First use pdocread -l to get the exact positions of the described parts (marked in bold)

AFAIK: No

Part00: (don't know but too small for radio)
Part01: XIP (OS Kernel-like part)
Part02: customization of ROM (i.e. language files, integrated programs and components)
Part03: storage memory of the device (i.e. the part of memory where you install your programs etc.)

@fktsndr: Thank you SO much! This is exactly what i'm looking for! 'cause i've entered pda world just 15 days ago.

I've just upgraded my polaris to hard spl + wm6.1 (new rom) + new radio rom and all goes well.


Is there a "reputation" mechanism on this forum?

Note: your english is better than mine

HTC Touch Cruise (aka Polaris aka P3650)
- Hard-SPL v2.20.olipro | Bepe 0.67 Premium ROM | Radio 1.64.08.21 | Voip working & tons of tweaks
--Still no accelerated video drivers (HTC & Qualcomm failure)

I now that this is a stupid question but I have tried to find the answer but when you say 'unpack to a folder' (rom & radio), which folder should it go to . I have downloaded the .rar files but don't know where to put the so they are picked up by flashing process.

You should use for example 7-zip, It is a free and can handle rar files. Open the rar file with it, and you can set the folder to extract.

Default Boot loader

I tryed to install a cooked rom on my touch cruise but the device doesn't remain on boot (with the colors on) . I don't understand how to update to a newer cooked rom from that state, i did exactly as it was posted on the thread but the setup does not start.

Can anyone please help me ?

Thanks in advance

In this case, you did not exactly the posted method

So..

Press and hold camer button. Press reset with stylus for a second (but do not release camera button, until you will see the bootlader)
