N900: Quick fix for new firmware error: "Install using NSU"

| January 15, 2010 | 21 Replies

Hi guys, I have been sitting and waiting for my phone to say there is a new update and as some of you might know I finally got that message yesterday BUT then it said i cannot install, and I must do via NSU:

Error

Error

I have been trying on NSU since yesterday (about 30 times) but still nothing so I had a look around and from what I gathered from some of the Maemo.org forum and Wiki is that it is not that the update is not available but because I’ve installed something the phone does not like and it’s conflicting, so i tried installing a bunch of stuff…but still nothing so NSU, re-install the same version and then try the update, and wooohooo it’s letting me update!!!:

Update: A lot of people have had issues with PC Suite so if you want to avoid using that, just backup then uninstall all the apps on your phone and it should work fine. and if you have already tried with NSU and failed or crashed your phone, use the Nokia Maemo flasher tool to recover it.

I know that I now have to re-install everything, but this is a small price to pay for the update…I’d rather do this then keep waiting for an update that won’t come and also trying to do long winded steps which might not work!

Note: When I did the update, personal data was not deleted so I just had to restore the backup of the application list which downloads and installs most (not all) things back to the phone (just had to press “accept” a few times).

All is good now and if Jay does not beat me to the punch I’ll try make a quick review of the new features!
