[HOW-TO] Extract System.img
Lets get the ball rolling and get some development out into the light.
First you will have to download the OTA from Google.
Google’s OTA(13300): http://cache.pack.google.com/edgedl/...8a47e9f124.zip
Next download “SquashFS Exracter”, this tool is used to extract the System.img.
SquashFS Exracter: https://mega.co.nz/#!oEMFQCrC!JbD_9X...9cKMRzq2i_vEDU
When you are ready to go, simply drag system.img onto unsquashfs.exe, and the extraction will do its thing.
A new folder named “squashfs-root” will be where the system.img were located. This folder contains the extracted System.
Have a look around, and please report findings!
