splitdns323fw - extract data from DNS-323 (and other) firmware images


splitdns323fw [-k KERNEL] [-i INITRD] [-d DEFAULTS] firmwarefile


splitdns323fw parses an existing firmware image for a device such as the D-Link DNS-323, DNS-321, and Conceptronics CH3SNAS.

By default, if only the firmwarefile option is given, the script verifies the checksums of the included components and prints a bunch of useful info about the image. If you specify one or more of the other options, however, the corresponding section of the firmware image will be written to that file.

-k kernel, --kernel=kernel

Write the kernel part of the firmware image to the specified file.

-i initrd, --initrd=initrd

Write the initrd part of the firmware image to the specified file.

-d defaults.tar.gz, --defaults=defaults.tar.gz

Write the defaults part of the firmware image to the specified file.


E-mail bug reports to I don't guarantee to be able to help, but I'll give it a shot. Patches are far more helpful.
