On a recent blog entry in Nokia's symbian blog at symbian.nokia.com, Nokia clarified once more the procedure to access the Symbian's Source Code that is hosted by the Symbian Foundation. According to the blog entry there were many requests to Nokia for providing access to the FTP

Nokia doesn't have access on the Symbian's Foundation FTP that hosts all past source code, PDKs, documentation, etc. They are still in the process of making all the legal moves into transferring and maintaining all the resources from the Symbian Foundation in a new open way. This was heavily stated on their recent post here:

We have had many requests for access to the FTP provided by Symbian Foundation. This FTP allows access to current Platform source code that was hosted by the Symbian Foundation as well as PDKs, documentation, etc.

Please note that we cannot provide login details for this FTP. To obtain a login, you must send a request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We are still working hard behind the scenes to make available material on this site and more details will be updated here in the near future.

If you are looking for application developer documentation and kits, then take a look at the Symbian resources over at our sister site Forum Nokia. And while you are there why not discover and learn about developing applications for Qt, Nokia’s application development environment of choice.


We hope to see the source code available again as soon as possible, and hosted in a way easily adaptable by developers in order to submit changes, fixes and patches for the future versions of Symbian! It's a must for growing a community in an open ecosystem
