Stay tuned, we will get you details soon!
Are you sure about that UIQ3 thing? I have no experience with it, but it was based on Symbian OS 9.1, with its platform security included. Symbian was not Nokia that time.Compared to UIQ 3, Nokia's insistence on every app being signed and preventing easy access to developer certs without paying US$200 per year for a Publisher Id is a real barrier for casual developers, you know. And, since UIQ 3 seemed to be accepted by operators, it's not a restriction that can be blamed on them -- I'm not really sure why Nokia enforces such a restrictive practice on devices.
I ve got 1 account for normal signing on symbiansigned.com
and another one on nokia.symbiansigned.com for signing apps with allfiles capability.
Should both account be merged ?
How to perform it ?
Thanks in advance,
I guess #16 is for you
Anyway, sounds like the new iteration of Symbian Signed will be a bit better, which is good news.
It is a different thing that self-signed applications can not be distributed via the Ovi Store. But it is somehow normal, especially since Ovi arranges the signing for free, and this way users do not face warnings about untrusted applications.
Which is the validity of the DeveloperCertificate in the New Symbian Signed? Still 3 years?
Are the new DevCert really associated the UIDs also, as written at the link below?
"To request new development certificate, you must request for UIDs of your applications first, if not it does not allow you to request for development certificate, because in the new portal, development certificate associated with application UIDs also."
Because I just made a test, but the restrictions on the UIDs were not applied:
- downloaded the new DevCert (Valid from: 21/06/2011 Issued by:Ixonos Developer CA)
- downloaded X-Plorer http://www.lonelycatgames.com/downlo..._3rd_1_53.sisx
- usigned it, and signed using my own DevCert.
- successfully installed on the device without any problems...
So, it seems to me that the DevCert is not associated to the UIDs...
Can someone provide some clarifications?
I noticed that the DevCert contains the UIDs list, but apparently, the installer ignores that field... (OID = 1.2.818.104.22.1686522.214.171.124.4)
(Tested on N8 fw14)

X-Plorer has an unprotected UID (0xA000BCD), such ownership requirement more likely applies to UID-s from the protected range.
I tried again on another app with a protected UID and restrictions were successfully applied.
About the validity period of the DevCert, I just checked and it is still 3 years...Which is the validity of the DeveloperCertificate in the New Symbian Signed? Still 3 years?
Is there any way to disconnect the account with the wrong publisherID?
