NO I will use a PC and save the files to the PC or a sdcard as you said.
I want to access the raw system files and partitions of the nvram on the nexus 7 save the files/partition portition of the fastboot loader. All devices in general have some type of bootloader such as modems etc.
No one has been able to figure out how to restore a bricked bootloader on the Nexus 7. At that point the Nexus 7 screen is black nothing no graphics, but you can most liklely still access the nvram via usb using another device such a Bus Pirate or Arduino and save the file structure from the N7 back to the PC or sdcard, prior to bricking the device.
Is the MEga overkill for this or will it even work with the Mega or any of the arduuino prodocts? In other words would a simple uno board, Bus Pirate or simple a Serial TTL/USB board do the job?
I would hate to buy the Mega ADK to find out this is impossible to do. I know the Mega ADK was meant to use as an API layer with IDE type software.
I am talking about taking it to a root level/terminal command driven way.
I hope someone can answer this for me. I am ready to order the product soon.
