Patch to sort the music gallery of Nokia s60v5

Usually in the Music Gallery of the Nokia devices there is a confusion of songs and ringtones, in our gallery there are not only ours songs but there is every music file present in the device and this happens because the music gallery scans every folder of our phone.

Fortunately this confusion can be avoided.

The file that manages the music gallery is the file 101FFCD2.txt located in the ROM Z of the nokia devices and this is its content:

cenrep
version 1
[owner]
0x101FFCD2
[defaultmeta]
 0
[platsec]
 cap_rd=alwayspass
[Main]
0x1 string "C:\\DATA\\|E:\\" 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail
0x2 string "\\SYS\\|\\PRIVATE\\|\\SYSTEM\\|\\CITIES\\" 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail
0x3 string ".odf|.dcf|.asf|.m4a|.mp4" 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail
0x4 string "C:\\data\\download\\|E:\\data\\download\\|C:\\data\\sounds\\digital\\|E:\\sounds\\digital\\|E:\\download\\" 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail
0x5 int 0 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=WriteDeviceData

Correctly editing this file and moving it in the path c:\private\10202be9\ we can set the folders that have to be scanned by the music gallery; we have to remeber that the private folder become accessible only if the phone is hacked.

The string 0x1 indicates the list of paths where the music gallyer search the music files, the default paths are "C:\Data" and the entire unit E.

The string 0x4 indicates the list of paths that the music gallery periodically scans to search new musical files.

Editing this file we can set where the music gallery have to search the music file, for example the file 101FFCD2.txt can be edited in this way:

cenrep
version 1
[owner]
0x101FFCD2
[defaultmeta]
 0
[platsec]
 cap_rd=alwayspass
[Main]
0x1 string "E:\\SOUNDS\\DIGITAL\\|E:\\Music\\|E:\\Playlists\\" 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail
0x2 string "\\SYS\\|\\PRIVATE\\|\\SYSTEM\\|\\CITIES\\" 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail
0x3 string ".odf|.dcf|.asf|.m4a|.mp4" 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail
0x4 string "E:\\sounds\\digital\\|E:\\Music\\|E:\\Playlists\\" 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=alwaysfail
0x5 int 0 0 cap_rd=alwayspass cap_wr=WriteDeviceData

In this way the music gallery will search the music files only in the following paths:

  • E:\sounds\digital
  • E:\Music
  • E:\Playlists

In conclusion, to sort the music gallery we can simply edit the file that manage it or you can simply install the patch here attached. Installing this patch the music gallery will search the music files only in some folders and not in the entire phone

The folder that the music gallery will scan to search the music files are:

  • E:\sounds\digital
  • E:\Music
  • E:\Playlists

The patch will work on any s60v5 device.

The patch is unsigned, to install the patch the phone have to be hacked and with the installserver patch enabled or you have to certificate the patch before installing, once the patch has been installed you only have to restart the phone.
