    any geniuses wanna take a crack at this?

    It's always gotten to me that you can't customize shortcut keys on BB. All those 3rd party apps are a waste of time and memory. I don't want to have to open an app to have a shortcut. That's not a shortcut. And no I don't want to click the convenience key 3 times. That's not a convenience. Take qsms for example. Does anyone know how they wrote that code to make 'Q' work as a shortcut? If so can that part of the code be written into another app. For example, can you edit Beejive's files to use this shortcut? Berrycoder has shown proof that it can be done when creating an app, but could files be edited by us once an app has been created? Any thoughts?


    We pull batteries, swap bezels, break contracts, and stay up all night. We change OSes like we change underwear. If our phones could make us fly, we still wouldn't be satisfied. We're cut from a different cloth. A better breed. We are BlackBerry.

    Unfortunately the code that is written is in the cod file which is digitally signed. We cannot access the cod file because in doing so we corrupt the file. Even if we could re-sign it the file would still be corrupt and thus no funtioning. It is something the creator of the file would have to give as an option before it is something we could enable. Since RIM's OS is one of the most secure mobile operating systems on the market I would gather that this is somehting they prefer not to take place. Just a thought though

    Thanks BBC, always on point. And Wayne if I want my BB to have the same functionality that a tmo sidekick has had for 4+ years, then yes I want a mile when given a foot lol

    dang, I was gonna try and put some random rabbits and stuff in the code so they pop up at embarrassing times.... not really, I couldn't figure that stuff out if I had to, but BBC's explanation made a ton of sense. Is there a way to create an application that could do the same thing as was requested? that way, it could run in the background and serve as a proxy for the shortcuts. IDK, maybe I should go back to my pint of Guinness....
    Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?

    I'm not sure about the code thing but I'd like to know more about this berrycoder you mentioned.
    Has anyone been on crackberry? It sounds good but I haven't had the chance to check it out yet.

    QuickLuanch is the easiest way to do shortcuts, from what I've heard.
