Hello community,

I would like to thank cedesmith, thats provided me very useful information about the next steps that are needed to get WM6.5.3 on the TG01.

Ok here is the actual development status:

Progress of the Project WM6.5.3:

- With SDDL+ made by stepw we can flash any Rom on the TG01

- With cedesmith's tool TGTool v.1.2.14 we can decrypt the .tsw file that Toshiba provides us, we than get an unencrypted .bin file out of the .tsw file

- We also can dump this .bin file by also using cedesmith's TGTool v.1.2.14

TGTool.exe extracts out of the .bin the following parts:

-TG01.WMB1.nbin -> is boot+xip partition (information by cedesmith)
-TG01.WMB2.nbin -> is imgfs (information by cedesmith)
-TG01.WMB3.nbin -> is dos partition (information by cedesmith)

- With viewimgfs.exe it's possible to dump the imgfs partition (TG01.WMB2.nbin)

- With bepe's package Tool it's possible to analyze the Rom. Through this you get a OEM and a SYS folder, that contains some important files

- With TGTool v1.2.14 it's also possible to dump the OS that's included in the decrypted .bin file (you get a file called TG01.OS.nb)

- With TGTool v1.2.14 it's also possible to dump the payload that's included in the decrypted .bin file (you get a file called TG01WP.OS.payload)

- After Rom is cooked, it's possible to check the Rom with cedesmith's TGTool v1.2.14

Next steps of the development (To-Do-List):

- Rom needs to be cooked

- Tool needs to be made that rebuilds a .bin or .tsw file out of the modified files

We should already thank hdubli that is currently working on a Rom.

And we should thank cedesmith. Without him there would be no development for the TG01. There would be nothing...So big thanks to cedesmith who made this project possible.

Will update this post as soon as we got more information!

Best regards,

So I think this must be the first step in the development.

One question remains. If the phone got the Hard-SPL, what is needed to get a working WM6.5.3 Rom onto the phone?

And what is needed to cook this Rom?

For example, if we get a Hard-SPL for the Toshiba TG01, will the people of WMPoweruser be able to cook a Wm6.5.3 Rom for the phone or do they need some files out of the TG01 that they can't get at the moment?

People, you need to realize that more informations are needed!

Nobody will help us, if we don't know what is needed to be done!

Does nobody know the exact Rom Development Process for Windows Mobile phones here?

I count on you guys! It's our only chance to get a working WM6.5.3 for our phone.

So please answer me! I can than provide the Cracker all the information.

Best regards,


Hard spl how I say we dont need. May be I am not sure. I have a simple kitchen for other Toshiba 900 but I think is working for TG01. What we need all files from TG01 dll , cab etc....
That is from one beginner if I can help with something more tell me.

about the need
I am so glad to see that someone finally care the TG01 progress.

I come to the forum from the time TG01 to be opened,waiting the cooked rom for a long time, many IDs come and many IDs go, at last the news about TG01 become few more and more, the people that use TG01 become lack more and more,many thread not to be updated for a long time.

OK, then I talk about the need that I most wanted:

I have a japanese version TG01, it only can flash the japanese rom, and can not flash the ENGLISH or ITALY rom, and as I know ,many people like me have the same question.

Hope DunkDream can help to solve this question.

Well for me it seems that nobody in this Forum knows 100% sure what is needed to be done, to get a cooked Rom for the TG01.

If we don't have more information about the TG01, nobody will help us.

Or what should I tell the person I talked to, now?

Should I tell, that we want a hard-spl but are not sure if it's needed?

I guess, this development is not very easy.

I'll try to get more information about the TG01 and want to find a person thats knows the Rom Development process for WM-Phones very good.

We need a real expert in Rom Development.

Maybe Wen knows one, I could talk to.
I'll ask him.

Before we don't have all information, we won't get a new Rom for our phone.

Sorry bojan, but we need to be 100% sure Otherwise we may cause some people work that is at the end worthless.

Best regards,

I started a new thread in the General Hacking and Development section of xda-developers.

Maybe I can gain some informations there.

Can somebody explain me what we exactly can do with the tool that cotulla made and with the sddl+?

Thanks in advance!

Here is the thread I started:

Hope that sums everything in a good way up.

You are welcome to post in that thread, if you gain new information!

So you want a know the truth?We need hard spl if we want a full ROM who work in all TG01.
And other think we need is a decompress the bin file. Cotula program is just decrypt the tsw file now is unpack this file and you can cook.
What info do you need more? We have kitchen we have files decrypted and we need just unpacker and hard spl.

Couldn't you just wait for the TG02 to come out and then flash that rom on?

All the TG01 2 is different chassis and a different screen.
