+ SF Guide: How to hack N95’s News reader settings

06 June 2007

New Tweak from SF team
Hack the N95’s News reader template!

As you may have already know, Nokia N95 runs S60 platform 3rd edition, Feature Pack 1 and it means that it comes with new improved Safari browser and improved RSS reader. Feed reader now supports the Atom format (in addition to RSS) and the browser renders feeds in html format.

Previously, feeds could only be viewed as short text only summaries while the new version is capable to process and show, images, full text and links in html format which is incomparable better solution, but... .. .

Unfortunately, the main layout/template isn’t as good as it should be and therefore whole concept doesn’t looks very well and we getting lot of complains related to the news reader.

Text size is simply too large and it makes feed really hard to use and not eye friendly. Even worse, feed reader isn’t affected by the font settings in the browser itself and there is no way to change the font size just like that.

Of course, as a real freak I have already found solution and right settings and after hack it looks much better but I know that average S60 user don’t know how to do it and how to change the html template.

Anyway, after many user requests and questions over at our forum section, Ask guru form and Shoot box, we have decide to stop it, to make template and simple guide how to hack Feed Reader template.

So here it is, the latest tweak from SF team, let’s do it ;-)


You would need the following:

1.)

Restart phone and run yBrowser

2.)

Go to root of C:\ drive

3.)

Highlight
feeds_view_template.html

4.)

Delete it!

5.)

Now download the SF template and extract the content from the zip file somwhere on your PC.

6.)

Upload the feeds_view_template file to your phone, via the cable in mass storage mode or simply send it via BT.

7.)

Once uploaded run the yBrowser again, find the file and choose:

  • Options / Edit / Copy

8.)

Go to root of C:\ drive and choose:

  • Option/edit/paste


That’s it, run Safari and enjoy in new eye friendly layout, hope you like it ;)

If you have any further question please don’t be hesitate to ask anything, also if the ready made template doesn’t meet your needs completely contact me at our forum section and I’ll help you with editing to get the right size and look.. .

9.)

* Guru tip

If you decide to send the file via Bluetooth, file will be placed in your Inbox folder.

Unfortunately messaging application lacks "Save as" option and therefore you’ll have to install mail folder plug-in for the yBrowser to get the access to the mail folders.

10.)

Extract the mail folder plugin-in from the archive, send it to the phone and install it from the inbox.

11.)

12.)

Run yBrowser again and go to mail folder, copy template and folow the instructions from step 8!
