Navifirm Locked Down; No More Unauthorized Access to Early Software

| April 22, 2013 | 22 Replies

Navifirm is Nokia’s online storage/testing location for upcoming softwares for their devices (regardless of the OS); and its loved by many users as it gives us a glimpse into upcoming updates and fixes for our devices (plus it was a must have for Symbian flashers). Unfortunately as of today navifirm is no longer accessible by the general public; and instead requires an authorized Nokia login to gain access to them, this is of course an attempt to clamp down on early software leaks; or upcoming devices that appear under RM-XXX.

Hopefully we’ll still be able to get our hands on those yummy updates oneway or another.

    Navifirm was one of the biggest reasons consumers liked Nokia.. clowns.

    Oh, well, back to the old days of caching updates and distributing them directly to the interested parties. Not as good as Navifirm as at least one market will need to get the updates to cache them, but beggars cannot be choosers – there will still be a way to re-flash your Nokia even if the carrier who sold it to you doesn’t want you to have updates, or Nokia didn’t deem it worthy of update in your region.
