What is an SPARSEFS file?

More Information

SPARSEFS is designed to hold a file system, which is used to emulate the embedded MultiMediaCard (eMMC). The folder most likely contains the root filesystem (root.fs), the kernel (kernel.elf), the initrd file (initrd.img), and the "custpack" (prebundled.fs).
