Hello!

Is there any tool for windows 7 to extract, read, write EXT4 or .SIN files? Tried ext2extract tool but it can only extract, I need something that can read/write, anyway to do it? Or should I install linux for that?

Thanks

You can dump the system.sin (and other .sin files) to .ext4 using flashtool
Then you can use ext2explorer to read and extract individual files.

If you want to write a .sin....that going to be difficult. Unless you have signatures from Sony you wont be able to do it.

No, this is what you need

FTF's cannot be pre rooted or have anything added to them, unless you work for Sony and have their security keys
you need a pre rooted .zip file
