Seems control the basic function of the flex by activating and deactivating features on the phone. Seem "0032_0001" is used as an example. It is also one of the most important seems you'll come across. Launch P2K Phone File Manager. To download seem "0032_0001" from your phone, type in the first four digits of the seem, in this case "0032" in the "Seem" area "From" and "to" box as shown. Then click the "Download seem" button.

A "Save As" window pops up. Leave the value "xxxx_yyyy.seem" in the "File name:" box as is and click the "Save" button.

Start XVI32. Click on "Tools", and click on "Options".

Then click on the "Data Inspector" tab. Make sure the "big-endian (Motorola)" radio button is checked.

Now that that's done, open the seem "0032_0001" that you just saved. In this screen shot, look at the value in the white panel that's highlighted. In this case the number "30" is seen in blue. This is the actual offset location that must be edited. So, the value "30" is currently stored in offset "1D". How do we know that this is offset "1D"? Notice at the bottom of the screen it says "Adr. hex: 1D". This will change based on what offset square you are highlighting. Move to the left and the offset address decreases, move to the right and it increases in number. To navigate around to other offsets either click with your mouse or use your arrow keys.

Go to the tool bar menu. Click "Tools" and then "Bit
manipulation...".

The "Bit manipulation" window pops up. Each value from "0" to "7" is called a bit. Depending on the seem you are editing, you will either check or uncheck the corresponding box next to the bit. After that, click the "Set" button and save the edited seem "0032_0001". If you get seem editing instructions like: "004a_0001 > offset 22 [Set 01]" somewhere outside of this guide, then all you have to do is find the offset "22" and then manually type "01" in its two-digit box. You do not go into the bit manipulator to do this.

Verify everything you do.

Now upload the saved seem "0032_0001" using P2K Phone File Manager. Go to the "Seem" area. This time use the lower two boxes where it says "Upload seem". Type in "0032" in the "Seem" box and "0001" in the "rec" box as shown. Then click the "Upload seem" button.

In the "Open" window choose the seem "0032_0001" and click the "Open" button.

You will see "uploading seem N 0032record N 0001 ok." In the "Phone control" area click "Restart phone" and you're done.

Nice guide, hey-man! :thumbup:

One extra setting that I use (because I need things to be simple) is to set the numbers of columns displayed in XVI32 to 16. (Tools > Options > Appearance)
This way, every row starts from the same point .. 0, 10, 20, 30 etc.
For me, it's easier to find a specific address this way.
