Exclamation [Request][ROOT] Rooted GB userdata partition image (CG37)

There is apparently a new rooting method:

But for it to work we need the userdata partition image (aka CG37) of someone with a rooted GB.

So if someone with a rooted GB can run the following:

dd if=/dev/block/userdata of=/sdcard/CG37.smg

busybox dd if=/dev/block/userdata of=/sdcard/CG37.smg
and upload it somewhere, it woul help us test whether this method works

Thanks in advance

Do you think we could use the CG37 from other (similar) devices?
For example, as far as i know, the milestone 2 is very similar to the defy and the Pro looks similar too.
We just need it to boot, so we can push the needed files to system.
Have you uploaded your CG37 somewhere, so i can test in on my MS2?
Try it!

Re upping this thread..
My Milestone came back from motorola tech support with a unrootable 2.3.6 so I need ANY gingerbread userdata backup. You don't even have to use the dd command if you don't want to. A data.ext3.tar or from clockworkmod would do.
Also you can wipe data before creating the userdata backup so I won't have access to your stuff, but boot at least once so the phone can create the needed files.
