Talk about Nokia News Overload.

Nokia N9 PR1.2 Update is on time as promised and as mentioned by Michael. Earlier than the 29th Feb expectation.

I’ve also got a bunch of other updates. Skype yay 🙂 I don’t have to wait around for the 900.

Cheers Antti for the tip!


Make sure it’s charged. It won’t update in case it runs out of juice. Even if it looks like you’ve got enough.

Now it’s ok


Right – off to uni.

    anyone updated their phone in Norway yet ? no sim lock or operator branding, but my N9 does state that no update is available ?!?!?!?

  • @addict:

    You got an OTA update? Nothing here ….

    And no hard feelings about the name mate. 🙂

    • addict

      @Rahul :
      you’re right, an OTA update, nothing via NSU yet.
      30.2012.07-1 file size : 283.7 Mo.
      Anyway, I can’t download it atm. Maybe the servers are overloaded.
      Here are my device details : 20.2011.40.-4_PR_001
      When I bought it in Geneva, it was a _PR009 variant but after flashing it came back as _PR001. Read somewhere that there are very few differences between these two.
      Sorry for poor english, I’m French…

      • Did you flash it to a generic version or are you still on the Swiss variant? And your English is more than fine, it is good.

        • addict

          I didn’t flash my device, Rahul, Nokia did via their technical support at I wasn’t able to update via NSU nor OTA to PR1.1 last November. So I had to send it for care. Originally, it was a …. PR_009 and it is now a PR_001. Nokia changed the software variant. Who knows why…

          If you need some help, you can trust SACEL. Your Nokia device (if bought in EU, Switzerland, Turkey and Iceland) will be repaired for free for two years – Proof of purchase and IMEI needed, of course).

          Nokia Care centers are unable to provide tech support for Nokia N9.

          Good news : PR1.2 installed. Worth the price (I’m kidding). Via data plan : OK. Via Wi-Fi : KO.

  • Ping

    No updates for Taiwan too : (((

  • Wheres PR1.1 for the Swedish handset?? Let alone PR1.2. Ridiculous.

    • Klas

      I got the 1.2 now, and I bought mine in Sweden.

      • jason

        no you don’t. if you bought it before today, you have harmattan 1.2 PR 1.1, this update is to harmattan 1.2 PR 1.2. confusing, no? hooray for the update though, pulling it down now.

  • Mohammed Ayman

    nothing here “I bought my device in Saudi Arabia” and nothing is on navifirm as well

  • hosam eldin

    i am in saudi arabia and until now we dont have any updates also

  • Tiago Silva

    I have it available on Portugal (but mine is an Austrian model bought on I’m doing a backup as we speak.

  • hosam eldin

    android app available or no at the new update ?

  • Ville

    Updating in Finland… Can’t wait to get my hands on to some new features…

  • Charlie

    so far ive found it extremly laggy the new features are there but after upadate the N9 is extremly slow!!

    • Kamo

      Maybe try formatting your phone??

    • noki

      not here…..some things are actually faster

    • Michael Faro-Tusino

      A reboot and soft reset usually helps 🙂

      • ZiiimZooon

        How to Soft reset? 😉

        • incognito

          Settings / Reset / Restore Settings & Settings / Reset / Clear Device

          Make sure you do a proper backup first or you’ll loose everything on your device. After cleared, restore from backup.

  • Kamo

    Any word if that Account issue has been sorted (losing password etc)

    • noki

      completely solved

  • W-A

    mine was slow as well, turning it on and enough and disabling the gmail account solved it. Afterwards you can reactivate the gmail account, but it’s trying to sync something that slows it down in the beginning.

  • Thomas F

    Do you have video call ? just updated my n9, i have folders, dropbos, and other stuff, but no video calling 🙁

    • BJ

      Yeah, where’s video calling? I thought it was supposed to be available in Skype?

      • noki

        still have not found it….not sure how to trigger it

    • Eduard

      no video call just folders…

      • Kevin

        Yes, for fuck sakes, where is that damn video calling?? I didn’t find anything about it in the phone settings, nothing in the newly updated user guide either… WTF?

        In the update notification, if was specifically written that the N9 would handle video calls after the update… HELP 🙁

  • Tiago Silva

    It’s lagging a bit but it’s still updating applications. My slooooow WiFi at work…

    • jason

      yeah, i’ve noticed the lag seems to go after all the updates.

  • jtron

    im in US, i think my n9 is from australia or something, not sure. im trying to refresh update list and its taking forever. when it finally refreshes, no PR 1.2 update. whats up with that?

    • Stephens_Eloped

      My N9 shows nothing as well, but common sense dictates that not all country variants will be released at the same time. If they originally said end of Feb, I’d wait a few more days before you throw your N9 out of the window in a fit of rage. Remember Symbian Anna took MONTHS…..

    • incognito

      What’s the country code of your device? (You can read it on the bottom of the micro-SIM tray)

      • M

        hey which firmware do you recommend to flash to… i was thinking either Central European or maybe the Global one

        • incognito

          There’s no global firmware for the N9. To this day it appears that the Finnish variant always gets the updates on the day one, which is why I’d recommend that one, unless you need some specific keyboard mappings not available in the Finnish firmware (but then again, you can add them on top of it if really needed).

          • M

            thats what i figured. thanks

  • I got mine today too! From Estonia

  • Black N9(wish it was 950) 16GB – waiting for the white one

    Not available yet on my Middle east variant. I guess it would take a week or so more just like the PR1.1.

  • Shaun

    Not unsurprisingly my N9 update landed before my C7 Belle update which is still ‘awaiting approval’.

    After giving the update a while to settle and all the updates to download and data caches to update it’s running great for me.

  • Joana

    Dear Nokia, as you can see N9 turns on emotions of ppl from all over the world. Some call this howling succes, while others call this “last phone of this kind”. How about to start thinking about making money on product we sell instead of keep paying for marketing of product which is poor and unwanted? Who cares about unwanted products? Marketers pomping up money into FUBAR creap to call it marwelous? King is naked. Time to get back to work from fantasies – how do you think WHAT PEOPLE ON THE MARKET WANT? Another N9 successor (hmm… first one rather) or another strange something in role of gadget to use in marketing of dead body? Have you seen the movie with party at Bernie? The actor has won Oscar prise but contrary to All-We-Know-Which-System he had something to show, and he was gifted, not marketed for to hudge money, which could be spend reasoneably for something usefull. Greettings to Nokia’s buyers belowed CEO! All comedies ends at one day with writtings: THE END.

  • M

    Ok so I have what I’m guessing to be an Australian country variant. Any suggestions on which is the best to flash it to?

  • Yemi

    Singapore version here in U.S with no update yet. Im guessing it will be here by 29th. I hope!!

    No flashing for me. I even waited for my E7 Anna and Belle updates patiently.

  • Derek

    australian variant here and no update and nothing in navifirm either.

  • I’m from BANGLADESH! and I love NOKIA N9!!!!

    ”no update yet//
