So, are S60v2 and S60v3 open source?

When Nokia open sourced Symbian, did they open sourced Symbian S60v2 and S60v3 too, or just S60v5 (aka Symbian^1), Symbian^2 and Symbian^3?

In plain english, is it possible to get the code for S60v2 and S60v3, without any S60v5 code?

P.S.: Yes i know that Symbian is now closed, but dumps of the open source code exist on sourceforge.

The only fully open source version was Symbian^3 (which more or less contains S60 5th Edition + updates, and what used to be Symbian OS v9.5/v10 before the open sourcing started).

No earlier versions of Symbian or S60 are open source (except for the partially open Symbian^2).

So, for actual S60 v2, v3 and v5 the source code is not and never has been available to anyone except S60 licensees.


open, s60v2, s60v3, source
