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,
