Most of the certs OPDA is releasing these days arent working ... coz most of the users are getting "Can't install. Constrained by the certificate"... which means that the cert you are using hasnt got your IMEI in it..

To verify this that the cert has got your IMEI or not, please verify through this procedure...

Ok guys, as I see most of you are facing problem understanding the concept, here the screen shots to better explain things..

1. Download the attached devcertlist tool, extract in any directory, put your cert in the same directory...

2. Open a command prompt and go to the same directory where the tool is.

3. Now here is the usage and list of commands you can use...

Usage:
devcertlist [/c] [/i] [/b] [/?] devcertfilename.cer

- /i - List the IMEI's associated with the devcert
- /c - List the capabilities associated
- /b - List the output as bare, suitable for pipelining
- /? - print out the about information and command list
- /nv - switches off IMEI validation so the previous style works

Note that you may only use /b with either /c or /i, you cannot use them together.

4. Now as we need to see whether our IMEI is present in the cert or not, use /i option., so the syntax would be..

devcertlist /i devcertfilename.cer and a list of all IMEIs would be there...

Result would be like this, but it may possible that you cant see your IMEI here as it will scroll to the last IMEIs...

5. So the best thing is to save the command output to any text file so that we can later or check and find our IMEI in that text file.

6. Result would be a text file named IMEI.txt in the same directory..

If the IMEI 3GPP checksum fails an error message is displayed. Also if the length of the IMEI is wrong, that is displayed as a warning but flagged as an error. This is useful for finding out transcription errors for IMEI's

add new IMEIs in an existing cert ... The trick is simple however we arent succeeded to sign and install any app with the trick, but only once <b>fonix232</b> got succeeded... so I am opening this thread for experimental purpose only .. to let you know the trick and see if anyone of us got it working ... The thread will be locked later..., if the trick wont work for anyone..<br />
<br />
First of all get any OPDA cert ... (make sure you have the key also for that cert.)<br />
<br />
Open the cert by double clicking on it and visit the second tab which is <b>Details.</b> Once you open it, there will be an option downside which is <b>Copy to File...</b>...<br />
<br />
<img src="http://i40.tinypic.com/ojp0ko.jpg" border="0" alt="" /><br />
<br />
Clicking on it will start a new Wizard to save the copy of that cert in different formats, click next and you will lend on this page...<br />
<br />
There will be three options to convert your cert to, select the third option.. <b>(.P7B)</b> and click on next..<br />
<br />
<img src="http://i39.tinypic.com/24cf4lz.jpg" border="0" alt="" /><br />
<br />
Give any proper name to the new cert and save it ... <br />
<br />
<img src="http://i44.tinypic.com/2d9xu74.jpg" border="0" alt="" /><br />
<br />
Click on next and finish and the cert will be saved to your specific location with new format (.P7B)...<br />
<br />
<img src="http://i39.tinypic.com/2vbrafr.jpg" border="0" alt="" /><br />
<br />
Now once we have the copy of our cert in different format, we have the IMEIs in decrypted format and thus we can edit and change our IMEI there.. so just open the newly created cert with any Hex Editor and change any one IMEI with your own IMEI... (<b>You just need to scroll a bit lower to find the list of all IMEIs...</b>)<br />
<br />
<img src="http://i44.tinypic.com/fo3kwn.jpg" border="0" alt="" /><br />
<br />
Once you edit it, save it and this time we need to change the format from .P7B to our default one format which is .cer format..., so double click on the new cert and a new Certificates window will open unlike the previous one.. this method is somewhat different.. <img src="images/smilies/icon_wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
<img src="http://i44.tinypic.com/2l8b3ix.jpg" border="0" alt="" /><br />
<br />
Now expand the details on left hand side window and click on certificates, it will show you your .P7B cert ... Just right click on it and select <b>All Tasks -&gt; Export...</b> and it will again start the wizard to convert the format of certs but this time we need to change it to the default one...<br />
<br />
<img src="http://i42.tinypic.com/ixr3i0.jpg" border="0" alt="" /><br />
<br />
This time we need to select the first option and select next.. <br />
<br />
<img src="http://i42.tinypic.com/rrp64p.jpg" border="0" alt="" /><br />
<br />
Again give any proper name and save the file, ....<br />
<br />
<img src="http://i42.tinypic.com/2rf7y2s.jpg" border="0" alt="" /><br />
<br />
Just click on finish and your newly created cert will be there.. now just try to sign any app with the newly created cert and the key... and tell us your results here.. <br />
<br />
<img src="http://i42.tinypic.com/1ewc4g.jpg" border="0" alt="" /><br />
<br />
if this wont help, you can always save your new cert in the second format also to try with different options which is <b>Base-64 encoded X.509 (.CER)</b><br />
<br />
<font color="blue"><font size="+1"><b>Remember this is only an experimental thread, no guarantee that it will work... </b></font></font>

Thanks, followed your instructions, and found my IEMI number, but still strangely enough lots of applications refuse to work, and giving that error messages.

Was able to install few of them, using another certificate which is not mine, using mine gave error message (still mine work with some of the applications!!)

Really got confused
