    So how would I go about extracting it. I've been looking around, and many sites say disassemble my device to find the part number, then flush it or something. What does this mean?

    I don't know. You should ask whatever site is telling you to do this. This is not something Linux can do for you.

    Generally speaking, you might be able to open your device, and id the part number of the ROM holding the firmware. If you can ID that part, then you might be able to find a diagram / pinout for that device, put it on another board (or alter the current one), hook it up to a serial cable and extract the ROM. That is outside of the scope of information you will generally get from this forum, however.
