Hello,

I am having problems with some friends on my list since the appear
offline when they are online. I did try to delete and rerequest
authorization nothing changes. I am using icq2000b it did not happen
with icq99 before.

I read it is possible to get authorization without asking using a hex
editor. Please tell me how can this be done.

Thanks,

Mario

Dear Readers,
 
Please find below how to merge ICQ Contact Lists and avoiding the re-authorization nightmare.  For just adding people without the authorization use Part II, but before add the user to your AddressBook.
 
Sincerely,
Paco Capella
 
 
¹UIN - used to mean Universal Identification Number, recently it is being used to mean Universal Internet Number, it is also commonly referred to as the ICQ #.
 
 
 
Merging Lists without the Authorization Nightmare
 
 
1.  Requirements.
 
    a.  You need a Hex-Editor such as Hex Workshop v3.10 (May 31 2000) Copyright © 1995-2000 BreakPoint Software, Inc.; E-Mail in...@bpsoft.com; URL:  http://www.bpsoft.com, Price: $49.95 USD.
 
    b.  Your imported and exported ICQ AddressBook files needs to belong to the same ICQ client, dll version, and build.
 
 
2.  Overview.
 
    a.  The process of merging contact lists consist of two parts: one exporting and importing AddressBooks and another consisting in editing user (RESU) records in the UIN.dat file.
 
    b.  Note that the string "RESU" is "user" backwards.  It will have some meaning later on.
 
    c.  If you UIN¹ is for example 12345678, then your UIN.dat file is 12345678.dat.
 
    d.  Depending of your ICQ client, version, and build, the location of your UIN.dat file will vary as shown in the following table:
 
 
This table applies to Microsoft Windows Operating Systems: Windows9x/NT4/2000/ME.
 

Client Application

Database Folder

ICQ98 (all clients, builds, and dll versions)

C:\Program Files\ICQ\DB

ICQ99a (all clients, builds, and dll versions)

C:\Program Files\ICQ\NewDB

ICQ99b (all clients, builds, and dll versions)

C:\Program Files\ICQ\DB99b

ICQ2000a (all clients, builds, and dll versions)

C:\Program Files\ICQ\2000a

ICQ2000b (all clients, builds, and dll versions)

C:\Program Files\ICQ\2000b

 
 
3.  The Process.
 
Part I:  Merging Two Contacts List
 
Notes: 
CLA => Contact List of UIN A synonym with ICQ AddressBook A or IABA
CLB => Contact List of UIN B synonym with ICQ AddressBook B or IABB
 
    a.  Start ICQ on UIN A.
    b.  Go to the ICQ AddressBook (IAB) and export it to a file.  Please remember the path and the filename.  ;)  This will be your CLA or IABA.
    c.  Switch to UIN B.
    d.  Go to the IAB and import the previously exported file.
    e.  Close ICQ.
    f.  Open your DBConvert.exe and repair/reindex your UIN B.
    g.  Open ICQ on UIN B.
    h.  Go to the IAB and export it to a file.  Plz remember path and filename.  This will be your CLB or IABB.
    i.  Switch to UIN A.
    j.  Import your previously exported CLB.
    k.  Close ICQ.
    l.  Open your DBConvert.exe and repair/reindex your UIN A.
 
 
Part II:  Bypassing the Re-Authorization Nightmare.
 
Use a Hex-Editor on your UIN.dat file and search for the string "RESU" and substitute the byte that follows to "02", that is, once you find the string "RESU" switch to the hex-frame and change the byte value as follows:
 
        Va           Va
From    lu   To      lu    
R E S U e    R E S U e  For users in:
==========   ========== ==================================
5245535503   5245535502 Awaiting Authorization
5245535505   5245535502 Not in List but in AddressBook
                        or user was never in Not in List
                        but you just added him/her
                        to your AddressBook.
5245535506   5245535502 Not in List (ICQ99a). You own
                        details and preferences in
                        ICQ99b and later clients.
524553550D   5245535502 Deleted?  I'm not sure, but it
                        seems to be deleted user records.
524553550E   5245535502 Previously this user was
                        Not in List, now the user has
                        some "History".

Hello Paolo,

Thanks a lot for your posting.

Then I have people in the waiting for authorization how can I make them authorized ? which part should I follow ?

Thanks,

Mario

I have only one contact list so no need to merge any right ?
 
 

 For just adding people without the authorization use Part II, but before add the user to your AddressBook. 

which one is the Address Book ? how do i know if some one is already in my address book ?

Please excuse me if I make stupid questions.

Thanks,

Mario

Instead of having to purchase a hex editor, you can use a trial version of Cygnus Hex Editor (search for it through google.com)

Hi Mario!
 
My name is not Paolo, it is Paco.  At any rate, the 2-part procedure does not deals with offline users of your contact list.  So, you would not use either part.
 
In the case of people Awaiting for Authorization, you will use Part II.  Have fun!
 
 
Regards,
Paco Capella

Um, sage advise, I guess, but surely if you don't want to spend a lot of
money on a Hex Editor there are plenty of FREEWARE ones out there. I use
A.X.E. 2.0 but a quick search on Download.com or Tucows will bring up a
nice list to choose from. Sure, it may be like comparing Wordpad with Word
but if I only wrote a letter once in a blue moon Wordpad would still do the
job (and a whole lot cheaper!)

That's perfect - I just never searched for a freeware one.
Like I said though - the trial version is free, but you don't get to keep it
forever!
I am sure that your one is more than sufficient - I had never even heard of a
hex editor before this, so I definitely do not claim to be an expert!

Cheers
Pierre

Hello!

To what should I substitute the byte that follows to "02"???

Hello,

for adding users without authorization, you say:


"Use a Hex-Editor on your UIN.dat file and search for the string
"RESU" and substitute the byte that follows to "02", that is, once you
find the string "RESU" switch to the hex-frame and change the byte value

as..."

...and then I only see a mixture between HTML-Text and some other Text
;-)

Could you tell me, WHAT I will have to change??

Thanks!
