8. Now, you will see the window divided into two halves. The left side is your phone’s and at the right side is your hard disks.
9. On the left side, you will see two options, to get into your phone. FLASH, FS.
10. Flash, deals with patching, unpatching and reloading the the firmware after customizing FS.
11. FS deals with ur File System. Knowing the roots, you can mod the drivers and stuff.
12. After all, its very important to shutdown the loader. For this keep on clickin the ‘…’ in the top left hand side window of FAR. This will take you back to the prev screens and finally confirmation to shutdown will be asked. Click Yes.

Use this patch:

(You must be familiar to how to use patch files.)

Obviously we need an antenna for reciever.
so we are going to use any small metal part to act as antenna like aluminium chocolate foil, bike key, jump clip, a wire bit at the second pin from left of our data interface
(The place were we connect our charger/headset, there will be totally 12 pins and the 3nd corresponds to the FM antenna)
Place it such that it is not disturbed and then your phone will play FM without headset!!

Change images and sounds at startup and shutdown of your SE phone.!

Start up/shutdown image/sound change
The images must be in 176 X220 resolution,the file name must be like this
Boot image: SPLASH

And you must know to use FAR and XS to do this changes.
Startup and shutdown images and sounds are located in various locations. To change, simply delete the existing file, and copy in your file with the same name.

Here are the various names, file sizes, formats and locations:
Boot image: SPLASH in /tpa/preset/system/settings/
This is the 176x220 pixel image displayed at boot up, called the Splash Screen.
Can be in gif, bmp or png format.
Animation not supported.

Startup Image: STARTUP_IMAGE_SEMC in /tpa/preset/system/settings/
This is the 176x220 pixel image shown after the Splash screen.
This image can be chosen by the user in settings/display/start-up screen so you don't need internal file system access to change this image.

Shutdown Image: SHUTDOWN_IMAGE_SEMC in /tpa/preset/system/settings/
This is the 176x220 pixel image that is shown when the phone is shutting down.
Can be in gif, bmp or png format.
Animation is supported, but total number of frames should be kept low, and gif should not be set to repeat animation, as this will slow down the shutdown.

Startup Sound: STARTUP_SOUND_SEMC.mid or STARTUP_SOUND_SEMC.mp3 in /tpa/preset/system/settings/
This is the sound that plays when the phone starts up.

Shutdown Sound: SHUTDOWN_SOUND_SEMC.mid or SHUTDOWN_SOUND_SEMC.mp3 in /tpa/preset/system/settings/
This is the sound that plays when the phone is shutting down.

Have Fun...!
