There is a new tutorial for you, much easier as well, if this doesn’t work for you or you do face difficulties, then check out the symbian signing process while being offline without Open Signed here.

Get your Nokia Symbian Themes/Applications Symbian Signed yourself! Its dead easy so Do It Yourself!!! (…err with pics n a tutorial it really is!)

All righty sparky! Here we go:

Step by Step Symbian Signed Tutorial to Self Sign you Nokia Themes or Applications:

Here is a flick of the entire steps of what you have to do in a signing process:

Symbian Signed Detailed Description of Tutorial

1) Go to and register a new account immediately.

Registration at SymbianSigned Website

Since they dont let you register with any email services like (yahoo, gmail, hotmail etc.) try to register with a local or office or even university email address that you might have. Don’t have any local or office email address? No problem! Then you can just search google for any social networking site and register there, usually ninety nine percent would provide you with an email address once you register. Once registered there, use that email address to register with Symbian Signed and veriy everything they say accordingly.

2) Go to My Simbian Signed, Developer Certificates and download DevCertRequest tool.

Direct link:

Symbian Signed After Registration

3) Install the application in your PC and download the private keyfile (Chaos Inc Key file aka or the back up .key in attachment, I have provided an extra key file just in case)

4) It’s now time to create the certification request: open the DevCertRequest application you just installed and fill in the fields like this:

Symbian Developer Certificates Wizard Screenshot

Symbian Developer Certificate Request Wizard

Use the key you just downloaded ( Chaos Inc.key or sultan.key ). Set your desired password: 0123456 5) Go ahead to next steps and follow examples shown below:

Step Three Symbian Developer Certificate Request

6) Insert your IMEI number (…and yours only, don’t experiment otherwise, you may sign up for someone else’s phone and not yours lol) and add all application capabilities:

IMEI entry in Symbian Signed Process

Step 2 IMEI setup in Symbian Signed Process

Step 3 of IMEI setup in Symbian Signed Process for Nokia Certificate Sign ups

7) Click on finish and your Certificate Request will be created. You can find this file in the folder C:\Program Files\Symbian OS Tools\Developer Certificate Request\xxxxxxx.csr xxxxxxx = the name you have used in step 4 (in this specific tutorial it is : dzed.csr)

Step Seven in Developer Signing of Symbian Themes & Applications

8) Go back to Symbian Signed website and go to My Symbian Signed, Developer Certificates Request! Here is the Direct link: h**ps:// and upload the Certificate Request file you just created (in this specific tutorial : dzed.csr).

Step by Step Eight of Symbian Signing for Nokia Sony Ericsson Mobile Phones

9) Go to My Symbian Signed Developer Certificates. My DevCert Direct link: h**ps:// and download your certificate (in this specific tutorial : dzed.cer) !

Step Nine of My Symbian Signed process

10) Create a folder and place in FExplorer.sis as in this tutorial (it can be any file), the certificate you downloaded from Symbian Signed website, Private Keyfile (Chaos Inc. or the other .key) and signsis.exe and auto_signsis.bat (you can find it in the attachment)

11) Open auto_signsis.bat with notepad Code: signsis FExplorer.sis (or any application or theme), FExplorer_signed(your file, theme or application).sis xxxxxx.cer, Chaos Inc.key 0123456 (xxxxxx.cer is the certificate you created, and downloaded from Symbian Signed web site change it with yours) example with this tutorial and the version downloaded : Code: signsis FExplorer_english_3ed_116b_unsigned (or any unsigned application or themes).SIS, FExplorer_signed(or any unsigned application or themes).sisdzed.cer Chaos Inc or the other .key 0123456 – Save auto_signsis.bat (do not use Save-As just Save)

12) double click on auto_signsis.bat This will create a new file called FExplorer_signed.sis (or whatever you want, just change the filename), install it and enjoy this great App And you are done!!!! Here are all the files in one package: Symbian Signed Files and Tools and the Key Certificate Files!

The time frame in which Symbian Signed lets people without publisher ID sign applications/games/themes etc is from 9:00am to 3:00pm GMT. Please sign your thing within that time to be successful with the signing process. Godspeed!

    • mark 5230

      sorry my friend but there no way you can sign ur sis file in symbiansign.. because there’s a lot of change in signing process .. the only way to hack ur phone is to flash it using phoenix ..
      i already have my own cert and key .. but still it didn’t work on my phone ..

  25. Arsalan

    The simple way to hack a symbian phone first download install serve.exe from internet for symbian phone then create a folder like .sys/bin on memory card if it says folder cant be created then create like this hack/.sys/bin create it on memory card put intall server on it like this .sys/bin- intallserver or hack/.sys/bin- intallserver.exe using lcg xplore create a zip file like this hack this and put the folder.sys/bin conaining installserver.exe and then again using xplore extract the zipped hack file into C: RESTART UR PHONE ENJOY……. any problem contact me at

  72. S

    @Arun – Try to change extension off file to .exe
    If you can’t see any extension you must change settings in Explorer. Go on menu “Tools”, “Folders options”, locate and uncheck the option to hide extensions of files.

    Then you must rename the file and cut out .zip, double click it and good job.

    my email :


  80. Reign

    I too have noticed the same thing I went update my certificate and you must now hold a Publishers ID to be able to use the Offline Signing method surely there must be other sites that issue Certs for signing if anyone knows can you perhaps point us in the right direction its most frustrating when there is an app you really want but cant install due to the publisher ID situation it costs $200 for an ID…..ty

  81. Mark

    These instructions need to be updated. The Symbian site has changed! These instructions are no longer valid.

    Help us along here!

  82. Jacky

    no point register an account. its not working anymore.
    this is what i got…

    Your request has failed. Reason:
    -Developer Certificates will be ENABLED for users who have a Publisher ID ONLY
    -ONLY if you used a Publisher ID to create a .csr file with the DevCertCreate tool will you be able to use Open Signed Offline to create a Developer Certificate.
    -Developer Certificates are currently DISABLED for users without a Publisher ID. Users who DO NOT have a Publisher ID CANNOT request Developer Certificates or use Open Signed Offline.
    -If you have recently obtained a Publisher ID and are unable to create a Developer Certificate using Open Signed Offline please request support through the Symbian Signed forum on the Symbian Developer Network
