    This is the method, i'm not shure if it is working (they just developed it).
    The Ramldr itself is a great tool and works. If you make a backup, you can almost allways restore your phone to it (I did this with my V300: backup of 3AR, flash to 55R, restore to 3AR from backup). I have all the files and can send them to some one who can host'em.


    Tools:

    1. Un5x.exe – PDS converter
    2. Ramldr.exe – allows to make full backup of the phone and restore your own image
    3. Ldr_pds.bin – tool to backup PDS only

    Procedure:

    00. Make full backup with Ramldr (see below)
    01. Make PDS only backup: start Ramldr.exe and connect phone
    02. Wait till phone will enter flash mode ("connected")
    03. Click "Send ramldr" and pick Ldr_pds.bin
    04. Wait till last entry in log will be “ACK JUMP”
    05. Enter "Base addr" - 10010000
    06. Enter "Entry addr" - 10020000
    07. Click "Save mem"
    08. Wait till done, click "Restart" and close ramldr
    09. Start Un5x.exe
    10. Pick saved by Ramldr file 10010000 (don’t forget to make backup of unaltered file)
    11. Click "Convert PDS" – box at the bottom
    12. Exit Un5x
    13. Flash phone with 72R or other
    14. Repeat 1-4
    15. Click "Erase", wait till PDS is erased (last entry in log: “ACK ERASE”)
    16. Enter "Base addr" - 10010000
    17. Click "Send binary", pick file 10010000 from step 11
    18. Wait till done
    19. Click "Restart", power of the phone
    20. Should be done!



    PS: If your PDS version 4 from 55R 4ой starts from addr 10018000 (instead 10010000) you will need to patch un5x.exe with (un5x_patch.exe).




    Ramldr:

    Phone backup:
    1 – start ramldr, connect phone.
    2 – wait till in flash mode - "connected".
    3 - click send ramldr, pick file ldr.bin
    4 – wait till last entry in log is ACK JUMP
    5 – enter base addr - 10000000
    6 - enter entry адрес for triplets - 12000000
    7 - click save mem
    8 – save resulting file 10000000 (~32Mb) in secure place

    Phone restore: (can use ONLY phone’s own backup, using backup from other phone WILL KILL your phone)
    1 – see above.
    2 – see above.
    3 – see above.
    4 – see above.
    5 - click Erase, wait about 3-5 min till ACK ERASE in log, at this moment phone is erased; do not disconnect it!
    6 - enter base addr 10000000
    7 - click send binary, pick backup file.
    8 – wait till last entry in log is 11FE0000
    9 - click restart, all done.

    Exclamation Quick Question and Some Help if Possible

    Ok.... Got a big problem. I accidently flashed my v400 to a v3 flash. And Of course you know that you cant flash down. Will the method above work for that? Only one thing is that I have no way of backing up the phone prior to that. If i have the phone flashed to v3 it will not start except in flash mode. But if i backflash to 58R it atleast lights the keypad and screen for a second! Can someone please help? I have another phone (my trusty v300) but i would like to fix this one. Thanx. One further question: Has anyone been able to get skins support on a v300? I would like to somehow get skins! Thanx in advance! Also if the above method will work can you email me the files please? [email protected]

    However, some folks claim that they had success, some not.......

    If you have working phone, make a backup, so you can go back.

    It worked for my brothers v300. I was finaly able to replace his 58R with 72R.

    I used 1001000 address but with un5x_patch.exe. the un5x.exe just erased the content of 1001000 so i think it is not good for use because i didn't wanted to flash the PSD area with the empty file. Even if it sounds logical to erase PDS so i so that the phone can accept new flash i stil think it will fry your phone. But that's just my oppinion.

    Here is one more link:
    http://motofan.ru/board/index.php?ac...e=post&id=7891

    It is a PDS converter tool that should work more sable than the un5x.

    It will create seem files from backup and convert them in PDS.bin......



    P.S.: 1. All credits go to users of motofan.ru
    2. I did not test any of the methods above (exept bakup/restore with ramldr), so do it on your own risk.

    One more thing. Since ramldr can make full phone backup in binary file, it is possible now to create phone flash file from backup of any working phone. Somewere in the forums I had seen a piece of soft, that allows you to assemble bin to shx.

    Can someone tel me what is the correct address of the PDS area in v525? Few of my friend tried this method (with was succesful on my v300) on there v525 and ended up with dead phones. So my guess is the address of the PDS is different on v525. Please help my friends if you know.

    This method may not work with with some phones. First of all, the ramldr is designed for original triplets phones (not the ramldr.exe but the ldr.bin). second, did you tried the last prog that I posted (new PDS converter). After all, if your friends did made the backup files they allways can ressurect their phones with 5x firmware.....

    Yes they have made backup PDS files using address 1001000 but as i see it that address is not corect therefore there PDS backups ar not infact PDS backup but some random code files. one user did managed to fix his phone when restoring his backup "PSD" and flashing with 55R. Others have just tried flashing with 55R without restoring "PDS"
