Access to your Symbian system folders: the Open4All patch for phones hacked with the Y-Drive/Modo method

access to Symbian system folders with Open4All for ROMPatcher
Note: the Open4All patch also works with HelloOX, HelloCarbide, and all other hacking methods as long as you install ROMPatcher on your phone.

The Y-Drive/Modo hack opens Nokia phones with firmware versions that resisted the old AppTRK and HelloCarbide hacks.

There's a problem, though. On many phones hacked with the new Y-Drive/Modo method, you can't simply switch caps off to give file managers like X-plore and ActiveFile access to system folders like c:\sys\bin. You had to use the Modo file manager instead, which has rather limited features.

This ROMPatcher patch takes care of that. When you let ROMPatcher run the Open4All patch, all your file managers can view, read from, and write to the system folders.

Of course your phone has to be hacked and ROMPatcher has to be installed on your phone to make this patch work.

This patch was posted on the Symbian Freak forum by wadowice.

I am using a nokia n79 ...hacked ;p...
Well,what exactly is this rompatcher ? i mean what it does?
(1 ) I installed it successfully (hellox) and while opening the app..some random process took place like "mapping drives" and so on...i also installed the "modo" ...now i am able to install all applications on my phone...happy for that...
(2 ) but the problem is that i have a opera mini mod and it is unsigned...it works properly....but still it always keeps on asking "allow to connect to internet" or "allow to read or write user data" and many such repeated annoying questions....how to stop them..? ....i installed the opera mini before installing the hellox....will re-installing the app fix the problem ?
(3) how do i sign .jar applications ?
I have .cer and .key for my cell phone....
Thank you...
