Ultimate Tutorial to Create Your Own Custom Firmware [CFW] (by LRajesh555)


Recommended Posts

Everyday atleast one member in this forum is asking about how to make his own CFW, how to add mods, how to add apps, themes and many more questions about modding and making a CFW. So I decided to compile a tutorial which will contain almost everything about firmware modding. This tutorial will help the newbies as well as the CFW makers( :P). Newbies, just cover this whole thread and soon you will come up with your own cfw. And CFW makers, just go through this thread before finalizing your CFW, you could have missed something out. Or I may have missed something so u can tell me the missing parts to be added. :)

Credits:

Before making the ultimate tutorial I just want to say that I may have combined many threads by many members of this forum to this thread. So credits to Die2mrw007, Nikship, Prayaas Aggarwal, shaswat, Xtreme.Infinity, Aryacooldude, RAZR, debsin, Shivam94, Pavan061994,Nihar, LRajesh555 and many more present in this forum.

And also credits goes to them who are totally responsible for the symbian modding. Without them symbian modding couldn't have reached to this stage. Some of the great modders are:

Il.socio: For rompatcher+, Navifirm, Nokia Cooker and many more firmware modding tools and mods.

CODeRUS: Father of symbian modding. Without him symbian modding scene could never be realized. 10202be9 file description. Installserver/S^3 rompatcher/and many more important mods which we use. He is still helping with Symbian^3 modding.

Doctorly: For the Core Editor. Without him we couldn't have created a CFW.

PNHT (Szakalit, Adonix & Steven25): Contributed hugely to the s60 modding scene. Ported C6 firmware to 5800 & other devices. Developed NFE to edit the rofs files and many more things.

newcooler: For the nokia firmware cleaner.

binh24: For the repartitioned C6/N97 Firmware files and many more mods.

And many other great modders like Die2mrw007, upakul, 008rohit, sklchan, liliatungary, Chrish marsh, Draculaboy, lamerfall, devilyazdan and many members from this forum, DM, PNHT etc.

Sorry if i forgot to mention some modders' names. I can't remind all of them this instant. I'll continue adding their names when come to my mind. :P

and finally to LRajesh555 (me) for writing this tutorial without losing patience. :D:P

Ok now we will need to know some terminologies.

FW: Firmware

OFW: Original Firmware

CFW: Customized/Cooked Firmware

MCU: Its the core part of the fw. Most of the stuffs are included in it if the fw files are not repartitioned. But most of the CFWs r repartitioned. Repartitioning gives us more free space to put our stuffs in the section we can modify more easily.

PPM: The rofs files. These can be modified without causing much damage to the phone.

APE: The UDA file of the fw. It is the C: drive (phone memory) of our phone. So it will be better to leave it untouched if u want to get more free space in your C: drive.

Cooking: Customizing.

Mods: Modifications. Any readymade file in the fw which is modified to bear much impact in the phone. For example a speed mod will increase the speed of the phone. Actually modders have already modified some files and provided them to us which are known as mods. We only need to add them to our rofs. Mods will replace the unmodified files & will tweak the performance in phone in a better way.

Firmware Tools :

Before going to create your CFW you need to have all these tools.

1. Navifirm: Needed to download the OFW

2. Nokia Cooker: To edit the fw files like core, rofs2, rofs3 etc.

3. Nokia Firmware Editor: Used to edit or customize rofs2.

4. Nokia FW Cleaner: Used to delete the built in apps in rofs2.

5. Sis Contents: To extract sis files.

6. RSCEditor: To edit resource (.rsc) files.

7. SISXplorer: SISXplorer allows you to Inspect and Extract all the files contained inside the 3rd Edition installation packages. Using SISXplorer you can extract all the images from 3rd Edition Themes, deeply Inspect the content of each file using the Integrated Hexadecimal Viewer. And Much More.

8. Petran GUI: Used to edit and compress .dll and .exe files so that we can get more free space in the rofs2 to put more stuffs.

9. MBM Converter

10. SVGB to SVG Converter

11. SVG to SVGT Converter

12. MIF maker: Amobile application used to convert .jpg, .jpeg, .png, .gif images to .mif

13. Mediabar Editor: Used to edit the mediabar.

14. Nokia qwerty keyboard editor

15. Hex Editor: used to edit binaries

16. Theme Icon Switcher: Used to switch the icons between two themes.

17. SIS Ware

18. ResEdit: Used to edit the resource (.rsc) files.

19. SymbianRSC: Used to edit the strings present in .rsc files.

20. JAF: The most important tool. This is needed to flash your phone. U may need to flash your phone minimum 100 times to test your CFW in every step.

