Bypassing Nokia Drive's requirement for a Nokia account
 
After wiping one of my N9s, I found out the hard way that nokia accounts are dead. As a matter of fact, not only you cannot register a new one, but existing ones cannot be validated.

One of the side effects of this is that one cannot use anymore the Nokia Drive application. Once it is starts, Nokia Drive will check for the existence of a Nokia account: if one is found, it will be validated; if not, the user is going to be asked to create one. In both cases there will be no server response, meaning that Drive will keep asking until the user shuts down the application.

Luckily for Nokia Drive users, there is a very simple fix. Just navigate to /home/user/.config/Nokia and write this content to a file named Drive.ini file (should be already there if you have started the app before):

Code:

[GeneralSettings]
unitSystem=metric
ssoDone=true
appVersion=2.0.8+0m8
serviceAgreedOn="Fri, 1 May 2015 17:15:38 GMT"
allowConnections=true
traffic=false
routeOptions=63
gpsPowersaving=false

[MapSettings]
Perspective=2D
MapScheme=carnav.day.grey

[GuidanceSettings]
voiceSkin=5000
speedWarner=true
speedWarnerAudio=true
lowSpeedOffset=0
highSpeedOffset=0

As you can imagine, the key to all this is in the line :)

Code:

ssoDone=true
Hope this helps all the N9 users out there! Happy driving!

Hy,

i wiped my first N9 to see how it going on. Tried to modified Drive.ini but even devel-su Harmattan didnt allow me to write the new ini (:wq!)
Harmattan tell me that i didnt have enough permission.

Where is my fault?

do not use devel-su, it's user fine, not root.

Great! Thank you!
Now the problem is Maps that still doesn't work. I tried to add ssoDone=true to Maps.conf but no luck :(

What about '
isSsoEnabled=false
' in section General? (set this way on my working device)

@ThePolo:

Peter's comment above is correct - you can set sso to be disabled by setting the configuration value 'isSsoEnabled' to 'false' in /home/user/.config/Nokia/Maps.conf.

Maps.conf allows also to control some of the service side of maps and could be used to have maps fetch some of the its data from HERE maps. For example, I haven't tested or double checked this one too much, but one could could replace:

Code:

[places]
...
placesURI=http://places.maps.ovi.com/rest/v1/places/
...

with the HERE equivalent:

Code:

...
placesURI=http://places.here.com/rest/v1/places/
...

and things would still work fine, seemingly using data from HERE maps when it comes to places.

Just repaired ex-Tomislav N9-64GB and after grabbing Drive.ini from another N9 notice noticed it had traffic=true and remembered to apply QuickTweak option G to re-enable traffic information which still working in UK, but for how long who knows?

OK, now why mine has no problem and even though Nokia Account cannot be verified, the app works just fine??!!

Because you've run it before? This applies only on the first run after a fresh wipe, if I understand it correctly. Cannot verify without a working device.
