    Download and install cygwin (Windows only). Make sure you select “make” as it is not included by default


    Download the latest copy of PhoneGap and extract its contents

  • 3. Setup New Project

    • In cygwin, navigate to where you extracted PhoneGap and go into the Symbian directory
  • 4. Hello World

    Open up index.html located in phonegap/symbian/framework/www with your favourite editor. In the body tag, remove the line "Build your phonegap app here! Dude!" and add the line <h1>Hello World</h1>
    In cygwin/terminal, type make. This will produce phonegap-symbian.wrt/app.wgz.

    I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    Thanks for the post. I follow this and I can run the example. However I want to use phonegap with JQuerry mobile. I have a project which work fine on android (API 7) with jqueryMobile 1.1.1, Jquery 1.7.1 and phonegap, but when I use the code on Symbian S60 5th Edition , the program launch without JQuerry, so with no style.
    Is theses version of JQuerry compatible ? If yes, how can I make it work ?
