HOWTO extract the PRS-T1.package
I don't know if all this will be ever useful to someone (and if someone has done this before)... I have made a script which extract the PRS T1.package from a generic update...
Currently it can't compress but only extract.
you can find it here http://dl.dropbox.com/u/158338/ebook...ct-package.zip
it works only in a linux environment.
- put a dump of the first 20mb of the internal sd (mmcblk2p) in the dev/ folder.
- put the .package file in the main folder
- run the extract script
it would be useful to generate automated script, like dumping all partitions without using the recovery shell, etc..
it is generated also an rsa key. It is stored in the first sector of the T1. I don't if it is useful for other purposes other than update extraction..

Hey meltdown thanks so much for the tools!
I've been trying to test decompress some sample updater made by others like the minimal-root PRS-T1 Updater.
But I keep running into errors. Just so you know I'm running under mingw msys.
I had to make afew small changes to get it running like replace hexdump with xxd and remove the -of parameter from dd. But it looks like it works well (except for this one issue). Perhaps my mmcblk2 is not right? But I think one of the earlier on decryptions should have failed if the keys were bad.
I would really appreciate if you could let me know what do you think might be the cause?
Here is a link to the zip with the file containing the modified source and the updater as well as the mmcblk2.
