Setting up:

  • You can launch the EKA2L1 directly and interacts with emulator through GUI, or interacts directly through command line.
  • Use –help if you want to interact through command lines and need list of commands.
  • Install new device through Files/Install device.

  • EKA2L1 has a GUI to install new device. With the GUI, go to Files/Install device. installdevice
  • Your companion En should guide you through the installation. If a sudden crash appears or device revert installation because of falsify reason, please contact the developer for support and fixes if neccessary.
    • If part like determine the Symbian version failed, you should also contact the developers to help improve this automated process.

Change data directory:

  • EKA2L1 try to store data within a single folder. By default it’s a folder named “data” in the same directory as the executable. You can change the path through GUI in File/Preferences, or change it in config.yml with the key data-storage.
