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:
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:
Download Busybox from here : http://rapidshare.com/files/407238531/busybox What is Busybox ?? Read about it here: http://www.busybox.net/
MD5 Signature: C5B76280434EEF49310AD8F1810B10B2
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
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.
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.
Type: cd /sdcard This command is given inorder to go to the sdcard ( i.e the internal storage of your phone )
Type: chmod 755 /data/local/busybox This command is issued to set user -rwxrwxr-x permissions to the file.
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.
Job Done !!
The Samsung.tar file can be copied to the computer now. Have fun.
