Ultimate use for J2ME: explore the file system

Now ain’t that cool – why hasn’t anybody done that before? Now that J2ME on mobile phones can finally leave the sandbox, why not go and have a look at the phone’s file system?

DEbrander does just that:

DEbrander Customizer is a J2ME™ Java™ application that gives you access to the internal filesystem on Motorola phones.

By installing DEbrander Customizer on your Motorola phone you are able to:

• Access the phone’s filesystem. Rename and delete files, cut and paste files across folders.

• Easily customize your phone. Replace existing system images and sounds with personalized images/sounds from your phone’s ‘picture’ and ‘audio’ folder.

• Set up Profiles. Define collections of files/ substitutes and replace/restore them all at once by the press of a button.

• Create Menu Profiles. Set up Profiles with different Motorola Menu Definition Files and instantly alter the order of the menu items.

I don’t have a Moto right now, but I spent the 2.99 EUR just to tell the developer I like the idea. Rock on. I wonder if the same idea would work on other phones as well.

And that’s not limited to branding – working on the phone’s file system opens up a whole new range of apps, like backing up your settings via GPRS and all kinds of other neat things.
