INTRODUCTION

As the Revskills site has been taken down (aparently for good) and thanks to Gene Poole (for provinding the .exe file that does all the magic), I have wrote a simple script that creates the goldcard.img file.

INSTRUCTIONS

As usual, you need:
  1. Drivers installed in the PC.
  2. adb, fastboot, and such commands running in the PC (if you don't have then download this folder (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/30674730/adb.rar) and extract its contents in the golcard tool folder)
  3. Follow on screen instructions.

Make sure that you check on what MMC is your sdcard ID located. So far, Desire HD/Inspire 4G is on MMC2 but do not have information on other devices.

If you follow the instructions after running the tools, the goldcard.img file will be created in the tools folder. Then, patch the sdcard using the Simple Goldcard Tool included in the tools folder.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

Many thanks to Gene Poole from creating the .exe file that creates the img file.

Question
Thx for your work, but it doesnt seem to work. After creating the image the tool says "It doesnt seem to be a valid Goldcardimage:

Get CID works, but the used and reversed CID seems to be another.

Furthermore I dont understand, how the GC.cmd can create a Goldcardimage without knowing the correct CID. It dont asks for that!?

The script finds the cid in the code. Of course it depends on the phone you have. The DHD or Inspire 4g have cid located in mmc2. If you choose the wrong mmc July get the wrong cid number.

Thanks but no thanks. I just bricked my Wildfire S by attempting to create a gold card using your tools.



Edit: I got it working! And successfully created a gold card! My issue was that ADB was not recognizing my device. My solution was to flash an old nandroid that had presumably had USB Debugging Enabled. I then proceeded to run the cmd file but without any luck, I was unable to properly get a gold image.

My check to see if ADB was talking to my device was:

Code:
adb devices
Once I confirmed that my device was being read on my PC, I ran SimpleGoldCard.exe and successfully got the CID for the SD Card. I then manually ran gcard.exe in terminal, and used the command:

Code:
gcard -c *CID* -r -o "C:/Gold Card/gold.img"
Success! I pulled out the SD card from the device, attached it to my computer via a card reader, and then ran SimpleGoldCard.exe again, completing the process.

I required the Gold Card due to calibration to attach an aftermarket digitizer to an HTC Wildfire S. I was unable to get past #7: https://sites.google.com/site/repair...-s-calibration without a gold card.

Thanks for sharing this, it worked for me, and I got the digitizer fully calibrated on my Wildfire S!

There's no way to brick a device getting the cid of the sdcard. This tool does not flash anything at all. So, unless you have proof what you are saying makes no sense

Yes my mistake! I figured something went wrong, as the device was not responding after running the script. I was getting a flashing red notification light, and I wasn't able to load the bootloader. I found out it was due to a low battery. :P I suppose the battery does not charge while in the bootloader or fastboot menu? I almost tossed the phone in the garbage, but I still had hope!
