I have a NAND backup of my zaurus that will not restore for some reason back to my zaurus. It is the same exact size as any other NAND image so I assume the data must still be in there. Hopefully there is a way to get it out.

Anyone know of a way to extract it on a linux machine or to even mount the NAND image so I can access it's contents?

Just in case it helps anyone else.

I had a NAND backup of my SL-C3100 which would not restore (and I tried just about everything before discovering this topic).

I restored an old NAND backup, and then used the nand_ripper script to get the root and user partitions from the one which would not restore.

However, instead of mounting them and recovering the data, I copied them to an SD card, booted into console mode ( D and B ), and copied them direct to the mtdblock partitions:
CODE
dd if=/mnt/card/nand_root of=/dev/mtdblock2
dd if=/mnt/card/nand_user of=/dev/mtdblock3


It worked a treat, and I was very relieved!
