It worked great for me! Thanks!

Went from about 6-7 average before to about 17MB now!

Fyi as in a previous post, the new wings are preset a@ 8 instead of the former 12.

As long as you have a clue about the way your phone and computer works there shouldnt be any problem!

Thanks again!

17MB free

Hey Paul!

Thanks so much for this procedure!! I am at best a novice at programming type stuff, but I followed your instructions to a 'T' and it worked great!! I have almost 20 megs now on my Wing and that's awesome!! I set the pagepool size on mine to 4mb, because when I checked the default size after downloading the dump files, it was already set to 8mb. However, I just recently flashed the ROM with an updae from T-mobile, which helped with some of the quirks that I have encountered with this confounded thing and maybe that update reset the pagepool size to 8 mb. And of course the memory naturally has always dogged this thing... Anways, so far, it has run just fine with a pagepool of only 4mb. Naturally, if I run into any problems, I will post an update... I look forward to finding more of your helpful tips on improving the performance on the Wing.... Thanks again!

Manfred

BTW- if i should end up having issues, as long as my wing reboots, I should be able to just edit the dump file to 6 mb and rewrite it to my wing, correct?

Hi guys,
I still have problems on my s730.
When I perform the rom-read, the standard command doesn't work. Looking on web I added some parameters like -b -h FLASHDR etc ...
and I was able to create my part02.dump file.
I changed it using the exe file for 6 Mb patch.
Now I cannot write the dumped file into my s730 since I'm having an error like: the device is not functioning.
This is the same error I had in reading rom, but I solved adding more parameters.
Now I'm not able to write files ....
Are there special features for S730??

Hello Paul, thanks for the work sofar. I am having some issues with getting the dump file.

Sofar I have ran the ROM unlocker and downloaded the pdocread file. When I run "pdocread -l" I get the following for my part 2
"50.63M <0x32a0000> Part02"

When I type "pdocread 0 0x32a0000 part02.dump" I get this response

copy TFFSToFile(0x0, 0x32a0000, part02.dump)
ERROR: ITReadDisk : Read 00000000 bytes - A device attached to the system is not functioning

And I don't get a part02.dump file. Any ideas? thanks!

Hi Paul,

I want to extract a specific program from a ROM and pack it into a cab file so that I can install this program into another device. So far I have managed to dump the ROM into a dump folder but don't know how to proceed further. Your expertise is of great help!

I get the same exact result when I execute 'pdocread -l' in my pagepool folder. I don't know which hex value to use. I have a Wing with WM6 Pro. Thanks.


NM, the location for the Wing w/ WM6 is 0x37B55A.

I have the same problem with my S730.


I could download page02 with following command:

   pdocread -w -d FLASHDR -b 0x800 -p Part02 0 0x4180000 Part02.raw

but can't find in downloaded file necessary string: no 'NKKD8', no 'FF FF FF FF FF FF FF FF 9B 4F FF FF 64 B0 00 00'.

The file patch T_MobileWingPagePool6MB also says:

   The file you selected to patch is not the samefile intended to patch...

but still working and make something with this downloaded Part02.raw (see attached file).

And of course I have no idea how to upload this file to phone, even when I make it right.

I hate to revive an old thread, but will flashing a new ROM remove the applications installed?

Hi Paul,

Firstly, thank you for your guiding to change the pagepool.

When i have it try in my device (HTC S1+), the performance is not obvious. So i'm curious of your device type of HTC-Touch? Are you use HTC S1?

Besides, when starting the command“pdocread -l”.Information are shown as the attachment. There is no “Part02” area like at your process. Should i do the following with “Part01” seen in the picture of the attachment.

Thanks!Waiting for your reply.
