Can anybody write some information: what is written in each file of jet's firmware and for what each file is responsible?

Unless using RevSkills, there is no way to do that. The information you are requesting is Samsung's proprietary code.

decompress apps_compressed.bin file with QuB

Hi,

with some help from Rebellos and other people from the xda forum I found a way to uncompress the apps_compressed.bin file inside the firmware packages.

The tool to do this is called QuB. It can be downloaded from this website. More infos on using this tool can be found here.

After downloading and unpackig just launch QuB.exe.

In order to start using QuB I recommend switching it to English (unless you can read the russion UI). Here is how to do this:
  • First: select the "Settings" icon from the menu to the left.
  • Second: select English from the menu on the right

In order to decompress an apps_compressed.bin file you need to do the following:
  • 1. Select "Tools" from the left menu
  • 2. Make sure "APPS" is selected
  • 3. Check both "Decrypt" and "Decompress"
  • 4. Open an input file
  • 5. Push the "Start decompress" button and select an output file. Happy Decompressing

The tool looks like it can do much more with the firmware files but deompressing the compressed apps image was all I needed it for.

Cheers,
Dopi :)
