2nd edition

There are no difficulties to install libraries on 2nd edition devices.

  • Push the library (*.py and *.pyd) to the phone
  • The automatic installer asks you how to install
  • Choose to install has a library

When packaging libraries in a .sis, the target folders are C:\\System\\libs and E:\\System\\libs respectively for the phone memory and the memory card.

3rd edition

With 3rd edition phones same kind of installation does not work, because python (.py, .pyc, .pyd and .pyo) recognizer plug-in is missing. You need to package your libraries to be able to install them.

The target location is C:\\resource or E:\\resource for the .py. For the .pyd (python DLL), the target is C:\\sys\\bin or E:\\sys\\bin.

An easy way to make those installation packages (.sis and .sisx for its signed version) is to use ensymble with the option simplesis.

  • Create the following folder architecture with the libraries at the right places:
|_ resource
| |_
|_ myOtherLib.pyd
  • Go to the root of mylibrary directory
  • From shell, run the command
    python simplesis mylibrary

Then you'll get mylibrary_x.x.x.sis ready to be pushed in your phone.

Ensymble has plenty of other functions. I encourage you to read the man.
