'wrong' now, and thus it refuses to install it.

    MY problem is that I do not know how to modify/generate that header to make it happy...


    Any thoughts/ideas, anyone?

    EDIT:
    I'd like eventually, to use Tuzz' 4.0.1.5 instead (which has more functions and loads fine but little else) but cannot breach the 'modified-wont-install' issue.
    :D

    EDIT2:
    I have finally remembered how to rebuild the images... now to get it complete! :eek:

    I have completed the changes for the NAND-based EGL25BL (Tiny) and am satisfied with the results. The only possible remaining change would be to save the internal 2g 'Local-disk' portion...

    I consider it acceptable as is, particularly since I can do a save to Windows OR Linux now... :p

    IDEALLY, Id like to make saving it an OPTION... but I have another 'MMC-based with ramdisk and kernel 'elsewhere' to finish up first.
    Not accessing ramdisk/kernel properly prevents the rest of the backup...

    Otherwise, Im quite pleased with it! :D
