there was a situation, when someone needed to grab, fast and invisible, a ROM dump off of a device at some exhibition...
Well i wrote this bad and nasty tool to do the dirty work... :o)
all you need is a SD card and this tool.
- rename 'grab_it_xx.exe' to 'autorun.exe'
- create folder '2577' on your (empty) SD/MMC/Mini-SD card
- copy 'autorun.exe' to this folder
That's it for the "setup" :o)
Now every time, when you insert this card into PPC it will grab the ROM image and save it into root of the card as 'dump.bin'.
It will show you a tiny red progress bar at the very bottom of the screen.
Once done, it will beep the default sound.
Message boxes are only shown in case of error.
IMPORTANT NOTE (thanx MDAIIIuser)
YOU MUST NOT put it back into another device!!!
YOU MUST LOCK THE SD CARD FIRST!!!!!
or read the SD with card reader on your desktop PC.
Otherwise, you will rewrite the dump with your own ROM!!!!
This ROM dump file can be then further processed and converted to flashable formats.
it is a real spy tool :o))) i mean 007 kind of... :o)))))
Now there are few new versions.
They are for grabing different amount of ROM.
Please note, that you will need a card which is bigger than the ROM size.
32MB dump -> fits onto 64MB card
64MB dump -> fits onto 128MB card
128MB dump -> fits onto 256MB card
THANX for pieces of mamaich's code...
