So, method you guys told me definitely works. The micro sd addapter was getting the information, but it takes to much time and I dont have the patient to leave my GBZ pluged in more than four hours when I touch it and feel that is overheating :roll:
after the command dd with the 1M took forever as well, I guess this method would work for someone with a smaller micro SD cart... I tried making an image of the micro SD cart after 4 hours of leaving the pi doing it thing and it didnt boot.
So the method works but I wouldnt recommend it for some one with a micro sd bigger than 8G (please correct me on the comments if I am wrong).
So I ordered a ribbon cable and i will make some modifications to my case in order to reach the micro sd card without having to open the case.

Thank you very much for your help guys!
