Goldcard Creation Difficulties
Myself and many others have been having troubles figuring out exactly how to make goldcards, so I figured I'd start this thread up to get some sort of collaboration going. I originally posted this in the Mytouch Root thread until I remembered that in the original post it had stated to take questions regarding goldcard creation elsewhere.
Here's my original post, quote from the previous question included:

Is there any way to document what microSD cards work and do not work as a gold card? So far I have tried 3 different cards, all with no luck:
Class 1 1GB Nokia
Class 2 4GB Sandisk (One that came with MT3G)
Class 4 8GB Kingston
I've read that the 4gb sandisk can be gold-carded, but unfortunately it hasn't worked for me. Are the instructions at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...99&postcount=1
error-proof, or does it all depend on the CID of the card?
I'm having the same problem. I've tried the 4 gig sandisk that came with my phone, two 1 gig Kingstons, and a 2 gig Kingston to no avail.
I followed the guide step by step (aside from using the SDK to obtain my CID instead of the phone - I hope that's not the cause).
I even tried using Ubuntu to copy over the image instead of using the hex editor.
Absolutely no idea how to go about this. Am I unlucky enough to have four non-working cards, or is there something here that I'm missing?
Also, thanks to the people who figured this stuff out. I've been lurking for a while on the "First Plausible Mytouch Root" thread. Sucks that my first post is a help request, but I couldn't possibly have helped you guys out as my knowledge of Android is basically zero.
