Good news for E61 owners - firmware 3.0633.09.04

A x'mas present for E61 owners? Soon owners will be able to upgrade their phone to 3.0633.09.04.

What's new? I can't tell yet, but will be connectivity and VOIP issues. I will upgrade mine shortly when there is a time, as usual, I would need to reinstall my apps.

Some other people may be able to post the complete release notes.

Don't go calling your Nokia care centre yet, it'll take a while as usual.

Hi!!!!

Be carefull with the update, I`ve upgraded my E61 from 1... to 2... and got problems with the music player (each time a songs begins, the phone resets to default equalizer profile and to get the setting I`ve fixed got to move the volume button. IŽve reinstalled the update and got the same problem; all this with Nokia sotware updater. Just have to take my phone to a Nokia center to get repaired and with the FIRST firmware installed on it. No more problems with the music player.
Regards

Actually I agree, even though my phone still runs the original 1.06 firmware, I have heard a lot of complaints about 2.06 and more importantly very little on the positive side of the upgrade. I gotta say that I don't have any big issues with my current 1.06. It still white-screens once in awhile but other than that no big problems. Until a firmware update promises to make the phone twice as fast, or some other dramatic improvement, I am not complaining (too much) about 1.06.

I got the newest firmware and I really like it, it works without a problem, I think my phone was stuck only 1time. When this v3 will be there, I will test it aswell, a pitty that I have to reinstall my apps again but its always worth it.

There seems to be two group of people. One who like to stay with 1.x and the rest who upgraded with 2.x.

My comment is although 2.x doesn't seems to bring any significant/visible improvement, it actually does minimize/eliminate reboots. This is one thing that annoys me in 1.x

Other that that, i have no complains on 2.x

I am in the 2.x camp as my phone came with it!! my only gripe is the media player/equaliser as i like my bass!! and ocassionally i have to reboot as mobile mail locks up/goes slow/ doesnt respond.

I tried the latest update the day I got the phone, wish I didn't have...

NSU bricked my phone and god only knows when my local Nokia service center will have it ready...

Apparently Nokia still can't figure out what most other companies already offer without problems - bug-free firmware updaters that is.

Smallboy,
Post step-by-step on how to test, and I'll try to test it. I usually use the normal setting for music player and worked fine for me.

Edit:
I set the equalizer to 'Bass booster' and played a song. Before a song ends, I clicked on next song, and went to equlizer again. The setting/tick still at "bass booster". Not sure if this what you mean.

My v1.06 crashes maybe once every 10 days or so, if not longer, and I tend to rush thru menu commands and generally give the phone a pretty good workout, so my unit seems pretty solid with this firmware. If v2.06 users are still complaining of crashes as well, I'm staying put for the time being!
