Is your device set as charge only when connected VIA USB or have you run Sync on the device?

It should be charge only.

I'll get a new version uploaded soon, that will show logging, help to get round these problems.

I've only been able to test this on my Hero so far.

[edit]

First post updated, lets see if we can fix this.

It worked out fine until the last step. Then I recieved the following error message:

************** JIT Debugging **************

To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

application or computer (machine.config) must have the

jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.

The application must also be compiled with debugging

enabled.

For example:

<configuration>

<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer

rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Maybe you can help out what went wrong...

Thx

I can :)

Seems I used a property that requires .NET 3, oops, sorry.

I don't know why it allowed it to compile and run on my system, I should have seen that error too.

Uploading v0.0.4 now, with the property removed.

[edit]

Uploaded v0.0.4

Thanks for your effort but I still can't get it to work.

I formatted my sd card (the one that came with my legend), inserted it in the phone and restarted my phone (or did i needed to fastboot it?). Hooked up the usb cable, selected charging only and tried the CID. This was the message i got in the debugging log:

"Executing adb shell cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:*/cid

Reading adb output

------------------------

adb server is out of date. killing...

* daemon started successfully *

/sys/class/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:*/cid: No such file or directory

------------------------

Could not locate CID in output"

Am I doing something wrong?

No your not, I've seen this error doing it by hand too, I'll add another search line to the adb command,

Your device is probably

/sys/class/mmc_host/mmc0/mmc0:*/cid

Hi, I have followed the instructions in post 1.

Connection type is charge only.

USB debugging is on.

In the Goldcard tool I get "Could not locate CID in output", both in MMC1 & MMC0.

Any help greatly appreciated, by the way i'm using XP.

Hi all.

Does anyone know how small and SD card can I use to create a goldcard. I have a spare 256MB card from my wife's phone lying around so I thought about using that, if possible. Any help appreciated. :rolleyes:

Thanks.

Any should work.

Your only patching Sector 0 of the microSD, no actual files go on the card.

I extracted this and here is 0.0.5 in .exe format. http://www.filefactory.com/file/b1d16ag/n/GoldCardTool_exe

I've just downloaded your tool and htc sync ready for my orange branded desire when it arrives tomorrow. I have a couple of questions.

1. The phone will be locked to orange. Will i need to unlock the phone to create a gold card?

2. Provided it all goes well i'll have an unbranded phone. I presume when i restart after unbranding i'll have to setup the network settings manually or will the phone pick them up from the sim?

You don't need to unlock the phone.

I'm not 100% on the APN setting's being lost, They should still work.
