(adding examples some day here). Those are used in the recovery mode.
But what about those situations when the recovery doesn't work?
And device isn't rooted. Then this new dumper could save the day.
It's basically a CWM recovery run by using the Pad Product Tool.
See the Readme.txt file included (and below) for more info.
Warning! Don't use this if the device works okay. The partitions
can be dumped using recovery or by adb if firmware is rooted,
that is if adb root or su works. See the next post too.
(to extract, remove ".7z" from the end and run)
Pad Product Tool Dumper for ATM7029
As usual, no guarantee of any kind.
Use at your own risk.
Meant to be used when the tablet isn't rooted
and recovery is not available. This doesn't
help in those cases when a wrong firmware has
been flashed. (internal memory can be saved
if flash has not been erased - maybe).
The dumped partitions can then be examined
and possibly a new firmware can be created.
Also booting problems might be fixed with ADB.
This might not work in every 7029 out there.
Uses the modules of Ainol Crystal2.
Enables the dumping of the partitions and also the
usage of the ADB. Flash using the Pad Product Tool.
If dump-these.txt is in the root of the sd card,
partitions listed are dumped automatically
to the sd card.
The screen will not work but the tablet will
vibrate when the BNMGUY's CWM based recovery
(with my modifications) starts. Also short
buzzes are given when partition is dumped.
Longer when the dump is done.
