Tuning your phone’s calculator

I use calculators a lot, but I don’t always have one with me. Yet my phone is always in my pocket. I should use it, but the calculator on Sony Ericsson phones is rubbish, we all know that. But this problem can be fixed!

The first thing we need is the replacement, a new calculator, which is a java application:
JvoCalc.
We also need the original menu.ml file of the phone, you can get it following this tutorial, or using JDFlasher, also you can download it from the internet, or extract the FS (tpa/preset/system/menu). Menu.ml file is not the same on different phone types, so you must get it yourself.
You need XS++ (FSX), or Far Manager / JDFlasher to upload the new menu.ml file we are going to make.
Optionally, you should obtain a good text editor, with syntax-highlighting (xml), try this: Notepad++.

Our next step forward

Having had problems with eSnips and having seen the waiting time of dowload servers I made a decision. A decision to create a site from which you users could download all our content. And so I started working on it and then I had a new idea: you don’t understand something so you want to ask, and where you ask is a totally different tutorial’s comment section. I thought I should have done something to solve this problem, and so I did. I added a new functionality to the already working site, a forum. To use it you first have to register, but then you can ask anything you don’t understand there, instead of filling the K550-W610 tutorial with comments about K770 patches or so. Please register on our new site! Continued…

SE Theme Tools !

Flash Menus !

As you all know flash menus have two parts
