N950 Showing arjw.v6


Not sure if I was trying to do this or not. But, at the end of the week where Symbian (the operating system that one of my Nokia phones uses) was officially declared to be dead (no longer new products made, support winding way down), I decided to pick up the other Nokia mobile with the just-as-dead operating system, and just see what I could do with things.
