I have compiled so-called Mio Emergency Disk.


MD5: 0bb9c502471226b1248889444d752bbc
CRC32: 0e0c297e

Mio Emergency Disk is mainly based on the known 'magic-folder' names exemplarily listet below which are known by MiTAC devices. By nature it is simply an unlocker primarily dedicated to various MiTACS's Mio C, Moov, and Spirit devices EDIT: and Navman units, too. You can use it (perhaps also only as an example how) to get into your MiTAC's Mio C, Moov, and Spirit unit EDIT: and Navman unit, if your SatNav has an SD/MMC-card slot and it is capabable to read from SD/MMC-card. This utility especially is intended to be used by those, who do not want to create their own SD/MMC-card (prepared with small tools) - specific to their SatNav.

The download-link provided above always directs you to latest version of Mio Emergency Disk available.

This utility is provided AS IS. I am not responsible for anything you do to your Mio device using this utility.

1) download and simply unpack archive "" as 1:1 to root (NOT any subfolder) of an SD/MMC-card - use a standard SD/MMC-card
2) modify contents of file <sdcard>\MIO_EMERGENCY_DISK\emergency.mscr to your needs (it is currently customized for the Mio V505 TV)
3) insert SD/MMC-card into your Mio
4) remove any USB-connection with laptop/desktop PC
5) restart your Mio

This is a work in progress!
Feel free to report bugs, make improvement suggestions, etc.pp.

How to find out 'magic-folder' name, demonstrated by the example Mio Spirit S605:

(image courtesy to costas)

Excerpt of MioPocket's Readme file (courtesy to Osprey):

If the above does not help you to find the correct folder to use, connect your Moov to your computer and...
a) If you have a file named "app_startup.txt" in the root of your internal flash drive...
Open it, scroll down to the very bottom and look for the line that starts with RunSDCardExecutable. That line will look something like this...

RunSDCardExecutable(SmartST_CE - Run()): CreateProcess(\Storage card\\auto.exe) failed, error 2

...with "" being the folder name that your device requires. Create that folder on your SD card and proceed to step 4Bii below.

b) If you have a file named "version.ini" on the internal flash drive in \Program Files\Navman\SmartST_CE\...
Open it, look under the [VersionInfo] section for the "Name" entry. Create that folder on your SD card and proceed to step 4Bii below.

c) If you have a file named "device.xml" in the root of the internal flash drive, open it in a text editor. Look for a "" tag and create on your SD card a folder named for what's between "" and "". If that tag does NOT exist, look for a string that starts with "Mantas" and name the folder that. If either method works, proceed to step 4Bii below.

d) Read the firmware version listed (usually in white on black text) when you boot the device up and use the first code that comes after "Cobia". For example, the Moov360's firmware version starts with "COBIA 420", so the folder should start with "Cobia_420" (note the capitalized first letter, the following lower-case and the underscore). After that, for most devices, comes the amount of internal RAM, "_32" for 32MB devices and "_64" for 64MB devices. Finally, North American models append "_NA" on the end and Australian models append "_AU" on the end.

As mentioned here
it should work with C520, because C520 searches for "MioAutoRun.exe", which is part of "Mio Emergency Disk" introduced here.

Added some magic-folders, added two .REG-files to allow touchscreen calibration via importing a .REG-file, and some other additions. Re-uploaded "Mio Emergency Disk v3": see post #1.

With the new Navman series (ex. S100 and later) you need to first connect the unit to a computer and using Windows Explorer look in it's flash drive (should be the first of the two drives that will come up) for a file called "source.txt". Open it and it should look something like this:

Created: 2008-09-26 21:21:36:984375000
Software: MERMAID_405 6.00.0048
Map Data:NT_AU_0802_4014
Map Region:AU
Part Num: 565117210203R02

The "MERMAID_405" bit is what you name the 'magic folder' name for the S100.

S150 MERMAID_425
S200 MERMAID_455

Although this thread initially was thought only to be useful for MiTAC's Mio devices, I completed, ought to abrams's contribution, list of 'magic-folder* names for MiTAC's Navman units in post #1.

Thanks bro. Why was this not published much earlier?

Bug report:
Typo in file emergency.mscr, should be Program Files instaed of ProgramFiles.

Add a disclaimer.exe some Mio's are searching for.

Thanks for your feedback.

1) Fixed typo.
2) Added a (dummy) Disclaimer.exe - the original Disclaimer.exe simply is a renamed explorer.exe.
3) Added some more (useful?) utility-applications, as those also come with MioPocket and other unlockers.
4) Added the whole bunch of MiTAC Navman's 'magic-folder' names - but who needs this?

Re-uploaded "Mio Emergency Disk" (v4). See post #1.

Anyone can use the tool and modify according to his ideas, there are no fixed rules for it. Means it is only in you, to fulfill the script named with more life. For example, if you first of all (additionally?) want to calibrate your unit's touchscreen, when device boots, then you simply add some lines as following prior then Filemanager (by default) gets started:

### Start registry editor to import a .REG-file in order to set correct touchscreen coordinates
If((NOT FileExists(pth\"TOUCHCALIBRATIONDONE.txt")&&FileExists(rfile))
	RunWait(pth\"Program Files\TRE.exe","/s "&rfile)
        Sleep 2500
	Sleep 1000
	Run(pth\"Program Files\SoftReset.exe")

As you might see, the possibilties are endless.

Happy Mortscripting!

good work
you're the man

2 issues i have

(i) k.toolhelp.dll, which is required on windows embedded ce 6 units, is missing. providing toolhelp.dll alone is not enough

(ii) an empty folder MIO_RECOVERY_DISK to store folders/files to be copied onto flash drive, should be there

Got yesterday from Mio Technology Europe the following e-mail concerning 'Mio Emergency Disk' (excerpt):

Original (German):

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

Dies ist ein Hackertool und ist illegal sich in unsere Geräte einzuhacken. Sobald Sie dieses Tool verwenden werden Sie keinen Garantianspruch mehr am Gerät beziehen können.

Mio Technology Europe technischer Support

English (translation):

Ladies and Gentlemen,

This is a hacking tool, hacking is illegal in our devices. Once you use this tool, you will no longer have warranty on the device.

Mio Technology Europe technical Support

Unlocking Illegal?

NO. Read more here. So in case you previously had any doubts about getting into legal trouble for unlocking your MIO so that you can run on it applications of your choice, you don’t have to because as of today, it is officially legal in United States and European Union to run OEM-unauthorized apps.
