Presenting before you a tutorial to convert s60v3 python apps to s60v2 apps.
¥.First of all, I would like to tell you that the platform os 9 and os 8 are very different.
¥.The python modules of s60v3 are more advance than s60v2.
¥.So it’s definite that many of them won’t work.
¥.The apps required for the procedure must be working on your s60v2.
¥.It might also work on s60v1 but I haven’t tested.
1.)Sisboom 6.20 or S60unpack – For unpacking s60v3 files.
2.)LinkAPPer – For app creation.
3.)X-plore or any file-browser – For file transfer.
¥.Download the apps and make your phone ready for procedure.
¥.So here we go!!I am giving demo of PhotoFilter s60v3.
1.)Extract the files of the s60v3 python app in a folder using sisboom or s60unpack.
2.)Now open X-plore, go and create a folder "PhotoFilter” in E:\system\apps\PhotoFilter.
3.)Now make a new text file and name it default.py.
¥.It does’nt matter if you write anything inside or not.Note:
Default.py is starting point of app creation.Without it the app cannot
4.)Now open LinkAPPer and click create new app. Then go to the folder you just created and select the default.py file.
5.)A prompt of "Start file with” will popup. Choose Normal Opening. Screenshot2
6.)Then enter the name of the program "PhotoFilter”. Screenshot3
7.)Then it will ask for choice of disk-Choose E: Screenshot4
8.)A prompt will appear stating that the file with the same name already exist. Just Cancel it. Screenshot5
9.)UID of the app. You can enter the UID manually or simply dont touch.
10.)AIF type (image to be used by the app). Select any aif type you like. Screenshot6
Note:If you don’t like the icon, you can create your own icon.
11.)The app will then be created and you can see the icon in your folder. Screenshot7
12.)Its time to put on the real program/script.Now open your X-plore
again and go to the folder of the unpacked file and search all the
python scripts. They are usually in .py and .pyc files (sometimes there
are .pyd files as well) and is often found inside the private folder.
13.)Copy or move them in the folder of the app you just created
(e:\System\Apps\PhotoFilter). If there are images or text files, please
do copy them as well.
14.)Overwrite "default.py” if asked and delete linkapper file within the folder. Screenshot8
15.)All done, just test it now by clicking the app icon. Since this app is working fine, We can say that we are successful.
16.)For packing use Sisboom and enjoy your converted app.
17.)Now note that some scripts need to be modified such as the folder
the app is using, location of the config files or images or sounds.
18.)Use Zntxhan for decompiling the py scripts and do the necessary modifications.
19.)Sometimes it’s hard to decompile .pyd files and if you know python
codings, you can use mobilehex or Zntxhan to enter new codings
20.)Similarly after decompiling you can also translate the rsc file and can translate the app in foreign language.
Now once again, I’m telling you that all s60v3 python app won’t work on
s60v2. So just don’t lose hope and try hand on some other app.That’s so
Simple and easy. That’s all
