update.img decompilation and editing

Post by tymchn »

Hello,

Just bought the Arnova 10 G2 and I am looking to cut my teeth on developing for it. I am especially interested in rom/kernel development. I am inspired by the activites of others who are working hard on developing customs roms to enable root and the android market. I feel I should be pulling my weight and helping out a bit.

Does anyone know of any handy guides for modifying the update.img file? Those guides with an Arnova/Archos view would be most appreciated.

Cheers :D

You need Wendal's updated AFPTool.

See this post leading to this software.
I don't have an Arnova, but I unpacked the images to have a look at them and see whether I could use them for my A7HTV2 roms.

Based on this software it should be easy to create a rooted custom rom with google apps.
