Temporarily bypassing Harmattan Aegis restrictions
Javier S. Pedro's and others' continuing efforts in coercing Aegis into a more cooperative attitude are starting to bear fruit: The main goal is to disable the aegis "seal" that prevents tampering from userspace to the Aegis enforcing settings. I mentioned userspace because nothing prevents a kernel module from tampering with the seal, and that is exactly what can be done: a module that removes the seal. Further discussion has led to the topic of an on-device signing app.
Ovi Store client beta for N950 Harmattan
Nokia Developer have announced that a beta of the Ovi Store for Harmattan is now available for those lucky enough to have N950s: An early access version of the Ovi Store Client for the N950 has now been released as an update. Your N950 device will find it automatically in about 24 hours, but the impatient amongst you can go to settings, applications and check for updates.
Most of the available applications will work on your N950 and existing publicly available firmware (1.2011.22-6). However, there are a few applications in OVI Store that are created with newer pre-production SDK that may fail to install in your device for now.
