GDFS Backup

This this tutorial is about GDFS and how to back it up for safety reasons

GDFS is the phones “stash”, where all settings and calibration data is stored (this also goes for the firmwares IMEI-resource as well as the SIM locks). Similar to other brands use of NVRAM (Non-Volatile Random Access Memory).

GDFS contains a very important variables need to start phone ! If the gdfs is corrupted then starting the phone will not start turning to a dead phone ! GDFS rarely gets damaged ! But as a precaution we make a backup of GDFS so that in case your GDFS variables are messed up then we can restore the backup and save the phone !

Your phone’s GDFS is unique to your phone

Before we backup GDFS you need to Install USB FLash drivers required for programs like XS++, SeTool 2, and Far Manager. Please Install USB FLash Drivers ! Follow this tutorial ! Also Another Tutorial here !

Ensure that your phone is charged to 100%

We will now use XS++ to backup GDFS. Download XS++

Backup of GDFS !

Shutdown phone .. Reinsert battery !
Start XS++
Click on connect in XS++
holding C connect phone to USB cable ! don’t leave C untill XS++ says ready for operation !

Connecting phone to XS++ is the same as connecting phone to SEUS.

Now In configuration select GDFS..
Click Backup GDFS…!
wait for few seconds..!! you get your GDFS back up file in XS++ backup Directory !
Keep the copies of your GDFS safely !!!!

Checkout the pictures of XS++ in action backing up the GDFS.


Here is a video tutorial of GDFS Backup, made by Peti, enjoy the music. ;)

Note: You can use XS++ to backup gdfs of any Sony Ericsson db2010,db2012,db2020 phones.

Backup GDFS only Once for the first time !!

Warning > Do not try to write a GDFS. First Read This Tutorial and Make your choice.

That’s It Folks. Your First Time with XS++.
Now you go ahead and flash your phone. Check out the tutorials section for customizing your phone with flash menus, Walkman Skins, Menu Modding etc.

  12. kejul says

    My Phone Was Dad I Have For Gdfs is Not Start. I Havent My Backup Of my gdfs. What Can I Do. Help Me . Wehre Can I Found This Gdfs File.

  13. Peti says

    GDFS can’t be provided, it must be hacked to use on a different phone. But probably you don’t need it. What you need is to reflash main (mbn file)!!

  14. reinerh says

    why didnt it work for my cellphone!!!!k800i

  15. Akshay says

    what’s up ? gdfs backup is simple thing
    what’s wrong with your phone

  16. Peti says

    Or just no drivers installed.-.-

  17. kos says

    Firstly my k610i java stopped working. A friend of mine suggested me to upload a new firmware. I did so and after flashing, when i started my phone it said: “Insert correct SIM”. I typed: “rigt-#-left-left-#-left-#” and in system info i saw this “network: locked 5″.
    how can i fix this?

  18. Akshay says

    unlock your phone now
    http://www.akshayy.com/sonyericsson/tutorials/unlock-db2020-se-phones/

  19. kos says

    Thanks. I’ve gone through these steps but it still says: “Insert correct SIM” . I wonder if the quick access patch is not properly applied with Setool

  20. Akshay says

    after QA patch
    apply unlock patch……

  21. Akshay says

    you read all tutorial once again
    its sure to fix..

  22. Smiley989 says

    i cant find my gdfs backup
    my xs ++ doesnt have any back up folder
    am i usin a fake version?

  23. Peti says

    Did you back it up yourself?-.-
    And did you download XS++ from Seflashing.extra.hu or so?

  24. bakare says

    pls i ave a k770i locked on t mobile and when i put my new sim it says incorrect sim. pls how do i fix this. i have been reading your post and all this ou guys are saying is like greek to me. pls help me

  25. bakare says

    also pls what program will b used to open the XS++ file because i ave downloaded xs++_v3.1.rar file now and i dont know what program i will use to open it. pls help

  26. Peti says

    You unlock it with a tutorial that you can find on this site.
    To open rar files, you can use WinRAR ( http://rarlab.com/ ), but that is basic PC knowledge, not flashing stuff.

  27. Peti says

    Mail sent.

  28. Mike says

  35. Peti says

    That previous message may help you.

  36. Smiley989 says

    when i go to back up my gdfs. it says that gdfs backup is successful but then when i look for it i can never find it. Its is assigned to a folder in xs++ but i cant find it

  37. Peti says

    In XS++’ folder there should be a Backup directory. If it doesn’t create it, it may be some Windows restricted account or so.

