Another way to get the RepoMirror on the N9 is to copy the download link on OpenRepos (by right-clicking on the .deb file then copy the link), then use a link shortener  service, and type the shortened link by hand on the device's browser. It should be downloaded and you can install the file.
Some users have reported problems with the latest version (0.7.2). Using an older version (0.6.0) seems to help in this instance.

Warehouse was a package browser for OpenRepos. It allowed you to browse, select and install packages directly from your device, in a similar way to the Nokia Store app worked. As Warehouse uses an expired certificate - DST Root CA X3 (since the 29th of September 2021), it does not work anymore today. The workaround is to download the .DEB files of wanted applications from https://openrepos.net/ and to transfer them through Bluetooth. Once transferred, run the installation on your n9 from the "Transfers" notification view (by a simple touch on the filename in this pane).

=== Certificates ===
 +
With time, more and more of Root Certificates are obsolete.
 +
 
 +
For improving this, you may install aegis-certman-common-ca_1.0.8+0m9_all.deb created by Halftux. He created this with the pem files from latest maemo5 certs (cssu-devel).

See here for instructions : https://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=1562329&postcount=94

Two files managers are directly installable after being transfered through Bluetooth:

* FileCase (https://openrepos.net/content/cepiperez/filecase)

Two other files managers are NOT installable after being transfered through Bluetooth:

See the "Apps" section (below) for it explains how to install them (with Terminal and command line "sudo aegis-dpkg ..." ).

Most of them are no longer installable because certificates are TOO old (the install process fails because of that). However here is a solution :
-
* Pre-requisites: developer mode must be activated!
+
* Pre-requisites : developer mode must be activated, N9 QTweak must be installed as well as Aegis. You may check that Aegis is installed by running "sudo aegis-dpkg -h" (from Terminal). For installing Aegis, just launch N9 QTWeak, option EE and option 2 (INSTALL Coderus Aegis-Install). Answer the questions and wait...
-
* Install Aegis-install hack from CODeRUS: https://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=90750 . N9-QTweakall can install it (EE option).
+
* Download the .deb file from openrepos on your PC then copy them into a folder on the device, say the /Downloads folder
-
* Download the needed .deb file from openrepos.net and transfer it to your N9, say the /Downloads folder
+
* Then run the Terminal and run aegis-dpkg
-
* Then run Terminal and run :
+
sudo aegis-dpkg -i /home/user/MyDocs/Downloads/myapp.deb
-
''sudo aegis-dpkg -i /home/user/MyDocs/Downloads/myapp.deb''

(default password of root is rootme)

Edit 1 : I recommand you to use openssh. It enable you to open an SSH connection from your PC to your N9. From this SSH connection, you can run easily any command you need. User is user. Password is rootme. User's password is modifiable through n9qtweak.

'''Not usable but MeeCast is a good replacement'''

Meecast is well integrated in Harmattan (widget in lock screen, event view and standby screen). It's available on https://openrepos.net. It still works in 2022 with the Openweathermap.org source.

MeeCast is a good replacement. The MeeCast widget can replace AccuWeather on the events screen, as well as the lock and standby screens. (Install the widget via MeeCast's Settings/Appearance menu.)

Synchronization is not trivial in 2022. As main providers have stopped support, we must search for more confidential providers that still support Harmattan or EAS :
+
Almost everyone abandon CalDAV. Fortunately Mail for Exchange option works very well with simple basic outlook accounts (!). The trick is to define the domain at  office365.com , server at eas.outlook.com and port at 443 (see mail section). It provides Calendar and Contacts synchronization.
-
* EAS (Exchange Active Sync) protocol :
+
I didn't find other tricks for other cal providers.
-
 
+
-
# Microsoft Outlook Exchange Active Sync stopped to work by March 2022. The office365.com domain or eas.outlook.com server seem to be OFF. KO.
+
-
# A long time ago, Google supported EAS but stopped to do so by 2013. KO.
+
-
# But memotoo.com still provides today a quite good alternative : it provides a calendar/tasks/contacts solution accessible through an EAS connection. Create an account, connect and search for "harmattan" in the Sync section for instructions. Really easy. Domain is memotoo.com, server is exchange.memotoo.com.
+
-
 
+
-
* CalDAV protocol :
+
-
 
+
-
# Google abandons CalDAV by 2013. KO.
+
-
# NextCloud CalDAV (Zaclys, Framagenda...) is not compliant with N9 CalDav agent (logins fail). KO.
+
-
# Orange CalDAV (Sabre server) is half compliant with the N9 CalDAV agent (only upload works, not download). KO.
+
-
# Mailo.com provides mailing, calendar, contacts and files management (DAV) capabilities. It provides many integration possibilities through many protocols including CalDAV and this one is compliant with the N9 CalDAV agent. The CalDAV settings for your beloved n9 is : https://caldav.mailo.com/calendar/your-mail-account-in-mailo@mailo.com/1
+
-
# Fruux CalDAV (Sabre server) is 100% compliant with the N9 CalDAV agent. Fruux supports N9 and Sailfish through dedicated bridges. Step by step procedure :
+
-
## Register a Fruux account. Wait the validation mail...etc
+
-
## Connect to Fruux and go here : https://fruux.com/sync/new/
+
-
## Scroll down and click on "Nokia N9 Calendar"
+
-
## Give a nickname of your N9, click Next.
+
-
## Now, copy given IDs (user, pwd, url) in a safe place and send them to your N9. Save
+
-
## Back to your N9, add a new CalDAv Account and use the IDs.
+
-
## Everything works so far (sync in both ways).
+
-
PS : For Android devices, it's easier : Fruux provides a CalDAv Synchronization Agent (see here https://apkpure.com/fr/fruux/com.fruux.android ). Run it and log in with your regular Fruux Account (sandwich menu : options). By this way, we can share Cal Events between the N9 and Android devices.

Opera Mini 8 works in a client/server way with an Opera "proxy" server in the middle (between you and the site, this proxy server seems to be located in Nederland). The web Pages are not running on your device but on the Opera proxy server and the HTML output is then send to your n9. I notice that sites with JavaScript are rarely usable.

Without Opera Mini, you must find some pure HTML 2.0 sites. Here are some I know : http://lite.cnn.io/en , http://www.msn.com , http://68k.news (Google news)...

Opera Mini 8 works in a client/server way with an Opera "proxy" server in the middle (between you and the site, this proxy server seems to be located in Nederland). The web Pages are not running on your device but on the Opera proxy server and the HTML output is then send to your N9. I notice that sites with JavaScript are rarely usable.

You can use http://iteroni.com on default N9's browser. It works really well, direct watching works.

JTube Lite is a solution provided by Wunder Wungiel on Telegram by first of April 2022. It's a Java MIDlet that requires phoneME (Java VM).  Go to the "Maemo/MeeGo World" Telegram group (https://t.me/maemomeego) for explanation and resources. You can search and download the YouTube videos (.3gp format). The Video Player of Harmattan can play them.
