I'm sure this must have been asked before, but I can't find it so if I just missed a thread, please link to it for future reference.
I am trying to figure out which Capabilities are covered by the Symbian Signed Open Signed Offline method. Right now I do not have a Publisher ID and am debating getting one. If it can give me access to Capabilities CommDD and NetworkControl, then I will purchase one.
My confusion comes from conflicting documents. This document:
and this page
say that only 3 Capabilities [AllFiles, TCB, DRM] are limited by Device Manufacturer. However, the second link says 4 other capabilities [CommDD, DiskAdmin, NetworkControl, MultimediaDD] are "Accessible via Certified Signed" only. The first link says those 4 others are available to Open Signed (with Publisher ID).
To further confuse the issue, from the SymbianSigned website itself, I found this document:
which says that all 7 of the aforementioned Capabilities require Phone Manufacturer Approval.
Anyone able to clarify this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
