Default Kitkat partition files

I was wondering if anyone has been able to pull the partition files for kitkat? I ask because I've seen people get their phone stuck in fastboot mode and being able to flash the proper image files will help fix their probs, however the only image files I know of are for JB. I would do it myself if I knew how....

even though that should work for getting stock partitions it doesn't give them to you in .img except for the system/userdata&cache partitions so you would only be able to fastboot flash those three partitions, all other partitions are in .bin format and unless there is a way to convert them to .img(I haven't found a working method yet) than they won't work

Hmm....interesting. I did not know that. Maybe I'll ask one of the devs and see if they have a solution to that. Thanks for the tip.

never actually tried, but it could work(if bender says it does than it should) somebody would just need to test that theory with all the partitions, but it still doesn't allow me to explore the persist.bin renamed to .img(that contains the rct check I want to do some test with it)

So I was able to pull all the partitions for the Verizon variant (VS980). They are currently in in .bin format. Not sure if I should change them to .img tho. Haven't tested any of the files yet so on looking to see if anyone is brave enough to try lol.

Using the tool mentioned earlier you can get the system into a .img, so that you an tinker with it/I already tried with the persist.bin and rename to persist.img worked but I haven't tested anything else since I've been working on other things, otherwise anything you need to know let me know and I can test on my side
