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!
