I've got the Prestigio MultiPhone 5430. It's built on Intel Medfield platform. The phone isn't popular as it was released about 6-7 months ago.
Because (as far as I know) nobody before me has tried to hack into it, I'm seriously interested in getting this model's recovery and bootloader partition to have any modding start-point. I've already searched for any clues in
xxxx.fstab and in
/proc partition, however that research yielded nothing.
What I already know is:
- The DROIDBOOT is locked and doesn't accept any fastboot commands besides some basic info commands like
oem erase. I'm trying to guess possible commands.
- I'm not sure about the partition layout, devices are identified like
mmcblkXpYwhere X is device number and Y is partition number.
- The recovery seems like it's a really limited CWM recovery; allows only to install updates from ZIP and reboot, but does not allow backing up whole filesystem.
- Another way to flash bootloader is to use Intel SoC Manufacturing Tool and Medfield board drivers I got from Intel support (they actually responded and even provided some useful usage info), but then, I would have to get a bulk-upgrade file, like .KDZ for LG.
The partition layout in FSTAB file is:
/reserved hidden /dev/block/mmcblk0_none none size_hint=164 /panic raw /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 none size_hint=8 /factory ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p2 none size_hint=32 /config ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p3 none size_hint=16 ro [then nothing helpful: media - mmcblk0p5, cache - mmcblk0p6] /logs ext4 /dev/block/mmcblk0p7 none size_hint=16 ro [and then nothing really interesting, down to mmcblk0p9, then sdcard begins]
It's interesting that
mmcblk0_none doesn't exist in
/dev/block, at least at runtime. Another interesting fact is that some parts of
init.rc were copied straight from Acer Liquid C1, as far as I can deduce from comment left-overs.
Is it possible the system is hiding some partitions from me? If so, how can I reveal them? Can I get service documentation for this Prestigio model anywhere? Has anyone done any research on this before?
I'd really appreciate pointing me into the correct direction, because I'm in dead-end of this research for about a week already.
Oh, and I already tried asking Prestigio support. They didn't answer (such a surprise!).
