LP Guide - part 1 - Extract LP

How to extract LangPack from phone or MonsterPack
This post will show you how to extract the language pack as binary file from your phone or monsterpack, and how to make it a flashable LP reflash file.

Tools you need:
1. Flash&backup 3
2. SHXCodec 2.6

Backup language pack from your phone
Follow these steps:
1. Start Flash&Backup 3;
2. select "Read data" tab;
3. select "Active phone profile" that match your phone model, such as "motorola V360" or "motorola L7";
4. select SMG as "Backup format";
5. select ONLY code group 4 (CG4) to backup; (CG4 is the LangPack)
6. check "cut empty bytes at the end of code groups"
7. click "Read data" button;
8. wait for a few minutes, you will get the SMG file, which is the binary file of the Language pack in your phone.

Extract language pack from MP
Follow these steps:
1_ start SHXCodec and open the SHX monsterpack file. (please make sure the MP or the LP is suitable for your phone.)
2. select "Split source SHX file", the MP file will be split into many code groups (CG);
3. select CG4, which is the language pack, then click "Edit" button; The Language editor is shown;
4. click "Save langpack", and save the langpack as a SMG file.

Compile a LangPack reflash file using the SMG file
Follow these steps: (For bootloader 08.A0 or lower only. Guide for compiling LP for higher version of bootloader will be available later.)
1. start SHXCodec, and open an existing LP reflash file for your phone;
2. select "Split source SHX file";
3. select CG4, then click "Replace" button; then select the SMG file that you extracted;
4. rename the "Source SHX File", and click "Compile SHX" to compile the LP reflash file. Now you can use RSDLite to flash the compiled LP file to your phone.

How to install LangPack to your phone?
To install language pack, you need to flash the LP reflash file (a SHX file) to your phone, as how you flash a MonsterPack. Here is the "how to flash" guide.

I don't wanna bother you but, FB3 can save CG4 directly as a .shx. What's up with SHXCodec?

I've tried to replace the langpack with another one. After I've compiled the .shx file, I tried to flash my phone with the new langpack, but I get an error: Error executing Jump (with RSD Lite, Flash&Backup 3.0.6) and on my V360 display appears:
Boot Loader
R4513_G_08.B7.ACR (stock ACR)

OK to Program
Transfer Mode

What could be the problem ?
Thanks !

You can see on this link that the man changed the max applications to 142.

How do you mod your phone to do that.

I'm a noob so if you can give me the step by step one that.

OR if there is some sort of patch I can install on my phone to fix the limit that would be great.

Peace, please reply. Web
