iSync 2.1 and the ePhone
Apple just released an update to the Phone/Palm syncing app iSync. Unfortunately the ePhone (a motorola A1000) still isn’t natively supported, so once again I had to set about tweaking the MetaClasses.plist file to get it to work.
The ‘hack’ is pretty much the same as last time and requires that you replace some of the lines under the sony-ericsson p900 entry… I’ll include the whole chunk of code after the ‘read more’ for anyone who wishes to upgrade iSync to 2.1 and continue using their A1000 with it.
I’ve ‘bolded’ the lines that need to be changed – simply replace the text that already exists with the changes that I’ve made – conversly you can just copy and paste this whole chunk over the p900 entry in the MetaClasses.plist, which is found by right clicking on the iSync.app and choosing ‘Show package content’ – then navigate to the file:
Contents > PlugIns > ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice > Contents > PlugIns > PhoneModelsSync.phoneplugin > Contents > Resources > MetaClasses.plist
[/code]Once you’ve made the changes and saved the file, iSync will want to update the sync software on the phone (from version 1.0.0 to 1.0.1), this shouldn’t present any problems, so just let it do it’s thing.
If you totally want to class up your.. well.. life… you can use this custom EOL A1000 icon for your phone. Just drop it in the same directory as the MetaClasses.plist
Also I’ve just of the hell of it I created this schweet ePhone wallpaper too – Purely by accident some weird holographic effect thing happens to the text when the wallpaper is displayed on the phone’s screen (maybe normal TFT displays too).. which makes it, even more the cool.
