[Loadstone] signing process problems

Symbian Signed is basically Nokia's way of shooting themselves in the 
foot.  With a nuclear bomb.  Basically it forces applications that need 
to do anything useful like accessing the camera, making data calls, 
whatever, to be digitally signed by Symbian.  It is a great idea on 
paper, it means that malware can't get on your phone and make $50000 
phone calls, but it's a huge pain for developers.
What this means to you is that you will have to sign Loadstone if you 
have a phone running s60 v3, as loadstone requires some of the functions 
that are blocked.

You can get ahold of a developer certificate on symbiansigned.com which 
will allow you to sign programs for one particular IMEI number, in this 
case, the IMEI number of your phone. 
Hope this helps,
Q
