Catenated the partitions under /dev/block to binary files. You can download them all here
. A few notes though. First is that I didn't included partition 5, 11, 12, 13, and 14 because these are specific to every user. Also, I didn't include partition 7 (aka the "nv" partition) because that has the IMEI in it. A few things that I noticed: partitions 5 and 7 are mostly NULL characters, while partitions boot0, boot1, 6, 8, and 9 are all NULL characters (verified this with checksums of empty files of equal length). I also didn't include these NULL partitions since you can just create NULL files anyway (in windows: fsutil file createnew filename.ext #ofbytes
). Also, the paritions that weren't included are listed in the file "sizes.txt" with some information about them, including their sizes in KB. It makes sense that partition 9 be all NULL since it's "reserved", but I'm unsure of the others. I'm guessing that it's feeding me NULL characters instead because of a permission issue. The boot0 and boot1 are especially mysterious. Here are their associated names one more time:
Still haven't figured out what divxkey (partition 5) is for, but it changes all the time. Partition 6, misc, is supposed to be hardware settings, USB configuration, and carrier ID. But again, this partition was NULL upon feeding to a new file (probably a permission issue). Partition 7, nv, I can only gather contains important information like the IMEI. Partition 8, fota, must have something to do with the Firmware-Over-The-Air process. Probably a temporary area to download the firmware. Partition 11 is just your contacts, messages, settings, and apps while partition 12 is just your frequently accessed data and app components. Partition 13, or "persist", seems to be a thing that replaces swap. Under low memory conditions, android terminates the application but allows it to persist
it's state through a series of callbacks. This way, it appears as though the app never restarted. Partition 14, mlt, I'm unsure of. Though, I did notice a process called "LG MLT". I can't help but think the two are correlated. Searching online I found several "answers". Some say that it's some kind of logging system, others say it's a management tool for LG roms, and one person even said it's HDMI over USB. I'm not really sure about this, but I'm with the opinion that it's some kind of logging system because it changes all the time.
