I'm continously getting a 'System error' message whenever I try to install some apps, such as Nokia Battery Monitor, Youtube Downloader and fMobi. This occurence only began recently after updating to Symbian Anna. I've installed many other apps and can still install other apps but I seem to have a problem with a select few. I have attempted to uninstall and reinstall the apps and also done a delete and restore after backup but still no change.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
Nokia N8 - Symbian Anna - 059C5Q8 - Unbranded - UK
I did the update yesterday via OVI.........
I get a "system error" message every time the phone starts
Can't get into my contacts at all, the timer pops up and then goes away! (There are 260 in memory and SPB Shell has access!!!)
Conversations won't run, says not available feature
Can't install the beta labs sleeping screen
Took multiple attempts to install OVI chat
All I want is a working phone! It was working better before the damn update!
It looks like there's something missing after the update
Tried *#7370# for return to factory defaults, no change
Tried re-installing Anna, no change
Anyone else having these issues too? Any solutions you can think of?
This is a UK UNBRANDED N8 bought directly from Nokia in Finland
Software version 022.014
Custom version 022.014.226.06
I have a Nokia Astound and after performing a hard reset on it started having the problem of "System Error" when installing certain applications from Beta Labs or the OVI Store.
After looking around for a solution for quite a while , the thing that solved my problem was this: I went to Applications Manager/Installed Apps and uninstalled the Smartinstaller (also known as Nokia Smartinstaller). Then restarted the phone, tried again the installation of the applications I was having problems with (in my case it was Nokia Bubbles and You Tube Downloader) and they installed without problems.
Hope that this helps resolve your problem.
I can usually fix all kinds of errors and bugs on this phone but this one was killin me! Awesome fix, and one Id probably have never figured out on my own. Thanks!
