Where to get the system.img


I think at installing play store stuff I have overwritten my original saved system.img backup with a corrupt one and now I cannot start aliendalvik engine any more on my Sony Xperia 10 III with latest official update installed.
So I want to extract the file from the fresh downloaded flash image file so I does not must reflash my device.
Where is the system.img stored so I can only install these file by hand? I mounted the sailfish.img001 file from the flash image download but it looks like it is not inside of these file. I wonder me but also reinstall android support does not reinstall the file after moving them to another place.
Nice if someone could give me the steps also to extract them. But to know where it is would be also allready helpfull.


Isn’t the system.img part of AlienDalvik. I would download the aliendalvik files or just try a reinstall.

Take a look at appsupport-system-un
privileged package.

nemo@PGXperiiia10:~ $ rpm -qf /opt/alien/system.img
nemo@PGXperiiia10:~ $ pkcon install --allow-reinstall aliendalvik-system

ls: /opt/alien/system.img: No such file or directory

Any idea? So I though it comes with the flash image.

File is installed after I removed the

pkcon remove appsupport-system-unprivileged

with they’re dependency packages. An installation with

pkcon install appsupport-system-unprivileged aliendalvik

reinstalled the original file.

Thx for suggestions.
