  1. Hi faenil, just happy to see you after the previous post, I thought I will miss you πŸ˜‰ . Just one question. I like to watch DVD-ripped movies on my i8910, but there’re random lags. Even on the Demo Helicopter clip, by far, it’s the smoothest clip my i8910 play, but there’re also some lags (maybe 1 lag over 10 playback). Do you have any idea, or do you know a smoother video player :mrgreen: ?

    I think it is normal…you can’t even watch HD movies on some REAL COMPUTERS, if they’re dated…
    so I think it’s obsious that a mobile phone using a mobile 3d accelerator has some lags…btw, I don’t know if there could be a solution

  2. What are you doing here mate??? you should be studying, am I right???
    I will try the video later…
    Cheers. πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

    hey man gimme 2 days of relax after 3 nights of study and endless days πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Faenil!

    Yes the OC is real and works (I have to test the SIS file available on forums.samsung…. by wireless) but it seems to suck a lot of battery. I donΒ΄t find it too useful as i8910 is already fast for what it is meant to do πŸ™‚

    About SPB the version 3.5 is still the “WinMo”, the v5 will be a breakthru and not yet available AFAIK.

    Luck for your exams!!!

    I was not talking about “TurboHD”, I’m talking about the new screenshots posted on that website…

  5. Hi man :)why SPB mobile shell is not fullscreen and we have to see ugly symbian top bar with standard baterry and signal bars…What about new widgets and skins for mobile shell how it looks like??? THX for answer πŸ™‚

    have you tried the release version or the leaked beta one?

  6. I tried the Julyplayer with a low resolution MKV (624×360) and itΒ΄s very slow (around 5fps), even with TurboHD ON (600Mhz instead 550Mhz). It also does not read my RMVB files.

    ItΒ΄s useless IMO as MKV + RMVB it clearly does not play (and A8 600Mhz is a lot faster than normal ARM11 434MHz) and if we have to convert with can perfectly convert videos to MP4 / RM / DIVX.

    PS:
    @redguardsoldier: convert your videos to MP4 (480×320 or 640×360 30fps) with FORMATFACTORY and you wonΒ΄t have a problem, it plays perfect. You can also try the patch TurboHD to give extra speed (AFAIK it overclocks the entire SoC from 550 to 600Mhz so the CPU + GPU + BUS should be overclocked and play even smoother).

  7. Hi Faenil,

    the player ready my .mkv-files but is very slow. I hope they increase the speed an add subtitles. This would be very cool because I was always searching for a player like that.

    as I said, it’s in its initial stage…I hope they’ll improve the speed soon πŸ˜‰

  8. im having shell 3.5 on my hd and beleive me its amazing feels like i have new phone in my hand i gv 10 out of 10 to this utility …must have utility.. 😈 😈 😈

    read jorn’s advice πŸ™‚

  10. anky: I am sorry – but your question just cannot get answered in a proper way.
    Because it all depends on personal taste. Some like Symbian, some prefer Android, others are happy with Windows Mobile… It’s the same with questions like Windows or Mac OS: In the end, most users suggest the OS they use. Not because it’s the best, just because it’s what they got themselves.
    There’s just one solution to your dilemma: Get your hands on an Xperia 10, take some time and try if you really like and really need it’s features.
    Best is what suits YOU best. πŸ™‚

    thanks for your answer πŸ˜‰
    I’d add that symbian is much more difficult to make software on, that’s why most of the programmers have shifted to android, and that’s why I don’t think s^3 will have much success.

  11. Hi folks,

    has anybody succeeded in installing Wikitude on our phone. I use N2o3 and encountered an error teling me, that QT-stuff is too old…. ???

    any idea ??

    Campai Rhonin

    I have never tried wikitude but I seem to remember that it’s not compatible with i8910

  12. @fevves

    i think its not ur bull s..hit samsung forum where u always use to bark like a mull f..k..i..ng dog

    LEARN TO BEHAVE PROPERLY PLEASE, THIS IS NOT A WAREZ SITE NOR A PUB.
    thanks πŸ™‚

    about fevves: you won’t easily find good mods like him on the web.

  13. faniel u wanna say symbian dnt have bright future cause of technical teams r now supporting android??nw im seriously thinking to buy xperia cause i like android cause i already used tmobile g1 that was gr8 only in terms of surfing.but xperia rocks with multimedia support also im not seeing some thing really interesting coming for our hd in near future. πŸ˜₯ πŸ˜₯ πŸ˜₯ but before taking my decision can faniel plzz help me to know whose camera is better xperia or omnia hd.also in next update xperia will be getting 16m colours. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ to look around all plz sort me out from that confussion:?: ❓ ❓ ❓

  14. Hi man, do you know something about future new widgets and skin possibilities??? 😎
    THX

    there should be a 3d messaging centre, that’s all i know πŸ™‚

  15. Ofcourse I’m talking about SPB mobile shell πŸ˜‰

    there should be a 3D message centre in version 5.0…as far as I know…
    don’t know anything about new widgets..

