      This firmware is expected to release for N9 in two weeks :-) .

  • http://blog.segfault.co.in Rahul

    This looks brilliant. Can’t wait for the N9 release. 

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Worth the wait for sure :-) Just two weeks :-)

        • jalyst

           mod plz approve my comment

        • jalyst

           Go to talk[dot]maemo[dot]org & search for a thread called:
          “Nokia N9 PR 1.2 official released.”
          Ask your questions there….

          Being able to do some of your own research helps “a lot”.

  • NMo9

    Cool.. Thanks for the screenshots. Fb & twitter notifications is the biggest thing I currently miss with my N9.

    Can’t wait to get 1.2 on my N9..

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Yup twitter and fb notofications are main things :-) Overall the device is much faster

      • http://callmelocalhost.com Jarno

        Absolutely great, this is one of the main missing features with such a social enabled device.

        Do the notification come with sound as well, like all other notifications like mail, sms and alarms?

        • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

          Yup it does :-) It is so nice to see twitter and fb in lock screen :-)

          • http://twitter.com/BieB85 J.I.

            but no indication on standby screen, below the clock?

          • http://callmelocalhost.com Jarno

            I hope so. That would make it complete.

  • Patrick

    How about copy/pasting from browser? Was really hoping for that!

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Yup it’s nice. The draggable icons are quite big and easy to move around too.

  • Mohammed Jadallah

    what about video calling ?

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Didn’t try it Mohammed :-( will try soon.

      • Anonymous

        thanks allot for the reply will wait for your post about that :)

      • José Eduardo S. C. Xavier

        I don’t have a option to do video calls :s

  • http://twitter.com/bluechrism Chris Martin

    Any change to photo gallery in twitter (and perhaps 3rd party apps).  It’s one of the worst experiences having to scroll through all your photo’s to get to your most recent one when composing a tweet, especially as it has trouble keeping up and it’s easy to see a blank screen that gradually gets filled up with pictures in the photo selector.

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      The recent photos are at the top now and Finally! Default twitter picture upload is integrated into gallery 😀

  • Ano

    Does the DLNA mean that one can stream music from a server?

    • Ermano79

      If Your TV has DLNA, that means u can share your music off your TV

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Yup you can share media wirelessly with DLNA compatible devices

  • Anonymous

    Thanks for the info! But give us more!!!  😉

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Yeah sure will give it a try and will post screenshots here

  • Beckham

    please post front camera, is it for 3rd party app only or can also traditional video call.. pleaseee

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Front camera can’t be accessed in camera UI it’s just for video calls :-)

      • Beckham

        thanx!! may i know, it that work for normal video call?(network operator). not only for gtalk rite?

  • Ravneng

    can you make playlists and delete songs in the music player now? 

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Yup :) 

  • http://twitter.com/BieB85 J.I.

    Can you copy text in received maisl and paste it in others? or just to delete some text before you forward it?

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      No I cant copy texts in email :(

  • Anonymous

    Can you select text in email? How about selecting text in an SMS message?

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      SMS worked mail didnt :-/

  • Razvan

    How about battery drain bug? Sometimes I got 130 mA idle and 5 h of standby with PR1.1

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Nope it looks like same

      • Anonymous

        Yeah I’ve been following most of the nastiest battery drain bugs…
        And for reasons that defy logic, they may have the fixes for many of them in PR1.2.

  • Phumlani

    Dope… I dig it…

  • José Eduardo S. C. Xavier

    The 
    Thread view in email does only works for new emails?

      No all emails including old ones too.

      • José Eduardo S. C. Xavier

        do you need to activate something!? It doesn’t work for me using gmail by google account or Mail for exchange :s

        • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

          Check mail settings and activate threads

          • José Eduardo S. C. Xavier

            Can you tell me where it is?
            I’m missing something :s thanks

          • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

            It’s in Settings -> Applicaions-> Mail then enable threads :-)

          • José Eduardo S. C. Xavier

          Welcome Sam!

