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.

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™‚

Autorun Manager from Revival project

While we doing Revival project a little while ago with arctu, Taurnil, and others, we actually have working hard for some cool application for our E2. This project, unfortunately have been aborted since all of us have no time to continue it. One of the application I made, the Autorun Manager is one of the hardest application I have ever made. This application used PHP as its programming language and use arctu’s show* binaries as the GUI. Since the project stopped, I think I need to release it as standalone application that compatible with most monster pack out here.

Why PHP? Because it is fast, more than Bash. The meaning of the fast, is the speed while processing data and not the GUI speed, since show* binaries is fairly slow. So, with PHP, I can made more data processing while not sacrificing the speed. It is also more flexible.

Playing with QT QWidget

Hmm… Actually, I’m pretty tired of incomplete SDK for ROKR E2. That’s why maybe I should go using my own widget inherited by QWidget. I’m still playing around with it and at least the hello world works. LOL πŸ™‚ I don’t know if this will be a better solution or maybe better to stick with EZX style one. Well, hope I can made something useful with it. I will see if I could get key event from it. πŸ˜‰

After all, I’m still newbie. If some profesional want to help me, let’s chat on MSN or YM. πŸ™‚

The Adv Menu Organizer source code

Ok guys, this is my new application source. If you haven’t know this, please take a look on my website. This application will be useful to organizing your menu faster and easier.

This is my first time creating a C++ and QT application. Therefore, sorry if the code is a bit messy. This application is created using SDK by blackhawk with E2 header files taken from lasly’s SDK. Lately, I got header files from arctu, but it doesn’t make differences whether it compiled using any of these SDK.

Some hello world examples

Here is some hello world example for anyone who interested to develop a native application for ROKR E2. All of the example is very simple and easy to understand as long as you have basic C++ and QT. You can use SDK from lasly or blackhawk, both is working for these application. If you haven’t had cross compiler, then read first here.

The first example is a message dialog like below.

Setup cross compiler for ROKR E2

Now, lets have a look on how to setup a cross compiler, so that you can developt a native application for ROKR E2 (EZX). We need ezx crosstool to build our cross compiler, thanks to Samr7. Download the ezx_crosstool0.6.zip fromΒ Samr7’s blog or here.

Before we proceed, make sure that you have all the requirement first:

  • a Linux PC
  • internet connection
  • 2 GB hard disk space
  • basic Linux knowledge
