..for tips about missing characters, and (excellent) screenies with other fonts installed.Step 3. Copy the files over to the memory stick again.
This will have to be done with a card- reader or an USB cable,
since we need to unmount the mem- stick to have write access on the
system- files. So - copy fonts to:
And icons to the appropriate folder, such as ZSBLIB. Presumably it's case- sensitive for the most part.Step 4. Reboot.
And pray it works. If it doesn't, and you're on a w950 or w960,
which have to boot before you can access the mem- stick - and where
there's apparently no way to disconnect the mem- stick.. - then you're
screwed. And there's no way to fix it. The software- update won't reset
the mem- stick, and you need to boot before formatting the stick.
..There have not been reported any problems by switching out icons,
though. Typically you'd just get icons that look wrong. But the fonts
apparently may be a problem because of memory- limitations, at least on
update: the solution to w950/w960 problems with this was simple -
the hack, then use the c- drive folders instead (i.e.,
c:resourcefonts). Since the c- drive will be wiped on a re- flash.

If you're on any of the other phones, just take out the mem- stick,
reboot, insert the mem- stick again, and plug in the USB cable - then
check spelling, fonts, sizes etc, or delete the files that cause the

13. What's SEUS, and why don't I have the latest firmware?

But is the firmware update available for everyone? I'm with O2 and tried updating and it says I have the latest FW.
Currently I'm on R9J005 which I know is not the latest...
SEUS, or Sony Ericsson Update Service, is Sony Ericsson's update
service for all their phone- models, which can update your "firmware"
over the intertubes. "Firmware" is a leftover term from back in the..
long- long ago when all software was specially fitted by the
manufacturer through some arcane, hidden process, with special cables
and equipment, in order to protect the information on the device, and
ensure noone would mess with it.
So to upgrade your firmware, you need to go to SE's support- pages
and download the installation file for SEUS (or launch it from the cd.
It's self- updating, so barring any trouble with the flash- component,
or with the pc- drivers, you should be able to follow the on- screen
instructions. If you have trouble with the flash- component, you need
to install the native, Internet explorer upgrade for flash available at
"But," I hear you say, "how do I know which is the last version,
and when there's a new one out"? The answer is, you don't. SE has no
changelog, and no official notification whenever there's a new
firmware. "But," I hear you say again, "that means I have to log on
periodically to check, and that I have to do it on a windows- machine,
which needs to be updated in all kinds of ways, just to tell whether
there's a new firmware! And I don't even know if they know about the
hangs I keep having!". And that's entirely true.
Furthermore, the latest firmware version is dependent on region.
WG1, or "world generic one", is the reference version, and will be
available first. The other versions for the various regions typically
come out a few weeks afterwards.
After all that, we have the branded firmwares (which was the point
of the entire rant, my apologies), which may or may not be launched
with the latest version. For example, O2 is one of the few telephone-
companies to have adopted the p1, and it's apparently up to them
whether they would want to maintain the firmware- updates, and whether
it's even worth the trouble.
So far, they've been several firmwares behind (so call your operator about any trouble <- this is important
14. What sort of wifi- speeds should I expect?This paper
goes through the possible speeds in ideal conditions on a wifi g- modem
(with theoretical speeds up to 54Mbit/s) on a few phones.
The p1i has a wifi b compliant modem, and can theoretically go to
11Mbit. But apparently the modem is set to stop at 5Mbit, which means
the practical throughput will be around 2.5 Mbit, or 320kb/s. In
practice, because of processor- speed, programming solutions, bugs,
external setup, general radio noise, and so on - it seems it's
reasonable to expect peaks towards those speeds, in very good
conditions. But mostly the average will stay lower, and reach about
200Kb/s at best.
15. Allright, so how do I set up this wifi- thing, then?
1. Open the wlan panel (shortcut from statusbar->connections->wifi, or create a shortcut to the wifi- app).
2. Search for wlans.
3. Swear because the Access- point(AP) is invisible, and move
closer to the antenna. If you know the Service- set identifier (SSID)
of the wlan, and it's hidden on purpose - create a new connection, and
fill in the details manually. Add the account to a group.
4. Or just click connect. Enter passphrase.
If you add the account manually, you'll be asked to add the account
to a "group". You need to do this, since all UIQ apps requesting data
will connect throught the "group- account" system. Typically, unless
there's an option to choose otherwise, the apps connect through the
"preferred group", which you can assign in - more->internet accounts
- on most screens dealing with connections. By default, it's called
"internet", and should contain the standard gprs account. Any new
accounts connected to with the wifi wizard (i.e., connect, enter
passphrase) will be added to the top of the preferred group
automatically. (update: If you add it manually, the account will end up
at the bottom of the group *shrug*)
So, to run through the list of available lans, before using gprs,
add the accounts to the preferred group, and place the gprs account
towards the bottom.
If you connect to the wlan just fine, but don't add the account to
a group the internet- browser will use (i.e., the preferred group),
nothing will happen.
Also be aware that due to a bug that won't be fixed, java-
applications still can only use the first account on the preferred
group. So using opera mini on the wlan can be a bit of a pain. But:http://www.esato.com/board/printpost.php?post=2107000
Go to your 'Internet' group and remove any other account except default wifi account + home wlan account.
Create another group and name it 'Internet GPRS' and put only your GRPS account in that one.
Then enable 'show connection dialog', so that you get a prompt
which group to use when you try to use an app which uses internet
connection (e-mail, fring, opera (mini), etc.).
(Be advised that the scheduler for checking e-mail will stop at the
connection- dialogue, stupidly asking for which connection to use, when
that option is enabled).
When WLAN/WIFI doesn't work, several things could be the problem.
1. The AP is old and weary, and struggles with using RTS/CTS,
power- saving and so on properly. Try disabling power- saving on the
phone ->internet accounts-> [wifi- account]
2. The radio- noise is very intense around your AP, and you have
several hidden nodes (read: bastard neighbors on the same or close
channels who think setting their beacon interval at 20ms will net them
more kills on battlefield2). Decrease the RTS (request to send) limit
(and in theory increasing the chance of a frame coming across
uninterrupted, with less overhead because of less resent frames
(..frame: package of fragmented info between the device and the AP)).
Or - change channel, and disable RTS/CTS altogether (because
introducing an rts/cts session may severely impact some half- way
implemented modems and driver- modules on other units on the network).
Either of those may or may not solve the problem (yes, I know, really
3. You require a certificate for authentication that cannot be
automatically verified or downloaded to the phone (i.e., a private or
custom certificate of some sort). Contact your support- department and
have them send you an issuing- certificate you can install on the phone
manually before trying again.
4. You need to log on to a domain on the local lan to be authenticated. Type "username@domain" in the username box.
5. Your network- admin loves Winmo, and says "it should work, you know!". I'm sorry, you're out of luck.
16. The p1 doesn't support that 802.1X stuff that Apple invented last November, right?http://www.esato.com/board/viewtopic.php?topic=165592
802.1x and so on is a specification that includes receiving encryption keys from a secondary server.
And then uses the authentication service on that secondary server
to validate you - on the primary server. Which means that any device
that supports one instance of this type of connection- scheme - by
definition supports "802.1X". Which is a generic connection scheme
(..and was not invented by Apple).
The UIQ units with wlan support several of those connection-
schemes, unlike certain other phones we don't mention. That may support
perhaps the most common one, with future updates.
17. How much software is there for UIQ, anyway?
And is the selection really as bad as some say?
