If you have made an image of a PARTITION, convertfromraw will not work and other methods are needed.

".IMG format" (I think) sometimes means different things to different imaging programs.
Is ODIN .IMG format a sector by sector raw copy, or some other type of ODIN specific format, perhaps one that excludes unused
sectors?
