Elfpack/Elves

ELVES are really amazing !! They are sort of System Programs, using them you can change the behavior of your phone, add new features. Elves are Written in C Programming language, and they are directly executed by the phone’s ARM Processor. They have extension .elf ! Like how an .exe can be executed on Windows, an .elf can be executed in the phone if Elfpack is installed. These programs are known as ELVES. To use ELVES first you need to Install the ELFPACK for your phone (type and firmware version must be all right) !

Here is a short guide to use ELVES. ELVES can pimp your phone to max.

An ELFPACK has 3 files:

  1. ELFPACK Patch (.vkp)
  2. Library Patch (.lib.vkp)
  3. DYN_CONST.BIN file

To start off, Create the following folders for db2020 and w810,z550
In phone
Other/Zbin
Other/ini
Other/Zbin/Config

In M2 Card (yes, it has to be the memory stick, if you don’t have any, you can’t use the daemon function)
Other/Zbin/Daemons

Copy DYN_CONST.bin file to Other/Zbin/Config

Note: If your phone is k750 or w800 or w700 then create Daemons in Other/Daemons, do the same if elves you placed in ZBin/Daemons do not start with the phone.

Then apply the following Elfpack_patch and The Library Patch.
For example consider w610:
First apply ElfPack_w610_Rxx002.vkp patch
Then apply w610_r6bc002.lib.vkp patch

Place a few ELVES in Phone/Other/ZBIN. Open this folder with the phone’s file manager and Select Start.
ELVES placed in Daemons in M2 Card Start Automatically with phone.
If an ELF has INI file with it, place it in INI Folder. And if a ELF comes with config stuff then place it in there.

Some phones don’t have DYN CONST, For such phones many elves won’t work. DYN_CONST for many phone is underdevelopment.
ELFPACK depends on firmware, but Most ELVES are firmware independent.
