$ ./extractboot boot.img
Android Magice not found in ./boot.img/ Giving up.

gzip: ../../boot.img-ramdisk.gz: unexpected end of file

Any help with this error? I am trying to split and edit a custom CM9/ICS boot.img

I've tried to unpack the last boot.img from cm9 RC2 to get the new cwm 6.x but I have an issue

Code:
$ ./extractboot boot.img
Page size: 2048 (0x00000800)
Kernel size: 3229308 (0x0031467c)
Ramdisk size: 1789254 (0x001b4d46)
Second size: 0 (0x00000000)
Board name:
Command line:
Writing boot.img-kernel ... complete.
Writing boot.img-ramdisk.gz ... complete.
./extractboot: line 17: cpio: command not found

Hello,I'm having the same error with CM9/10 ICS/JellyBean kernel boot.img,there are chances it comes from the kernel itself as it appears to be or should we better look into our configuration?

helo, i repacket doomlord kernel v22 and when im trying to flash it i got this error :

FAILED (remote: Wrong range:0x10008000-0x103202d7. Ok:0x00200000 - 0x03dfff)

It's somethink about size of kernel and "fake size maker" file, but i dont know how to fix it.

So I pulled a working one apart and replaced the kernel with the compiled one.

Code:
[email protected] ~
$ cd /boot

[email protected] /boot
$ ./extractboot boot.img
Page size: 2048 (0x00000800)
Kernel size: 4463500 (0x00441b8c)
Ramdisk size: 372027 (0x0005ad3b)
Second size: 0 (0x00000000)
Board name:
Command line: console=ttyHSL0,115200,n8 androidboot.hardware=qcom loglevel=0
Writing boot.img-kernel ... complete.
Writing boot.img-ramdisk.gz ... complete.
2881 blocks

[email protected] /boot
$ ./packboot
Using base address 0x40200000
Using command line 'console=ttyHSL0,115200,n8 androidboot.hardware=qcom loglevel=0'
No errors

I then put it back together and I'm getting the boot.img is like half the original size (even tho the kernel files were pretty close to almost deadon the same size) and when I try to send to boot I get this

Code:
>fastboot boot boot_new.img
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [  1.168s]
booting...
FAILED (remote: incomplete bootimage)
finished. total time: 1.168s

This is for a Pantech Burst (p9070) if that helps at all
Original boot.img
New repacked boot.img
