So, for Funambol sync with OneMediaHub.com
on the older Nokias (S60v3):
1) download and install on the phone the Nokia fix (link above)
2) restart the phone (to be safe)
3) with the phone's web browser go to https://onemediahub.com
4) you'll be asked what to do with the new certificate (SHA2-signed Symantec Class 3
Secure Server CA - G4)
5) save it to the phone (you'll find it in the certificate store, Trusted Sites)
6) and now you can use native Sync on the phone to update your Funambol account on
I've just done a successful sync of my E73 with OneMediaHub to confirm.
If you haven't done the sync in a while, you may need to update the phone's sync
profile server from my.funambol.com
It's actually still a nice online SyncML service. Hadn't used it in a while,
thanks for the nudge Daniel!
