Guys... finally I seem to have found a way to get rid of that annoying gallery issue. The current issue with the phone gallery is that it tends to search and display all the pics and videos from all the folders irresepctive of the path of the folder or whether it is a system file or not.
This can be a bit irritating when we dont want some files to be displayed in the main gallery but still it gets displayed and there ain't much you can do about it. I know that boys will be boys myself included and we all do have our little secrets that we don't want others to know about.
So back to my point. Almost all cfw come with file browser app preinstalled. All we have to do is goto file manager and create a folder lets say E:\Others\Personal Files. Now copy all your files to this folder and then open the file browser app. Under that goto the personal files folder and under file options select set attributes. Now under set attributes, turn the hidden files and system files option to 'on'. Now just save it and exit from the app.
Now you can do the same thing with automatically created folders like Images and Videos. It won't be displayed on the file manager but wont work with gallery as by default the gallery will scan these automatically generated folders whether it is set to hidden or system files. It doesn't matter. So just be careful with where you set your folder for this to actually work. The most notable thing here is that even if you connect your phone in mass storage mode to your PC, the folders wont be displayed as the folders are treated as system folders and will always remain hidden.
To access your files later on, just open the file browser app and you can directly open the folders without any hassles of any sort. And mind you that's the only way by which you can access these files. Or else you require a file browser similar to the preinstalled one like X-plore.

can anyone tell me about the efficiency of the touchscreen of nokia 5233
SidewindeR, 30 Oct 2010Oh thanks a lot mate for your valuable inputs... So I guess it's better to stick with SHE9800 ... moreI don't know the name of the shop. It's in "GCDA Shopping Complex"(Marine Drive, Menaka). Tell him to look for a shop facing the "Musical walkway".
Do check out other shops in that complex and also in "Penta Menaka" opposite to GCDA complex. Prices will vary form shop to shop and you may get a better deal elsewhere. Do keep in mind that the 1600 quoted was an year ago. So maybe it could be cheaper or even costlier as the shops are relatively small and they don't follow any permanent pricing pattern. Ohh and don't forget to bargain a bit. He said 1600 without bargaining. So some bargaining may reduce it further.
Looking at the way these guys are selling headphones for 2/3 of it's MRP(~1000 for 9700 and ~1600 for 9800) you might be able to get the 9850(provided it's available) for less than 3500. So if you can stretch it to that level then it's anyday better than going for another 9800.

Anonymous, 30 Oct 2010utk,sb,side, i am in kerala trivandrum(student university college, B.Sc chem).want to flash 52... moreMate.. I'd like to help you out. I live in Kollam btw and I'm an M.Sc stud doin Zoology as my main subject in Fatima Mata National College... Ok my point is it is not that hard to do so. We are all here to help you out in any way we can. If you insist on flashing your phone with custom fw (bear in mind that there is a always a bit of risk involved)then we can help you out by guiding you through the steps involved.
Assuming that you own a pc, this should be a piece of cake for a grad stud like you. You just need to download a few files and you're ready to go. So if you still want to proceed, just let us know. We'll be guide you through the steps.

So I guess it's better to stick with SHE9800 for the time being given my constrained budget right mate? Sound stage is very important for me now atleast after listening to my 9800 for a while. I just can't seem to get that refinement with any other earphones. 9700 is also a good earphone with better noise isolation than 9800 but the lack of sound stage is the only thing that I don't like about it. And btw 1600 is so damn cheap already. It would be a great help if you could give me the address of the shop from where it is available at that price. I have a friend living in palarivattom, so I can get it from the shop directly the next time I visit Ekm. Thanks once again mate..

Make sure you download firmware version V21.1.004 with navifirm and not the latest. Follow the steps given by "iwalkwithshadow". I suggest you first flash your phone with original firmware to get the hang of things before going for a CFW.
