How to make a GOLDCARD


Hi everyone!

Finally,I made this guide to show you how to create Goldcard.It’s not my creation,I just collected the informations.I tried to link the original source everywhere.
All credit goes to the original authors,programmers,etc….

What is a Goldcard?
A Gold Card is a memory card that has been converted to unlock your device's CID while it is in bootloader mode.
Goldcard is limited,you can use it 2 times,after that you have to generate a new one.
Info: http://wiki.xda-developers.com/index...e=Elf_GoldCard


Why do you need it?
If you have a semi-bricked device (doesn’t boot up,but you have bootloader) and you can’t find the matching CID ROM.
Sometimes it helps when you can’t flash your device properly,it stuck in bootloader after flash or just sometimes gives error during the upgrade.It’s my experience,it worked for me many times,but no one else confirmed that.

Anything you do,you do it at your own risk,I take no responsibility for any damaged,bricked device!



What we need for Goldcard:
-micro SD card (64MB-512MB)
-card reader
-QMAT software (my example is with version 5.06 TRIAL,NOTE:Trial version works for 10 minutes only!It's enough,Goldcard generating takes seconds.You can generate Goldcard for older devices only,for newer devices you have to buy the software.See the bottom of the page.)
-a working Windows Mobile device


Format your memory card for FAT32

If you have a card reader, go to DOS and type:

format <volume> /FS:FAT32 /A:4096
where <volume> specifies the drive letter of the SD card. For example: format d: /FS:FAT32 /A:4096
  • Instead, if you have another Windows Mobile device, you can use Resco Explorer to format it to FAT32.



Run QMAT to create the Gold Card

My example is a Charmer Goldcard


Put the newly-formatted SD card in the working WM device and connect to
Activesync

Run QMAT, go to the Hardware Forensics menu, and then select "Generate HTC Goldcard"



Select your bricked device's key



Get the SD Card Serial from WINCE Device (or enter it manually if you already have the Card ID)



Save the Gold Card image to the SD Card



Unbrick your device
Go to bootloader mode on your device with inserted Gold Card.
Disable USB connections in Activesync settings menu.Connect your device to your PC.

From your PC, run the RomUpdateUtility.exe from the RUU folder containing the shipped ROM
Alternatively, you can rename the shipped ROM (NBH file) to "XXXXIMG.nbh" (where XXXX is related to the model,for example:ARTEIMG,KAISIMG,etc...)and copy to your SD card, and then reboot your device to bootloader.
It should start flashing if everything is configured properly!
If everything went fine,the only thing you have to do is:enjoy your unbricked,running device!

About QMAT:It's NOT an advertissement,I'm NOT related to that company!
If you like and need this software (to generate Goldcard to newer devices) then buy it!

It will give a name and extension for it,".bin" if I'm right.
Note:it will work with ONLY THAT SD card you made for it,because it uses the serial for encryption.

Hi,brother!

I absolutely agree with you,that's the simpliest way and as we know:simple things always work.

Registry setting

On some devices you must set the right security permissions via Registry Editor:
HKLM/Security/Policies/Policies/"00001001' set to integer 1

Use registry editor or total commander for PPC or Resco explorer.
In Total commander you can find the registry under ///Plugins in the root of PPC.

After the setting you can make Goldcard.

Question i have one dought brothers .,

Unbrick your device
Go to bootloader mode on your device with inserted Gold Card.
Disable USB connections in Activesync settings menu.Connect your device to your PC.

From your PC, run the RomUpdateUtility.exe from the RUU folder containing the shipped ROM
Alternatively, you can rename the shipped ROM (NBH file) to "XXXXIMG.nbh" (where XXXX is related to the model,for example:ARTEIMG,KAISIMG,etc...)and copy to your SD card, and then reboot your device to bootloader.
It should start flashing if everything is configured properly!
If everything went fine,the only thing you have to do is:enjoy your unbricked,running device!


i dnt't know how to do this steps .,? any one guide me detaily

hi,

If you dont have a winmo at hand but and android instread,

its possible to do a gold card also with an android phone
without qmat and without android sdk installed

for this method you

Must have

A windows pc (xp vista or 7)
htc sync installed (for drivers only)
sd card reader (optional)
a working android phone
(android sdk not required)

instructions:

download goldcard tools 0.5

here

GoldCardTools.zip - Wuala

download latest htc sync (get the latest for the android mobile model you are going to use)




here

Application - HTC Sync 3.0 for HTC Legend

after succesfull htc sync install

Format your sd card as Fat or Fat32 (Fat preferred if possible)
you can do this direcly in your phone or with a card reader
in your Pc with a format tool that allows Fat formatting as this one



here

Descargar HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool gratis

with the card formatted put it in your android phone
set it to usb debugging mode
(Menu/configuration/apps/development/usb depuration mode)
connect your android by USB to the pc AS DISK UNIT
and sync with HtcSync

when sync is done open gold card tools in Administrator mode



Click get cid button, if MMC1 does not bring the cid code try with MMC0

if successfull when cid code displayed generate gold card image
clicking at revskills link

Free HTC android goldcard generator | Phone System Analysis Software - PSAS



A GoldCard.zip image will be emailed to you within minutes.



Activate disk mode again in your phone, refresh and select the place
where the sd card is allocated, click load goldcard image and patch the MMC



Your Gold Card is ready.

Troubleshooting:


not all sd cards brands can be gold carded, try the minimun size possible
and kingston or Sand Disk brand if possible, regular old fashioned sd better
there are reports of big storage sdhc cards not valid

if you see

FAILED (remote: 42 custom id check fail)

the card is not valid or the process is not done correctly

if you see

Executing adb shell cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc0/mmc0:*/cid
Reading adb output
------------------------
* daemon not running. starting it now *
* daemon started successfully *
------------------------
Could not locate CID in output


then most likely abd cannot reach your android phone
try to sync again as disk mode but no recharging battery at same time
change fat32 to fat format

if an error comes patching the card try another one

the image is invisible as it patches sector 0 of the card, but its there

and you can continue using a gold card normally without any problem

once the gold car is correctly done you can introduce it in a bricked phone to
reflash a shipped rom or in your android to root it


Now,i need some help

im stuck with a bricked phone with and unlocked cid,
but i live in a small town so nobody around me knows what an htc is, nevertheless
what the hell is android...

so without a working phone i cannot create my own gold card

if somebody knows how to do it without phone just from a sd card reader
please let me know.

if someone know a valid link for an ELF01000 CID VODAP304 working shipped image i would aprecciate

or if someone lives in spain has a correctly done Gold card and allows me to borrow it for a while sending it to me by cheap mail so i can fix my phone,
i will ..aprecciate..i promise i will send it back.

thanks guys
