Me and hyperx keep having the same ideas, i8910 keeps getting new life :)

It must be something like telepathy or I don’t know what xD But I’m happy because we’re having a nice competition and we’re not going against each other making war and all that stuff πŸ™‚ So please, don’t ruin this balance πŸ™‚

By the way, this is what I discovered during the afternoon… πŸ™‚

I promised not to publish this news, but given the fact that hyperx is also working on it, I’ll publish it to avoid flames and whatelse…

Ok, guys, a new so far unsolved problem has now just disappeared!

You know so far you were forced to have the same default theme in the musicplayer, you could only change the system theme, but the mediaplayer theme always remained the same default one…

I’ll show you one example in the video! πŸ˜‰

If you feel my effort and appreciate my work, please consider donating a bit πŸ™‚ thanks ^_^

  1. sarebbe fantastico se tu e hyperx lavoraste insieme! pensa cosa riuscireste a fare! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    non accadrΓ  hyperx ha sempre detto che vuole stare solo

  2. itΒ΄s nice but i dont need something like that.
    i hope you be able to integrate a keybord like the iphone but no dayhand or opera.

    i dont understand that we got a perfekt hardware better then the N97, XM5800 or Iphone 3G (600mhz and 400mhz gpu same as the Iphone 3G S) but the I8910 is not smooth at work everything lag. πŸ˜₯

    I have no solution to this at the moment, but maybe I’ll work on it πŸ˜‰

  3. You are much better than Hypex. at least in moral. I know that you have great idea but andy has a better advertises about his works.
    there are so many ideas that you can do. like call recorder, answering machine, call cheater, anti theft and anti virus software compatibilities, fixing flash files (swf) to work with hardware abilities like auto rotate in flash games(some of picobrothers products), vibration and more …
    Sorry for bad English

    thanks man πŸ™‚
    about call recorder, I made some progress about it πŸ™‚
    call cheater, I’m sincere, I won’t spend time on such things… πŸ™‚
    fixing flash, I have not solution to this at the moment… sorry

  4. Hi Faenil

    New Idea for you to work on: Ability to put the phone on loudspeaker at or before accepting an incoming call. This will be great. Is it possible ?

    ehm…I don’t see any reason to spend time on it πŸ™‚
    why should it be so useful? πŸ˜€

  5. @Armin

    Agree with armin that you really have very very high morals….good be a nice human than an inventor…but you have both the qualities at same time….as i said before nice words in nicer way….great going, keep it up bro!

    thanks bro πŸ™‚

  6. Hmmmm. Skinnable Media Player doesn’t really float my boat tbh! πŸ˜•

    If it does the job it was designed for then, for me, it works. Just a different colour of the app’ isn’t really important as you don’t sit there looking at it all the time that you’re listening to music!

    If HX will allow, I’d prefer you to inbuild a patcher app’ in order to auto turn on turbo or turn it off and change other things on the fly. The stability of your firmware with a functionality app’ like that would be fantastic.

    I didn’t understand your first point…
    btw, about the turbo, is that needed? 50mhz more? oh come on guys…

  7. I’ve just recently flashed to n203 Faenil and it’s very impressive, I can’t believe how stable it is. I also love seeing these surprises you keep rolling out on here; I think your doing an absolutely fantastic job, keep it up!

    thanks man πŸ™‚

  8. Same ideas is the word, implementations is different though, and I don’t believe in telepathy thing… I’m sure you’re getting my drift.

    got it…

  9. hi faenil where can i talk u…. not here in comments, as i think i had a good idea, something very easy and simple that u can easily put on ur cf. but according to me very useful.

    you can find my email in the support section πŸ˜‰

  10. dude desperately waiting for ur n204 with fixed kinetic scrolling in music player…

    I don’t have a solution to the ks in mediaplayer at the moment.

