How to sign unsigned apps for Nokia s60v5 phones.

Here's sort of a walk-through to get you all setup to sign unsigned apps and then be able to install them on your phone.

Now there are many websites that let you sign up to get cert & key, However I've had the best return time with this site: http://cer.s603rd.cn/
Click on the thumbnail for a larger view.


For people who don't mind waiting and don't want to deal with the Chinese site mentioned above, there's this website: http://www.s60certkey.com/ that lets you do the same. However, since this site piggyback's on another service it'll take awhile before you get your cert & key.

Once you have your cert & key, transfer them to a folder on your phone (I keep mine on the memory card, but it honestly does not matter).

Download Free Signer here. And install to your phone.
Run the app and go to 'Settings', Where it says 'Sign Cert' and 'Sign Key' browse and find the cert & key respectively.

Now you are ready to sign apps, Simply 'Add Task' and navigate to the unsigned app. Make sure that when you 'Add' the app you select Sign sis and Self Sign sis. Then click Go and you will have your signed app.

I believe this should be it. If you need any more clarifications Please let me know.
Hope this helps!

  3. @2 - You'll need to elaborate as to when you got that message. Was it while installing FreeSigner?
    If so, try this - Settings>Application Manager>Installation Settings. Make sure 'Software Installation' is ALL, 'Online Cert Check' is OFF and 'Default web address' is NONE.

  5. Hey,
    So as far as I can tell you are having an issue with the FreeSigner app.
    Here's my suggestion, there are other ways of signing apps as well. You can do it on a PC by using this Signer utility:

    or use another app to sign apps on your phone using SignSis:

  17. PRATUL BAHETI: I dont understand one thing why we need to go online for getting certificate. Isn't there any software which creates certificate and key directly on your comp for those who dont have internet. Well plz search on net and if u find any such software plz let me know at pratulbaheti@yahoo.co.in thanks

  19. Ok. I went to the chinese website, and i wrote imei and verification code where I was supposed to. Then, one day after, I did the same thing again, and i didn't get any download link? It just says:

    Please collecte the web site to download the certificate again, and I hope you promote our website so that others can quickly obtain the certificate Saipan.
    We provide you with two kinds of signature tool (a computer terminal signature tools signtools2.2; mobile terminal signature tool s60SignSis_v2.1)

    What am i supposed to do?

  22. does this technique still work? or is there a better way to get certs now?

    ReplyDelete
  23. guys dont be so naive you are handing over you imei numbers over the internet to random people.. For those of you who dont know the imei number can be used to clone your phones leading to your phones being barred. I should know as this has happened to me before. Im not saying this is a scam but be vary
