To dump the i780 rom you have to do just few steps.

1) Change the security policies to install the needed utility

With a regedit sw change the value in the following key


from 2 to 1

2) Download the utilities from here

3) open a prompt on the PC, Chdir to the directory where the utlities are previuously unpacked and type the following command

pdocread.exe –l

The output will be something like

254.25M (0xfe40000) DSK1:
| 1.25M (0xYYYYYY) Part00
| 2.88M (0xZZZZZZ) Part01
| 76.25M (0xWWWWW) Part02
| 172.50M (0xYYYYYY) Part03
3.79G (0xZZZZZZ) DSK2:
| 3.79G (0xWWWWW) Part00



Type the following commands

pdocread -w -d DSK1: -b 0x800 -p Part00 0 0xYYYYYY Part00.raw

pdocread -w -d DSK1: -b 0x800 -p Part01 0 0xZZZZZZ Part01.raw

pdocread -w -d DSK1: -b 0x800 -p Part02 0 0xWWWWW Part02.raw

Obviously change YYY,ZZZ,WWW, with the real values taken from step 3

Your dump is done.

The files are a backup of the rom but arent ready to be flashed back again with the mirage tool, you have to use other tools to obtain someting useful.

Search for the famusc kitchen for further details.
