Yes,you have to put the radio in bootstrap mode,before you can flash it!
If you havn´t done it,thats the problem.
The bootcontrol pin is only on the rear connector (not RJ45)!
Pin 18 must be grounded to put it in bootstrap mode.

Hi Andreas,

I'm using computer with WinXP/32bit, and until now I had no problems with programming radios. This is my first attempt to flash the radio. I have another computer with win98SE installed on it so I can try with that one also.

I did a little research and up on what I found, for bootstrapping you need to connect boot control pin on radio RJ45 connector (it is pin no 6, depends from which side you are counting), to GND and that's it. I did that but... radio doesn't bootstrap.

Just tell me if I'm wright with bootstrapping procedure.

Well, this morning I tried with Waris Lab upgade tool. It seams that I have a problem with bootstrapping GM340. "Radio not in bootstrap mode" is the message that I'm receiving. Again, there are some guides how to make a flash adapter and I connected an additional switch between pin 25 and GND, but the bootstrapping message is popping up every time.
Probably I need to do more research about that adapter and to build one.

I'll be back with new updates soon.

You should upgrade to the highest fw with the EU lab upgrade tool.Only try to write the codeplug,if you still have the error!
If the radio is ok after flashing the fw,read and save the tuning values and write down the temperature compensation data!
After this is done,you can update the codeplug with the labtool and write back the tuning values after the serieal number is set.
Check the temperature compensation data values after it!

Thank you BATMAN for your replay.

This is one step forward. There is a hope for my radio.
Until now I was working only with CPS, never with LAB Upgrade tools. I did a short research and overall oppinion is that it will help if you know how to use it. Otherwise, like someone said "Lab software in untrained hands is responsible for more worthless paperweight radios".
So BATMAN, could you be so kind to give me more info and "how to" guides about LAB software.
What about the alignment of the radio after re-flash? Radio needs to be realigned again?

My radio model no is MDM25KHC9AN1AE; Tanapa IMUD6013A; codeplug version is 03.05.00. I was able to find some Waris EU upgrade versions 03.07. Is that the appropriate version for me and is it so complicated to re-flash my radio?
Except RIB and computer, do I need some additional hardware?

I'm sorry if I'm braking some forum rules with all this questions. I would like to point that I'm not doing this to earn some money doing this. All my life I'm doing DIY staff and projects. I made my own RIB, cables and connectors for my radio's. Especially I like fixing old used radios.
That is why bringing to life this GM340 is one more challenge on my list that needs to be scratched.

One more time thank you for your help

The blink of the LED is a clue. It needs to be reflashed using the LAB Software. Motorola did release a one off "Patch" for sorting this out, but was only supplied to certain companies who used to supply data solutions to the taxi trade when it was realised the radio codeplug could be crashed.

Thank you both for your replays.

I have tried reading radio using an official motorola CPS but without success. The same thing is with attempt to program it with default codeplug. Message "not able to provide information from the radio about codeplug", or something similar appears.

Is there a procedure to "unstunned" it?

I need more info about your suggestion because until now bootstrapping and flashing were not my options and procedures I did with radios.

Somewhere on this forum, post from 2009, I found that someone suggested flashing with some "unofficial flash upgrade tool". What is the catch? What kind of program is that?

I made this post because I thought that flashing LEDs are common "error code" that points to a procedure or suggests specific defected part on the board that needs to be changed.

All suggestions are welcomed

Hi
Try to boostrap it and flash default CP/FW, you will loose alignement data, but worth a try.
