    OH, OH, OH im genious !
    -RomDump: Done
    -RomExtraction: Done
    -RomFlash: Pending
    Rom details:
    img: 58,7 MB
    Extracted img: 119 MB
    It was so simple !
    Here is my image: http://rapidshare.com/files/220900596/ipaq214.rar.html http://www.megaupload.com/?d=DAK6TCXS
    To unpack it: CMD "imgfstodump ipaq214.img"
    You will get "dump" folder
    The solution was:
    pdocread -l
    pdocread -w -d DSK1: -b 0x800 -p Part00 0 0x17f000 Part00.raw
    pdocread -w -d DSK1: -b 0x800 -p Part01 0 0x220000 Part01.raw
    pdocread -w -d DSK1: -b 0x800 -p Part02 0 0x39e0000 Part0.raw
    Here is XIP dump:

    cooking is simple - it is only needed to repleace sys folder i think, the oem folder should stay becouse it contain drivers and all customizations

    Hi, could you share with us the steps you done to dump the ROM to be able to reproduce it?
    Did you used Linux tools? And what about ROM extra bytes for bad block management? And what about flashing?

    Then, when you have extracted Partxx.raw files how to access the filesystem in it? I mean can I extract wince system files, replace/add new files and pack it back ro *.raw file? what tools to use?

    Sorry, I don't know much wince internals but I still can't clarify it to me.
    There are multiple levels of packing or ecapsulation. I guess: At the beginning we have some directory structure with files on builder's PC. Then we packed the wince files to filesystem images (patxx.raw) - what FS wince use? FAT16/32 or some specific? Then you pack this parts to one image that can be flashed to NAND flash. At the lowest level you have NANDflash image with bootloader and some bad block management data - that we get from linux dump. Am I right?

    And for what the .nb file is good? I know it can be loaded from SD card. Can it hold the entire wince or just some kernel? If yes then it would be nice for testing our builds instead of long flashing.
