cheers iliko! I had seen the original thread at xda but your hex editor pics were very helpful
I am in Oz, and like a few others - have a malaysian tattoo/click.
I got it to work with the same image but perhaps had a slightly easier time! I am sharing here in case others may find it helpful:
*ADB = WTF? if this is what you are wondering, then you are not alone. It refers to 'android development bridge' that allows your android device to connect to to pc via usb without being in sync or disc drive mode.
What you need to get into ADB.
*The android SDK
*android usb drivers
*ADB mode enabled in your phone and teh variable set up in pc system settings>>>read HOW TO ADB for DUMMIES from xda
>>I found the android usb drivers were already on my system. I have a feeling that the HTC sync app I have installed may have done that... if you have the ADB mode/drivers going properly it will look like this in your device manager:
You of course need to have a nice clean/formatted msd card in the phone to get the CID off it using the command line code iliko outlines above. For those curious, I used a a 2GB sandisk micro sdhc card. The original FAT32 formatting and later hex editing was done in windows.
*You dont need to do all that QMAT stuff anymore! Once youve popped in that adb code and got the CID number >> it looks like this
*red bits block out personal info and my first attempt which didnt work due to a typo
You'll need to write this number down - or better yet type it into a text/wordpad file so you can easily copy and paste it.
Then go to Sooa-'s Goldcard Hex Reversal Page
and copy and paste the number in and press 'submit' >>youre reversed number will be generated and you will see a hyperlink to QMATS page where you can generate the gold card code.
Here you will input your email and your reversed number and the prized goldcard.img you are after will be sent to the email you have nominated.
The email seemed to have been sent pretty much instantly.
Then hop over and download the goldcard.img from your email account and follow iliko's instructions for the hex editor stuff. Its pretty easy. You are basically replacing the lines of the goldcard.img into to sd cards existing lines. I had my sd card plugged into my pc via a reader for this bit - as you need to be able to identify 'removable disk' in hex editor as per the instructions. Whether you could have kept the m-sd in the phone and gone over to 'disc drive' mode is something I didnt try.
Once youve authored the edited hex onto the card, IT IS NOW A GOLDCARD!
Now. to get that update.... I fussed about with all that clicimg/diag business and had no luck.
*As mentioned I have HTC sync installed. I plugged that in and went into 'htc sync' mode on the phone (ie, not disc drive mode).
From here I just ran the RUU Click HTC WWE 1.67.405.6 WWE release signed NoDriver.exe
from the desktop and it rebooted and updated in a civilised manner. No button holds, it just did it business. I then took the goldcard out and replaced my original SD with all my music etc.
Upon rebooting it was great to be asked for UK english and finally see the market there. Even better - it actually worked !! \o/ Gmail, youtube etc all good too.
I hope that was helpful to someone!! It will at least keep us going until 2.01 comes out (see here
for more info on that)
