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:

    https://system-image.ubports.com

    In particular:

    https://system-image.ubports.com/ubports-touch/16.04/devel/hammerhead/index.json

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

    /pool/device-e34756d822387fa9371568fa42292f8baf76d79ec7f2cee0f5c002b909dc08f5.delta-device-cc610cfc131187e182588a0f9c7c5c23ba769679708a4ba08b16878f4e93c101.tar.xz

    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....
