    Things you will need and to do

    -A memory card (preferable a spare one), and also preferable smaller that 2GB
    -A Phone
    -Backup all the info on the memory card, we will be formatting it!

    Section 1 - Creating a Goldcard on a working phone

    Step 1) Get memory card CID and goldcard image

    -Insert the memory card you wish to make into a goldcard into the phone.
    -Go to Settings/SD and Phone storage on the phone and select 'unmount SD card'. Once the card is unmounted select 'Erase SD card'.
    -Download and install 'Goldcard Helper' from the market.
    -The app will run and give two CID's which are all ready reversed, write down the mmc2 number.
    -Go to psas.revskills.de website here and enter your mmc2 CID and download the goldcard image (goldcard.img).

    Step 2) Create the Goldcard

    -Download 'HxD-Hex-Editor' from here and install it on your PC.
    -Connect the phone to the PC in 'disk mode' i.e. view your SD card on the PC (Removable Disk).
    -Open the Hex Editor (Run as Administrator if Vista/Windows 7)
    -Select the 'Extra' tab and then 'Open Disk'. Under Physical Disk select your Removable Disk (your SD cad) and ensure 'Open as Read Only' is not selected and then select OK.
    -Now goto the 'Extra' tab again and select 'Open Disk Image' and select the 'goldcard.img' file you downloaded early (Step 1). Press OK when prompted for Sector Size 512.

    -You will now have two tabs open, one the SD card and the other the goldcard image, now to merge the two

    -Go to the the goldcard.img tab and select 'Edit' then 'Select All' then 'Edit' and 'Copy'.
    -Now go the you SD card tab and highlight offset 00000000 to 000000170 , and then 'Edit' and 'Paste'
    -Lastly goto 'File' and select 'Save'

    Allll Done......

    You can also have a look here for a more modern/complex method
    Or here (has a video).

    Section 2 - Creating a Goldcard on the PC

    Will add when I have time, in the mean time you can check here, kashoulis post 11 and you can also check here

    I guess a year and a half would never be enough time.

    Am i doing something wrong?
    1) The PSAS website doesn't register and
    2) The programme doesn't generate a mmc2 number, just a mmc1
