30.x firmware for N97 in the pipeline?

Hi

Today I checked for the latest available firmware for my Nokia N97 at the Nokia website and according to the site, the latest firmware version for the product code 0576355 is 30.0.016.

When I check for updates OTA, via Ovi Suite, or via NSU, 21.x still is the most recent one.

Is there a 30.x coming soon? Any news on that?

Ciao

You could well be right.

I just checked for my product code on-line with Nokia's update checker and it's showing v30.0.016.

Not available via PC/Ovi Suite or Nokia Software Updater yet.

Interesting, maybe Nokia is giving information on the coming update.
I have 21.0.102. There is no update OTA. However when I check with my product code, 0586199, the latest update is 21.0105. I checked with NSU there is no update, still shows 21.0102.

Looks promising, I'll keep my fingers crossed that just as they skipped v12 to release v20 I'll actually get a 3 branded version of v30, after having waited in vain for a v21 update.

Well. v21 to v30 is a very big firmware jump.

Hopefully it will address a lot of the issues we've all been experiencing.

This is similar to the firmware jumps with the N95 and N95 8GB where, about, 60% of problems were fixed in the v12 to v20/21 firmware upgrade and then the other niggling problems were addressed in the v21 to v30 update about a year later with the icing-on-the-cake being the v35 firmware released in January this year (some 2.5 years after release).

I live in hope!

One thing I will definitely be doing on a firmware jump of this magnitude is a completely fresh install and then sit back and wait for all those who say that they did it OTA or via NSU with no problems and then start complaining about it slowing down their handsets, crashing, freezing, losing files, etc.

How very odd...!

It would seem that Nokia have changed their minds as the on-line nokia Firmware checker is now showing v21.0.102 as being available for my product code of v21.0.045.

Just checked OTA, NSU and it's not offering it to me.

I think they twigged that some of us had seen the v30 firmware update and have pulled it from the on-line checker here:-

Hey, ho! "We also serve, who merely sit and wait"

I'm confused ....

I changed my product code to 0570817 when I first got the phone.

Current firmware is reporting v21.0.045 - custom version 21.0.045.C01.01


On the nokia website:

http://europe.nokia.com/support/down.../can-i-update#

Latest available version is listed as "22.0.108" - website says "If this version is greater than your current software version, update now to get the latest features, applications and improvements."

Go to NSU, no update available.

Can anyone explain that?

there's no updates listed on navifirm for the n97 or the mini. I reckon these reports might not be accurate...

*sigh*

Same for me. Version 30.x disappeared. However, the website now tells me that there is version 22.0.108 available for product code 0576355 and I should upgrade via NSU. Still, there is no software update available for my phone.

Nokia is really having fun these days... :-)

My reports are certainly accurate me old zider drinker.

I even included the screenshots on both of mine to prove it.

Or do you mean that it's Nokia playing silly beggars?

Nokia are 'aving a *@!%$@"$% laugh!

Now the on-line checker is showing v22.0.108 as being available for my product code.

I reckon there's some Nokia twit sitting there, bored out of his tiny mind, wondering how to wind us all up.

Am awaiting v90.0.021 at any moment.

We're not the only forum talking about it ...

Nokia discussions is having a moan too ...

I think that this is the link it all started on ...

http://lovemynokia.com/nokia-n97-fir...30-coming-soon

... it talks about using the product code "0576363".

This code is now reporting 22.0.108 as the latest version.



Someone at Nokia is having much fun at our expense .... we are not amused.


Ok, slightly amused - but if you can't laugh about it, what else can we do?
