Nokia strikes again: FCA00000 hired


FCA00000 was a great man. He played a huge role in the Symbian community being able to now do anything they wish with their phones, something that Nokia aren't too happy about. So, what better way to stop the hack progressing and to prevent it ever happening again than to hire the man behind it.

This morning I tried to contact FCA00000 via MSN to see if there were any new developments with the hack. This is when he told me that he couldn't help me with that due to him now being under NDA. Naturally, I was shocked. He then continued to inform me of the details of his position at Nokia.

His role is as the Principal Software test Engineer, and he'll be moving to the UK for his new job. He also tells me that the agreed wages are amazing.

UPDATE: FCA00000 has sent me a video in which he says his final goodbyes and bids good luck to you all:

It was good to know you, FCA00000.

R.I.P FCA00000, another man lost to the ongoing war in Finland.

    Yes, and I am quite happy about it.
    I just couldn't reject the offer; it will allow me to work on something I really enjoy.
    See you ... from the other side.

    Hopefully you can help to get Nokia to ease the limits on our phones.
