I have the same problem
I have the same problem
You can describe in more detail? What did you do before you run into this problem?
Sony SL10=>HP 1930=>1940=>Toshiba e755=>Loox N520=>Acer n311+Huawei ETS688=> Fujitsu-Siemens Loox N560 WM6=>Dell Axim x51v=> Huawei s7 s-105 (FW 2.2.2 Sweden) + Nokia N78. Garmin Forerunner 405. I love flash Garmin devices.
Same problem here, constant reboot:
power on -> garmin screen (splash logo)-> power off ... and so on non stop. tried soft reset( holding power button for 20 sec) does not work, hard reset does not work also, putting finger in lower right corner of touch screen does not do anything. It started doing it after i have started the car, garmin started to initialise itself and then i had to shut car off, after that this problem appeared. So my guess it was not completely initialised and therefore firmware(sys files) got corrupted.
the megaupload link does not work no more...FBI shut it down.
what can be done to revive my unit?
Use garmim cure tool or convert GCD to rgn and try reflash in pre boot.
i went through process and got nowhere here is what i did:
1. got cure tool from here [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
2. got GCD file and GCD-MTK file from here [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
3. started cure , picked newly downloaded files, marked option "CURE" it successfully processed file
4. ran UPDATER, picked USB support, on this step i got GARMIN turned on with left top screen corner pressed, while pressed, GARMIN appeared in UPDATER USB connection tab, once i saw that i pressed OK, UPDATER went through writing (GARMIN showed loading loader) once loaded it gave me an error - see screen shots attached. (GARMIN it self says "SOFTWARE MISSING")
Did i miss something?
Also, Device ID starts with 375... does that make any sense at all? again, see pics attached.
P.S. i have also tried ORIGINAL (i suppose when chosen it just flashes original without modifications)

P.P.S. PREBOOT: i cant get any response from GARMIN unit when trying to get to ST0RAGE mode, also am i right, that i actually need that so PC would see my GARMIN unit?
Thanks folks for helping me out, i sincerely appreciate it, still hoping to get it to work.
added: found this and readint it now: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
ADDED LATER: some people may wonder about guts and PDF/DATASHEETs so i have found datasheets for bot of my ROM and RAM chips
ARM GARMIN ST
Allright, i now have finished reading sticky about SOFTWARE MISSING - do you folks use regular terminal or special one, perhaps custom?
another question - it appears to me that this unit can be flashed with having certain file(s) on SD card - am i right? thanks
