How To Update The Firmware
There are many ways of updating the firmware on your Nokia N900. To install the software on your device using FOTA (Firmware Over-The-Air), simply launch the Application Manager and click update. There you will see a Maemo5 update. If the firmware update is not immediately available via FOTA, you can also update your firmware using NSU (Nokia Software Updater) on your PC. Once you plug your device in, select the PC Suite option, ensuring that the phone has a Sim Card inserted and the profile is set to General. Some devices also support UDP (User Data Preservation), which will preserve all your data and content on your device during these updates. However we still recommend you do a full backup in order to guarantee the safety of your data. The N900 has previously wiped off some data when updating via NSU so be careful and backup your content.
