    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for an old N-Gage Software development kit, it should be called Symbian OS 6.1 or Symbian S60 SDK 1.2 or something similar. Another person on this forum has already been super helpful and given me a slightly later SDK and some incredibly useful documentation so I just wondered if anyone else had anything.

    Thanks :)

    Are you looking for the (generic) Symbian SDK, or the N-Gage specific one that also lets you use the device specific hardware?

    The S60 SDKs are out there, though a bit hard to dig up these days; if noone else has the file on hand, I still have it... somewhere... would take a while to find. The actual N-Gage SDK I have never come across, but @DirkDagger probably has it.

    edit: fwiw, the S60 SDK matching the NG would be in a file called "nS60_sdk_v1_2.zip", as well as "nS60_jme_sdk_v1_2_1.zip" if you want Java also.

    The Ngage SDK that I sent over to him is basically the S60 sdk anyway. It was used to develop an Ngage game or two, so at least I know its the real deal :p

    Hey thanks for your reply :)
    I'm basically looking for any and all N-Gage software and documents. However, any Symbian SDKs are likely helpful if you have one. I will message the person you have recommended.

    Thank you very much for your help :)

    And hey Borman, according to my team's research its the 1.2 we're after mostly, not the 2.1. It will still be helpful though, so thanks again for your help :)

    At any rate, learning as much as possible about the N-Gage is the goal here so I need all of the SDKs that were released if I can :p

    Yeah that's right. Do you have either of those or did you research? :)

    Those names come from a list of stuff I have stashed away on various external HDDs. Finding the right one could take a while...

    Hey, that's fine don't go out of your way too much for my sake. I've messaged the person you mentioned.

    If you're interested at all and you hadn't already guessed I'm working on an N-Gage emulator. I can PM you more details if you or anyone else you know may be interested :)

    In that case: Did you know the system ROM for the original N-Gage has been dumped by, iirc, a group called "THC"? I feel like that might maybe help you a bit in your endeavors :b I don't think I've ever found it, but it is out there.

    ed: spoke too soon, I have here a listing mentioning a file called 'thc-nokia-rom-images.tar.gz'. Guess I'll have to look for that HDD.

    ed2: or maybe not

    nS60_sdk_v1_2.zip is here (not the java sdk tho), and in case you missed the second edit, thc-nokia-rom-images.tar.gz is here. not my uploads so if you find virii you can keep them :p

    This emulator project is on halt until they can get the NG-specific SDK. Would be awesome if this turned up...

    Well, emulators aren't my forte, the devices I usually work on rarely have the required resources. I also rarely have enough patience to use Windows these days... But enough of that.

    You remember how "back in the days", some of the better S60 devices were made to run N-Gage games (iirc the "secret sauce" was simply copying over a couple of NG system libraries)? So if I'm not mistaken, you could start off by writing a generic S60 emulator running generic S60 apps and, once that's working well, extend it do cover the additional NG libs. Yes you might have to change the function ordinals later, but at least you don't have to sit there with your thumbs up your asses while waiting for the NG SDK.

    Other than being newer than they expected, the SDK I sent them should have the NGage specific stuff. It was used to make MotoGP so Id hope it works hah

    Was on holidays. As abt all S60 SDK's U can get 'em here at my friend's cloud, we backup all: http://www.4shared.com/folder/t6Oyqsdv
    Also, it's quite interesting, but for all this years where was many enthusiasts who wish to write NGE 1.0 emulator, but as U can see, soon 2017, and still no progress. Anyway, wish U luck. I'm still very deep in all related to Symbian/NGE. So no problem, feel free to contact me. :)

    Btw:

    I'm also still interesting in 2.0 games, that still uncr@cked. Like Asphalt 4, DirkDagger 2, Mega Mosters, etc... This are great titles, and back to those times I bought 'em all and still have my keys. But Nokia shutdown activation servers, so no any chance to activate your trial to full retail, despite U have all the keys, what an irony, hah.
    If still someone also interesting in this titles, I can provide roms for FIX'ing and also can pay some cash for helping make 'em full. So, all who interesting can write me PM. :)

    First there was N-Gage, the phones: N-Gage then N-Gage QD. Both ran the same SymbianOS and the games came in Memory Cards (IIRC no digital games were offered). Games for these were developed using the standard free Nokia Symbian SDK, AFAIK.

    Later on, Nokia "re-launched" the N-Gage brand as N-Gage 2.0. Old N-gage games are not binary compatible with this new platform (as this is a newer Symbian version that is not binary compatible with older binaries). Games were delivered digitally only. A special SDK was needed to develop for this platform, and was only provided under NDA from Nokia.

    This is my understanding; I may be wrong, but hopefully not :p

    Hey again, no I still have not been successful. What is it you have found? I'm still very interested in the project and I will be extremely grateful :)
