SeDBx Quick Guide

SeDBx Quick Guide
Here is a quick guide to SeDBx, I see a few users asking for help, even though the interface is very simple...

The image above shows the correct setup for a W200c, the setup for other models is the same:-

MCU 1 = Main Flash File (large MCU file)
MCU 2 = File System (smaller MCU file)
MCU 3 or 4 = Update Agent (smallest MCU file - FOTA/EROM/CERT)
CUST = BIB or BIC file (This is needed or phone will be in config error - This option is AKA Complete Phone)

All that needs to be done now is click "Flash" button.

(MCU files can be in any order, but I would suggest to use like the above image, since this is the correct flash order, Update Agent is not a required image, you do not have to update this)



1. Connect Phone without battery to cable, click "Boot", insert battery.
2. No need to select model, the software will select the model via the phones TAC, if the phones TAC does not exist in the TAC database, please select the phone manually from the list. (also post your TAC and model in the discussion thread)
3. GDFS Info on Boot - This option will display useful information such as CXC and CDA version, note this option does not work for all phones, W200 is an example of this.
4. Load/Save from/to Ini, once you have setup the required flash files, you can click "Save to Ini" and it will store the names for future use, note the Ini settings are read auto on phone boot, if the TAC does not exist, select the model manually and then click "Load from Ini"
5. If you get any kind of flash error, try the process again, if the error still exists, click "Generate Log" and post the output in the discussion thread, we will attempt to resolve your issue.


NOTE: Write GDFS has been kept as an R&D Option for the moment, as we see many people writing GDFS to their phones without the knowledge of what they are actually doing, so Read GDFS is only useful for education at the moment or other advanced use (Hi FTS )

Use ID Loader, this option is not available for all models, W200 is an example of this, in this mode the GDFS is read in one block, so the blocks count can be left at 1.
When ID Loader is not selected, the CS loader will be used, if you are not sure how many GDFS blocks are active, use the greatest value.
Records count can be increased from the default, note some phonebook records can be greater than 4096.
Add ASCII comments, will add ASCII to the dump, this will allow easier reading by the end user.
Dump While Reading, this option dumps the GDFS output to the listview, note this will slow the GDFS reading by a small amount.