  11. Just wondering if Skype will ever work with our phone?
    Would be nice to see a modified version of Skype which did work with i8910


    we need samsung to update the firmware

  12. I have an idea, instead of trying to add so many new mainly cosmetic features to our phone why not first work on those Applications which only work on Nokia and fix them to work on our Samsung i8910 phones……. Don’t get me wrong, all these new features which have already been added are GREAT and very useful,

    but it would be a lot more helpful to be able to use ALL All s60v5 apps which work on Nokia like Skype, Call Recordering, Voice Dialing
    and so many other apps which currently do not work with our phones.


    because we’re concentrating on things we CAN do…not dreams…
    btw I already said I made some step forward re call recording

  13. Misterjunky u r awesome. u exactly said wat everyone should say. i think all the applications r avaliable for nokia. but more than many apps dont work on our omnia hd.

    i think somebody should try to put the x6 rom in our omnia hd. and i think x6 now hav multi touch web browser.

  14. ciao mitico πŸ™‚

    si puo’ fare qualcosa per il vivavoce? tipo selezionarlo prima che rispondono oppure usando tipo il tasto centrale…
    per il resto gia’ so che ci ristupirai πŸ™‚

    non saprei come fare al momento

  15. Well, now it seems like a close competition… Reminiscent of Formula 1 and the stuff somehow πŸ™‚ It will be really interesting to try both the upcoming fws.
    But putting the lyrics aside, some questions bother me for some time already. Faenil, is it possible to implement a truly international fw? I mean, at least that it could render European, Asian symbols, Cyrillics and so on AT THE SAME TIME… And if the fw would have some means to input Japanese, Korean and Chinese symbols, that would be absolutely awesome.
    Also, I support the idea proposed for quite a time already, to have a possibility of switching from full QWERTY to a numerical keypad on an accelerometer event. Meaning, in portrait you get the keypad and in landscape it switches to QWERTY. Isn’t it a great idea? Or is it just impossible to implement?

    And the last question. Some time ago I bought the QO Acrobat Reader 2.5.496, but was unable to install it on my phone, getting the “Update error” no matter on which fw I tried (including the stock one) to. Can you possibly tell me what could be the reason? It’s an absolutely dumb situation: I have the license, but have to resort to a pirated version simply because the licensed one won’t install.
    Yet another question πŸ™‚ Since i8910 is SO SLOW working with .pdf, could it be at all possible to temporarily boost the CPU for 200-300 MHz or more (that would be useful not only for the .pdfs, you know πŸ™‚ )?

    I think it is possible to make such rom with all the characters inside…but I don’t think many people need it,..

  16. To rock:
    “and i think x6 now hav multi touch web browser.”
    And I think that a dolphin was the first human on Mars… Let’s get real already, WE WON’T HAVE a multitouch on S60v5.

  17. A quando tutte queste novitΓ  definitivamente? Ci sono possibilitΓ  per il voice call?

    al momento non penso di lavorare sul voice call, perΓ² vedrΓ² πŸ˜‰

  18. In continuation of the Unicode topic: what if we could while being in Japan, China, or any country at all, just point the camera at a road sign (a shop signboard, a newspaper headline, you name it), click the shutter button and get the text there OCR’ed and put into phone’s clipboard for pasting it into a dictionary… Or just paste it right into the Google Translate widget and have a translation of the text a couple of seconds later.
    Well, I’m not into Google Translate or any machine translation for that matter, but for the traveling folks who don’t exceptionally care about learning languages that could be a door to endless possibilities. Maybe this is implemented on some mobile platform already, but it would be nice to have such a feature on i8910.

    are you kidding? πŸ™‚

  19. i’m on HX7 and i want to try faenil’s software!
    QUESTION: after flashing my phone to n2o3, can i return to HX firmwares??
    I appreciate your work faenil!! thnx

    you can always flash any firmware you want to πŸ™‚

  20. Hello Faenil. May you please try to make the following ideas possible please :

    1- The call log not deleted after rebooting or switching off the phone.
    2- Let us able to use call recording applications with i8910.
    3- Let us able to use AntiVirus with i8910.
    4- Let us able to use NOKIA applications & games with i8910.
    5- Improve the video recording at nights.

