So its toast then?
Flash memory corrupted. Device cannot update 5 region and ramloader freezed.
Sony SL10=>HP 1930=>1940=>Toshiba e755=>Loox N520=>Acer n311+Huawei ETS688=> Fujitsu-Siemens Loox N560 WM6=>Dell Axim x51v=> Huawei s7 s-105 (FW 2.2.2 Sweden) + Nokia N78. Garmin Forerunner 405. I love flash Garmin devices.
So its toast then?
He have nuvi 780 with boot BLK 0872 not 0754 like other nuvi 7xx series.
And when he try to update boot BLK 0754 nuvi hangs like if you try flash Japan FW on EU nuvi with no changed FW.
Your nuvi its no toast, we must find original FW for your nuvi.
I look for correct FW 2 days but no luck, (if we find we will upload here), kunix also search FW for you.
But i dont know when or if we can find corect FW for your nuvi.

I then tried the Original, and it says "No updates are available for your product". Same with the Cure now.
I renamed the Original 087201000540.rgn to 087201000XXX.rgn, and it does upload again, but without the "Loader" message we got on the last one. Just "Loader Loading..." when its done.
Updater DOES now report that 5.40 is installed on the device! I think we are getting close!

Success!!! I took a stock 760_290 Firmware HWID 0754, and created a Cure FW (075401000290). This one took, and WORKED! I was able to remove the GUPDATE.GCD from the mass storage!
Then I created an ORIGINAL 2.90 FW, and used Updater again. It boots up now! But gets stuck on the "Do not attempt to enter route info" warning. It just beeps on the "Agree" button.
I'll fiddle a bit more and report back soon
Installed 5.40 via Garmin Express, did its thing successfully. But Its still stuck on the Warning screen.. Hitting agree just beeps at me.
I'll keep playing, but any ideas?
Try hard resetting it:
Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press “Yes” to reset
I have a feeling that some of the software files in flash may be the incorrect files now that i have swapped the firmware around. Can somebody send me a dump of all the files on their Garmin's mass storage, minus the maps?
