@stepw there is now method to install a rom without SDDL (by shorting 1 and 3 pin hidden under plastic sticker in SIM card slot) is there any progres with decoding tsw or enc roms ? or does TG01 accept bin or any other known format ?
Well, now that this method became public, SDDL+ is obsolete. I encourage anyone willing to flash TG01 ROMs to use pin shorting to enter SD download mode. You need to rename your .tsw to .enc manually to circumvent operator/country check.
Unlike SDDL+ that doesn't allow flashing .bin files, you can actually flash them when entering SD download mode by shorting pins. Wrong .bin file can brick your unit beyond repair, to the point where pin shorting won't work anymore, so be careful!
The format of .bin files is fairly straightforward, but there are no tools to parse it yet, so custom ROM building is not possible. Decoding .tsw files is not an issue, as they are encrypted with DES ECB cypher. If you know the key, you can decrypt them easily.
