Hi!

Recently i bought an used N9 for my wife, since it came loaded with all kind of crap loaded i did a full reflash to begin again from a clean configuration.

Now, we all know that Nokia gave us the finger and the official repositories are down, so when i try to activate Developer Mode it fails.

Without some way to escalate to root privileges, installation of Warehouse and many other nice apps fail.

Even if i have all the packages to enable Developer Mode many fail to install manually because of privileges! (so we get some kind of "hen or egg first paradox").

Device is already running on openmode kernel, so, is there any alternate way to get root-like privileges?

Possibly you can try to boot rescue kernel, mount the rootfs and extract the deb packages to the mounted rootfs

Hi Coderus!, awesome job backing everything up!

Now, how can your mirror be added to sources.list.d without root access?

Maybe try as nieldk suggested:

but replace the "extract the deb packages to the mounted rootfs" part with "add new file to /etc/sources.list.d"?

AFAIK, it was possible to create a .deb for a repo with proper aegis permissions which can be installed successfully in a stock Harmattan. Does anybody know the details? It would be great to create such a .deb for Coderus mirrored repository.

If I remember correct, Coderus already once created such a package for his trusted repository at some point.
Perhaps it is possible again ?
