Hi,

So the N91 is the first 3rd edition phone to be supported by Nokia's phone software update tool. See here: http://www.nokia.co.uk/nokia/0,1522,,00.html?orig=/softwareupdate

i have just tried this and it says i already have the latest software, so i do the *#0000# and the phone says i have version1.00.028.34 rm43. im sure this is not correct.

Perhaps you have the latest that is available for your country/operator, or the UK site doesn't have all versions for all countries/operators.

Hi

I followed these instructions issued ny Mman at GSM arena, No problems at all. It worked great. I did it wonce and then actually did it again just to see that it is consistent (I know "get a life"). Anyhow what I like about it is that it allows you to reflashthe phone with the same sw again (which I did). This is great to know in case I somehow screw the whole thing up sith some screw 3rd party app.

Anyhow these instructions are quite good:

-------------------------------------------

just upgraded my N91 with the official SW from Nokia and its GREAT!. Now I can update my own N91 when new Sw comes or refresh my device if somehow I screw it up:

Bader the 256MB is what your PC must have in RAM. My older PC got the same message and I had to use my newer laptop.

Info:

1) Make sure you have the latest PC suite (6.81)from : http://europe.nokia.com/A4144903, or other local regional sites.

2) Install the Nokia software update application sw from http://www.nokia.co.uk/softwareupdate (note you need 256MBytes of RAM on your PC)

3) Then program your phone

a) Backup your phone memory (ROM) using PC suite (to preserve your DRM activation keys etc).

b) Copy your files (Music, Videos, Documents, Images etc) from the device HDD to your PC (recommended to use USB Mass storage).

c) Copy your applications, themes etc (original SISX, Java etc files before you installed them) from your HDD to your PC (Do not simply copy the installed directories/files over)

d) FORMAT your HDD

e) Proceed with SW update (note you need to be attached to a charger and not in offline mode. Do not answer or make call or disconnect the device during this process)

f) Reset your phone memory by typing *#7370# (code 12345) (recommend this just to be safe)

g) Restore your phone memory using PC suite

h) Copy back your HDD contents from your PC to your clean HDD

h) Re-install your applications/themes
