Ringtones and Wallpapers via USB CABLE
Software Needed: Mobile Phone Tools 2.16 + Software will detect the Phone on Com 3 or 4 (try them all to see which works) This software is pretty straight forward and you can easily access the phone and go through Multimedia Studio Option and it is basically just click and drag to the Audio or Picture Folder.

Games via USB CABLE
Software Needed: PST 6.7 Midway 2.8 JAD Generator There are 2 steps needed for this. 1) Enable JAVA APP LOADER in the Java menu (PST 6.7) 2) Midway to upload the game to phone

PST 6.7 (used to enable Java APP loader menu) 1. download PST 6.7+ and load up the program with the phone already plugged in via USB cable. 2. Select NEW, then KJava Files 3. Click READ FROMPHONE (picture of a arrow POINTING AWAY from the phone) 4. Now that box should have the"Enable/Disable Java APP menu", CLICK ENABLE!! 5. It should bring up a message stating it will be putting it into suspend mode, and then say "Changing JAVA APP MENU ITEM"

Finished, now check YOUR PHONE, in SETTINGS > JAVA SETTINGS and see if you now have the JAVA APP LOADER in your Java menu. IF SO PROCEED TO NEXT STEP! MIDWAY 2.8(used to upload games) 1. Go to the NEW Java App Loader in your java menu and select it, It should SAY "INSERT DATA CABLE"

What a .JAD file is basically a URL file to tell where the game is located. You can open any .JAD file with NOTEPAD to edit. MY SUGGESTION is to get a program called JAD GENERATOR)

Uploading Ringtones And Wallpapers VIA BLUETOOTH

This guide should work for any Motorola Vxxx series phone such as V300, V400, V525, V600, etc. You will need a data cable for this, preferably USB but serial should work. You cannot use bluetooth on a V600 to do this, you do need the data cable.

Software you'll need
• • • A hex editor, such as freeware HHD Hex Editor: P2KMan software for accessing the files on your phone: If you want a manual for P2KMan, here it is: (P2KMan's normal help files are in Russian so they won't be of use.)

Do not connect the data cable yet. Install HHD Hex Editor first; it's easy to install. Next, install P2KMan. It doesn't have an installer so you'll need to extract the zip file to somewhere, such as in it's own folder in My Documents. Now connect the data cable to your phone and then to your computer. It should install drivers and come up with the "Found New Hardware Wizard" for some of them. If the wizard doesn't come up, you will need to go to where P2KMan was unzipped and run the P2KMan executable. It will then start the wizard. Ignore any errors P2KMan might give you at this point, and close P2KMan. When it does come up with the wizard, choose "Install from a list or specific location" and click Next. Then make sure "Include this location in the search" is checked and click the Browse button. Navigate to the folder where P2KMan is and select the "drv" folder there. That's where the needed drivers are. It will probably come up quite a few times with the Found New Hardware Wizard; if so, just repeat the process to point it to the correct drivers.

Modifying the file
Ok, now you should be able to run P2KMan, so browse to it's location and run the executable for it again. A long list of files should come up in the list to the upper left in the P2KMan window. This is the list of every file on the phone. Now then, to download the file from the phone which needs to be edited. Click the "File" column header at the top of the file list twice to have it sort the files. There should then be a triangle pointing upwards on the "File" column header to indicate

the files are sorted in ascending alphabetical order. If the triangle is pointing down, just click it again. The file you are looking for is "/a/gain_table.bin" which should be about 4-5 pages down with the files sorted the way they are. Once you've found it in the list, click it to select it. Then click the "Phone >>> PC" button which is to the bottom left. It should then pop up a "Save As" window. Go ahead and save the file anywhere you want. Next, to be on the safe side, make a backup copy of the "gain_table.bin" file. Always a good idea. Really, back it up before modifying it in case something goes wrong. Ok, now run the hex editor and open the "gain_table.bin" file with it. In the split window, you only will be modifying data in the left side (which looks like "00 00 00 ff ff"). The right side with "...yyyy" and such is to be left alone. Read the last part of this document for where in the file to edit for all the different volumes; I'll stick with just the earpiece volume here. Try clicking on something in the left side. It should highlight in black and blink. Now look to the very bottom center of the hex editor window. It should say something like "Offset: 00000008 of 000003e8" which tells you the Offset of that place in the file. For the above example the offset would be 08. Now then, find the hex Offset location 0D. It should be the third column over from the right side at the very top, and should be "01" by default. That's the earpiece volume level, which can range from 1-8 and is 1 by default. Change that value to "06" or so. Just select the "1" and type "6" in. The 6 will show up red to indicate you've changed it. Now save the file using File->Save in the top menu. You're done there, now close the hex editor. If P2KMan is no longer running, start it back up. Now in P2KMan look to the bottom where it says "Uploading path:" and click in the box. Type in "/a/" (without the quotes of course) for the upload path. Be sure to do this correctly or it won't work. With the upload path now set to /a/, click the "PC >>> Phone" button. In the Open window that pops up, navigate to your now modified gain_table.bin file and choose it. Now in the main P2Kman window if you look to the text box on the right you should see "File upload... /a/gain_table.bin ok" in the text there indicating the file was loaded back to your phone. Almost done. Now, close P2KMan, unplug the data cable, and do a complete power down and restart of your phone. This of course is done by holding the red End key in for a couple of seconds, which is also how you power the phone back up. This has to be done to refresh the file, and the change won’t take effect until a power cycle has been done.

That's it! Call somebody to test it out and enjoy the new volume!
Offset locations in gain_table.bin for various volumes: Earpiece- 0D Inner key volume- 19 In-Call Speakerphone- 31 Ringtone/Video volume- 49 Soft keys volume- 4E Each of these volume settings can vary between 1-8. Do not use a value outside that range.

Change Startup and Powerdown Image and Sounds

Change Startup and Powerdown Image and Sounds Use Motokit to change the Startup and Powerdown image and sounds. Run Motokit and select Startup & Powerdown Style from the Mobile menu. It will take a few seconds to read from the phone:

Select StartupGif and PowerdownGIF boxes and locate the files on your computer by clicking the ... boxes. Do the same for Startup and Powerdown Tone if you want to change those as well. In the example below they are left as the default. Select OK and restart your phone.
