Add iSync support for the Sony-Ericsson W880i Phones
The Sony-Ericsson W880i is not supported on iSync 2.4. The workaround, as usual, includes modifying the metaclasses. This time, however, the info.plist file should also be modified.

Just duplicate the SonyEricsson-W810.phoneplugin (located in /Applications » iSync » Control-click and show package contents » Contents » Plugins » ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice » Contents » Plugins), change the info.plist and metaclasses.plist entries in the duplicate to w880, and you must also change the com.apple.usb.vendorid-modelid to 0xD068 in order for USB to work.

Rename the duplicated folder to SonyEricsson-W880.phoneplugin. You can just create PhonePlugins within your top-level Library, or place it with the others as bove. Don't forget to make your black or silver metal TIFF icon.

Leopard 10.5.1 Note:

I had to delete the original "SonyEricsson-W810.phoneplugin" to get my W880i detected. (duplicate identifier?)

Hello, quick newb question;

I'm assuming that this holds true for 890 too...

what is the meaning of the USB ID/where do I find it?

Secondly, making a Tiff Icon. I'm assuming that scanning the phone into software would be a good start, but what sort of pixel dims am i going to want? does it matter?

sorry, until now i've been happily 'just using' my mac...
