[edit] Description

When the application is signed against either a trusted certificate or a self-signed certificate, backup and restore works as expected, provided that the backup registration file is included in the application SIS package.

When a developer certificate is used, the restore process fails for that application. This affects all certificates that are bound to specific device ID (IMEI) value(s), most notably developer certificates.

[edit] Solution

This has been fixed in S60 3rd Edition, FP1 in spring 2007 (e.g. Nokia N95, firmware 12.0.13 onwards). See also article TSS000750 - Enabling backup and restore for installed C++ applications.
