Making sense of the Elite

Postby BobC » August 29th, 2012, 10:49 am

I noticed that on my Elite booting into Recovery mode did nothing other than a normal boot so I got round to doing an image backup of the device, using as a guide one of suggsy's posts.

The result was the following files:
Code: Select all
----rwxr-x system   sdcard_rw 16777216 2012-08-29 10:46 nanda.img
----rwxr-x system   sdcard_rw  2097152 2012-08-29 10:47 nandb.img
----rwxr-x system   sdcard_rw 33554432 2012-08-29 10:48 nandc.img
----rwxr-x system   sdcard_rw 409600000 2012-08-29 10:49 nandd.img
----rwxr-x system   sdcard_rw 1073741824 2012-08-29 10:52 nande.img
----rwxr-x system   sdcard_rw  1048576 2012-08-29 10:53 nandf.img
----rwxr-x system   sdcard_rw 33554432 2012-08-29 10:54 nandg.img
----rwxr-x system   sdcard_rw 268435456 2012-08-29 10:55 nandh.img


which I have now preserved. There is another nand block - nandi which was taking so long to copy I gave up on it.

The problem for me is I don't know what the blocks are - looking at them with a hex viewer about the only one I can make sense of is nanb which seems to be a boot partition. nandf seems to be virtually blank - filled with h00 and hFF. Can anyone give me a clue as to where to find out what they all are and how I can use one of them in case I need to completely restore my device should I ever need to.

I think its like this....

nanda - bootloader
nandb- u-boot
nandc - kernel
nandd - system
nande - data
nandf - misc
nandg - recovery
nandh - cache
nandi - sdcard

Thanks for that - I suspected nandi was the sdcard and trying to copy an image of it to my 16Gb external sdcard was likely to be a problem :-) and about as much use as a chocolate fireguard.
