S60 Hacking: Nokia vs. Users - 1:2!

Image

In an attempt to prevent one of the most creative solution in the hacking/modding scene, Nokia has introduced new firmware versions for most of their S60 powered phones.

With the arrival of the newest firmware, Nokia successfully close the latest ROM Patcher on all updated S60 Phones.

Disabling the TRK application is actually quite smart move; especially consider that based on FCA?s info that is the only weaknesses over Symbian 3rd Edition because the core security system has not been broken. As a reaction, users have started to look for the new solutions to keep the ability for unlimited access even aft... .. .

[ADD] New hack for S60v3 users (15th Jun 2008)
[ADD] New method for installing unsigned apps (15th Jun 2008)


[New]*15 Jun 2008
ONLY for S60v3(Nokia) users(non UIQ based phones)
1. Install X-Plore, Run X-plore, press 0 and check first 4 boxes.Do NOT exit the application
2. Install HelloCarbide.sisx application on ur phone and run the application, now keep clicking yes(right soft key) until the application closes ,your phone is hacked!!! (by FCA00000)
3. Verify the hack by switching to X-plore and check if you can see the contents of C:/sys/ .
4. Application to turn security on and off (from phone)
for Nokia (n95 ,n82 ,n73 ,n80 etc.) .Now skip to step no.11

You will need certain softwares and a PC:

Nokia phones -> Cable drivers of nokia pc suite version 6.85 need to be installed, not 6.86
SE phones(P1i etc) -> use PC suite 1.4.4 or older
1. Download and Install ActivePython on your PC
2. Download and Install PySerial
3. The magic python script and TRK application
a.) for Nokia (n95 ,n82 ,etc.) + AppTRK / (for n73, n80 etc) + AppTRK (Thanks to FCA00000)
b.) for UIQ based (P1i , w960i etc.) (Thanks to swmail)
4. Application to turn security on and off (from phone)
a.) for Nokia (n95 ,n82 ,n73 ,n80 etc.) (Thanks to FCA00000)
b.) for UIQ based (P1i , w960i etc.) (Thanks to swmail)

The Real Part:

1. Install the AppTRK application on your phone's memory and start it, then in options>settings, select connection as USB.
2. Connect your phone to your PC via USB in PC Suite mode and then AppTRK will report connected on your phone
3. Go to Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager>Ports
OR in Windows Vista: Control Panel>System>Device Manager>Ports.
Note the COM Port your phone is using
4. Open the python script in notepad (the one downloaded in step 3 with .py extension)
5. Search "serial.serial" without quotes and then replace the numerical value in bracket with the value of your COM Port minus 1 i.e. if your port was 22 then replace it with 21.
6. Save the file
7. Run the script by simply double clicking it
8. Now if you see something like !!!!!!candidate!!!!!!! in the output window, then.....
congratulations now your phone is really yours!!

9. Now you can exit the AppTRK application.
10. Verify the hack with X-Plore, Run X-plore, press 0 and check first 4 boxes, see if you can explore c:/sys/
11. Now if you will reboot the phone you will have to reactivate the hack with above procedure OR to do it without PC do the following
12.a.) For Nokia :
I. copy CProfDriver_SISX.ldd from RAR downloaded in step 4a into C:\sys\bin
II. install CapsOn.sisx
III. install CapsOff.sisx
b.) For UIQ based
I. Copy patched trkdriver.ldd from rar downloaded in step 4b to c:\sys\bin\
II. Install CapsSwitch on your phone
13. Now you can switch security on and off without pc through these applications
CapsOff = Security OFF and do whatever you want to do with your phone :)
CapsOn = Restrictions ON :(


After this hack you'll be able to install unsigned applications without SymbianSigned

Note: This tutorial is same for all symbian OS 9 phones(n95,n82,n73,n8,P1i,w960i etc.) until'n'unless mentioned
So here's the HOWTO for installing unsigned applications on your Symbian phone after you have hacked it(CapsOFF) :-

[*Updated 15th Jun 2008] New method for installing unsigned apps:(BIG thanks to swmail)
1. Download the following file as per the OS of your phone:
a) For Symbian OS 9.1 based phones (like P1i etc)
b) For Symbian OS 9.2 based phones
2. copy the installserver.exe file from the archive to c:\sys\bin\ on your hacked mobile phone(capsOFF)
3. Now you can install any application wheather it is signed, unsigned, protected uid or has a unprotected uid!!!

OR

[OLD METHOD]
1. Download this rar file containing the certificate, the key and the authentication file for your phone. (Thanks to leftup of symbian freak)
2. Copy the file "00000001" to "C:\resource\swicertstore\dat\" on your phone and mark the file read-only from X-Plore or other similar file explorer. If the given directories do not exist , create them
3. So now your own authentication system is installed on your phone. Now you need to sign your sis files with the given certificate and key in the rar file.
4. For signing sis files (pc based method)(works for all Symbian OS 9 phones)
I) Download and install SignSis GUI on your PC
II) Select the given certificate and key(password is blank) given in 'the rar file you downloaded'
III) Select the file you need to sign and sign it and transfer it to your phone, install normally..

IV) Now you have the application installed with all its capabilities
------------------------------OR---------------------------------
4. Mobile based method(no need for a pc), works only for Nokia phones
I) Download and install MobileSigner on your phone
II) Open MobileSigner and select and sign the 'unsigned sis file' and MobileSigner will generate a signed sisx file in the same directory as the source file.
*if you have problem signing try "self-sign" option*
III) Install the generated sisx file and application will be having all its capabilities.


Enjoy :)))) :D
