S60 has been hacked once again!

Finally. It's happened, my friends. All of you with 'unhackable' firmwares, read on.

None of this would have been possible without the great work by DeltaFox and FCA00000!

What you'll need:
-A strong certificate, like the ones that OPDA give out. If you don't already know how, check out my guide HERE on how to get one.

*Please read through the instructions atleast once before starting the procedure*

Download THIS zip file and extract it to your computer. Open the 'HelloOx' folder and sign every sis file within the folder.

1)Install 'HelloOX.1.03.Unsigned' to your phone's internal memory. If you're getting any certificate errors during the installtion it either means that you haven't signed the application or the certificate you used isn't good enough. Remember, OPDA provide the correct certificates.

2)Open HelloOx from your phone's Applications folder

Wait until it tells you that it's finished (takes about 1 minute).

If you wish, you can uninstall HelloOx once it's finished.

That's it. You're done!

If you have a Feature Pack 2 device for example a N96 or N85, you'll need to sign your unsigned applications with the certificate and key files in the archive named 'Leftup_CertKey' which is inside the HelloOx zip that you downloaded.

If you have a preFP2 device like the N95 or N73, you can now enjoy installing unsigned apps without ever having to worry again.

    Mr-X I love you!!!!!! Without you my phone would be so boring man!

    Thank you so much for this i've been waiting for so long for it

    THANK YOU!!!

  2. Mr-X

    I'm happy to have helped ;)

    Mr-x, if I have a hacked phone already (N82 V21), can I skip the signing part? As far as I know, if I update to V30 or V31 with the hack already installed, I'll be still able to install unsigned apps, right? What do you think?

  4. Mr-X

    Anonymous, yes. What I recommend that you do is to create sys\bin in your Y drive and then paste installserver in there. I'm not sure if the N82 has a Y drive, so if it doesn't then just paste installserver in C:\sys\bin and update as usual. Hopefully UDP will preserve it for you.

    Good luck!

    any progress on fp2 devises?

  6. Mr-X

    Yes, this *should* work on all Nokia devices now (for accessing system files, not installing unsigned apps) if you want to install unsigned apps on your FP2 device, you'll have to wait for a new custom installserver.exe to be made

    i have a 5320XM 3.26

    this solution is not working for me:/

    when i try to install mapdrives,it says required application access not granted .

    what should i do?

    (i cant sign it with my opda cert. signers wants a key password,but i dont have one.without pass,the signed file wont works.)

  8. Mr-X

    @Anonymous, I recommend that you apply for another OPDA certificate. It's a crucial part of this hack.

  9. Mihai

    I had to pay for a downgrade for my N95, after I upgraded it to 31.0.014. It is good that a new hack is discovered. I think I will remain with my current firmware (21.0.016). I still don't understand how will there be a Y drive (as a mapping) after upgrading the firmware...

  10. Mr-X

    @Mihai, thanks for pointing that out actually! Some phones don't have the Y drive but with Modo you can instead paste it into C:\Sys\Bin :)

  11. Ronny

    Hi Ya all i tried all what was said ,ether got certificate error or not supported.please anyone did that on n95 8gb v31.0.015,just please post anything,thx

    i can install modo>>>application access granted.>>>what can i do??

  19. Mr-X

    Have you got an OPDA certificate like I linked to? Self-signing with Symbian Signed won't work.

    You're getting these errors because the certificate you used doesn't have enough capabilities. If you used an OPDA certificate, you'll have no problems.

    Apply for an OPDA cert and then try again, Asenvip.

  20. Yagiza

    Yeah! I did it 2 days ago and it worked for my E90!
    So, let's wait for the new firmwares. I'm sure they are coming soon.
    On Symbian 9.4 (S60 5th Edition) this hack won't work 'cause brand new installserver.exe is used. It can be started from Z drive only!

  21. Mr-X

    Thanks for letting us know, Yagiza. That sounds like bad news, it seems Nokia were prepared for the possibility of a new hack this time. I still have faith in our dedicated community, though, so I'm sure something will be figured out soon enough.

    Thanks for commenting!

    Hi . Does this currently work n 6220c? i mean i have opda to sign apps at the moment so that isnt a problem but want to do stuff like remove camera shutter sound etc which CANNOT be done any other way .firmware is 3.46 im using . thanks in advance.

  32. Mr-X

    @Anonymous: It should work on your 6220c but I don't currently have one to test this on. I'm not sure if all patches will work on FP2 devices but there's a chance that a good number of them will.

    Please try the hack and tell us how it goes!

    Nice try, but doesnt work for me (N95 8GB 31.0.015)

    Here is a tutorial that works on mine and i think for n82 too!

    I didnt write it myself but it WORKS! Thanks @ all who help to make it possible!

    How to hack:

    1 - Install "Jbak TaskMan"
    3 - Install Signed "MapDrives v1.00 DiskAdmin" then Install it in your phone.
    4 - Copy the file "MapDrives.txt" to the root of the memory card(replace the existing one)
    5 - Copy "Installserver" to the folder E:/Hack/sys/bin/ (create the folders)
    6 - Run Jbak TaskMan --> press '#' button --> find the program "Map Drive" --> click Menu(left softkey) --> Program Rules --> Check "Autostart" checkbox
    7 - Restart.(If all of a sudden something went wrong - Remove Memory Card, reboot, read the article again)
    8 - Remove "MapDrives"
    9 - Install "MapDrive_Y"
    10 - Then run the program "MapDrives"
    11 - Install "Modo"
    12 - Take Installserver, which we downloaded, and put it in the Y:/sys/bin/ through "Modo"
    13 - Now try instally any UNSIGNED file, if error occurs, then run the "Modo" again and copy the file to "C:\sys\bin"(it must be accessible now with write permissions)

    If, however, that it did not succeed, remove all MapDrive folder Hack, reboot, rereads the article, and do it again.

    Hi Mr-X, First thanks for this tutorial well done.
    However I've got a problem on my N95 8GB V31.0.15.
    When I run HelloOX, it hangs on "Applying patches". I've tried 3 times and waiting 10 minutes each time but no results.
    So can you tell me what's wrong ?

    It doesn't seem to work with Nokia E51 v300.34.56
    It just hangs during applying open4all (or something like that)
    I've acquired a certificate and signed the apps, installed just fine, but when I start HelloOX, it gets to open4all and just stays like that.
    Tried after a factory reset (*#7370#) with a clear phone, but still nothing.
    Any help?
    Pretty please?

  55. Dali

    It's working for me. I'm using E66 FW 110.07.126
    For you guys who's dealing with "Applying Patch" for more than 1 minute, try to turn off any connection established (Eg, Bluetooth, Wifi).
    It was happened to me and after I turned off my bluetooth, HelooX finished successfully

    Hi Mr.X

    I have got the OPDA certificate and key as you suggested. I have transferred the files and HelloOX into my phone and used SignSis to sign HelloOx with my certificate. When I try to install, it says "access not granted". I'm not sure what the reason is. My phone is N95 8GB 31.0.015. Hope you can provide me with a solution.

  83. JASE

    For all of you with applying patches hanging: When you install in memory card it will hang. Installing in helloox in phones internal memory will solve the problem.

    Fof all who get stuck on applying patches, you must signd 4 files which are installed by helloOX , located on mass memory,in HelloOX folder (or memory card) , and than replace the unsigned files with the signed one, and be careful to have the same name.If stucks again , cancel it and try again and than 100% it will work.
