    i brick my newman, so i need a dump of bootloader for create (can be) a micro sd card recovery.

    so, i need a bootloader dump :

    could you do it for me and post the link please :)

    on adb :
    Invoke "adb root"
    Invoke "adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0boot0 of=/sdcard/bootloader.img bs=1024 count=4096"
    Invoke "adb pull /sdcard/bootloader.img"

    probably change path /sdcard with /sdcard/ext_sd if you are not enough place on sdcard

    post bootloader.img here please

    Thank you in advance

    You need to be rooted, busybox installed and in Terminal Emulator give the commands:
    Code:
    su
    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0boot0 of=/sdcard/bootloader.img bs=1024 count=4096
    after that bootloader.img created in your SD

    Not. Exactly, that's his problem. I'm not sure that the method is good. May be that a key combination whit a time should suffice. Should arrive to connect on uart for viewing cpu messages

    me too, my freelander i20 does not work, I deleted the bootloader. The phone is not in warranty and the seller does not want anything. Any idea?