  38. Anish says

  41. Akshay says

    massmurda…
    i don’t know. it can’t be gdfs.
    may be hardware defect.
    may be display problem, or dead EROM.

    you have not touched your gdfs. and your gdfs is all safe.

  42. tony says

    aaarghhh please help me, my girlfriend wanted me to unlock her k810 and i followed the instructions but the gdfs hasnt been saved anywhere, i now have a bricked k810 and an angry girlfriend can you please help, something about hacking a gdfs to work on another phone or something.

  43. Akshay says

    dude tony
    no need of gdfs backup
    but don’t write gdfs now.

    well all you need to do is REFLASH MAIN+FS+CDA using XS++

    http://www.akshayy.com/sonyericsson/tutorials/flash-firmwaredebrand-with-xs/

    hv fun.

    then unlock again.. properly.

  44. Peti says

    Sounds like bad patching, reflashing main should be enough.

  45. Alvin says

    Hey Akshay,

    I got a replacement W580i! Except this one is CID53. Is there any way to backup the GDFS on CID53 devices?

    Thanks!

    i’ll be waiting!!! (just to make sure: [email protected])

  81. hotman says

    could you make an avertisment on the site when a free program for gdfs backup it’s released?

  82. Peti says

    @jordy: isn’t the phone CID 53 by any chance?
    @cheryl: XS++ can’t open SeTool2Lt backups? I guess that’s correct. REST file? What for? It is to restore the firmware. Can you reflash main and fs?
    @hotman: like SeTool2Lite… for CID lower that 53.

    Can SeTool2 Lite identify it? Try flashing with JDFlasher.

  86. Jordy says

    hi akshayy or peti!!!
    i just know that my phone is CID53, and its region is APAC (or chinese firmware) can you tell me any programs that support CID53 (for gdfs backup, fsx, and patcing)? and where can i get any patch for chinese (APAC) firmware (especially megabass patch)??? i heard that xs++ that supports CID53 is under development. is that true? or is it done yet?
    can i update my phone now by using SEUS (because my phone is already CID53)???
    great JOB!!!!!!!!!

  87. Peti says

    No gdfs backup and patching, but you can access its filesystem with JDFlasher.
    XS++ 3.2 will support CID53, at least that’s what they say. :D
    You can use SEUS, but what for?

  88. dj516nadz says

    ive previously flashed it with setool and xs++ but i can not flash again after gdfs backup

  89. dj516nadz says

    recovery files needed

  90. Peti says

    What recovery? Is the red light blinking?

  91. dj516nadz says

    k810 was turning on fine it was the flashin witch was the problem, all that was sorted now it wont let me add vpk files to the fone, its turns on the fone in to file transfer mode

  92. dj516nadz says

    no worries all sorted!!!!

  93. jordy says

    is there any risk of modding the file system with JDflasher without backing up the gdfs??? oh yeah, what acoustic files do you think can force bass out of my k800i? is xaero_ma loud will do it? if not, whats the best (you said no patching for CID53, so i will need the acoustic that give me bass just like megabass)???

  94. Peti says

    It has no real risk as far as I know. Any DB2020 ZAPF acoustics will do… I’d try W880 originals first.
    You guys don’t really get what megabass is. It is a preset for the equalizer, with the patch, you just get a different preset, which you could easily set yourself.

  95. Jordy says

    Oh, just one more question, when XS++ 3.2 CID53 is done, can i backup my gdfs and do patching with it?
    btw, THANKS PETI!!! i hope you can help me sometimes when i get more trouble!!!!

  96. Peti says

    I don’t know, I guess GDFS backup will be ok, but I doubt patching will be supported.

  97. gautam says

    hey can i apply flash themes,menus & walkman skins without doing GDFS back up?is it okay?

  98. Peti says

    Yes, it is.

  99. Hassan says

    hey
    have a W580i nt turning on did have a flashing red light on the side but thts also gone.
    i dnt no if it is cid52 or 53
    i tried to make a backup of gdfs using xs++ but it failed.
    XS++ now having trouble recognising phone sumtimes works sumtimes doesnt
    battery is full
    mail me with an answer [email protected]
    thanks
    ps my friends only have a day to do it lol

  100. Peti says

    When it connects to XS++, check the log… EROM CID?
    If it is 52, then there is hope, if not, it is gone (needs service center to fix it, pro tools).
    If it is CID52, you can use SeTool 2 Lite to fix its EROM, with “Unlock/Repair”, connecting with 2+5.

