Cannot Open SSL Page with Untrusted Certificate on ET1 with RhoElements

We're having some difficulty logging onto sites with *untrusted* certificates (like router HTML pages that employ SSL):

1.  Browsing to an *untrusted* site using the ET1 *without* RhoElements works.

2.  Opening a *trusted* page under RhoElements works.

3.  Attempting to open an *untrusted* page *with* Rho Elements fails. 

Rho Version:  1.0.3.6

There is a post here that concerns SSL on .NET, but it seems to be a separate issue and there is no mention in that thread for the ET1, so I'm opening a new discussion.  We've verified that the device has the current date/time and we've also tried allowing cookies (which was suggested for Windows-based devices).

Under a "normal" browsing session, untrusted sites usually display a warning with the option to continue if the site is known.  On the ET1 under Rho, this invariably comes up as "Location not found" and no further action is possible.

Has anyone else seen this?  Does anyone have an explanation/solution?

Any help would be appreciated.

As a work around you can

As a work around you can ignore all certificates and just navigate to the site anyway using the following configuration setting:

<Navigation>

<BadLinkURI value="file://%INSTALLDIR%\HTML\BadLink.html"/>

<UserAgent value="Mozilla/5.0 (%p) AppleWebKit/%w (KHTML, like Gecko) MotorolaWebKit/%e Safari/%w" />

<VerifyPeerCertificate value="0" />

</Navigation>

However please note that the above setting is unsupported and will only work on Windows Mobile / CE, we are working on fixing this properly.

Has there been an update to this?  We would like to get a root cert installed on the device and use it to verify ssl.  And was there documentation on how to install the root cert?

Attached is a doc on pulling a cert from your desk top and import it into the ET1, hopefully this works or a root cert.

Do you know if there is an automated method or programatic way to load the certificates for a large rollout?
