I think they are fixing V20 still and will re-release soon.

Install all apps on an SD card would be my advise, except well trusted and known apps otherwise you'll be stuck with the white screen of death, you'll still get it with apps on the SD card, but you an easily take it out and restart again easily.

Just my 2p's worth.

Did you change the product code to get V20 in the first place?

Beer Did you use the NSU

from your PC or just asked the phone for an update?

Try using the PC version ...

PC Suite normally offers the option to re-install current FW. However, if you have canged the product code since the V20 FW upgrade the new product code may not be approved for V20 FW.
Did you change product code recently?

However, you don't say WHY you want to re-install the same FW version?

Unless the original V20 FW upgrade failed or only partially worked (usually resulting in a bricked handset) then there's no benefit whatsoever in re-installing the same FW...
... unless you are de-branding with a product code change (despite NCC engineers re-applying FW every time they repair a handset!).

Instead, you could simply perform a hard-reset using the boot-up vulcan-death-grip, which resets the phone to factory settings and wipes internal memory...

"turn your phone off and simultaneously press these four buttons...
Caps shift
Space bar
Delete button
On button
Keep the first three buttons pressed until the Nokia startup music plays"

I debranded my phone prior to v12 back in early Sept. and am also not getting the option to re-install v20 on NSU (not that I want to).

This has only come about in the last couple of weeks on NSU as the option was there prior to that.

A similar thing occurred on v12 just prior to the launc of v20. However that could just be a coincidence.

Just checked and I am being offered the option to reinstall v20, using Ovi Suite 2.0.1.35.
