TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR OWN PHONE
tell your Nokia, Sony Ericsson, or other Symbian phone that you're the boss

 
 

Phones that run Symbian are like Fort Knox: they won't let you see all the interesting stuff in the system folders, and you can't install Symbian programs unless they've passed the censors at Symbian Signed. Even the capabilities of signed programs are limited to what the powers that be at Symbian HQ allow them to do. And Open Signed Online takes forever, if it works at all.

Symbian won't even let you change program icons or let you switch off that annoying noise that your camera makes every time you shoot a picture.

Even worse, you can't even access the files and folders that contain your messages and your calendar entries on your phone, which means that the horrible piece of bloatware called PC Suite is the only way to back up your messages and calendar.

The draconian restrictions of Symbian are like not having the keys of your own house.

But Symbian has been hacked : ) With a few modifications you can give yourself full access to your phone's system folders, install programs without having to beg Symbian Signed for the keys to your phone, change icons and menus, switch off the camera shutter sound, and make backup copies whenever and whereever you want without having to connect your phone to a computer that runs PC Suite. Now Mac and Linux users can finally back up their data!

Tame Symbian and tell your phone what to do instead of the other way 'round.

If you want to update your firmware, or if your phone can't be hacked, read this and curse Nokia.


• The easy way: Norton, DrWeb, TrendMicro, UMU (Nokia and SonyEricsson with S60v3, S60v5, Symbian^3)

NEW Hack S60v3, S60v5, and Symbian^3 with antivirus software
   You don't need to sign anything, so there's no need to get a developer certificate.

• The risky way: Flash your firmware (for Nokia phones with Symbian^3)

You can hack Symbian phones that run Symbian^3 (Nokia C7, Nokia N8, etc.) by flashing the firmware. For info about Symbian^3 firmware mods:

• The old skool way: Hack Symbian S60v3 (older Nokia and Samsung phones) and UIQ (older SonyEricsson phones)
