As WPxDominion says, It's back to v21.0.045 firmware after 24 hours.

Place your bets for the next firmware change...

I've seen something on my N97 (v21) that could suggest Nokia might introduce multiple homescreens in a future firmware update, perhaps even v30.

Some of you may have seen the following photo on the AAS homepage (courtesy of Rafe)...



Notice the dots at the bottom of the screen, where us N97 owners would usually find our dialler. For those of you who don't know, on the N8's Symbian^3 OS, this indicates how many homescreens there are and which homescreen you're currently on.

Well, sometimes when I change from my homescreen to the menu or an application running in the background, a dot very similar to these appear in the same place on my own screen. There's only the one, not three, which suggests the current software might already support multiple homescreens but somehow it's been deliberately limited. There are two possible things I can think of that might do this:
  • Removing any option to add more screens, so we're stuck with the default one, or
  • Applying a limit, in the code itself, of 6 widgets (including the clock - one screen's worth) which is why only one dot shows.
Before anyone pipes up... Yes, I know the N97 isn't a Symbian^3 phone and I know it won't be upgraded to it... ever... but most of us enjoy kinetic scrolling on our N97's because it was ported over from a newer version of Symbian. Multiple homescreens might be possible through the same methods.

Anyway, the dot only appears sometimes and disappears very quickly, so I can't get a screenshot or photo of it yet. While I keep my eye out for it, has anyone else noticed this?

This site is reporting a V.30 firmware upgrade is coming: http://hpapplication.com/2010/06/nok...date-30-0-016/

There is no information on the date that it will be released. So far, I haven't seen it in the software updater. I'm in Canada, so I expect it would not be one of the first regions to get the update if it exists.

A few days ago, someone who claims to be a Nokia engineer said there will be a software update for the N97 soon. I cannot confirm he is an engineer as anyone can call themselves a Nokia engineer on that site and post a comment.

Just tried to use the Nokia on-line firmware checker and it's missing the product code input box... see attached screen shot.

*EDIT*

Back up again now. Still v21.0.045

The input box for the product code on the 'Can I update?' page seems to be back.

Unfortunately, it seems the latest firmware for the product code 0570817 is 21.0.045.

Shame really as I've been holding off doing a hard reset for weeks as I want to wait for the new FW.

The last two updates I did were on 1/4/10 (V21.0105 OTA) & 1/2/10 (V21.0.45 via NSU). Keeping fingers crossed there might be an update tomorrow.
