Symbian Belle FP2 Hack (using Safe Manager) for Nokia 603, 700, 701 and 808PureView

Update (Feb. 2013) – From some reader’s feedback it appears that following method is not working anymore in Nokia 808PureView with firmware version 113.10.1507 onwards. I will cross check it with some of my friends having 808 and will update the post soon. Please do share your experience with the method to help the thread.

After updating to Belle Feature Pack 2 (via Nokia Suite), many DiGi-PASSION readers have reported that the current Symbian Belle hacking methods are not working in their phones (Nokia 603, 700, 701, 808) giving “component built-in” error. So, in this post, I am describing a new hack/jailbreak specific to Nokia Belle FP2 phones only. Similar to other older hacks this method is also based on ROM Patcher+ and basic mechanism is also the same viz. inserting ROM Patcher driver files inside C:/sys/bin using an antivirus/security app. However in this method Safe Manager app is used instead of Norton/Trend Micro. Safe Manager is a powerful, multi-utility application for Symbian (in Chinese) which also has a File Manager, capable of full system read/write access. This feature is utilized to insert certain patch files inside specific system folders. Now there are two somewhat different methods to hack the phone (in the sequence of preference) as described below –

First Method

1. Download this zip file and extract its contents. Install BelleFP2_hack_digipassion.sis in your phone (ignore all warnings and continue with installation). Safe Manager will launch itself after installation (launch from menu if not), select No at all the three prompts.

2. At the main interface of Safe Manager go to “Other/FileMgr”. Now via its file manager go to E:/FP2hack. Open FP2hack folder, there will be a file named “updatedswicertstore.dat”, copy this file and paste inside C:/resource/swicertstore/dat folder (via options/insert, confirm replace if prompted). Create this path if it does not exist. When done go back to the main interface of Safe Manager. Now go to options and select “Stop” from the popup menu, select yes at “Stop all services” prompt then exit Safe Manager. You can uninstall Safe Manager now as it is no longer needed.

3. Now install ROMPatcher3.1_FP2.sisx (present in the zip file contents). After installation run ROMPatcher+ from phone menu and apply all patches, exit ROMPatcher and enjoy installing any unsigned app/game!

Second Method

If above method does not work for you then follow the steps given below
1. Download this zip file and extract its contents. Install BelleFP2_hack_digipassion.sis in your phone. After installation Safe Manager will launch automatically, select “No” at all the three prompts.

2. Go to “Other/FileMgr” and go to the extracted files (in Step 1). Open ROMPatcher drivers folder, there are three .ldd files in this folder. Copy all the three files one by one and paste/insert inside C:/sys/bin folder. After copying all the three files, go back to the main interface of Safe Manager. Now go to options and select “Stop” from the popup menu, select yes at “Stop all services” prompt then exit Safe Manager. You can uninstall Safe Manager now as it is no longer needed.

3. Now install ROMPatcher+3.1_FP2_Lite.sisx in phone (present in the extracted files in Step 1). After installation launch ROMPatcher+ from menu and apply all patches to install unsigned apps and full system access.

Note – The ROMPatcher+v3.1 given above is a new version specific to Nokia Belle FP2 firmwares only (thanks to Marco Bellino at symbian-toys.com). So it is not recommended to use the above methods to hack older Symbian (Belle/Belle Refresh/Belle FP1) phones. You can safely hack these older firmwares via methods described in following posts

Nokia Belle FP1

Symbian Belle/Belle Refresh

    Is there any way to know if the hack was successful? Some unsigned apps install, some are still giving me certificate error. After trying the first method I wanted to give the second one a go but I get a certificate error when I try installing the lite rompatcher. Thanks

    well, i tried second method first bcoz it was easy but it did not work, then i tried first method and it worked. Now i dont get any kind of error(before i used to get component in-built,Unable to install protected application from an untrusted supplier)while installing any apps. I am using nokia 701. I am happy now. Thanks !

    @Florin
    Try again, it will sure work. you have place private files in private folder and resource file in resource folder for safemanager to get in english language.

    hi Shoaib, i have one question. can i uninstall safe manager after sucessfull hack, because safe manager runs in background and it stores some of my inbox messages seperate, it also shows data traffic when i am surfing via operamini and sometime it pop-up when i have incoming call even after killing safemanager via jbtaskman

    hear you . . .

      Of course you can (and you should) uninstall Safe Manager after the hacking process is over as it is no longer needed later on.

    Neither of the two above methods work on a new 808 phone purchased 2/2013, firmware 1507.

    Neither method installs anything that can be seen in the menu. The second one manages to install a piece of rubbish which is a little object that floats above the menu which when pressed starts up a kind of dialing app. I managed to uninstall that app from under Settings/Installations (it had an obvious Chinese name).

    First method worked absolutely fine for my Pureview 808. I have (From Settings->Phone>Phone Management->Device Manager)
    Release : Nokia Belle Feature Pack 2
    Sw Ver: 113.010.1506

    And can now install unsigned apps fine. The trick is to apply the patch before you do so, and then exit and install. When you next restart the phone the patches are not applied (you have to use the ROM patcher before the install). This is good as your phone is then still protected from unsigned apps after install is over.
