[Tool] Yaffey - Utility for reading, editing and writing YAFFS2 images
I've created a GUI utility for reading, editing and creating YAFFS2 images that hopefully people will find useful. You can read Android system and data partitions and modify them how you like. Import and export files to and from the images. The tool is up on Google Code with source, written in Qt 4.8.1.
- Create new YAFFS2 image
- Open existing image
- Export files/directories from image
- Import files into image (permissions inherited from parent directory, dates created/modified/accessed set to current date & time)
- Delete files
- Edit filenames
- Edit permissions
- Edit user and group ids
- Edit symbolic link aliases
- ECC (Error Checking & Correction) support
New in v0.2
Added import dialog to choose to import file(s) or a directory
Added support to import multiple files
Added support to import 1 directory at a time (using dialog)
Added drag & drop importing (which supports multiple directories & files!)
Added support to delete more than one item at a time
Added summary dialog after saving an image
Added text below icons in toolbar at the request of varun.chitre15
I've been using it to modify the stock system image for my Xperia Play. You can easily add/remove APKs etc. It's a nice alternative to the unyaffs/mkyaffs command line tools.
It has limitations but am happy to extend the functionailty if it's found to be useful...
