How to seem editUse XVI32 to edit your seems and P2K Phone File Manager to transfer them between the computer and phone. Once you decide to modify your phone I suggest the following steps in this order:
Flash the phone. Download new seems from the new flash, and do new seem edits, one by one on the new seem. Do not simply upload edited seems from an older flash. Different flashes will react differently with different seem edits. Upload edited seems. Delete unwanted files. Upload pictures, mp3s and your phonebook. Use MPT to do this. I'm a Macintosh user, so I just Bluetooth all this in.
Restart your phone and check if there are any problems after you get done deleting files, especially with the ring tone styles. Make sure that you can go into "Loud Detail" without getting sent back to the main menu instead. Get there by pressing the key, go to "Settings" press "SELECT", scroll down to "Audio" and press "SELECT", scroll to "Loud Detail" and press "Change".
First I'll cover how to edit a seem. Then I'll list the seems that I modified in my phone. There are many more things to edit out there than what I'll cover here. If you want more, then check out the link toward the bottom of these instructions on this page. It's a Word document and it's 21 pages long!
Seems control the basic function of the flex by activating and deactivating features on the phone. Seem "0032_0001" is used as an example. It is also one of the most important seems you'll come across. Launch P2K Phone File Manager. To download seem "0032_0001" from your phone, type in the first four digits of the seem, in this case "0032" in the "Seem" area "From" and "to" box as shown. Then click the "Download seem" button.
A "Save As" window pops up. Leave the value "xxxx_yyyy.seem" in the "File
name:" box as is and click the "Save" button.
Start XVI32. Click on "Tools", and click on "Options".
Then click on the "Data Inspector" tab. Make sure the "big-endian (Motorola)" radio button is checked.
Now that that's done, open the seem "0032_0001" that you just saved. In this screen shot, look at the value in the white panel that's highlighted. In this case the number "30" is seen in blue. This is the actual offset location that must be edited. So, the value "30" is currently stored in offset "1D". How do we know that this is offset "1D"? Notice at the bottom of the screen it says "Adr. hex: 1D". This will change based on what offset square you are highlighting. Move to the left and the offset address decreases, move to the right and it increases in number. To navigate around to other offsets either click with your mouse or use your arrow keys.
Go to the tool bar menu. Click "Tools" and then "Bit manipulation...".
The "Bit manipulation" window pops up. Each value from "0" to "7" is called a bit. Depending on the seem you are editing, you will either check or uncheck the corresponding box next to the bit. After that, click the "Set" button and save the edited seem "0032_0001". If you get seem editing instructions like: "004a_0001 > offset 22 [Set 01]" somewhere outside of this guide, then all you have to do is find the offset "22" and then manually type "01" in its two-digit box. You do not go into the bit manipulator to do this.
Verify everything you do.
Now upload the saved seem "0032_0001" using P2K Phone File Manager. Go to the "Seem" area. This time use the lower two boxes where it says "Upload seem". Type in "0032" in the "Seem" box and "0001" in the "rec" box as shown. Then click the "Upload seem" button.
In the "Open" window choose the seem "0032_0001" and click the "Open" button.
You will see "uploading seem N 0032record N 0001 ok." In the "Phone control" area click "Restart phone" and you're done.
For the master list of all discovered seems and what they control, you can download this Word document. This list is maintained at http://xlr8.us/hofo/. Just so you aren't wasting your time, if you discover something you want to change with a seem edit, see if you can change it through the various menus on the phone first. There are seem edits in this list (like changing your phone's Bluetooth name) which can be done with a lot less hassle by just going to the Bluetooth menu directly on the phone.
I learned how to seem edit years ago from MotoX at this tutorial he wrote.
This ends the "seem edit" section of this tutorial.
