[dev] doubleshot de-odexed system images (dev base)
Return to Contents Page - doubleshot Developers Reference
THESE ARE NOT ROMs.
...and this thread is not aimed at users.
These are the base of what could be a ROM some day if someone wants to make them into such.
Provided as-is with no promise of support or usability ( but you know we're here for that if you need it, and they worked fine on my device )
HTC Software Versions:
1.28.531.9 - Retail Launch
1.55.531.3 - OTA
1.63.531.2 - OTA
Okay, yesterday I tore open the 1.63.531.2 software package and started seeing what I could see.
While I was playing with it I made another round of insecure boot images ( find here
...one thing led to another and then here I sat with 3 de-odexed system images and corresponding insecure boot.img files I had made, and a sunrise that was surprising because I hadn't realized it had set yet from the day before...
Anyways, I had fun with this project and hopefully having these here will encourage people to start tinkering with their own ROM creations.
These base system.img files are the same system.img files generated when you make a clockworkmod backup - so no goofy headers or signed stuff to worry about, just the image file.
You can unyaffs it like normal to get at the contents of the image.
If you are on windows, avabox
is a fantastic set of tools with a full yaffs setup in it, as well as the easiest smali/backsmali process i've found. Top notch tool and one I use frequently when on windows.
I actually did the de-odexing itself with xUltimate
- it went ahead and did it all in one automatic batch process for each software version when I got to that part, instead of me manually doing it with avabox or other backsmali tools. (Nice!!)
Even so, it still took most of the night to set up and then process each software version and de-odex it, so i'm providing them here for people to just grab and start working on.
So, to answer that question of "where do I start?" for getting into developing, here is a pretty good place:
HTC 1.63.531.2 Software Version
The new OTA software version that started on the 19th and was paused (again...) on the 20th of march is the 1.63.531.2 software version, our newest.

Other versions of the boot.img found here.
Also shows what code was changed to make it insecure.
If you lose the modules needed to make wifi work with the boot image, these are stock boot images and can get those modules from here if they are lost from system:

Mirrors welcome, just please make sure to include a link in this thread if you do ( I will copy it to first posting for others reference) and just make sure to link to the thread and not the mirrors direct elsewhere please?
Good places to go next from here would be:
...and start to learn how to set up the stuff you make so you can deploy it to a device.
