I have got a Nokia N95 handset that I had before I changed contracts. It has the battery but no sim card. I have semi-hacked it already so I can install My own applications / Pythin code and examine the root files and folders on it but I am looking to do more.

I am looking to remove the phone book and messaging features and program some new things into it if possible. I downloaded Carbide theme creator to hopefully see if changing the theme will allow me to change any core files and I will be experimenting with that.

I would like to see if I can create a mini PDA / PC of sorts with just things I would want on it.

My real question is shall I stick with the symbian OS on it for the moment and try editing things around in it or is it possible to format it with another OS such as Linux where I can create more of a computer based interface and program applications from that (also if its a linux install I could possibly install gens).

I'm sure the community can help me out with this.

Also because I'm relatively new to this, consider me to have no knowledge in the subject. :P

Thanks

To my knowledge, there's no way of getting an OS other than Symbian on the N95. Sorry =P

Oh man, no worries anyway.

I'm gonna have a go at some Python coding on it and seeing if I can get anywhere with that.

Thanks for the reply Overlord.

Hmm, apparently someone has gotten Android to run on the Nokia N95. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a download to it...

Well, you could take a crack at editing the Symbian OS code yourself and compiling your own build for your needs. It was open sourced recently, but I dunno if the kinks were taken out (like the reliance on a proprietary and discontinued commercial compiler instead of the GNU counterpart) already or not.

The latest Symbian (I believe Symbian^3) can use the Nokia SDK, which uses GCC 4.x.
