MEM_MAP Blank is a message if the memory addresses for the individual CG's, which are stored in CG31, do not match the existing ones. This sometimes happens if these memory addresses are corrupted.
Flashing a bootloader will not change the MEM_MAP messages. You have to flash a firmware. Usually this does not work. RSD will suddenly stop at some point, could be at 37%, 57%, 74% or any other precentage. This will happen every time you flash any firmware.
The solution that worked for me is:
Take note at what CG RSD stops flashing, lets say it stops at 54% and that is CG42. So if you then create 3 flash files, the first containig all CG's upto and including CG41, the second one only CG42 and the third one all CG's from CG43 to the end (CG52).
You will find that the first and third flash file flash without a problem, but the second one will stop again. Now take the battery and sim card out for at least one day. After one day add the sim card, the battery and start your V8 in bootloader - press and hold * and # key while pressing power on button. Now in bootloader you can flash the second flash file. In most cases it will flash perfect. Very rarely you have to try this a few times. You only have one try to make it work, meaning if after the day of discharging the second flash file still fails, it will always fail, so take battery and sim card out again and maybe wait 2 days.
I had cases like that, but so far I always got them back into fully working condition.

Use SBF Recalc to split the firmware you want.
Then copy all the CG you need for each "part" flash into a new folder, now copy the *hmg and *RAMDLD.smg file into each of those folders.
Use SBF Recalc to create new *.sbf flash file and flash.
