Here we go!

3 Relevant partitions on the Zune HD:

ZBoot
NK
EXT

(there's actually a 4th partition, but it's a recovery partition for NK to facilitate fail-safe updating)

Enjoy

(a note: some files appear to be damaged, its my first time dumping a CE 7/Zune HD ROM :P)
(another note: thanks to nd4spd for getting the rom update to me, i don't have a zune hd )

These executables are designed for CE 7 and more than likely will not work at all on CE 5 (although things coded for .NET might)

Really, you tell me, though, I haven't actually tried

Another quick Q, did you dump that yourself or find it somewhere?

Actually, all I did was reset my Zune HD in recovery mode and plugged it in. When the Zune Software detected it, it downloaded the ROM from MS. When I was defragging my computer a few days earlier, I happened to find the folder where it saved all of the Firmware Updates. So I just looked in that folder and found the FirmwareUpdate.cab that had the .bin files in it.

after messing around with it, looks like nothing can really be recmoded to make dll files. it may need another way to rec mod than in the vk.
