N900: New Firmware 1.2009.44-1 Now Available

Nokia is rolling out the 1.2009.44-1 update for the N900 over-the-air, if you do not see the 18.5 MB update to Maemo5 in the Application Manager, try refreshing it. If you still do not see the update, it will be because Nokia has not rolled it out in your region yet and you will have to wait.

New Firmware 1.2009.44-1 Now Available For The N900

The 1.2009.44-1 build is only two weeks older than the one the N900 ships with and seems to be a precursor or enabler for the bigger PR 1.1’s OTA update that we can expect soon. This update in itself doesn’t seem to brings much apart from changes to icons of the Application Manager and its behavior after you install an application, now it comes back to the point where you were prior to installing the application.

If you do update, let us know how it went.

How To Wirelessly Update the N900

All of Nokia’s recent Symbian devices support over the air upgrades for the firmware or the device’s own software as well as updates for applications. The N900 running the Maemo 5 OS does that as well and in an even more easier way. It checks for updates once daily and incase any update is found, it notifies the user via a blinking icon. You can click on it to go to the application manager where you can choose individual updates or select update all to install all available updates. In case the update is for the OS, the device will automatically restart once its done.

Watch all of this being done in a video demo by Kirsi, a member of the Maemo 5 UI Team.
