    Default [QUESTION] Where does settings are stored?

    Hi all ,

    someone could explain where these different settings are stored? I would like to put some line into my scriptini, to restore them at first boot after flashing/HR. I made a search, but I did not find nothing useful, profiles apart, for which I found some setting, without the profile name...

    These I already know, in case you may need:
    * Gallery index: e:\101f8857\CLFCollections.dat <- To be tested. Pheraps it works only if directory structure remains the same after HR
    * Contacts index: c:/private/100012a5/DBS_20019536_FrenFriendDb.db (thx to Szakalit)
    * Contacts: c:\Private\10003a73\contacts.cdb
    * Music player index: e:\Private\101ffca9\harvesterdbv9_5.dat
    * Destinations (WAP, WiFi, etc.): c:\Private\10202be9\persists\cccccc00.cre
    * Profiles & settings (including profile names): c:\Private\10202be9\persists\101f8798.cre
    * Email boxes&settings (it's still to test): c:\Private\10202be9\persists\10001028.cre; c:\Private\10202be9\persists\102071f1.cre
    * Something concerning alarm&alarm tone (still 2 test): c:\Private\10202be9\persists\101f874d.cre
    * "Answer" SMS on incoming call: c:\Private\10202be9\persists\101f877e.cre
    * Speed Dial: c:\10003A73\Cntmodel.ini
    * Alarm Events and Alarms: c:\private\101f5027\AlarmServer.ini
    * Uid Security and Keylock settings: c:\private\10202be9\persists\101F877A.cre
    * Shortucts bar: c:\private\10202be9\persists\10275104.cre

    I think that it could be useful for other friends too.

    Thanks in advance!

    You could make backup of settings to E then put E://Backup/Settings.arc in Z.
    Settings.arc contains most of the settings you are asking for.
    Have a look at Calendar.arc in backup also not sure of the filesize.
    Then have scriptinit copy it to E that way you still have your settings.
    Even if you formatted or new memorycard/phone.

    THX, anyway I'd like to restore specific settings only and without do a manual restore of the backup. Moreover, e:/backup/settings.arc stays there, unless you format sd.

    • Destinations: c:\Private\10202be9\persists\cccccc00.cre


    I hope to be of some help.

    Cu m8s!!!

    It seems a great find, since in not much time most of us (I think) will update to N97's FW ported to 5800, and we can save, at least, our settings and contacts!
