Nokia N900, rilasciato il firmware PR1.2 [changelog]

Da questa mattina è ufficialmente disponibile il tanto atteso firmware PR1.2 per il Nokia N900. Per evitare di intasare i server, il colosso finlandese ha deciso di renderlo disponibile inizialmente solo per il mercato del Regno Unito, mentre noi potremo scaricarlo via FOTA solo da domani 26 maggio come anticipato in questo articolo.

Se avete la smania di aggiornare e non riuscite ad attendere potete procedere con l’aggiornamento manuale scaricando i file necessari da questa pagina del sito Nokia e seguendo le istruzioni descritte qui. E’ importante sapere, però, che tale procedura cancellerà tutti i vostri dati, quindi eseguite un backup completo prima di iniziare!
