To rvernica:

I think possibly it might be easy to replicate that screen you posted a picture of (I "think" as I have not attempted it yet as for a lack of time).

In the "Script" folder, there are "configuration setting" files such as "Config", "DPMS", and "Navigator." Open them with notepad and check them out, I think it's only a matter of writing new "configuration setting" files (with proper x,y coordinates or else it'll all jumble up on top of itself) and creating new ".ico" files (pictures for the desktop) to use.

There may be a better way to do this as the picture posted shows all the icons with the "shortcut arrow" on the bottom left corner of each. The way I described, if it works, will use your created ".ico" file picture, not a shortcut picture.

Having said this, I'm not sure why the "Navigator" configuration setting does not work. It seems to point at the correct file "MioNav.exe" in the "Script" folder. Then, when you click on the "mio_ico", it changes the appearance to the "mio_ico2" (the blur effect that occurs when clicking makes it go from "mio_ico" over to "mio_ico2"). Possibly need to point it at the "miomap.exe" in the backup "miomap2" folder? Maybe it's the "ppath.txt" file, maybe it's the "script.mscr" that needs to be changed?

Hi,

By getting that screen I don't mean only getting something that looks like it. I mean getting Windows Explorer running. For example, the bottom bar is the Windows Taskbar and the bottom left button is the Windows Start button. So, what you see there is the real Windows CE Desktop, not some fake where you arrange some images to look like it.

I copied the Taskbar.exe file from the C310Auto package and when I run it I get an error: "Could not find taskbar window!". I think the Windows on C220 has a lot of files missing.

Hello all,

I just bought a Mio C220 at CC. Looks working fine. Now to hack the thing, I am not able to download the script file from the links in this topic. Any alternative option?

Thanks people...

=====DISCLAIMER: Do this at your own risk. Also this may invalidate your warranty.

Simplified instructions: Mio C220 "Hack"

NOTE: Before doing anything, obtain both the "Transfer_Mio_C250" -Hack- and the "Script_3.24r" from http://foro.todopocketpc.com/showthread.php?p=936930#post936930 For the "Transfer_Mio_C250" -Hack-, the link that you download from states "TRANSFER MIO C250 Hack", but nothing downloaded states "Hack" in the name. That being said, the instructions below will state the displayed -name- of what is being accessed.

0. Both of the downloads are compressed rar files, uncompress both of them. Put the "Script_3.24r" folder on the C drive (for convenience of access when running the transfer, not the desktop. Double click on your C: drive and put the folder right there). Put the "Transfer_Mio_C250" folder on the desktop (if it is not already there). If you do this, then you will not lose track of anything if you are following these instructions. This is because you can refer back to this step to see where the folders are. Now to really begin.

1. With your Mio powered on, do a "hard reset" by pressing and holding the power button until the device turns off (about 5-10 seconds).

2. Power your Mio back on (it will boot up. Do NOT access anything, leave it on the screen it boots to).

3. Now start your software: "Transfer_Mio_C250" (from step 0. The only time you will see "Hack" is when this application is open).

4. Connect your device to your computer and it should be recognized (indicated by the gold colored chain link looking icon in the lower right corner by your time clock. Before connection it should look like a broken chain like {} and after proper connection it should now looking like a complete loop).

5. Before proceeding, KNOW AND REMEMBER that there will be TWO separate MioMap folders (one MioMap folder inside another MioMap folder). The order of folders to follow is "\My Flash Disk\MioMap\MioMap". Rename the final "MioMap" folder to "MioMap2". Now the order of folders will be "\My Flash Disk\MioMap\MioMap2". The "MioMap2" folder contains your original MioMap data (you renamed it to keep it as a backup folder of the original files).

6. Now, you should still be in the folder where it displays "MioMap2". Create a new folder here named "MioMap" (NOT INSIDE OF "MioMap2" but on the screen you are in. The purpose is to take the place of the original folder that WAS named "MioMap" that you just renamed "MioMap2". For the moment it will be empty). Your folder structure should now be "\My Flash Disk\MioMap\MioMap =AND= MioMap2". You will no longer touch "MioMap2".

