Nokia are at it again, N82's V30 unhackable

Earlier this year, Nokia successfully blocked FCA00000's python S60 v3 exploit... For a few hours. FCA00000 replied with his own version of HelloCarbide - the most powerful .Sis file that has ever existed in the history of Symbian. However, the release of the Nokia N82's V30 firmware marks the beginning of a new chapter in this cat and mouse game between Nokia and FCA00000. One man challenging a company of 117,212 employees.

HelloCarbide no longer works with the N82. There are some claims from some members of Symbian-Freak that following this update method will keep the hack working. I cannot confirm if it works as I don't have a N82 but it should be worth a try, right?

How to supposedly keep the hack on your V30 N82:
1) Format your V20 N82.
2) Hack your N82 using HelloCarbide and copy installserver.exe over to C:/Sys/Bin
3) Back up your phone using Nokia PC Suite.
4) Update your firmware
5) Restore using Nokia PC Suite.

If that doesn't work then you'll be stuck with a standard, locked down N82 until FCA00000 (hopefully) finds another exploit.

    Hopefully, if FCA00000 finds a working exploit he won't release it right away because if he does that, the N96's (and probably other models too) firmware will get patched immediately against his new method. I guess there will be around 3 or 4 major firmware updates for the N96 having the first or the second one include a protection without a possible backdoor would not be much fun.

    Mr.X, I tried the hack for newbies given at below link

    I use Nokia N80, which is in 9.1 pack and I did all the steps mentioned and installed the .exe in sys/bin. However now whenever I try to install any file I get the message "File Corrupted". Also I am not able to use any existing application (like messaging, contacts etc) unless I restart the mobile.Before using the hack given above I used to get Certificate error. Please help

    Sorry people but it seems that this time 'round FCA00000 is having a bit of trouble. However, I have faith that he will eventually succeed and when he does you can be sure to find the details right here.
