the links will appear here when they're up.

Sorry, the binaries had to be pulled, too much traffic.
Please use the torrent to download what you need.
(you can select only the needed files from the torrent)
Update: the upload is on an adsl line, so it'll take at least until tomorrow for all the files to be up. So, either leave the torrent open in hopes for it to download fast, or just try again tomorrow. Btw, if you already have the files, put them in the downloading directory and start the torrent again. Hopefully, it'll recognize them and help seed !!! thanks

Procedure to backup your firmware is yet unknown.
By flashing your phone you are losing your current firmware and everything stored in flash.
First, to flash your e680, install PST 7.11, and plug the phone in
using modem USB mode.
After that, either use PST directly (not recommended), or run the MultiFlashFlex.exe program located in your PST dir (C:\Program Files\Motorola\PST by default).
The phone should connect and be recognized.
After clicking "Start", do not touch anything and do not remove cable
There's a stage where the phone erases its flash. The program will look dead.
It is NOT. Wait until it finishes and do NOT disconnect the phone.
After the flash is finished, you can reboot your phone and enjoy the new firmware.
In case you still managed to break the flashing process, and got
all is not lost yet. If you didn't corrupt the bootloader (most
probably), you can do
the following to start the phone in flashing mode:
Hold the top-right and bottom-left SIDE buttons while switching the phone ON.
It should show a blue screen and load the bootloader.
If everything went fine, start the flashing program and try to reflash again.
If you still get problems, try flashing with another firmware file.
The firmware files (*.shx) contain header with some identifiers (if someone decodes them, please leave a message), and then binary files in Motorola's S-format.
S-format is an ascii-only format for binary files representation for firmware storage. It differs from intel hex, uu and base64.
Since the firmware file is solid, before decoding you should split
The boundaries for splits are S0 identifiers.
Each S0 string identifies a unique binary file.
The R51_a1p version contains, f.e.:
p.s. The S7.. strings can be deleted as they point to the execution address, which is worthless for us.
After splitting the shx file, you will get multiple s-format-encoded
Use a conversion utility to decode them, and to encode back later
One such utility is binex.
After conversion with binex of each file (binex /b file.s19), binex will create an WWXXYYZZ.BIN file, where WWXXYYZZ stand for the address that binary should've been written onto when flashing.
From in-system information, addresses/sizes are:
Execution address seems to be 0x11000000 (from S70511000000FA in shx
file) for what its worth.
After unpacking, you can mount each image and tinker with its contents.
It probably is possible to change the images and put them back into
firmware (after encoding back to s19).
It may even be risk-free, if the bootloader section is not touched. Apparently, the "/vobs/" is the cvs-like repository at Moto, they're creating images directly from the stable repository. Platform2000 is a generic GSM platform for Moto phones running linux. The bootloader is product-dependent and sits in gsm_bootloader.S and gsm_raflash.S and provides display support for flash mode.
