How to add 'Android Nougat +vTV' Image to Krescue Rescue SD Card?

Hi all,

The last bundled Android and vTV image i’ve found is at:
Android/Nougat + vTV on VIM2 Image

Can i just copy this over the the ‘Dumps’ partition on my Krescue SD for installation onto the eMMC of my VIM2 ?

See screenshot below…

Cheers, Michael.

@michaelnewham krescue doesn’t directly flash *.img images, it can only flash *.kresq containter files and *.img.xz (which is made in a special way), to do that you have to use this script to convert the image to that special format which krescue can use:

please note: normal xz compression WILL NOT work.

simple way

  1. write needed image to emmc by standard method
  2. start krescue and make a dump image from emmc

*.img its just file name extension - and can have any format

Krescue can write *.img.gz *.img.xz *.img.zst *.img.zip - compressed raw images - and *.kresq - special advanced container

yes need special prepared xz
