    CERTIFICATE MANDITORY FOR THEMES?

    I have just finished making a theme for the n80 and now for the first time in theme history, the program will not allow me to publish the theme without a certificate.

    certificates i have heard, are very expensive and i do not want to buy one. i dont even know where to buy one or who i have to ask for this.

    this is very bad for developers who are small individuals or small companies. to make a theme, it should not be required.

    is there any way around this so i can continue to make themes for my friends and family and collegues for free?

    You may not "wide-spread it" without certification, but you can use it.... you and a well-controlled number of users ... via developer certificate

    If I give you one IMEI will you send me a copy of the theme?

    For Themes the sis packages only need to be self-signed... this can be done with a tool supplied with the theme package and at no cost. See Appendix A of the S60 Theme Studio Artists Guide 3.0 for more information (It's part of the Theme Studio Download)

    Re: CERTIFICATE MANDITORY FOR THEMES?

    Hi all,

    In theory, self-signing should work fine as Bill said, but I've got some problems with it on a 3250 which were only solved by signing the theme with a Developer Certificate from Symbian, that can be obtained for free (to 1 IMEI).

    For most devices, though, self-signing is ok.

    Does Theme for N80 need a Download descriptor for download

    I tired to point directly to a SIS file on a URL and download and the installation fail.

    The SIS theme files is verified working as it could install if I IRDA it to the phone

    Thanks for any help

    If you can install it via IRDA or Bluetooth, but not from the web, you probably have to add the correct mime type (application/vnd.symbian.install) to the server configuration.
