Quick heads up as I just got to know from fellow guys at Symbian Developers that Nokia might be blocking access to its Firmware Repository by the end of this month.
According to the source, Nokia will block the open servers of Nokia Firmware Repository which stores all the firmwares files of its models including Symbian, Lumia, Asha, & MeeGo and will implement access control which means that the people will not be able to download Firmware files from Navifirm. Here’s what they says:
Nokia will close open connection to Nokia Firmware Repository during January 2013 and Implement access control. After this, the Nokia Online log-in 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 log-in supported.
So guys if you’re reading this then download the firmware files of your need as soon as you can.
