MMS fixed

Found someone’s blog, where people discuss MMS problem with the Softbank. Installed new Mms.apk — had some problem with FC (force close) at first because of old data left, reinstalled with wipe, everything normal. Sending/receiving MMS works like a charm.

Another good point was the message access. On my previous phones, messages were grouped by “Sent”, “Unsent”, “Undelivered” or something, which made it very difficult to follow a conversation. Android keeps messages in threads, so all messages from/to same person are together.

Please, don’t forget to change “User Agent” in MMS settings, otherwise you won’t be able to send/receive MMS.


Just in case

Here are links I used to root the phone. They might get old or broken, but at least I would like to save them here as a starting point for someone who would like to root his phone and has no idea where to begin:

  1. how to make a “golden card
  2. how to install a rooted ROM image
  3. how to setup internet and MMS access for Softbank

These three steps will install WWE (World Wide English) ROM with older version (1.15) of firmware, which may be replaces later with newer and/or modified ROM image.

I don’t assume any responsibility about this process. I did this once with my phone and it worked, that’s all.
