    I think thats just you... these work the exact same way as the ones that come with XS++

    PLUS, if what you're saying is true (messing up your GDFS) you would not be able to fix it by just simply reflashing

    curious...RLP06,

    i knew about this way before, however, the method i use with my w810i...u CANNOT use the custpack setting in XS++..i had to extract the custpack and copy it onto the phone with FAR..

    is it possible to do everything with just XS++ now?

    Yes it is. XS has much improved.

    I think he made this thread using a w810

    Well worth a shot =S, I was showing my debranded phone to my korean friend, and he really wanted korean language cuz the songs were shown as boxes lmao.

    Is Korean cellular providers mostly CDMA?

    ahaha, yah, it was done with a w810


    well, the reason why i was asking is it is way easier like this, and its also possible to get the real american generic on it (as i think it is impossible to download it as a separate file)

    what i did was i found a modded europe made to work with american phones and meant to be flashed with se tools or far



    When i tried with JUST XS++ around feb15 2008, i did everything in this guide (as i mentioned, i was already fully familiar with the method). it flashed the main good, then it moved onto the fs, and flashed that good (when i tried back in 2007, XS++ wouldnt even flash fs...so this was a big improvement)..then when it went onto the custpack, it wouldnt finish, even after 20 minutes (starting from when it starts to flash custpack)

    phone was a cid49, and i know its capable of being flashed, as it was debranded already, and i was just trying to repair WSOD

    i didnt have any custpacks in any folders, i was under the impression that the program has it all built in.

    so since that day, i went back with the regular method, of flash break-in main + FS, then open up FAR, copy over custpack (and audio driver and cam..then flash regular main, bootup, go through all the startup stuff (please wait..etc..)..then when its working, turn off, flash patches with se tools.



    but the catch with the method i used was i cannot get my hands on the american FS...i only had that modded europe one. so that was why i tried using the built in one with XS++ which lead me to a brick.


    awaiting a reply before i put faith into this method again..however, its not really needed at the moment, because the phone works good.

    I think it might have just been an anomaly that it bricked, XS++ does have custpacks built in, though you can build your own custpacks through changing the XML and files of custpacks of similar phones....

    I created a K810 HK pack from changing K810 APAC pack with some settings from a K800 HK pack... theres not that much code in the XML, and most of it relates to carrier settings anyways, the key things are the languages and the hooks (region specific icons)
