lets hope ROGERS doesnt delete my reply this time...
putting non rogers firmware DOES NOT VOID YOUR WARRANTY... the warranty is through NOKIA and not Rogers....
call ROGERS YOURSELF and ask!! they will not and DO NOT service or warranty your phone!! they just ship it for you to NOKIA!!
NOKIA WILL WARRANTY YOUR PHONE FOR ONE YEAR INCLUSIVE!! as long as the firmware is NOKIA approved, they dont care what country code it is!!
I agree with you for the hardware/software part, but I am sure that that Nokia does have an agreement with ROGERS to provide the right services.
Nokia will not jeopardize is reputation for a low hand provider like Rogers. Worldwide, Rogers is very small, so I think Nokia could pull the plug anytime.
That said, Nokia need to be in North America, even if it is a small market compare to Europe or Asia.
I agree also that Rogers doesn't have the professionalism that we as consumer expect Rogers should start thinking that if you decide to sell Smartphone, they also need to be smart and respectful for their money providers and provide the service we are expecting for our money.
Hey Maximus, yes that is the main refernce I used. I didn't try the hack though. I just put on the firmware. Here is a quick summary I made of the steps I did so I remember for next time:
I used these 2 websites for instructions and downloads of Navifirm and Phoenix. Good luck!
i'm back...and here is something to burst your bubble and possibly make you blood boil....after waiting for so long for Rogers to approve the long awaited PR 1.1 update...i checked on the new excel sheet provided by skyee of Nokia...and according to the list, product code 059d391 is back to "I N C R E A T I O N" status..... here is the list for your viewing pleasure... N8 PR1 1 & PR1.2 status (070411).xls 113 KB ... (and yes...i am being sarcastic..)
"Thanks to everyone for being patient. As soon as we get more information regarding a release we will keep you updated. Be sure to regularly check our redboard.rogers.com for new device and software update information."
please give us some news about the update.
bad news or good news..
redboard.rogers.com is no help.
We have spoken with Nokia Canada and the OS upgrade is not yet available for testing by Rogers. As you know, the availability of OS updates is up to the device manufacturer.
As soon as the manufacturer makes the OS available to us for testing, it will be made released to customers as appropriate.
Thank you for your patience, we will keep you posted.

Thanks you Erin.
It would appears the spreadsheet has been changed as well on Nokia Forum. It has been changed from "pending carrier's approval" to "in creation". On the bright side, 13.012/PR1.1may actually be in creation this time on the Nokia Canada end.
Hopefully, things will change for the better.
I just spent a pr1.2 via the Phoenix if you are interested please contact me via PM.
Let's face it...Rogers is never going to release this update, or any other ones that come out for this phone.
I know dude Rogers .....Thats why after 1 month with no update i flash my N8 via Phoenix and now i have the Pr1.2 and i feel the difference it fix lot of bugs...for example the Zoom camera it`s laggi in the pr 1.0 but in pr 1.2 it`s smooth . If you Guys need Any Help just contact me this is my email : [email removed].
And it doesn`t affect you warranty because doen`t change the product code still the same but with the pr 1.2..
