I also had issues with the update of my N86. This OVI Store client shipped with the firware V20 was 1.05(272). I went on the ovi store with the web browser and downloaded it again, this time it was 1.05(315) and it works better. Maybe there is the same problem with the N97.

Maps version

Just a FYI myself and many others did not get the latest version of Ovi Maps with our firmware update. We are all still running v. 3.01 which is what was already installed on the device. You might want to check to make sure that the Maps update is actually included in the firmware release.

Regards,

Unhappy Ovi Store Issues

I have issues with th Ovi store since the update. I am unabel to scroll down on any screen as the moment I touch the screen the item under my finger is selected and I cannot scroll down.

Anyone else having this issue?

Ovi Map is _not_ 3.1

After upgrading to 20.0.019.C01.01 (RM-505, unlocked swedish phone) maps is not 3.1 as you state, it is v3.01 09wk38b02

Before the v20 upgrade i had the orignial from previous version maps, so it was an upgrade but only to 3.01

Not that it matters on this phone, since it hardly ever can get a GPS fix anyhow...

Also the N-Gage client was not included in my v20 update. Needed a seperate download. And software updated recommended a Ovi Contacts update. I guess those are not the reason for free space on drive C.

After installing all upgrades and the full version of Quickoffice I still have about 38 MB free space on C.

I wonder whether Nokia Messaging will move it's e-mail storage to E: any time soon.

"a mountain of smaller fixes" - LOL - I guess Steve's definition of "mountain" is different from everybody else's. It's this kind of poor fanboyish reporting that is disappointing.

I thought I'd dust off my poor N97 to see if the new firmware could breath some new life into it. Turns out nothing will spare the N97 from the oblivion.

I don't know where to start with my litany of blunders that is the N97. For now I only have one question: where the devil is VOIP ?

Nasty bug in the music player - the "Back" button shown when a track is in play now takes you back to the home screen, meaning there is no way to go back to the track list and select another track quickly.

One step forward, two steps back.

1 new widget, VOIP missing in action and bugs with Ovi and Music player. Did it take them 4 months to add kinetic scrolling?

I define a 'mountain' in this context as over 10 and less than 50. OK now? I'm sure the full, grittier changelog will appear leaked online in due course, and you can see for yourself.

BTW, for Ovi Maps and N-Gage, I was working from the RDA N97 v20 - it's possible that these aren't in the actual *distributed* firmware image - apologies if that's the case - I'm only just now (Tuesday evening) been able to get to my PC and start the update procedure on a local device.

Letters on the dial pad

At long last something that greatly missing in the US. Letters on the dial pad that allow us to dial numbers containing letters.

That's fair enough. My N97 feels somewhat snappier. The kinetic scrolling is nice I just don't see anything else significant. Ram is still low.

Steve, could you please update the original post:

  • Firmware is 20.0.019 not 20.2.019
  • VoIP is missing
  • N-Gage client is not included
  • Ovi Store client, Ovi Contacts etc. need updates
  • Accuweather widget seems to be missing, I had to download it from Ovi Store
  • Ovi Maps is not the latest 3.03 from beta labs



BTW I could not start Ovi Maps after upgrade. I decided to try 3.03 and it's working and very nice!

Update: It seems that VoIP is available in v20. More information in later comments.
