Yeah you are exactly right. I mean this internet forum really show the exact person I am. I mean I am the most condescending, disrespectful, know it all of the board. I could careless if you don't like me or want to perceive what I say in a negitive manner. The info i offered was spot on and what was explaining was 100% correct. You want to comment on my post but seems you neglect the ones before it...

Well it wasn't all peaches and cream over at the MT4G forum either but it looks like a tough crowd over here man, I thought you would have won over people here by now with the time you put in on the work but I guess that's not a big seller either.

It's gotta be the device dude, the old one still has at least 3 threads in the top ten and you haven't been over there in how long? Grain of salt and directions to the complaint department is all you can do lol...... I'll catch you later man.

Did you download the extractboot files and put them in your system path? If not, that is why. You are using a command and the file is not there to execute....
Hope this helps you...

Well im very new to this I just wanted to play around i learn hands on. But I am 99% sure I put it were it need to be. I was able to unzip it useing UXTerm my stock boot.img is in there as well. I even tryed the downloading the other extractboot of the ref. site and still no luck.

Did you make sure the files are executable?
What OS are you using?
How are you executing the command?



open a terminal in the folder containing your file and execute: ./extractboot bootimg

I am just going by this thread. I am a 100% newb to this. I downloaded ubuntu witch I have never used before but getting the hang of it. (kinda thinking this is just dos.) I also don't know how to see if it is executable. For the command after extractboot was tar xzf in I did just as it says and "extractboot boot.img. Now I know the file is there because when I type in the "directory"/boot.img it says permission denied. This is why I am lost I seem to have everything right but it just not working for me. Something small and dumb I am missing I know it.

Make sure it is executable. Type this:

chmod a+x extractboot

It seems like you are new to linux in general. Here is a list of things I recommend reading to get up to speed and make your life easier when working with this kind of stuff:

- read up on the "chmod" command
- read up on the "ls" command. with this you can check to see if the file is executable (use -l option)
- read up on how to modify your path (environment variable is $PATH)
- read up on ".bashrc" (can set path variable in here)

good luck
