Warning/Sticky Message(SMS) Tutorial

This is just a fun trick, a warm up before we start the 2009 modding session with CID53 and A2/db3150 patching and much more 😉 !

The End Result will be a message entry in your Inbox and Sent Messages.  The special thing about this message is that, it will be forever on the top in the Inbox and Sent Messages. If you receive any new messages, they will always be pushed below the first message. So the idea is to stick a warning message on top of your Inbox and Sent Messages section. This will resemble just  like those Stickies messages in forums/boards !!

Restore Sony Ericsson WAP, MMS, 3G Settings.

We have come to know that many people are having problems configuring their phones after de-branding or after flashing it. Also there is a general mis-conception that after flashing you won’t be able to access 3G, WAP, Internet through your phone. That’s Wrong. Usually after de-branding your phone you lose all the WAP, Internet, MMS settings from the phone. And you won’t be able to send MMS or browse Internet.

For MMS and WAP to function properly, you should first create Data Accounts in Phone Settings and Then create  Internet Profile and MMS profiles which make use of the Data Account. For manually creating these accounts and profiles you will need a lot of technical information from your CellPhone Service Provider. You will need to know the APN, Proxy Address if any, Username and password settings. Hence the idea of manually setting up is not recommended, unless you have spare time to figure out things.

Using JDFlasher with DB2010 phones

Tutorial/guide for Db2010. DB2010 phones are K750, D750, W800, W300, Z530, etc. Use DBCIDExplorer to know what your phone is.

We always focused on DB2020 platform as our phones (mine and Akshay’s are [email protected] models). We talked about the Quick-Access thing, without mentioning the history of patching.

Now it is clear that using JDFlasher is better than using SeTool2Lite, because it is faster and you can apply several patches with it without disconnecting the phone. Continued…

Verifying Integrity of Firmwares. Especially CID53

Many CID53 Firmwares don’t work properly and have bad headers. You can’t flash such a firmware into your phone.

There may be many problems in a firmware. And recently many CID53 when used with jdflasher output the following error or something similar.

PutFiles<putfile<putfile_flash<flashbabe<flashbabe<header<send header error 15>>>>>

Hence its better to check the firmware before you flash it.
You can check it using the program babeck. Its basically babe-check. babe is SE standard firmware header.
Download babeck. Babeck can be used to check any sony ericsson firmware.

Instructions on how to use babeck.exe.

Video Encoding

This is not really a flashing subject, though many people would like to know how to do it. So convert your SE phone to a media center where you can watch movies!! Or at least watch video clips.

The application I suggest using has the slogan “does for FREE what other encoders CAN’T do for money”. It’s worth a try.

It is SUPER © Simplified Universal Player Encoder & Renderer, the best you can find. A very nice application, with very frequent updates. That is the main reason why I’m not uploading it to the download site.

So you have to get it from their own site, which is pretty hard to do, the first part of this tutorial will be about obtaining the newest SUPER. Continued…
