The gx.dll on Smartphone is in ROM ==> IMPLICIT UNLIMITED TRUST (same as privileged signed).

ok, but can i rename or copy the gx.dll ROM file? because i can't have two dll with same name in one process.

Copy is impossible... (since it is in ROM ;-) )

But rename should be possible.

No, rename of gx.dll in Windows also isn't possible, I tried that.

Funny is, that in case of other files, like .mid, when I try to rename I get the error: "can't delete file" BUT a copy with the new name is beeing created :D So we can write to that folder, it's just that some files are protected.
Additionally, I have read that in case of viruses, there may be patches released, so with proper permissions, an app could possibly get write permission for files in Windows... :twisted:

Am I missing something? Every app that didn't run before installing this patch didn't run after installing it, too. I tried copying the DLLs to the app directory, windows directory and storagewindows directory to no avail.

Just imagine... it's a simple setting to fix this (Mitac can do it easily)...

you mean with a security xml update like the current unlocking (i suppose it is)?
then it would mean they really don't carry about customer support :D

but at least i learned many new things about smartphones :D

Well hot damn, that last update did the trick for me. It not only works, it works very well. I can't say as I really cared all that much about playing games on the phone but it's working and for that, a million thanks!

with updated GAPI2GDI:

- SPVMan now works perfectly!
- Picodrive doesn't work anymore
- PocketSNES laucnhes but freezes the phone when a rom is loaded
- XRally Alpha works (but the game sucks! :D)

I'm gonna try to put the dll files directly on directory.. Stay tuned...

are you sure you removed all the old wrapper's gx.dll and gxorig.dll? puting gxdma.dll to the apps directory doesn't matter anymore. the original gx.dll in windows will load and use the gxdma.dll (not the application).

P900?? How could you? :D Get SmartPhoneTurbo and clock your Mio8390 at 300MHz (RAM gets then clocked at 133MHz) - then show me faster Smartphone :D
Tutorial for final GAPI solution is almost ready, I'll post it in few minutes...

Don't forget to send your post to Mitac along with a few words on how much we've enjoyed their support in this matter and how soon we'll all be ready to buy another phone from them.

Meanwhile, kudos to the support here. :-)

Sorry it took so long, I had to try all games to be sure it works :D

So far ALL games and apps I tried work when properly signed :lol:
Yeti3D RULEZ :shock:
You need to see this! http://modaco.com/vi...ic.php?t=109335
Eclipse: First Wave - works great! it took me some time to test it, couldn't take my hands off my phone... :D

Thanks to Picard, the maker of BetaPlayer, who doesn't even own Mio8390, but was able to code GAPI2GDI wrapper and then make this final solution happen :D We were working on it until late night hours yesterday, but it worked :D

Now IT IS TIME TO CELEBRATE Posted ImageEnjoy.

Great tho, just thinking, signing is a long process, but is there much difference having the wrapper and signing? coz all the games work fine with the wrapper, should i uninstalle the wrapper then sign all the games, will that be better?
