      @ Benji, After placing the installeserver.exe into C:sysbin you have to restart your phone. This is the last, but very important step. After restarting the phone, try to install any unsigned application.

    I followed all the steps carefully, including copying installserver to sysbin and restarting the phone. Still cannot install any unsigned application.

    Before copying installserver.exe to sysbin, I mad a backup copy of the original installserver.exe that was there. I compared them on the PC (binary file compare) and it turned out that the installserver.exe from your package is exactly identical to the installserver.exe I had in sysbin before.

    Maybe you put the wrong file in your package by accident?

    I have hit a brick wall trying to do this with the problem that I can not install “X-Plore.sisx” because I Get! the error “Certificate Epired” warning, therefore can not proceed with the hack to eliminate this problem ( the whole idea of this hack).
    I’ve tried downloading the file ” X-Plore_wp5sqw9f.sisx and resetting the date to an earlier period (in this case 2010) as recommended by another website but still to no avail.
    How do I overcome this?
    the phone is an 808 with the following specs

    software version is 112.020.0311
    software version date 2012-06-26
    Custom version 112.020.0311.C00.01
    model 808
    type RM-807
    Browser ver 8.2
    Flash ver 4.0
    java ver 2.4

    Can anyone help me with tis
