Accessing W25 rw partition externally

Sometimes you may want to read all the files on your router on a desctop computer, you can do it the following way:

  1. Somehow get the binary content of the mtb5 partition (if you have cli access to the router you can use hexdump, or if you have access to the bootloader probably there is also a way to do it)
  2. Convert it to endiannes with jffs2dump -b -c -e output input
  3. Follow the steps here to mount the filesystem: https://wiki.maemo.org/Modifying_the_root_image
It seems that jffs2dump is a bit buggy, so you not always can access all the files.
