Custom ROM for X500+

leave a comment »

I’ve been using custom ROM for my WM phone for more than half a year. It was the only reasonable ROM by KVA with WM6.1. It was exceptionally good also but KVA stopped updating it long time ago. Lorbas took over and produced a lot of versions. Earlier ones were not that far from KVA’s, we (community) were trying to fix many small issues and bugs but the latest 2.4 is a different story. It’s complete, fast and reliable. Read the rest of this entry »

Restore/fix dial skin in WM6

with one comment

Yesterday I’ve downloaded some dial skins for my WM6 phone and one of them turned out to be QVGA. It was a mess and I couldn’t uninstall it or overwrite with another one, probably because the file was locked in use. Before I gave up and reinstalled my OS I’ve searched through the registry. Looking for the name of the skin turned out results pointing at phcan(name).dll files.

Well, long time no see. Please forgive me but I’ve been busy. Now I’m back on track and promise to update the blog as often as possible. I’m also pleased to see that quite a lot of people visit my humble site, so I assume that knowledge gathered here is still useful. Let’s go on than with the news: Read the rest of this entry »

Skype Beta – The end of Skype?

with 2 comments

There has just been released a new beta of Skype 4.0 Beta 3 and Skype for Windows Mobile 2.5 Beta.

Skype Mobile – It  is supposed to work better but looks exactly the same as the old one, still you can’t use voice through EDGE conveniently and sound comes from the rear speaker instead of the ear piece of my Eten. Oh wait, they’ve changed status icons so you can’t tell anymore if the user is on or offline. You can try and install it (remove previous one first), no harm and maybe after throughout tests it will turn out better. Read the rest of this entry »

Eten X500+ yearly review

with 2 comments

Well, I’ve promised to write this review half a year ago but better now than never… right? Currently the device is quite old and it even has its successor – X650 (which is basically all the same), however X500+ is still a very good choice, prices go down and it has a solid position on the market. Here is a comprehensive review of X500+ which points out all the features, functions, fancy stuff, etc so I want duplicate it. I’ll focus only on most important issues after a year spent with the device in my pocket.

NetFront 3.5

with 3 comments

Mobile browser wars continue and last time Opera was my choice (mostly). Thanks to Timmi’s comment I’ve discovered the best ever browser – NetFront 3.5 – which I recon can be beaten only by new Firefox. Fast and smart are the main advantages but there is a lot more. It all begins with properly rendered pages exactly the same way as your desktop computer does. You can easily scroll them with your thumb or stylus, zoom out and in with 2 taps and you always have a thumbnail map of the page. Brilliance goes on.

My mobile software selection

with 2 comments

This was supposed to be ready long time ago… well it is now. This is a selection of my must have freeware software which was tested during many months and proved to be reliable, fast, small and yet very powerful. One of my favorite futures is that you don’t need to install most of them every time you hard reset. Store them like your documents and use when needed (you don’t use them every day). Just copy .exe to your SD once and run via file explorer. You can always add a shortcut if you need.
