the problem was i intented to update the firmware, i copy the files to sd card and restart the unit, the unit projected on the screen these lines
please pop the sdmmc card and reset the unit
and then i restart the unit, but has never started. starts now does nothing, if I connect it to pc just turns the LED battery charge. if I hold down the start button for 30 seconds the pc does not recognize a USB device.
there any way to load the firmware? or is dead and useless?
if anyone has a method to unbrick, pleaseee tell me.
I am after some help. I purchase 3 GPS units from dealsextreme same as smartufo posted about in first page
I changed maps from USA to OZ in igo8 on first 2 no problems.When i did 3 unit i left room will files loading and forgot about it.When i came back next morning computer had gone so sleep.I disconnected gps and turn on but it is stuck on first screen with car and windmill.I have tried loading files YFUpdate/yfospa06.img/YFAPP.wzp on to cf card and hard reset however nothing happens.Does this mean i have to do a reg and disk format.
Does any body know how to change the boot image on this device. DealExtreme: $62.88 4.3" LCD Windows CE 5.0 Core GPS Navigator with FM Transmitter (2GB SD Card)
The link says CE 5.0 but it is actually CE 6.0 in Chinese and it also has the iphone type navigation menu.

Sorry just figured it out so you can ignore the above. If anybody else is wondering you need to create an image that is 480x272 and 24bit colour and call it Logo82f.bmp and put this on an empty sd card and it should update.

Hi, I have (semi)bricked my GPS device by installing MioPocket. It's SKU 45498
Win CE 6.0
rom version : PF08.2020.29M7588H
If someone know where i can download the correct firmware and other files needed to flash my GPS, please give me the links.

"on a side note i too have done the same thing with miopocket , it seems to install ok but when you reboot......your stuck on the welcome screen and that's it. the fix is actually in the registry but seeing as you have no reg backup either a firmware flash is the only way to go."
Soon i will have registry backup from the same device,(not bricked), is it possible to use that to unbrick my gps without flashing? ActiveSync connection is working.
Ok, I got the registry backup image from the same gps device created with ceRegistryEditor,should i just use the restore option and restore that image to my device?
I tried but i am not sure how to restore the image.
I go to Tools>Backup/Restore>Restore image and i get this message "To restore registry image, please go to "Compare->Compare registry" menu or press F3. I press F3, I browse to the backup image, it shows Total different keys 984.When i click on the Apply button it says "Please select something".
In the Select menu there are 2 options, Select All Values and Select All Keys, which one i need to choose?
Select All Keys
Can someone guide me step by step through the process of restoring the backup image with ceRegistryEditor,I never used this program and the procedure is kinda tricky.English is not my native language, sorry for the grammar.Thanks in advance.
Ok, I have successfully restored my device,I will post later the details, I am too tired, almost 48 hours over the 28 pages of this forum and Google.This is my device
rom version : PF08.2020.29M7588H
I have NDump bin files from my (new)device
and I will upload this files later if someone needs them.Thanks for your help.
The best forum ever.
hi, i found this program SiRFSoCMgr.exe that seems to be reload rom to unit that have an atlas IV procesor, i try to run it but my gps dont connect via usb, i cannot install usb drivers for my gps the windows says that an unknown device. my system is 64 bits. im desperate whit it.
i intented to load a new bootloader but i dont know how to do it.
SKU 45498 DealExtreme: $102.27 6.2" LCD Windows CE 6.0 Core 500MHz GPS Navigator w/FM Transmitter + Built-in 4GB Memory USA Map
rom version : PF08.2020.29M7588H
Ok, Here is what I've done
1.Installed MioPocket v3,0 -> Bricked My device
2.I was able to boot to the main menu but nothing was working on the device (I later realized that just the touch screen was not working)
3.I did have Working ActiveSync connection
4.After reading the 28 pages of this forum several times and Googling around for 48 hours...
5.I was ready to flash my device with the new firmware i found here on the forum
6.I had a extra new SKU45498 device and got from that one the ceRegistryEditor backup image
7.After looking in the differences in the images from my bricked and my new device i saw this registry key
bricked device registry http://imageupload.org/?di=312964351047
new device registry http://imageupload.org/?di=9129643524315
8. I saw the differences and i thought to myself why not give it a try
9. So I deleted the "DriverName REG_CZ cgrtouch.dll", than soft reset the device an guess what
10.Everything was ok.I just performed another "Restore to Factory Defaults" from the menu, recalibrated the screen and worked like a charm.
11.My ceRegistry backup images are now identical from the bricked and the new GPS device.
I will upload the files later (Part00.bin, Part01.bin, Part03.bin,ceRegistryEditor backup image and ResidentFlash2 partition)
the funny thing is that the firmware i download to the seller's website after I wrote him and replied saying that they dint support the firmware update and make an update i lost the warranty.
thanks for your words, if you found something i'll be very grateful.
