    So having dumped everything, i see no real guide on what to do with it, i see tons of references to FW.IMG -- I see how to dump my NAND.

    How do you get from dump to FW.IMG?

    *Most guides say NOTHING about this, yet people keep making guides... they seem kinda incomplete. Is that on purpose?

    I can only tell you what I'm doing. I'm using CBHC. No need for RedNAND or fw.Img. Follow guide to install Haxchi. The follow guide for CBHC. When you're done you'll be booting into a CFW for sysNAND with sigpatches

    @mixelpixx This guide teaches you on compiling fw.img
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/building-iosuhax-on-windows.447023/

    fw.img can still be useful. Also that doesn't help the OP if he needs specifically fw.img

    just install Haxchi + CBHC CFW... and on boot run Mocha FW.. with the option of mocha (click ON) on REDNAND option and mocha will make you a FW.IMG on your SD.. you dont need a pc i guess.. follow guide correctly.

    Wrong again. Mocha does not create a fw.img, it performs all of the IOS patches itself.
