Hi to all the Samsung experts, I currently have a Samsung i900 and am looking for a way to extract my rom and create a flashable format. I have used pdocread to extract 3 .raw files but am not sure how to proceed from here. Can anyone advise? Thanks.

Thanks, I have read those threads, problem is you apparently need a flashable .bin to start with which in this case I do not so am looking for a way to use the .raw files only. Do you know if that is possible?

No you don't need the bins, you can start from the raw files.

Just look at the famusc kitchen and read the included instructions.

Ok here is a way to dump the nb file and then dump its contents.I have already done that, including xip :D
Use itsutils and following command in dos window :
psdread -1 0 0xDISKSIZE os.nb

Then use imgfs tools or tazio tools to dump, and further processing.

We need now how to flash back the custom os.nb to omnia
still searching for sd card flashing combinations

@The Solutor: I have read the famusc kitchen docs and it explicity states you need an existing .bin PDA rom. However there are a few commands in there that may be worth checking out.

@hdubli: I will try the command you suggested later today. What are the tazio tools? And dont Samsung phones use .bin files to flash rather than .nb?

You don't need the bin.

Here step by step:

- Downlad and install the kitchen
- Copy Part02.raw into the kitchen folder
- Open cmd and type: ImgfsToDump Part02.raw (This will create dump folder)
- Execute RecreateBin.exe

You got your bin file!!!! ;)

Do you mean RecreateBin.bat? There is no RecreateBin.exe and looking at the contents of the .bat file I dont think it will work as it makes reference to i780 files which I dont have and most likely wont work with the Omnia.

imgfsfromdump imgfs_raw_data.bin new_imgfs.bin
del imgfs_raw_data.bin
ren new_imgfs.bin imgfs_raw_data.bin
make_imgfs i780.nb0.payload.body -nosplit
merge i780.nb0.payload.header i780.nb0.payload.body i780.nb0.payload
nbmerge -data 2048 -extra 8 i780.nb0 -conservative

yes it is the .bat file sorry.
I780 should just be name of the files that you get at the end...
I can't say if it works you just have to give it a try...
But that would be the way we do it with our i780 roms...

Try and report. You should get a i780.bin file.... otherwise it should stop with an error.

it looks like a .bin file and oddly enough executing it changed all my Atom .nb0 files to 'open with' USDL4...

Do kitchen tools exist or Perhaps somebody could be commisioned to make tools for us, I'd be up for that!

I am improving :
C:\12>psdread -1 0 0x8076000 i900XHHG4.nb
remote disk 1 has 65772 sectors of 2048 bytes - 128.46Mbyt
SerialNr: 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
CopySDCardToFile(remote, 1, 0x0, 0x8076000, i900XHHG4.nb)

but I am waiting more than 30 min and no activity. How long does it take to copy 128MB?
