Default Boot.img - How to open this file?

I was wondering if there are any software that can open this file? Anyone knows? I was trying to open with ISOMagic but it can't.

It uses the yaffs2 filesystem so you might need to keep that in mind... Windows doesnt natively support it so you probably need to install something to add compatibility (but i havent found anything yet)

I would like to add the boot config xml file to the JF ADP 1.5 and try to make it start up with any gif images and mp3 boot sounds. I've seen haykuro's ADP builds and i would like to invent new boot structions to JF ADP 1.5 build , just hope so......i don't really care about breaking the phone

Like korndub said, running Linux in a virtual machine is a good option for doing some quick tweaking. I suggest VMware player combined with a premade Ubuntu appliance.
