Archived:VeriSign signed MIDlets cannot be installed on Series 40 5th Edition FP1 devices (Known Issue)
MIDlets signed with the VeriSign code signing certificate cannot be installed on Series 40 5th Edition Feature Pack 1 devices. The reason for this can be found in the OCSP (Online Certificate Status Protocol) implementation on these phones. According to VeriSign, the affected devices do not have the intermediate certificate which the AMS expects.
How to reproduce
- Create a MIDlet.
- Sign it with the VeriSign certificate.
- Try to install the MIDlet by downloading it from a server over the air (OTA) or use, for example, the PC Suite Application Installer.
When downloading and installing the MIDlet, the no valid certificate error is displayed.
If the Application Installer is used, the MIDlet is installed on the phone but the MIDlet cannot be launched.
Nokia Developer Wiki has a test MIDlet with VeriSign signature.
NOTE: The signature of the MIDlet is valid from 29 August 2007 to 15 September 2008. For testing, set the current date of the device according to the defined signature validity period.
This problem has been fixed in the latest firmware versions of Series 40 5th Edition, Feature Pack 1 devices.
