I have a C++ application that has been built using Nokia S60 v3 SDK. I want to rebrand this application without compiling the source code again. That means, I want to change the name and UID of the exe files, update the string resource in the .rsc file, rename the .rsc file and compile the different SVG file into MIF file and use it as icon without recompiling my source using Nokia SDK. The Ensymble document says that the changing UID is possible. But I am not sure about my other needs. If anyone knows, can you please share it with me?
Changing UID (and SecureID) is possible if your application is specifically built to allow that. Many applications contain the UID in the program code as well, but this prevents changing it after the fact. Your application needs to determine the UID dynamically, for example by using an RProcess().SecureId() call.
Ensymble has functions to create resource files on the fly, but those functions are not exposed to command line usage. Of course you can use Ensymble code as a base to make your own resource file generator. It might be easier to compile the resources with the official rcomp from Symbian, however.
