But while browsing the web, I came across this news:
IMPORTANT NEWS BULLETIN 12-21-2012 FROM NOKIA:According to AAS, the story was originally published by the Slovak website "smartmobil.sk".
Nokia will close open connection to Nokia Firmware Repository during January 2013 and Implement access control.
After this, the Nokia Online login is required to access Nokia Firmware Repository.
During transition phase (December 2012 - January 2013), both open and restricted channels are open, but the open channel will be closed at the end of January 2013
After this, application updates and device software downloading are possible only by using the latest software releases with service NOL login supported.
While for English readers this may be more helpful "Nokia to block unauthorised access to firmware images".
Will be interesting to see how this affects the (already dying) Symbian Modding Scene...
Happy New Year to you too, Nokia :(
