This is great! I just upgraded from Organiser R1B01 to R2B02, did a format (to remove preinstalled cr@p) and restored my latest backup. Everything went smoothly!

Haven't noticed any differences between the firmware versions though...

I can't be bothered to back everything up and do it yet, but it seems my CDA version is newer anyway?!?

Not sure if Orange will let you upgrade using this service yet because of all the operator specific stuff, but i'll check it out tommmorow.

Don't know, but I think it will loose the orange branding..that's why I don't think it will let you do it.

But I didn't end up going out tonight so i'm going to give it a try now.

just updated mine and it was simple and easy, as long as u follow the online step exactly

i have noticed a huge difference as i had R1A01 (i think ). this one seems to be faster loading and better clock too...

would also like to hear what other have to say after they have upgraded theirs.

Orange users are having issues upgrading as Orange has not approved this update yet and they may not..Thus after one attempts to update it will notify you that you already have the latest update.. As I know to-date, there are no Orange users that have been successful at upgrading.. The updater goes through a few checks before it update.. It still gives one the option of upgrading even after the "you have the latest upgrade" notification.. However, going through the painstaking process will still leave one with what they started with... And it will NOT remove that dumb Orange screen tag..

My guess is that they (Orange) might require users to go through them instead.. It makes total sense as I believe users are at risk of voiding their warranty if they fiddle around with the phone through some medium other then Orange. They technically would have to pay to fix your screw up..So if you have a contract phone you might be SOL.... Everything is at your own risk..

For everyone else.. The firmware update is all good... Hence my point on purchasing contract modified phones.. You will run into hassles like this. There are technical and economical reasons why it works out that way. Your carrier will always find a way to keep their arms around the throat of your phone.

I couldn't get it to run through my SOCKS5 port so I didn't bother anyway, seems I have an upto date version in any case.

What does the firmware version actually say???

As I know several Orange members have run the update and the update does notify them that it was successful.. However, after verification the system info still reports the older firmware.. My guess is that you will not find R3C on your Orange phone.. Just a guess..
