Implemented in X-Loader & NOLO :-(

Okay. In that case it is fairly difficult to reverse-engineer it. Bummer.

What about documentation, is there some comprehensive explanation about the workings of the whole flashing chain in Harmattan?

What is the function of the different parts of the flashing process, for example what is the APE algorithm that is needed, for example when flashing only the kernel image? I tried googling for that but no success really?

I pushed package to extras-devel & extras-testing, so limited operations can be also done on device.

I discovered that it is easy to create rootfs backup with this tool so If anyone is interested:
First use 0xFFFF -e to dump all images. It will partially fail because of not enough memory to dump emmc but kernel and rootfs will be dumped. Then create fiasco image from dumped files:
0xFFFF -m 2.6.28:kernel:kernel-RX-51_2.6.28-20103103\+0m5 - m rootfs:rootfs-RX-51_RX-51_2009SE_21.2011.38-1_PR_MR0 -g fiasco.image.
