    Thanks for posting this. But I would prefer not to have to get an account there just to download one file (I have so many accounts on the 'net as it is!). Could someone please post the file here (or somewhere I don't need an account)? I also am having trouble finding what exactly this thing changes.

    Thanks buxz777 and Moz! But now I'm afraid that I am not yet clear on the whole certificate thing. I've tried looking around but haven't found anything clear on how to do this, or when it should be done. I found instructions somewhere that required one to sign up for free web hosting somewhere. Do I really have to do all that just to get this mod to work?

    Thanks for any help!

    so, you have to edit some txt files within this mod to configure some of these hacks right?
    has anyone here tried it out?

    I too am having problems signing this app. Symbian Signed throws out this error when i try to use it on this file saying ,
    FAILURE: Submitted .sis file uses a UID that is not in the protected or test range (0x10202be9). Open Signed Online only accepts UIDs from the ranges 0x2xxxxxxx and 0xExxxxxxx.

    What does this mean?
    How do I get it signed?
