    Angry

    Another sh*tty tutorial. Can't you just edit it and make it MUCH MORE CLEAR and simple!?! It's taking me houres and houres just to figure out how to enable EcoRoute so I can save 10$ from buying it but it seems like much more hassle. I've copied the files from the "24x5 & 25x5 enable features" folder to the root of my SD card so it was all set correctly with the "Garmin>Updater..." and so on but after that when I rebooted my gps it keeps freezing at the Garmin logo, saying at the bottom (Loading Maps). This procedure better not have bricked my gps ffs!

    Edit: Now if I remove my SD card it boots but everything is the same as before with Ecoroute still locked. Wtf...

    Thumbs down

    Sorry if it sounded rude but I just don't understand how to make this work and I'm an expert in computers since 13.5 years so I really wonder how a random average joe could get this unlocking tutorial to work. There is many many links pointing to several threads that each says different things, some download links are down, there's billions of different Garmin models (2xxx, 3xxx...) but no matter what I follow, nothing seems to work.

    1- I've made my backup with (RGN Tool v0.78) by loading (GUPDATE.GCD) on my Garmin 2555LMT gps. It then created 4.25Mb file named (41.bin) as well as a 752Kb (ldr.bin) file in the updater folder. The update log says the following:
    (nüvi 2xx5 Software Version 8.00, UID: Censored, HWID: Censored
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Parsing "rrgn,41,1:/41.bin"
    Success
    Parsing "reboot"

    2- I've used the modding program with the blue icon, to check the boxes to enable features after selecting on my SD card, the 41.bin which had nothing checked and ldr.bin which had a few checked. I've clicked save then I've edited the (Update.txt) file to change the text from left to the one from right. Pretty much all that changed is the first letter "R" that is now "X" since a thread said X was to restore the bin file.
    rrgn,41,1:/41.bin xrgn,41,1:/41.bin
    reboot reboot
    3- I shutted down the gps, restarted it but nothing happened. It doesn't seem like it restored the new bin file with the unlocked features. When I go in applications > EcoRoute, it is still locked and now I'm out of ideas... at a point that I'm almost considering wasting 10$ to Garmin rather than lose another 10 houres messing around. I just don't want to pay mostly because I'm against their new policies of removing features that previously used to be free. Thanks if you can help!

    You seem to have this tut confused with the region 41 NV backup one, as your post mentions 41.bin and your images show this:

    n6z7

    ouvn

    Of course it can't work. You've saved 41.bin instead of 140.bin and then tried to mod the ldr.bin. Start over again, delete everything you've done [but save a copy of your 41.bin as it could help you if your nuvi ever bricks]. Re-read the tut in Post #1 here and note which features you need to check. TTS for instance is required to be enabled or you'll lose the spoken street names. I'd check everything except ASR (your unit doesn't have Speech Recognition) and EcoRoute Purchase and HD.

    1- Hmm, with the RGN_Tool the only thing I can open is the file (GUpdate.gcd) of about 40Mb. Once I do it I get the following from the picture below so then I click save and it creates a 752Kb (Boot.bin) file.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    2- According to what I've read, I had to rename this boot file to (ldr.bin) then place it on my SD card in (Garmin\Updater\1371) along a text file named (Updater.txt) with the following below written in it:
    rrgn,41,1:/41.bin
    reboot

    3- After I just shutdown the GPS and restart it. It then creates a backup file at the root of my SD card and it names it (41.bin) as it's what the updater.txt told him to do.

    4- Now I open the modding tool and check the boxes you told me on the 41.bin file that is at the root of my SD card. I even did it for the ldr.bin so both have the same features enabled, then I reboot the unit again... but it doesn't do anything. I even tryed to change (rrgn,41,1:/41.bin) by (xrgn,41,1:/41.bin) as a backup tutorial I've found said it was the way to tell the gps to restore the updated 41.bin file you just edited, into the gps yet it still doesn't work.

    Something is wrong within these steps which I am told to do from what I've read in the tutorial but I can't tell where exactly x_x

    Edit: I ended up going in another thread which I already been before but somehow forgot about it. The tutorial at the link below is wayyy more simple and straight forward. I just download the right version, unrar it to an SD card, edit the 140.bin if I want to then I reboot the device and it finaly worked at last! :D Still thanks for your time.

    I'm pleased you are sorted, but as i said you are confusing 41.bin with 140.bin, the latter is the one [the only one] you mod for additional features. That other thread is in fact much older than this one and there is a link in it's initial post back to this newer thread. Just be aware that the kits in that thread use boot.bin/ldr.bin from V6.30 fw and we are now up to V8.00 for 24/25x5.

    Oh really it's much older? Damn, perhaps it is why I have a big issue now. I thought everything was working but obviously it was too great to be totaly true. Yes now (EcoRoute) is unlocked but when I plug my gps in my car, it says the "charger for traffic info" isn't valid/working anymore so I'm now stuck with a much much worse problem than before! (-_-) Removing my SD card and rebooting the gps didn't change anything so I hope I'll be able to fix this soon :/

    Are the firmware files here at v8.00? I wonder if it's possible please to link me the latest version of the 140.bin file I need to use? That would be really appreciated as I'm all lost with the billions of posts, quotes, diff threads, versions and so on that are available all across the forum x_x

    Do you have any idea why the FM transmitter isn't working anymore? Also will I be able to make updates through Garmin Express for my firmware if I "mod/unlock" features from the gps with a custom 140.bin?

    I have a backup of my 41.bin which is a region I guess? I've read many confusing threads here and waste countless houres and never found how to backup the 140.bin file, actualy I never found it anywhere on my gps and the only way I've been able to get one is by downloading a rar in the thread you told me was outdated.

    People seems to say the 2555LMT comes with the GTM26-36 cable and that it stops working when you update the 140.bin but others say the 140.bin isn't suppose to toucht the GTM, yet the traffic doesn't work anymore and nothing in these threads helps me at all to fix the issue so I'm still totaly lost :/
