The Fins are ahead of the UK, but it's not showing on update manager yet - and mines unlocked/unbranded...

Anyone else got it yet?

Ha! You think that's obsessive - you should see how often I am trying the Nokia Software Updater! ;)

And you won't get it either, the firmware has not been approved as yet for UK Sim Free handsets

You will have to wait until nokia get round to it, just like an operator firmware

Eh? The SIM free firmware usually gets updated a long time before the operator firmware.

Otherwise, everyone who has a N97 won't be getting the firmware update. So very little point about mentioning 1st July, unless Nokia are now actively attempting to get negative publicity!

Yes it will be before an operator firmware, but not today.

These are all product codes for the new firmware, UK IS NOT THERE, it has to be approved/customised for UK handsets, and it is isnt.

oooh - just checked the phone's software updater and can see that I can get 11.0.021.

Bought my M97 sim free here in Saudi a couple of weeks ago.

<sigh> Guess I have to do it with a Windows PC? Have a Windows laptop here in Riyadh and a Mac laptop at home in Jeddah, looks like I'll be travelling home with a laptop this weekend then! ( Weekends are Thursday and Friday out here )

This is very irritating. It is no wonder people buy Apple products! :frown:

Going away on businesss for a month later today and I was hoping to get the firmware updated before I head off.

Can anyone who has done an OTA update confirm if the user data preservation works OK? Looks like that will be my only option as I don't fancy voiding my warranty on the N97 (that ribbon cable could get loose!).

I'm fairly sure that currently once you hit 3g you're stuck there... even if 3g signal drops...

Currently sat at the back of my house (crap tmobile signal) and it's not using wifi!

Let me see if I understand this correctly:

The first update has to be via cable to your PC?

Even if you had connected to your PC previously and run Software Updater and it told you that you were up-to-date?

The list of the firmware changelog doesn't list OTA updates as an update.

That sorted that out.... However, there's always an "however", I get as far as "Read values" and nothing happens.

Installing JAF version 1.98.62 right now...

It's asking whether I want to install Nokia Cable Driver v 7.0.2.0. (since I have the latest version 7.1.16.0 installed).

Aye or Nay? Will this affect anything?

fred no functionality will be lost, and it keeps your settings after update but make a backup just incase

just changed product code to 0570817. Used to do this on my n95 also done it on my gf's 5800. Never had any problems before. Looking forward to new firmware!


Unable to download the firmware. Anyone else having problems?

select no if you have nsu instaled already

Thanks, Biggzy. All done.


Word of caution for others:

When installing JAF, don't change the installation directory. Leave the default Program Files/ODEON/JAF. Otherwise, the Emulator won't be able to find/load JAF and you'll need to uninstall/reinstall JAF again.

This game lets you control a Ferrari and drive it really fast. The cars in this game are all Ferrari's, and the different racing modes and your girlfriend makes things very interesting, while the online leaderboard gives the game a competitive edge

Just had a scary half hour but now I got the new model code and new firmware updated over the NSU, thanks for the tips on this forum guys.

Accu Weather still takes forever to load if at all!!!

Bluetooth connection to PC Suite seems to work now.

Anyone know about ViOP, internet calls etc? Not available?

Well I still have the keylock problem. Changed my product code and updated the phone no problem but the keylock problem is still there. I really don't want to have to format and set the phone up again as it took about 6 hours to do the first time. Guess I have no choice.

I changed my product code and then found that I could not download it through OVI which told me that my V10 software was uptodate.

I then used the PcC Suite and lo and behold it said that there was an update. However after updating the phone is just flashing an intermittent white screen at me. Does anyone know of a way to reboot the phone. Something similar to the 3 key Vulcan Death Grip of the N95 would be good. :con?

you could try holding keys down to see if you can try and fine a 3 kay format, no 1 has found it yet tho but it must exist, if there is a hard foemat via 3 key and boot then im sure all these bricked fones will be ok.

Anyone know if there are any other obvious bugs from the v10 fw that I can check for before I do a complete reformat? Updated to v11 fw but still have the same keylock bug but what about something else that's been fixed in v11?

The keylock is much better now. v10 you had to toggle it 3 times. v11, it happens occasionaly (not enough to annoy) and when it does you only toggle twice.

Other fixes aren't obvious. The Images and Videos library updating correctly may be. Besides that its just performance. Clicks go through first try, navigating through menus and finger scrolling on websites are quicker. Video playback is slightly better. Overall good upgrade, a must really. But this is what N97 should've been at launch.

Mine took 2 attempts with v10 and it's exactly the same now with v11, that's why I figured I might have to just reformat and start fresh. Phew, really didn't want to start again. And it does seem quicker so overall I'm happy. ;)

What a palaver. Having paid full retail for SIM free I didn't expect to have to change the product code to get new firmware on the release date!

I'm not business minded, but having seen all the countries that were eligible for the update with their native codes today I'm yet again wondering what Nokia is thinking by leaving the UK out.

Guys! Seriously! We're talking about a couple of days. You're risking bricking your brand new five hundred quid phone cos you cant wait a couple of days for the UK release.

I have myself changed product codes on phones before but only to get rid of stupid operator branding. Just to get a firmware update a few days early seems kinda silly to me. I'll just hang on :-)

On a separate note, just why does the UK version take longer? OK I understand that it needs approval for the local version but if all the other versions got approved for the launch why not the UK one? Anyway, still wouldnt risk bricking my phone!

I want more languages. This is my reason. Any info about widgets coming for different regions? Will old one stay after flashing?

i'm surprised no one has asked this yet, but does this firmware increase the amount of free ram on startup?

Also does updating the firmwaree wipe the 32gb mass storage or just the phone memory?

It doesn't wipe anything. All your files will stay. some one said he had 53 mb after flashing. Then i bought mine, it has 27 mb or something like that.

Ok I installed fw for Russian region and DOT moved to letter X :). Some symbessibols gone, but acessible through Sym buttonn. Most Alt buttons do different thing.

all user data & settings intact. It only updates the system / included application files. :)
