    Rumor says that Nokia will apply access restriction that render Navifirm useless by Jan 13 or so.

    ^ I've been using it for over 4 years... and it was probably around before that.. so ya.. about time I guess. Also, something tells me Microsoft wasn't happy with Navifirm..

    Yeah, I too would guess MS had something to do with this. It's naturally a loss to many people, but I think it's understandable from their point of view to not have software available that allows people to flash software that isnt necessarily ready yet and/or brick their devices and then go crying to Nokia about said bricked device :P

    That would suck. I love getting these early updates.

    Navifirm brought my phone back from the dead after I used the "supported" method of doing a factory reset. I re-flashed the phone and running fine, if it wasn't for that then the phone would have to been shipped out and 14 days before I had a working phone.

    scumbags carriers and Microsoft are responsible for this. So sad that Nokia is in such a weak position that they have to bend at the every whim of external forces.

    As far as I know we still able to download firmware through Nokia Care Suite. We won't be able to get the updates ahead of time without Navifirm but at least we still can recover or flash our devices if something happens to them using Nokia Care

    Are you sure of that? The new version (.51) of NCS seems to require a valid login to go online and download fw with but I hope I'm wrong about that ;)

    But on a more serious note with out plugs, I think its not a permanent shutdown, 14 Jan will probably be the start of OTA for WP8 devices and Nokia and MS would want their servers to be as free as possible so the process would go smoother.

    Well.. that was inevitable really.. the moment they signed that contract with Microsoft it was pretty much game over for the "we can do whatever we want" behavior.
