With xonar's LG Bin Firmware Extractor, we are able to extract the bin files into partitions (the image files for our device).
So, what can you do with this you ask?
Well if you ever deleted a system app ( /system/app/*.apk ) or anything else (ringtones & etc), you can recover it from the kdz file.

This thread was a follow-up on Cmahendra's guide, extracting kdz files into .bin(s).

However, thanks to our siblings in the LG-P970 forum, we have a simpler way to extract the kdz into images.
@jes0411 and others ( @t0g3, @Ilko, & @navossoc ) created a really sweet program to do all the thinking for us here.
I just stripped it down some and modified it to extract the kdz into images faster and simpler.

Alright,
1. First you will need a kdz file. Don't forget to thank @cmahendra

2. Download and extract my OPTIMUS_L9_IMAGE_EXTRACTOR.zip to any folder.

Md5sum: c2b25e195a24f0d4e187338a66037fc2
Please check Md5sum with this free program WinMD5.

3. Open the "Place KDZ HERE" folder and put your kdz file(s) inside. Then double click on the "RUN BINEXTRACTOR.bat", select the # for your kdz and press ENTER





NOTE: The System image takes awhile to extract.

4. To further extract the system image, double click on "EXPLORER.bat" and give it Administrator rights. Navigate to the system image (9-system.img), click "open", and right click Save (to any folder).








The other batch script (EXTRACT TO BINS.bat) will duh, extract the kdz to bin files only. I also have instruction on how to extract the x-loader with a hex editor (for those hardcore nerds, like me ; )

I have flashed the x-loader, u-boot, boot, recovery, & system images, so all image are
Question? Why are some images blank (0b)? Answer

Credits:

The first person to thanks is navossoc for creating his program to extract the kdz into .bin(s) files.

The second person to thank is Xonar_ for creating the LG Bin Firmware Extractor to work for our device. (Thank you for all your hard work, and for teaching this noob something : )


Third, to the creators of ext2Fsd

Fourth, to @jes0411 and others ( @t0g3, @Ilko, & @navossoc ), I've learned a lot about batch scripts, by dissecting y'all work


The last but not least person to thank is Cmahendra for creating all his threads full of information. I would have never found all this information on my own

Y'all should thank xonar_ for making his program compatible for our devices. Another thing, he updated his source so we don't have to be run in compatibility mode, I'll upload the fixed binextractor later tonight.

Send me a screen shot of what looks like. Extexplore must be ran as administrator. Check out the text or in this thread on how to use those programs. Another thing, how big is the system img size?
To use extfsd you need to install virtual clonedriver first,
Right click on the system img and mount with virtual clone
The how to geek website does not say that extfsd must be installed as administrator, but it does.
Righr click on extFsd and (run as administrator) install, Once opened, click on the tool tab and select "Service Management" (or just press F7 key) then press the "Start"
Note: I HAD MY SYSTEM CRASH WHILE USING EXT2FSD, SO DON'T USE IT WHILE DOING IMPORTANT STUFF!
BETTER YET DON'T USE. UPDATING THE THREAD

Thumbs up nice screenshots
Thanks a lot for this guide with good screenshot images. Already had this bin-extractor info but recently I did not get enough time to put all the things together. May be earlier I was working like demon-possessed person but then few people started bugging me and killed my passion. May be you noticed it.

Anyways thanks a lot. Many people will find it useful

Kuma:
Ext2fsd has never crashed on me ever with my laptop on windows 7.
I don't change compatibility mode and I don't run it as admin. Don't know why its unstable for you. Maybe this system.img isn't as stable as other ones I've extracted?? Idk.
I've mainly only extracted bins/tots from the the msm8960 processor phones. Hmm, I'll check it out sometime.
