This is only for B528 + Atmel Fix installed U8800

Root required.

Download this file. That rar archive contains modified boot.img

http://www.karakazan.com/dosya/ufukyayla/b528_boot.rar (It's my own domain, and it's safe)

Extract rar and copy the boot.img to your sdcard.
Copy that file to "/.cust_backup/image" folder and replace orginal boot.img.

---------------------------------
Skip if you know how to replace boot.img

1. Install "Es File Explorer"
2. Es File Explorer > Setting > File Settings > Check "Show Hidden Files"
3. Exit "Es File Explorer"

4. Install "Remount" (Stephen Stericson) from market.
5. Run "Remount"
6. Select "/.cust_backup"
7. Select "rw"
8. Click "REMOUNT"

9. Run "Es File Explorer"
10. Go "/.cust_backup/image" folder and backup orginal "boot.img" to sdcard.
11. Copy downloaded "boot.img" to "/.cust_backup/image" folder
---------------------------------

Restart

Now, you have read/write right to cust folder.
You can remove stock apps in "/cust/hw/default/app" folder.

If do you want to install swype (for your own language);

1. Just delete "/cust/hw/default/app/Swype_U8800_euro.apk"
2. Install a kind of swype what you want.

    mount ext3 [email protected]_backup/image/cust.img /cust ro

    to

    mount vfat /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 /.cust_backup rw wait
