Series60 Remote Protocol¶
Changed in version 1.31.90: There were some changes in the protocol and applet has been renamed.
The original applet has been created for <http://series60-remote.sourceforge.net/>. Gammu uses extended version which is probably not fully compatible with original.
Connection to S60 phones currently works only using Bluetooth.
Choosing right version¶
Before using this connection type, you need to install the applet to the
phone. The applet can be found in
contrib/s60 directory and there are two
variants of the applets:
Not signed applet, which can be installed to the phone if it has enabled installation of unsigned applications (see Allowing installation of unsigned applications).
This applet also lacks some capabilities, so for example you will not be able to get network information.
- Applet ready for signing using Open Signed Online. This will allow you to install applet to your phone only (it is bound to IMEI), but you don’t need to allow installation of unsigned applications.
The best way of course would be to have properly signed applet. However access to signing tools costs 200 USD per year, what is something we can not afford right now.
Allowing installation of unsigned applications¶
For security reasons, Symbian defaults to install signed applications only. As getting properly signed applet is expensive for non commercial product like Gammu, you need to either sign applet yourself (the signature is valid for single phone) or allow installation of unsigned applications:
- Open Application Manager, it is usually located in Control Center.
- Press left soft key for Options menu.
- From the menu choose Settings.
- Change the Software Installation to All.
- Change the Online certif. check to Off.
This allows installation of any not signed code to your phone. You should consider reverting this change, once you have installed applet required for Gammu.
To run the applet you need to install Python for S60 2.0 to the phone. You can either download it from their website, or just get mirrored installation package from <http://dl.cihar.com/gammu/s60/Python_2.0.0.sis>. This file is not distributed with Gammu due to licensing reasons.
On some phones, the Python for S60 2.0 will not start, in this case you
need to install some additional support libraries coming with Python for S60 2.0 -
stdioserver.sis. You can get
all of them at https://wammu.eu/s60/ as well.
Installing Python for S60 and Series60 remote applet can be done in several ways:
Installation using Gammu¶
Gammu can transmit the applet to your phone automatically. Just configure it
for use of BlueS60 connection (see Connecting to Series60 phone chapter below) and
It will automatically transmit the applet to the phone. On some phones the installation will start automatically, on some you need to find received files in the inbox and install them manually from there.
If you want to install Python for S60 as well you need to download it and
place in folder where Gammu searches for installation images (you can
configure it by setting
DataPath). For example:
cd /usr/share/data/gammu wget http://dl.cihar.com/gammu/s60/Python_2.0.0.sis wget http://dl.cihar.com/gammu/s60/pips.sis
Downloading from phone¶
Downloading files from the phone and installing them directly. You can download all required files from https://wammu.eu/s60/.
Manual Installation using Gammu¶
If the above mentioned
gammu install does not work for you, for
example when you need to use different applet, you can still use Gammu to send
files to the phone using
First you need to create
~/.gammurc with following content:
[gammu] connection = blueobex model = obexnone device = 5C:57:C8:XX:XX:XX # Address of the phone
And now you can send files to your phone:
gammu sendfile Python_2.0.0.sis gammu sendfile contrib/s60/gammu-s60-remote.sis
Files should appear in inbox in your phone and you can install them from there.
