How to install NITDroid N11 “Vostok” on N900?

I recently installed the latest version of NITDroid N11 “Vostok” on my Nokia N900. It is Android Gingerbread 2.3.3 port released by Alex Roslyakov (@drunkdebugger | e-yes). There have been a number of versions prior to this one, but each one improves on the last and this one is no exception. I found all the information over on the Maemo.org forum, specifically the “Nitdroid easy install on Emmc” page is very useful. I recommend visiting Alex’s thread for the change log, or catch him on his website.

Set your default Browser via the Switchboard.

When I access links to the Internet via Twitter or an Email client or a shortcut on my desktop I want my Nokia N900 to know exactly which browser to open. That might sound strange, but when one has 3 different browsers (MicroB, Mozilla Firefox or Opera) then you will understand.

9 Military Aircraft Desktops for my Nokia N900.

Here are my latest desktops for my Nokia N900. I currently have 9 desktops active, although I am only using 6 of them. The rest are for eye candy. I have chosen a military aircraft theme because of the air strikes that are currently taking place over Libya. The military have such awesome flying machines and these photos compliment the the desktop of the N900. Isn’t it a shame the Android or iPhone cannot display multiple backgrounds?

A big thank you to the Maemo 5 Community SSU.

Community Seamless Software Update (CSSU) is being developed by the Maemo community, for the Maemo community. It aims to deliver fixes which can’t be delivered easily through Extras, such as core Maemo packages. It won’t, however, bundle software which can be installed through the Extras repositories. To the left are the names of the people who are responsible for keeping the Maemo Community alive. They are making my Nokia N900 even better than it was ever meant to be.

Firefox 4 Beta 4 for Maemo for Free.

Imagine having a Smartphone that only has one Internet browser! Quite a sad thought to be honest. My Nokia N900 happens to have three different browsers loaded at present. MicroB is the default browser and the one I use the most, as I find it to be the most efficient for loading large websites. Opera Mobile 10.1 beta loads quicker in certain circumstances and has an awesome bookmarking menu, while Firefox has an awesome sync option that allows me to take my PC browsing with me on my Nokia N900. Choice is a wonderful thing.
