    First i have to say i've pinched this from Detman101 who, with his help, solved the issue of unwanted files appearing in the Mediaplayer video list. Cheers fella!

    However i thought i'd upadate it for the Storm boards as i know theres a fair few of us wanting to do this. Also this is really for video files only as you can lock your pics away within the Storms OS.

    The first thing you'll need is the filelock.jar which you can download HERE!. You'll need to register first though chaps, just your name/email/phone number or at least i did. Now you can download to either the phone or pc & both have worked for me. If you download to pc you'll need to connect your Storm to you pc & copy the file over to the Storms memory. Once you've downloaded it click on the .jar file & it'll go through the usual download/install process as with all apps.

    Then when you've done that you'll find the file in your Download folder on your homepage unless you've moved it. Click on the small pink key & set up your program password. Now all you have to do is browse through your folders & lock the one with all your movies in . You have to perform a "yes" to The application FileLock has attempted to open local content. Would you like to allow this? to EACH individual file open/lock in a folder but you can just unlock (same process) individual files after that. There is a way to stop this via permissions but i haven't got it to work?

    The end result is all unwanted files are no longer in the media player list of content, so the wife/kids will never know

    I prefer just to hide. No one ever goes through the effort to unhide them. And if the person even knows how I jush don't let them use my phone.

    I have some files hidden on my phone right now, so I am not speaking from a "holier than thou" perspective, but I would say hiding porn from your wife is the beginning of a big problem--if you want a solid relationship, you don't do things like this. And if you don't want your kids to see something, then you have no business having it yourself, IMO. Just my .02.

    So how does one lock pics within the storm OS? Are they only hidden or are they actually password locked?

    If I had a wife and we liked porn.. why on earth would I not be aloud to have it if I didn't want my kids to see it?

    There is plenty of things that you don't let your kid see that your aloud to. For example rated R movies..

    adults watch them all the time and don't let there kids watch them..

    so your statement is skewed..

    As I said, in my original reply. this is "my opinion" (that's what IMO means in case you missed it or you didn't know). If it's not yours, then great--it's one of things that makes us different. And personally, if it means not subscribing to your belief structure, then I prefer to be "skewed".

    One, my wife watches porn with and without me. This is just my personal thing when I'm away or in the spare room. I snore apparently.

    Two, lighten up its only an app to help peeps out not a reason to discuss moral do's or don'ts of porn.

    Three, no I believe you can only hide pics in the OS. Call it a typo on my part

    Four, to the one guy who said thanks. Your welcome, as are you all

    Five, you can't use the OS to hide video files. That's why I spent so long looking for an answer. All I've found so far is this!

    Jeez get off your moral high horse. This is an adult gadget, used by adults who sometimes do adult things.

    Let's not drag a simple help topic into an argument, please!

    DazT, thanks for the info.

    To the guy with the "V" Avatar, all you "V" fans must come from the same mold. There's a guy with your M.O. on some gun forums that uses the nutcase from "V" as an avatar. Wouldn't be surprised if you're the same guy.

    Daz, so when you lock away the video it and it disapears from the list, how do you view it? Where does it go?

    I understand that its your opinion but in most peoples believe patterns you have to consider when raising a kid parent's do things that they don't want there kid to see/have/hear reguardless of whether its porn or watching the simpsons on television. For example.. I play battlefield bad company on my ps3 its basically a war style game first person shooter action and shooting on the screen. I would never let my 3 year old niece or 4 year old cousin see or play that.. so is it bad moral's for me to have it if I didn't want my kid to see it?

    I am not trying to get into a argument I just want to understand the reasoning behind that?


    (this really isn't a attack on you) most of my personal morals stem from being a pretty religous person (i don't want to fight about religion either haha) im just curious


    Edit: I wanted to add that the reason behind not wanting them to see that type of game is I am at a point were it wont effect my lifestyle/and or pattern. But it could influence there behavior or patterns.

    I have zero interest in defending my world views. Because at the end of the day, we all know the difference between right and wrong. All I can do is point out the glaringly obvious elephant in the room and let you decide what to do about it.

    Morality laws exist because we break them--not the other way around.

    The files are still stored on your BB fella, if you hit media - BB button - Explore you'll still find them but they won't be playable by you or more importantly anyone else. You have to go back to the File lock icon and enter your password and unlock the file again.

    You can always rename the files to be extra safe!

    This would prob be a pain for multiple images but works well for half a dozen movies.

    If anyone can work out how to set permissions for File lock I and a whole load of peeps would be grateful.

    Greetings,

    This application was not originally intended for hiding pornography, though it does function for that necessity. The program was originally needed for people who work in "Sensitive" positions to lock and hide data from possible snooping.

    V/R,
