Default Request for Bootloader image

Update: We have images, all images obtained for the partitions are uploaded here:
http://jellybean.dccontests.com/optimusg/

Partion 27 is recovery, and bootloader is partition 5.

I see from the AT&T thread that many people are getting their phones this weekend. If someone who gets the phone can send me an image of the bootloader I'd like to start getting a look at it.


If you need directions on how to do this, let me know. Currently I'm trying to figure out what the block devices are on the phone. If anyone knows this let me know, so I can direct someone (dbgeek) to get a dd of it.

Bought mine 15 min ago at the AT&T store. How do I take an image?

I can walk you through it, but how much experience do you have with Linux/adb?

Sorry, but zero sums it up pretty well. I'm capable of navigating via DOS or UNIX commands if that helps in any way.

Go ahead and install the android sdk and adb, http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/How...id_SDK#Windows . Then root your phone, and install busybox.

Plug your phone into the computer, run adb devices in a command prompt. It should show your phone. Then run

Code:
adb shell
su
ls /dev
df
And post the output of the last two commands. I need to know a bit more about the phone so I can give you detailed steps and that will give me the info I need.

Sorry if anything is confusing, just let me know, I'm at work typing this

mbonus, thank you for the output, unfortunatly it doesn't show me what the storage memory block devices are. I'm looking for something along the lines of "mmcblk" or others, try the following as root (su) in adb and post the output:

Code:
cat /etc/vold.fstab
The thing here is I just have to figure out which block device/partition holds the bootloader, so you can dump it to the sdcard (or internal storage) and then send it my way. The vold.fstab file should contain what the block devices are. They might be in a subfolder of /dev .


Also when you are roor you should have a '#' instead of a '$' at the beginning of the line in the shell.
