N9 PR1.1 Update released

Hi all,

 

just to inform you that we have now started to publish PR1.1 update for N9 (software update version number 20.2011.40-4). The updates are published in waves and your phone will display a notification once it's available for you.

 

Some of the new features include:

  • NFC tag reading to instantly interact with NFC tags
  • Music controls on lock screen
  • Photo and video shooting with color filters: black & white, sepia, vivid, negative, solarize
  • More powerful multitasking with improved memory handling
  • Swype for fast typing
  • Faster MfE synch, synchronizing only active folders
  • Noice cancellation reduces background noise so that your friends hear you better
  • Close apps easily with swiping down, this now on by default
  • New indicators for standby screen like charging and calendar
  • etc.

 

Enjoy!

 

BR,

yvonne

Re: N9 PR1.1 Update released

This is brilliant news!! I know Nokia are often quite secretive regarding changes and bug fixes in firmware, but there appears to be a serious issue with a number of 64GB devices (particularly Austrian black 64GB handsets). Serious stability issues, random reboots and app crashes plaguing a number of these devices

Do you know if there might be a fix to address this particular problem?


The N900 suffered a similar random reboot issue just after launch that was completely fixed in the first firmware release (start of 2010). The key thing here is many users are waiting to send back their phones if they are genuinely faulty but at the same time, many will wait to try PR1.1 if it addresses this problem.

Do we know if there have been any stability improvements, particularly targetting Finnish made 64GB models?

I have mine boxed to be sent back to the supplier today (to order again at a later date), if PR1.1 solves the problems I'll definitely hold off and I'm sure a number of other users will too.

Re: N9 PR1.1 Update released

N9 is not just a smartphone..

It's piece of art..  It's a(my) dream phone..  Inside and outside..

I had the chance to play with it in a store and i fall in love with it..

This OS must continue with Nokia.., is GREAT..

It's a pitty that i can't buy it..  629euro (16Gb) is a lot for me..

Too pitty..

After downloading the ~230MiB package the update starts, but sits there for several minutes at 0%. Then the update is aborted with "Update interrupted. Try again / Cancel". Of course, when I try again the same happens.
I've already tried the clean-function (full clean, not just reset) to start with a fresh state. It didn't help, the same error :smileysad:
Is there an option to reflash the firmware entirely from PC?

 

[edit] I'm not the only one :smileysad:

Re: N9 PR1.1 Update released

I think N950 got "offline" install a week or so ago. So I think it will be available for N9 also at some point.

Re: N9 PR1.1 Update released

I think you just don't wait long enough. After download and starting the update-process the 0% were shown for about 10-15 minutes before starting. Whole update after download takes about 45-60 minutes.

Re: N9 PR1.1 Update released

Mine got to about 30% after about 15 mins, now it is at a black screen with red text:

"Rescuing software update
Please do not interrupt.
10%"

This is not good.. installing the software update on a phone that is suffering serious stability issues :smileysad:

Re: N9 PR1.1 Update released

It's not that I didn't wait long enough. I didn't touch the device while the updater ran. It simply aborts all by itself after several minutes. In the background you can see flight mode is enabled, and before running the updater I also disabled background internet connections, just to be sure. So there shouldn't be any interference.

 

Meanwhile I noticed that even the Clean device option isn't cleaning everything. The apt cache is still filled, and the root-password isn't reset. Not that I can su to root, to clean said cache: devel-su now gives me the "can't set groups: operation not permitted" treatment :smileysad:

 

That clean-flash-option would come in very handy now.

Re: N9 PR1.1 Update released

Not really sure why this is in nokia usa.

 

What comes to update the phone I did notice that there will be pop up about phone in flight mode and it ask turn on wifi. I always did press NO and update did continue.

 

Just wondering if that has something to do with problems with the update if people not notice that prompt and then device will not move on with the update. I did use 3G to download the update and not wifi so that might be reason why I got the wifi prompt during he install.

I said yes and it continued so it looks like it doesn't effect the update process.

Yes but if people do not notice that and just left the phone and comes back later. Does it effect to update if user does not follow what happens in the screen during the update.

Re: N9 PR1.1 Update released

Saying yes, no or ignoring it has no bearing on the update process. It continues regardless and auto reboots at the end.

My phone is also rescuing itself now from the update. After about 30 % the update process stopped and it asked for security code, I tried my code but it didn´t accept it, so I booted the phone.
