News of Sailfish running on the N9 has been circulating the interwebs for a bit. I’ve been using it on one of my N9s for a few days, and made this little video showing it off. http://youtu.be/u5ii7k-OYM8 Now, the easiest way to install it is to follow the guide for installing Nemo and replacing the Nemo.tar.bz2 […]

This is actually super cool! It may be over a year since the last Software Update, and nearly two years since device announcement, but the Harmattan community are still finding little secrets left behind by the team. By going into Settings > About and tapping NOKIA a few times in quick succession, you get a […]

#N9Hacks: Dark Theme for Stock Twitter client (+ more features)

With the introduction of inception, the Harmattan community received the ability to replace system apps with their own versions (the status bar modification was perhaps the most well known). Know, thanks to the help of the community, the stock client has received a UI overhaul, with a dark theme thanks to coderus. Its the same […]

THP never ceases to amaze me. Just when I thought he had out done himself with apkenv, he has brought the Harmattan community Cyclotron. The app (well mod really) takes the swipe to a new level, by allowing the user to swipe diagonally from the status bar to switch between apps. I can’t really do […]

First we heard that there would be app compatibility layers for Harmattan. Then Nitdroid came along, and like it did on the N900, it gave us a near-complete version of Android to use on our N9/50s. Well, now we have a compatibility layer of sorts, that allows you to run a very small number of […]

Video: #N9Hacks: GUI for Multiboot

| September 11, 2012 | 14 Replies

This is something I had been waiting for since the N9 got dual-booting abilities (and then multi-boot). It is still an early version, but the GUI is apparently easily customisable. We may see some amazing and polished dual/multi-boot solutions. I preferred having a boot image for NitDroid, let alone an actual GUI where you can […]

Honestly, I’m not surprised. The Nitdroid Project managed to get ICS on to our N9s before lots of Android devices were updated or even released with that update, and now, it has happened again. Although no official release has been made, there is a video showing the N9 running the latest iteration of Android, Android […]

HowTo: Fix Mail For Exchange with Hotmail/Live/Outlook for N9

| August 20, 2012 | 36 Replies

Something that every N9 user that uses MFE with a Live/Hotmail/Outlook account has been affected by, is that the N9 no longer syncs correctly. This was caused by Microsoft updating some protocols or something technical like that, and Nokia not rectifying the situation. Here are two really quick fixes that have not only worked for […]

This one is quite out in the Store just yet, but the author has published over at TMO that V1.6 of Home Screen Settings is coming soon (pending Store Q&A & Translations). The update adds a feature I had wanted to implement and never got around to, as I didn’t know how. (Turns out the […]

I’ve been using this for the last month thanks to my friend Arie ( @EverythingN9 ). I wanted to bring this to you guys earlier, but the method to install the patch was rather involved for the everyday user. I’ve recently learned that N9 Quick Tweak (N9QT) has this option as part of it’s extensive […]

I’ve been meaning to bring this to you guys for a while, especially since there has been lots of developments with both these tweaks, including my modding aim to have battery percent in the status bar. (Note: I didn’t do it, couldn’t learn QT quick enough). So, first up is Unrestricted System UI. What this […]

This feels a lot like the iOS vs. Jailbreak cat and mouse game. The N9 was just updated to PR 1.3, and one of the 1000 improvements was a bug fix that patched the hole exploited by Inception. Well, V 0.2 is out now, so those that were holding out to update in case their […]
