[Kindle Fire 2 Restore][Working!!!]-12/7/2012
How to restore your Kindle Fire 2
Using the backup.sh from kinfauns that I modded because the partition table for the KF2 is not the same as the HD.
I attached the new backup.sh for the KF2 on this post.
I developed a Recovery Tool based of the one onemeila created for the KFHD.
This will restore your boot/recover partitions (good for if you are gonna mess with the Bootloader Crack)
Restore your system.img to a Deodexed Rooted 10.2.1 Software. I have stripped ALOT of Kindle Apps from this backup.
Erase userdata & cache cleanup should be done when restoring.
for the original backup.sh
for his original Recovery Tool for the KFHD
, and fattire
for answering my endless and noobish questions and saying there HAS to be a way.
And all those who have offered to help me get a 10.2.1 system.img for the KF2
The post here
contains the partition table for the KF2.
How I did it:
Due to the raw system.img being too big for fastboot to flash back to the KF2 I had to make the raw image
a sparse image file using help found in this
- Mount the raw system.img (created and extracted from the system.img.gz using the backup.sh)
sudo mount -t ext4 -o loop system.img sys/
- Create a new flashable(sparse) system image.
sudo ./make_ext4fs -s -l 929038336 -a system new_system.img sys/
sudo umount sys
rm -fr sys
With that all said and done I was able to flash the sparse system.img to my KF2 and restore it!
It was bricked big time!!!!
