it seems nice... Thanks!

Yet, i have some noob questions about this:

- is this useful to backup / restore entire phone content (kernel, apps, data, config, ...). That is what I am looking for. I tried Rom Manager but it seems that ClockworkMod does not work with the U8150...
- I guess scripts have to be launched from a linux terminal (Ubuntu OK?) after connecting the U8150 with USB? (should I mount it before?)
- User only has to launch Build-bootimg to create a backup?
- and Unpack-bootimg to restore??
- what about Build-ramdisk?
- I guess the tools mkboot* are called by the scripts and do not have to be launched manually, right?

Thanks for your work and help!

Thanks, this is a big help. Compiling the Froyo kernel source from Huawei was easy, but I was pulling my hair out trying to generate a working boot.img. It's pretty confusing that there are so many unpack/extract/split scripts out there...

Thanks to both you and mt2e over at Modaco for doing the hard work on this one. :)

bootworkspace is in the tarball...

Can anyone please explain me how to use it???:confused:
(Sorry for being a Noob) :(

bootworkspace is inside the tar file, see:
Code:
[[email protected]: ~/Downloads]$ tar ztf BootBuilder-U8150.tar.gz 
BootBuilder-U8150/
BootBuilder-U8150/Tools/
BootBuilder-U8150/Scripts/
BootBuilder-U8150/bootworkspace/
...
...
BootBuilder-U8150/Tools/mkboot/sha.o
BootBuilder-U8150/Tools/mkboot/rsa.h
BootBuilder-U8150/Tools/mkboot/bootimg.h

You have to unzip the tarball and then you'll be able to see the folder. Place your boot.img in there and then you can unpack and repack it using the scripts in the Scripts directory.
