    You must have a "data.zip" with resolution of your device.

    At less, your device is 800x480.
    In "data.zip/ui_igo8/", you must have a directory "800_480".
    You can also modified "sys.txt" for your resolution :

    [rawdisplay]
    screen_x=800
    screen_y=480

    For features look at the instructions of your device or the manufacturer's website.

    Should have all of this:

    [interface]
    resolution_dir="800_480"
    vga=0

    [rawdisplay]
    highres=0
    screen_x=800
    screen_y=480
    class="landscape"

    No one is going to see you request in a thread re resolution Its the wrong TOPIC.
