    ? Adding a language to Forerunner 610

    5d59qh

    Hello,

    I am accepting ideas how can an additional language be added to Foreruner 610:

    - no file system like in nuvis
    - no language strings in the firmware
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    - no acces to updater.exe
    - no SD card (access to regions)

    Thanks,

    This firmware is strange as hell. It contains only bare boot.bin, but it's 1.24 MB long.

    @ dasilvarsa

    Same as the GPS antenna I suppose. It is prebuilt in the strap. Really small and compact compared to its ancestors. Lets say Forerunner 305 where the antenna was enormous and was very irritating for wearing. This one is much more elegant.

    @ kunix

    Isn't it? Can you write what is it written inside? There are no text strings at all inside. Maybe it is criped or compressed some how. Maybe the text is on other rgns but how to access them?

    Looks like 276C and some other device SW where resource was packed with certain algorithm!

    You need Adrenalin or NeAdrenalin at choice for help...

    @ Gio

    Thanks for the clue...Sounds compicated. I didn't want to bother Neadrenalin for that. Alright, if that is the only wayl

    I was able to find the function which flashes (supposedly) the firmware:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    I've extracted the data which is passed to this function: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (there are two firmware regions: 0x0E and 0x55).
    But I'm afraid, the data is compressed somehow (see the strange structure at the beginning of both bin files and compare it with the file endings) and I can't decompress it yet.

    You are absolutely right about Neadrenalin!
    PouchX may be? He held in his hands a lot of devices...

    You know what Christ says: "keep peace with each other". I respect Neadrenalin very much. He helped me a lot. I respect you too. Lets not continue this topic in this direction. Thank you.
