    For my HWID is B1947 i find it with secret key on my GPS and my firmware actual is V8:30

    Neil:
    Only get it from the main unit software/firmware files, which can be either the GCD [named gupdate.gcd if it's present directly in the device's .System folder but named quite differently if it's from other download sources], or its RGN converted counterpart. The RGN and GCD files have the same BIN components, i.e. boot.bin [Ldr.bin], fw_all.bin etc., they vary only in that the GCD file has some extra code written [to enable the device itself to initiate the flash from the file
    For my backup (patching is for futur)
    ok sorry for my bad english and my blind side! lol
    if i understand, i need made one first update (firmware)I need to have a first update for "GUPDATE.GCD" to use extract using "RGN_tool"
    ok I'm currently recording my product and I run my update with garmin express


    ====================================
    my update is made
    ====================================
    ok i know what is my HWID number , its 1947
    But i dont know what is files i need drag on RGN_Tool.exe for extract to make my boot.bin etc ..

    i dont saw the GCD file inside system folder Unit:

    160605092934783814285223

    not inside main Unit too


    160605093424783814285236

    ====================================================
    But if i use search tool with win explorer i saw these files in system:

    160605102130783814285341

    any try drag on RGN_tools not real luck

    with first file drag:



    160605102803783814285345

    with 4e files:

    Did you see this in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]?: "Firmware ['unit software'] has been factory loaded to your brand new device so there is NO gupdate.gcd present". That file is only present in .System if there's been an update for fw with GarminExpress or WebUpdater, or you place it there manually, to update the fw.
    As i said too "These differently named .gcd files starting with '006' are not used to update the main unit software [firmware], they are for other minor uses and most have only one component BIN file. Don't mess with them."

    I also gave you the direct Garmin links in Post #220 for both HWIDs V8.30. If your device already has V8.30, there is no need to update it of course. Your 2589 has the C4 chip HWID 1947. Here's the link again:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    Open B1947000M.GCD in RGN_Tool and press 'Save' in the first section to get boot.bin. Rename it Ldr.bin to use with the text command as said.

    If you still have problems understanding what to do, just extract the RAR file behind the Spoiler below onto a CLEAN mircoSD card, ensure your unit is fully OFF, insert the card, power it on and wait for it to finish [it'll boot when it has finished copying region 154]. In root of the card you'll find a file named '154_backup.bin' which is your NV backup.

    Please understand that when a device already has the LATEST firmware there is no GUPDATE.GCD loaded by either GarminExpress or WebUpdater. You said your unit already had V8.30 firmware on it when you bought it and because it was factory loaded firmware there's no GUPDATE.GCD in .System and indeed none will be in there until Garmin releases a new version and you load it with GE or WU.

    S’il vous plaît comprendre que lorsqu’un dispositif a déjà le dernier firmware est ne GUPDATE.GCD chargé par GarminExpress ou WebUpdater. Vous avez dit que votre unité avait déjà v8.30 firmware dessus quand vous l’avez acheté et parce qu’il était usine chargé le firmware il est ne GUPDATE.GCD en .System et en effet aucun sera là jusqu'à ce que Garmin sort une nouvelle version et vous chargez avec GE ou WU.

    yes i understand this since your post# 222
    thanks,

    now i have 154_backup.bin ~2Mo
    you did all the job lol

    I think that the backup is more critical than patching firmware...

    ===========================================
    sorry, perhaps because English is not my language but in post # 1 does not necessarily say that for a new gps with no firmware update, we do not just extract the boot.bin, and I was not comfortable to download one of the oficial site garmin that to good with my partitée 2589!
    =========================================
    i dont take luck, i made copy all files to.
    =============================================
    i futur i trying ? patching firmare... , but my future question will be for the section: patching firmware ...

    other time thanks for you and other specialist of GPSPOWER

    i feel better with one real info backup (firmware with personnal serial data ect..)
    ( i hope , i am not alone no understand lol)normaly i am realy not bad

    One think, who was not easy and dangerous for me, because not gcd extract inside my gps, you have 2 firmware 8.30 !
    You know witçh, but not me!
    Lol where you Learning is : nuvi 25x9*C4*software version 8.30 ?
    is one C4
    Where? Best place to learn in always the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] where you'll find this: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. It saves a lot of posting and waiting for answers too.

    OK I'll answer myself lol

    is not big scientist answear, but...

    2 step method (if 2 different firmware v8.30)

    1. If i know my HWID with the secret diagnostic key gps Is HWID=1947
    2. if i trying RNG_tools with de second firmware (not de C4 firmware) HWID= 1758


    this proves that the proper firmware is another with the C4,

    The boot.bin used as Ldr.bin works in SD flash pack to load patched BINs to Drive and DriveSmart devices with or without the HWID written into it. Therefore it will probably work the same to dump region 154. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] [Post #471].

    I have a Nuvi 57 and am trying to backup Nuvi NV (region41) with sd.
    I have done all the steps but when I check the sd card I have a garmin folder and a 41.bin file but the file is 0KB.
    Have I done something wrong?
