    Check #812 first as it has instructions about iTunes allowing custom ipcc stuff. Then the second one is how I updated and everything.

    P.S. When both walkthroughs say "Reboot"- we mean to hold down the power and home buttons together until the screens blacks and your startup icon shows (usually a white apple, but the white pwnapple shows up for me)


    EDIT: Oops! I had both links to my walkthrough. How vain. The 812 walkthrough with instructions on how to allow iTune to take custom ipcc is now posted. It was created by PhreakWenci

    Code:
    		<key>UAProf</key>

    		<key>UserAgent</key>
    		<string>SonyEricssonW800i/R1L</string>
    The result, no more thumbnail sized pics. My modified ipcc is attached.
    Is there anyway I can SSH this in? I'm at work and can't wait until 2200. I am desperate people!!!

    That's what I did, I just copy and pasted the carrier.plist file contents into the one I found there.

    For anyone feeling frisky you can also try the G1 User Agent might give even better resolution.

    <key>UserAgent</key>
    <string>Android-Mms/0.1</string>

    You can leave off the .. <key>UAProf</key> <string>http://wap.sonyericsson.com/UAprof/W800iR101.xml</string>. Best I can tell TMo doesn't even parse the xml.


    EDIT: Don't do this, you're better of with the SE string, seems the G1 gets some pretty crummy incoming MMS resolution,

    If you already have MMS enabled and running on your phone it's really not that much extra work. You just update with the new file (I guess internet2 is faster according to TekWiz- and with a name like that you gotta' just go with him). After you update just do an immediate reboot and you're set! The longest part may be downloading the file, unzipping, compressing, renaming, but that will literally take you less than 2 minutes. Maybe 5 if you're on a really old computer...

    ok so i think i found the part you are talking about, this is what my carrier.plist looks like (the part your talking about):

    Code:
         <key>UAProf</key>
    		<string>http://www.apple.com/mms/uaprof.rdf</string>
    		<key>Version</key>
    		<string>1.2</string>
    so all i have to do is copy/paste ur info over mine with the "sonyericsson" lines u suggest,and the image quality will be better?

    Install the ipcc, reboot for good luck, should be good to go.
    You, sir, are awesome. Worked like a charm - thanks~

    G1 photo settings work well enough. Hard to say if it is any better resolution.......

    Yeah you can also try unzipping the downloaded file, compressing the Payload folder into a zip and then renaming the Payload.zip into "Tmobile.ipcc" and it should work. Double check you do not have a hidden .zip extension. The thumbnail should change and the computer should ask if you "really want to change" the file extension from zip to ipcc. (at least on a Mac it'll ask)

    ya but it was completely grayed out. you have to run the command in terminal first to unlock the feature i guess then u can select it. it doesnt seem like it sends any faster. does it matter which one i use? my apn is wap.voicestream.com. im waiting for a pic now.

    Yes. Right. Do the command terminal business first and then try the extra-compress step. Sorry if I was unclear.

    The specific bundles were created for people (like me) who require a cellular data APN that is different from the MMS APN. I don't really know why but it seems like different plans and different people are able to access only one or two of the available APNs, but never all three. If your data APN is already wap then you can download either bundle and just manually change your APN to fit what you need. I think the epc might work for you without any changes.

    no it doesnt. i had my girlfriend picture text to [email protected] and it comes to my MMS app. so i'm just wondering why even doing that way i still get horrible picture quality.

    ok first off thanks a ton for figuring this out. so awesome to be able to get good quality images now.

    i used the first ipcc file that was posted like two pages back
    "TMobile_US_UAFaking.ipcc.zip"
    and it worked but now my carrier says T-Mobile in the corner instead of using the images i have in winterboard. here is how i have it setup:

    Theme.theme\Bundles\com.apple.Unknown\Default_CARR IER_TMOBILE.png and FSO_CARRIER_TMOBILE.png

    it was working just fine before i changed the ipcc to get MMS to work right. any help is greatly appreciated

    Ah, yes. This actually happened it to me to and I posted about it the very first time I got MMS to work. I used to have a glowing Tmobile icon that I enjoyed and it was subsequently removed after MMS update. In the original "Payload" folder there was a file called "Tmobile Bundle" and if you right clicked to "Show Package Contents" and the icon files were there. I tried replacing them once with some pretty tmobile .pgn logos I downloaded, compress and rename, and it didn't work. I kind of left it there because I don't really about the logo as much as I do the MMS. Especially now that the picture quality is cured, MMS has an actual application!!

    Had you used a different ipcc before or was this the first time you have used one?
