Tim, are you seeing solid garble? Or animated garble? If you're seeing animated garble, what is your wallpaper setting from the phone itself? I've loaded 2 pmd's and 2 bci's, and they are all non-animating garble.
I have not tried over writing the file with an animated file myself. I simply read two different post and thought I would try and spark a flame by putting the two post together.
I have overwrote the wallpaper.bit with a normal jpg and it is solid scramble. I can't get strags creatbit program to work to get rid of my white lines.
At the begining of this post AeSoP_RoCkS states that he saw a animated scrambled image. So I thought that if he could take the info from the link I provided that he could some how make it reverse read like strat learned.
could someone send me an unmodified mmsImageIndex.map and the original pictures that come on the phone (martini, rose...etc) i messed my map up a long time ago and its making it that much harder to try to figure out animations
Has anyone gotten anywhere with this yet? I can upload animated bci's (created with BREW BCI v2) into the brew and mms image directorys, list them in the respected map file and see them on the phone but they do not animate. I have not tried anything with a .bit other than renaming a bci to 'wallpaper.bit' and getting a non-animated garbled image. Also does anyone know where the original animated images are stored? I know how the restore them (delete .map file and cycle power) but where are they located? Q-ball I take it you found out how to get the images back by now.
They have animated pics at GIN??? Did not know that, I never looked but if I knew that I would have gotten one already to see what type of file it is? I will get one later if they have them, anyone have a preference to an animation?
I don't know about you guys, but I have a VX4500 and after doing a little search here, one guy came up with a program called BIT2BMP and vice versa.
I happened to rename the BIT files I downloaded from my phone and renamed them as RAW files. Loading them in Photoshop, I was able to tell it to skip the 4-byte header, and specify the dimensions 120x131 that my phone has. It came up with a grayscale image of my picture I previously uploaded to the phone via Bitpim, then registered it as a wallpaper.
Since the VX4500 and VX6000 are quite similar, i.e. MP3 ringtones, are we certain that that this CMX/PMD format is the one they are actually using on the phones? I haven't been able to pull down an animated file, even when I set the poweron/poweroff/wallpaper to one.
