    hi to all,
    I am just wondering if there is a way to read the mototrbo DP4800 flash memory or not?

    your cooperation will be highly appreciated.

    What possible activity could you have in mind for your motivation in doing this?

    Personally, I don’t really care what you do in the privacy of your own home. You could masturbate to dogs wearing miniskirts, for all I care. But when you attempt to involve this website in an activity which will no doubt draw unnecessary attention from government and Motorola officials, it’s probably not the right place to ask.

    Been there.

    I have heard that a properly licensed copy of MotoTRBO CPS, with the proper programming cable is the best way to interface and communication with the EEPROM/Flash memory in those radios

    If you want a complete read of the DP4800 memory chip you have a few choices.

    Remove the DP4800 IC with a hot air station and stick it in the proper adapter and read it. Re-ball the IC or burn a new memory IC and using a hot air station, solder it back in place.

    Research how to put the radio into a DFU mode, and JTAG the radio and read the memory IC without having to remove it. You’d need to know it’s memory address in order to do this however.

    If you want a partial read...
    Use WireShark and read the radio using CPS and you’d get the codeplug data, but not a complete start to finish read of the entire memory contents, just the codeplug data.

    I have already removed the IC but could not get the proper socket for reading it.And thank you so much for your reply Mr.escortX50.

    for those who replied with bad words I will say thank you too. I asked for help in this field not to play with others, but because I work at a company which has a radio network with more than 10000 DP,DM, and DR pics and I am the one who is responsible for programming and fixing them.

    As a primary customer that has a direct support contract with Motorola, you are bound by the “Thou shalt not reverse engineer, decompile or otherwise modify this software/firmware clause.”

    We are truly only looking out for your (and the websites) best interests when we say “don’t go there”.

    As aftermarket or enthusiast users of this gear, you are a granted a tiny little bit more leeway as there is no money involved, but really, if you have 10,000 radios in your fleet, you already have a decent support contract for subscriber units, network and infrastructure, so why not just send the broken units back under that contract for flat rate repair?

    Far more time and cost effective than screwing with surface mount rework, right?

    It’s not “bad words“ when someone is telling you the truth. If you want to go through what I went through with those fuckheads in Chicago, be my guest.

    Words cannot describe what needs to happen to those people.

    so why not just send the broken units back under that contract for flat rate repair?

    that does not mean not to learn more and get more experience.
    thanks a lot.
