We've finally replaced XDArit and created something much friendlier and much more powerful...

XDAtools

XDAtools is a set of tools that deal with the ROM of your device. As you may know, your little device actually contains two computers, one being a PDA and the other doing all the telephone functions. Presently, XDAtools deals with the ROM of the PDA side of your device only, it does not allow you to do anything to do with phone ROM upgrades (which are also called 'Radio Stack Upgrades' or RSU).



Using the OS Image Tool that is part of XDAtools you can read the Operating System ROM image from the flash-ROM memory of your device to your harddisk, and put another OS image in your device. All of this can be done without using SD-cards for transport. This set of tools will replace our previous tool XDArit as the means of moving ROM images to and from SD-cards, should you want or need to use SD-cards and the bootloader as the means of getting a ROM image in or out of your device. You can even read and write images to and from bootloader SD-cards through ActiveSync while your device still has its OS running.



Start the osimagetool with the argument "--register" to create file associations that will allow you to perform useful actions straight from Windows Explorer.

Also included is a tool to replace a bootloader without ever even leaving the Operating System.


Please note: To be completely functional, the XDAtools would need inclusion of some files from HTC's "Programme A" upgrade package, as well as a v5.15 bootloader image if you want to be able to fix bootloaders. All instructions to do this, as well as README files for the tools and all the sourcecode are in the zip.

Click here to download the latest version (without the extra files needed for flashing to the device directly and for fixing a bootloader)

Good Works
Hi,

Good works for XDA Dev Team. I still confused to use this tools.
SOURCE : from new NK.nbf file we want to upgrade on my device
Destination : what we chose ? device memory

i read on your README File, we just put all Programe A content and bootloader_V5_15.nbo to binaries folder. And if we want to ugrade from PPC 2002 to PPC 2003 we just change the NK.nbf file on the binaries/english

Add to /binaries:

"bootloader_v5_15.nb0"
"Programme A.exe"


Add to /binaries/English:

"CLoader_serial.nb"
"CLoader_usb.nb"
"GetConnectionType.dll"
"NK.nbf"
"remote_flash.exe"
"SetSystemTime.dll"

Please tell me if im wrong because i don't want made the second mistake, and sorry for my english

Thanks

To All XDA-Dev. Great Job!!!! :lol: it is a very nice tool, I can even backup my OS even my XDA is still running, no need for messy booting, inserting/removing SD card. i have only one question, Does it copy also the program I already installed in the XDA or it copy only the files in the ROM?


More power to XDA-Developers. :twisted:

Whoops, NK.nbf should not be in this list. I'll fix that...
