    N950 developer-mode fails to download

    So I got a N950 from Nokia, flashed it to beta2, but I cannot enable developer mode.
    Every time I try, and confirm with OK, then accept the dependency notice, it then immediately says
    Download failed
    developer-mode
    Can't complete the download.
    Connection do the application provider was lost. Try again later.

    And Try Again does the same.
    I have tried many times, as well as rebooting, enabing installing apps from non-store locations, updating the applications (apt-get update I guess) and trying again on a different day and time...

    Without more information in the error message, and without a terminal (catch 22...), I can't find out what it's trying to download exactly, to see if it actually exists..

    Do you have a proper network connection at the time? Either WiFi or cellular?

    Have you tried re-flashing and switching to the developer mode before you restore the backup?

    Same problem here.

    What is the server which is being contacted? Maybe it's down?

    Re: N950 developer-mode fails to download

    Proper stable wifi connection, sitting 1 meter from the access point.

    By re-flashing you mean going back to beta1, then enabling developer-mode, then flashing to beta2? Won't that lose everything? I wouldn't think a backup would restore packages, what would be the point in flashing to beta2 then?

    (Sorry I'm a little confused

    Re: N950 developer-mode fails to download

    First off, you cannot go backwards with the firmware versions, so with reflashing I meant flashing the device with beta2 firmware again. No guarantees that this will solve the problem though.

    What I meant was:
    1) backup the device , if you really, really need to save something
    2) move the backup file on some other device (gain if you really really cannot lose some info)
    3) reflash with a beta 2sw
    4) try to turn on the developer mode
    5) restore the backup if you backuped something

    If you do not need to save any data just try steps 3 & 4

    I tried again a couple of hours ago and it worked for me. I didn't change anything on the device, so I suspect that it was a server problem.

    Ok, good to hear!

    Re: N950 developer-mode fails to download

    I've been trying almost every day, and again right now, still no luck.
    [Email on the device works, installing a .deb from an email worked too.]

    Where can I find the .deb for developer-mode to download directly?
    Alternatively, where can I find a .deb for a terminal? Or for openssh server?

    Re: N950 developer-mode fails to download

    I was also able to turn on the developer mode on Oct 15th so server should not be the problem...

    Re: N950 developer-mode fails to download

    Even enabling developer mode is not a problem for me.

    N950 software update(39-5) available over the air, you can try to update it.

    Re: N950 developer-mode fails to download

    Trying to get updates doesn't give anything new, it always says "your device is up-to-date" even after pressing the sync button. I never got any updates in that screen, there must be something broken with the package management stuff...

    I reflashed it again with beta2, using the flasher from beta1 again:
    sudo ./usr/bin/flasher -a img.bin --erase-mmc=quick &&
    sudo ./usr/bin/flasher -F img.bin -F emmc.bin -f

    382472416 Sep 2 10:34 img.bin
    209661306 Sep 2 10:33 emmc.bin

    Same result! No developer-mode package to be found, no updates to be installed :-(

    SUCCESS!

    There was nothing wrong with the N950 itself, it was the wifi at the office!
    I don't know why it didn't work with that wifi, but as soon as I tried with my home wifi, everything worked fine: developer-mode, getting updates, everything.

    WOO!
