For those lucky developers owning a Nokia N950, there is now a firmware update available, see Nokia Developer. Excerpt:
    Nokia N950 Beta2 OneClickFlashers

    Description
    The Nokia N950 phone OneClickFlashers enable you to update a Nokia N950 phone to the Beta2 firmware version from a Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac, or Linux computer.

    News
    The Beta2 firmware release is now provided in the OneClickFlashers. The Beta2 release provides a number of bug fixes and functional changes, along with the addition of a number of features and applications (Nokia Store, a Twitter client, and a WiFi hotspot application among others). 'Developer Edition' marking and the SDK installer have been removed.

Now that the 'Developer Edition' marking is removed in the firmware update, one could speculate if Nokia is planning to release the device in larger numbers.

One can speculate, of course, but not the slightest chance for that exists in the real world.

A new firmware update is on the way for the Nokia N950, see Nokia Developer. Excerpt:
    New release of the Nokia N950 software is coming soon... prepare!
    The N9 team is in the final stages of preparing an update to the Nokia N950 image, which will align the software more with the Nokia N9 product image.

    To enable a smooth upgrade to the new image N950 users should ensure that they have the latest release of the firmware on their devices (34-2 or Beta2) - SSU will fail with Beta1. So, if you have not done it already, update to Beta2 now using the OneClickFlashers.

    For more information about upgrading from Beta1 to Beta2 please also check out this webpage.

A new firmware update has been released for the Nokia N950, see Nokia Developer. Excerpt:
    N950 software update available over the air
    We have released an Nokia N950 software update (39-5).

    Currently it is available over the air, withcorresponding oneclickflasher-tools available later. To initiate the update, please click on the "deviceupdate"-notification in the events screen.

    Please ensure that your device is running "beta 2" before updating it. The update does not work on older versions, and you run the risk of rendering your device unusable if you apply the update to a device that contains an older image - then you will have to wait for the oneclickflashers.

    There is no need to update the SDK as applications written using Qt SDK 1.1.3 will work with this new release.

    For details about the release, refer to the release notes.

    So update your software, and enjoy.

I've been trying to update the N950 for 5 hours now.

The update (~ 280 MB ) gets downloaded via WiFi quite quickly and without any problems, but when the actual update process starts after downloading, it gets stuck at 0% and after some 10 minutes it quits with "Update failed - The update was interrupted" message.

I retried it so many times that I guess it just won't do it. Probably unless I wipe the device clean by reflashing it again with Beta 2 firmware and then retrying the PR1.1 update. Or maybe OneClickFlashers will do, when Nokia releases it for PR1.1.

I'm not the only person with this problem, some other people reported having the same problem on the meego.com forums.... But seeing problems with the new firmware people are reporting on the meego.com forum, I'm actually not sure anymore if I still want to update...

As I expected, it took reflashing the device with Beta2 to wipe it clean, and then the PR1.1 update went smoothly. Which totally contradicts the idea of an OTA update Wink

Anyway, the nicest thing in this update is probably Swype support. Now even the small virtual portrait keyboard got usable.

Firmware PR1.2 is on the way for the Nokia N950, see Nokia Developer. Excerpt:
    N950 Heads up for Harmattan 1.2 beta developer release
    We will be shortly releasing a developer edition of MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan 1.2 beta (feel free to crack a joke v 1.2 here) to developers with Nokia N950 Developer Device. The goal of this early access release is to enable developers to verify that their applications do not exhibit any regressions in the new platform version.

    This release will be available as a one-click-flasher for Nokia N950 Developer Device. In other words, in order to participate in this beta you need to already have a Nokia N950 Developer Device.

    We have done our best to ensure full binary compatibility from Harmattan 1.0 and 1.1 (and 1.1.1 Arabic) to Harmattan 1.2, but we want to offer developers the opportunity to test and verify their apps on the real thing before actual global roll out of the consumer release. There will be also small changes between beta and final consumer release, mostly focusing on ensuring release robustness and performance.

    There is at least one known change in the Harmattan 1.2 (and 1.1.1 Arabic) that is impacting developers: The system font change. See blog posts The default font will change -- to bigger and better (18th Dec 2011), Font change part 2: playing with the line height (21st dec 2011) and Font change part 3: Flexible UI layouts (5th Jan 2012) for more details.

    More information on the release features and fixes, distribution and Nokia N9 support will be available later. The Nokia N950 Developer Device program was closed in the summer, and thus no new entrants are accepted.

Harmattan 1.2 beta is avaialble for the Nokia N950, see Nokia Developer. Excerpt:
    N950 Harmattan 1.2 beta now available as OCF for Nokia N950
    As you may have noted in our earlier blog post (Heads up for Harmattan 1.2 beta developer release (16-Jan-2012)) we are now releasing the MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan 1.2 beta version number 3.2012.02-6_PR_RM680 for Nokia N950 Developer Device. The release is available as OCF (One Click Flasher).

    Harmattan 1.2 comes with a number of user experience improvements making it appealing for consumers. Five new supported languages, face recognition, enhanced copy-paste, software update notifications for applications and games in Nokia Store, folders in application view just to name a few.

    There are a few additional things for you to consider before taking this upgrade. Read on...

    No downgrading to Harmattan 1.0 or 1.1(.1)
    The N950 (or Nokia N9) software version cannot be downgraded. This unfortunately means, that it is not possible to go back and forth between different releases. Once you take an update you are stuck with that release until there is next version available. The challenge a developer is facing is that big portion of consumers are still running Harmattan 1.0 or 1.1 where personally one would always love to run the latest and brightest release.

    A majority of all users are already running Harmattan 1.1 instead of 1.0. The penetration of Harmattan 1.1 over 1.0 is steadily growing as more and more people are updating their devices, and factories are pushing new devices with latest software. And in China, all (003 variant) devices are running minimum Harmattan 1.1 as we never shipped Harmattan 1.0 there.

    This means that you as a developer, should always ensure your app is running smoothly on both Harmattan 1.0 and 1.1, depending on your target demography. If you have only one device on your possession you have a dilemma. Will you update to Harmattan 1.2 and enjoy all cool new stuff but simultaneously risk missing a glitch on 1.0/1.1, or will you stick to Harmattan 1.0/1.1 for now?

    Naturally you can buy a stock of Nokia N9’s for your testing needs. But if that is not working for you then you can rely on the Remote Device Access (RDA) service as well as the SDK QEMU tool.

    Upgrading your N950 to Harmattan 1.2 beta
    Due to the above reasons, the upgrade from Harmattan beta 2 (same as 1.0) or 1.1 is not offered as over the air SSU on N950. A developer needs to make a conscious and informed decision to go and flash the device with latest software.

    While at it, the OCF will erase the device, you can use backup-restore from Harmattan 1.0 (1.2011.34-2) and 1.1 (2.2011.39-5) but not from beta 1 (1.2011.22-6 or older). Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Included fixes, limitations, known issues and so on
    We have listed the most significant bug fixes in release notes and marked the fixed items in bugzilla. We excluded a long list of fixes e.g. on localization / terminology. Also, we put together information about known issues, limitations and differences between Nokia N950 developer Device and Nokia N9 for your convenience in the Release Notes. Suggest you read it carefully.