  102. Hassan says

    ok now for my phone got a w800i tht has firmware thts gone crazy turns the phone off sometimes and i cnt install any applications or games
    also camera is dodgy as well
    id like to customise it and get rid of the old vodafone icons and menus help on this pls

  103. Peti says

    You can try reflashing main and fs in both cases.

  104. Hassan says

    hw risky is it?
    and windows didnt ask me for a driver it used sonys usb driver

  105. Hassan says

    were do i get custompacks frm fr W800i its unlocked
    W800_R1AA008_FS_EMEA_2_RED36.fbn
    thts the fs im about to use will it work? and will my phone still be unlocked?

  106. Hassan says

    DAMN GETTING A CONFIGURATION ERROR WHAT DO I DO??

  107. Peti says

    Not too risky, many people did it.
    If you have SEUS installed, it won’t ask for drivers.
    You get config error when you don’t have custompack Any DB2010 emea2 custpack will do.

  108. Hassan says

    its ok its alive own custpack wudnt work for some reason so i used the ones in xs++
    nw u gt any ideas of the sorts of things i can do to pimp my phone

  109. Hassan says

    hey trying to mod my menu and walkman skin cant find hw to do it lked thru the customise phone section but i dnt understand hw to do it with w800i
    pls help

  110. Peti says

    That tutorial is written for newer, DB2020 phones, no DB2010.
    You can install new drivers and pimp menu and layout.

  111. Hassan says

    explain hw i do menu and layout and can i change my walkman skin?

  112. nghdoa says

    is there way to backup gdfs cid 53 ??? Tnaks.

  113. Peti says

    @Hassan: why not use search. It is possible to change walkman skin by DB2010 SYSGFX.
    @nghdoa: there is not.

  114. badtime says

    ok i deleted my gfs by mistake can i back it up again or will that kill the phone ?

  115. Peti says

    It shouldn’t kill the phone. I took backup 3 times, if I remember correctly, still working fine.

  116. Romaan says

    Have you got xs++ that supports CID53 yet?

  117. Peti says

    It isn’t released yet.

  118. Romaan says

    How long about’s do you think it will take to get relesed?

  119. Peti says

    I think nobody knows, but I’d say it will be a Christmas gift maybe. :D

  120. bob says

    haves an xs++ been made so it supports CID53 yet?

  121. Peti says

    We would have announced that… not yet. ;)

  122. bob says

    about how long do you thing it will take to get relesed

  123. Yogesh says

    hey bob u can use jdflasher for modding. Ya gdfs solution is not realeased yet. The xs version for cid53 is realesed but it is in beta mode, so it might brick ur phone. wait for 1 month. it will definietly be realesed.

  124. Peti says

    I wouldn’t be so sure. Maybe.

  125. bob says

    okay thaks guys

  126. bob says

    Hows it goin with xs++ CID53 mode cause jdflasher didn’t work

  127. Peti says

    XS++ is discontinued. There will be a new PhoneXS, nobody knows how soon. Download JDFlasher from somewhere else and use it.

  128. bob says

    k thx

  129. sahdev says

    i am not able to download the software XS++ it says error cannot open phone communication port.PLS HELP ME

  130. Romaan says

  131. Peti says

    @sahdev: install USB flash drivers.
    @Romaan: only PhoneXS 4.1 beta for linux. For gdfs backup. Though it isn’t working perfectly.

  132. Romaan says

    okay thx plz can you say wen the 1 tht works perfectly 4 cid53 on windows xp is out

  133. Peti says

    Not any time soon. As far as I’ve heard they can’t handle the flash driver for windows now. :D

  134. Romaan says

    okay :(

  135. Romaan says

    @ akshay

    any update on backing up GDFS of cid 53 db 2020 phones….im using k530i and i need to flash it to w660 i heard its possible just need ur guidance before doing it

  155. Akshay says

    not yet. XS++ 4.1 is relesed for Linux Like Ubuntu.
    Wait for Windows Release.
    it supports your phone CID53

  156. Romaan says

    CID53???????
    for windows xp out yet?/

  157. Romaan says

    Hi
    is xs++ out on xp
    that supports CID53

  158. Wise One says

    Everyone asking for xs++ on XP should stop asking if its out yet. When it comes out it will be huge and you wont miss it on the internet. It only annoys everyone if you keep asking. Be patient and just let the developers do their job.

  159. Perrin says

    Good morning

    I wonder if you can help. I’m using XS++ to repair a broken M600i.
    All that the phone does when turning on is screen flashes white and keypad lights up, then nothing.
    I didn’t do anything to cause this – the phone started freezing, giving errors, rebooting etc, then ended up dying completely.
    I don’t have a backup GDFS file and can’t get one because XS++ freezes at this point (log at the end of message).
    Is there anything I can do to fix this or is it only possible to send to SE for repair?

