Building Applications for Symbian^1 with Qt SDK 1.1


Due to a bug at Qt SDK 1.1 qmake generates pkg files which does not include support for Symbian^1 (Symbian S60 5th Edition). As a result a compatibility warning is displayed during installation of the sis file of the application on Symbian^1 devices and application cannot be published for them in Nokia Ovi Store.


The bug is still not resolved but there is a workaround. To fix it go to 1Qt473\mkspecs\features\symbian\default_post.prf and replace the following code:

  1. Supports Symbian^3 and Symbian^4 by default and also S60 3.1, 3.2, and 5.0 if built against any of those.

platform_product_id = S60ProductID platform_product_id = $$addLanguageDependentPkgItem(platform_product_id) pkg_platform_dependencies = "; Default HW/platform dependencies" "[0x20022E6D],0,0,0,{$$platform_product_id}" "[0x20032DE7],0,0,0,{$$platform_product_id}" contains(S60_VERSION, 3.1)|contains(S60_VERSION, 3.2)|contains(S60_VERSION, 5.0) {

pkg_platform_dependencies +=  "[0x102032BE],0,0,0,{$$platform_product_id}"  "[0x102752AE],0,0,0,{$$platform_product_id}"  "[0x1028315F],0,0,0,{$$platform_product_id}"



  1. Supports Symbian^1, Symbian^3 and Symbian^4

platform_product_id = S60ProductID platform_product_id = $$addLanguageDependentPkgItem(platform_product_id) pkg_platform_dependencies = "; Default HW/platform dependencies" "; Symbian^1 (aka S60 5th Edition) " "[0x1028315F],0,0,0,{$$platform_product_id}" "; Symbian^3" "[0x20022E6D],0,0,0,{$$platform_product_id}" "; Symbian^4" "[0x20032DE7],0,0,0,{$$platform_product_id}"

The modified code will allow you to build applications compatible to Symbian^1 (Symbian S60 5th Edition), Symbian^3 and Symbian^4.
