The process is described in step 2 of this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=1013

And if the ROM is given in a single-file, how do I skip the phone/modem part when flashing?

I know in a multiple-file version, it goes something like this:

OPS = GIO_v1.0.ops
Boot = APBOOT_S5660XXKPA_CL258140_REV03_user_low_true.tar .md5
Phone = MODEM_S5660XXKP7_CL258140_REV03.tar.md5
PDA = PDA_GIOPRO_v1.1_CL258140_REV03.tar.md5
CSC = GT-S5660-csc-SERKP4.tar.md5

How would I extract these parts separately from a single tar file??

Or is there any other way to accomplish this??


Any help would be really really appreciated.

And thanks in advance to anyone who could lend a hand.



Can anyone help please?

Hi, thanks for the replies above, I think what I'm trying to ask is that sometimes ROMs are compiled into 1 file format, sometimes there are multiple files, how do I convert between these two ??


How do I change the one file into multiple files, which enables me to skip certain parts, which enables me to actually use it on S5600M.

The SimpliGio+ ROM offered this functionality.


Thanks

short answer: you can't. you actually can't extract the file you need because it's a *.tar file. of course you can open it with 7zip but that wouldn't help you. that means it's a file that does not have any other dependencies and it can be flashed by itself along with an *.ops file. it is a so called "one package" that has all the drivers compiled along with the code for them to work. there is no solution for your problem and it will never be. but for what you need, you can take the roms that have multiple files (modem, csc, phone etc) and just skip the modem. example: you cannot use the giopro v1.4 file that is posted for download because it's a single file... but... you may have a shot if you ask the developer as in rachmat3 to give you these files... or you can use another custom rom that is based on multiple files. sorry for not giving you good news but that's how it works. good luck

Thank you for your reply. This is exactly what I've been looking for, it is sad news but at least now I know :)

Thanks again. Cheers!

What I meant was how do I take a sing package(. Tar) file and break it Into the separate files that Odin uses when using the multiple file method. If I can do that I can choose to skip some files. The reply above you told me this can't be done.

Anyways thanks for all help from everyone. :)

thik first then post
so... you are actually very very wrong. the giopro v1.4 is actually the best rom i've seen (talk about performance and not launcher design). now i assume you are on xda... because you are interested in stuff like this so it should not matter what launcher you have on the rom as long as there are many options for changing the launcher (including the option to turn back to stock touchwiz launcher). you can change it yourself. i actually installed this rom and deleted many default, stock apps that bugged me (they just ate my phone memory and were not that good compared to other apps) and installed new ones... it is a matter of how good the custom rom is, but on this forum you are provided with ideas to improve the performance. so my advice... you could have said you don't like the launcher but not that the "1,4 version sucks".
