Edit: Updated with latest SLiMio (July 2008)

This is a pre-release July version of SLiMio. I have been looking into several unlock schemes in the last couple of months: Moonbear's first unlock scripts, Stopword hack, MIAO and most recently MioPocket. I found many good stuff, which I took, but then some sophisticated stuff I don't need (e.g., GAPI, NETCF). In addition, I looked for applications that are missing on C320 compared to C520 (as most of the unlock schemes were developed for C520).

It has four skins (or themes). Themes are actually based on one or two layers, so there are up to two backgrounds for each theme. The themes are stored separately (see the install instruction), so one can easily modify a theme or even create a new one (the latter would require modifying the file L2_settings.ini so that a new theme can be activated via the "System settings" screen).

What mattered to me was first to make things work (i.e., all GUI icons are active), second use scripts to work around problems and minimize user fixes (e.g., applications without "exit", applications that needs taskbar to be hidden and so on, application that need a virtual keyboard), and third keep this unlock simple.

Some screen shots:
Theme-1



Theme-2



Theme-3



Theme-4


Your comments are more than welcome. Besides that, I still need to adapt Jerry's latest MioMap skin to SLiMio (Currently 20080414 and 20080512 are supported - see my signature).

Cheers,
SkyLight

A couple of notes regarding SLiMIO's content...

1. Support of several skins (themes), where each theme is based on two layers. Current themes can be easily modified and newer themes can be added without a hussle. In all the themes there is a layer-1 main screen from which layer-2 screens are activated. In theme-1 through theme-3 there are two additional layer-1 screens - one for having a quick compact screen for launching regularly used applications and another for having a clean screen (with only MioMap).
2. Many applications:
- CE Commander in addition to FileMan CE and Explorer,
- TCPMP, Pocket Artist, Pocket Paint, XnPocket View, and the C320 internal MP3 player and picture viewer,
- Viewers for Office applications, Calendar and Contacts applications that synchronize with your PC outlook, Scientific calculator as well as C520-like calculator
- Mobi Pocket, U-Book, Microsoft Reader and an English dictionary
- Several games (I'm working on extending the "Games" screen to include some other games I saw in Mio Pocket and MIAO)
3. All programs accessible through Start\Programs menus
4. File extensions are associated with corresponding applications (I saw this in Mio Pocket)
5. Mainshell is minimized after restart or after termination of USB connection. In active-sync mode, the USB connection screen may be minimized by raising the taskbar (this may require a stylus pen) and pressing the "cleen desktop" icon.

Instructions are included in the Zip file.

Make sure the problem is not related to previous unlocks. First do a hard reset by pressing the off key for at least 10 seconds. Then make sure you have the SD card in place and continue with the unlock as detailed in the instructions.

@AA666,
It will work on C520 as well. However, C520 may have some similar applications already burned in its ROM. Try it and let me know what you think.

Any chance you can let me know how to get this to run from mio's flash drive? I don't like to have system files on my SD card. I just want to use the SD card to store maps and media files. It doesn't make sense to require an SD card in the slot in order to get everything running...

Thanks

There is an SD-free unlock out there, although most use the SD card. When I get to it, I plan to move the active theme to the flash drive, so you can take the SD card out. For now I want to see that it works as it is for other C320 owners.

No, it's very much like other unlock schemes. You get a WinCE desktop and a GUI to run applications. If you don't like it you just do a hard reset (hold the on-off key for 10 seconds and then release it, then hold it again for about 3 seconds and release again) and you're back to the "factory settings".

Come on guys, All I'm asking for is a couple of "brave" guys to test this on their Cx20 devices :)

@Dealpapa,
I'm not sure why you get an error regarding the location of systeminformation... maybe the path to your SD-card is different than "\Storage card". Have you succeeded running other unlock schemes in your C320?
