Anonymous How can I disable start-up music and shutdown music? 1 Jun 8 2007, 1:14 PM EDT by Mystik
Thread started: May 21 2007, 2:26 PM EDT  Watch
I have a Cingular 3125. About 6 months ago I was futzing around with some .xml files like home.xml and found a parameter where I was able to disable the start-up/shutdown music. I get up early in the morning abd my wife appreciated not having my phone wake her up in the morning! Last week I installed the updated phone firmware, which has reset the startup music and now I can't seem to find the correct .xml file to disable the music again (I can't seem to remember which file it was that I found it in last time). Can someone please tell me where this parameter is? Is it hidden now in the updated firmware?

Mystik External display screen date in wrong format? 0 Jun 1 2007, 1:44 AM EDT by Mystik

you can change the display format of the date on the external screen... all you need is a registry editor. the key is HKLM\nls\overrides\SSDte and you should be able to change it freely... it should actively update, else, a soft reset may be in order.
