Yes, that's what this thread is about, an open, unlocked, jailbroken, whatever-you-want-to-call-it kernel for Harmattan. My wife has the N9, so I haven't installed it on her device, but it should work for both the N9 and the N950.

@qole

I haven't suffer that anymore
so, this is what I have done to my n9:

1. flash in the firmware.
flasher -F firmware.bin -f

2. without boot, instantly flash in the open mode kernel afterwards.
flasher -F firmware.bin -k OMkernal --flash-only=kernel -f -R

this way works well for me so long.

@qole: Thats awesome.

I've got some questions:
1. Does Nokia maps and drive work? Will Openvpn work?
2. Is aegis really gone or will it still show warnings instead of full enforcement? I'd like the warnings on my n950 so that I can test on my n950 and be assured that it works on everyone else's n9.

just out of interest Qole, what application did you develop/are developing that scored you an n950?

It is so nice to have access to the full variety of Debian apps, like a text editor and a VNC viewer...

I have had problems with the following apps, both of which were solved by replacing the aegisfs dirs with a basic dir.
- facebook app
- location / gps / maps app
I have to manually replace the dirs after each reboot, quite annoying.

I have had recent problems with Skype chat not displaying messages in the chat window. Still investigating that.

The other apps seem to be Ok with aegis dirs now that I've stopped messing around with them...

I want to figure out how to extract all of the files out of aegisfs directories before flashing to open mode, then after flashing, disabling the aegisfs mounts and copying in the files unencrypted.

PS good choice of forum for this thread!

As I wrote above, I had problems getting the GPS / location to activate, but I got it to work (see the FMC thread for details). Kiiwii insists that a fresh flash of the whole firmware, followed by a flash of the open kernel, solves all of my problems. I haven't tried it.

I haven't tried it, but unless it relies on Aegis for something, it should work.

I'm using the patched kernel, so it now behaves like the N900; it just does what you would expect a Linux device would do. I never see warnings about anything.

Just lots of "what's your password again?" type screens.

Yes, if you flash the open mode kernel without booting to secure mode, you should get everything in working condition, since aegis databases are created on 1st boot, and that way they are created with open mode keys.

Would be awesome if you could provide the flash instructions and a link to the open-mode kernel in the first post of this thread. Currently one has to read at least the first page to even understand what this thread is about and find the flash instructions on the second page... Still haven't found the kernel download

EDIT: BIG BIG thanks to everyone involved in making this happen!

Just a thought. When do you think Mer/Nemo will mature to the point of rendering Harmattan with open kernel not needed anymore? Or there is no way to estimate that yet?
