Nokia explains Harmattan version numbering, see Nokia Developer blog post. Excerpt:
    Harmattan version numbering explained
    There has been numerous questions and some misunderstanding on Harmattan version numbering so we thought it would be the right time to share some light in to the topic. It should be interesting and good to know information for developers.

    A typical version number is formatted as XX.YYYY.WW-#_PR_VVV where XX is the GSM Software Version Number (SVN), YYYY build year, WW build week, # release candidate serial number on that week, and VVV variant configuration code.

    For Nokia N9 the SVN number 10 stands for Harmattan 1.0, 20 for Harmattan 1.1, 22 for Harmattan 1.1.1 (Arabic) and 30 for Harmattan 1.2. For Nokia N950 Developer Device the first SVN number 1 stands for Harmattan 1.0, number 2 stands for Harmattan 1.1 and 3 stands for Harmattan 1.2 beta.

    A variant configuration within a release consists of same software code line but some application data, modules or applications them self may be in or out between variants. E.g., typical space consuming regional variable in devices is the pre-loaded maps data. The VVV variant codes are as following: 001 Europe, 003 China, 005 SEAP, 006 Arabic and 009 Europe-2 which is in fact almost identical to 001. Additionally to these listed variants, there are numerous country and operator specific variants with differences e.g., in selection of preloaded applications or operator specific needs.

    The version number 3.2012.02-6_PR_003_RM680 can be read as ‘Harmattan PR 1.2 (beta) for Nokia N950 that was built week 2 of 2012, 6th release candidate during week 2, production image, Chinese variant for RM680 where RM680 is production code for Nokia N950’.

    Released public software versions for both N950 and Nokia N9 are as following, in release order:

    • Harmattan beta 1 for N950: 1.2011.22-6_PR_RM680 – Not supported and should not be used any more
    • Harmattan beta 2 for N950: 1.2011.34-2_PR_RM680 – Equivalent to Harmattan 1.0 001 variant for Nokia N9
    • Harmattan 1.0 for Nokia N9: 10.2011.34-1_PR_### – 001, 005, 009 and other variants, no 003 or 006 variants
    • Harmattan 1.1 for N950: 2.2011.39-5_PR_###_RM680 – Equivalent with 001 Harmattan 1.1 variants for Nokia N9
    • Harmattan 1.1 for Nokia N9: 20.2011.40-4_PR_### – 001, 003, 005, 009 and other variants
    • Harmattan 1.1.1 for Nokia N9: 22.2011.44-2_PR_### – 006 and other Arabic regional variants, not available for 001, 003, 005, 009 and other equivalent variants
    • Harmattan 1.2 beta for N950: 3.2012.##-#_PR_RM680 - Available soon, release # not disclosed yet.
    • Harmattan 1.2 for Nokia N9: 30.2012.##-#_PR_### - Available later on all variants, release # not disclosed yet.

So... Vodafone in Oz finally got PR1.1 and guess what? I got hit with the "hangs at 0%" glitch.

You know what's more annoying than finding out that after two months of waiting that you have to flash your device anyway and could have done it a hell of a lot sooner?

Well... the fact that save data isn't stored in rootfs. My application settings/game saves have all been retained.

Oh well, at least I'll get PR1.2 with the rest of the world.

As an aside, I guess for anyone a bit iffy about having to do everything again after reflashing, you DO NOT lose progress in games, or settings in other apps, after changing your firmware. All you need to do is re-download your apps (which 95% of will be displayed in your Nokia account anyway) and it'll be like you never lost them.

It looks that it happens when you have some unofficial repositories configured. When I was updating my N9 to PR1.1 last year, it also got stuck at 0%, but someone at FMC suggested to remove all additional repositories. I did it and then the update went through without any problems.

I ended up just reflashing the device, pretty painless process truth be told. It will also mean I won't have the same delay when 1.2 comes out. My main concern was losing application data, but you just lose applications not any information they've stored in the phone (makes sense given there's a separate partition for that stuff) so I just had to redownload my apps, and meant I could leave the stuff I knew I wasn't using.

I know. Two weeks ago I had to reflash the N950 (as the PR1.2 update was only available as OneClickFlashers, not OTA) and then I had to manually reinstall all apps, re-apply all the tweaks, and so on. Took me entire night...

The PR1.2 update for the N950 wiped everything, not just rootfs but also eMMC. I ended up with a factory clean device.

The issue with missing application updates will be solved in firmware update PR 1.2, see Nokia Developer. Excerpt:
    Ensuring a great application update experience
    The upcoming MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan update (to version 1.2) features improved support for application updates.

    The updated platform software will detect and announce updates to applications that are distributed through the Nokia Store.

    And there was much rejoicing!

    However, there are a couple of things developers need to be aware of when creating updates:

    • Do not change the name of the content item or the package name, as the new version will not be displayed as an update (however, it will be visible in the Ovi Store client).

    • Do not change the price point of the content item from free to non-free, please create a separate content item instead.

    See the Nokia Publisher Guide for further details.

Just to revive this thread. PR 1.3 is available now for selected variants with more versions to follow. No change log that I can see.
