N97 stuck on v11 firmware? Try for v12 now

If your SIM-free Nokia N97 has been 'stuck' on v11 for ages, try your 'Sw Update' application again today. People are reporting that v12.0.026 is now available as a 700k over-the-air update. And no, we've no idea what took Nokia so long either.... All data should be preserved, but an extra backup can't do any harm, just in case.

Read on in the full article.

Some people with the same UK black product code are reporting that it's not available by FOTA but is available using the ovi suite beta updater or NSU. That is very weird!

For me it was only available by FOTA which made a pleasant change!

You'll be lucky to ever get that update on a three branded phone!

They are usually very very very slow (or don't bother) to release a phones second or third updates. Three don't like to invest the time in approving what they consider to be minor updates.

Still not on dutch unbranded black N97, vodafone network

I wonder if it will be available for me before v2.0 is released.
Maybe I don't care anymore and just hope more and more for that 2.0!

Have to remove by battery almost daily ;(

I did it FOTA, then restored settings from a mem card backup to get the wifi and BT stuff back.

NOTE you'll need to manually change the message storage setting back to "mass storage" as it will default back to C:. Really annoying is that.

WiFi has disappeared from my Black N97 now.

I can't find any way of getting it back either, as i don't have a backup to restore.

Stuck now. What do i do?

(i updated using *#0000#)

Help !

My N97 is running v 11.0.021 with a custom version 11.0.021.213.02. If I do *#0000# the handset tells me there are no available updates. If I use Ovi it tells there are updates available to 12.0.026 yet after I press "update" it tells me the software update failed (citing lots of reasons including failing to connect to the internet.

The internet connection is good; having tried both wired and wireless connections on two seperatre machines.
