Thanks for the info. That link to the .rar file is not letting me download. It says I must wait 43 minutes. Kind of interesting, but I suppose I will wait 43 minutes and see if that is true :) So my question is, has anyone seen this "free" gps software www.smart2go.com ? I'd love to buy a MIO 220 and use that software since it includes maps from around the world instead of just North America. I have installed it on my Nokia E60 and it works well, nice interface. It says it will run on Windows Mobile 5. What are the chances of it running on a MIO 220 that is unlocked with the above procedure? Do I need to go with the Mio 310 as it seems to be more functional when unlocked? Is there a better unit for unlocking than these Mios? I do like the $200 price tag of the Mio 220.

Can someone tell me what the purpose of the monitor icon is? When I click it the screen shuts off. How is this different from the power button?

If you needed, I can send the script.

Looks cool.. Is there an easy way for me to replace the main screen that comes with the hack or do I need to do a whole new hack install again?

Is easy, replace the content Script folder or rename these for security copy, (examp ScriptAAA) and create a new folder (name "Script") with the content of my script.

Later I will put photos of the Skin of CIBERUS 9. it is I magnify.

Since this thread is for unlocking the C220, is it ok to start a new thread on modifying the contents of the C220 " Hack " ( Script folder contents, etc = to change wallpaper, move/shrink icons, make more battery divisions, change displayed date format from mm/dd/yy to dd/mm/yy: all which I did yesterday )?

To dbeaty : If you have by chance downloaded anything from that site, your IP address is known by them. If you download a lot and are not paying for the service, you have a wait time depending on how much your last download was (if your last downloaded content was huge, then you have a long wait time, if your last download was small, then very little wait). I hope that answers the wait time issue.

To fonewiz : I had the same question. It seems to take a slightly longer time to power it back up from the "monitor" (dpms) icon than it does from the red "power" button (suspend). I just looked it up on the internet (dpms). DPMS is for display power management signaling, so it seems that it -maybe- powers down your display, but not the device itself.

Absolutely. Since we have a thread entitled "Tips and Tricks for the C520", why not make yours something like "C220 - Tips and Tricks". The Boss might even make it a "Sticky"...

-Supremo,

Done and Done

http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=88039

In a week I have gone from thinking I made our (sig other and I) gps a brick, to now being totally comfortable messing with it. Initially I thought it was going to be impossible to mess with any of the "Script" files (because I do not know how to program program), but it is quite easy.

It is nice having a customized wallpaper, tiny icons aligned on the right side, and the mio icon now on the bottom left (everything out of the way of the wallpaper). I am nowhere near done with the new thread post, but I got it started with what I hope could be of assistance in getting people started and comfortable with doing their own changes.

The flash memory has like 124 MB of free space. If I create a backup of the miomap folder, that takes away another 82MBs. No space on the 1GB SD card either.

So where do you guys store your MP3s and video files?

Using a larger SD card would be fine.

Check out the "which 4 Gig SD card to get" topic before running off, however. SDHC cards are not supported in the C310x and not yet confirmed or disproven for the C220.

The low-end GPS market is getting so damn crowded. Maybe MIO should consider opening up it's platform (or maybe "unintentionally" leave it open.) That could be their differentiator in this crowded product space ("buy a Mio xxx because it's the most hackable/customizable hardware platform". They've already kind of seen this with the C310x.) This would be similar to how Apex gained it's huge early marketshare in the low-end DVD player market. Would be cool if they had published folder/file structure information so that 3rd party developers could do things like custom voice files (like those available on TomTom) or custom wall papers.

What other utilities can be installed on c220 besides the Media Player and FileManCE2?

I am looking for a Calender, such as Pocket Plan, however, V2.07 only works on c310x.

Here is the easy unlock script. All you have to do is unzip it to the root of SD card.

http://rapidshare.com/files/34286048/MioC220.zip

1. Hard Reset C220 (Hold power button for 5 seconds until it's off, then turn it on again normally)
2. Insert the SD card. Yes, insert the card after power on.

Let me know if it works.

All paths for those SysInfo applications will need some modifications. The .ini files included are for demonstration purpose only.
