    Inneractive ads on Nokia 501 emulator - extra permission query


    On Asha 501 emulator, either requesting loading of a banner ad or showing an interstitial ad results, in addition to query about connecting to internet, another permission query:

    (AppName) wants to read your personal data (contacts, appointments, and so on).

    Is this okay
    [Yes] [No]
    The query is not shown on the previous (Nokia SDK 2.0) emulator or Nokia Asha 310.
    Same JAR was loaded to both, Inneractive SDK version used by the app is inneractiveAdSDK-J2ME-v1.0.9.

    Any ideas why the query is shown on the 501?
    Would it still be shown to end users after the application is signed?

    Re: Inneractive ads on Nokia 501 emulator - extra permission query

    Turns out the Innearctive SDK didn't try to access any personal data - the prompt seems to be shown for any application that connects to internet via HTTP and asks for the response code. It can be reproduced as follows:

    // The following line shows the send and receive data prompt
    HttpConnection conn =  (HttpConnection)Connector.open("http://www.google.com", Connector.READ_WRITE);
    // The following line shows the "read personal data" prompt
    int responseCode = conn.getResponseCode();
    Emulator version: 1.1316.1, Date: 2013-04-29 16:50:11. According to some forum posts, there's a newer version of the emulator available. I just ran SDK updater a few days ago, when it notified of an update, but seems like the emulator didn't get updated.
