SMS Hot Fix test

Greetings All,

I managed to wrap up a hotfix for our SMS problem with lagging and not being able to txt. I am currently testing this to see how it is working, and so far, on an install level it went without a hitch.

This is not a fix for a noob, I STRONGLY suggest noobs do not attempt this hotfix, I am not responsible for bricking, crashing, loss of data, or frying of your phone! I assume no responsiblitly and if you attempt this you are doing so with knowing the risks that come with this!

Now since that is out of the way:

This hotfix is actually the last hotfix for the HD2 HTC messaging app that was dated 1/24/2010. As far as I know the last fix corrected the issue of being able to txt while the thread loaded in the background, and since Seppi at XDA the good soul came up with migrating the fix to tp2 but was a much older version (1.5.2011.2130) I decided I wasnt waiting for HTC and decided to take their HD2 hotfix and do the same thing Seppi did and here it is.

HotFix Compatability:

All 2.07.40x Manila 2.5 Roms. NOT COMPATABILE WITH ANY PRIOR OR FUTURE ROMS. All Languages Supported.

You Have to turn off Manila by going to Settings/All Settings/Today/Items and pick windows default. Also make SURE HTC messaging is not running or the hotfix will not install.

It will ask you to install either on the Device or SDCard. MUST BE INSTALLED ON DEVICE.

Fixes: (2) Possibily (4) since testing

1) Fixes the SMS lag we all have been dealing with and not being able to type as the whole thread loads. Now SMS's load in background.

2) So Far fixes the loss of contact picture, this is due to a resetting of the phone and associates SMS's to sim card and loses association with phone contact.

3) This is a POSSIBILITY, The infamous SOD might also be fixed, I since have not had any.

4) Again POSSIBILITY, The other infamous while typing the screen goes black, or as soon as you hit send the screen goes black.

Known Bugs: (3)

1) Same as in the HD2 at times the screen when rotating from landscape to portrait might mix up the last line where the last line and the one above it merge, going back to landscape corrects this. Does not happen from portrait to landscape.

2) All prior SMS's might not associate with the corresponding phone contacts.

3) This MAY reset your MMS settings and will need to re-enter MMS info. based on your service provider. You can reach this by tabing to Msgs/All msgs/Menu/Settings/Options/Menu/MMS Server. Select SampleMMSC to change your settings Manually.

Or going to Settings/All Settings/Connections/Connections Setup and going through the wizard again.

Notes:

I have attached two files, One is a direct install with no way to uninstall it, this is how I have it setup and is working. The other file has an uninstall feature incase of anything can be removed. I have not tested the one with the uninstall feature to see if it would work that way, but Your free to test it out.

To know if the hotfix has been applied, to go Msgs/All Msgs/Menu/About if successful, your app build should be 1.5 (Build 2011.3631) The original version on the TP2 was Build 2011.3831.

Any comments good or bad Feel Free.

Re: SMS Hot Fix test

because most are looking to ditch the sense SMS altogether, not continue to use it

the WM SMS threaded view is completely skinable in 6.5 so there is really no need for sense sms.. it's too slow and laggy on our device regardless and use a lot of memory loading all the sms.

some of us are working on a solution to completely get rid of sense sms. HTC needs to give us options to disable it since very few are a fan of it.

it's nice you came up with something that helps for those that "like" it.

Re: SMS Hot Fix test

Well I can understand people dis-like of the HTC messaging, I too hated the one that was in 2.1, main reason was cause the graphical send button, I was always use to hitting send at the bottom left, and the missing attachement button as well, but with the 2.5 manila, I have to say it grew on me, but the bugs was making me hate it. And everyone was trying something different, and since HTC decided they were going to come out with the fix for their NEW HD2 and screw US TP2 users, I figured screw them I'm not waiting, and 2 days of searching reading and learning. But no harm, at least anyone that likes it and just hates having to wait for the thread to load to text at least now has an option, I have been using it since the day before I posted this, and its working very well, yes the msg load lag is still there, but my care is opening a thread and being able to type right away, and I can do that now, and when I hit send, I can hit the end button and get out of it without having to wait for the msg to be done.

Still looking for the file that is the template and what not for the msg screen in the files, maybe its an error in there, so far I found two trivial errors that I fixed. But still looking between the files that was replaced in the HD2 hotfix and the current EU ROM 2.07 files, because the old trick of hitting send on a blank screen doesnt work anymore on the new fix.
