    Both boot.bin and bootloader simply don't parse data in region 41 (unlike fw_all.bin), so their behavior is not affected by region 41.

    This is because writing region 41 (and others) over USB is disabled (in the software, not hardware) in boot.bin and bootloader.

    You should clearly understand which piece of software is working in each case.
    When you're using update.txt, ldr.bin is working. But it's not implemented in bootloader.
    When you're flashing RGN file, things are more complicated.
    When the device is in pre-boot mode, bootloader is working initially.
    But then you can flash RGN file with boot.bin, and boot.bin will be executed, and receive/flash the rest of the regions.
    If you flash RGN file without boot.bin, bootloader will receive/flash the rest of the regions.

    Bootloader and boot.bin have a number of regions not writable over USB (software limitation, including region 41).
    Boot.bin has a number of regions not writable over update.txt (software limitation, usually not including region 41).

    In your particular case boot.bin can't write regions at all (over USB and by update.txt), but bootloader can write regions.
    I think this is caused by the difference in the flashing algorithms and partially broken hardware.

    So most probably your Garmin doesn't work due to corrupted region 41, which you can't erase. Remind me in two weeks, I will try to make the payload, ok?
    Aslo it's possible that fw_all.bin can't write flash regions similarly to boot.bin. We can't do anything then. But also we can't know for sure right now
    Hi, If you have time and will, please make the payload.

    Would like to Wipe region 41. Other thing I noticed is when updater.exe successfully flashes boot.bin only rgn, after the reboot, there is NO change to region 5 and still stuck on SW 6.40.

    Thanks in advance.

    @kunix,

    Hi any chance you make that payload to erase corrupt rgn 41? I still have hope to jump start my 265w