7. Now put your Mio DVD (from manufacturer) into your DVD drive and copy the folder contents of the DVD "MioMap" folder (from location of "install/MioMap" ) over to your empty created "MioMap" folder. You may have to create new folders, properly name them, then copy the contents into the created folders. When you are done with this step, your DVD "MioMap" folder and your created "MioMap" folder will contain the exact same contents.

8. Now go to your downloaded "Script_3.24r" folder (from step 0). There will be two folders inside. One named "Script" (NOT "SCRIPTS") and another named "MioMap".

9. Now transfer the contents of the "MioMap" just accessed in step 8 over to your created empty "MioMap" folder in "\My Flash Disk\MioMap\MioMap". Make sure you are transferring the files into the correct "MioMap" folder. If you accidentally transfer to the wrong folder, your GPS unit will explode. Not really.

10. Now create a folder named "Script" so your folder structure is now "\My Flash Disk\Script" (not "Scripts"). Remember the "Script" folder from step 8? Ok, now transfer the folder contents of that "Script" folder into the empty one you just created.

11. Now with step 10 done, click on the lower right button to close "Transfer_Mio_C250" (it is the lower right button that says "sortir". Do NOT click on the upper right hand "X" to close it because that does not truly exit the software). Make sure you are disconnected (the connect graphic should now be gone from the screen of your Mio, if it is still there, then you are likely still connected. When you are absolutely sure you are disconnected, you can pull the transfer cable out from your Mio).

12. Do a "hard reset" (press down on the power button for about 5-10 seconds until the Mio turns off, then you need to turn it back on. just like you did for steps 1 and 2).

13. Upon boot being done, click on "MioMap" (the file manager will open now instead, because the hack file you copied over is actually a file manager that replaced the file that was "MioMap").

14. Now go to the created "MioMap" folder in "\My Flash Disk\MioMap\MioMap" and run "AUTOPATCHER.exe". A small window will pop up. Now press "ok" and your Mio will reboot (you want this to happen).

15. Once it loads, you will hear the windows music tone (just like when you start your computer). Click again on "MioMap" and the file manager will run. You will now see your icons displayed, as well as a wallpaper of a tachometer (that you can change if you want to, but not directly from your gps. you would have to create a wallpaper and name it "back", then use it to replace the -bitmap- file "back" that is located in the "Script" folder). All the icons should be functional (I am stating this because the miomap icon did not work for me the first go around. now it works after having done it my 2nd time. maybe I misnamed a file). You're pretty much set unless I happened to unclearly state something. If I did, please post a reply and I will edit this post to try to make it clearer.

16. Just in case you have to hard reset (if the Mio freezes while playing a video, etc.), you will need to again run "AUTOPATCHER.exe" to get things up and running again (repeat steps 13-14).

Note:

Sortir = Exit
Renommer = Rename
Suprimer = Delete
Annuler = Cancel
New Dossier = New Folder

If someone can verify this procedure as being correct, I will reference it in the FAQ.

Thanks

rvernica,

Sorry, but I am not sure how to reply to your question. What do you mean by "back to normal?" As in, what state do you want your Mio to be in?

@kvasir

By back to normal I mean getting the Windows as I was when I bought it. I don't worry about the "My Flash Disk" directory.

Thanks.

rvernica,

If your Windows OS is shot, then I am not sure how to correct it.

The first time I attempted the "hack", the miomap icon from the "hack" did not work so I deleted the miomap2 folder and renamed the original back to miomap (after a lot of troubleshooting). After a hard restart, my first miomap icon did absolutely nothing (i thought i made the gps a brick). Had to reinstall software (from manufacturer's DVD), but I believe you know how to do that (if not, it's easy. just a warning, the progress bar will hang. let it run for about 2 hours and it'll be done). Everything at your own risk ^^; That experience is why I did the above instructions (so anybody else trying it could do step by step what I did when I got the "hack" working properly).

-risk: gps = brick
pro: video, mp3
con: brick (unless you need another brick, then it is a pro)

This is the Scrip from Antonio, a spaniard, modified by my friend PloPlo and by me, I have attached a photo of my model car as "back.bmp"
If you needed, I can send the script.
