Ahoy! Welcome to the forum :)

Why do those videos stir you up? :D You like what you see? It's simple, simple, simple!

The way to getting your phone to look, feel and work like on those videos is done in just a couple of clicks :)

First, I need you to do something. Turn off your phone. Now press and hold *, # and RED button. Wait until "bootloader" shows up. When it does - write here all the stuff you see on screen? Don't be nervous, maybe you won't hit it the first time. And don't worry, it's nothing dangerous! After that I can tell you the next steps :)

Cheers!

hi niksy! thank you for replying to my post..
anyways this has come up when the boot loader shows up.

boot loader
0A.02.
SW version:
R373_G_0E.30.4
2R

thanks.

Okay, you're good to go :)

You need RSD Lite, a piece of PC software by Motorola, for flashing your phone. You'll have to googe for it, since we can't share warez here. Get the latest version you find! (I've got v4.5.7 ;) )

After getting it, you should backup all your stuff. Everything that is in phones memory will be gone after flashing! You will need Flash&Backup 3.0.7 to completely backup your phone's software. You will need that in case your phone "dies".


You can check the MonsterPacks section now, to find something you want to flash on your E1 :) You need to get the "E1" version (or "0A.02 version") not the E398 (07.D0 version)!

I have to recommend you some older, legendary MP's! After them, feel free to flash anything new :D First, Revolution v4, by Bodyguard! One of 2 best MPs ever for me :) See Revolution v4 here - http://www.e398mod.com/content/view/103/30/

And BackInBlack by Sysmaster - you can read about it here - http://modmymobile.com/forums/7-e398-i398-rokr/240-back-black-mp-v1-0-a.html


Those are 2 old MP's that I loved the most :) (I've been into E398 modding for almost 6 years now) They are old, but they've got heart and they've got soul! New mp's have much more features, but I think you will be stunned by those two, since you never modded your phone...


If something is confusing you, please ask! Better safe than sorry ;) You can find some guides on the forums... Just ask anything about where you get stuck ;)

Cheers!

hey niksy,
first of all i really appreciate you on helping me on this. thanks man!

okay, i just downloaded the RSD Lite and Flash&backup..
how will i use the RSD for modding?

and about the monsterpack, am i just gonna choose only on the e1 MP's? like in the link right here https://motohell.com/index.php?board=17.0

and about the link right here
http://modmymobile.com/forums/7-e398-i398-rokr/240-back-black-mp-v1-0-a.html
how can i download the monster pack of the 2nd photo there?

i am sorry for so many questions i am so noob i really want to learn modding my e1..thank you  :)


NiKSY

I'm sorry, I've lost my net connection for a couple of days :-/
You can write me an e-mail if you want?


Anyway, everything you see here - http://modmymobile.com/forums/7-e398-i398-rokr/240-back-black-mp-v1-0-a.html - is a part of one monster pack :) That in 2nd screenshot is just one of the skin it has ;)

Have you made a FULL backup with Flash&Backup? Open the program, go to "Read data" tab (just click "Select all code groups" and click "Read data" button ;) (do not tick "Cut empty bytes at the end of code groups"!)

Before that you should charge your battery to FULL! And after the process charge it again!

Then, guessing you got your monster pack of choice, you should open RSDlite, select it and just click flash... It takes couple of minutes (do NOT touch your phone!) and it will make you nervous, but after that you'll get some nice stuff ;)

I'm glad you appreciate the help :D
Cheers!

lestervai

hey! im glad you have your connection back. :)

is there any more choice of the monster pack for e1?
im starting to get this thanks to you! i owe you big time!

NiKSY

Relax, you don't owe me anything :) Just share the knowledge! On the forums, on the streets, in your neighborhood...

Sure there are! That one is old and SIMPLE. That's why I wanted you to try it first...These days everything became pretty complicated on the E398 :D (at least for the beginners, no offending intended!)

You can't if you don't do what ZduneX said, but I really think it's not necessary now! There are plenty of MPs made for E1... Why do you ask?

Yeah, of course I've heard of that country :)

JEMAU MANAK

Sure you can flash, if you already make a backup. Just make sure it has same boot loader.
DAR, Dream A Reality MP. the newest flash file. Take a look at MP's section.
