This guide here is only for hacked phone.
Please use this guide only for learning.
We do not take any responsibility for damage caused if you modify these files/folders. Please make sure u know exactly what u are doing

Inside C:\Private folder there are some sub folders :

DBS_100065FF_Contacts.cdb - Contacts Database
DBS_100069CC_btregistry - Bluetooth device List
DBS_10207216_SWinsLog.db - Instalation log of Softwares

for OS9.1 phones ( N73-1), some of the folders are different. For example, the
C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_100065FF_Contacts.cdb - Contacts Database
C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_100069CC_btregistry - Bluetooth device List
C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_10207216_SWinsLog.db - Instalation log of Softwares
C:\Private\10003a5b\Calendar - Calendar File

10005A3E\mediaplayer.dat - This is list of Recent clips in Real Player. Those who want to hide what videos they have seen, can just delete it

\10003A73\Cntmodel.ini - Speed dial Numbers
\1000484b\Mail\ - Mail Folder (SMS)
\101F413C\SIPprofiles.dat - SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) Profiles
\101F4668\UnitConverter.ini - Stored Exchange Rates in the Converter
\101F8530\Cookies - Browser Cookies
\101875a\Startup\ - Startup Files ?
\102072CC\SIMLanguage.dat - Current selected language of the SIM
\20003252\Menuketserver.ini - (This File is in the Startup List)
\10003A3F\import\apps\ - All your shortcuts to installed applications are saved in here in .RSC format, simply rename the .RSC to .RSCX to temporarily remove them from Menu, you can rename .RSCX back to .RSC later on.
\101f401d\Logdbu.dat is the log file.
\101F4CD2\Applications.dat is the file that holds the settings and locations of icons and custom folders located on your phone's MENU.

C:\resource\apps - The MIF files (Icon Files) Of the Softwares Installed in the phone,

C:\sys\data\mmcstore - This file has the Memory Card Password, Open with a text editor to view the current memory card password.

Some interesting facts. not yet tested

1. C:\private\10000850\
contains the mbm file of operator logos

2. C:\private\100059c9\start.dat
some kind of autorun trigger. I couldnt decode this file, but it is it, I'm sure.. Why I think so? Because only after renaming or moving this file, autorun doesnt work. In all other cases apps start.

3. C:\private\10202be9\20001079.txt
this location.. in this text file there is code, and a line which says :

0x00040006 string "clockspeed" 0 
0x00040007 int 332 0
on line 41 and 42 of the file.. overclocking possibility maybe?

also in this file is loads of settings with the graphics processor too

0x00A00000 string "/hardware/graphics/displays/0/ngageorientations" 0 
0x00A00001 int 0x00090000 0
0x00A00002 string "ngageorientationscount" 0
0x00A00003 int 3 0
0x00A00004 string "defaultngageorientation" 0
0x00A00005 int 0x08 0
0x00A00006 string "useroptions" 0
0x00A00007 int 0x0B 0
0x00A00008 string "wsinimodes" 0
0x00A00009 string "0x01, 0x02, 0x08" 0
ngage stuff there

0x00090000 string "/hardware/graphics/displays/0" 0 
0x00090001 int 0x00080000 0

4. In Z/private/101f51f2/PKI/96b7db19a4d...../

it has files in called

or in Z/private/10203636/security/trustroots/device/certificates/

nokia content signing

click on any of them it says save certificate.
then when you click save it says new cert might be unsecure save anyway? i ant got round to clicking save yet lol

5. C:\PRIVATE\101F4CD2\Content\appshelldata.xml
this file contains the whole menu layout (N82)

6. I found some huge file in phone, c:/private/102072c4/reserved.bin, 4.5 Mb size of plain 0xff.

Deleted it and free up phone memory check if your phone has one.
the files are for FOTA (firmware over the air) coz when i remove it, and go to the device mgr. app it reapears, so its safe to remove it, we wont need it as we never get any FOTA updates.


I would like to add the following :

Your access points are stored in C:\Private\10202be9\persists\cccccc00.cre. Just make a copy of cccccc00.cre, and restore it to your phone (or send it to another phone), restart your phone, and you have your access point settings back just the way they were when you made the backup.

Your bluetooth name is in C:\Private\10202be9\persists\10204dac.cre, your paired devices are in C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_100069CC_btregistry

The bookmarks of Symbian's built-in web browser are stored in C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_101FD685_BrowserBookmarks. db.

Calendar entries are stored in C:\Private\10003a5b\Calendar.

The cookies of Symbian's built-in web browser are in C:\Private\101f8530\cookies.dat. Restart your phone after restoring or transfering the cookies file. If you've told your browser to delete your cookies, there is no cookies.dat file in C:\Private\101f8530.

Your SMSs and mails from Symbian's built-in messaging application are stored in C:\Private\1000484b. If you've told your phone to store messages on your memory card, they are in E:\Private\1000484b. Copy the entire folder, and restore when needed.

The notes you write in Symbian's Notes application are stored in C:\Private\100012a5\DBS_101F8878_Notepad.dat.
If you can't delete or replace the file, it's because Symbian is using it. But there's a workaround for this problem: go to settings, data manager, memory, and select "back up phone memory" from the options menu. While your phone is making the backup, you can delete or replace the DBS_101F8878_Notepad.dat file.

Your profiles are stored in C:\Private\10202be9\persists\101f8798.cre. If you restore the backup, restart your phone.

T9 dictionary:
Your frequently used words in SMS and email are stored in C:\Predic\101F8615_F.dat. You don't even need to hack your phone to get into this folder.
