Skin edit trick - caller photo

Skin edit trick
Adjust coordinate of caller photo
I think this trick is already well known. You can edit the skin .SKI file to adjust the dimension/coordinate of the displayed caller photo when there is incoming calls.

Tools you need:
TextWrangler for Mac or UltraEdit for PC

Steps

1. download the .ski file (i.e. moto.ski) from your phone to your computer.

2. make a backup of the file, then open it using the text editor (TextWrangler or UltraEdit).

3. in the ski file, look for the 4 lines similar to the followings.
1 478 2 82 173 107
1 479 48 113 127 192
1 480 2 108 173 197
1 481 5 84 170 105

explanation
- The first 2 columns (i.e. 1 478) are the ID of the items, so you must not change them. The 3rd to 6th columns define the coordinate of the item. 3rd & 4th define the top-left corner of the rectangle, while 5th & 6th define the bottom-right corner.
- 1st line (1 478) defines the coordinates of the background of caller title
- 2nd line (1 479) defines the coordinates of the photo of the caller
- 3rd line (1 480) defines the coordinates of the background of caller photo
- 4th line (1 481) defines the coordinates of the title of the caller

4. you can adjust the coordinates to whatever you want. The following setting is just for your reference. This setting is used in the skins of my YuetMod MPs. Try it to see the difference. It will display big caller photo. You may need to adjust them to fit your skin.

1 478 2 17 173 37
1 479 4 37 170 196
1 480 2 37 173 197
1 481 5 17 170 36

5. after you have changed the coordinates, save the ski file and upload it back to your phone. It is done!
