Hi everyone!

When i first made a partition layout (this one), it came to be a little difficult (i have almost no experience in hex editing),so i decided to make a windows program so anyone could make their one partition layout.

Screenshots: Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

This program creates the "partition_zte.mbn" and "appsboot.mbn".

GEN1
Follow the guide here and use the files you created.
Warning: I don't have a gen1 blade, so I couldn't test this, but it should work.

GEN2
Put the files you created in "files" folder in this zip and follow the guide here

Looks good. When you press Create Files, what files does it create? A TPT?

Just a suggestion, make it general!
So, read (and modify) files from a subfolder, that will make it easier to use (for Gen1 users too).

I will not convert my phone to Gen2 until it is official in Hungary. Why? Because then I lose warranty IRREVERSIBLE.

Just wondering... when you load the app initially, the default memory layout adds up to 440mb with 0mb of unallocated space. However, if you adjust the Cache slider up by 1mb and then back down by 1mb again it then says there is 1mb of unallocated space available. this would mean that there is actually a total of 441mb available. So does this mean that in any further adjustments, the user should leave 1mb of space unallocated? Or is something reporting wrong? Obviously, if there is not enough space to contain the layout, the update could potentially fail so I just wanted to be clear.

Thank you in advance for your advice Ricardo

Thanks for your finding, it is a bug in the program, that happens with any slider.
Fixed now.

Hi ricardopvz,

Neat little App, not personally tried this myself yet as I am still on Gen1... and I have two family members who are also on Gen1. We dont believe in migrating yet to Gen2 until it becomes more mainstream and that support for Gen1 completely drys up... at the moment, there appears to be more happening for Gen1 devices.

Therefor, as someone else also suggested, whats the chances in making this work for both Gen1 and Gen2 users...??

Many thanks, great tool... :)
