Thanks for the guide to dump... manage to dump the spanish HTC WM6 ROM, and now i have two questions...

First is easy (i think), what is every partition of the dump? i suppose part03 is the imgfs, but can you give us more information about this?

Second one is do you think can be interesting uploading the dumped ROMs to the wiki (like in the hermes wiki)? If "yes" i can upload the spanish one.

Thanks again for your efforts.

Thanks a lot!!!


But when i run pdocread.exe an error mag:

"Could not update itsutils.dll to the current version, maybe it is inuse?
try restarting your device, or restart activesync
or maybe your device is application-locked."

I restarted my Kaiser, still the same error...

Anyone could help?

Is it possible to use pdocwrite to write back the raw files to your own device?

Strange. On my T-Mob UK...
210.00M (0xd200000) FLASHDR
| 3.12M (0x31f000) Part00
| 3.50M (0x380000) Part01
| 68.00M (0x4400000) Part02
| 135.38M (0x8760000) Part03

Notice the slightly smaller Part03.
Same ROM, same dates. Wierd!

ROM: 1.56.110.4
Date: 01/09/07
Radio: 1.27.12.11
Protocol: 22.45.88.07H

On my UK T-Mobile Vario III:

210.25M (0xd240000) FLASHDR
| 3.12M (0x31f000) Part00
| 3.50M (0x380000) Part01
| 68.00M (0x4400000) Part02
| 135.63M (0x87a0000) Part03

Which is really odd...

I'd quite like to know this as well - I'm assuming one of the sections is the SPL. It'd be nice to know which, so I can revert back to the factory SPL if needs be.
