App signed, but still warning popup "it does not contain a signature. It not be from a trusted source"

Hello,

I obtained the signing keys from RIM and signed my application.

 

When I run my application on a device with OS 4.6.1 it works properly. But on OS 5.0 on the same device, I have a warning popup appears 3 times : "The application has attempted to modify your user data. But it does not contain a signature. It not be from a trusted source. would you like to allow this".

I click "yes" and my app works fine.

 

Is there any difference of permissions management between 4.6.1 and 5.0 ?


Thanks.

How was the application installed?  If it was installed OTA using the browser, refer to this link.

There could also be differences in the application control settings between the BlackBerry Smartphones.  The prompt you describe can be controlled via application control settings.  To view/modify them, go to Options, Applications select your application and choose Edit Permissions from the menu.

Hello Mark,
Which permission exactly needs to be changed, because I have tried "Server Network" and "Internet" and the warning is still there ?

Thanks !

The error is: "The application XYZ has attempted to access server.company.com. But it does not contain a signature. It might not be from a trusted source. Would you like to allow this?". Note that it is an HTTPS connection.

 

Thanks for the help.
