I'm basing all my work on the tools provided by Ainol (they can create valid, flashable images, murphy666 used that to make his images). But for some weird reason, with the almost exact same setup, mine generates a non-working image, what LiveSuite drops back, as "Invalid Image" (Momo released the latest LiveSuitPack, 1.0.9, what has proper english interface, plus a lot more debugging, it tells me exactly what's the problem, "invalid image"). I'm thinking there might be some signature stuff involved. This is more than possible, as the PhoenixUSBPro tool takes a key file too. Stock images can be flashed with that key, non-stock ones can not be.

The SHA1 checksum of rebuilded image does not match the checksum of the original image.
Flashing the newly created *.img gives the error 'Image file invalid' in the LiveSuite.

Murphy666 used the Ainol provided crane_pack executable to make an image from the compiled AOSP files. Maybe we can analyse this tool?

As far as I know, that tool launches pack.bat, just next to the exe, with matching parameters (path to files, board name, etc). I got the same (tried flashing my semi-dead Aura, it worked with stock images). I'll look into crane_pack.exe, to see how it does what it does.

I am using the Android 2.3 IMG file for the Novo 7 Elf that can be found in the Elf forum. That is what I have been playing with. I wonder if there is a way to override the hash check...

Thanks to FezzFest's discoveries, I finished up a working ICS and GB combined ImageSuite, what can make flashable ICS and GB firmwares.
Big thanks goes to FezzFest (as mentioned) as he made the discovery that unimg.exe can actually reverse the process, thus create a proper image.

Usage:
- Use extract_img.bat [imagefile] to extract the image
- Modify what you want (RFSFAT16 images mostly)
- Use the repacker bats: repack_[version].bat [outimage]

I've tested it with GB, but as there's no ICS for the Aura... But it should work too.
Just modify the part of the repack_xxxx.bat and add-remove FileAddSum lines where it has Verify files (VBOOT, etc)

I am not to worried about ICS right now. I am however currently reflashing my heavily modded image back onto my Elf right now... So far so good... will tell you how it goes :)

EDIT: It is booting! :)

EDIT: You sir... are the man! I have to run right now but I will send over payment later tonight. Thank you a ton!

Cheers!

Hi, could you please tell me what could I change to an stock ICS ROM for the Novo 7 Avdanced, to make touchscreen work in an OEM novo 7 Advanced? What are the changeable parameters to configure the touchscreen drivers? Every ROM I try works but the touch system is inverted. I'm receiving a GB original ROM for my device, could I look for the driver info in this ROM and then apply it to the Ainol Official ICS ROM???


Thank you for your big effort.

My guess is you would have to have both Image files. You would pull the appropriate drivers from the one and put them in the other. You would have to unpack both and repack both using this tool. The nice thing is that at least you wouldn't have to compile everything from scratch and can now (thanks to all the hard work that has been done on here by Ainolmodder and others) instead modify existing known-good firmware.

OKAY - PAID! I did the full $65 even though I haven't tested with an ICS image. I hope you will be around though in case I need more help with it lol.

Also, this whole "bounty" system worked delightfully well and as I encounter more issues and problems I foresee paying out more money to forum users like yourself who are willing to help. All for money motivation lol :)

Cheers and thanks a ton!

Of course I'm here, I'm now trying to reverse engineer the unimg.exe, and create an image making C# code what would accompany my code so far (made some stuff, replaced most of the Ainol tools, etc).

Ran into an issue with a Ployer Momo 9 image. I am working on the /system file after having extracted the image. I mounted the file in Linux. So far so good. Then I run into this problem. If I delete out apps... it doesn't free up space. I can delete 70 MB worth of apps and the free space does not change. This is a problem when there is only 53 MB available to begin with :(. Any thoughts?

Mount -t ext4 /somefolder/file someotherfolder/folder/ -o loop

that is the command i am using to mount...

Thanks,

This has NO virus in it I can assure everyone. It's the script in unimg.exe - it is heuristically identified as a malware, as it uses a malware-like code to scramble through the image file.

This is outstanding! Can't wait to see some mashups on here of different ROMS. Guess this means someone could release a better version of ICS for the Momo9 before Ployer releases one toward the end of the month... Now it's just a matter of touchscreen drivers on most devices. Haven't tried it yet, but I will eventually.
My Current Tablets:
Renesas Dual/A9 Android 2.2
Rexing V7/Android 4.0.3 (basically a A10 Ployer Momo9)
Cube U18GT Elite--RK3066 Dual Core

Cube U18GT Elite thread


SausageScript for the RK3066 tablets, based on the Cube U18GT 1.06 firmware, still useful for many RK3066 tablets and possibly others

Guide to extended market access, updated on occaision useful for many Android versions
