whom is this tutorial for?
For those who need exact system files from FTF of SONY XPERIA smart phone
Open the ftf file using winrar
Extract which ever file u need (in this case i need system folder so i extracted system.sin )
Open flash tool and click advanced option and then click sin editor
Go to system.sin file from where u had extracted and open file
Click dump data option
Wait for it to finish the process
After finishing the process u will get two files in the folder where u r having original system.sin (one will be system.partinfo and other will be system.yaffs2 ) so tht u get yaffs2 file continue with the next step
Download unyaffs tool from the link provided first and extract unyaffs.exe and cygin1.dll to c drive of ur system by making a folder named "unyaffs"
Go to the folder where u get system.yaffs2 ( the file we get though the flash tool process) and copy the file
Paste it to the unyaffs folder in "c"
While u are in unyaffs folder press shift + right mouse button then only u will get "open command window here option", click that.... Other wise u can go to this folder using usual command method
U will get command window inside unyaffs folder
U should type inside the command window "unyaffs.exe system.yaffs2" (app name)(space)(name of the file u need to extract, if u need to extract kernel use tht file name here) and then press enter
Wait for some time " until u see end of image " and u can see the extracted folders appearing in the unyaffs folder
through this method u can get any .sin file inside ur ftf
