    Default [Request] Run *.exe at startup 06.05.2010

    I would like to know if it is possible to run a exe file right at the beginning, before the firmware is fully loaded and how to do this. On earlier firmwares it was possible with a modified domainsrv.exe but how to do this in V50?

    The idea behind it is that i found a little programm (bootcopy.exe) that copys stuff that is defined in a file called bootcopy.dat.
    This would be a simple way to backup my stuff when i restart my phone.

    The files you can download from this site (AIO-Home-Screen-v1.00-MultiLanguage.zip)

    You can try to rename the exe to welcome2.exe or other exe you would have disabled normally.
    But you may not need that exe, scriptinit is great at copying files.

    no you didn't understand me properly. I don't want that it just copys after resetting or flashing (that's what scriptinit.txt does or not?), i want that it runs every time i switch on my phone. It should be copied right at the beginning cause some files are in use when phone is running. I could just copy them with FileBrowser (xPlore did not work).

    U could try replacing welcome2.exe with ur bootcopy.exe in starter_arm.rsc. These executables run after powering on and (after running splashscreen.exe) while u see the blue nokia logo.

    Yes i am afraid i don't understand fully.
    You need files to be copied every time your phone boots.
    Does these files get modified with use and you want to restore them to their original state?
    Or do they disappear somehow?
    Also the link is for a homescreen? is that what you are trying to copy?

    Yes the files are for a homescreen, but inside this .zip is a exe file (with description) to copy stuff on startup.
    I want to use this to backup my private files e.g. in the persists folder.
    now i modified the starter_background_apps.rsc with hex editor to launch this app on startup, but nothing is done. The screen of my phone stays black and does not boot.

    this is the description:
    The f:domainsrv.exe is modified to run 3 programs at the starting of the phone:
    * Boot0.EXE before the real z:domainsrv.EXE
    * [red]Boot1.EXE[/red] before the ROMPatcher (0RPAutostart.EXE)
    * Boot2.EXE afterwards

    This allows to perform actions as soon as the phone starts.

    Remember: if any of these program hangs, just eject the MMC because f:domainsrv.exe always
    needs to be in the ejectable disk.

    ************************
    As an example, bootcopy :
    This program reads a list of files from c:\BootCopy.DAT in the format
    z:\sys\bin\installserver.exe > c:\installserver.exe
    c:\private\10003a5b\calendar > c:\calendar
    e:\private\101f401d\logdbu.dat > c:\private\10003a5b\calendar

    and copies them.
    This is useful because some files can't normally be copied as they are in use by the system.

    This program has full capabilities, so it can copy almost every file.
    Of course, it can't copy into Z: drive.

    Simply install domainsrv , transfer
    bootcopy.exe -> c:\sys\bin\[red]boot1.exe[/red]
    Create your own c:\BootCopy.DAT
    And restart phone !

    I got my phone to start properly, but nothing is copied.
    I attached the rsc. (just rename .sis to rsc)

    btw: is there another way to edit rsc file without hex editor?
    EDIT: google helped: Resource Editor for Symbian OS
