Not to be left out, the N97 mini gets updated too

Not to be left out, the Nokia N97 mini also got a firmware update today, with very similar content to its bigger brother. Version 11.0.045 is only (so far) available via NSU as a 160MB download. Comments welcome if you can add to the changelog/overview below

Read on in the full article.

Fire up NSU

if you connect your phone via the USB to the PC and start up the Nokia Sotware Updater it will tell you if there is an update for your particular phone.

Hope this update irons out some of the N97's .... minor flaws ( compared to the N97 Classic ). Let us know how it goes.

Not suggesting your usual *#7370# hard reset this time Steve??
I had somehow hoped that with this update, the n97 mini would also boot up with a similar amount to free RAM as the n97. But then...

NSU on my PC is not going beyond the "Identifying connected device" screen. I have been trying since the last 1 hour. Restarted my phone, removed battery, restarted PC, nothing works. Arghhhhh!!
Any suggestions anyone? Could this be because I am using PC suite and not OVI Suite???

I updated using PC Suite (with a little help from NSS) and it went smooth.

Uninstall PC Suite, then install it, and then try again.

You must have this update...it makes the phone run smooth like butter -

What help did you get from NSS? Was it just what you have written? I really want this update and it is now frustrating me that I am not able to get it... :(

No, I'm not recommending a hard reset afterwards - it's not needed, because there's plenty of space on disk C. So even if 10MB is lost to old settings and general rubbish, there's still oodles of space left and it's not a big deal.

To hardreset or not hardreset

I have the N97 "classic" and upgraded the firmware to v21.0.45 (equivalent to new N97Mini FW update). I didn't need to hard-reset it at all. I had about 29 MB left on the C: drive (and I have the new OVI Maps 3.3 installed, but not the N-Gage app). After the update I actually gained 2 MB in C:

Overall, this update makes the phone snappier (also browsing) and more stable. Only culprits I have is that I actually think the new NSeries2 theme is uglier and that the WebKit browser sometimes spontaniously quits (not often, but more than before), it's not a big issue though.

Could Nokia prevent it from dying on me at around 5pm while at work.The battery isn't good.

On a sidenote, are there any extended battery packs available for the mini?

I can't plug it into my work comp and risk it gettin nicked.Neither can I switch off and restart in the middle of work (using a spare charged battery).

Good to see Nokia opened the taps on FW releases,they are becoming quite frequent(for atleast N97s)now.

You can change it in the settings.
