PR 1.2 is finally out!

Most of us have been running the leaked 1.2 on our N900’s, but now the offical version is finally here.

  • Qt 4.6.2 is now preinstalled on the OS.
  • Changes for the video recording in the Camera Application.
  • Video calling can be accessed through contacts.
  • Can dial USSD Codes.
  • No more “More” menu in application launcher, and is rearrangeable.
  • Virtual Keyboard has been modified and now looks different.
  • File Manager is now able to share any file and/or folder.
  • Typing in Application Manager starts a search (like it is in Contacts or Media Player).
  • Status area is now reachable in portrait mode

Go fetch boy!

PR 1.2 leaked

A few days before release the global file for PR 1.2 leaked. Not very suprising as the device is beeing launched in HK this week with the PR 1.2 preinstalled.

Anyway, if you dont like to wait for the update via your app manager (and why should you wait?) go ahead and flash your device the oldschool manual way.

Full instructions here

And  download the PR 1.2 bin file here
*edit* As this file is actually leaked i decided to remove the link to it – using a simple search in google will get you there though. 🙂

If you still feel sceptic just check out this youtube video of it.

It works flawless, and full language support (as it’s global duh!) so just get on it. I was done in less then 2 minutes with it.
