Just to save a bit of time by bringing together available resources, although this is essential reading:https://wiki.maemo.org/Resurrect_your_N9

When you are ready to dig a bit deeper have a look at:https://wiki.maemo.org/Harmattan_Tips_and_Workarounds/

If device has been left untouched for too long may need to revive battery via Harmattan flasher:http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=87709

Please bear in mind in view of age of device that it may be necessary to set date of device to between 2013 -15 quite early in re-commissioning if eliciting "signature check failed" at any stage.

1) Flashing if needed, have a look here for firmware:http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=96401 and here is source of Harmattan flasher:http://markom.lt/n9/firmwares/

2) Upon N9 open Settings/Applications/Installations, and enable the option 'Allow installations from Non-Store sources'.

3) Point N9 browser to this link to disable Nokia repositories after installation: https://openrepos.net/content/ancelad/n9-repomirror

4) Enable Developer Mode in Settings > Security which should install Terminal and SDK-Connectivity-Tool

5) Install N9QTweak: https://openrepos.net/content/schturman/n950-quicktweak

6) Redirect connectivity-test.ext.nokia.com to connectivity-test-ext.maemo.org via entry in hosts file:http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...5&postcount=83

7) Disable Nokia account prompt when SIM in place:http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...0&postcount=53

8) Bypassing Nokia account requirement in Maps & Drive:http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...39&postcount=1

Until map servers were eventually closed in early June 2018 by German car makers consortium whom bought HERE mapping now prioritising Android & iOS, map data could previously be found for manual installation here:http://web.archive.org/web/201704101...02.54.223.html

For any Mac users you do need to use recursive command in Terminal to combine regions/states for manual installation of mapping data. Unfortunately this tutorial can no longer be brought up to date due to lack of sufficient privileges, but gives the idea:https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...c-cb77bcef0f06

Delving deeper remember that commonly used apps such as GPSMeeFo require you to reset date upon N9 to 2015 for installation and Coderus trusted Harmattan repository can be essential to track down missing dependencies when say installing BtInput app:http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...66&postcount=1

At this point if not before you should install coderus aegis installer hack either via http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...79&postcount=1 or through N9QTweak Tweak EE > 2 (Coderus Aegis-install) to allow installation of apps. via
HTML Code:
aegis-dpkg -i
Emojifix - after installation of harmoji_0.6.6_armel.deb need to install ibsms-utils0_0.5.17.3+0m7_armel.deb and libsms-utils0_0.5.17.3+0m7_armel-mod.deb from here via Terminal:https://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?...&postcount=132

Here is example of installing btinput where Warehouse seems to fail locating repository so dependencies have to be sourced manually:http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=98797

Aspergerguy, I love you man, you're always there on forums i'm looking up with sincere and helpful replies (lots on Microsoft.com).

Because you're the dude for meego and symbian, pretty much a Nokia guru, I got this to ask you: what's better for security conscientiousness of the aforementioned two?

while writing this, i'm not wearing a tin foil helmet, though I try to be security minded. Someone (probably some-many) wrote they use symbian because it wasn't compatible with a cloud-based interconnectivity--i'm with that.does symbian actually provide the security this person spoke of? Is meego any better/worse in this respect?

My dilemma is that I love the n9, but it doesn't love me. On the other hand, I really like my 701 and it really likes me (if it's battery were better, it'd love me). What i'm getting at is that i'm currently using the 701 because it's exceptionally okay, but it's got no pizzazz, no flair, no spunk. Contrarily, the n9 has character, vigor, and actually potential (meego is open and living), but idk about it's faults, viz. inability to flash, constant battery hiccups, map funk, security uncertainty, etc.

Can you sway me one way our another?

P.S. Congrats on post 420 #LitLightLut

Not really as old school and not dependent upon the likes of WhatsApp, Twitter & Facebook

Let's just say I still carry an 808 for it's camera and Xperia X running Sailfish which will probably have a depleted battery before end of the day.

There will be never a new Whatsapp app for N9, there is not even one for Sailfish sadly, nor a good one for Telegram (the original developer of Sailorgram left). The only trick you could use is to have an always connected Android phone with Whatsapp running on it and using Whatsapp Web on N9. But, even if I was also using an N9 and liked it a lot, it makes not much sense.

Just bought N900 and I use normally whatsapp and instagram daily. Neither works on N900. Thought of that web whatsapp setup also but could not get enough updated browser for it. Same problem with instagram (or there are some apps for debian I think but had problems on updating easy debian version). Have to start to think that should avoid them if they are so hard to use.

Maybe a developer changes the fate of n9, has somedy heard any news from nokia corporation or hmd global that they planning their own ecosystem apart from android?
Samsung still planning its ecosystem, sony planning for sailfish, what about nokia? do they planning for new ecosystem?

İt would be great if they would plan for linux based own label ecosystem maybe meego based

Dreaming is costless! But the reality is something else