    Thank you so much for your time

  184. .di says

    I get that I need to backup GDFS.. but the think is that I have 2 W810i.. one that is my main.. the other is my ginny pig.. if I backup my ginny pich phone.. and then backup my main.. will XS++ overwrite the first file..? can i backup the GDFS file by .RAR it and name it like Ginny and Main..? and if I need to restore.. just .UNRAR it back to the backup folder..?

  185. bhuvan says

    @.di
    first of ll…ur fone’s gdfs is unique…neva write any others gdfs…evn the same model’s…
    so….do one thing…save both gdfs in two different folders….with two different names!

  186. .di says

    hi bhuvan.. I know that gdfs is unique.. but on the gdfs backup tutorial Peti make.. I couldn’t see that you can specified the name and folder where you want to put the backup file..

  187. bhuvan says

    @.d
    u mean….where it is generated???
    look in restoring gdfs guide..

    use jdflasher

  228. dave.birch says

    I used jdflasher and flashed the main,FS and custom pack. However the phone starts and says “insert correct sim” using the service menu key combination the phone is now networked locked again. I have tried to use anycid to unlock the network but i have two problems.

    1. The mkrest2.exe program will not generate a rest file when i drop the k770_R8BC004_MAIN firmware onto the exe program.

    2. I have therefore downloaded a R8BC004_1201-7587_GENERIC_VI.rest file.
    I can use the jdflasher until it reaches the part where you have to start the phone and use the executer program. At this point because the phone is now network locked and I do NOT have a 3 network sim I can not get into the phone.
    Any suggestions?

  229. bhuvan says

    dave.birch
    damn!
    i guess ur phone is cid:53??
    if yea…then no way!!
    cuz u need to go through phone system to do stuff…
    u dont have correct sim???
    we need it only for this operation

    Hi Bhuvan
    The red light on my k610i is blinking, tried to repair EROM, MAIN and FS but still nothing, I get the log above:
    CSloader refused to start GDFS services,error is:29
    failed, that is fatal
    Do you think my GDFS is corrupt?
    Do you know how i can fix this?
    Thanks

  233. Andy says

    By the way I just happen to have a backup GDFS from a friend’s k610i if it helps?
    Appreciate any help, thanks

  234. bhuvan says

    Andy
    is red light still blinking???
    and no!!!gdfs is unique to each phone!

  235. Andy says

    No I fixed it.
    It was the EROM, for some reason Setool wouldn’t fix it giving the log above, so I downloaded Kulankendi client and updated the EROM using 2+5.
    Thanks

    Hi

    I’m trying to unlock a k610 using the tutorial “unlock db2020 SE phones”.
    I tried like 3 times, following step by step, although it seems like everything worked it shows “no netw coverage”
    The thing is I do everything exactly as it shows on the tutorial.
    Do you know what could be wrong or what else I could try to fix this?

    nd is threre any other way/software to use to backup my GDFS . .

    Because i need Debrand my fone,

    Thanks, pls your reply is very important.!

  241. bhuvan says

    hayznet
    because ur phone is db3150
    xs++ do nt supports db3150 phones
    and till date no gdfs related problems are reported in a2 phones
    so just take backup via backup script and play!
    even if later u want branded state back…this backup will help u!

  242. napstar says

    bhuvan,
    what causes GDFS to get corrupt ???
    i learnt that from d tutorials that SEtool & XS++ do not support CID53 fones…
    so JDflasher is the only option…so my query is that hw do we backup GDFS using JDflasher?? is it possible or not? or is there any other way of backing up GDFS??

  243. napstar says

    hey akshay/bhuvan/peti..
    what if i use JDflasher to flash main,FS….wud it cause my GDFS to get corrupt??
    can i do all this witout a backup of my GDFS….also i cannot create a backup of GDFS as i am using w580i CID53 (which aint supported by SEtool or XS++) please help…

  244. bhuvan says

    napstar
    exactly there is no clue
    but by patching corrupt ones again n again…but not doing stuff the way it is done..it may get corrupt
    no way backing it up in cid:53 phones
    which phone u have?

  245. bhuvan says

    napstar
    dude dont be so afraid…even i own cid:53 w580…never had gdfs related problem…its very rarely caused
    ya…go ahead n flash

  246. napstar says

    thanks a lot bhuvan…bt,i read in d tutorials that if ur GDFS gets screwed up then ur fone’s equivalent to dead weight…& plus as every fone has a unique GDFS, i wanted to create a backup somehow :P
    but nw i noe that i cant make a backup for CID53 fones…i hope that d newer versions of SEtool & XS support this!!! thanks anyway!!
    cheers!

