Since OPDA stopped issuing certificate and key to sign symbian applications, several ways emerged to hack symbian phones. You can hack your symbian phone permanently using a cooked firmware or the last one I posted a week ago which works on Nokia and Sony Ericsson phones as well. This post comprises of two different symbian hack method without the need for key and certificate. You don’t need to flash your phone too as the whole operation will be carried out on your phone.
I have to commend Coderus for this methods though. It’s not my original work, just sharing with you. If one method doesn’t work for you, i suggest you try the other one.
1. DrWeb AV Security Hole
i. To access private folders, you need to connect your phone to PC or insert your memory card to a card reader.
-If you’re going to use E:\ (mass storage, or memory card in devices without mass storage memory), download QuarantineDriversLDD.zip
-If you’ll be using F:\ (memory card in devices with mass storage memory), you should download QuaranineF.zip
ii. Depending on the one you downloaded, unpack the archive to the chosen drive
iii. Download and install DrWeb6 for symbian
iv. Launch DrWeb and go to Options > Quarantine
vi. Go Options > Restore. RomPacther drivers now in C:\sys\bin directory
vii. Download and install RomPacther+ 3.1 Lite
viii. Launch RomPatcher+ and apply Open4all patch. This gives you have access to write in all system folders. Apply Install server patch. This allows you to install unsigned applications without certificate restrictions.
ix. If you’re using Symbian ^3, copy this install server yo C:\sys\bin
x. If you still get the red cross showing and can’t install unsigned applications, try the install servers on this post.
2. Norton Security Symbian Hack
i. Download NortonHack.zip
ii. Install NortonSymbianHack.sisx and launch
iii. Go Options > Anti-Virus > Quarantine list
iv. Next, go to Options > Restore and accept prompt
v. Exit application and delete from Application manager (Symantec Symbian Hack). Also delete C:\shared\ directory
vi. Install RomPatcherPlus_3.1.sisx from hack archive
vii. Launch and apply the following patches:
- Open4all for full access to file system including system folders
- Installserver for installing any unsigned applications. If you get a red cross showing, get the right install server from this post.
-Set patches to auto if needed (Options > Add to auto)
I’m sure either of these methods will work for you. If one isn’t working properly, you should perform a hard rest or restore factory settings and try the other one. Share the post if you find it helpful.
