[Q] dd command is only writing 64k bits to partition
I have a sprint phone that can only get into bulk mode. I followed this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2582142
and everything works fine except for the dd command. When I write to a partition (well at least aboot and recovery since those are the only 2 I've tried) and then cmp the image to the partition I just wrote to only the first 64k bits match out of the 1MB partition. I've tried ubuntu fatdog and gparted and all have the same problem. What's weirder is that before I borked my phone I used the Zv8_aboot.img that is around and when I just try to rewrite that image it is still only the first 64k bits that match so it's like I'm not writing to the write part of the partition because the img and the partition should match.
I didn't make a backup of the aboot partition before doing all of this so if anyone else has a sprint phone with a ZV8_aboot.img in the aboot partition, and has access to bulk mode can you use dd to make an image of the partition so that I can try to at least get my aboot back? After that I'll try this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2708466&page=2
to get into fastboot.
Also, for anyone else that has no download mode and no recovery you can get into bulk mode by going into factory reset mode. I can't remember the exact button presses for that but after you are in and you hit power 3 times your phone shouldn't reset (you might have to have a custom recovery installed for that to be the case though) but it will end up going into bulk mode; it did for me anyway.
