N9/N950 camera with zoom during video recording!


If you are using PR 1.1 then you can simply enable zoom during video recording.

Just create a file /etc/camera.conf and add the following lines:

recording-zoom = true

restart camera, enjoy and send postcards to the Harmattan camera team :)

I hope someone will create an Ovi store app for that ;)

Increase the font size of the N9 conversation view.


If you care about the readability more than you care about the eye candy then that's for you ;-)

You need to enable developer mode and ssh to the N9.

# mkdir -p /usr/share/themes/blanco/meegotouch/libmessagingwidgets0/style/

# vi /usr/share/themes/blanco/meegotouch/libmessagingwidgets0/style/libmessagingwidgets0.css

Insert the following lines:

Twitter OAuth Proxy


I'm using Twitter plugin for Contacts and Conversations to twitter on my N900.

Twitter recently moved to OAuth. Problem is the Maemo package is outdated and seems to be unmaintained.

I did some research and came across a blog entry about exploring OAuth-protected APIs and some code. Nice idea but not usable for me.

ISI specifications for Nokia modems.


A serious limitation of the N900 connectivity subsystem IMHO is the inability to create multiple connections. One can only have one connection at a time. This was a problem when I started investigating MMS support for N900.

Of course one can use some undocumented API like fMMS to have more than one GPRS connection. There's only 1 problem with that approach. You can end up with IP/subnet clash.

MMS support development to be suspended until the end of February.


The gitorious repository now contains a broken mms-manager, a non functional mms-ui (because I changed the DBus interface ;-)), a preliminary mms viewer and a broken network connection manager. How pretty is that ? ;-)

I've been redesigning the DBus interfaces and I think I reached something. The UI can be easily adapted after that.

However, I'll be on vacation until the end of February. I can't work on mms until I'm back.

I'll try to commit and push the code I have on my laptop but the stuff will still be broken.
