Sorry if this is just another old question.

I followed the steps on the unbricking and now I got it to load up I'm assuming using MIO thing.
I forgot to mention b4 that I had deleted my S/N by flashing the HDD

now when I connect the USB it doesn't recognize it and I tried running the Magellan_Maestro_4250_4_60_Rel1 and it doesn't recognize my unit.

where do I go from here?
I downloaded the Mag4250.zip but skunks' instructions were to run it from the unit and how do i do that?

Trunks: your not suppose to run Magellan_Maestro_4250_4_60_Rel1, you have to use winrar to unpack it (right click/extract here) and then follow my insructions using the extracted files. and the Mag4250.zip is a direct backup (unzipped) to be copied to the HDD (root) of your unit once USB connectivity is made.

SP: see my post half way down page 4 of this thread for detailed instructions.

Is there anyway any of this could be applied to a 4050?

bigbipper: no idea, never tired it, but if your 4050 is bricked, it cant hurt it anymore if you try it *if your unit ISN'T bricked, I dont recommend trying it*... and if it does work you'll be credited with confirming that it does work on that model.

Hi Skunk
Appreciate your help and instructions which has unbricked the unit (at least).

I got the unit to the where I could access via USB and it had some basic menu for battery etc. However, I downloaded the MAG4250.zip from your server which I first thought was more than a 1G but somehow download failed due to size limit or something. Later that same file is not 69M only. I unzipped and copied to root of the unit but it now has gives the error of "navigator is not compatible with the unit " I should have backed up the files on the unit (did not follow basic fundamentals ...)

Please advise how I can get out of this? Is my Serial Number still there? I will try to download the file from my work (perhaps Comcast is restricting file size nowadays and therefore cant download the entire file). I tried to download the GPSbackup.rar (1.7M file) and it got terminated at 500M.

Appreciate if you can suggest the next steps please.

I thought of asking a few more questions:
1. What is the size of the MAG4250.zip
2. If MAG4250.zip process fails, then is the GPSbackup.rar the next option?
3. If so, will I have space issue on the HDD of the unit? DO I need to delete or reformat? IF so, what App do I install? Where can I get instructions to install the correct or choice of app ie OEM or the other one.

I intend to try this tonight. Anyone out there can guide me?

Thanks

Hello Skunk, Oh Man.
Many thanks for your support, a lot of hard work done here.
Recently I have found this side and instantly found on it
what I was looking for.
Working on removing that annoying Warning Screen
I accidently delete S/N of my Magellan 4250. Well,
Getting back to normal, restoring it back as I found out
it is impossible, at least for now.
I could not, did not find the answer anywhere.
So much time spend, end up with nothing.
With your instructions I beautify restored it now to Igo8 as the pictures demonstrate.
However, just for my stubbornness, I will not stop looking
and constantly trying to get back to my original version of 4250.
For you guys here are the pictures of restored Magellan with IGo8, working just fine.
Many thanks SKUNK for your hard work in this matter.
