THE PORTAL OF NEWS RELEATED TO NOKIA
Get ready to download the latest software update, known as PR1.2. Why should you update? To receive a huge array of added features, such as video calling, improved photography and enhancements to Nokia Drive, plus so much more.
Last week, the Nokia software update team began slowly rolling out this new update to just a handful of select countries. One week later, this update is now available to more than 70 per cent of all handsets, with more receiving the updates over the coming weeks. If you do not see an update notification, just wait a little while more, or contact your local operator to find out if it they have enabled it.

So, here’s the thing: Aegis, the security framework on the Nokia N9, has been busted wide open — thanks an exploit known as Inception. Much like root access on Android, the software allows developers to write apps (and users to install apps) that take full advantage of the N9’s capabilities. Naturally, exploits such as these aren’t for everyone — in particular, Inception requires a familiarity with the command terminal — but if you’ve ever wanted to load custom kernel modules, activate disabled hardware features or apply community-provided upgrades, a quick and relatively painless method is now here. A few words of caution: users mustn’t upgrade their firmware beyond PR1.2 without first confirming that Inception is compatible, and because the exploit allows applications to gain full access to the phone, users should only install apps from trusted sources.
