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.
