PyS60 installation 2nd and 3rd edition devices:
Installing Python for S60 on your phone:
1. Download the latest Python for S60 interpreter application for free according to your phone model from here: sourceforge.net/projects/pys60
Basically you need to get 2 files:
a) The Python interpreter itself: PythonForS60_.....SIS
For example for 2nd edition phones:
PythonForS60_1_3_18_2ndEd.SIS (for phone models such as: 6600, 6630, 6670, 7610, ...)
PythonForS60_1_3_18_2ndEdFP3.SIS (for phone modes such asl: N70, N90, ...)
For example for 3rd edition phones:
PythonForS60_1_3_18_3rdEd_selfsigned.SIS (for phone model such as: N80,N93, ...)
2. Install the downloaded files in the same way as any other S60 application but in the order of a) then b) (as downloaded) via Bluetooth, Nokia PC Suite, or USB cable to your phone.
Note: on 3rd ed. phones you need to create a folder named 'Python' to your e: drive (memory card) to which you will transfer your self written scripts later.
Check here the Nokia S60 devices to find out which edition and feature pack your phone Model has, in order to be able to download the correct kind of PyS60 interpreter. Select your phone model and look for Developer Platform, there it says if it is e.g. S60 3rd Edition or S60 2nd Edition, Feature Pack 3 ... phone. On the download site of the PyS60 interpreter inside the file name you will then recognise e.g. _3rdEd_ refers to S60 3rd Edition or _2ndEdFP3_ refers to 2nd Edition, Feature Pack 3.
