We told you earlier that the Nokia Developer forum was hacked. Nokia addressed the problem immediately and initially stated that only a small number of member records had been accessed. However, a recent email sent to forum members says the number is significantly larger. Nokia has now taken the developer community website offline as a precautionary measure while they conduct further investigations and security assessments.
The Nokia Developer website was hacked earlier today. The discussion board was temporarily redirected to a page with Homer Simpson and a short message. The hacker responsible goes by the name of pr0tect0r AKA mrNRG.
Last month, hyperX released a hack for the camera on the Nokia N8 that enabled 30 frames per second with continuous autofocus for video and 100% JPEG compression for photos. The differences were very minimal unless you zoomed in really close. The file sizes were also larger. Today at the official Nokia Conversations, Damian Dinning shares his thoughts on the hack.
Bluetooth can be turned on/off by pressing the * key on some Eseries devices like the Nokia E66 and Nokia E71. This shortcut is not available on the Nseries phones. By hacking your Nseries S60 phone, there’s a patch that lets you change the ’0′ shortcut that usually opens the web browser. I’ve changed it to open the bluetooth menu on my Nokia N95 8GB. By turning on bluetooth only when you need it, you can save battery life and prevent unwanted file transfers.
This guide will be referenced to many times in the future, so I am posting the instructions to hacking your S60 Nokia phones now. Hacking your S60 phone will let you install unsigned applications without a hassle and even apply some patches if you like. It’s much easier than I thought!
A topic I haven’t talked about here on the Nokia blog is about hacking S60. I never really understood it or saw the point, but I tried it today to remove that useless search tool on the main display of the Nokia N95 8GB. In essence, hacking your S60-powered phones like the Nokia Nseries and Eseries devices lets you install unsigned applications and apply patches. The bad thing about it is the changes applied by the patch needs to be reapplied every time the phone is restarted.
