Default [TUT] How To Create DUMP out of Stock Rom ( UP NOW )

Hello .

Posting a tutorial on how to create a dump out of your stock rom, in case you delete some apps or modify some settings.


ALRIGHT LETS START:

STEP ONE:

Alright, so you want to make a backup of your phone software, but dont know what to do. Its simple, download the package the Android SDK from google and copy it to C:\ drive. Once you have download it, make sure you have Java installed in your system or else it will not work. After everything is done, open the program and install these two packages:

1. Android SDK Tools, revision 6

2. USB Driver package, revision3 ([COLOR="Red"IMP: Its important that the USB driver installed shows up as Composite Android Debug Device, else it wont work. ][/COLOR]


What Android SDK ?? Read about it here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

Why Android SDK ? Because: it has the android debug shell which you require before communicating with your android phone. So download it ! From here:

STEP TWO:

Download Busybox from here : http://rapidshare.com/files/407238531/busybox What is Busybox ?? Read about it here: http://www.busybox.net/
MD5 Signature: C5B76280434EEF49310AD8F1810B10B2

STEP THREE:

One you have downloaded busybox, copy it to the C:\ drive of your computer and then follow the next step. The next step is to open the Command Prompt ( type cmd in the Run prompt ) if using Vista right click on "Run as Administrator".

Assuming you are the root of C:\

Type: C:\cd android-sdk-windows

-> then

Type: C:\android-sdk-windows\ cd tools

-> if you have android debug shell and USB drivers properly installed

Type: adb devices

Now your device will show up as a binary number .. Success ! if it doesn't show up you need to install the drivers again or something else is wrong.


STEP FOUR:

Now once your device shows up, we will need to download the busybox from the computer to the phone. Since we can write anything in the /data/local portion of the android system we will copy the busybox file to the android device.

Type: adb push busybox /data/local/busybox

Once it has been copied to your device issue this command.

Type: adb shell This coomand is issued to go to your mobile's terminal where you can issue commands internally to the phone.

--> then

Type: cd /sdcard This command is given inorder to go to the sdcard ( i.e the internal storage of your phone )

--> then

Type: chmod 755 /data/local/busybox This command is issued to set user -rwxrwxr-x permissions to the file.

--> then

Finally, issue this command.

Type: /data/local/busybox tar cvf Samsung.tar /system This command is given to copy and tar the system folder where all the stock applications and programs are and to create a dump of that system folder.

STEP FIVE:

Job Done !!

The Samsung.tar file can be copied to the computer now. Have fun.

A dump is simply a backup of your original ROM right?

it is only a backup of your stock apps and driver if so however it doesnt convert the files into a flashable rom version.

So this is not a tutorial of how you back up your stock rom but how you back up your stock apps and stock drivers?

Correct. We most likely won't be able to actually perform a complete backup until Nandroid works on the handset.
hardware HTC One software Android Revolution HD
hardware Nexus 7 software CM11
previous HTC Touch Diamond + HTC Magic + Motorola Milestone + Sharp 007SH + Samsung i9000 + Samsung Galaxy Tab (P1000) + Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (P7500) + Samsung Galaxy S3

Too bad, the title was very promising but what you show is just an backup archive of the system.

BTW, there is no guarantee that restoring it will produce a usable phone, because kernel, datas, modem baseband etc won't be restored too !

But this can be useful to restore some file after a mistake done on /system files.
