So many problems - no solution

So many problems - no solution


I will list out my problems here, and with them happening at the same time,
it is really frustrating and I can only pray someone can get back to me with a solution...

1. when I want to add an online service to my Account (Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Google, Skype, Dropbox, I tried them all) I am always stuck forever at Checking with the loading icon.

2. when I open up Nokia Store, it is forever stuck with the loading icon. Strangely though, I can download and install the tools for Developer Mode.

3. when I open up the browser, ie: Web, Aurora, I can only load Google Search (mobile) and its results page. links, bookmarks, other URL will not load at all. on Web all it shows is a tiny portion of the loading bar, which then stucks there forever.


I tried to find solutions for these problems, including using the Terminal to purge all wifi and proxy settings using the following commands:


  • gconftool --recursive-unset /system/http_proxy
  • gconftool --recursive-unset /system/proxy
  • gconftool --recursive-unset /system/osso

I also tried setting my WiFi network's proxy settings on my phone to No Proxy as well as Manual, with the settings left blank.


I tried rebooting it many times over to no success.


And for everyone's information, my N9 is currently running PR1.3 (40.2012.21-3_PR_005) on MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan. I hope someone out there can pinpoint the root of the cause and provide a solution to the above issues.


Many thanks - I have much hope in this community, thank you!

Re: So many problems - no solution

At no point do you mention having tried resetting device to factory defaults or re-installing/flashing device software as you seem to have liked tinkering under the hood!


Don't expect to get anywhere with Dropbox as currently using incorrect API, look at cuteBox 1.1 from here instead:

Happy to have helped forum in a small way with a Support Ratio = 37.0

Re: So many problems - no solution

Those two are within my considerations as last resort, which I unfortunately still had to execute.
I reset the phone to factory settings and tried connecting to all my services again...


Nope, still not working.
I was exploring my options and decided to open a virtual access point on my WiFi router.
Turns out that got things working now.


So I think it could be incompatibility with my prior WiFi settings.
Not sure where and how, though.
