Expand SMS Memory

1. Browse to the folder /ifs/settings/messaging/ with FAR Manager

6. Now restart your Phone and be happy

Set ring volume as player volume

Copy file farfield_play.apf to any folder of PC, rename it to farfield_ring.apf and copy back. So file farfield_ring.apf in phone is replaced by file with settings of farfield_play.apf. Now we have 2 same files but different names.

Killing camera sound

Go to FS/tpa/preset/system/sound and delete file camerashutter.3gp and for killing autofocus sound delete file camerafocus.3gp.

Killing MobilePrint

Go to FS/tpa/preset/system/ams and delete MOBILEPRINT.jad and MOBILEPRINT.jar and have additional 361kb free memory. Unnecessary standard games & midlets are in FS/tpa/preset/default/java and to be deleted if you wish. In FS/tpa/preset/wizard you can delete 5 biggest by size GIF files.

Change sms sounds

FS/tpa/preset/system/sound delete message alert and put new one but with same name (messagealert1, messagealert2....)

Get rid of discharge battery sound

Go to FStpapresetsystemsoundlowbattery.mid and replace it the same name file with zero size.

Shutdown Sound

Navigate to /fs/tpa/preset/system/settings
Place any mp3 in there and rename to SHUTDOWN_SOUND_SEMC.mp3 and it will play it when you shut down the phone.

Change video recording quality

Go here using FAR. FS/ifs/settings/camera

Get Rid of Hissing in Music Playback (Thanks to aksd)

With the FAR plugin replace these files located at: ifs/settings/acoustic
with: Nohissing

Backup your jar files

Go to tpa/perset/system/ams/And copy the files in there to your computer.

Removing the SE Links in folders

Go here tpapresetsystemcustmenu, and tpapresetcustom
Removing all the files from the custmenu folder, and all the .itm files from the second custom folder success****y removed the content hooks, as well as resetting my Play Now icon to the default SE one.
itm's are tar files with images and xml files inside. The itm sits in presetcustom and get's unpacked to presetsystemcustmenu on master reset. So DESKTOP_HOOK_1.itm contents get unpacked to presetsystemcustmenuDESKTOP_HOOK_1 when the phone is reset.

Increasing the size of the mms that you can send

edit this.
change to.

To backup & restore contact voice comands

(Voice comands still need to be manually enabled after master reset, but this is no great problem - just a reminder!)

To backup & restore contact image associations

(Theseare not the actual images, just links to the files, so make sure you don't change the location of the files between resets!)

Change the delivery report sound

Create a midi file named notification.mid and copy it into FS/tpa/preset/system/sound