You can also get all these tools from HERE. Thanks to rushi1607 for posting all the tools in one place :)

Some Basics You May Need To Keep In Your Mind:

You need to know some basics before going to make your CFW.

I have just quoted the post of Prayaas Aggarwal from HERE to save my time. Becoz many things are yet to write. 

Basics

First of all, modifying the Core file is extremely dangerous. The core undergoes a hash check which will fail if we modify it. Ofcourse there are new tools to modify core too, but I prefer modifying ROFS. Safest way. Now, ROFS is of two types. ROFS2 and ROFS3. The core file contains another type - the ROFS1. In some older phones, you might find ROFX too.

When we deal with CFWs, we mostly prefer repartitioned ones. The reason was explained above. In repartitioned CFWs, there exists no ROFS3. Instead, the ROFS3 is put into Core. To repartition, we needed to modify core. Then hash check would fail, so we added an unmodified ROFS3 which has a valid hash, into Core. The ROFS1 in the repartitioned files in in ROFS2 itself.

So, we'll we talking basically about editing ROFS2, and UDA.

Whatever we edit in the ROFS2 goes to drive Z: of your phone. This is a hidden drive that is Read-Only. You can't change it from the phone itself. To modify it, you have to modify the files in ROFS2 and then reflash your phone.

Changes in UDA go to C: (Phone Memory). Hard resetting might wipe away all your C: files. But, if you want that they shouldn't, add all the files you don't want to be wiped off to 100059c9/exludelist.txt in the UDA.

The ROFS2 of the OFW has a maximum size of ~ 33 MB. The repartitioned one has a maximum size (partition size of Z: ) of ~110 MB. But then, even it's contents are more. By default you have some 10 MB free on the repartitioned ROFS2. The size if exceeds the partition size, will brick your phone. Thus we have tools like Nokia Firmware Cleaner to remove off the junk.

All the files in the .C00 (core) are first flashed to Z: drive. Don’t try to edit it. You may end up bricking your phone. Then ROFS2 is also flashed to Z: drive but no files except for some bookmarks and some other txt files are overwritten. If anything is overwritten, it results in a brick. So, we do not add mods to Core so that our files do not clash. ROFS3 does the same but is not used in repartitioned files (including C6 and N97 ports). The reason has been explained above. The default theme in OFW is in ROFS3. Since, it has become a part of core, it can not be removed, though hidden.

I personally use Nokia Firmware Editor (NFE 0.3) for editing ROFS2. So I’ll be explaining how to use it in this tutorial.

Having a base for your CFW

A stable codebase is extremely important. So I recommend that you decide whether you want your CFW to be based on OFW, C6, or N97. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. The OFW has the best RAM management. C6 has widgetized homescreen with new features like smart dialer and many more. N97 has widgetized homescreen. Some say it's better than C6 in RAM management. Not my opinion, though.

If you want it to be based on C6 or N97 port, download your files from here first. If you want to base it on OFW, then download the OFW files from NaviFirm. At some places, repartitioned OFW files are also available. It's recommended to use those.

So better to take the repartitioned fw files as ur base fw for creating ur CFW.

U can get the repartitioned C6/N97 base ports from binh24's blog

Symbian S60v5 Directory Structure:

Data: Contains all applications data related files such as maps for GPS applications.

Images: When u edit any picture or take any picture using camera, the pictures will be saved to this directory and the sub-directories like backgrounds, camera, pictures, presence etc present in this directory. Files under the Camera sub-directory will be sorted in sub-directories acording to the date and time the pictures were taken.

Music: Just like the Image directory, this directory contains all the music related files.

Others: This directory contains mostly private data like contacts.

Private: This directory is the one for which we all came in for. This actually contains all the configuration files in XML and TXT formats (Although as INI formats) to control and change any preferance u'll ever need or think of.

Resource: This directory contains all the graphics related stuffs. Means it contain all the images/icons/rsc files that the phone theme consists of.If u ever want to add any theme or to change any graphics related issue, this is the place to look for.

Sys: This directory is also the most important one. This directory contains all the OS binaries. That means all executive (exe) & dll files are located under this directory. The sub-directories under the Sys directory are bin (which actually contains the binary OS files) and the Install ,Uninstall directories. The Install/Uninstall directories are like registry mechanism. The install and uninstall informations are in these directories respectively.

System: This directory contains the sub-directories like Apps, data, dmgr, temp. The Apps directory holds applications related data. The data directory contain OS related data such as BlueTooth/headset/speakers parameters. The dmgr stands for data manager which handle downloads. And the Temp sub-directory holds temporary OS files.

Videos: Contains user made camera videos.

U may be willing to add some apps into ur cfw to make them inbuilt so that they ll directly work from Z:\ .

