need help with extracting u-boot.bin
« on: July 09, 2013, 09:12:52 PM »
Hey,

got myself a iriver cover story a few months ago.
would like to hack the thing, since it's linux based.
however, except for some *.feb files , the zImage en u-boot.bin
everything was a success.  The zImage is almost complete, but the u-boot.bin
is a problem.

/opt/firmware-mod-kit/trunk/extract-firmware.sh u-boot.bin

when typing;
file u-boot.bin

it return this;
u-boot.bin: data


anyone know how to decompress the damn file?
thanks in advance
