Creating SysGfx : Tutorial Version 2.0

SE Image Tool for db2020 phones has now greatly improved and now making sysgfx patches is really very easy ! They by applying Sysgfx patches with JDFlasher or SeTool 2 lite you can easily replace the default pictures in the phone.

As example here are screenshots of my phone, check out the new battery, signal and the radio in the following screenshots of my k550@w610

Download SE ImageTool (mirror download), Also do visit its official website for updates and newer versions !
Download your phone’s main firmware from topse russia or 4shared search also see download page for links
Download Babe2raw.

SE Image Tools supports both MBN and RAW files, but its better to convert MBN to RAW using babe2raw. To convert just drag and drop the Main firmware MBN file on Babe2raw.exe and the output will be the raw file. Opening the main firmware .mbn file will also work but will take a few extra seconds to load. πŸ˜‰

Here is a screenshot of SE Image Tool in Action.

Using the buttons at top you can replace images that you want. And SE Image Tool shows images replaced along with size of bytes left and size taken by replaced images in the left window. It has search feature that you can use to easily find images. Also you can check the options to show the names of the Images which makes searching easier.

If your new images are greater then the images in phone raw then you can deleted un necessary images from the RAW that are not used. you will find many weired images that you have never seen in your phone. So if you new images need more space, create space by deleted not wanted pictures. When you are finally done Just Click Make VKP button to get the vkp patch. Apply the patch using JDFlasher.

To apply SysGfx patches use JDFlahser, because its faster compared to SeTool 2 lite.

    yes .. you got your answer from the creator himself
    you can delete weired images
    most of them are used…. but not all

  23. Peti says

    That is insane, why are unused pictures? They cause incompatibility with patches…. :S

  28. limons says

    Hi Akshay Can u give u r main and fs. As example here are screenshots of ur phone, the new battery, signal and the radio in the following screenshots of your k550@w610. Or how can i get it thanks.

  29. Peti says

    @abhay & Yans: “If your new images are greater then the images in phone raw then you can deleted un necessary images from the RAW that are not used. you will find many weired images that you have never seen in your phone. So if you new images need more space, create space by deleted not wanted pictures.” <- in the tutorial, read carefully. I don't have yahoo ID, I don't like it. Instead use forum. @limons: As far as I know we both use W610_R6BC002_MAIN_GENERIC and W610_R6BC002_FS_CENT_EUROPE. (red 52) Not all screenshots were taken on his phone. :$

  30. limons says

    Hey i have tried many times. First of all
    Db2020 SE Image Tool i have delete some icons then put some icons and then make .vkp. But when write the .vkp patch in setool it says error memorybloc …..Help

  31. limons says

    can u have any video tutorial????

  32. Peti says

    I don’t have such a thing now, but good idea, I’ll consider. πŸ˜€
    It means that you probably used a bad firware to work with. You must use the same fw on your phone and in ImgTool. If you are certain you did, then you applied some gfx patches already. πŸ˜‰

  33. limons says

    Hey Peti ,Can u Give me the smiley battery, signal and the radio gfx(png) or vkp patch(R6BC002) in the following screenshots of your k550@w610. Or how can i get it thanks.

  56. Tsiap says

    When I try to replace for example the emty battery icon with another png i have,it says that theree is not enough space,and that I can only upload pngs with the same size as the original,in this case 72 bytes.I’ve read somewhere that I can delete icons in order to earn more free space,but when I press the delete icon,it says deleted but when I try to replace the png,it says the same again…

  57. bhuvan says

    on which firmware u are using it?
    try deleting heavy images
    like for my w595 firmware i always delete ea88
    but this one’s name must be different in case of ur firmware

  58. Tsiap says

    I’m using the K810 R8BA024 firmware.When I press the “delete” icon,it says “deleted” but in the right screen.It somethong like this

    Empty battery original icon –arrow—> Big box which says “deleted”

  59. bhuvan says

    thats the way it should go
    its showing the deleted image
    a preview can be much better

  60. Chapunq says

    I got this vkp file “walkman.gfx.w850” i’m so confused about the tutorial that you’ve made with tutorial that i’ve red on the other site, should i just apply the vkp file or i have to create gfx.ini like the other site said, please answer, i wouldn’t apply it till i’m sure what to do

  61. bhuvan says

    if .vkp supports ur phone firmware then apply it!

  62. Chapunq says

    Yes it’s for my phone with the same firmware, thank you bhuvan, I got lot of knowledge from here, keep it on

    theres in easier way to all of these
    download codeclaw ic manager
    read the file hb1_08…ic from a2uploader at tpa/preset/system/icons
    then open codeclaw ic manager and open the file .ic
    then you can edit all of these images
