Some time ago I posted an entry to my Forum Nokia blog about how to change the S60 browser identity to mimic iPhone. At that time I thought this trick only as a simple experiment that doesn't have other value. Then one comment opened my eyes that there might be something more than that:
So if you can modify this user agent on the E90 or make a patch wich can modify user agent how we like, all the features which come with our subscription will be unlock...In short: access to some services is blocked from users that have not bought their terminals from operator's shop.
Orange's politic is certainly illegal, but I don't have the courage and money to fight with them :(.
If you want to modify the plugin to best suit your needs, download iPhonesque source from here. However, remember that
- you MUST HAVE a valid Publisher ID for Symbian Signed
- seriously, do you have Publisher ID?
- with that Publisher ID go get yourself a developer certificate with required capabilities (see the mmp-file)
- if you want to use this on S60 3.0 devices you will need DRM capability which is almost impossible to get
- read the code, understand it and make your modifications
Before anyone asks why I'm not delivering this application signed and installable the reason is quite simple: signing would cost me money.
