might have noticed that 2008 is a
and while you (and even Microsoft's Outlook Mobile) noticed it, it seems
and ACE Windows
Mobile smartphones have overseen it. As a matter of fact, Samsung's Calendar
Home screen plugin, for the above mentioned devices, shows the wrong date as of
March 1, 2008; the day after February 29 and since Samsung's Calendar ignores
the 29th, date displays one day prior to the correct date until the end of
this year. At the end it means that, if you are using/used the the Calendar
plugin, you will get the wrong date displayed for the rest of the year (on the
left the wrong calendar, on the right the correct):
Please note that this is a Home screen issue only and it neither affects the
devices real time clock nor any other calendar functions, including Outlook
Mobile, but it's a cosmetic issue of the Home screen plugin which makes it,
nevertheless, useless for the rest of the year.
Anyway, I've got my hands on a couple of patches, just small CAB files for
your device, which corrects the issue described above. So if you are either
Windows Mobile 6 upgraded BlackJack/SGH-i607 (the patch isn't working with
Windows Mobile 5.0) or a new BlackJack II/SGH-i617 or a recently released
ACE/SPH-i325 Windows Mobile Standard smartphone, you might want to install the
patch to get the Home screen issue fixed.
Also note that only North American smartphones are affected! Neither the
Samsung SGH-i320 nor the SGH-i600 needs this patch - so please don't install it
on any other devices than the one mentioned above!
Either download the appropriate CAB file from your PC, copy it to your device
and run it from there, or download it directly from your device (through
the::unwired's mobile site) and run it on your smartphone. As always, this patch
will need to be re-installed whenever completing a hard reset.
