If you haven’t been warned yet, than enable internet connection and refresh app manager and you should see the 16.2 MB large Firmware version 3.2010.02-8. It should be available for most of the generic product codes but owners of branded devices might have to wait a bit longer.

Saturday, 02 January 2010 21:33

Written by Apocalypso.

Take The RedPill To Unlock Advance Features & Install DEB Files On Nokia N900

Wednesday, 30 December 2009 20:32

Written by Apocalypso.

redpill_tmIf you are a big fan of the Matrix movie I'm betting you have already heard the pop culture term ‘redpill’. The movie relies on the premise that an artificial reality that is advanced enough will be indistinguishable from reality and that no test exists that can conclusively prove that reality is not a simulation.

Borrowing from the movie, the terms blue pill and red pill have become a popular metaphor for the choice between the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue) and embracing the sometimes painful, sometimes pleasant, truth of reality (red).

Well, in virtual Maemo’s world it is pretty much the same, Application manager normally works in a Blue Pill mode that includes many safety locks in place to reduce the risk of the user accid... .. .

What some of you may or may not already know is that Nokia N900 comes with only one enabled Application catalogue.

It’s default Nokia catalogue which is still not completely cooked and unfortunately doesn't contain as many applications and games as you would expect so I’m pretty sure you’ll need an alternative source of applications and games!

The easiest way would be enabling the pre-configured Maemo Extras repository which is included in the App manager but disabled by default. Enabling is quite simple, just run App mana... .. .
