    My model of nuvi is the European 2445LM.

    After trying to enable some featuers in my nuvi, I found out that my bluetooth was not able to be activated and further more, my gtm 25 is no longer being able to detected. I decided to restore my nuvi to its previous state by changing the update.txt to:

    xrgn,41,1:/41.bin
    reboot

    and place it along with the 41.bin file created in the backup stage.
    the location is Garmin\Updater\1371\

    However, after inserting the microSD into my nuvi 2445LM, it didn't boot into the software loading mode but loaded as usual and may I know what I have done wrong?

    @fracessco10
    If were you modding features in region 140 you should be able to restore your rgn 140 backup with xrgn command. It that's what you modded but didn't make a back up of 140, then open the current 140.bin with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and look what is checked. Make a copy of it and re-enable the required features, save it and then write it back with xrgn.

    Do you have reg 139/140 backup? I don't remember if you have to restore them too, but read [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    @catymag
    No, I didn't backup the reg 139/140. and attempts were made several of times without success with reg 41 restore.

    Yes, I did.
    2) 1:/41.bin mean what 41.bin must be in root on SD...
    Yes, that's the file created when I made the backup for my nuvi with:
    rrgn,41,1:/41.bin
    reboot

    I didn't make a backup for region 140 and by using the 2nd microSD, I managed to get the reg_140.bin file and with Roger's app, I can see everything is checked, except 2: ecoRoute Purchase and PhoneLink(?).

    My problem is, I plugged in the gtm 25 before enabling some features in the "Enable features in nuvi 22xx, 23xx, 24xx and 24x5 & 25x5" by catymag and everything related to the traffic seemed fine. But after enabling, at first I noticed the bluetooth symbol where my nuvi didn't have this feature before, however, I couldn't connect my phone to the nuvi via bluetooth. I didn't check the 3d terrain, building. and definitely I didn't see the option of playing mp3, except the audiobook player which preinstalled in my nuvi and neither the video player. After checking with second gtm 25 (with european traffic subscription), I can confirm that my nuvi has no longer have the traffic info option. When every time when I plugged in the gtm, it acted as a power cord.


    This is what I created in another microSD: :\GARMIN\updater\1371\
    2 files were within the 1371 folder:
    update.txt (1KB)
    with the line:
    xrgn,140,1:/reg_140.bin
    reboot

    and reg_140.bin (20KB)

    After inserted into my nuvi and reboot, nothing happened. It just loaded normally and bluetooth option is still there but not able to be enabled. And traffic info (i will check with gtm 25 in a while and report)

    Ok, after creating the 140.bin, viewing with Roger's app, ticking the necessary function (some are not working with my nuvi 2445LM european version HWID 1371), writing the restore code into update.txt (as suggested by Neil), nothing happened after inserting the microSD and reboot. However, I tried again with gtm 25, and the nuvi detected it as a traffic receiver instead of just a power cord. Thanks guys for helping me out. And the info of SD card issues within this forum was really helpful (the microSD that I used for backing up reg 41 doesn't work with backing up reg 140.)

    Wondering if the bluetooth function is "really" available for this model (after enabling the feature, the bluetooth keeps enabling and disabling itself).

    Wonder no more, it's a hardware limitation. There is no Bluetooth module in 2445, so it's pointless to check that when modding rgn140 and only have a nonfunctional icon. Similarly there's no microphone either so nor will ASR work. Other features such as Custom Main Menu, 3D Buildings and 3D Terrain [DEM] aren't available in firmware, but it's always possible that a later fw update will include such features [unlikely now though].

    May be I do not understand you but:

    1. Where is ldr.bin (engine of process)???
    2. Why you had typed 1:/reg_140.bin (destination in root of SD) but you had put reg_140.bin in other folder like 1:\GARMIN\updater\1371\?

    I don't think you misunderstood Giomen, even if ldr.bin was in 1371 folder the reg_140.bin is in the wrong place. Which is why it didn't work to flash his reg_140.bin of course.

    @fracessco10
    If you do want to get rid of the BT icon and get your 2445 back to how it was, firstly ensure your 2445 is running V8.20 firware, update it if necessary. Then do this:

    1. Open a copy your reg_140.bin with Mod_3xxx.exe and check/uncheck as below:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] [or check how you want it but definitely don't check ecoRoute HD, ecoRoute Purchase, Bluetooth or ASR].

    2. Extract this file directly to a clean microSD: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and then place your modded reg_140.bin in the root of the microSD [that means to place it with, not in, the Garmin folder].

    3. Ensure the device is fully off then insert the card and turn it on. You should see 'Loader' appear on the screen. Let it finish flashing, it will then boot and the useless BT icon should be gone. You'll also have a backup of your current rgn140 in the root of the card as bup_140.bin.

    In Garmin.rar file is Garmin\Updater\1371. Inside 1371 is V8.20 ldr.bin and Update.txt with
    rrgn,140,1:/bup_140.bin
    xrgn,140,1:/reg_140.bin
    reboot
