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)

An earlier Flowbox development report and snap

Some feature from Flowbox have been completed today. Now I can browse around my files and folders. πŸ™‚ However, it still need a lot of work and improvement, since in the current stage, it still working slowly and buggy.

As of now, I have able to change the widget size and image size using separated configuration files. To read configuration, I use ConfigFile class by kidscracker, which used on his E2 Light application. So for theme system, it is working now.

Flowbox, development plan :)

On my previous post, I said that I wan’t to create an application using PictureFlow widget as it’s interface. Now, the idea is ready, the coding will be begin in short time. Here is the idea.

First, what the application does is a file manager with the awesome PictureFlow interface. So, we will able to browse our phone/card directory. That’s the basic of this application, and I named it Flowbox. πŸ™‚

Developing a PictureFLow widget application

Now I can get the PictureFlow source files compiled, I started to create an application based of this widget. The PictureFlow widget is originally created by Ariya Hidayat and ported to our Linux phones by the well known member of MotorolaFans, blackhawk (aka Ketut P. Kumajaya). The project page is in http://code.google.com/p/pictureflow/, also the original thread is inΒ here. Thanks to both of them, know I can create some awesome application with it. For the begining of this project, it will be still image viewer with some more features added. The name of this application will be decided when the beta is ready. πŸ˜‰
