Droper is a Symbian Dropbox client that allows Dropbox users to access and modify their synced files and folders. It can also be used as a light-weight Dropbox client for desktop platforms like Windows and Linux.

Note: versions 0.6.0 and higher fix the SSL handshake failures for some phones.

Installation Notes

Droper is compatible with most Nokia Symbian smartphones running S60v3, S60v5 or Symbian^3 (in other words, most Nokia Symbian smartphones manufactured after 2006). For more info about your device, check out Nokia Developer.

Note: S60v3 devices are those equipped with a non-touch screen, whereas S60v5 and Symbian^3 devices are those equipped with a touch screen.

Qt 4.7.3 should be installed before Droper can be used. On S60v5 and Symbian^3 devices, Qt 4.7.3 gets automatically downloaded and installed when installing Droper but on S60v3 devices you have to install Qt 4.7.3 manually. You can get Qt 4.7.3 here.

      Hi. The error happens even if the time is correct, because the SSL library version must be old. One thing you can try to do is make sure you have the latest version of the Symbian OS, and also the Qt library and also Droper. If that doesn’t work then you’re unlucky because your phone then doesn’t support the latest SSL library.

    I see you have symbian s60v3 development experience.
    Could you, please, create VirtualBox image with OS and all things tuned and ready to compile s60v3 (Nokia N73) application source codes?
    Just want to modify SmartCam (http://sourceforge.net/projects/smartcam/files/smartcam_symbian/SmartCamS60_v1_4_1/SmartCamS60_v1_4_1_src.zip/download) so it reconnect after Bluetooth connection interruption.
    If you need Microsoft Windows images, you get it here: https://dev.windows.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/vms/linux/
    (I use gnu/linux, so I gonna compile sources inside VM)

      Hi Shordak.

      I looked at the source code of this application, and it’s not a Qt-based Symbian application. I have only worked with Qt-based Symbian apps and so I don’t know how to compile non Qt ones..
