Ok guys. Here is a summary about the master reset problem.
If we do master reset after modding, we cant turn on the ph.
Yes. Its true. Because, the modded files we put inside the fs are not read only. So it get deleted while master reset. Lack of system files leads to dead ph. If you concentrate on the file attribute, then the problem will never arise.
Flashing with wotanserver is only the easiest and good way.

If you don't use your cedar in maximum then better sell it. Cedar is made for heavy usage,not being just a standby phone. And about the camera: when you're in a place with weak light then the video recording will be somewhat lag and shaky. Cedar's camera is best in daytime. Try modding. We have what we call "camera driver". And about the loudspeaker, personally I don't listen to music using just the loudspeaker, I prefer using headsets. All I can advice is to modify your cedar.

Hi Chuck. You can increase the volume in two ways.
1. Remove the black tape at the back of the phone under the battery, its rectangular in shape and is right under the MicroSD Slot before the screw.
2. You can try Modding. You can search a lot of useful post here to help you mod your phone.
I hope this Helped.
Hello Everybody! i have a Cedar and how do you increase the speakerphone volume. i know its the volume control is on the side, but even at max the volume is feeble. Any other way. SE says its loud enough and i am not hard of hearing. Plz help asap.
I bought a SE Cedar Black Red some weeks back and have using it for the last 3 weeks. Solid phone and good feel, although being a Moto and Nokia fan found the cedars controls somewhat ackward and complicated. This is my daily use phone it is solid and i quite like it. can anyone pls enlighten me on (a ) The battery is fresh in this new phone, but drains out on standby in just aday. I seldom use the phone and its mostly on standby, and I dont use 3G or other resource draining features.(B) The camers is good but on video mode there is excessive flaring/shake which means one can only pan the camera very slowly. takes away from crisp videos. Gents pls help. Can the battery last longer and how to eliminate shake/ flaring in video mode.
