Update to version 3.7

Lots of improvement.

Archived Changelog

What's new:

  1. * Removed minigzip, since it is not used anymore in android building.
  2. * For linux I've built static fakeroot module to deal with special ramdisk folders.
  3. * Fixed, cleaned and optimized all modules for an increased speed in unpacking and repacking images.
  4. * Rewrite the scripts to accomodate the new binaries and made it better.
  5. * Added the option to choose the compression level for ramdisk repacking.
  6. * For vendor ramdisk fragments I added the option to choose the compression level for each one. That was necessary more for the repacking with same compression level as original, and I saw on some images that the first ramdisk fragment was packed with fast compression and the second with best. If there is no need for this you can simply type same level at prompt and get it done.

IMPORTANT:

Of course, as before, I couldn't test the kitchen with real android 12 -14 devices, I mean with boot headers from 2 to 4 or with vendor boot images. All my tests are theoretical, unpacking repacking, verify with python scripts from android source, verify with hex viewer and so on. From this point of view, everything works, but a real life test will be better. This tool is intended for advanced users or technicians who supposed to know what they are doing.

For messages, anyone can use my contact form or the mailto link, and I will answer, but not instantaneously because I have a day to day job and other things to do besides this.

I need to say it: I made this tool working many hours, and I am posting it for free, without receiving anything from all those who are using it. All I am asking is just to post links to my webpage instead of uploading it on other websites. As you can see I don't have advertising or other ways to monetize this. I'm paying for my hosting and other services with my own money from my day to day job, and I don't like to see my work posted on other websites where they use monetizing systems. I have also a gihub account and If I wanted to be posted there I could've done it myself.