    4. Does it improve sound loudness & quality

    Please reply every question.

    regards
    Karan

  253. bhuvan says

    Karan
    1 no way of backing up cid53 phones’ gdfs
    2 look in jdflahser[flashing]guide
    just flash ur phone using w610 fs,main,cda
    3 nope..it wont
    check this
    W610_R6BC002_MAIN_GENERIC_NA_RED52
    it must be 53
    4 obviously..but for that u can also change or upgrade to better acoustics
    mainly ull get support of flash files,ull gt walkman
    ]

  254. KARAN says

    i also tried to write gdfs by xs++ but i dont know wat is a gdfs script though i hav gdfs bin file……………

  282. Bala says

    How to find if GDFS is good or not ? My W580i was dead and I used SE lite to flash it(but did not help me) , When I gave the mobile for service; they said the GDFS is corrupted, not sure if that was true.
    Now after flashing, I still used to see red light blinking 5 times(I have full battry charged) Even when I connect to charger the red light blinks. Is this a symptoms of GDFS corruption? If so what is the remedy. Please advice.

    post the log here
    probably its because of cid53

    look at newest guides, ull find it there

  288. LatinKnight says

    I have the sony w810i. i have the db2010. i installed usb flash drivers (golden gate wateva) and the xs ++ program and se lite program. I have windows 7 on my laptop. when I load the xs ++ program and press c i get the Error: Cannot open phone communication port
    Disconnected… Unplug the phone
    the se lite program hangs but doesn’t find the phone.
    Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  289. bhuvan says

    LatinKnight
    means, usb connection could not be created!
    clean the port, this is usual problem, twist the port a bit!

  290. LatinKnight says

    @Bhuvan. I cleaned the usb ports but it still says the same error. I also cleaned the phone port and the wire connecting it to the laptop. Still not working :-( What is twisting the port?

  291. bhuvan says

    LatinKnight
    twisting the port is like sometimes u must be having troubles in ur connecting ur handsfree, then u twist the plug, tilt it and plug, thats it!
    and this error means this only! phone is not able to establish connection with pc!
    it should work, if nothing works then try a new cable

  292. LatinKnight says

    thanksfor your help. My laptop is windows 7 and my home computer has vista. So I decided to give it a shot and do it on the home computer and it worked. It just seems this program and drivers are not for windows 7. So thanks for your time I was able to get in. :-)

  293. bhuvan says

    LatinKnight
    allright thats great!!! n no, these are totally compatible with win 7 x86 and x64 too!!! i use x64 win 7 ,tested on each!!! sometimes win brings up such situation!! i had too, had to reinstall win 7! anyways good to hear u had it sorted out!

  294. Nana says

    Hello friends.

    Thank you for the great site!

    Please help me…. As my PC SUITE couldn’t recognize my P1, I went to the SE site to update it. After i have finished updating my P1, phone wont turn on…!

    I have followed the instructions here:

    I want to make a copy of the gdfs (before I could Flash) but the process fails.

    This is the script after xs++ said “ready for operation”

    I am completely new to flashing and my mother would say I need to stop breakin stuff… :? (I’ve always been a diy kind of person)

    However, this time she might just be right.
    If it’s ok, let me go ahead and post what brings me here:

    I’m workin on a Ubuntu machine, was finally able to get xs 4.1 (crossfire) runnin on it, and then the fun started.
    I was unable to back up my w580i’s gdfs. It simply wouldn’t give me the option.
    so I flashed anyways (not the best idea I ever had I believe)
    I have the cust pack for my region, I tried to create a folder inside of “cust” as well as the “own_custpack” folder way but xs won’t recognize the pack!
    Right now I have new firmware on my phone and no way to use it.

    Please guide me through… (and plese remember I’m in linux)

    Thanks in advance for the Help

    Exeatly!

    Linux is not supported by SE official tools by design, so it is clear that 3rd party tools that are unofficial will not most likely be sup[ported either.

    Though, if you are running XS 4.1 though Wine, then STOP. You are damned lucky that you have successfully flashed MAIN and FS to the phone …

    Wine is not ready and fully capable of any such flashing capabilities due various reasons.

    Also – remember that info here is provided on as-is basis. You try -> you handle the risk -> you and only you are responsible of result – wanted or unwanted! ;)
