Thx for all ur advice and explanation... appreciate vry much... I'll start trying to install s/w... :)
ur fone has 2 partitions. one is of 300 mb out of 8 gb and rest are for common use. the 300 mb drive takes the fw 114 and the "exe/ini" files of the installed softwares. when u see from the itune u can see that the memory showing is about 7.27 gb. yes, ur songs, photos, vdos are saved in larger drive of 7.27 gb.
if u r confident in using ur fone, u can install boss tool and use it to relocate ur fonts from small memory to large memory. this will give u more than 100 mb of free space in the 300 mb drive. but be careful, this is likely to make fone unstable at times.
some of the nice softwares will require "bsd subsystem". if u r desperate, u have to install bsd ss. otherwise, for few installations install "fake bsd subsystem". this will allow u to install software like "boss tool" (needed to see the memory left). good and required software that u will need are:
wedict including wordnet, britanica
i havent installed bsd ss. once u install it u cannot delete it.
yes, i'm using ziphone v3. but i abit confuse on 300MB? my iphone is 8GB (actually oni 7.3GB), nw available 6.8GB... I forgot hw much songs I've put in... but probably won't used up 500MB... so maybe is ziphone v3 install extra some app..
btw, the chinese s/w is for me to type chinese in SMS... btw, b4 i upgrade the 1.1.4, originally this phone come with NativeCn 3.10a which suppose to support by 1.1.4, but I'm nt sure why after the technician unlock my phone (last time), the NativeCn icon is gone... remain only in uninstall list. juz nw using ziphone to "do it all", now its totally removed... =.=" ...
btw, hw to install an application into iphone? through itune, drag & drop to iphone list??
most of the softwares are free. to get the softwares, u need to install the sources. install all the sources whatever u get from installer of ste packaging. besides, install all sources. proceed as follows:
go to installer, press "sources", press "edit", press "add". write "ride4.org/shai.xml" then press ok. it will take some time. once done, browse the installer. there u will find a lot of softwares, find "sources" and install "all sources" . it will install about 107 sources. have patience.
once done, browse "all packages", choose ur one and install. u should delete some of the sources those r of other languages. this will reduce ur subsequent refresh time.
will come back with more suggestions
Oh by the way, I hv include my email add, juz in case if using email is better than post out here... :)
Thx 4 ur support all the times... :) ... its ok d... coz juz nw i really panic... juz when i plan to call the technician, i suddenly remember there is one post mention on how to reset the iphone... so i juz try it out... and it works! so i juz click "do it all" again in ziphone and this time vry smooth...
did u use ziphone v3? it's fine. u could also use ziphone 2.6b. v3 takes a lot of space from ur 300 mb memory. once u do it u r left with about 39 mb of space. bcuz v3 installs bsd subsystem, openn ssh and installer; but v 2.6b installs only installer and u find 54 mb of space.
do not install too many softwares, some of the software will hang ur fone, like "one touch".
In one of ur prev post, u hv list down a lot of apps add extra functions eg: iSMS, iRingtone..etc
Can you share to me where can you get those s/w? is it freeware of shareware?
why do u need to send to technician???
i posted before that this fone has a very strong heart, generally, it will not die.
what exact problem u r facing now??
It's ok already, I just remember, the phone can be reset by pressing the Home button and ON/OFF button togather... after reset, I click "do it all" again and nw ok d... :)
Just now really scared i need to burn some $$ juz to send bac to technician.
I really need your help this time. After click "Do it all", ziphone start running a lot of coding, but the process was taking more than 10min, and there is an advice said if more than 10min please click stop process, and do it again... but when I click stop process and want to try do it again, my iphone screen show "I0IpodUSBDevice::startIpodStack can't start! Need configuration"... now ziphone or itune both cannot detect my iphone d... izit means the iphone os being erase, but hvn't install back?? what can I do now?
the prople below
please cool down. this forum gives us a great opportunity to discuss about the iphone and also the modern technology. exchange of undesirable words must be discouraged. we all are gentlemen here.
People on this thread hadn't change much. Lets all wait for the 3G version of this über gadget and it will going to be the bomb!
this phone took me to the Next Level with the Touchscreen.
and the MAC OSX , Thats Great to
otherwise its a sligh waste of £300
to each and every one that says that iphone is no good i'm saying that they are t ones who are no good bec. they dont understand anything concerning technology.
I love the touch UI of the iphone. It's probably the best one out there, but unfortunately it falls short on features, and you have no liberty at all for 3rd party applications for Apple can't seem to let go of their products even after you've already bought it from them =) Still, it has an awesome touch interface that I hope other phone makers could match. I will not buy the iphone even if I like it a lot.
Iphone made very nice materials and nice phone..But, after i saw Nokia N96, it will come soon, so i stop there, and maybe i go with N96..Because with iphone i cant use mms, video, regular GPS, copy/past, and more more..Im using 1.1.4 version and there is nothing special in the iphone at this time..Maybe soon will be # 1 phone, but as of today i would say # 1 is Nokia N95 and soon N96....
