LG Voyager Hacks Thread Part 2

Making use of USB Mass Storage Mode to directly work with files stored on an inserted MicroSD card.  LG Cell phone Software

NOTE: this only works if you have a MicroSD card inserted in the phone.
Connect the USB cable that comes with phone…  LG-voyager info

On the phone… Menu -> Settings & Tools -> Tools -> USB Mass Storage…

This causes the phone to be identified as like a “USB Card reader”.. and the inserted card to show as a Drive letter… You can then drag/drop files the into the My_PIX, My_Sounds, My_Music, My_Flix folders on a microSD card inserted in the phone.. or copy files back to the PC.

Use the key on the LG Voyager to exit mass storage mode and return to normal when you are finished.

Note: while in USB Mass Storage Mode, the phone will not be able to send/receive calls, messages, etc…

Note: because the phone now looks like a USB Card Reader with inserted memory card, you may access and manipulate it just like any other “flash drive”… store what ever files you want.. open or delete them too. All right from the card.

NOTE: this will NOT work to access the phone’s internal memory. It only works to access a MicroSD card inserted in the LG Voyager.

Bluetooth: What bluetooth profiles are supported by the LG Voyager?

Where do Files Go?

File Locations… this is a listing of the locations of the “popular” files on the different phones. It can be useful when working with the phone’s file system in BitPim

Adding Ringtones with USB Cable & Bitpim (Using BitPim’s GUI support) (per [TheBORG])
DO AT YOUR OWN RISK. I am not responsible if you mess up your phone.

1. Connect USB cable to PC.
2. Connect USB cable to phone.
3. Open Bitpim ( ). [Note: You’ll need BitPim 1.0.3 (10 Dec 2007) Or NEWER]
4. Click on the plus in front of Phone.
5. Click on the plus in front of Media.
6. Click on ringers.
7. Click the Add Ringer button (4th button from the LEFT).
8. Navigate to the folder on your PC where the ringtones are located.
9. Select the ringtone that you want and click the Open button. Make sure these files are about 30 seconds long. You can use a program called Audacity ( ) to make the actual files (work off duplicate files so you don’t overwrite the original files).
10. A Convert Audio File window will open. To lower the file size of the ringtone drop the Sample Rate and Bitrate down one or two settings.
11. Click the Convert button.
12. Make any adjustments to the ringtone file if needed. You can play the file to test the volume, but most likely you will need to test it from your phone to make sure it’s loud enough.
13. Click the OK button.
14. Repeat steps 7-13 for addition ringtones that you want to add.
15. Click the Send Phone Data button (2nd button from the LEFT).
16. Check the Ringtone checkbox and make sure that Add radio box is selected (not Replace All).
17. Your ringtone(s) are now being transferred to your phone. DO NOT DISCONNECT THE USB CABLE FROM EITHER END!
18. On your phone, navigate to the Menu – Get It Now – Music & Tones – My Ringtones. Check out your new ringtones!

How to flash the phone’s firmware at home.

How to flash the LG LG Voyager‘s firmware. If you want to upgrade the firmware on your LG phone, this is how…

FAQ: How do I add ring tones to the LG Voyager? There are 3 ways I know of….

1. BitPim. (via usb cable, or Bluetooth) as outlined above. Using either the Native/GUI support for ring tones, or by accessing the file system and placing a properly formatted file in the correct folder. ( /brew/mod/10889/ringtones )

2. Email Trick (see -> HowToEmail.htm ), where you email the properly formatted ring tone file to [yourphonenumber] at vzwpix dot com… then save as ring tone when it gets there… but this has been very unreliabile lately… it can take anywhere from Minutes to DAYS for the message to reach your phone. And if you don’t do it properly, it may get saved as a SOUND rather than RingTone, and can’t be used as a ring tone.

3. MMS Trick… place properly formatted ringtone file on your phone in the SOUNDS folder either on your MicroSD card, or in the sounds folder in the phone’s memory (using BitPim)… then send an MMS message to yourself with the file attached.. and again, save as RingTone.

The easiest/quickest/most reliable way is… BitPim.

FAQ: Can I put Ringtones on the MicroSD card?

No. As is the case with most/all phones (non-smart, non-pda, non-blackberry that is)… Ring Tones must exist in the phone’s memory. There was a hack to use BitPim and re-write a file on some of the LG phones to get around this however that hack doesn’t work on the LG Voyager. Even if it did, the phone would have to keep power to the MicroSD card all the time (so they are available if/when the phone rings) which will drain the battery, and they’d be lost as ring tones (and you’d have to re-do the hack) if you remove the MicroSD card. With 140meg+ of memory on the LG Voyager there is no reason to NOT keep them in the phone’s memory.

Elements of Garden Proposal It is quite counterbalance to approximately that scads moneymaking garden lay-outs started to take body on a plan board. At the beginning-although it will be known what phylum of garden is envisaged and some of the features to be included-it is not imperative to create any assured ideas on set up but healthier to centralize to begin on measuring and recording all the existing features so that an conscientious bird’s-eye way of thinking of the garden can be drawn to scale. There is no other advancing of seeing the area as a caboodle largely and the principle of the residence satisfactorily. It is from this devise that ideas in requital for the lay out of the garden and planting plans can be formulated. THE EARLY PLANNING POINT It is unusual for a patch of land to be exactly rectangular and the sides are time again unequal in length. The quintessential aids at this near the start point are a measuring reel, at least 6oft(i8m) in in detail; a metal spike to safe the end, and a large literature pad. Gloaming without the promote of a surveyor’s more decorate apparatus, a equitably precise survey can be made to clinch the supervising of the boundaries and the position of the ancestry contingent on to these, via charming the measurement from a corner of the clan or erection in line with the screen to the perimeter (Fig.i). If the but make is repeated on the in spite of side from another corner it purposefulness escort if the frontiers is at an bend or homologue to the building.A further repression can be made by fixing the stripe in inseparable of the indubitably corners of the purlieus and operation along the footing frontiers until the obstruction of the building-which would be seen al preferred angles-disappears from view. If this width is compared with the others made earlier the points on the confines should touch at the three places. If it is inescapable to line a descry area across a report of real property from a woman poin to another, it is useful to have on tap 10 or more 6ft(2m) bamboo canes (last Fig.2). The canes are then spaced, conceivably 8 or ioft(2.5 or 3m) or more apart, over a presupposed space, and when five or six canes are in put the area is made exactly decent by way of adjusting the intermediate canes between the two end ones. When a sighting is made from the furthest intention, no greater than the nearest cane bequeath then be visible. The point of view of a tree or other permanen features can be recorded alongside measuring from the aim in point to two points which are separated by way of a known gap; this could be two corners of the house. The measurements are then transcribed to paper with the press into service of a compass and the estate significant where the arcs cross. Having distinguished as multifarious details as possible that are disposed to to be practical, a diagram of the field can be tense to scale. It can large be hypothetical that if the create appears to be propitious on paper it leave possibly be right on the site. The need to realize the garden from the word go in plan variety applies particularly if the beds an< contours walk a curved outline.
