Fist step (with a rooted phone). Get all the ROM img files:

1) Conect the phone throught adb.
2) adb shell
3) su
4) cat /proc/mtd

It will write down somenthing like this (this is from my LG P500 so it will be different for OT991D)
dev: size erasesize name
mtd0: 00440000 00020000 "boot"
mtd1: 0be00000 00020000 "system"
mtd2: 00500000 00020000 "recovery"
mtd3: 002c0000 00020000 "lgdrm"
mtd4: 00100000 00020000 "splash"
mtd5: 00180000 00020000 "FOTABIN"
mtd6: 005c0000 00020000 "FOTA"
mtd7: 00040000 00020000 "misc"
mtd8: 04000000 00020000 "cache"
mtd9: 0c780000 00020000 "userdata"

5) Now you can get files with cat. For exapample to get boot and recovery:
cat /dev/mtd/mtd1 > /sdcard/mtd1.img
cat /dev/mtd/mtd2 > /sdcard/mtd2.img

The files will be stored in the sd. Mount and copy.

Those are the basic files from our original ROM. But the boot.img. That is the vulnerable boot.img that we used to root the phone.

mtd15: 03c00000 00020000 "cache"
mtd16: 09e80000 00020000 "userdata"

Just remenber that boot.img is the vulnerable one NOT the factory one. Also system is modified with less applications (basically all that garbage that we donīt need) and the Alcatel keyboard is removed (also its languajes). System also includes root and busybox.

Default Boot image with app2sd

Hi everyone,

finally I have a new boot image with A2SD support.

Mod Edit Link Removed as it is stated in next post not to use.

Please be carefull:

1) I donīhave the 991D. So I can no test it by the moment.
2) It is the vulnerable image+app2sd DT.
3) Allways have the "new-boot.img" by mrdoubble by hand. Just in case you need to rollback.
4) Use flash tool to apply it.

There is somenthing strange with our boot.img so I have to separate the kernel from ramdisk by hand with hexeditor. I have done the new image with mkboot, so I donīt know if Alcatel it is not using the standard headers it is going to work.

You have to do a partition in your SD to store the apps (ext2). Try it and use app2sd gui to test if everything works.

Hi,

I've tried to flash my ot-991 following the instructions givens by tutorial 'how to root 991-d', using the file root991-D, the scatered file and teh 'new-image'. After then my phone is dead and when I try to flash again I have a message like : BROM ERROR : S_DL_GET_DRAM_SETTING_FAIL (5054). Doing memory test I have the same problem, but it works fine when I 'Read back' the boot image. Can you have any idea ?

I understand spanish, cause I'm spanish.

Thank you for your help
