img files and install from fastboot?

  • I am completely comfortable with flashing OS's via fastboot. Is it possible to lay hands on .img files which can be directly flashed onto the device?

  • Ok, dug through the source to obports-installer, looks like most of the goodies hang off of:

    In particular:

    which tells you where to get bits for various versions. The latest, currently 72, says that there's bits at :


    which, once you pull it and "xzcat device-e3* | tar -xvf -" will give you boot, recovery, and system img files. I booted just to the bootloader and fastboot flash'ed those partitions, and my phone still boots OK. So I guess I'm at least sorta on the right track....
