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

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.

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)
