*Sigh*.

FAILED (remote: 42 custom id check fail)

HTC Legend (non-branded, German); I tried every variation of building a valid GoldCard I could find. No luck.

Now what? I want to CyanogenMod the damn thing!

Hi Guys,

I am badly stuck. I have rooted my HTC Wildfire out of curiosity using unrevoced. Now after the official release froyo I tried to update my phone which is now giving me this error

getprop("ro.cid")="99999999" || getprop("ro.cid")="HTC_038" E:ERROR in /sdcard/download/OTA_Buzz_Froyo_hTC_Asia_India_2.25.720.1-1.25.720.1_reslease_161546bwou4mclajggz2mu-1.zip (Status 7)

And when I try to flash the phone with RUU its gives me an error "error 131 customer id error" . I believe both the message are same.

I have followed the steps to create the Goldcard. Now I dont know what I should do with the goldcard to update my phone with the official froyo release. I dont mind loosing the root access . please advice.

Thanks you,

Shankar

Why doesn't the Goldcard work for me? It still says wrong CID, whether I use RUU, or PD98IMG.zip method. I even got a different image sent just in case, but nothing is working. I even used the goldcard maker. Nothing. Do goldcards no longer work? I don't understand. Someone help please.

Looking for some help with the Hex editor section of making the goldcard.

When i'm trying to open my sd card, it shows under logical disks but not physical disks.

Anyone know why this might be happening?

Thanks in advance.

I've approved active assorted RUU's with no luck, the abutting I accept appear with annihilation is active an UPDATE file, which endless but if the buzz reboots afterwards accession it goes to a 1-100% adverse thingy, which comes up with delay or force abutting afterwards 10-15% and alone gets to about 90% afresh reboots and tries afresh and again, so its ashore in a rebooting loop.

Hi,

i'v got a problem getting the number from the command

cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:*/cid

then i have an error: file not found

In some guides i found to use another number in the path as

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

cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc2/mmc2:*/cid

This 2 commands give me 2 different number, can i use them to generate the gold card?

What does it mean mmc1 / mmc0 or mmc2 ?

tnx

Just a useful website for getting your reversed number:

http://www.string-functions.com/reverse.aspx

I was wondering why my goldcard didn't work... then downloaded an app for Android, compared with the code I got on console and noticed this: that reverse don't work for this case

Found out now. It needs to reverse the hex codes. So the reversing needs to be in pairs.

And the first 2 numbers turn to 00.

Enter 'adb shell cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:*/cid' and press enter. You should get a very long number which looks like this: 532600bd227d9c0347329407514d5402.

Visit this page, paste in your number and reverse it. In our example the result would be 00544d5107943247039c7d22bd002653.

Check it out:

53 26 00 bd 22 7d 9c 03 47 32 94 07 51 4d 54 02

00 54 4d 51 07 94 32 47 03 9c 7d 22 bd 00 26 53

Sorry that I'm new using command prompt. After i have navigated to the tools directory, I tried typing "adb shell" enter i didn't work and I tried typing the whole thing "adb shell cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:*/cid" it didn't work as well. It's stated there 'adb' is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. May I know how I can do it exactly? The line in my command prompt is:

c:\Program Files\android-sdk-windows\tools>adb shell cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc1/mmc1:*/cid

What have I done wrongly?

Hi

I am now installing SDK and it's super slow, is it normal ? (downloading a lot).

After having made a Goldcard, do you know which ROM i could install on HTC WILDFIRE S (Marvel phone, NOT Buzz which is wildfire WITHOUT S).

Thank you for your help.

Hello.

I don't understand  the whole gold card thing. You said "if you own a T-Mobile branded device, this will allow you to flash a generic ROM."

Is it not possible just simply write the system.bin to system partition with "fastboot flash"?

What was this gold card exactly? And what is the origin? Is it something for the providers from HTC?

 

Thank you.
