Default help with bkondisk

Since this was a question I have moved it to the Q & A forum before I get spanked by a moderator.

The topic over there is clearly Excalibur related - so I believe it should be here.

anyway - why do you need bkondisk to get dumps of the existing partitions?

Do you have a Spanish ROM to flash on the device already or do you want to make one yourself (I doubt that)?

The usual sequence for flashing is:
1.) application unlock old OS
2.) run jump-SPL (a RAM replacement for the ROM SPL which does not care for CID lock)
3.) flash new OS

I also have backed up my old OS, but I have no idea how to flash that back. bkondisk can only READ - not write!
The dumped data are also still somehow "crypted" as the Samsung OneNAND storage which you dump has an own encoding.
Try to get a shipped ROM of the version that has a matching CID, so can be loaded without all the unlock/jump-SPL stuff.
Android: Samsung S4 mini (4.4.2. towelroot-ed, KNOX intact), Galaxy Tab 2 7" (GT-P3110 8GB, JB 4.1.2 rooted - KK Blackhawk Next kernel), Xperia Ray 4.0.4 (rooted, CTCaer v2.8 kernel)
Windows Mobile: Tornado <- LG KS20 <- Benq E72 <- Hurricane <- Amadeus
Legacy: Siemens ME45 <- S35i
