Motorola Codeplug wanted

Post by AxelBelucci »

Hello,

I need a blank codeplug for Motorola DP4400 UHF, can any one me help to find this codeplug?


Thank you

If you have the MotoTRBO CPS there are sample codeplugs in one of the program folders.

Hello,

I have two different CPS, but in this two I haven't an DP4400 codeplug.
Can't you me send an codeplug?

Thank you

By far the best way to modify a Motorola DP(anything) radio is to read in the radio. If that's not possible, and the only viable reason is that it's password protected, the other way is to use a default code plug to overwrite the existing codeplug inside the radio.

Presuming you have MOTOTRBO software, the sample (default) code plugs are in this folder:

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files (x86)\Motorola\MOTOTRBO CPS\samples

The only way this is possible is that you have the non-EMEA version of MOTOTRBO. In which case, even with a DP4400 code plug, you would still not be able to modify a DP4400.

Here's an explanation...

MOTOTRBO radios and software are region specific. If you look on the back of any Motorola Solutions radio, you will find a number that looks something like this "MDH56RDC9JA1AN". This model number is for a EMEA UHF DP4400 (non-E) version. The first two letters (MD) represent EMEA region, AA would be USA/North America. There are more regions including South America, Australia/New Zealand, China etc.

In EMEA and USA, there is a distinct difference between the radios - and they're called different things. For example, there is no DP4400 in the USA but an identical radio called XPR7350. So this makes a good distinction. But nevertheless, you need MOTOTRBO USA / North America to program an XPR7350 - and it will not program a EMEA model.

In Australia / New Zealand region, the DP4400 whilst appears to be the same radio as the EMEA DP4400 is, in fact, a different region radio. You'll need MOTOTRBO version for Australia to program this radio.

Yes, very confusing...

Hello,

Thank you for the useful information.

Can you tell me the difference between the model H56RDC9JA1AN and the H56JDC9JA1AN, since normally the "JDC" model is common?

Sure. Very simply...

[MD]H56RDC9JA1AN = DP4400 UHF
[MD]H56JDC9JA1AN = DP4400 VHF

I recently got the Motorola MOTOTRBO CPS 2.0 UK & Europe Programming Software (GMVN6241A)

but there are next to no sample there for me.

there is only

DM4601e
DP1400
SLR8000
XiRM8660i
XiRP3688
DEP450
DGM8500e
XPR5550e
CP200d

how can i get sample code plugs for the DP4400... i don't currently have the radio at the moment due to current climate shipping is taking longer than expected.

Thanks.

My dp4400e has arrived but when I connect it to my pc it asks for a password before i do anything the seller says they don't know the password so I can program it... is there any ways in witch I can "factory reset" it so to say or a way to get round it in the CPS.

Thanks.

If I remember correctly (it's been a few years since someone approached me with the same issue), you would need to clone a blank code plug into the radio. You may need to get a newer version of the CPS as there is a DM4401e sample code plug which may wite into your radio.

As far as im aware I have the latest one from radiotronics.
The only issue is that I only have a UHF sample code plug when the radio i have is on VHF... but from other posts I've seen some have issues with that.

Has anyone got a copy of a VHF codeplug they could send me for the DP4400E without a password.

Thanks

Just keep in mind, before you desperately seek a gifted code plug, that over and above regional etc restrictions (not sure about Motorola specific CPS, but in DMR - cps software typically chokes on code plugs not designed for the actual mode the transceiver is set to operate in, operational limits vs open transit mode).

The probably easier method to avoid code plug mode limitations or even some regional locked opening/usage of foreign compatible code plug saves if to ask whoever donates to send you their CVS export set and use the CVS import (if it exists) in the Motorola cps.

Because you're importing plain text, rather than compressed and/or encoded binaries, there is virtually nil chance any of the CVS files will carry an region lock/mode lock tied data in content.

And CVS is far easier to use with a spreadsheet to bulk add data to in bulk than in-CPS editing allows for.

But again, it's all subject to the previously posted notes. Also, where a radio has an unknown password or pass code that not being able to supply to the CPS kills reprogramming attempts, you're talking about a reflash restoration of radio's settings store if there's no user accessible multiple key press on power up style hard reset.

It's possible with a suitable MCU/SoC programmer lead, to clone the contents of the settings store, since most radios these days use an MCU or Soc ’processor‘ or programmable at some stage control logic architecture. You'd be needing identify the programming or diagnostic connection on the PCB for that - but note, unauthorized and uncertified breaking into the black box status of your radio will (unless recertified appropriately) bust it's TA compliancy certification out of the field and lost to the four winds and so rendering the radio noncompliance as not a valid equipment for the otherwise licensed use.

So beware of desperate measures. Tampering with an uploadable copy of a code plug isn't a TA issue, but the act of bypassing the normal programming to hack radio-stored code plug data or settings probably has it's own set of issues anyway over validity of doing.
