[MOD] Batch to modify MMS.apk for softbank users [v0.2]
Hello everyone !
As some of you probably know, to be able to send and receive mms in japan (sms are not used most of the time, lots of phone are not even able to use them), you need to modify the mms.apk, to make your phone a fake iphone.
After some research and tests, I have been able to find a way to modify any mms.apk of any rom, as long as the phone is rooted.
But as I update my phone really often with CM, I didn't wanted to do the all process over and over again.
Then I created some little batch files, which I share to you now, for the ones who want the same things.
Those batch files should work on any rom and phones, as long as they are rooted, with adb right.
I have no credit for the tools used by those scripts, I only created the batch files which use them.
And I am not responsible of any damage those scripts could do to your phone !!
/!\ This script is available for windows only /!\
Installation process :
1.unzip the file somewhere (if updating, delete everything and unzip again)
2.connect your phone to your computer and check if you can access to your phone in adb root mode. For JB roms, I saw that changing the usb mode to PTP helps sometime.
3.launch "mms_mod.bat" in admin mode
4.if at the end of the process your phone doesn't reboot and you sms icon doesn't disappear from your android home, which happens most of the time, launch the "put_mms_again.bat" in admin mode.
5(a).if everything work, your phone should reboot, and your sms icon should disappear from your android home. It is normal, don't panic, just take it back from your applications launcher.
5(b).if everything work except pushing the file inside your phone (inside /system/app), do it manually with root explorer for example (don't forget to change the Mms.apk file permission after copying it), you can find the modded Mms.apk in "Output\[device model]\[date&time]\Modded_file\". Then reboot your phone.
Now it's ok, your phone should now works on softbank network!!
Don't forget to use mms mode when you want to send something to a japanese phone!
Please note that if anything goes wrong, you can find a backup of your Mms.apk in "Output\[device model]\[date&time]\Backup_file\"
Oh, and if it is not done already, don't forget to setup the softbank's APN.
For that, just download the program named "Tweakker" on google play, it is perfect for that. But be careful, the default APN to use depends of your phone plan.
Tell me if you have any suggestion or bug !
