For the people who do not get OTA and also cannot download via NSU. But, you must have run and fail NSU at least once. This works:
Download Latest firmware (its name is Latest PR1.2 global) from here: http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/nokia_N900.php. You need to enter your devices imei code to download file.
Navigate to this folder: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Nokia\Nokia Service Layer\A\nsl_service_module_00001\vpls\http://www.dsut.online.nokia.com.oti...Products\rx-51 (THIS IS WINXP OR VISTA FOLDER, IT MAY DIFFER IN DIFFERENT OS'S)
overwrite the .bin file you downloaded in step 1 to this folder.
5. Then, run NSU.

To all of you who cannot update OTA; the prolem seems to be in using certain apps like brainparty, tux etc etc
Try this command, hopefully you'll find the 'continue' option below the backup option..it worked smooth for Me.
Open x-terminal, become root by typing
and thn type
Happy PR1.2 (hopefully)!!
what the user should do and expect to get a clean upgrade of the 1.2 firmware.
And I prefer not using any command line flashers or strange workaround procedures. This should work using nokia's main upgrade software intended for any customer.
Look, I want a clean update, which I though that the Nokia Software Updater did. (A reflash).
So, would someone explain what the hell is going on. Why can't I update using the Nokia Software updater as it stops every time at 33.6 MB.
Seriously, how hard can this be.
"TFT resistive touchscreen, 65K colors" oups....i think there are more than 65k,16 milion,or at last that's what they say on n900 specifications in nokia's web site
We post it a million times. Maybe a zillion. Don't expect all your questions to be automatically answered. Search. I personally post yesterday the direct link which i were download the .bin file of the PR 1.2 . It was 166MB if i remember correctly. I also downloaded and the memory .bin file. I made a 100% clean installation. New firmware and a memory format. It took me 25 minutes to download and install. The memory file was more than 200MB... I bought this device before 3 months,and i didn't knew anything about Linux. And still don't,but when ever want anything, i search the 'net and learn. Youtube,Google...my best friends. Do the same.
