Hi,

I was modding my G705 las night to add walkman functions. Using W715 firmware /boot/phone_app.cxc, I enabled both GPS, shake control and SensMe and visualization. However, I cannot get the equalizer working properly.

I do not want to flash the whole phone to W715, as I do need chinese support, and I don't think W715 support this.

Is there anyone who can help me on this?

Also, I tried flashing my W705 the same way. It seems that there IS a GPS module in W705, however, I cannot pick up any signals. It seems that just disable the circuit instead of removing the module. I am sure someone has the ability to re-enable it?

Hum how diid you manage to boot the phone ?
'Cause when you overwrite the /boot/phone_app.cxc with the one from another phone, it just wont start.

Well, mine doesn't start if I change the phone_app.cxc

My mistake of not making it clear. The files I copied over were:

phone_acc.cxc
phone_app.cxc
phone_emp_app.cxc

You need to extract the W715 file system, in it there will be layout files for the walkman & equalizer copy them to your G705 , you will get the complete working walkman3 then with the walkman logo aswell.

It works fine for me. I am using the R1DA034 firmware on all of my devices, if that helps.

I can't get it to work !
That's weird
Did you just copy these files with A2uploader overwriting the existing ones?
Did you change something in an xml file in the FS ?
Or did you just flash the main without th FS ?

I'm looking to flash my G705 into a W715 while keeping Chinese support here too, could you give some more details on it? I found an extracted version of the W715 FS, but it doesn't include the boot files.

You can find the boot files in the main firmware not the FS, then you can extract them from the .mbn with read3150.exe

Thanks for the help, but same as you, I couldn't boot the phone here too, guess it might be firmware mismatch.

So is there a way to get Traditional Chinese working on W715? I'm using W705 Hong Kong firmware on my G705 and the battery lasts for only 2 days. I suspect the GPS is on. Plus W715 has GPS which can come in handy.