  16. Now that we spbshell, would be nice to make a rom spbshell dedicated to removing all that is possible, and that each person installing, spbshell paying your license.
    or pre-integrating the trial version with an upgrade path to new versions.

    This is only an opinion

    what would the advantage be? πŸ™‚

  17. 3) Seems like Overclocking is possible!! Visit hyperx’s website to learn more about it
    One of hyperx’s friends (maybe szakalit) has discovered a way to overclock our i8910!!
    NO OVERCLOCK YET, EITHER IT WAS A MARKETING MOVE, OR HE CAN’T TALK ABOUT IT, I DON’T KNOW, BUT I HAVE TO SAY IT’S NOT TRUE YET

    SO TRUE !

    the phone goes to 600 anyway when it needs to , its like a pc cpu , when its doing almost nothing the cpu goes on a low Hz and faster when your working on it.
    The turbo patch can be done manually also.
    Its just patched so you dont need to so it manually.

    its no overclocking at all , its acually useless. and markting move is the correct term for it.

    And what makes me mad is that since V4 everyone has battery problems and never got a awnser from the man himself.

    If only you had a dutch localization Faenil and i would use your dinner πŸ˜€

    V4 and V5 are overcooked and nothing new added or fine tuned.

    And at least faenil, you give proper awnsers to everyone and honest awnsers.

    Am leaning more and more to your side now after almost a year on HX FW. dutch dutch dutch πŸ˜€

    the day you have dutch, i will test your fw and probally donate .

    After all this time i stood up for hyperx and supported him , helped people on the site and even made a forum for support ( what he first liked and then not anymore due more work ?? while i said to moderate the forum myself) and donated , i feel neglected, mad and not getting awnsers on my questions.

    There i spit it out !

    Faenil dammit when you had good exams party’s and shagging , give us DUTCH hahaha

    At the end all cooked roms have almost same patches and tunings from other people that helped, but respect for the cookers themself and the creators of good patches for them !

    for the few months i been following this website , i see your a chilled reasonable guy Faenil who gives as much as possible support. That does alot to people.

    I dont even care anymore for new coocked FW , flashing almost every month got me discusted from it and really tired of it.

    For now HX V3-29 is most stable , best battery and not over coocked rom for me and i flashed back to it and i like it.

    But the day you got Dutch , i flash one more time to test yours Faenil and thats it.

    At some point people get tired of the wars accusations, lies and flashing on the same phone over and over again.

    So i come to my next point : whats gonna be your new phone in the future? πŸ˜€ and would you still cook ?

    Cheers and good luck with your study !

    Man I obviously know what the 600mhz is about πŸ™‚ in my post I was referring to the 2000 score that hyperx got on speedygo…
    I thought that was like 1ghz overclock, but as I said many times, that software (speedygo) is so UNRELIABLE that it could give 2000score just by using tricks or just using luck :)…that was what I was talking about ^^
    and I think he got it with one of that two methods, coz he didn’t want to confirm that it was about overclocking…
    About the dutch localization: yeh I’ll make it when I have some spare time (I hope to be able to release it before the end of June) but I am so busy these days…
    Btw, could you please tell me the latest dutch fw? πŸ˜€
    I really appreciated your words, and I’m glad that people understand my willing to help πŸ™‚
    I read many of your posts since I met you on spbclub, and I came to know that you opened a forum for hyperx support πŸ™‚ that was when I said: wow hyperx is really getting famous πŸ˜€ (no irony)
    I’m glad that you’re waiting the dutch localization and I’ll release it as soon as I can…
    I have lots of things to try out, lots of news which I haven’t talked to my fans yet about πŸ™‚ Because I just haven’t got time to make my experiments…
    Stay tuned πŸ™‚
    Cheers ^^
    ps please don’t feed the war between cookers…Just said “I tried x’s fw and I’d like to try yours coz I’m not satisfied”…I don’t want people to say “X is shit, your’s better”
    thanks πŸ™‚

  18. Hi Faenil, i just flashed N203 last week. Everything works perfect. The only problem for me is GPS, It’s hard to find my position even indoor or outdoor (sometimes never found). I don’t know if i’ve set something wrong or not? I use ovi map from your site. Comfirm agian that everything worked perfectly, also other services from ovi map (online). Thank you.

    Just try with another gps software…fix WITHOUT AGPS with COLD GPS CHIP takes about 4mins…
    about 1 mins if you enable AGps, some seconds if you have already used the gps chip some mins before…
