10.4: Add iSync 2.2 support for Nokia NSeries N91 Phones
Want to add support for your Nokia N91 to iSync? Here's how. In the Finder, control-click on the iSync application and choose Show Package Contents. Then navigate into Contents -> Plugins -> ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice -> Contents -> Plugins -> PhoneModelsSync.phoneplugin -> Contents -> Resources. In that folder, modify MetaClasses.plist (make a backup first!) using the below code.

Here's what you need to add to the file:
<key>com.nokia.N91</key>
  <dict>
    <key>Identification</key>
    <dict>
      <key>com.apple.cgmi+cgmm</key>
      <array>
        <string>Nokia+Nokia N91</string>
        <string>Nokia+Nokia N91-1</string>
      </array>
      <key>com.apple.gmi+gmm</key>
      <array>
        <string>Nokia+Nokia N91</string>
        <string>Nokia+Nokia N91-1</string>
      </array>
    </dict>
    <key>InheritsFrom</key>
    <array>
      <string>family.com.nokia.serie60v2.3</string>
    </array>
    <key>Services</key>
    <array>
      <dict>
        <key>ServiceName</key>
        <string>com.apple.model</string>
        <key>ServiceProperties</key>
        <dict>
          <key>ModelIcon</key>
          <string>NOKN91.tiff</string>
          <key>ModelName</key>
          <string>N91</string>
        </dict>
      </dict>
    </array>
  </dict>
I've also found an icon to use for the phone.

This hint works for the N80 phone as long as you use "N80-1" wherever you see N91. If you had followed the instructions to add an N80 prior to installing 10.4.7, and found that it broke after the update, you just have to re-do it.

Some enterprising person has even posted an icon for the N80 so your isync panel icon looks like your phone. Search for N80 and "isync" and you should be able to locate the tiff - which goes into the isync application using the same "show package contents" hint.

This doesn't work for me. I tried both with the string "N80" and "N80-1" (slightly intelligent). iSync finds the phone but says it is unsupported.

Can you cut'n'paste your metclasses.plist entry here?

You can also use this method for the N73. In my case, I just copied the N70 section of the MetaClasses.plist file, and changed every occurence of "N70" to "N73" in the copied section. Except that I left the ModelIcon pointing at NOKN70.tiff because I am lazy and the N70 looks exactly like the N73 at that tiny scale.

Here's the additional section if you are even lazier than me:


<key>com.nokia.N73</key>
	<dict>
		<key>Identification</key>
		<dict>
			<key>com.apple.cgmi+cgmm</key>
			<string>Nokia+Nokia N73</string>
			<key>com.apple.gmi+gmm</key>
			<string>Nokia+Nokia N73</string>
			<key>com.apple.usb.vendorid-modelid</key>
			<string>0x0421/0x043A</string>
		</dict>
		<key>InheritsFrom</key>
		<array>
			<string>family.com.nokia.serie60v2.3</string>
		</array>
		<key>Services</key>
		<array>
			<dict>
				<key>ServiceName</key>
				<string>com.apple.model</string>
				<key>ServiceProperties</key>
				<dict>
					<key>ModelIcon</key>
					<string>NOKN70.tiff</string>
					<key>ModelName</key>
					<string>N73</string>
				</dict>
			</dict>
		</array>
	</dict>

I tried this for n73. I just pasted it in at the end but it didn't work. When will they update iSync?
