[android-kernel] Ramdisk extraction error paxchristos Tue Feb 14 18:00:27 2012

Hello, I am trying to take apart the ramdisk for the Casio Commando. I
used a hexeditor to strip off the kernel, and when I tried this
gunzip - c ramdisk.cpio.gz | cpio -i
it gave me this:
gzip: ramdisk not in gzip format
cpio: premature end of archive

I googled this problem, and on a forum somebody suggested doing this:

cat ramdisk.cpio.gz | cpio -i
When I run this i get a screen full of
Cpio malformed numbers
followed by warning archive header has reversed byte order...

Any ideas?
