1. On STEP 3 I did the following:
Extract the system.ext4.tar.
If your TWRP backup is in compression method, you will get a file named 'system.ext4',
Rename it to 'system.ext4.tar'
Next part, " Extract to get the 'system' folder", does not work. What do I do here?
2. Doing #1 in Linux or does this need to be done win Windows?
3. META-INF - My HTC ONE X+ (code name evitare UL) does not have any custom ROMs I can find. What other sources of META-INF are there?
Please notify me at firstname.lastname@example.org when you post answers. Thanks
You can get your META-INF from one of them
Extract to get the system folder:
CYGWIN Unpacking TWRP Backup Files
Download CYGWIN http://cygwin.com/
data.ext4.win to data.ext4.win.tar
system.ext4.win001 to system.ext4.win001.tar
Make a directory in your CYGWIN Home [Username]folder
Use Windows File Explorer go to your CYGWING Home
C:\cygwin\home\carl (your user name will be here)
make any folder you choose
and C:\cygwin\home\carl\untar\data ( for data files)
put your renamed data files in a folder named data
C:\cygwin\home\carl\untar\data (this is to keep files separate when unpacked)
While in Explorer put your renamed system files in untar folder
start CYGWIN ( Use the Cygwin Terminal and then you can copy and paste these commands)
cd to untar folder
do these commands one at a time, it will extract to a folder named system
tar -xvf system.ext4.win000.tar
tar -xvf system.ext4.win001.tar
cd to data
do this command
tar -xvf data.ext4.win.tar
tar -xvf data.ext4.win000.tar
tar -xvf data.ext4.win001.tar
all your data files will extract
