Yes that’s right, FCA00000 of symbian-freak successfully cracked the Symbian permissions system and has managed to expand this hack to all series 60 3rd edition phones with the help of others at symbian-freak.
With this hack you will now be able to explore all the files on your system which were previously inaccessible. To many it may seem nothing special or of no use but this is the first step to open the doors of your Symbian OS 9 phones and your mobile phone will be now really yours!!
You will be able to install applications with any capabilities even with manufacturer’s capabilities without a need of certificate from Nokia OR Sony!!

So no more talking lets get to work that how can you do all this stuff:

Note: This tutorial is same for all symbian OS 9 phones(n95,n82,n73,n8,P1i,w960i etc.) until’n’unless mentioned

You will need certain softwares and a PC:
Nokia phones -> Cable drivers of nokia pc suite version 6.85 need to be installed, nor 6.86 nor 6.84
1. Download and Install ActivePython on your PC
2. Download and Install PySerial
3. The magic python script and TRK application
a.) for Nokia (n95 ,n82 ,etc.) + AppTRK / for n73, n80 etc + AppTRK (Thanks to FCA00000)
b.) for UIQ based (P1i , w960i etc.) (Thanks to swmail)
4. Application to turn security on and off (from phone)
a.) for Nokia (n95 ,n82 ,n73 ,n80 etc.) (Thanks to FCA00000)
b.) for UIQ based (P1i , w960i etc.) (Thanks to swmail)

The Real Part:

1. Install the AppTRK application on your phone’s memory and start it, then in options>settings, select connection as USB.

2. Connect your phone to your PC via USB in PC Suite mode and then AppTRK will report connected on your phone

3. Go to Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager>Ports
OR in Windows Vista: Control Panel>System>Device Manager>Ports
Note the COM Port your phone is using

4. Open the python script in notepad (the one downloaded in step 3 with .py extension)

5. Search “serial.serial” without quotes and then replace the numerical value in bracket with the value of your COM Port minus 1 i.e. if your port was 22 then replace it with 21.

6. Save the file

7. Run the script by simply double clicking it

8. Now if you see something like !!!!!!candidate!!!!!!! in the output window, then congratulations now your phone is really yours!!

9. Now you can exit the AppTRK application.

10. Verify the hack with X-Plore, see if you can explore c:/sys/

11. Now if you will reboot the phone you will have to reactivate the hack with above procedure OR to do it without PC do the following(Note: for the first time PC hack is needed)

12.a.) For Nokia :
I. copy CProfDriver_SISX.ldd from RAR downloaded in step 4a into C:\sys\bin
II. install CapsOn.sisx
III. install CapsOff.sisx

b.) For UIQ based
I. Copy patched trkdriver.ldd from rar downloaded in step 4b to c:\sys\bin\
II. Install CapsSwitch on your phone

13. Now you can switch security on and off without pc through these applications
CapsOff = Security OFF and do whatever you want to do with your phone 🙂
CapsOn = Restrictions ON 🙁

Enjoy :))))

Tomorrow I will post, that how can you install the unsigned applications with all capabilities on your phone without the need for symbian signed 🙂