And also u may be willing to remove the present themes from the fw and add ur desired theme into ur cfw and make ur desired theme as default.

But to add ur desired apps, themes or mods u may need to have more free space in the rofs2 so that u can add more apps, themes, mods or many more stuffs.

So at 1st we ll learn how to get more free space in the rofs2.

Here I m quoting a post from Die2mrw007 to make u know which files r unwanted and need to be removed from the rofs2 to get more free space so that u can integrate ur stuffs.

For CFW ROFS2 - Unwanted items

1. Search resource/apps/ for promo_ .

you will get 8 mif files all are useless. you can delete.

2.private folder 2000f8aa: 1.46 mb - you can delete

3.resource /skins: Use a light weight theme. you need simple theme for booting.

4.data/sounds/: it can be reduced by keeping sms ,email ,beep.rng ,nokia default .

5. 200159c0/install: remove accuweather , ndtv ,sinonews,apnews, book my show,reuters like these came from original c6.

6.200159c0/install: you can remove 27 files of 01 .

7.If you have deleted the unwanted applications first and added N8 or anna icons mif later check for deleted applications mif in resource/apps and remove.

8.sys/bin if you got vodbnolatin.dll which is for viet language of 2.498 mb can be removed.

U can delete some inbuilt apps (which u may not need) like Drawing, File browser, Quick Office, Adobe reader, Welcome, My Nokia,About, Phone Switch, Image Print, Help, Voice Commands, Active Notes, OVI Contacts, Ovi sync, Here and Now, SW Update,

WIFI\WLAN =For Those Who Dont Have WIFI in Their Phones,

Video Sharing,

Video Call = For Those Who Dont Have Front Camera in Their Phones,

Internet Phone, Chat, Search, Podcasting, Bounce, Boingo, Joiku Spot, Vlingo, QIK, Shazam

How To Delete Inbuilt Apps In rofs2 Using Nokia FW Cleaner:

1. Place ur Nokia FW cleaner files in one folder like below.

Posted Image

2. Open Nokia FW cleaner. A window will pop up which will ask to choose ur rofs2 file.

Posted Image

3. Select the path to the extracted rofs2 folder.

Posted Image

4. A window will appear in which u'll see some apps checked with tick marks. Those are the apps inbuilt in ur rofs2.

Posted Image

5. Now uncheck all and tick only them which u want to remove from ur rofs2.

Posted Image

6. Now Click on green plus (+) sign on the left. Ur apps to b removed will be selected. U can see the 'list ready' in the right column.

Posted Image

7. Now click the red cross (X) sign.

Posted Image

After a few second u ll get a confirm msg like 'Done'.

Posted Image

Ur apps are removed. Now u can repack ur rofs2 and flash ur phone with it to b sure that the apps r removed or not.

We can also backup/recover the apps in rofs2 using nokia FW cleaner.

Backup: Put checkmark in the desired apps and click back up.

Return: Put checkmark in the desired apps and click on return.

NOTE:

Nokia FW cleaner can't remove the 'HELP' completely from the rofs2.

So Drakulaboy has compiled a Help Item Remover tool using which we can remove the HELP application from the entire rofs2.

Posted Image

No need to unpack ur rofs2. Just select the packed rofs2 and click start.

How To Get Even More Free Space Using Petran GUI:

There is another way by which u can get even more free space in the rofs2. The way is by compressing the binary files i.e the executive (exe) and dll files present in the rofs2. A tool named Petran GUI (by newcooler) is used to compress the exe & dll files. By compressing these files we may get 15-20 mb more free space in the rofs2 so that we can put more stuff in our CFW.

To be confirmed, 1st check the properties of the folder rofs2\sys\bin (we r checking this because as from the 1st post we all know that all the binary files are present in sys\bin folder) and note down the size of this folder.

Posted Image

Now lets go ahead. See the steps below.

1. Open Petran GUI.

iLHs5zt.png

2. Click 'Open'. A window ll pop-up. Select all the files present in ur rofs2\sys\bin.

[img width=602 height=420] 3YlNZr.png

U'll see the files selected as in the below picture:

FBVbZO.png

3. Now click 'Options' and set the options as below and close the option window.

rO2TE6zaL.png

(U can also select 'bite pair' but 'deflate' compresses the files more)

4. Now click 'unpack'. The process of unpacking ll start. It'll take 1-2 minutes. And after 1 or 2 minute u'll see a confirmation msg window poping up.

