10.4: Add iSync Support for the Nokia E60 Phones
Here are the instructions to get iSync Version 2.4 (501.2) (on Mac OSX 10.4.9 - Build 8P2137) working with Nokia E50. The Bluetooth pairing is smooth and should not create any problems, but natively you are not able to Sync with this device.

In the Terminal:
$ cd /Applications/iSync.app/Contents/PlugIns/
$ cd ApplePhoneConduit.syncdevice/Contents/PlugIns
$ sudo cp -R Nokia-E61.phoneplugin Nokia-E50.phoneplugin 
$ cd Nokia-E50.phoneplugin
Change all occurrences of E61 to E50 in Info.plist:
$ cd Contents
$ mv Info.plist ori.Info.plist 
$ sed 's/E61/E50/g' ori.Info.plist >Info.plist
$ rm ori.Info.plist
Read on for the last few steps...

Change all occurrence of E61 to E50 in Resources » MetaClasses.plist:
$ cd Resources
$ mv MetaClasses.plist ori.MetaClasses.plist
$ sed 's/E61/E50/g' <ori.MetaClasses.plist >MetaClasses.plist
$ rm ori.MetaClasses.plist
Change the value of com.apple.usb.vendorid-modelid in MetaClasses.plist from 0x0421/0x044D to 0x0421/0x04C9:
$ mv MetaClasses.plist ori.MetaClasses.plist
$ sed 's/0x044D/0x04C9' <ori.MetaClasses.plist >MetaClasses.plist
$ rm ori.MetaClasses.plist
You may also want to change the icon appearing in iSync to match your phone. The image is com.nokia.E50.tiff. Respect the size, format (tiff), and the compression (LWZ) of the original file.

Uh, we talkin' about the E60 (what it currently says in the title) or the E50 (what it says in the actual hint)?

Anyone got the skinny on the codes for the E70?

the 'hack' enables the E50 of course (sorry for the mistype in the title)

should be

    <key>com.apple.usb.vendorid-modelid</key>
    <string>0x0421/0x0433</string>
    

;-)

you can also use in-place sed editing (instead of copying and then removing the files)


$ sed -i "" 's/E61/E50/g Info.plist
$ sed -i "" 's/E61/E50/g Resources/MetaClasses.plist

Probably the best way to do this (to avoid altering the actual iSync app, and to generally make the process much easier) would be to package a simple iSync plugin, as described at the Tao of Mac.

Quick question for those who have the phone and are using it:
What functionality does the e50 provide with isync? I assume that it allows 2-way syncing of address book and ical (meaning that if I add or modify an entry on the phone it will be updated on my mac at next sync)
However I'd also like to know:
*is it possible to send sms via bluetooth to the phone to then be sent out?
*how does one send general files/documents to the phone - pdf, text etc, and can they be set to sync?
Heaps of thanks in advance for your replies!

Hi! For the sed command I do get

$ sudo sed 's/E61/E50/g' ori.Info.plist >Info.plist
-bash: Info.plist: Permission denied

sudo does not help. What shall I do?

THANKS!
Oliver

Thank you very much for the fix to iSync. This has got to be one of the most annoying things about owning a mac.

At first the fix didn't work until I changed the line below

$ sed 's/0x044D/0x04C9' <ori.MetaClasses.plist >MetaClasses.plist

and put a g before the closing ' as per the first sed command.

Can someone give me a link to the "E50 tiff" icon so that I can plug it into isync?
