Cracking it open: we want to be free! A new step forward.

hey guys πŸ™‚

This post is about a new mod which I have just finished and tested πŸ˜‰

It will obviously be available in the coming i8910 firmware, n2o5!

What is it about?

Well, we all know the problems we’ve always had with sis packages…there has always been the need to edit packages, wait for modded packs made by expert users, each time a new version of a software came out…

why all this mess? Because softwares which are not samsung’s (Nokia’s, SonyEricsson’s) are signed with high level security certificates by Nokia and SonyEricsson…

this means that if you want to install a Nokia or SE software which updates the system files, such as ovimaps (AudioSrv,..) , FlashLite, Java, fring, you need to edit the package and use the unsigned version of it, because otherwise you wouldn’t be able to install it. Or some other times you could get the infamous “COMPONENT IS BUILT-IN” error message, which we all hate (don’t you? πŸ™‚ )

Well, this problem has not come to an end thanks to the new mod I have created?

What was the solution of previous modders to this problem?

HyperX-like: “Let’s replace samsung certificates with nokia’s certificate, to be able to install nokia’s packages”, Β in this case you lose samsung’s certificates and you gain nokia’s ones, it’s not bad, but it’s a mod that kills the stability of the system, which could need samsung certificates to install some needed components.

What is the solution I found?

Simply put, I have created a whole new “Certifcate Store” (i.e. the file in which all certificates are saved) which includes certificates from ALL THE MAIN VENDORS, BEING NOKIA, SAMSUNG, AND SONY ERICSSON! πŸ˜€

You don’t lose any capability of the system (this happens with the known mods instead), you just GAIN NEW POSSIBILITIES!
Thanks to this mod, you’ll be able to download EVERY NOKIA SOFTWARE (or SE’s one) AND INSTALL IT STRAIGHTAWAY FROM THE OFFICIAL SOURCE (OviSuite or whatelse), using it in conjunction with another rompatcher patch I’ll release, WITHOUT ANY NEED TO MOD IT.

READ AGAIN, I’M TALKING ABOUT INSTALLING SOFTWARE FROM NOKIA, SAMSUNG, OR SE’s SOFTWARES USING THE OFFICIAL PACKAGES, I’M NOT GIVING A SOLUTION TO THE FACT THAT SOME NOKIA SOFTWARE DOES NOT START (ovimaps 3.06 for example)…BECAUSE THAT IS A DIFFERENT PROBLEM AND IT IS APP-SPECIFIC πŸ˜‰

 

THIS MOD CAN BE APPLIED TO ALL SYMBIAN PHONES (Samsung’, Nokias’, SEs’) so spread the word wherever you like πŸ™‚

It is a great step forward imho, because it eliminates the need of package editing, being able to install everything directly on the phone! You won’t be waiting for modified versions from modders anymore! (unless the problem of the app you’re trying to use is not installation-related)

 

Cheers!!! πŸ˜€

  1. hi there sorry for being off topic but im wondering if there is any way that i can disable the tone in the i8910 recorder. not the call recording the standalone recording app that beeps when you start and stop recording. i cant seem to find anything

      1. err, I think he was refering to built-in voice recorder application that “beeps” whenever you start a new recording. That and few othger sounds are yet to be found, but if they are in ROM files, there’s a no go re this issue.

  2. HI EVERYBODY! I WOULD LIKE TO INFORM YOU THAT N205 FAILED AND IT WILL NEVER BE RELEASED. Thank u for your support financially and spiritually. May be i will move to Android

  3. Great now theres more idiots on here, Faenil please ignore these wankers and keep up the good work. Im looking forward to the N205 when it comes out. As to the other wankers on here that are posting stupid comments, get a life fools or do us all a favour and piss off

  4. Just don’t give them any kind of attention, it’s easy enough… and my advice to Faenil is to get logins back again… whoever cares to post here should be registered and traceable.

  5. Faenil always uses Final Fantasy VIII picture when posting comments. Anyone else posing as him is just a lonely loser.

    Good on you faenil. Hope your studies are going well.
