Hi Lukas,

This happens when you've run the build - either make or the setup.py - script as root before.
You're probably right, is that a problem?



You can either install Eclipse and the ADT Plugin for Eclipse. This is a very userfriendly method for generating the apk file.
I'm not familiar with Eclipse, sorry I couldn't generate it without explanations.

Or you could use the "create_package" script in the android directory. You also need to have the Android SDK installed.
I tried too, but the generated apk couldn't be installed, without any more explicit error message.
Anyway I've installed yesterday from your windows release. Back to linux, I had do update OMS on my pc to match versions (svn revision 985).
And now it works! Actually, it worked… because now connection etablishment stays stuck forever at 60% (debug log here: http://pastebin.com/ZAQ0YUau).

Any idea to fix it?

Are you using the pybluez version from my PPA?
Yes I'm.

Open Mobile Suite 0.9.92 (1.0 Technical Preview 3) can now be downloaded from my Ubuntu PPA too.

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lukas-hetzenecker/openmobilesuite
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openmobilesuite-gui

Could anybody test the Windows binary of the new release?

The download link is http://netload.in/dateivQFmCr87Kj/openmobilesuite-0.9.92.exe.htm

If it works I'll upload it so sourceforge and make the release for Ubuntu.

Source code and Windows binary are uploaded to https://sourceforge.net/projects/series60-remote/files/openmobilesuite/0.9.92/

Important notice for upgrades from previous versions!
The layout of the database has changed in the last release.
Automatic database updates are not supported in the Technical Previews.
Please delete your database before upgrading! (It's located in $HOME/.config/OpenMobileSuite/data.db under Linux or %APPDATA%/OpenMobileSuite/data.db under Windows)
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Lukas,

I updated from your PPA, but I still have the same bug (at the very first time OMS can connect to my phone, at the second connection etablishment stays stuck forever at 60%). Any idea?

Sorry for my late reply.
The PC requests a hash from all contacts of the mobile phone. This can take some time.
Please check if the service is still running on your mobile phone. The debug messages from your phone (logcat) would be important to debug this error.

Thanks,
Lukas

    Open Mobile Suite
    Technical preview now available!
    After exactly one year I can present you the first technical preview of this application!
    I'm sorry it took so long, but there were some major changes in the application (e.g. splitting it in several parts and using DBus as IPC framework)

    404860_10150451031458564_365945873563_8786842_703471981_n.jpg

    You connect to your Android phone using bluetooth (Wifi and USB will be supported soon, it will also be possible to initiate a connection using Android Cloud to Device)

    406446_10150451031573564_365945873563_8786845_15014760_n.jpg

    You can write messages to multiple contacts using the very innovative contact browser (with support for auto-completion).

    399860_10150451031673564_365945873563_8786847_815851908_n.jpg

    Here are all informations of your contacts.

    It's possible to edit your contacts (although this is currently not supported by the Android server application on your mobile phone)

    Original post from 27th December 2010:

    Hello,

    I'm the maintainer of Series60-Remote, an open source Software Suite for Symbian / S60 smart phones. This application connects to a Bluetooth service on your phone and allows you to manage your contacts, calendar entries, messages and files from your PC.

    A few days ago I got my first Android-based phone, a HTC Desire HD, and now I want to port the application also to this platform.
    The server application on the phone is rather simple (you can have a look at the Python source file for the S60 platform[1]). It just responds to some commands from your PC (e.g. request the hash of the contacts).
    So this would be a great chance to have a FOSS suite that runs on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows and supports Symbian and Android!

    What do you think of such a project?
    I've never used Java before so it would be great if anybody could help me with the port.

    If you need further informations you can go to the project page: series60-remote.sf.net (when the port is ready I will rename the software to 'Open Mobile Suite')

    Thanks for your comments,
    Lukas
