Problems updating my Nokia N900 to Maemo 5 10.2010.19-1.203.1


I have recently received a notification that a new update is available for my n900.

Here is my story of woe.

Upon trying to install it informs me that I need to create a backup. Backup created via phone... Still won't allow me to install..

Check under Details Summary.. It informs me that it needs to be done via the PC Suite Application on my PC...

Backup from PC suite application..

Attempt to update again this time from PC suite application... Informed that this phone isn't suppported...

Check for update to PC Suite... None available...

Hoping that it was only the backup that needed to be run from PC Suite I attempt to upgrade from phone again... Cycle starts all over..

Can anybody please help me and save my sanity? Has anybody else had this problem and managed to work it out?

Tux Racer

Ok... I have found the problem..

When you attempt to update the OS you need to make sure that you don't have Tux Racer installed.

Problem solved.