KVsXqFY3zCmx.png

5. Now click 'Packed' and wait for 1-2 minutes. When u see the confirmation msg then u may close Petran GUI.

vgSmZ3Jzd.png

Done ...! :)

Now u can put more stuffs in ur rofs2 :)

U can check the bin folder again to be confirmed :)

In my case the size decreased from 63 mb to 53 mb. Wow 10 mb more free space ..!!  :yahoo:

[img width=319 height=420] cqfzGH.png

Warning: Compressing the executive files will cause in decrease of free ram by 20 mb. Deflate compression significantly impacts system performance and ram.  So it is best to stick with byte repair compression.

Now come to the topic i.e how to integrate ur apps into ur CFW so that they ll work directly from Z:\

How to Integrate Your Apps Into Your CFW Using SIS Content:

1. Open SIS Content (extsis.exe).

[img width=512 height=420] izCm86qW.png

2. Click on the 'Open' icon (the yellow folder icon).

LzHJcMq.png

3. A window ll appear. Just select the sis file of the application you want to integrate into ur CFW.

[img width=509 height=420] t0bjDFT3i.png

4. Click on the extract button (left to sign)

l8u5b6y.png

The contents from the sis package of the application are extracted now to a local folder named Sis contents as u see in the below picture

[img width=588 height=420] Dn584TC.png

5. Now copy the contents of these folders (Private, resource, sys) and paste in the respective directories in ur extracted rofs2 folder.

Ur application is integrated now. :)

NOTE

Actually its not as simple as adding apps into the cfw. Some applications may not work from Z:\ becoz they don't satisfy all the capabilities. U need to sign those aps with a 20 cap cert & key (which only nokia can provide :D ) to make them work from Z:\.

And some applications may give system error after flashing. just becoz they may have been referenced from C. We need change the reference to Z. So u need to open the registry files of english language(.rsc and .r01 files) and edit them and rename all the dependancies in C to Z meaning files which were referenced from C will now being referenced from Z:\ .

U need to check the apps urself whether they r working from Z or not. I can't do each & everything for u :P:D

For more information see here: Language Code Tables

Now lets start.

A. Adding Language:

Adding ur desired language to ur CFW is a tricky job. The easiest way to do it is by downloading a fw from navifirm which has ur language. Then export the language files from the rofs2 and import to ur cfw (i.e rofs2).

And remember that all the language files are present in rofs2.

Now go through the below steps to know how to export/import language from/to the rofs2 using NFE.

1. Download the rofs2 (which contains the language u want to export from) and extract it using NFE.

2. In NFE, go to tools -> Language Manager -> Import/Export Language and under the Export Language section select the language to be exported and click export.

M3u6qFxrhSo.png

The language file (*.lang) will be saved in the same directory in which the NFEstd present.

3. Now extract the rofs2 (in which u want to add ur language). Go to tools -> Language Manager -> Import/Export Language and under the Import Language Section, click Import & select the language file (*.lang) u exported from the rofs2 in 2nd step.

4. Then repack. Done ..!!

Here is another important link for u:

Adding Supported Languages

If u r unable to find ur language files then just request here & we'll try to provide ur language files. :)

B. Removing Unneeded Languages:

Suppose ur rofs2 contains two languages with codes 01 (British English) & 96 (Vietnamese) and u want to remove the Vietnamese language from ur cfw.

Note: Don't include 01 (English) in removing list because it can't be removed.

1. Search for all files ending with .r96 in ur rofs2 and delete all those files. Those are the language files for Vietnamese.

2. Edit languages.txt in Resource\Bootdata and remove the language codes which u want to delete.

3. Go to private\101F4CD2\Content\, resource\xhtml\, resource\applicationhelps\. Inside these folders, there are sub-folders named with numbers corresponding to each language. Delete those language folders u want to. Don't delete 01.

4. Go deeply into private\10207254\themes\ and find the homescreen files there within folders named '1.0'. The files usually end with *.o00NN. Again the two last digits NN stand for a language. Delete the unneeded ones.

5. Find files called T9*.dll in rofs2\sys\bin\. Don't delete the files T9English.dll & T9rel.dll. Other languages can be deleted.

6. Go to resource\qwerty\. Don't delete the file PtiQwertyEnglish.rsc. Others may be deleted.

7. Go to resource\multitap\. Don't delete PtiEnglish.rsc. Others may be deleted.

Modding Starter Files

What are starter files and what they do:

The 4 files named as Starter_Arm.rsc, starter_non_critical_1.rsc, starter_background_apps.rsc & starter_ui_seq.rsc are referred as starter files. U can fild them in rofs2\resource\.

These files are responsible for initializing the apps at start up.

Why we need to edit these starter files:

By modding the starter files we can get more ram at start up. We can also add the apps (which have auto-start funtionality) to the start up in our CFW by editing the starter files. For example, to add rompatcher to auto we need to add RPPAuto.exe to the starter_non_critical_1.rsc . I'll explain it later.

