Qt Application Development / Re: HelpDesk for App Developers
« Last Post by SymbianUser64 on June 26, 2022, 09:58:49 pm »
Hello there. I've had plans on development for Symbian for a while now, but I know nothing. Zero. Let me explain.
So, software is my passion and mostly smartphones. I was an Apple fanboy for four years until I got off technology and on life and got a Nokia 5800 for the sake of trying it. I fell in love with S60 after so many years of super mega hyper ultra closed iOS. So last summer I imagined, in my best dreams, some kind of app suite similar to Ovi, which would bring back a lot of long gone functionality to Symbian. I didn't have any plans on doing it, but now I do. So my plans are to bring back apps alike to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, their FOSS alternatives, to make Symbian (almost) fully usable again.

So I do this because I love technology and Symbian and I would like to bring basic internet functions to this great OS. But. I do this because I love tech and Symbian, I don't actually know much about it.
By this I mean that I have pretty much zero knowledge on apps, clients, APIs and their structure. This is my first ever development project.
And so I need help. I don't really know where to start and what to start my learning with, I have a lot of questions, and I need advice from someone who knows. So instead of bothering everyone in the Telegram group or someone without asking first, I thought it'd be better to start by asking here, if there is anyone that would like to help me. Thank you very much.

P.D.: I'm posting this in the Qt section because there's no general one(and it seems the most appealing method for developing my apps at the moment).

Hi there,

Please read carefully the following points:

1) If your phone is already slow on PR1.0, I would not consider upgrading to Belle. What you can do is to upgrade PR1.0 to Anna. Switching to Belle will make your phone even slower! But, finding Anna firmware may be very uneasy these days...

2) If you want to flash N8, you need Phoenix 2012.04 version (https://app.box.com/s/a6w29u47wdyapq3tgqwq2bkgeg9us0zh). As you have neither a flashbox nor a dongle, you have to download the version which I call "Special package by Seidea". Highly likely it will be detected as a virus/malware, but this is not because there is real malware inside. No, it is because this version (as well as all other free Phoenix versions) was repacked and an activator was included in the EXE package, which is triggered by various antiviruses as a false positive.

3) Don't trust Chrome browser, it scolds that you have downloaded a virus every second time :)
There was no need to format your computers, of course.

4) If you do not trust Phoenix, you can grab Nokia CareSuite (https://magentacloud.de/s/WJddkZ5WDrm9iow). This EXE file is directly from Nokia, and unlike Phoenix, original Nokia CareSuite does not require the flashbox.

I hope this piece of information helps.

Legacy Symbian / PDAmill Snails for Symbian S60
« Last Post by SymPsion on April 09, 2022, 09:12:54 pm »
Symbian Alpha/Beta version of Snails  :)

About
Snails is a fun action-strategy game for the Pocket PC, PC, Palm OS and Symbian platform. It features fantastic graphics, sounds, background music and gameplay.

The game has won many international awards and generally considered as a flagship product of PDA gaming.

STORY       
    Deep in Space, there lies the ancient planet of Schnoogie. On the planet of Schnoogie, there exist the three races of Snails: the Moogums, the Lupeez, and the Nooginz.
       One peaceful day on Schnoogie, something was wrong, very wrong. It was peaceful. And Snails hate peace. When peace happens, there is no war. And without war: destruction, mayhem, and alien invasions become obsolete. Which are the three things that the Snails thrive on (especially the Nooginz). These three races have always been in a constant battle for world domination. A war which will decide who rules the planet of Schnoogie.
    On Earth, it is common knowledge that Snails are considered to be slow, but this is completely untrue on the planet of Schnoogie. In fact, they can run, jump, arm themselves with heavy artillery, and hurl insults at each other all day long. The planet Schnoogie needs a ruling race, and only you can lead the Snails to victory.