  • Calintz_105

    Great post! Is there improvement in the camera performance apart from the newest UI?

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Can’t find much improvements as N950 don’t have a that nice cam as N9 :-))

      • Calintz_105

        Thanks for the reply, nevertheless, it was a great update, from both Nokia and you.

        • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

          Thanks buddy :-)

  • Youssef Ghoniemy

    will it come to n9? Btw it is awesome :)

    • Anonymous

      Of course it will… Most rumors suggest 29/02 at the latest.
      Of course it varies for everyone as-to-when exactly “you” get it.

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Yup surely it will estimated time two weeks :-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/thegadgetfreak Ajit Jalady

    does it have fm tx and rx?

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Sorry Ajit didn’t test

    • Anonymous

      There is official RX/RDS being worked on…
      Not part of the main teams work, but endorsed & supported by nokia (inc one of their devs)

      There isn’t enough resources/time for TX. The community may eventually be able to do it.
      javispedro the main community dev, has ruled-out N950, but isn’t 100% sure that N9 can’t do TX.
      He needs access to a N9 before he can be sure…

      It;s all covered in that thread at forum.meego.com, happy searching.

      Thank-you.

      I had a more detailed explanation but it was blocked.
      Search for this thread at forum*meego*com…
      “n950 FM Tx/Rx and advice on interacting w/ ALSA devices”
      Read from page 4 till the end & you’ll have “everything” answered.

      • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

        Hey Jay comment approve already :-)

      • http://www.facebook.com/thegadgetfreak Ajit Jalady

        Hi Jalyst, saw that forum and tried that app last time u suggested it( I believe you suggested it to me on nokia conversations)… The app doesnt function well. I tried several reboots etc, dev mode is on… etc…

        Also, I found something. I enable the radio nothing works, but immideately I open a music player, play and pause the music – then I hear some sound from radio for some 5 secs…

        Anyways, my question is that if the fm tx and rx is included in the new firmware… :)

        • Anonymous

          If you’d read the entire thread then you’d know why RX/TX won’t be in the new fw.
          You’d also know that there’s more recent work, with an improved daemon etc.
          Try again… the whole thing remember, from page 3…

  • Jaymzz

    Dude, thanks for the update info man :) it looks amazing!
    I was wondering if you can tell me about the video calling if it’s from a third party app like tango or skype or sth or it’s like old fasion 3G vid calling?

    • Jaymzz

      hello?

      • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

        Sorry was a bit busy and also my 3G acting up will test it tomorrow and post the results here :-)

        • Jaymzz

          thanks alot

        • Jaymzz

           dude what happened with video call? is it working or not?

  • Never

    How does the dropbox integration work?

  • Edmund

    does it have dark/light theme toggle under settings>device>display?
    i rmb older screenshots showed that..

  • Anonymous

    I keep coming back to this great post to drool over those photos!  😛

    Any other pics you think would be useful to show the fans? How about some info on the smaller bug fixes or tweaks. Is it generally faster? I have avoided the current range of mod apps available (that speed up transitions, etc) only because other people have reported problems or certain things going missing. If it was implemented by the N9 team in PR1.2 however, it would be golden.

    Do you notice any difference with overall responsiveness, similar to my clunky E7 going into ‘turbo mode’ after Anna?  :)

    • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

      Much faster , small cute sounds when closing app and opening the four shortcuts by swiping 😉

      • Anonymous

        Nice!!  There is also some mention (Twitter I think) from Nokia about a likely PR1.3 coming this year too – they said something like “a small but important update”. 

        What are your thoughts/guesses/opinions on what this might be? Actual video calling/proper use of front camera, maybe?

        Thanks again for this superb post  :)

        • http://lovemynokia.com/ Siraj Soft

          Yup I am sure its coming very soon 😉 Lotta fixes again to make it more awesome 😀
