Hey thanks but ive tried that kitchen before and no luck
i figure the problem is
caused because the boot.img 's are not of standard type and do not have the standard ANDROID header therefore that kitchen wouldnt work
Okay, unpackbootimg crashes trying to unpack the boot.img from FXP204-cm-9-20130126-UNOFFICIAL-kumquat because it has the wrong "magic" at the top. trevd pointed this out as a definite incompatibility for some devices a couple pages back. Trying trevd's split_img from the first page, it actually reports the "Wrong magic" error and shows that the file has an ELF header not an ANDROID!. Opening in HxD shows that there is no ANDROID! header later on as with some HTC devices, so ELF is the only header, and we're basically dealing with a different, unsupported filetype here. On the upside, there is no real gap in the data, so there might not be a ramdisk packed with it anyway.
enlighten me on the linux alternatives please
