My RAZR V3xx has two screens, a small one on the "outside" and a larger one inside. During normal phone usage, the outside screen shows the Cingular logo. (Or the Motorola Logo if you have a non-branded phone.)
I decided to replace the Cingular logo with one of my own, so I used P2kCommander-v4.9.9 to replace the cl.gif file in a/mobile/ with my own. (I'm currently using the picture of electronics, which makes the outer screen look like a window into the phone, but I've included a few others you might want to use instead.) Remember to back up your original cl.gif if you ever want to go back!
Other hacks for the v3xx are here and here and my review is here.
A few images you might want to use on your phone:
Some originals in case you want to change back, or just change your provider:
wow! you’re fast. time to bootup windows again. would be great he mod4lin on mac worked on v3xx
Yes, I really wish a Linux tool existed to edit files/seems on the p2k phones.
This worked great.
It there a way to get rid of some of the java apps that Cungular put on my v3xx? The delete option is not there and i would like to get some of the demos off.
Look at my Java (J2ME) fix page https://www.summet.com/blog/2007/03/19/v3xx-hacking/
After I applied the java fix the built in applications would not run, but I could also delete them.
i would like to know whats P2kCommander-v4.9.9 and how can i download it?
P2kCommander is a program, you can google for it, or go to this link, which is the first link returned by google: http://s5vi.vxxxstuff.com/commander/commander.html
thanks Jay and how do i do it to change the eternal graphic display?
You need to connect to the phone using P2kCommander, then look at the phone's filesystem. Look in the /a/mobile directory for the cl.gif file. Copy one of the above files (or one you create that is the same size) to the phone to overwrite the standard cl.gif file. Reboot your phone.
You may also need to install the correct USB drivers for your phone before p2kcommander will see it. Getting the drivers requires a Motorola developer account (free registration required), get your account here:
Once you are logged in, you can download the drivers here:
Where do I get P2kCommander-v4.9.9 ?
Try this URL:
Note that the file that you put into a/mobile MUST be name cl.gif Also – a couple of good sites for cell phone modding info specific to Motorola phones are motomodders.net and modmymoto.com.
jay my freind has the vxx just like mine only its a year old and mine is brand new.when he open wallpaper graphics and selects an animated file it plays over and over mine plays once and stop how do i get my animated files to loop if you can help i would greatly appreciate it your other tips rock thanks jeff