How to edit these files:

We will use RSC_Editor or ResEdit to edit these files.

Open RedEdit. Click Open File and select a starter file from the resource folder of the extracted rofs2. U'll see many processes there.

If u want to disable any process (say ***.exe) then just rename the ***.exe as ***.ex$ and the process will be disabled at start up. u can follow this method to disable unwanted processes in starter_non_critical & starter_background_apps. But u can't do like this for starter_arm. See the below note.

Note about editing Starter_Arm.rsc:

The starter_arm.rsc is quite different from other starter files. If u disable any process in this file by renaming the .exe to .ex$ method then it'll result in continuous rebooting of the phone.

So if u want to disable any unwanted process in starter_arm.rsc then u need to rename the ******.exe as apsexe.exe (******.exe is any unwanted process u want to disable).

This info was given by Aeronliru. So credits to him.

Some special info about starter_arm.rsc by shivam94:

In starter_arm.rsc, there are 3 processes put under reserve which are fbserv.exe,hwrmserver.exe and  ailaunch.exe. All these 3 apps are non-terminable.The ailaunch.exe is your homescreen process. That means you cannot terminate your homescreen. So , If you want to load any other hs like spbshell as your default hs, then put your spbshell .exe which is ShellMenu_20028b16.exe instead of ailaunch.exe . But on doing this, please note that you will not get your phone network.  So it is must to include ailaunch.exe in either starter_arm.rsc or starter_non_critical_1.rsc

Note:

What I mean by non-terminable is that if you try to terminate ailaunch.exe, then it automatically restarts again.

Editing starter files of s60v5 fw-detailed

How To Add Rompatcher in Start Up:

Integrate Rompatcher 3.1 into ur cfw. Then to add rp+ to start up (so that the patches can auto start), u need to edit the starter_non_critical_1.rsc. Do like below.

Replace z:\sys\bin\provisioningsc.exe with z:\sys\bin\RPPAuto.exe in starter_non_critical_1.rsc .

How To Add Apps With Auto Start To The Start Up:

I have explained the easiest method. Go through the steps below.

1. Just extract the application using sis content. Go to C_Private\101f875a\import\ . U'll find a .rsc file in it

(For example u want to add belle topbar application to start up. Just see the picture below to be specific to know which is the process responsible for auto start)

Posted Image

2. Open this .rsc file with resedit and u'll see a string in it which gives u info about the process responsible for auto starting the app.

(As u can see in the picture below. Here Belle_Topbar_Auto.exe is the process which is responsible for auto start of the app)

Posted Image

3. Now edit the starter_non_critical_1.rsc. Edit any unwanted process with this one as u did for Rompatcher.

U r done. :)

Modding The Files In 10202be9 Folder (Cenrep Mods):

The Private\10202be9 is the directory into which all the s60v5 developers and modders are looking for. This directory contains all the cenrep files (setting files) crucial for a smooth operation of the OS. Almost 80% above mods available in s60v5 forums are cenrep mods. All the files present in this directory are in .txt format. About 400+ files are present in this directory. We can edit these .txt files by changing some values in them. For example the kinetic scrolling mods available in forums are just done by modding the 20021192.txt file (present in private\10202be9 directory) with different values.

Each text file represent one application.

See the code below to know which text files represents which application.

Note regarding CREs:

Sometimes u may get the mods in .cre format. U need to put them in BE9\persists folder. These r the compiled form of the be9 mods and the problem is that they will only work from C:\. If we put them directly in Z:\ (i.e the rofs2) then they will create conflicts and u may get error after flashing. So they will work only if we put them in UDA. But when u format ur phone, these mods will be gone.

Not to worry. There is a method by which we can put the cre mods in Z:\ but they will work from C:\ and they will not be deleted after formatting also. We need to mod the scriptinit.txt file to achieve this. I'll explain the scriptinit modding later in this thread.

Its better to go for .txt mods rather than .cre mods.

0x1A int -1 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail
0x1B int -1 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail

The int values present in lines from 0xC to 0x1B are responsible for the entries in mesaging menu.

The values of different entries are as below:

New Message = 5

Inbox = 4098

Mailbox = 7

Sent = 4101

Draft = 4100

Outbox = 4099

Delivary Reports = 6

My Folders = 4104

Extra item (Conversations) = 8

not in use = -1

Suppose you want to place "my folders" in 1st row instead of "New message" you need to enter the value 4104 in the 0xC line.

i.e change

0xC int 5 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail

to

0xC int 4104 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail

And to hide any content just replace the int value with "-1" (without quote).

Suppose you want to hide the "mailbox" from messaging menu, search which line has int value "7" and replace the value with "-1".

i.e change

0xE int 7 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail

to

0xE int -1 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail

I just read the description of 101f87eb.txt file from HERE and modded this file.

