    I have an "A13" chinese nameless tablet that i bought from DX,
    I backup my firmware with fw_dump2 (this tool: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/boxchip-a13-tablet/43691-tool-firmware-dumper-a13.html)
    and then flash another rom, but from then my touchscreen won't work.

    I want to recover my backuped firmware but I don't know how to create a livesuite .img file from the 4 files that fw_dump2 created for me
    (bootloader.img, boot.img, recovery.img, system.tgz).
    I saw some tutrials with the "A10 Flash Kitchen" but there many files i haven't (like root.img, bootfs) and i didn't succed doing that.
    If someone know how to help me with this, I will really appreciate it!
    Thanks

    You have a long and trick process ahead.

    Details everything, but you have to read between the lines a bit as you aren't starting from a firmware image.
    It's really important that you read all the comments, as there is an important step missing from the main guide (_bootfs must be collected from your tablet before you can successfully build a new firmware image)
    All the tools are linked in the guide.
