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.
this is the 3rd day since the latest firmware released world wide but still the same downloading update failed..
n900 downloading update failed :C everytime.. i have no idea why its happen..this is not funny nokia..
manual firmware installation is hard to do..for some people its easy..i cant even update via OTA bcoz i can only do back up but i cant install..
im so unlucky d@mn..w t f NOKIA..
I've just updated my N900 to the latest software and it's super freek now works really perfect though I hated the new virtual keyboard but it's ok once you get used to it, I still need time but other than that no glitches or what so ever and noticiably faster than before. it's more than what you imagine for sure really worthy updating and owning such device
can you tell me where save the dowanloaded fle in N900 phone memory? i have dowanloaded some file but i can not find out this.So please help to know abt this.

Now you understand ?
Think if Nokia made only 3 models. Prrrr scary....
See the link below:
This shows that Nokia need to follow other manufacturers and advertise their handsets better.
There has not and will not be a Nokia handset that is good enough for me to change from my iPhone if there is anyone it will be HTC, Nokia are losing their grip!
DT, 28 May 2010 Okay I have been using this phone for a year, I am just wondering is there a way to use the ... morejust update your phone software to pr 1.2 it support this feature "USSD" u can update by NSU or MaemoFlasher do some google searching and u will get it
Anonymous, 28 May 2010Dear Ganpat,
All that you said is 100% correct, i even saw a change in the camera there is ... moreYes, there are some changes to the camera UI like you suggested.
Now to answer your question around the email widget, yes it did not work for me initially, but then I managed to get it work. Its very simple actually. Just go to Email -> Settings, ensure the Update Automatically option is selected and set the Update interval according to your choice (I had set it to 5 minutes).
Then I sent a test mail to my email account and waited for 5 minutes, the test mail appeared on the email widget on the desktop. Voila... Hope this helps!
