Hi friends,

1.First you need to download these 4 files

3.Open the *FTF file with 7Zip
You'll see these files and folders
Code:
META-INF
adsp.sin
amss.sin
amss_fs_urushi.sin
apps_log.sin
cache.sin
fota0.sin
fota1.sin
kernel.sin
loader.sin
system.sin
userdata.sin

4
.Extract system.sin to the folder where you extraxt ftf-extractor.

5.Press SHIFT+RIGHT CLICK on the empty space of the folder.You'll see a dialog like this


6.select OPEN COMMAND WINDOW HERE

7.Type
Code:

can this be recompiled to a FTF file again? I was thinking of a pre rooted FTF file.

Thanks

This is good tutorial. One question, after we extract to .ftf and .sin files, can we again compress it to .ftf file?

Thanks!

I think you can. We need to unlock bootlader for flash kernel. So flash system no need to unlock boot loader.

One question how do you make .sin file after extract it?

You can't create/repack a "system.sin" since it is proprietary file/format .
ftf file is just a zip file ...with .ftf extension instead .zip
( like .cbz for comics/Creader )

Thats why update.zip is used .