Here u can get more clear info about the messaging menu mod.

2. Default Homescreen mod (Only For OFW or CFWs based on OFW):

Cenrep file -> 10207342.txt

U need to change the value in this line.

0x102750f0 int 536988645 16777216 cap_rd=ReadDeviceData cap_wr=WriteDeviceData

The values for different homescreen themes are as below.

Basic = 271068379

Contacts Bar = 536988645

Shortcuts Bar = 271068379

Suppose u want to make Basic as ur default homescreen theme. U have to do like below.

Change

0x102750f0 int 536988645 16777216 cap_rd=ReadDeviceData cap_wr=WriteDeviceData

to

0x102750f0 int 271068379 16777216 cap_rd=ReadDeviceData cap_wr=WriteDeviceData

We need to change the values in the two lines starting from 0x2 & 0x14

The value in 0x14 is the theme UID. Change the present UID value to the UID of the theme u want to make default.

i.e change

0x14 string "20022F28" 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail

to

0x14 string "2003DF53" 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail

The value in 0x2 is the decimal value of the UID of the theme. Find the decimal value of the UID of the theme u want to make default and change accordingly.

Change

0x2 string "537014056" 16777216 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=WriteDeviceData

to

0x2 string "537124691" 16777216 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=WriteDeviceData

4. Default Profile Name mod:

I have pointed out the strings responsible for startup tone, startup image, shutdown tone & shutdown image. the paths to the tones or images are to be mentioned in those strings. U have to change them accordingly.

U can also change the start up note WelcomE as u want...say Operating System Not Found  :rofl:=))

And finally the last 20110615:090000 is the time setting after flash.

Here the default date after flash: 15.06.2011

and the default time: 09:00 AM

But there is a glitch i.e when you enter the above date, u'll actually get 16.07.2011 instead of 15.06.2011

So if you need the date to appear as 15.06.2011, you need to enter 20110514 in that place.

This is because the date is offset by one 20100000=01.01.2010

Modding other files than the BE9 cenrep files:

1. The 10282BC4 Folder:

the 10282bc4 folder under private is also an important folder. It contains the rules. The rules r responsible for the light settings, key settings, vibration settings etc. They can be modded by using any resource editor or hex editor.

The light mods by mara r some examples of modding rules from this folder.

The tactile feedback in calls is also a rule mod.

Another rule mod os no vibration with unlock key.

2. Modding the Scriptinit.txt File:

What is scriptinit.txt ?: This is a text file present in rofs2\private\100059c9.

What does it do ?: This file is used to automatically create folders in desired drives after flashing the phone or formatting the phone.

The scriptinit will create folders and copy certain files as and when required to their respective places.

For example u integrated rompatcher in ur CFW. But now rompatcher requires the patches to be in either C:\Patches or E:\Patches. Someone from you may say that he will place the patches in UDA and will flash with UDA and so the matter is finished. But the problem is that after u give a hard reset to ur phone, the patches will also be deleted. To avoid this problem u need to write some commands in the scriptinit.txt file so that the patches folder will be automatically created in C:\ or E:\ as per ur command.

The default scriptini.txt looks like below:

Example (how to mod this file to copy the patches to E:\Patches after flash):

1st create a folder containing the Patches folder. The Patches folder contains the rp patches.

Lets say I made the Patches folder in a folder by the name "lrajesh555" in rofs2. So patches are in rofs2\lrajesh555\Patches

Now I'll add these two lines to the scriptinit.txe to create the E:\Patches folder and copy the patches from rofs2\lrajesh555\Patches to E:\Patches

MD E:\Patches\

CP Z:\lrajesh555\Patches\* E:\Patches\

So the final txt should look like below:

PLUGINS
MD E:\Patches\
CP Z:\lrajesh555\Patches\* E:\Patches\

CD C:\
MD xmppui\
CD C:\Private\
MD 2001A94D\

3. Remove the "message:" from writing message ui :

We want to remove the "Message:" from the message writing menu.

1. Start SymbianRSC.

2. Open your MsgEditorAppUi.rNN file

3. Go to the last point & do as shown in the figure.

5. MatrixMenu mod:

The easiest way is to do ur arrangement of menu as u wish in ur phone. Then go to C:\Private\200113dd\content\matrixmenudata.xml. Then copy the matrixmenudata.xml to ur pc and put into the respective folder in the rofs2 i.e put in rofs2\Private\200113dd\content\ . Replace the existing one with this modded one.

By the way another tool named as Symbian Menu Editor is also available using which u can edit the matrixmenudata.xml file in ur pc.

