    If you want to try using original boot.bin, follow the general procedure in this tut for x0>x2 substituting the correct fw of course: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    I have a US nuvi 1450 that I want to convert to a Japanese nuvi 1480 or 1365. I have created a 1480 gcd and a 1650 gcd using the RGN tool. With the original 1450 boot bin and the Japanese fw_all.bin and Japanese resources.bin.

    Can I flash the new 1480.gcd (or 1650.gcd) by placing it in the system folder in the garmin with the name gupdate.gcd and rebooting the garmin?

    Or do I need to use updater.exe with a out.rgn file?

    Thanks in advance

    It will probably will not flash as gupdate.gcd particularly if you are using the same boot bin as your current US fw. If you are determined to try, do it as out.rgn using update.exe. You should be able to flash back to full us fw the same way, and you probably will want to as I doubt you will be happy with the results in my experience.

    Well, actually, it should flash as GCD normally, as long as you set the correct HWID (972 I guess) and firmware version (it must be different from your currently installed firmware version) for all the regions with RGN_Tool.
    But GCD files are not quite suitable for such experiments. For example, if for some reason GCD file was not deleted after flashing (as far as I remember GCD files are deleted by the newly flashed firmware when it's started for the first time) and the converted firmware crashes and you flash the original firmware with RGN file, then the original firmware would probably start fashing that GCD file again, and you would have to use different cure firmwares to delete that GCD file.
    So, in conclusion, you'd better learn entering into pre-boot mode and flashing firnwares with RGN files. Because you're trying to do some advanced stuff and you are very likely to need such skills anyway.

    Hi, excellent thread and tool!

    I have a Nuvi 2585tv. I am unable to set the splash / startup screen by simply setting an imagine in the photo folder on the device, so i assume a method like this is my best chance.

    I have got the latest .rgn file from garmin.

    Is it possible with this model? anything i need to check?

    I found 4 files xxxxxxxx.GCD in the system folder of the device as well...

    Nice one, thanks ! i found the correct logo.bin in that thread.

    One thing i cant see is when i am in the rgn tool, how do i extract the boot.bin from my rgn file?

    i am using v0.84. I cant see a command line as mentioned in the instruction for the tool....

    I suspect the RGN file i got from a forum is not good. when i load it with the tool, i assume i should see a boot.bin file that i can save a copy of?
    Code:

    dosent let me download it .... :-(

    Mode Edit: Actually you can dl via that link. Right click on the page, select 'View Page Source'/'View source' depending on your browser, and in window that opens you can copy the rgn file link from inbeween notes 1) and 2). N.B. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] required these links to be coded, please don't post direct links.

    RGN_Tool work only with Garmin proper software! Nuvi 2585tv have another SW based on Linux. So the most interesting and useful features is not applicable for your device...
