ALL WINNER A13 ROM DUMPER (Rom Backup)
-This tool dumps the firmware of your A13 onto your PC using ADB.
-If you are not familiar with ADB seek the web for more info.
-This dump requires to have an SD card mounted in the device with at least 512MB free space available.
-Note that this dump is not a ROM that you can flash, however with the ROM kitchen it's possible to rebuilt a flashable ROM
using the files from the dump.
What does it do:
-Uses ADB (included in the package) to dump the entire content of the A13 that has been connected
-Makes a dump on the device's SD card and then pulls it to your local computer

I tried this rom dumper to make a backup of my a13 tablet for my future use if something goes wrong with my tab. But I have some question around my head, what specific kitchen should I use to make it flashable with livesuite. Thank you very much.

How to set up ADB
Important: This is needed for almost everything posted here.
1. Turn USB debugging on, then connect the tablet to your PC.
2. Download ADB and the ADB drivers.
3. The ADB driver program should automatically install the needed drivers for your tablet.
4. Extract ADB.zip to C:/. That's it, you've set up ADB.

2. Place the recovery.img to your tablet's internal memory. It should be under /mnt/sdcard.
3. Open NovoTools and touch "Flash recovery".
4. NovoTools should display a confirmation. To check, click "Enter recovery mode".
How to install or restore a firmware dump
1. Extract your dump files at the root of your microSD card. You should see bootloader.img, boot.img, data.tgz, recovery.img and system.tgz. Insert the card into the tablet.

3. Navigate to mounts and storage.
4. Using a command prompt, type adb shell.
5. Format everything except /sdcard and /sd-ext.
6. Mount everything except /sd-ext.
7. Enter the following commands on the command prompt.
cat /sdcard/bootloader.img > /dev/block/nanda
cat /sdcard/boot.img > /dev/block/nandc
busybox tar -C /system/ -zxvf /sdcard/system.tgz