6. How to persist the homescreen after flash:

Edit rofs2\private\200159c0\install\view\hsps\00\viewconfiguration.xml .

THe UID of the widgets:

Profile Widget- 0x2001cb7c

Music Player- 0x10207c18

EMail Widget- 0x2001E2CA

Empty field- 0x2001f47f

Notifications- 0x200255b4

Shortcuts-0x20026f4f

(under shortcuts you can add four attribute, choose uids of apps you want)

Favorite contacts-0x20022EBA

Here u can get UIDs for a lots of apps. Plz visit this thread.

U can also use AppUIDViewer to know the UIDs of several apps.

7. Add ur desired font:

Download the font u want to use in ur CFW.

Then make 4 copies of it & rename them as:

s60snr.ttf

s60ssb.ttf

s60tsb.ttf

S60ZDIGI.ttf

Put all these 4 files in rofs2\resource\fonts

Here is the fonts collection for s60v5 by GizmoLord

8. Profile Widget after swype mod:

File: \private\200159c0\install\profile\hsps\00\widgetconfiguration.xml

Change the value as

true = profile widget will disappear after swype

false = won't disappear

Start up and shut down gif file collections

Many theme effects and icon packs can be found here

How to add ur configured apps into ur CFW:

Suppose u installed an application into ur phone (in C:\ or E:\). And u want to put it in ur CFW such that the configurations in the app won't change after flashing. Then just do one thing... Copy their private folders and save them in ur pc. The private folders of the applications are names as the UID of the apps.

Say u configured the kill me app and want to integrate this kill me confired by u so that after flashing the options will remains same as u changed before flashing. So just copy the folder C:\Private\EAFE014C or E:\Private\EAFE014C (EAFE014C is the UID of kill me) (C:\ or E:\ is the directory in which u installed kill me). Now integrate kill me to ur CFW and after integrating copy that private folder u saved to the corresponding location in rofs2.

In this way u can save ur games' data after flashing also so that after flashing u won't cry about losing ur high scores. :troll:

Final Tips For CFW Makers:

* Try to have a good practice of making separate folders for all ur extracted apps. Make another folder for the confirmed working mods u want to put in ur CFW. If u don't do like this then it would be very difficult to find which mod or which file is causing the bug (if u get any).

* Once u have cleaned ur rofs2, keep a back up of it. So that if anything goes wrong in the midway then u wouldn't need to start everything from the scratch again.

* Keep the original extracted rofs2 in a separate folder. At least the original BE9 files. Here by original i mean the files untouched or unmodified by u,,Not the OFW base. Whether it may be OFW,C6 or N97. I mean to say that keep the original files of ur base fw in a separate folder.

* Before u release it in public, check it thoroughly for bugs. U may also give the files to some beta testers to be tested.

Bug removal tips:

Bugs are the most irritating things after making ur CFW. There are 90% chances of getting bugs if u have just put the mods found in forums into ur CFW without testing them. Try to solve them by urself or ask in forums about the bugs u r facing and get them solved before finalizing ur CFW.

Mostly u can find few clues from the bugs. Say u r getting error with camera application. Then U r sure that there is something wrong with the files related to camera app. So try to remove the camera files n replace them with the original camera files and keep replacing camera files until u get no error with the camera app. In this way u can solve the bugs.

If u find some major bugs then just feel free to ask here or in other forums.

And the most irritating thing is that u need to flash ur phone more than 200 or 300 times if u r making a cfw completely from scratch (means clean c6/n97/ofw base ports)

Finally hope ur CFW contans no bugs and others enjoy ur CFW. :)

Thanx for ur patience for reading this whole thread.

Hope in few days i can see hundreds of new CFWs in CFW release thread. :P:D

Let me know if I left anything so that I'll try to add them.

Thanx

This guide is prepared by a symbian s60v5 modder , VGP, with help of vizhigal, which helps you to prepare your own repartitioned rofs2.  So binh24,good bye !  :P

This is a short guide by the help of which anyone can prepare his own repartitioned core ,rofs2 and rofs3 for a Nokia 5233 CFW.

This is based on v51.1.002 firmware of nokia 5233 (RM -625) for which the total rofs space is 119.25 MB.(see below for details)

NOTE: The partition sample values given is for RM-625 only.For other phones it is different.So other phone users if want to do this,use this only for comparison.

Tools Required: NFE 0706 by t0trader and Nokia Cooker 2.9 (or later)

STEP-1 :

Put all your original firmware files in a folder

1) Open your original firmware(OFW) core(.C00 file) with nokia cooker. Delete all files. (now you deleted the  rofs1 files)

    Now click 'unlock rofs'. Change the values from 2B to 2C.

    Click 'extend ROFS1'. Now click 'save firmware'.

