Placing hacked installserver.exe in C:/sys/bin is a crucial step in Symbian hacking. This post is for those novice Symbian users who face difficulty doing this step. Here is how you can use X-plore to copy/paste any file anywhere in Symbian mobiles –
First of all you need to have full system access to paste anything inside system folders – so follow the hacking process (described in this post) until successful applying of “Open4All” patch via ROM Patcher.
1. If you don’t have X-plore installed already then download and install it from here. Launch X-plore and see if it is showing all files and folders – go to Menu/Tools/Configuration and check/tick the first four boxes. However leave them as such if they are already checked. Press Back
2. Now go to the location where installserver.exe is present in phone – like in E:/Received files or else
3. Once the file is located, just highlight it and go to Menu/Edit/Copy – this will copy installserver
4. Now go to C:/sys/bin –
a) In touchscreen phones – first open/expand C:/ drive by touching + icon adjacent to the drive letter (its a little difficult to touch precisely in X-plore for peoples having heavy hands and fingers because of small size of icons).
b) In non-touch phones go to C:/ drive by up/down arrow key and then press “Right arrow” key (do not press the center/select key to open drive)
Now find and open sys folder (similarly as described above) – in sys folder find bin folder – touch/tap bin folder twice in touch devices (or highlight it and press center/select key in non-touch devices) to paste the installserver.exe file in it (copied in step 3 above). Done!
Simple! Isn’t it? (provided you don’t have heavy hands and thick fingers).
