    Want help regarding EzBoot...

    Hi all,

    i want my application to be auto started when i boot my phone.So i am using EzBoot (Boot Manager Application).I have downloaded the required sis file.

    I got all the required information about EzBoot on the following website

    http://www.newlc.com/EzBoot.html

    I created one sample application in carbide and follow the steps given on website.But i am not able to do it succesfully.I got confused in the paths..i guess..

    I just want to ask whether anybody already used this EzBoot concept in his own application???Or please anybody can help me after reading the steps on website..I tried a lot but not able to do it..

    Re: Want help regarding EzBoot...

    EzBoot works only for S60 2nd Edition and Series 80 devices while the Startup List Management API is only available for S60 3rd Edition.

    So, depending on the platform version you're working one one of the above solutions would not be available at all.

    Now, if you're still working with S60 2nd Edition there is an alternative to EzBoot, a Symbian API named Start-On-Boot Registration API

    hi ltomuta,

    i want auto startup functionality for series 60 3rd edition devices...So i should use startup Management API..right??But on that link it is mentioned that this API's can't be use for self signed applications.I am using self signing application only..So now what should i do?? EzBoot option is already ruled out for me as it works only for series 60 2nd edition,as said by u..R u sure EzBoot works only for series 60 2nd edition devices??

    Re: Want help regarding EzBoot...

    EzBoot is nothing but a recognizer so in theory it would work for S60 3rd Edition too (not S60 3rd Edition FP1 or later though) but it would require signing :) The NewLC page contains a release history so it is easy to check that no S60 3rd Edition release is available.

    There is no way around the Startup List Management API's limitation, an application must be signed in order to be allowed to start on boot. If this feature is critical for you then consider signing your application. If it is not critical then just forget about it and let the user start the application when he wants to use it.
