There is 2 methods to flash a TG01. In any case, you will need to Fully Charge Your Battery. The 2 methods are, the so called "pin method" and "sddl+ method". The PIN method may be performed also with a half-bricked TG01. The PIN method CAN'T RECOVER a full-bricked TG01 (no ROM at all, or a full corrupted one).

This tutorial is based on this post:

SDDL+ Method
  • Unrar SDDL.rar, place the files into your SD Card.
  • Create a folder called PRG on your SD Card.
  • Place your ROM (.tsw) on the PRG folder.**
  • Execute the SDDL+ at your SD Card to initialize the flashing.

**Note: Sometimes the SDDL+ Reports file not found, in this case, you may need to rename the rom to "TG01WP_00.tsw". After this, the ROM should flash properly.

Link SDDL:

PIN Recovery Method
  • Create a folder called PRG on your SD Card.
  • Place your ROM (.tsw) on the PRG folder.
  • Rename your ROM extension from (.tsw) to (.enc) at the PRG folder.
  • Remove the SIM Card
  • Remove the black plastic tab under where the SIM lies
  • Replace the battery
  • Secure the battery - use Velcro cable tie, rubber band or sticky tape (vital it does not fall out while Flashing!)
  • Short (connect together) Pin 1 and Pin 3; then press the Reset Button
  • Hold for 10 seconds or so; then release
  • Turn phone over and should show white Flash screen in progress until completed and says Successful - Rebooting

a small note..

i successfully bricked my phone today :P and was trying this method for the first time and it didnot give me the white screen so i switched on the phone and while it is at "toshiba" screen, i performed the short/reset procedure and now its loading. hope this helps for ppl who cant get this to work.

also for shorting the 1 and 3 pin, use a stapler pin.. its short in lenght so not much resistance

Shorting Pins Jumper
I would strongly recommend NOT using any form of steel wire or implement to short Pins 1 and 3 when reflashing....

The contacts are only thin plated copper pads on the main circuit board and are not intended for repeated prodding with a hard implement.

Instead, I recommend:
- Get a short length of stiff copper wire (eg. out of a piece of mains cable)
- Cut to a suitable length so you can hold comfortably
- Bend back each leg on itself so that you have a nice rounded end to press onto each pad - think of the end of your stylus compared to a pencil.

That should allow repeated use without causing damage to the PCB tracks

Short Pins Illustration
Sorry, I don't have enough hands to do a video of the procedure; however hopefully this picture will help....

The jumper 'tool' is not essential, but I have found really helpful when repeatedly recovering a half-bricked device. The stiff copper wire can be bent to exactly the right angle to make comfortable to hold just in the right place and set to the correct gap to match the contacts on the PCB. The folded ends ensure that there is a nice smooth surface touching the contacts and minimal risk of damaging them.

Hold the wire loop firmly in one hand, press onto the contacts; then press the Reset button with the stylus using the other.

The Velcro cable wrap or a rubber band or sticky tape is vital to ensure the battery doesn't fall out when you turn the device over !

As for methods.

1. SDDL much better. You cna change firmware version but cant use if device not starting
2. PIN you have to know which ROM version you can use - cant change variant.

Making back-up
Hi! I don't want to make another topic so i'll ask it here.
I can't find how to make backup of ROM. I don't want to lose my warranty so it would be best to make it.
I know how to make backup for HTC but im not sure what to do with TG01.
Could someone give me solution?

If there is topic i had not noticed then sry about it
