Nokia Will Close Open Connection to Nokia Firmware Repository (Navifirm)




Bad news for Nokia users, starting next month a Nokia Online login will be required to access Navifirm.

In an official bulletin leaked to Smartmobil, Nokia says:

IMPORTANT NEWS BULLETIN 12-21-2012 FROM NOKIA:
Nokia will close open connection to Nokia Firmware Repository during January 2013 and Implement access control.
After this, the Nokia Online login is required to access Nokia Firmware Repository.
During transition phase (December 2012 - January 2013), both open and restricted channels are open, but the open channel will be closed at the end of January 2013
After this, application updates and device software downloading are possible only by using the latest software releases with service NOL login supported.
At the moment there are no details what kind of account will be needed to access Nokia's Firmware Repository, so it's better to grab the latest firmware images for your device by the end of the month.
