Guide to unlocking the Apache Extended - ROM

, posted: 29-Jun-2006 12:24

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,

Browse to:

HKLM\System\StorageManager\Profiles\TRUEFFS_DOC1

Change the DWORD Value of "MountHidden" to 0

now browse to

HKLM\System\StorageManager\AutoLoad\TRUEFFS_DOC1

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,

Open notepad;

paste everything in italics into it into it:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\AutoLoad\TRUEFFS_DOC1]
"Bootphase"=dword:00000002
"Order"=dword:00000001
"LoadFlags"=dword:00000001
"DriverPath"="Drivers\\BuiltIn\\TrueFFS1"

save as bootphase.reg


create a new text doc.

paste everything in italics into it

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\Profiles\TRUEFFS_DOC1]
"MountHidden"=dword:00000000
"Folder"="Extended_ROM"
"PartitionDriver"=""
"Name"=""
"DefaultFileSystem"="FATFS"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\StorageManager\Profiles\TRUEFFS_DOC1\FATFS]
"DataCacheSize"=dword:00000080
"EnableWriteBack"=dword:00000001
"FormatTfat"=dword:00000001
"Flags"=dword:00000014





save as
Mhidden.reg

copy both files to your apache.

browse to them, tap them, tap yes, soft reset, all done.

Good tips... How much is the freed area (or soon to be freed, when you provide the tip to actually write on that area)?


Author's note by inane, on 29-Jun-2006 15:46

total size of Extended ROM area is 9.93MB, the telecom & wm5 files take up 1.32MB of that. which leaves 8.61MB of ext-rom space for you to use! you can repartition the Ext-rom size, but Its a much more detailed process that I'll have to spend a bit of time writing.

Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!


Who knows! 


but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!


I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are
