I did not try to install maps in tribute when i used it. But you can try like this --Extract the rofs2 of tribute with firmware editor. Now you will have an extracted folder in the NFE folder.
Now open nokia firmware cleaner. Using it, open the above extracted folder. You can see tick marks on the built in apps in the firmware. Now only tick the app you want to delete.(maps ). Click '+ 'button and then click delete button. It will say 'done '. Now close the cleaner.
Open the firmware editor now and repack the rofs2. Flash with it. Now you will be able to install the latest version of maps in your phone.
Sbdevilmind, 28 Feb 2011Hey dude, do you know how to change the katalyst^2 startup screen. It doesn't look good at all.....Well, at boot up, we have two images
(1)splash screen (blue nokia logo)and
(2)boot screen (hand shake )
We can change them within the phone so that no flashing is required for each time we change it.
You can change your boot screen using a sis applicaton. The name of the app is 'gif booting by oreo27 and crazygen final.sis'.Using that app,any gif files can be used as a boot screen. You can even use any jpg wallpaper by renaming it as 'startup.gif'.put it in c:/boot/
(go to daily mobile topic=15613.15).Worked fine in my phone.
You can restore default boot screen (nokia hand shake )using another sis app . (daily mobile topic=24686.0). Worked for me.
You can change shutdown image using a patch in rom patcher. Google 'symbian freak -change shut down splash screen '

Shane, 28 Feb 2011Well im not sure! its a tough call, im really gonna miss c6,thre was the new photos, that too ... moreWell mate let's just hope that Nokia will be generous enough to incorporate some of the C6 elements to 5233 in the next update. And btw Nokia maps 3.04 works just fine on Katalyst^2.
I purchase this phone 5 days ago. it's video quality is amazing. but exception of some videos(those which previously storage in this phone like 'yuvraaj' or 'dabaang'song is really awesome) whatever I download from zedge.net or mobile9-that videos are just average quality when it's playing in 5233. i'm not satisfied with this type of average quality videos. so my question is to all of u guys-FROM WHERE I FIND GOOD QUALITY VIDEOS(CRYSTAL CLEAR)? please help me a.s.a.p.
Sbdevilmind, 28 Feb 2011Hey dude, do you know how to change the katalyst^2 startup screen. It doesn't look good at all.....Hi mate I haven't actually done it but here is a guide I've dug up from dailymobile.se. It's quite simple. All we need to do is use Nokia fw editor to open the rofs2 file and replace the startup screen with custom one. The startup screen is splashscreen.mif in resource/apps and shutdown is sysap.mif. You will need a jpeg to mif converter to get the job done.
SidewindeR, 27 Feb 2011Well I'm on the same boat as you mate. Nothing beats ofw in terms of performance and when it c... moreWell im not sure! its a tough call, im really gonna miss c6,thre was the new photos, that too at the cost of ram, the widgetized homescreen,which will be sorely missed, the file structure in photos,music and ringtone chooser,and pretty much the whole fw, what are the odds?I'm more of a guy inclined to eye candy yet performance remains a prority at par.(is the ovi maps apps working in katalyst, coz it aint working in my tribute,even though it installs never shows up in phone)
Sbdevilmind, 28 Feb 2011Good info. But give a bit more description to how to use that soft.Open u tube and search for hiisi proxy. 2nd search result of u tube of 10:35 minutes. Check this video. All will be clear.
