Applications, Tools and Ports

SHR a GNU/Linux Based Operating System for SmartPhones

" SHR is a GNU/Linux based operating system for smartphones and similar mobile devices. It integrates various Free and Open Source Software projects into a versatile platform - flexible enough to run on a vast selection of mobile hardware such as the Freerunner Phone, Nokia N900, Palm Pre (and variants), T-Mobile G1, HTC HD2, iPhone 3Gs and more. SHR is based on OpenEmbedded and uses GNU/Linux at its core. It integrates the freesmartphone.org framework for telephony, networking, etc. and a user friendly garphical interface for phone calls, messaging and pim, based on Enlightenment libraries. A growing amount of available applications offers SHR users with web browsers, microblogging clients, games and everything else expected on a smartphone platform."

Loadstone GPS

Loadstone GPS is a free navigational application designed to be used with a Bluetooth GPS receiver and a mobile phone using the Series60 platform on the Symbian operating system. Loadstone GPS was developed to be a low-cost feature-rich navigational assistant for the blind. Loadstone GPS allows a user to save points of interest and affectively create a map of the environment. Using this map a user is informed about his or her relative position to these points and knows the heading and distance to these points. This way Loadstone GPS omits the use of (expensive) professionally designed maps while providing all of the orientational information that is needed to move around in the environment. The program is therefore able to help the user to learn and memorise a route; enabling the user to locate points such as: a supermarket, a friends' house, a train station/bus stop and even their home's front entrence


GnuBox is a small software for your cell phone with which you can create a new Internet Connection (internet access point, connection profile, whatever you call it) on the phone. If you use this connection, the phone does not dial or connect to GPRS, but uses bluetooth (or the USB cradle) to connect to your PC. Thus you will be able to surf the web, download software/data/email/whatever you like without paying any fee to your operator.

Python for Series 60

" Python for Series 60 allows developers to execute Python commands and run Python scripts and applications in devices based on Series 60 Platform. In addition, developers can execute Python commands and scripts in the emulators of Series 60 Developer Platform SDK's. Development starts with an interactive console in a Series 60 compatible device where Python commands can be executed. Alternatively, a developer can write Python scripts, install them to a device executing scripts and applications from the Python Environment."

LightBlue Python Bluetooth API for Series 60

LightBlue is a cross-platform Python Bluetooth API for Mac OS X, GNU/Linux, and Python For Series 60. It provides easy programmatic access to device and service discovery, RFCOMM sockets, sending and receiving files over OBEX, service advertising, and local device information.

Nokia 5510 Linux Audio Manager

Nokia 5510 Linux Audio Manager allows user to manage MP3 files stored on Nokia 5510 mobile phone. It was written in Python with use of GTK+2 and Glade2 modules. The main platform for 5510lam is Linux.


VCalOne converts vCalendar version 2 data to a limited subset of vCal version 1. VCalOne can convert a calendar saved from korganizer to a format suitable for uploading to a Nokia 6820 cell phone.

Nokryptia MP3 to LSE Conversion

To convert MP3's to LSE files you can use Nokryptia.


Sisopen is a tool to list and extract the content of SIS files. SIS files are installation files used in Symbian-based smartphones like many S60 Nokia phones. Sisopen is an ANSI-C program, mainly targeted at Linux and other Unix-like systems. It can be compiled on almost every system with a C compiler and zlib. Sisopen fully understands the SIS file format and is able to show conditionals, installation-time options, and much information about the SIS file, not just the file names.


Smart Phone Web Camera : Turns a Symbian Series 60 phone with bluetooth and camera into a handy webcam ready to use with your PC.

Nokia Leaks Phone With Full GNU/Linux Distribution

SlashDot : "It is now clear why Nokia has been so slow with S60 updates: [0]the upcoming N900 just left everything else in the dust. Unlike Google's Linux platform, Nokia is not intentionally breaking compatibility with real distros, choosing instead to bring you the unmatchable power of [1]GNU/Linux on your phone. This is the most awesome device I have ever seen: MAP3 CPU/GPU, 3,5" 800x480 touchscreen, keyboard, Wi-Fi, HSPA, GPS; 5-MP camera, CZ lens, 32 GB storage, SD slot; X11, VT100 terminal emulator, APT package manager. Estimated price without credit: $780 (N.5800: $390, iPhone 3GS: $750). Developers should note that even though the current desktop is still GTK+, Qt will be standard across all Nokia platforms in the near future (less powerful phones will use Qt on the Symbian kernel). Users can download flashing software [2]from Nokia, and patches can be submitted [3]at the Maemo site."


PhoNetInfo retrieves detailed phone and network information. It runs on Symbian S60 3rd edition mobile phones. Information about the following topics can be retrieved: phone manufacturer and model, firmware version, battery level, WLAN and bluetooth MAC, bluetooth device class, IMSI, IMEI, subscriber ID, charger status, running tasks, active profile settings, network mode, network signal strength and cell ID, network name and ID, network country code and registration status, CPU speed, CPU type and architecture, size of RAM and ROM, and more.


QBall is a simple Breakout clone that is primarily intended to be played on Nokia Symbian phones, rather than desktops, but was easy to port thanks to the use of Qt.

Wifi Remote Play

Wifi Remote Play is a remote control app for Symbian (Nokia S60 5th edition phones), allowing you to control Media Player Classic over a wireless network.