    1) it doesn’t get deleted in none of the case you mentioned…
    2) I don’t think we’ll ever get a solution to this…
    3) I don’t think I’m going to work on this, this is most probably a compatibility issue of the software
    4) I’m not sure if we’ll ever find a solution to this..I hope so…but it’s not easy..
    5) mmm, I don’t think there’s anything we can improve…


  21. Hello, you’re a legend!
    Let me ask you: could you add codecs (wmv and mkv) to media player?
    Ciao, sei un mito!
    Vorrei chiederti: potresti aggiungere codec (wmv e mkv) al lettore multimediale?

    Non penso…non ho idea di come si faccia al momento

  22. Faenil:

    So I guess the only way to get most all of the Nokia Apps to work with our i8910 is to get some kind of Nokia Emulator πŸ˜‰


  23. Wow, Faenil, this is so cool.

    Please, please also do a Chinese localization.

    Thank you so much!

    I think I’ll make a chinese localization, but please give me some time, it’s not my first priority πŸ˜‰

  24. hehe reminds me of “Clash of the Titans” movie πŸ˜‰ though Awesome Faenl!! want you to nail it mate and be first at inventing, donation on the way πŸ˜€

    thank you man πŸ™‚

  25. But what’s wrong with including the Unicode support anyway? Is it more difficult to realize it than to make different localizations? Well, if the support implies a major performance hit then it’s possibly not worth bothering… But if it works just fine and doesn’t require a lot of tinkering around with a fw, just what would you loose anyway? Maybe even a patch could provide such a capability. And there is a lot of Chinese people out there who just need an ability to read domestic sites. And there is at least one person, who would love to not only see East Asian symbols (meaning Japanese, Korean and Chinese) the way they are, but also to use a dictionary software with them.

    full characters supports involves using 24mb of fonts! πŸ™‚ instead of the usual 1.2mb πŸ™‚ and the phone gets slower, it is already slower in chinese localization which needs 4mb fonts

  26. I wasn’t kidding about the “point-and-translate” feature either. Well, if there is no OCR software on Symbian capable of doing this then nothing can we do about it, but if there is one, that’s a whole different matter.

  27. I got so used to seeing new surprises everyday.. Today I didn’t find one πŸ™ kidding! 😎 But you’re doing some seriously good work Faenil.. You’re the man!

    ahahha thanks man πŸ™‚

  28. Faenil, great to see those news from you!

    If i8910 has those Qt libraries, will it be compatible with Nokia N8 (S^3) apps/games?

    Another thing: I use Ovi Store on i8910 *but* lots of software (specially movies) are low quality made for low end S60v5 phones. On my old 5800XM Ovi Store automatically selected HQ movies, on i8910 it doesnΒ΄t. Any way to fix it?

    theorically, S^3 games and apps will be compatible if written in QT

    I have no idea about the ovistore hq thing…you could try changing your browser agent

  29. 24mb of fonts? That’s an insane amount %\ Too bad for Symbian then. As far as I know, in iOS you can choose whatever input languages (so, the Unicode rendering support comes naturally) you wish and switch between’em easily. I’m almost sure Android has this too… And neither of the latter two platforms seem to be greatly degraded performance-wise by this support despite having comparable (and even inferior) hardware. I guess I’ll have to switch to a more progressive platform then. Though, i8910 is still good for watching videos. πŸ™‚


  30. Not at all, it’s Nokia and Samsung who should feel sorry about this any many other issues… You and Andy are doing your best (maybe in not so a cooperative manner, as many would like you to) to keep the sinking ship afloat.

    thanks man πŸ™‚

  31. As for huge UNICODE fonts – it does degrade power of the phone to an extent btw… I know LG Cookie is not the strong ‘player’, but if you replace LG huge all-languages-unicode font with simple one you get ~30% boost in overall speed and reactivity – my kids cookie is flying atm…

  32. To Fevves:
    Well, at least one should have an option of easy switching from “normal” fonts to the Unicode ones and back, since getting 30% performance boost without Unicode support doesn’t mean you absolutely must not use it.
    A touchscreen is a welcome feature for the apps that deal with hieroglyphic input. For example, kanji dictionaries (or any East Asian vocabulary dictionaries for that matter) and such. Those who learn the languages would appreciate the possibility greatly.
