Sbdevilmind, 11 Nov 2010Hey everyone! You all need to know something. We can use the cfw files in any firmware version... moreThe reason why it's possible with Katalyst^2 is that it only has uda and rofs2 files. Custom rofs3 which is heavily modded in cfws like revenge or aov are not used instead we use original file.
Hey everyone! You all need to know something. We can use the cfw files in any firmware versions of our phone. That means, cfw like katalyst^2 can be flashed into the older firmware too. Its not me who is saying this but the creator of katalyst^2, ishandigipunk. All we need to do is to rename the rofs2, rofs3 and uda files(i.e whichever needs to be replaced) exactly as the originals. I will try katalyst^2 in my phone (with previous firmware version) and will tell you all what happens.
Rafh26, 10 Nov 2010Intresting, im very excited man..
Pal i g0t a questi0n,
Do i need to delete sis,system,priv... moreNot necessarily. One doesn't need to hard reset or delete the system, sys, private and resources folder for a firmware upgrade or a firmware swap between CFWs. This way your phones gets updated without loosing anything. No need to backup, no need to reinstall the applications and no need to arrange them the way they were before flashing. There is only one little problem with this method, it is that the phone memory remains the same. Doing hard reset increases the phone memory by erasing everything in it. And deleting the above mentioned folders results in erasing any trace of the installed files of the applications. Hence, doing hard reset and deleting these folders makes the phone as good as new. This process is effective in removing viruses too.
So, you got yourselfs 2 options. Keep the phone as it is while enjoying the benefits of the new firmware OR make the phone look like it isn't yours at all(factory new, i mean).
Believe me, no harm in my method. I have done this many times. Besides, if you have more than 30 or 40 mb free in phone memory then no need of hard reset or deleting of folders but if the phone memory is below 20 then you have to hard reset. The choice is yours, happy flashing.

Bt i recomend u, to use wmv, high quality music and videoHey dude, i guess you still haven't touched the peak of this phone's capacity to play videos. Wmv videos are not fully compatible with this phone. Either the resolution needs to be very low or else the audio is the only thing that plays.
Formats or format extension doesn't imply quality. The latest formats are only made to reduce the size by increasing the complexity of the videos. Although this difference is not noticeable by human eye. One can even make a 3gp video file of HD quality. Be it mp4 or any other video format, the video bitrate and its resolution decides its quality. More the better. As far as i know, nokia 5233 can play all forms of .mp4, .3gp, .flv, .swf, .m4v, .rm and .rmvb videos. Other formats like .avi, .mov, .vob, .divx, .mkv etc are not supported. But once, core player 2 for symbian releases, all these will also start playing.

After bootup with Orange Tsunami as my HS, I get around 69MB of usable free RAM while all previous mods were only capable of pushing to 62MB. And my phone has never crashed or hung up on me so far. The UI is also blazingly fast and responsive. Try it mate and you'll definitely feel the difference.

Im n0t compatible on elite mod v28,coz i n0ticed the UI is a bit sl0w, and s0metimes it hangs.. Im lo0king forward in Revenge^7.. Thx pal
Rafh26, 10 Nov 2010Impressive katalyst^2
Which one is d best 8hs or 9hs?Mate download the 8HS version. 9HS version with flash HS usually has the flash bug which can crash your web browser while viewing flash based content.
For the time being use Katalyst^2. I'm using it as well used AoV mod V28 for like 5 minutes and changed it ASAP as it didn't feel anything like Revenge^6. Katalyst^2 is the only other mod which closely resembles the outlandish look and feel of Revenge^6. AoV mod, Photon, Electron^3 and the rest all look alike. The advantage with KAtalyst^2 is that it is like a base fw and nothing and comes with only the bare necessary mods. All apps can be downloaded and installed separately. So that leaves us with more flexibility and customisation options. Also new tsunami HS mods can be installed as it doesn't come preinstalled. Actually I'm starting to like Katalyst^2 more and more. Try it mate and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
this is very nice cell phone. Touch sensibility is good.. Again nokia rocckz...i am fully satisfied with this phone.
Rafh26, 10 Nov 2010So katalyst^2 is c0mpatible wit fw v.21.1.102?, or ill just w8 for d revenge^7? Yes it is. Go ahead and flash with Katalyst^2. Download 8HS version. Oratsu HS is not included in this CFW. So if you are a big fan of oratsu, download it separately. Links are given in same post.

Rafh26, 10 Nov 2010Actually yes, because the fw posted in n0kiasaga bout revenge^6 by "iwalkwithshadow"... moreBtw....you cannot use Revenge^6 anymore. Wait for Revenge^7 based on v21.1.102 or use Katalyst^2.
utk, 10 Nov 2010Are you trying to flash with v21.1.004?Well bro that's a downgrade. You are lucky that you didn't tick the 'downgrade' box. Downgrading will brick your phone and you may have to take it to nokia care for a hardware assisted flashing. So, never try to downgrade your phone. Flashing is fine as long as you do it with the same firmware or an upgraded firmware.
utk, 10 Nov 2010Are you trying to flash with v21.1.004?Actually yes, because the fw posted in n0kiasaga bout revenge^6 by "iwalkwithshadow" is v.21.1.004 is in d picture, im fr0m philippines anyway..
