PART 1: - Viewing the Extended ROM
You will need a Registry editor.... or if you dont care how it works, you just want to see your files, skip to the end.
Backing up your registry is always a good idea before modifying.
Open your registry editor,
Change the DWORD Value of "MountHidden" to 0
now browse to
Change the DWORD Value of "BootPhase" to 2
you can now exit the editor, and soft - reset your device,
after restarting, you will be able to see the extended_ROM, through the file explorer in much the same way you can see / explore a Storage card.
You now have Read Access to Your Extended Rom,
I'll Post Part 2 containing the information on how to unlock your Extended rom for Write access shortly.
For those of you who just want to see your files,
paste everything in italics into it into it:
save as bootphase.reg
create a new text doc.
paste everything in italics into it
copy both files to your apache.
browse to them, tap them, tap yes, soft reset, all done.
