Going to try doing it at work but I think the firewall stops it so might have to wait until I get home.

One problem though, got a mate coming over - how rude is it to update a phone whilst entertaining?

Quite rude I reckon.

Version 2tastic.

Woo! I'm on v20 now

Initial impressions:
  • Even with theme transition effects on it's faster than before.
  • Auto-rotate is faster.
  • Lock slider hasn't posed any problems so far.
  • Kinetic scrolling is a godsend but, because of habit, I'm still finding myself using the scrollbars! Kinetic scrolling is sometimes laggy, so I might format it entirely and re-update when I get home tonight.
  • I haven't noticed any new widgets but, from what I saw on v20 videos, I wouldn't want them anyway.
  • Some of the icons have changed, like the Msg Reader.
  • I can move the clock on the homescreen now, but will most likely keep it at the top anyway.
  • There was no extra space made available on the C: drive, but this will be remedied when I format and re-install later.
  • The update wiped my music library so had to wait for ages for it to scan in my 4 days worth of music. Once it finished tho, I found the changes very welcoming, such as the album art and the new presentation of tracks within albums. The volume controls even come up when you tap the album art when listening to music.
Lastly, and I know that it's psychological... but the phone *feels* heavier!

Don't rush to do it Banzibarn.

By that I mean don't just install it. It's quite a large firmware/platform update and I found it better to Hard reset C: and format Mass Memory before installing v20.

I then did not use PC Suite's Backup, except for syncing Contacts, Calendar, Notes and Bookmarks.

Rather, I reinstalled everything piece meal and find the phone much faster, This is probably due to the vanilla install in part, but also more reliable and problem free. I know a few other people on this forum have adopted this approach because of such a large upgrade and they are reporting much better results because of it.

Time consuming I know... but worth it in the long run.

A very nice theme called Glasso by mandeep, takes up 2MB on C: though.

You can download it for free here:-

How odd... yours is the unbranded N97 UK Country Variant Black alright.

I suppose we need the product codes for Yolmol and zxon are on... unless of course Nokia have withdrawn it... nah!
