Warning! Leaked PR1.2 may damage your phone!

4 May 2010Entry by

As I mentioned in previous news N900 was released in Hong Kong with PR1.2 software, just a day after Chinese websites announced leaked update, that you can flash to your device.

Changelog according to user who tried this update includes smoother scrolling, FM transmitter forcing for devices without hardware, new app manager and flash version and working USSD codes without using additional widget. Image to reflash N900 was uploaded to several sharing servers and are still available for download. Nevertheless Nokia reacted to this quite fast and tweeted warning message:

@nokconv Be careful! Unofficial #N900 v1.2 firmware on web causing damage to devices! Don’t download! Follow @nokconv for official announcements

This is the main reason why I won’t give you any links to download or try this unofficial PR1.2or not even trying myself. Normally I encourage to use software from extras-devel and extras-testing, but this time it’s different, flashing device with firmware from uncertain sources, completely detached from Maemo community, is far more dangerous.
