reworked the Error Handling mechanics in ISP eMMC reading code. Now errors are handled in smart way, when read errors happen, plugin automatically re-reads erroneous address as many times as needed until the read happens without errors This greatly increases plugin ISP read stability, and allows working even with very poor quality of ISP connection;
the counter of I/O read errors happened during operation is added to the plugin main window status bar.
added Backup partitions feature: For this, select needed partitions, right-click with mouse, and choose ‘Backup partitions’. This will extract current data from partitions and store contents into single file. This backup can be restored later with ‘Load Backup File…’ right-click feature.
added ‘Used Size’ column into the parsed partitions list window
partitions extraction (like save Partition, save Selected Partitions, etc) algorythm is changed: now are to be saved only used part of partition (specified by used size), the remaining of allocated partition bytes are not saved.
added UFS-based devices support for Repair Packages
interface skin is updated
some other fixes applied.
JTAG Manager 1.88
global CTRL+A shortcut is added to start eMMC Plugin
global CTRL+E shortcut is added to start Edit Package

JTAG Manager now supports Windows 10 high-resolution screens (DPI settings from 100 to 300% were tested, and interface looks nice and smooth)
Added ‘Recalculate GPT’ action to Package (PKG) Manager. Starting from current JTAG Manager version, packages with this action can be created/executed
Added ‘Erase Flash Memory via ISP/USB’ action to Package (PKG) Manager. Starting from current JTAG Manager version, packages with this action can be created/executed
Added ‘Reset USB Loader’ action to Package (PKG) Manager. Starting from current JTAG Manager version, packages with this action can be created/executed
“Save to File” button on eMMC Read/Write and USB Read/Write is changed to “Show HEX” button when SHIFT key is pressed. “Show HEX” button will open hex window with data from previous read operations.
added feature to wait for Qualcomm Emergency Download Mode (EDL) when booting devices through this mode;
improved the box firmware update process.
fixed eMMC Erase: any erase (from JTAG Manager eMMC Read/Write page) were performed on User Area Partition, no matter what partition was selected in the JTAG Manager;
Tthe “eMMC Partition Table FullFlash Image Files Processing Plugin ” is now renamed to “eMMC/UFS partition manager” !!!!!!
Plugin interface was reworked slightly in order to be usable as well by users which have low-resolution screens, like 1280×720, etc
Main menu is modified
Added ‘Options’ to main menu, Show Gaps, Prefer EFI and etc checkboxes are moved to this menu.
Added feature to show/hide HEX content panels – this may be handly for low-resolution screens, so user can hide hex panels in order to be able to see more crucial partitions layout columns To Hide/Show use shortcut [CTRL+T] or [Menu->Show/Hide HEX Panels].
Added remove FRP function;
Added Factory Reset function;
Added [Load Backup File] option to the right-click context menu of the parsed partitions list. Currently, backups are created during the FRP and Master Reset operations. In order to restore backup, right-click anywhere in the parsed partitions list, chose [Load Backup File…] and select backup file (Backups are created in JTAG Manager’s BackFiles folder). The data from backup is automatically injected into proper partitions, modified partitions are selected (marked with blue color), cursor is automatically moved to the first modified partition, and all is ready to be flashed using the [Flash Selected] buttons.
Added feature to undesrtand ANSI named parttions for GPT-partitioned images (Philips Android TV and similar)
Fixed bug when preview image panel in file browser was trying to load incorrect image and stopped responding after this.
EXT4 features added:
Added feature to view properties of EXT4 Files/Directories/Root Directory (for this, right click on parsed EXT4 object and select ‘Properties…’);
Added feature to change UNIX atrributes: like Owner/Group/Others Read/Write/Execute rights, GID, UID, Set-to-execute bits (SGID, SUID).
Added feature to change extended attributes field in EXT4 File Systems
Added feature: after parsing partition with supported file system, it is possible now to search all parsed files to contain a specified ASCII/Hexadecimal string; For this Right click on parsed tree and select “Search File Contents> or while Files Tree is active press CTRL+H. To continue next search, while Files Tree is active or Files HEX window is active, press F3
Added feature: after parsing partition with supported file system, it is possible now to search for a specified file/directory name For this Right click on parsed free and select “Search for File/Directory” or while Files Tree is active press CTRL+F. To continue next search, while Files Tree is acitve, press F3
Fixed EXT4 file system read files bug: big files, or defragmented files, which data owned more than one extent’s leaf node of level depth 1 and deeper, the contents of extracted/read file were corrupted.
Added create directory in partition with EXT4 File System
Added upload file into partition with EXT4 File System
Added feature to show unused space of partitions which host supported File Systems (EXT4, FAT16, FAT32, etc.)
Improved parsing of EXT4 file systems – more checks are added, thus in case the image file is broken, plugin will be able to parse as much as possible without access violation errors
Fixed Direct/Indirect block addressing for EXT4 iNodes (full scheme is implemented)
Improved HEX windows (in partition list page and files system browsing page), keyboard navigation, selection is added so it is possible to use HEX windows as simplified HEX editor
Added feature to save selected partitions – for this, select those partitions you need to save into files, and then right click and choose ‘Save Selected Partitions…’
When extracting partition, default prefix is automatically filled into the Save Dialog’s name field, this simplifies the operation.
Improved parsing of GPT layout in case list of partitions is not consistent and intermittent
Supported parsing GPT/EFI image with entries containing MTK’s relative partitions
Fixed wrong parse of PIT-partitioned file in case when ‘Prefer the EFI Partitioning’ is checked and no EFI info is found.
Fixed errors when parsing small-sized partitions (like Boot Partition) directy from device (Parse Connected Memory)
Fixed bug when no known layout was detected on connected memory (Parse Connected Memory) – the plugin was making single partition as ‘IMAGE_FILE’ but size was incorrectly set to 0. now size is correct and equals the phisical size of the parsed partition.
Added ‘Stop Operation’ button to progress window, so now user can terminate unintended long operations
GUI Changes: – eMMC/SD Advanced window resized to fit smaller screen resolution, most used functions buttons moved to bottom of interface, – Added shortcut button for eMMC/UFS partition manager to “Resurrection” TAB, – Available frequencies list shortened, added 102 MHz and 204 MHz ,
New functionalities added: – eMMC Advanced Dialog: [eMMC Write Test] button is added This performs the operation to check if current eMMC is healthy and is not Write Blocked. – eMMC Advanced Dialog: [Write EXTCSD Register] button is functional now: this will write all writeable EXT_CSD fields to the eMMC. – When connecting to eMMC Memory, health status is now displayed too – When connecting to eMMC Memory, 16-byte hex string value of CID and CSD registers is now displayed too – Improved function of Open eMMC Info File button on the eMMC Advanced Actions form. Now selecting file type on Open File dialog will execute appropriate routine to load the file’s contents depending on format of file – USB Mode support for MT6575 is added – Improved USB booting of MTK devices for both DA types – DAs which report NAND size as 32-bit and DAs which report NAND size as 64-bit integers – Added HS200 mode support for 5.0 and 5.1 eMMC chips
