Replace WM's tmail.exe with Samsung skinned Email/SMS application (jinbox.exe)


Recommended Posts

Samsung O2 offer a Email/SMS client (jinbox.exe) like this:

but usually, the system still use WM's GUI like this:

post-609730-1269915512_thumb.png

so... I write a small program to let the system to use Samsung's jinbox.exe if possible.

for SMS only:

If you just need SMS feature for this, and keep the email to WM's style, you need tmailwrap_sms.zip, just install tmailwrap_sms.cab.

tmailwrap_sms.zip

for both Email and SMS:

If you want both email and SMS to use Samsung's program, you need tmailwrap.cab.

but... because this cab will replace the WM's tmail.exe, it can't be installed directly... so you need following step:

1. use Resco File Explorer, copy tmail.exe to \Windows, overwrite the file in ROM.

2. install tmailwrap.cab

tmailwrap.zip

the version for JD1 (wm 6.5.3):

tmailwrap_653.zip

PS. this only test at I8000HZHJC2 (it include a tmail.exe from this ROM), I'm not sure it work for others or not.

This didn't make any difference on JC1 ROM when either launching email from Titanium or from Email shortcut on start menu.

yes, from CHome's email shortcut still use tmail.

because it will pass the parameter like 'APICL: xxxxx yyy', I still can't understand this, so just pass it to tmail.exe.

Here's the curious thing: There is no jinbox.exe on the US version (i920) of the O2. Yet, BOTH styles of GUI appear depending on how tmail is invoked.

By this I mean some of the i8000 Samsung-style interfaces; for example, the really nice interface for SMS/MMS will appear if called from SPB Mobile Shell contacts page for a contact to create a new SMS. Call it from the SMS listing (ugly plain WM interface), and you get the ugly plain SMS composition GUI.

The new GUI seems somehow to have been integrated into tmail by Samsung on the i920. I haven't figured out how to invoke it, as there don't seem to be any command-line switches that are being passed. I'm guessing it's a stylesheet or xml file somewhere.

Anyone know how this works? I'd like to call up the Samsung GUIs as much as possible...

hm... yes, if there's a default wm instance exist, the system won't call tmail.exe again, (maybe) just send some message or event to such instance.

anyway... use this solution still get wm default program sometimes, because... it just use samsung's jinbox.exe only if possible, not always.

i920? wm 6.1?

you can try this tmail.exe from i8000 wm 6.1, it work fine for I8000HZHIJ1.

tmail_wm61.zip

apparently it doesn't work on the Omnia 2 i920

it's a shame... i really wanted that UI

hopefully someone really good with this stuff would find a way to fix it on the i920.. if it gets enough support (it should now with the new commercials) xD

tmail.exe is a ROM file... just delete the one you overwrote it with, reboot, and the old one from the ROM will magically reappear.

to overwrite rom-files simply rename the original.

I did try to delete it and reboot my phone but still didn't work. I haven't thought about renaming the tmail.exe to something else but I doubt it wouldve worked since nothing else worked for me. So I guess hard was my best bet. Thanks for all the responses tho

uninstall it or

execute the original tmail.exe

thanks for your reply. could i beg your generosity, and ask how?

i tried so many cabs and changed several registry but, failed :(

after some of the trials, the result, the sms is not working at all :(

after others, the win sms is working through the skinned samsung sms. B)

i want to disable, better uninstall the skinned samsung, so when click at sms icon i get tmail only!!!

so, could i beg your generosity, and ask how? :P

thanks in advance