2) Open your ofw rofs2 with nokia cooker. Remove all the files. Save the firmware.

3) Open your ofw rofs3 with nokia cooker. Remove all the files. Save the firmware.

4) Open your ofw uda file with nokia cooker. Remove all the files. Save the firmware.

    (this is not important.Do this to get a blank uda so that to get max space in phone C drive)

STEP-2 :

Run t0trader NFE0706. Change its language to english (click the button at right top corner for that)

1) Open the previously saved core with NFE0706.

    Double click on the area in between 'open file' button and 'unpack' button. This will open the 'adjust partition info' window.

   

    Posted Image

    Here is where we are going to adjust our partiton values. Dont worry it is easy to do.

    First understand the values displayed.

    Posted Image

a) You can see rofs1 max partition size as 045C0000.

    What this means ?

    Open windows calculator in scientific view (programmer view if win7). Select Hex mod.

    Enter the value 045C0000. You may end up with as shown in the image.

    Now change to Dec mod. You can see the value as 73138176.

    Divide this number by 1024. Once again divide it by 1024. You get the value as 69.75.

    This means max size given for rofs1 in OFW is 69.75 MB.

    Posted Image

B) You can see rofs2 max partition size as 02480000.

    Open windows calculator in scientific mod. Select Hex mod.

    Enter the value 02480000. You may end up with as shown in the image.

    Now change to Dec mod. You can see the value as 38273024.

    Divide this number by 1024. Once again divide it by 1024. You get the value as 36.5.

    This means max size given for rofs2 in OFW is 36.5 MB.

    Posted Image

c) You can see rofs3 max partition size as 00D00000.

    Open windows calculator in scientific mod. Select Hex mod.

    Enter the value 00D00000. Now change to Dec mod. You can see the value as 13631488.

    Divide this number by 1024. Once again divide it by 1024. You get the value as 13.

    This means max size given for rofs3  in OFW is 13 MB.

    The total rofs space that we can use in RM-625 is 69.75+36.5+13 = 119.25 mb

(NOTE:  If you open  binh24 core for RM-625 V51.1.2 with NFE0706 and check the partition info as above, you can see rofs1=7.375 MB (useless i think), rofs2=110.875 MB, rofs3=1 MB. Total=7.375+110.875+1 = 119.25 MB. We got the same value as when added above in ofw. So the total rofs space needs to be a constant.)

2) Now we are going to enter our own repartition values in the above prepared ofw core file.

    I would suggest to give a minimum safe value to rofs1 (0.5mb) and rofs3 (0.5 MB) and give the remaining space to rofs2.

    what will be the rofs2 space now ?

    Easy.

    119.25-(0.5+0.5) = 119.25-1 = 118.25 MB

    WOW !! Our rofs2 size is 8mb more in size than binh24 rofs2 !!

    Posted Image

a) We are giving 0.5 MB as rofs1 max space. Open windows calculator in Dec mod.

    0.5 x 1024 x 1024 = 524288

    Change to hex mod. You can see 80000.

    Since we need to enter 8 digits, add required number of zeros before the number.

    i.e, enter the rofs1 maximum size as 00080000.

    Click ' Adjust ' button which is present right side to it.

B) We are giving 118.25 MB as rofs2 max space. Open windows calculator in Dec mod.

    118.25 x 1024 x 1024 = 123994112

    Change to hex mod. You can see 7640000

    Since we need to enter 8 digits, add required number of zeros before the number.

    i.e, enter the rofs2 maximum size as 07640000

    Click Adjust. Select the rofs2 that prepared in stage 1.

c) We are giving 0.5 MB as rofs3 max space. Open windows calculator in Dec mod.

    0.5 x 1024 x 1024 = 524288

    Change to hex mod. You can see 80000.

    Since we need to enter 8 digits, add required number of zeros before the number.

    i.e, enter the rofs3 maximum size as 00080000

    Click Adjust. Select the rofs3 that prepared in stage 1.

    Now click OK. Close NFE0706.

STEP-3 :

Now again open the pepared core with nokia cooker. Press save firmware to repack.

Now again open the pepared rofs2 with nokia cooker. Press save firmware to repack.

Now again open the pepared rofs3 with nokia cooker. Press save firmware to repack.

(The above steps are needed)

You are almost done. But do not flash with the prepared files now, because they are empty.

Extract any c6 or n97 based cfw with nokia cooker. Copy all the files in it somewhere in your PC.

Now open our prepared rofs2 with nokia cooker. Add the saved n97 or c6 cfw files to this rofs2.

Repack and flash the rofs2 with the newly prepared core. Done.

(You can avoid the rofs3)

Congrats !! You have just flashed with your own repartitioned firmware. :)
