Symbian-Freak are reporting that there's a new E90 firmware released 7.38.02 via the Nokia Software Update utility (I can't confirm that myself as NSU doesn't like my work machine and refuses to run properly without a reboot) which include A-GPS support (aparently A-GPS only works over GPRS, WLAN does not appear to be supported yet) and a whole heap of other changes (no sign of the return of connection groups though - boo hiss)

Usual rules about applying at your own risk and making sure everything is properly backed up apply I guess...

I shall try with my Scandinavian sourced E90 when I get home...

No joy for me either, boo. (Product code is one of the EMEA ones; EDIT: 0533332)

I remember when Nokia did the firmware for the n95 with A-GPS there was definitely a staggered release for product codes.

If Friday goes as planned (id est, no server failures) I might give a couple of other product codes a spin. "0544297: EMEA 4 - Mocca" looks tempting, doesn't seem to have a country tied to it.

EDIT: I think the firmware is currently APAC only at the moment, based on the following:

1. One of the files for the previous version of the E90's firmware is called RA6p_072403.C01.
2. Should one choose to examine the filename, one will find that 07.24.0.3 is markedly similar to the firmware. Based on this happy coincidence, I googled RA6p_073803.C01 and found the following page:

3. Scrolling down the page, you will find links to RAR files for the firmware update, and from this one could manually flash the phone (just for giggles).

If anyone is this keen for A-GPS, I would imagine a) they could experiment with APAC codes, or b) probably brick their phone with the above (so, in essence, I would say do not do it at all).

But I could be wildly wrong!

Has anyone got the new firmware yet, with a product code that includes English?

Updated to v7.40.1.2 yesterday. I had to change the product code from 0544406 to 0533332 with NSS - all working ok, but the punctuation keys on the keyboard are messed up!!!! I can cope until there's a new release for 0544406 phones!

I'm with Scott, just plugged my E90 in to the Software Updater only to be told that the 7.24.0.3 it's running is the latest available.
