    This thread is for comments, support and links to articles of Flash Lite on the S60 Phones.

    Re: Flash Lite Packaging for the S60 phones

    It's worth noting that FL apps for S60 devices (SIS files) that are packaged with the Adobe Mobile Packager tool will not be accepted into the Ovi publish intake system. A Flash developer can use any other Symbian packaging tool to take their SWF files and any other assets and generate a SIS file.

    Hi David,
    This address (http://www.swfpack.com/fn/index.php) is the same as in Flash packager

    You will still need to sign these using the flash online signing package at
    Flash packager which will need the Publisher ID

    There is a Wiki article Step by Step instructions to Express signing

    There is lots of useful information on Flash packager in webinarPackaging, DRM, and Distributing Flash Lite Content 2009-3-18

    Question Re: Flash Lite Packaging for the S60 phones

    Hi,

    I've tried to use Flash lite library instructions from

    http://library.forum.nokia.com/index...2668E5DCD.html

    to create a stub application. All goes well until I try to run app installed using the sis on the Nokia N97 -- I get this error message:

    FlashStubExample: unable to execute file for security reasons
    The swf packaged in the sis is very simple and simply displays some text on screen. Anybody got ideas how to resolve this?

    -- Pasi

    PS. I know of Forum Nokia Online Flash lite packager - and want to create the stub application sis myself in this case.

    Hi Pasi,
    There are several things. Firstly when you have finished this is an self signed sis file which will *NOT* be accepted by Ovi store because the install must install without prompts to users. see post in this thread http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/fo...11&postcount=4. This means Symbian Express signing of the file.

    N97 is getting the error because this uses the default (fully signed) sis files. To make the self signed work you must switch off application signed requirements.

    Finally you may have had an error building try using the Adobe mobile packager at Adobe download packager page

    see the Forum Nokia Wiki article How to upgrade the FlashLite player using Adobe distributable player solution. Which has a section of creating an App

    Question on Flash security should be directed
    to the
    Flash on Nokia board
    who probably give you the best answers
    Jim

    I know there are signing requirements for Ovi Store, however at this point I'm not trying to get the sis accepted by Ovi store, simply want to verify my Flash swf works as an sis application on a particular phone, e.g. installs and runs on phone memory and memory card.

    Can you be a bit more specific here, where and how exactly do I switch off application signed requirements? In the phone itself?

    I'm was not using Adobe mobile packager because of Bill Perry's post you referred to in your response; however I might give it a try at this point just to see if there is a difference to Forum Nokia Flash lite packager (which works, but resulting sis has a few issues that I'm currently trying to find workarounds for).

    Yes, I know of Flash lite board, I'll repost the original question there, or maybe on the feedback for Flash lite developers library board.

    thanks,

    Hi Pasi,
    You can still use the Adobe packager output. The unsigned package is output as well as self signed. The unsigned Adobe package is used for Symbian Express signing and as shown in the wiki article is the easiest to use.

    N97 user setting, see page 136 of N97 user manual
    -----
    Application manager settings
    Select Menu > Settings and Application mgr..
    Select Installation settings and from the following:
    ● Software installation — Select whether Symbian
    software that has no verified digital signature can
    be installed.

    ● Online certificate check — Select to check the
    online certificates before installing an application.
    ● Default web address — Set the default web
    address used when checking online certificates
    -----

    The N97, happens to be the most popular app download device and the User Manual is available here

    UPDATE on Flash security for Flash 3
    Flash Security on stub

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Thumbs up Re: Flash Lite Packaging for the S60 phones

    Solved, thanks to Jim's link on Flash 3 security. Simply putting the swf file in 'trusted' folder removed the error that I encountered on Nokia N97.

    In terms of Flash lite library example code on packaging, this means appending '\\trusted\\' as last part of swf path in the stub.cpp and '\trusted\' in PKG file. After that, the swf played without error from signed sis file on Nokia N97.

    Re: Flash Lite Packaging for the S60 phones

    Hi,

    I got hold of the earlier available Adobe Mobile Packager (the free version). Now the problem is that I see the default packager icon on my phone for my Flash Lite application. Also, the packager does not allow me to select my application icon. I have placed the desired icon in the output folder along with its svg; doesn't help either.
