The Nokia E90 gets its update - officially

Nokia finally released their next-gen software update for the E90 Communicator, available now for unlocked devices on Nokia Software Update. The new version is v210.34.75 and I'll be investigating it during the day if I can persuade Windows Vista to work with NSU... Comments welcome.

Read on in the full article.

you can launch NSU using the compatibility mode, like steve said.
i'm having a problem with my update, i had sort of a crash with a nokia process in the background and i quite sure the update has stopped, although NSU is still running.

i can't close it, but i will have to restart it all, hope my phone isn't that affected !!

Azerty

AZERTY devices (product code 0544354) still have to wait. Too bad, as I am going to spend one month in Africa with a very poor connection, not willing to take a chance in trying an update that is likely to be aborted in the middle of a critical phase.

If you get the process error under Vista, you have to kill NSU from Windows Task Manager and then restart it - see Antony Pranata's page on this.

I'm wondering if NSU's recent downtime has enabled them to fix things though - we'll see!

Good to wait

After having read Steve's article completely, I think it's not so bad to wait another four weeks. While in Bujumbura, I will just monitor users' experiences and comments. I guess we will finally get some kind of 08.xx firmware release.

What is unstable Web?

I have learned to my surprise, that N82 was unstable in webbrowser, just after installation of couple of programs and my "favourite" theme. It would often close for apparently no reason, more often when in "menu" mode. despite tons of free RAM, etc. So, I started to roll back installed programs until I found a culprit. This was something I would expect the last - a theme! It is hard to believe, I thought that a theme is just a collection of pics and colour definitions, but it seems that SVG theme from Pizero, can cause such a strange instability in N82 browaser (in my case that was SVG theme "New Gold default icons" by PiZero). I doubt it has anything to do with theme itself, more likely some bug in SVG theme rendering engine in firmware.

Steve,

Is the new firmware more unstable than 200.34.72? I currently have that and I'm going to hard reset my phone anyway... Any particular reason not to upgrade from 200.34.72 to 210.34.75?

=)juha

E90 model 0555562

Does anyone else have an E90 model 0555562? Whilst this was purchased SIM free from Play.com and is recognised by the Nokia Update service as an E90, I cannot find any reference to this product code, nor any indication when I can upgrade from v7.40.1.2. The phone reports as an RA-6 Nokia E90 (44). All comments welcome.

Managed to update to the latest FW; but can't remember the product I used! NSS has stopped working. I suspect I used code 0544294 (UK. Mocha). E90 seems very snappy now and restore seemed to work from x.x.73.

Hi all,

Well i was running V200.34.73 using an APAC code and although on checking 0533332 which is the UK Mocha Generic code it said no update was available. I changed my code back anyway and running NUS in Windows XP SP2 comparability it did in fact upgrade with no problems.

I also have to agree with the other poster as using a PiZero theme i was having slight screen flashes and the getting kicked out of the Web browser problem. Since going back to a Nokia theme both of these problems stopped.

Maybe those having problems should chose one of the installed default themes and see if it also makes a difference or not.

It's only been a few hours now since i flashed and reinstalled all my apps and synched with Outlook but it seems even quicker than with the previous Firmware and so far no problems at all, it all seems good to me lets hope it stays that way.

E90 Hard Reset

Hi Guys,

Can anybody tell me how to hard reset my E90? One of the previous updates corrupted it and now the keyboard is disconfigured and not recognizing carachters on it even after upgrading to v210.34.75. Hence would like to hard reset and do a fresh install. It's a Spanish version keyboard.

Thanks
