[Gsmmap] about extracting img file

Dear Omid,

There are several windows tools that offer the same functionality as dd.

A short google search revealed the following 2 promising candidates:

Option 1: DD for Windows

This definitely works, but more complicated to use
I found a very detailed tutorial, which explains the preparation of a Raspberry Pi SD-card. The procedure is exactly the same:

Option 2: Live System Creator for Windows

This should work and is rather self-explanatory.

Please read the instructions carefully and make sure you understand them, before you issue dd commands – you may harm other existing drives in your computer.

Best regards,
