Smile Reset

I posted this before . Somehow it seems to be lost . Anyway I don't know how to reinstall older firmware . Since Nokia doesn't publish older and newer firmware parallel . So , instead see if some of the suggestions in my post here can help to solve the issue .
Be aware , before a hard reset to have a Backup of your personal data :

Sadly not possible - the update process only appears to allow upgrade, not a downgrade.

Even if you changed to a product code that say only had v20 as the latest, it would probably still say the same.

Smile Reset + functioning

Reset doesn't bring back the old firmware . The recent installed new firmware stays in the device . The reset removes all old data - also unwanted and useless data - from the phone : makes it shopfresh like a new phone ("mean and clean") .
Afterward just reinstall the desired personal data . Now the functioning of the phone should be fast and proper again .

To keep memory clean read tips from this thread :

Here is a discussion about firmware :

Smile Many Questions !

I will stick to the first one . My post here :
http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...ad.php?t=81021
is a step-wise solution . Start with 1) . Doesn't work ? Go to step 2) etc. etc. etc. etc.
When you have a Backup , you can also go straight to step 4) or 5) .
About reflashing you can read the sticky thread of Stuclark on top of the N95 Forum .

Smile Post Your Findings

Hi Gentlemen , I hope Soft Reset will do , it is he easiest to handle . After the soft reset (Factory Settings) , you only got to personalize the settings again . But all other data are safe . Sometimes is not enough ...

Make a different thread for other questions , like " Turkish Productcode for N95 8 Gb ? " . Etc.

Regards jApi NL

Well I have done the soft reset, no difference to be honest, still same as before, after I have done the hard reset phone was brilliant it was so fast, of course there was nothing on it, and Backed up with my contacts, message, settings, bookmark and calender/ notes....
then went slow again, then I have deleted lots of videos, images and songs, and my memory status atm;
Mass Memory
7672 Capacity
2705 Used
4967 Free
I am sure that before my memory was more than half full but it wasn't slow like this. (since Update FW i believe).
I will search the Language pack once I get this NSS working on Vista...

regards..

Smile Memories

For fast functioning of the phone it is important that C: drive (Device memory) and especially RAM or D: drive have enough MB . Mass Memory or E: drive doesn't have so much impact on speed . On my phone :
E: max 7,6 GB , Free 1,2 GB
C: max 136 MB , Free 106
D: max 111 MB , Free 72 (on boot up)
Z: = ROM (Firmware) 19 MB
You can use Nokia Device Status or Patrick Frei PhoNetInfo to check the free memory :

Thanks that is good, but still, I don't understand when I go to Contacts (from my shortcut scroll down button) takes about 2 second to open it. Also some other application opens late as well. This all started after 30.0.018 installed...

Smile Battery Life

Maybe battery life is better ? I really would not know the right answer . It can allso be a "heavy" loaded theme or background picture .

When it is a corrupted file , slowing the device down , it will be quite a workaround to find out .
1) backup personal data like calendar and contacts
2) hard reset the device
3) install all third party apps separatly , checking the phone meanwhile after each install
4) just sync calendar , contacts and maybe bookmarks (the less the better) .
5) do all settings manually , or at least separately (like accesspoints)

Maybe getting used to the new speed is a solution as well .....

: Regards jApi NL
