Digsby, multiprotocol IM client

My installed Pidgin didn’t work well this past few days so I started looking for another multiprotocol IM client that is free and customizeable, then I ended up using Digsby. Well, why didn’t I use the single IM client? Simple, because I need to online in three (actually two) IM service at once, MSN, YM and ICQ (sometime). Digsby also support email notification and social networking such as Facebook and MySpace! This save my life a lot. 🙂 Also, I prefer the ad-free client… Oh, also, if you see the left sidebar on this blog now, you will see Digsby widget there! Yup, now you can chat with me directly from this blog… Don’t forget to set your name first so I can identify you. 😉

Okay, back to the client. During the installation, there is some ads and a few application that you need to install. There is total 4 application (free and trial, including Digsby), but I uninstall all of them leaving Digsby alone since I don’t need the other. 🙂 This is fine though, since it is available for free, the important thing is, there is no ads anymore after this…

E2 hang while messaging

Well, I got few question about this before, but before it happened on me, I can’t possibly know what’s wrong… So, just now, my phone freeze when trying to writing message. Not sure why it happens, but it stopped writing in the fourth character. Any key can’t respond. So I just reboot, hoping it will solve it.

Then, after phone boot up, I tried message again, writing and freeze again. Uhh… So I connect my phone to PC (the phone still functional, just it can’t respond any direct input) and start telneting.

MAXX IV first impression

Yesterday, I flash my phone (as you might know, ROKR E2 :)) with the newest available firmware or Monster Pack (MP) from our Russian modder, 3-D. The thread is here. I download this files on the Megaupload mirror and on the average speed of 12 kB/s (still damn slow….but better than before), need 1 hours or so to finish it.

Then, I started to backup my phone data (actually just the sysDatabase folder inside ezx_user), power off my phone and remove both SD card and SIM card. After this, I turn on my phone on bootloader mode. This can be archived by holding voice key while powering the phone. Then, I open RSD Lite, connect my phone and start flashing the sbf. (MAXX IV only come with one sbf file)

Editing skin, more icon in main menu

Do you want to have more icon in your ROKR E2 menu instead of the basic 3×3 such as 3×4, 4×4 or even more? Then, editing the skins configuration files (the ini extention files) will be the best way. It’s pretty easy, and along with this article, I will show you how I made my 3×3 menu to 3×4 and 4×4.

To edit this files, you only need a text editor. Now, we will edit the common.ini and mainmenu.ini only. Here is how it looks before editing:
