    Default Is there a way to remove OVI Contacts Tab?

    I just upgraded to v4.. felt most of the bugs reported right away.. but im not a whiner, so im just keeping it cool and living w/ it.. thing that really bugged me was the SCREEN staying on when the phone notifies you it's fully charged.. i have a habit of charging overnight while i'll sleep and it sucks to see my phone screen ON and ACTIVE every morning..
    ..but im still keeping cool.. hardly..

    but then i found this stupid OVI CONTACT tab cluttering my phonebook tabs!!!!


    Im a guy who likes to keep things lean, and clean, removing anything i dont use.. and now THIS OVI CRAP is being FORCE-FED to me!!! ARGGHH!!! this time im really hating this crap..

    reason im so upset is, so far i've not found a way to remove that gawd forsaken extra tab! I look to you guys for SALVATION from this!!! huhuhuh

    Is there a way to get rid of it really?


    Regards
    TJ

    Since there is no standard way to do this (also, to my irritation, this was implemented in the FW, so you have no choice), perhaps, modding is the answer.

    Topic moved from S60V5 forum to Symbian Modding.

    hi all.

    this method tested on nokia n 97 mini, but i think must work in 5800 xm

    this way from russian forum, use the nokia editor beta 6 for extract core firmware

    finding in /sys/bin file named oviimps_pbkkplugin.dll

    in hex editor replace some byte in file and pack in rofs2 file in /sys/bin and flashing your phone

    Done. I hope terrible OVI tab should disappear.

    Sorry my English.
