Eclair update, see changelog
I've just wrote a patch that allows you to change the MMS User-Agent within the messaging application. It's handy to for the follow reason:
If your carrier does not recognise the User-Agent as one it has seen before, and they are not using a well behaved MMSC, the MMSC will simply degrade the message to the lowest quality. The fix is to "spoof" the User-Agent from a phone that your carrier does recognise.
The APK below is built against cyanogen's CyanogenMod 3.9.7 (which also means you get rgv151's Send On Enter patch and other goodies aswell). The patch is also in the ZIP. Once installed, the setting is found under Messaging -> Settings -> MMS User-Agent.
To install, download the zip below, extract the APK and:
adb push Mms.apk /system/app
- iPhoneOS/3.0 (7A341)
- BlackBerry8800/4.2.1 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100
- NokiaN95/11.0.026; Series60/3.1 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1
Cosmetic Changes - Now has a new "Advanced Settings for MMS" screen in the settings. You can also now choose from a predefined list of User Agents, or enter your own by selecting 'Custom' and then entering your user agent in the option below.
Rebuilt against CM3.9.7
For the Hero Mms.apk, I've had to do it a bit different. There's no menu's, I've just decompiled the classes.dex (using JF's superb smali) from the Mms.apk in JACHeroski's 2.7.4 and changed the hardcoded values for the User Agent. I've recompiled three versions, one using the N95 string, another using the BlackBerry 8800 (both in hero_mms.zip) and the final one using a Softbank UA (in Mms_softbank.zip). I'm not running a Hero rom so can't test these, let me know if you try them. You only need one of the APKs from the ZIP! Rename the one you want to Mms.apk, then push it where you need to on your ROM.
After quite a few people PM'ing me, I've updated the original patch for Eclair. I'm still on Donut which is why I haven't updated it before. Anyway it's been commited to OpenEclair and should be in the next release: http://github.com/openeclair/android...1582b9caaf1217
I haven't compiled it myself therefore I can't produce an APK for download as yet. If you fancy doing it yourself, here's the patch: http://paste2.org/p/692468.
If you don't know, this command will tell you where:
adb shell find /system -name Mms.apk
