    The problem with deviating from the 'conventional' naming of the rgn file of yyyy01000xxx.rgn [where yyyy is the unit's native HWID and xxx is the fw version] is that any other naming will force the flash. The conventional naming prevents flashing an incorrect fw boot.bin. There are times when we want to force the flash such as when doing a full conversion of totally compatible hardware when the PCB P/Ns match.

    Unfortunately, US/EU 24x5 and ID 2465 are not the same hardware in the sense that you can simply cross-flash as you've found out. Such cross-flashing might be possible with some serious manipulation of the US fw beforehand, but it's certainly not successful unmodified.

    Maybe our resident navigation software experts can suggest some other CPR for your now comatose unit. There is nothing further i can suggest. Without flashing in preboot or from the card, i'm all out.

    I can only suggest trying harder to enter the pre-boot mode.
    Loading ldr.bin would help only if the fw_all.bin boots far enough to load it. But it seems that the device crashes while running the bootloader (which provides the pre-boot mode).
    If running ldr.bin or entering the pre-boot mode is impossible then I don't know how to cure the unit using purely software methods.
    Then in most probably can be cured by unsoldering the flash chip and flashing it with a healthy dump.

    Another thought, did you remember to try again with SD renaming the folder from 1327 to 1371 and replacing the ID ldr.bin with the US? I've remade the 'backup region 41 kit' for you to try in case you've overlooked doing that: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    HI All,

    I registered today to search the forum and potentially to post my issue that I have been having with my BMW Navigator IV (Zumo 660) since yesterday afternoon, when in a moment of sheer stupidity I thought it would be a good idea to format the device memory to start with a clean slate. I'd backed up all of the memory to my local Mac, so I thought I'd be safe, how wrong I was.

    Anyway, to cut a very long story very short, I carefully read through this post and followed precisely the steps laid out in this post.

    I had to use QuickCure3-with-flasher.rar functionality as the normal updater.exe started but then failed. Once the device was recognised I successfully managed to format under windows 8 (via VMWare) using the RMPRepUSB settings specified. Then I was able to reflash the latest firmware using Garmin WebUpdater and eventually reinstall my maps via Garmin Express.

    All that I have remaining is a small issue of trying to salvage my NuMaps Lifetime Europe maps from my backup, but this is a minor issue as I finally have a functioning device.

    I cannot thank all of you that helped with this, especially kunix enough for your fantastic posts and continued support - if only Garmin would offer such a service!

    Hard lesson. Moral: Never format any flash drive to FAT16/32 using a Mac directly. Never even format a Garmin internal drive using Windows built-in tool for that matter, use PMPrepUSB only. I don't even like using the Windows tool for general media card formatting.

    Thanks for your feedback on your experience peelos. It may save some other innocent mac-using soul some torture.

    Just used it to solve some issues with my Montana 650 stuck in Garmin logo screen after an unsuccessful patched firmware upload.
    Great work!
    Thanks,

    I have the nuvi 265W yesterday I accidentally deleted partition and formatted the unit fat32, now when I turn the unit on it shows the garmin boot screen then goes into a reboot loop, if I put a sd card in the slot it will boot into the unit and I can get to the menus. When I plug the unit into the pc the unit beeps like it charging but the pc does not see the unit, if I hold my finger in the top left when powering on and plug it in when I see garmin on the screen windows will do the ding dong sound like it found the unit but if I leave my finger on the screen to long the pc will ding dong again like the unit disconnects from the pcand the calibration screen will come on. I cant get to preboot at all. PLEASE HELP....

    The unit waits in pre-boot mode for ~30 seconds. If nothing is flashed to it in that time it will go the the calibration screen and then boot [if it's able].

    Read carefully post #1. Make the cure firmware and load it to updater.exe and have that visible on your desktop with the radio button beside 'USB Device' selected. Hold the top LH corner of the screen while plugging the USB lead into the nuvi [have the lead ready, plugged into a rear port of your PC]. As soon as you see the nuvi's details appear in the window to the right of 'USB Device', press OK on updater.exe and keep holding the screen at least until you see 'Loader' appear on the screen.

    It will go to the Logo again on boot and stay there, but you should then be able to access Mass Storage Mode. Reformat using RMPrepUSB only [see link, post #1]. Create a root folder named Garmin on the unit. Finally load the original firmware, then connect to WebUpdater to replace voice files etc and MapUpdater to replace your purchased maps, or if you have a backup restore from there.

    I got garmincure3 to run and put on cure, was seen as removable drive I put on original now after reboot it just sits at white screen... even if I turn it off, it goes back to white screen, it does the ding sound connecting to pc but in explorer it's not listed, in device manager it shows garmin under drives.... Edit....... I have rerun the garmincure3 with cure The pc now sees the unit as a removable drive, not sure what to do now because when I ran garmincure3 with original it left the unit on white screen and not being seen by pc anymore.... I will leave it connected till someone gets back to me Thanks.

    Format the nuvi drive using rmprepusb (read on post #1) then install original.
