    Unhappy 64s to 64sJ, cross flashing "system file missing", maybe HWID check

    I want to buy a garmin TFcard map: Japan hiking TOPO plus v3
    on amazon.co.jp and use it on my gpsmap 64s。

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    51OMoDqnarL. SY355


    But many people tell me that the map only works on 64sJ(Japan)
    because the map words are based on shift-jis code(64sJ)。
    UTF-8 device(64s) can not use this Japanese word TOPO map.

    But i love hiking so much and this TOPO map.

    After using RGN_Tool to mix 64s SW Version 4.5(HWID 1859) and 64SJ Version 2.10(new HWID 1859)
    and cross flashing into my device,boot normally, but "System Software missing"

    OMG crying... my pool garmin 64s...

    USB mode is OK, i can read the new XML file, 64sJ.
    Garmin Exress.exe show 64sJ too and unit can flash back 64s.

    After browsing many websites "years"...

    finally, maybe the same situation i have found:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    "64s to a Different Region"

    and
    @kunik finally help him fix this problem:
    64s SEA fw_all.bin checks for HWID and UnitID and displays "SYSTEM SOFTWARE MISSING" in case of mismatch.
    Try using the attached fw_all.bin v2.40 with the above check DISABLE.

    It is so wonderful. 64s to 64s SEA works, maybe 64sJ also.

    How can I make a firwares without HWID check?

    or some good kind people send me a patched fw_all.bin(gpsmap 64sJ) for HWID or UnitID check DISABLE.


    I want to try this fw to buy the TOPO map.
    Pls help me, so appreciate. THX

    It really works.so glad so appreciate for your help. @kunik

    I am so close to buy a new 64sJ unit only for one or two Japan hiking trip.
    How anti-human the shift-jis code map is!

    Today world wide hiking-loving people feel more safe than before.
    We can buy a shift-jis language code map to protect with our outdoor trip.


    ps. Garmin Express.exe will send your unit a new garmin origin .GCD(64s HWID1859)
    and a .img every time you connect the unit with computer(win 10).

    you can del them or uninstall GE.exe

    Thank you again, Kunik
